For Projects

Projects that seek incubation through Lightning will have the opportunity to gain widespread exposure through BSC News coverage.

While reviewing the applications for the Lightning Incubator, the team realized that there were a lot of good, profitable ideas that did not meet high standards for the Lightning Incubator. Many of these projects would provide a lot of value for investors, but they weren’t as unique as we would like. Further, many of these projects were almost ready to launch, but they did not have the resources to do it independently. Providing our services only to the highest quality projects seemed to miss many opportunities for our investors.

We present the Lightning Cross-Chain Launchpad for all blockchains to provide…


The Lightning Incubator is the first Decentralized Venture Capital (DeVC) ecosystem built on Binance Smart Chain.

We initially created the Incubator on the Binance blockchain, exclusively for Binance Smart Chain.

Our goals were simple: bring disruptive, innovative projects to BSC while revolutionizing the IDO experience for investors.

However, to be a truly Decentralized Venture Capital ecosystem, we need to embrace that first part: “decentralized.” To do that, we need to expand our horizons.

We are pleased to announce the next step for the Lightning Incubator and the Lightning DeVC ecosystem:

Cross-Chain IDOs

When looking at the holistic crypto landscape, countless blockchains are…

Partnership Details

All Lightning Incubated IDOs must undergo security audits through our preferred partner…


The Lightning Incubator is the first Decentralized Venture Capital ecosystem on Binance Smart Chain.

We have developed a solution to incentivize and reward all token holders, provide tiered investors with reserved allocations, and keep the possible contributions sizeable and worthwhile.

The fundamental problems of existing IDO Launchpads are that tiers have a very high barrier to entry. Even if you do qualify for a high tier, your possible maximum contribution is still largely insignificant.

None of that is truly decentralized. It’s simply centralized around a minority of people who have very large funds.

Not only will The Lightning Incubator change…


Applying to the Lightning Incubator

Applications to the incubation program are now live. Applicants can submit proposals on our website.

To aid candidates in the application process, we have curated a submission composition guide and provided helpful evaluation tips. The following section is for applicants, or project founders, who wish to join the Lightning Incubator. Please read through this information carefully before applying.


Lightning VC Airdrop

Lightning stands in solidarity with those impacted by the $GOMIX and $FAIRMOON incidents. To support investors who lost funds to these projects, we are gifting a care package using our Team tokens. The Lightning Vampire Care AirDrop will distribute 1% of the total supply of the first Lightning Incubator IDO as an airdrop to wallets affected by these incidents. $GOMIX and $FAIRMOON exemplified the necessity for IDO trust-proofing and quality assurance. Among countless other scams and rugs, these situations demonstrate why Binance Smart Chain desperately needs an Incubator dedicated to trust-proofing.

The $GOMIX incident

Once a hyped and promising project, $GOMIX raised approximately…

Token Generator

ValueDeFi will provide a 1 click solution to generate BEP20 tokens for Lightning Incubated projects. As many projects don’t require complex logic inside their token contract, we are offering a possibility to generate a representative token through a generator solution.
