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:
When looking at the holistic crypto landscape, countless blockchains are trying to establish themselves as the go-to platform for blockchain adoption. Each of them offers something wholly unique to attract developers and investors alike. Polygon, Solana, Ferrum, Polkadot; the list goes on.
Unfortunately, each of them suffers from the same issue we set out to solve on Binance Smart Chain. Now, all blockchains: there is no single, safe space for investors to participate in private presale offerings across multiple blockchains without sacrificing project quality, investment contribution, or ease of use.
Enter The Lightning Cross-chain Incubator and Launchpad.
Benefits to holders
Holders of Lightning’s underlying token, $LIGHT, will now be able to participate in private presale offerings for projects on any blockchain, all from a single, safe space.
With access to quality, verified projects, worthwhile contribution amounts, and reserved allocations, investors from any background can now access private presale offerings with complete peace of mind.
As before, all projects, regardless of blockchain, will be audited, developers KYC and team tokens vested with our partner ValueDeFi before they are available for holders to invest in them.
Benefits to Projects
For developers building their projects within the Lightning Incubator, they now have access to a growing, dedicated community of investors regardless of the blockchain on which they develop.
This community helps to remove the barriers to entry for some nascent blockchains by providing projects with access to fair, fast, and open liquidity generation via our native, integrated launchpad.
With this announcement, Lightning continues to deliver its goal to be the only truly Decentralized Venture Capital ecosystem.
