Open-source custom blockchain Waves Platform announced today that as part of its plans to expand the Waves ecosystem over the coming year, it is now proud to launch the Waves Lab.
Waves Lab is a blockchain technology incubator that will focus on pre-ICO startups and teams who are creating disruptive solutions to real-world problems using Waves blockchain infrastructure.
Waves will be providing full support for businesses and entrepreneurs who meet its requirements, ensuring that their projects get off to a flying start. Guidance will include seed funding, legal support, advice, resources, and marketing.
Ensuring that a project is well-funded is critical to its long-term success. Additionally, securing early funding is a strong indicator of the market that a project is worth backing with additional tranches of investment in its public sale. Waves Lab will provide seed funding of up to $300,000 for the right initiatives.
Regulatory compliance is only one element of ensuring the success of an ICO project.
Waves Lab will also provide a series of advisory services covering elements of the business case, such as:
· Technical architecture review
· Product market fit
· Token economics
· ICO advisory
· Exchange listing advisory
The Waves team said “as a foremost blockchain platform, it has a wide range of contacts and considerable influence within the wider crypto industry, they plan to leverage these connections
to help projects expand their reach in the blockchain world.”
