The private market, or investment instruments that are not traded on public exchanges, was historically reserved for corporations and wealthy individuals. Private equity, venture capital, debt financing, and lending are some examples of the private market. Private market assets are proven to result in better returns on investments for private investors for decades.
However, making an investment in a private market transaction has been restricted to larger, institutional, professional investors who are capable of injecting a large quantum of capital into a transaction. Hence, retail investors, the public, don't have access to venture-scale returns on their investments as their access is limited to public markets such as the stock market and today's CEX space. On the other hand, private companies issue private ownership materials such as equities or debts to access financing, which is often injected by only private investors.
Thanks to Web3, tokenization enabled a trustless, fast, and efficient way of pooling capital together for investors to leverage the power of collectivity to access private assets. Simultaneously, Web3 enabled private companies to issue tokens that represent ownership in the network, creating a new financing instrument for them to access capital and liquidity. However, even though Web3 helped to lower barriers, retail investors have again been restricted from accessing a democratized, seamless, and secure way of deploying capital and liquidity across private tokens. Moreover, token issuers, aka "Web3 projects", have also suffered from the high costs of issuing tokens and accessing capital and sustainable liquidity.
Hence, an efficient, democratized, seamless, and secure token and liquidity financing platform is needed for both retail investors and Web3 projects.
Introducing finceptor, a tokenized financing platform that enables Web3 protocols to raise capital and protocol-owned liquidity via liquidity vaults and secondary token offerings with automated token management and launchpad plug-ins. finceptor builds DeFi liquidity infrastructures for Web3 protocols to issue vaults, tokens, and bonds to attract capital from the public.
Token issuers -- DeFi protocols, Web3 games, DAOs, and other initiatives -- have three phases of their token development: pre-launch, launch, and post-launch. Each phase requires a specialized, structured, and efficient financing instrument that enables Web3 projects to access financing. Respectively, finceptor builds three Web3 financing tools to meet these requirements: Liquidity Vaults, Launchpad, and Bonds.
- Liquidity Vaults (LV): LVs are financing contracts that enable pre-launch Web3 projects to issue vaults and access to protocol-owned locked liquidity for their future tokens. At this stage, Web3 projects seek liquidity financing on the premise of future tokens and are entitled to lock-up terms with pre-defined deal terms.
- Launchpad Plug-in: Launchpad deals are financing and token launch tools for launch-stage Web3 projects to issue tokens, conduct initial offerings, and create a secondary trading market. ITOs cover initial decentralized exchange offerings and are similar to Web3 launchpads.
- Bonds: Bonds are financing tools for post-launch Web3 projects, enabling them to issue bonds for their publicly traded tokens and offer structured discounts to access capital and liquidity.
