Endeavour Ventures believes that crypto-economics could be as powerful a driver of change as the internet has been. We will be at the forefront of the industry in Asia with the networks to invest in and help develop these protocols.

Infrastructure Development:
  • For institutional funds to be able to invest in the crypto-economy, the infrastructure needs to develop further. Some early movers have benefitted from offering basic services to the crypto-economy e.g. wallets, fiat on-ramp, vanilla and derivative exchanges.
  • There is a need for custodians, brokers and origination platforms amongst other solutions to develop before we see institutional buy-in.
  • The economics will be centralized as the infrastructure is built out, we’ll be investing in this first stage through traditional equity structures.
Dissemination and Cross-Pollination
  • Currently security tokens are subject to the same rules and regulations as equity offerings so there is limited reason to want to utilize them over traditional equity.
  • Security tokens have additional benefits over traditional equity such as: 24/7 markets, fractional ownership, rapid settlement, reduction in direct costs (capital tables automatically maintained), automated compliance, and the ability to utilize smart contracts.
  • We believe that assets, which have typically been in the realm of equity investments will be tokenized.
Decentralised Dissemination
  • There are limited applications of new protocols that have been created to date with crypto-currencies. So far we’ve seen promising projects in sharing file storage, sharing compute power, ensuring ticket authenticity, flipping centralized marketing models, rewarding peer producers, transferring digital rights, and enabling identity verification, amongst other things.
  • There hasn’t been any agreement on the most appropriate way to value these networks. The hype combined with Metcalfe’s law has made the market a moving feast.
