The three purposes of Crowdstart Capital are:
- To invest in a relatively unexplored niche-market based on decades of experience in business, blockchain technology and investment.
- To open up investment opportunities in what is commonly known as venture funding to a larger crowd.
- To take a leading role in the encouragement of innovation and adoption of blockchain technology (more here) through investment, mentoring and application promotion.
The essentials for a token holder
Any potential investor in Crowdstart Capital tokens should be aware of the absolute risk of losing the entire investment amount. There will be no guarantees of any return on investment in case of failure. Additionally, no guarantees can be made that tokens will be traded at above initial purchase price.
- Crowdstart Capital will put tokens up for sale on one or more cryptocurrency exchanges. The tokens will represent participation in the fund and will be openly tradable after the sale has ended.
- 2,500,000,000 CSC tokens at $0.01 per token is the maximum amount of tokens to be sold at the initial coin offering to take place.
- Possession of tokens will provide exposure to a previously exclusive investment market.
- In case of a successful exit, the possibility of a repurchasing exists, allowing token holders to sell back their tokens to Crowdstart Capital.
- Any repurchased tokens will be taken out of the market, increasing the relative economic interest in the still active tokens.
