Swarm is a fully decentralized capital marketplace platform built on blockchain technology that is entirely owned by the community.
Our vision is to allow anyone, anywhere in the world, to participate in the value creation within the crypto asset category and to capture opportunity in new types of assetbacked tokens, anything from distressed real estate to solar installations to rainforest preservation projects and many more. Swarm turns financial opportunities from exclusive into inclusive. We provide the empowerment, access, and tradability so anyone can take part and have their crypto funds work for them.
With Swarm we will:
- Make it extremely simple for hands-off, or novice crypto investors to participate in a composite of wealth creation resulting from utilizing the crypto space
- Create a viable framework and hub for crypto investors to invest into alternative, asset-backed token opportunities, in order to escape market volatility.
- Introduce a new alternative liquidity hub for project owners with attractive underlying economics to find capital and engage with the investor community.
Core Objective: Follow The Experts
Swarm allows experts to run their own syndicates and have other crypto investors join them in projects and deal opportunities, with no middlemen involved. We are building an ecosystem of experts with any kind of edge (track record, trading ability, unique data, unique deal access, etc.) to allow crypto investors to follow and co-invest with them. This changes the mechanics of the traditional fund/GP model, as investments can be as large or small as the investor wants them to be, and they can operate the fund structures very flexibly. Also, it breaks up the syndicates of gatekeepers and rigid structures of institutional capital as it is deployed today.
Core Objective: Combine Token Flexibility With Real Opportunities
Crypto investors have appreciated the flexibility and immediate market-making function that tokenization has introduced. Tokens and their underlying smart contracts represent the ultimate opportunity of two parties to come together and interact without middlemen. Part of that is the freedom to trade or co-own tokens. That is the freedom we want to bring to any kind of asset class. When a participant likes an opportunity running on Swarm they will be able to pool funds together with others and invest as little or as much as they want to realize the project and see the opportunity grow. At the same time, all the projects become tradable asset-backed tokens. Participants can buy or sell these tokens whenever they want, and they decide how long to engage. All trades are made using blockchain technology, making them fast, transparent and secure. 8 Core Objective: Collective Intelligence We believe in the swarm intelligence hypothesis that decentralized networks can out-compete traditional centralized entities, and that the trust and transparency embedded in blockchains highly facilitates this. The foundational element of the blockchain is data transparency, which provides a basis for an unprecedented degree of machine-driven methods to generate insights and take actions. Ultimately, with Swarm we envision a degree of investment automation, that helps participants make informed and data-driven investment decisions, while using reputational scores to maintain the health of the market. But automation goes further, where every step of the investment process, from workflows to set-up of legal structures can and will be automated over time, creating an efficient system without single points of failure or control.
