As it probably is already known to most, crypto launchpads provide platforms for launching new tokens and crypto projects. Most launchpads as they currently exist, do not direct more energy to other aspects of the process other than the public sales (Initial Dex Offerings) which is essentially a way for projects being launched on decentralized exchanges to get some crowdfunding.
Most people who participate in these sales are generally interested in short-term gains and are always looking to flip the tokens acquired as soon as they get listed. This, unfortunately, leads to the crashing of token prices shortly after it is listed. When this happens, even very good projects end up losing the momentum they had gathered from their communities to the dismay of the projects’ teams and their investors.
Gamepad is a new platform that is quite interested in solving the aforementioned issue. They are a decentralized network that will consolidate the massive reach between the team, the council, the community, the influencers, the exchanges, and many other allies to make sure projects that get incubated at Gamepad.co are blockbusters!
What is Gamepad?
This project is a next-generation decentralized accelerator for the metaverse era. It will provide a platform for the launching of GameFi and metaverse projects. This platform selects, nurtures, and then helps accelerate the top gamefi, guilds, and metaverse projects.
Among the features of Gamepad are an IDO launchpad, an incubation program, a platform for the sales of NFTs, and a lot of other features to let game makers and metaverse developers support their respective projects’ long-term principles and community strength.
It is a decentralized network that integrates the great reach between teams, the council, the communities, influencers, exchanges, and other players involved to ensure that projects on the platform are smashing hits.
