The Cycle of Investing: How Exiting A Position Can Yield Positive Results

In an era and industry riddled with hypercompetitiveness and opportunities, the vast majority of teams turn to investors to lift their project off the ground. Time is of the essence in the blockchain space, and the kind of money needed is most easily snatched from the jaws of venture capitalists, investment firms, and other such institutions.

On the flip side of that coin, investors understand the potential some of these projects have, and are always eager to listen to new propositions. Alas, the image of what seems like an almost symbiotic relationship fades as we examine it under a closer lens.

The way current markets are constructed make it difficult for said investors to exit their positions, in whole or in part, without causing some level of harm to their respective projects. A combination of vesting schedules (sometimes lack thereof), small liquidity pools and a volatile marketplace make these waters difficult to navigate.

Investors: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

There is a negative image closely associated with investors, especially when it pertains to the world of cryptocurrencies. The truth of the matter is that fundamentally speaking, investors and the like aren’t harmful — but are in fact beneficial — to markets; the circumstances and means however are crucial for determining the sort of impact they would have with their actions.

Given the circumstances in the crypto market, it’s hard to blame investors for wanting to exit as soon as possible; if Bitcoin taking a 5% dip means startup projects get wiped off the charts, any sensible investor would try to at least convert their tokens to a more stable alternative in the shortest available time frame.

Speaking of startups and emerging projects, most of them face unfavorable odds, and a tiny minority manages to solve a problem prominent enough to guarantee a foreseeable success. This is a tough pill for some retail investors to swallow, as everyone is looking for the next hidden gem that will pump by a factor of a thousand — but on the other hand you can’t blame the impression individuals may have considering how these projects are marketed towards them.

In contrast, these same projects aren’t marketed towards VCs in the same manner. This is because VCs examine these projects under different lenses, and more importantly, because they aren’t looking for the next Doge or Shib. A relatively simple 100% would yield more than satisfying returns to institutions as the amounts they invest are monumental in comparison to those of retailers; however, since tokens have a tendency to pump upon listing, the subsequent “dump” that follows tends to have devastating consequences.

This isn’t to say that all investors are detached from the projects they invest in, nor is it to say that every investor is deeply concerned either — the truth is somewhere in the middle. Yes, there are investors that dump as soon as possible without any care or concern, but some — if not all — have no other choice. It’s safe to say that most investors would want their projects to thrive, if not for merit, then at the very least for monetary gain.

Yet, at some point institutions will look to lock their profits in and prevent the aforementioned future loss or risk. But, do to that the token shares are locked, no matter how high or low the token price is in the secondary market, there are no open markets for the institutions to cash in or lock profits or losses. It’s more common that most of the unlocks to occur after the market turns bear, and the previous ‘profits’ also disappear.

Now, There’s an Alternative

What Accessifi allows these investors to do is to mint SAFT NFTs to sell their positions at a desirable rate to retail investors, without impacting the market and liquidity pools whatsoever. This in turn gives retailers the opportunity to get in on their projects of interest at an earlier stage, without needing the connections or vast amount of wealth to do so.

This dynamic also improves the underlying token growth and effectively extends a project’s lifespan. In a world where it’s not uncommon for ideas with actual potential to die, that alone would be worth creating the Accessifi protocol; and in a world where investors can bring such ideas to life, instead of burning them to no avail, it’s worth building the bridges that bring the right people together.
