Project Description

CryptoWharf is a crypto native one stop shop for founders to pitch their start-up and raise funding from investors looking to access deals with high growth potential. Founders can create a fundraising round for their start-up and pitch their company to investors with a video. They can receive funding in any crypto and manage their treasury by earning interest and streaming day to day operating costs. Investors can access deals, invest with any crypto and mint an NFT after investing to share with their network. We believe that a seamless one stop shop for founders and investors will democratize innovation and catalyze the development of crypto ecosystems.

How it's Made

Our stack is Solidity / NodeJS / React. When a user logs in, ENS is integrated to make a more friendly wallet identification. We use Livepeer to allow founders to upload the pitch video of their project for investors to review on the platform. We use Worldcoin when an investor onboards to ensure authenticity. 0x is used to swap any ERC-20 tokens to the target coin that founders aim to raise. After an investment is completed, we generate and store the NFT including the project name and investment amount in IPFS and mint it to the investor’s wallet. In the long run we hope to include the legal contract as metadata on IPFS as well. Investors can then share the investment with their network via Lens Protocol. Founders can receive notifications whenever there’s a new investment in their projects by the integration of Push Protocol. After the round completes, Alluo is used to stream money to the project for use while earning interest on the remaining funds. Our fundraising and NFT contracts are both deployed on Polygon Mumbai so we’re able to mint the NFT for users due to the low cost and high QPS of Polygon.
