BLOCKCHAIN & NFT PROGRAM

Overview

In partnership with Animoca Brands, Brinc has launched a virtual program focusing on global startups in the blockchain and NFT space. The program, called Launchpad Luna, aims to identify, mentor, and invest in promising blockchain and non-fungible tokens (NFT) startups that are shaping the future of the Web and driving digitalization. Launchpad Luna will also accept high-potential startups seeking to adopt blockchain and NFTs into their core business.

The Launchpad Luna accelerator identifies and fosters NFT innovation in the fields of culture, art, entertainment, media, gaming, streaming, collectibles, insurance, finance, and data management; DeFi and additional verticals will be added in the future. High-potential early-stage projects and startups around the globe that are accepted into the acceleration program will receive training, a launchpad, and monetary investment between USD $250,000 – $500,000 in exchange for equity and tokens.

Launchpad Luna aims to shape the blockchain industry to embrace awareness of environmental concerns such as climate change. Admission to the program will be prioritized for climate-conscious projects that drive digitalization, that place emphasis on proof-of-stake protocols and sidechains instead of proof-of-work, and have lower overall physical footprints. Accepted entrants will receive training in optimizing a blockchain business to minimize energy use and carbon emissions.

Join the leading Blockchain and NFT program and get access and support from the best network of mentors and experts available.
