The First Insured Cross-Chain Accelerator For Cardano

CardStarter is a decentralized accelerator and swapping platform, connecting early stage Cardano innovators and projects with our community of backers. By launching on ERC20, CardStarter provides Cardano developers with the advantage of earlier support and funds. As soon as projects can deploy through Cardano’s Plutus platform, CardStarter will migrate, and all projects who’ve been backed through us will be prepared to go live on Cardano’s Network.

What Does CardStarter Provide The Community?

Via our swapping platform, members of our community are provided secure access to sales of Cardano projects that are trusted and have been vetted by our team. Through a tiered system, holders of the $CARDS token gain guaranteed allocation to seed rounds, presales, and public sales of projects launching through our platform.

By establishing individual caps, and a fair distribution system, CardStarter protects our community backers from the risk of presale dumps. Our goal is to provide projects with a sustainable growth path, and prevent retail investors from being burned by whales selling for early profit as soon as projects hit an exchange.

Staking CARDS tokens, as described in the tiers below, is how our community can guarantee allocation in upcoming project sales:

A portion of our initial raise will establish the beginnings of our insurance fund built to protect our community from the financial risk of investing in a project that fails*. All projects who launch through our platform will be required to contribute to the growth of the insurance fund. Continuous staking of CARDS following the completion of an IDO ensures users will qualify for insurance protection related to that project.

* Our Insurance treasury is established to protect backers of projects that fail as a result of team negligence. Market influence and other extraneous forces are not subject to insurance coverage.

How Does CardStarter Support Developers?
