The Market Overview: Why OpenPad? | OpenPad
The Story, Market, and Philosophy behind OpenPad.
Web3 investment space today is Web2-operated crypto investment with high-entry capital expectation, capital inefficient investing models, and no guaranteed allocations without token utility, insurance reserves and public good education
The world needs fair and capital-efficient resource allocation and fundraising; hence OpenPad ends the world of tier-system, first-come-first-serve (FCFS), lottery games or minimum staking requirements in worldwide early-stage token sale/fundraising platforms, aka launchpads.
OpenPad is a capital-efficient and democratic Web3 Launchpad & Investment DAO, operating as a community-run VC and lowering the investment barriers to only $1 while enabling Web3 startups to have fair and worldwide fundraising. OpenPad unlocks the sealed doors of Web3 investment, allowing everyone to invest in either early-stage or high-barrier Web3 assets collectively with a community-operated treasury.
We believe in the power of stories. Stories unite us, stories inspire us, and stories empower us. We have always rooted for the underdogs, the Rockys, the Stephen Currys of the world. We idolized how the unfavored, the disadvantaged came out on top when no one expected them to. Dawn of the digital age and blockchain technology showed that Davids could indeed triumph over Goliaths, and we believe people can also triumph over centralized figures of authority. This is why we are here, why we have founded OpenPad, to give the little guy a fighting chance.
We value openness, publicness, gamification, and decentralization. These are the core concepts and pillars upon which we have built OpenPad. We are the minds who founded OpenPad, but OpenPad is not ours. OpenPad exists as you exist. OpenPad is open as you are open. OpenPad is as decentralized as its citizens are. No decentralized project can survive without its community, the ones with greater voice and rights. So, you make OpenPad open. You're empowered. You are the ones with complete control over the economics and the governance of the OpenPad. OpenPad is owned by its citizens, and everyone can be a citizen of the OpenPad, which is what makes OpenPad public.
We see OpenPad inventions as a game with a purpose that drives science and entertainment. Fun is necessary for existence. What about decentralization? Well, this is easy to say, but hard-to-create an environment that completely lacks a central correlation device that acts as a trustful authority. Most existing crypto projects make markets based on the idea that they are "fully" decentralized. Any rational person with little running knowledge of cryptos can unveil the curtain behind this sentiment to see it as it is, complete bullshit. Hence, the single-dimensional math equation asserts the open secret "Fully Decentralization == Fully Bullshit"” Including Bitcoin and Ethereum, nothing is fully decentralized. Is this time to pack up and go? Absolutely not. Decentralization must be examined under social, economic, governmental, architectural, logical, and algorithmic factors. It is a single term to call but requires greater attention, especially in the cryptoeconomics context. However, the dream of building a truly decentralized future is the governing motivation for why we engineers, designers, thinkers, researchers, and artists here.
Most crypto launchpads have centralized economics and governance, fallacies of market failure, capital inefficiency, and expensive-to-invest, and are not open to everyone, just open to big players. Big players are not necessarily bad actors. But, there is an underdog story we care about. We know what Pareto distribution in welfare is. Needless to say, they are not public. They are not math-backed. They are not vetted. We were. We are. We will be. But of course, they are fully decentralized :)
Well, the problems exist. What about solutions? This is where OpenPad comes into play. OpenPad developed DAO governance and a new decentralized economic model to overcome the possible suffering points of centralized economics and governance of crypto projects. OpenPad offers new frameworks for solving capital inefficiencies in crypto markets with skyrocketed capital utilities. We acknowledge that most launchpads are expensive-to-invest, so start with just $1 in OpenPad with no minimum requirements, making us open to everyone. Another problem was the lack of token utilities and incentives, which is why no investor has compelling reasons to hold the token for more than a few seconds. In OpenPad, investors have count-to-infinity reasons to hold the tokens, empowered by massive purpose-driven utilities and game-theoretical incentive designs.
We're open to everyone. Everyone can invest in OpenPad projects. How openness is achieved is another innovation OpenPad offers. This is an algorithmic, mathematical, and game-theoretical design OpenPad developed for you.
No lies. No bullshit. Algorithms, machine learning, and economics are our allies. They help us solve unsolved launchpad allocation problems, openness and fairness challenges, and beyond. Now it's time to have fun and innovate the entire space of capital investment and crypto launchpads.

Web3 investment space today is Web2-operated crypto investment with high-entry capital expectation, capital inefficient investing models, and no guaranteed allocations without token utility, insurance reserves, and public good education. At OpenPad, we developed a community-run treasury investment model, lowering the investment barriers to $1 with a 100x more efficient capital allocation model for retail investors, allowing everyone to invest with 100% guaranteed allocation. Moreover, we designed multiple financial instruments, including insurance funds, dividend and renting models, interest pools, and community-operated treasuries for fair and efficient Web3 investment.
The world needs fair and capital-efficient resource allocation; hence OpenPad ends the world of tier-system, first-come-first-serve (FCFS), lottery games, or minimum staking requirements in worldwide early-stage token sale platforms, aka launchpads.
To empower golden voice over all sizes of Web3 investors, OpenPad offers guaranteed allocation for everyone.
Simply put, the economic model of OpenPad is designed to be the best strategy for all investors in the Web3 market, meaning that investors’ best choice in the Web3 investment market will always be OpenPad in terms of fairness, capital efficiency, amount of guaranteed allocation per investor and the overall utility.
OpenPad is a more democratized, transparent, on-chain, and citizen-driven version of what we’re familiar with the market players, owned by its community, to empower decentralized investment, ownership, and consensus in the OpenPad ecosystem.
Voice will be provided via decentralized voting to OpenPad citizens from ecosystem initiatives, governance, details of the guaranteed allocation model, and project selection to all platform interactions towards a more open future of fundraising.
The philosophy behind the DAO aligns with the open-source and community-ownership culture of OpenPad, opening up democratic decision-making ways to its citizens and empowering the voice in the ecosystem.
We're a philosophic and economic experiment desire to rethink the inherited political economy - corrupted democratic institutions, centralized sinful economies – through the development of new trustless market dynamics.
Decentralized governance and self-sovereign identity at its core are fundamental politics that makes OpenPad OpenPad. From project proposal to voting, enabling auto- and self-governance are the superior paradigms we’ll deploy. DAO governance will be coordinated using tokens and NFTs that grant voting powers with state-of-the-art voting schemes. Whereas self-sovereign identity empowers visibility and control of how OpenPad citizens' data will be used in smart contracts. Tokens and NFTs are governance, utility, and access assets that you make social and financial transactions in the OpenPad DAO economy.
OpenPad is a multi-token economic experiment for future capital-efficient markets and fundraising.
