Table of Contents

Colony Lab, a prominent player within the Avalanche ecosystem, is revolutionizing the landscape of early-stage crypto investments. They have now launched a groundbreaking feature that should democratize access to crypto seed rounds, which were previously exclusive to venture capitalists and high-net-worth individuals. Colony Lab has a vibrant community of over 8,000 active users, collectively worth around $200 million.

Transforming early-stage investments

This new concept is designed to provide unprecedented flexibility for crypto investors by allowing them to trade tokens during their lockup period.

The 'Liquid Vesting' feature operates entirely on-chain and ensures that all transactions are transparent and secure. It offers the possibility to trade tokens that are not yet fully vested, without any negative impact on the secondary market. This approach maintains the integrity of the vesting process and enhances liquidity, therefore raising investor confidence.

Elie Le Rest, CEO & Co-Founder of Colony Lab, elaborated on the potential of this new feature, stating, "When we developed the platform and the 'Liquid Vesting' feature, our aim was to make investing in crypto simple and flexible for everyone. We hope these enhancements will create more opportunities for early investors and improve liquidity in the primary market. Our goal is to transform investment practices in the blockchain world by prioritizing clarity, security, and openness. Colony Lab is at the forefront of making early-stage investments more dynamic and accessible."

$CLY governance token

The Colony token is Colony Lab’s utility and governance token, integral to participating in decision-making and benefiting from the ecosystem’s growth. It plays a crucial role in the Colony Lab platform, facilitating transactions, rewarding users, and providing a means for staking and earning returns within the Avalanche network.

A new era for crypto investing?

Colony Lab's introduction of 'Liquid Vesting' is set to redefine the norms of early-stage crypto investing. It allows greater fluidity in how investments can be managed during the vesting period. With 'Liquid Vesting', Colony Lab is making the investment process more inclusive and ensures that it aligns with the nature of the crypto market. This innovative approach is expected to attract a broader range of investors and expand the reach of the Avalanche ecosystem.
