We're Angelblock

– a DeFi protocol aimed at solving the issues of fundraising for digital assets and making the process crypto native.

We are creating new forms of governance, while having learned from all of the do’s and don'ts of the previous generation of DeFi protocols. Apart from user generated governance power that influences protocol governance, we added post-raise governance to ensure startups are delivering and investor capital is protected to a higher degree than in traditional or off-chain methods.

Our Values

Community & Trust

In crypto, community comes first. The line between investor, entrepreneur, and community member is thin and sometimes it doesn’t exist at all. We approach all users equally. They are the ultimate feature.

Decentralization & Transparency

We believe that decentralized and transparent systems are the foundation on which the new economy will be built, allowing for more inclusiveness than ever before. We are here to do our part for this future.

On-chain Security

Greater transparency and security than off-chain solution with a novel staking mechanism that ensures all parties participate in an appropriate manner in accordance with the protocol.

Constant Growth

We’re constantly working on additional features that allow us to help crypto projects with their cap table management, on-chain vesting, and full transparent token distribution to make the life of Web 3.0. safer and easier.

Meet the Team!

Our team is crypto-native. We’ve been around the block once or twice, and know what it’s like to build even in bear markets, and we have the advisory board to get us to the next level.
