Looking Back on Our Vision
Three years ago, we embarked on a mission to reshape the fundraising landscape. Our vision was clear - to create a platform that enables anyone in the world to get access to and participate in early-stage fundraising of Web3 projects, a practice typically reserved for insiders only.
A few weeks later, we had the MVP ready and designed the token economics powering the platform. With the September 29th, 2020 public sale, $POLS was distributed to early supporters.
A few months following the public sale, $POLS reached an all-time high of $7.51, with a market cap of $360M. Currently, $POLS is now on 52 markets and has over 48K holders, with +12k staking addresses.
Today, $POLS is the catalyst of and driving force behind Polkastarter, where we continuously aim to democratize access and redefine the way communities interact with digital assets and the projects they support.
