4 min readFeb 3, 2021


As well as looking to make the power of decentralized finance available to everyone through our easy to use suite of products, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to invest in the DAOventures vision for the future of DeFi.

What is DAOventures?

We’re bringing together the best of DeFi, offering users tools that will enable them to invest and manage their DeFi portfolio easier than ever before. By reducing the levels of complexity that keep many traditional or inexperienced investors from entering the space, we aim to open up the floodgates and make DeFi accessible to all.

DAOventures is a decentralized pooled asset manager that enables Liquidity Providers to invest in the best DeFi products. Utilising smart contracts and automated robo-traders, DAOventures acts similarly to a traditional VC, investing in the best performing DeFi assets and giving you, the user, the most optimized return.

Our core team are highly experienced in traditional finance, Fintech, blockchain technology and software architecture and come from previous roles at companies such as Google and Standard Chartered Bank. We have researched, analyzed and invested in the latest DeFi protocols to filter the best from the rest, and our main value proposition is focused on optimizing user journeys to deliver seamless experience and usability with the best performing strategies.

DAOventures Polkastarter IDO

Following a $1.3m Private Sale that attracted some of the top funds in the blockchain space such as Moonrock Capital, Magnus Capital, Astronaut Capital, GBV, Ascensive Assets and more, we are excited to announce that DAOVentures will be launching a public token sale on the popular Polkastarter platform on Thursday 15th February 2021.

Polkastarter (POLS) is a cross-chain token pool and auction protocol built on the Polkadot blockchain. The Polkastarter platform enables projects to raise capital in a decentralized environment and, since it’s launch back in October of 2020, the platform has helped various innovative blockchain and DeFi projects launch into the cryptosphere successfully.

The Polkastarter platform has successfully led 12 IDOs (Initial Decentralized Exchange Offerings) to date, with the permissionless structure allowing for straightforward, affordable and fast capital raises to take place. We believe that launching with Polkastarter will ensure a successful and smooth raise that is inclusive for all types of investor.

DVG holders can benefit from a range of staking incentives that will reward them for their efforts, including pool-specific rewards, reduced transaction fees and community related proposals for improvements.
