Hong Kong, May 18, 2021 — Liquefy, a leading crypto firm based in Asia, announced the official launch of Liquefy Labs, the incubation arm of Liquefy. As one of the top players in the security token offering scene in Asia and the Middle East, Liquefy Labs is expanding into decentralized finance, aiming to nurture next-generation Web 3.0 protocols and applications to bring the benefits of tokenization to the broader DeFi space and real asset owners. Liquefy Labs’ inauguration is an essential part of the overall strategy of Liquefy to create an ecosystem to support a crypto-native capital market for any form of asset.
Liquefy Labs provides dedicated resources to projects that are being incubated. DeFi programmers will receive actionable feedback from the in-house blockchain engineering team and gain Liquefy Labs’ internal technical resources to maximize the results. On top of that, in-incubation projects will be able to leverage Liquefy Labs’ extensive network of active and trusted investors, such as Alameda Research, Hashed, Huobi Ventures and OKEx Blockdream Ventures, to name a few. Projects will also get tailored marketing strategies from Liquefy Labs’ marketing team to make sure the products will draw the market’s attention and tell the stories behind them efficiently.
Liquefy Labs has been backing some of the most advanced DeFi projects in the space, and their native tokens are listed on top-tier exchanges, such as Binance, Huobi, OKEx, FTX, Upbit and Bithumb. Linear Finance is one of them. It’s currently the largest synthetic asset exchange by trading volume in the market, and Convergence Finance is another innovative project. While it’s still in the early stage, it sets to be the first real-world asset automated market maker by turning assets into fractionalized nonfungible tokens and making them tradeable with DeFi’s liquidity. Liquefy Labs is set to announce another incubation project in the near future.
Adrian Lai, CEO and co-founder of Liquefy, said:
“Liquefy has long been a strong believer in tokenization. While we still see that asset tokenization is the future, there are constraints and limitations in the traditional STO model. However, with the maturation of decentralized finance, we can now break those restraints with the right DeFi protocols and applications. That’s why we introduced Liquefy Labs to help blockchain architects who share our vision of building an ecosystem that can democratize all assets. We encourage project owners to apply for our incubation program and start building and grow together.”
Kevin Tai, CEO at Linear Finance, added:
“Attaining success on a cryptocurrency project is determined by many factors — innovation, team strength, hard work, perseverance and a whole lot of luck. But, luck always favors the prepared. Being a project under Liquefy Labs not only provided us with the tech resources and strategic guidance but the ‘intangibles,’ which prepared us to quickly capitalize on opportunities that arose through Linear’s journey. This separates Liquefy Labs from other incubators, and we are blessed to have them on our side.”
DeFi programmers who have projects on hand are welcomed to apply for the Liquefy Labs incubation program. For details, please visit: www.liquefy.com/labs.
