January 25, 2024 – Lisbon, Portugal
Common Wealth unveiled the ‘All Street Oracles,’ a group of 10 seasoned professionals with decades of experience in blockchain, crypto and technology investments, who will play a pivotal role in identifying and referring early-stage investment opportunities to the Common Wealth platform.
This initiative is a significant leap from the conventional model, making these opportunities that were once reserved solely for venture capitalists accessible to regular crypto users.
Common Wealth’s innovative platform, grounded in Web 3.0 technology, seeks to revolutionize the traditional venture capital model.
By widening the circle of investment to include retail investors, it aims to utilize the collective insight and wisdom of a diverse audience, thereby establishing superior standards in investment and education.
A hallmark of this approach is the protocol’s commitment to rigorous due diligence, enhancing the trustworthiness, reliability and security of projects.
The All Street Oracles are not involved in governance or decision-making for Common Wealth.
Instead, their role is to voluntarily share potential early-stage investment opportunities with the platform, following their personal investment standards and decisions.
These industry heavyweights, hailing from esteemed venture capital institutions or renowned angel investors, align with the mission to open up early-stage Web 3.0 investments to retail investors.
By referring these opportunities to Common Wealth, they aim to build a passionate and engaged community for these projects from the outset.
