Deepwaters X Avalaunch: IDO Announcement
The broken trust and absence of promise that has marred the crypto landscape over the last year has largely been the work of CeFi i.e. centralized financial institutions, private equity firms and insider-controlled projects. Unfortunately, these headline grabbing stories have come replete with scandal and corruption worthy of the soapiest of dramas; effectively conflating CeFi and DeFi to the non-native crypto population. Violations of custody have cost traders tens of billions of dollars and 2022 saw traders face immense losses from Voyager, Celsius, FTX, and others. While unscrupulous and predatory behavior is nothing new to the regulated world, the collateral damage to DeFi has been significant. Despite the seeming steps backwards, these recent mishaps fortify the case for an emergent decentralized financial system. Among the chief tenets of decentralized finance are the principles of fairness and inclusion which includes access to tradfi level trading experiences to go with inclusion and self-custody.
