Magnet DAO and the Investathon

If you haven’t heard, Magnet DAO is a crypto incubator that uses its treasury to cultivate, incubate, and invest in early-stage crypto projects. They’ve recently announced a new initiative, an Investathon, that aims to model their investment research using the highly successful hackathon model.

We’ll give you a rundown on Magnet DAO and an introduction to their new Investathon initiative.

They raised an impressive amount with their community offering of $1.6m sold out in 32 minutes and public sale of $10m sold out in 39 minutes!

What is Magnet DAO

Investing with Magnet DAO is essentially a way to gain access to early investments in high potential projects that will be guided by the DAO itself.

They are building network effects, as they develop and incubate new protocols, the token holder community will play a significant role in helping these projects gain recognition, traction and usage. On top of this, the DAO will aim to work on projects that are highly synergistic. They work to ensure their MAG token plays a significant role in allowing holders to participate in the growth of upcoming projects as well, further increasing value.

Their Upcoming Investathon Creates Growth Opportunities

Hackathons are incredibly successful at showcasing developer talents and projects across crypto. This model has proven successful.

Magnet DAO is introducing a new spin on the hackathon with Investing. Teams will compete to find and pitch investment into new projects across crypto.
