Ethereum began as a bold experiment. Can we build a universal platform for digital money and assets, un-censorable applications, and decentralized organizations?

We started with a slightly smaller experiment: was it possible to launch a blockchain that could execute arbitrary programs? Over time, the Ethereum community began new experiments. Would developers find it interesting? What applications are actually useful? The community learned from its successes and failures, and iterated on their work. New people joined the community and started running their own experiments.

In 2018, the Ethereum community ran more experiments…

Tl;dr

The core idea of Cofound.it was to create an decentralized accelerator ecosystem built around inclusion, democratisation and transparency. Instead, the larger blockchain ecosystem developed and transformed into a speculation driven sub-economy.

Instead of waiting for the blockchain space to turn around, we have decided to opt for creative destruction, wind Cofound.it down and distribute the all assets to the token holders.

For you as a CFI token holder, more information will be released in a separate blog post within a few minutes.

How it started and the ICO period

Two years ago we started what would become Cofound.it with a strong belief that the global economy, enabled…


Today we are announcing our future plans for Cofound.it, in response to changing markets and the growth of our operations.

Over the past 12 months, we have been working hard towards achieving our vision of enabling startups to build viable, impactful businesses in a borderless economy. So what have we achieved so far? We have helped over 500 projects, coached entrepreneurs and worked with governments across Europe to understand the implications of proposed regulations in this ever-shifting landscape. …


Cofound.it is rapidly expanding, in terms of internal resources, external partnerships and community driven efforts. We’re now leveraging our experience and tech base to start developing the CFI protocol for startup creation and funding process — a trustless, distributed, value-added protocol making full use of the CFI token.

TL;DR video

Cofound.it’s goal has always been to bring the benefits of a vibrant local startup ecosystem to the whole world. Access to capital and experienced entrepreneurs, professionals and service providers help the startups overcome the constant challenges on their road to success. …


Taking care of any significant amount of crypto assets is not for the faint of heart. There are no banks, no intermediaries and no security except the one you create yourself.

IMPORTANT: NEVER EVER SHARE, REUSE OR TAKE PICTURE OF PRIVATE KEYS YOU WILL USE. THE PRIVATE KEY USED HERE IS JUST AN EXAMPLE; AND ANYONE READING THIS BLOG POST HAS FULL ACCESS TO ALL ASSETS IN IT.

There are many different ways to store the private keys of a crypto account. …


Institutional investors are eager to dip their toes into the lucrative pond of cryptocurrencies, but regulation is still keeping them at bay. Venture capital firms, on the other hand, are kicking down the door.

Linz, Austria

Europe is serious about establishing itself as a blockchain leader, new ventures are sprouting left and right, and so are accompanying events.The Rise of ICO” was one of them and it was held in Linz, Austria on October 2nd and 3rd. It was organised by Startup300, a business angel network that has grown into a startup incubator. I was invited as a speaker to offer…


The pace of things in the crypto world truly is a bit crazy. The only way to keep up and stay relevant is to be there in person and be an active part of the community. That’s why we’re bringing you the first in our series of travel blogs.

Cofound.it and Deloitte evaluation best practices

The first step in adding structure and security to the crowdsale space is a transparent evaluation process built on best practices. This process must combine an understanding of the rapidly evolving blockchain space with tried and tested evaluation methodology. The Cofound.it evaluation process is built around a systematic approach to select the projects that are ready for a crowdsale, then to find key barriers and discover where Cofound.it can add value and catalyse the launch of the project. …


Please read Cofound.it’s announcement blog post for an introduction to the project

Crypto crowdfunding is a fantastic evolution of project financing. Projects are now directly connected to a worldwide pool of potential supporters and early adopters, with a much higher chance of finding supporters that understand the business prospect and wants to engage in the vertical the project operates in. However, only bringing in the capital and not the support of the VC model is severely limiting the chance of success for these projects.

In the months I’ve been evaluating crowdsale projects, both as a personal project and later professionally…
