Shield Finance gets incubated by Master Ventures!

Shield Finance is an aggregation platform that provides traders and investors with DeFi insurance against black swan events such as hacks, rug pulls, exploits, scams and others.

Master Ventures mission is to find and promote innovative and disruptive products which will make the bright DeFi future real. Shield Finance is thrilled to announce that it is being incubated by Master Ventures FUEL. Wondering what’s going on? Let’s delve into the subject.

What is Shield Finance?

Shield Finance is a Multi-Chain DeFi insurance aggregator that allows users to buy protection against losses caused by major market crashes and black swan events. Why should it be useful?

The more popular DeFi becomes, the more risks its participants have to face. There are plenty of crypto-related projects that seem to be very profitable for investing. And there are also plenty of projects that will disappear to nowhere with your money on its founder balance, or that will simply get hacked or exploited. You never know, but you can’t resist the temptation to participate in the DeFi party. So that’s why, after some reflections on the problem, you’ll find out that buying insurance might be a great solution.

But then you run into another trouble: there are so many insurance providers, so how would you be able to choose wisely? What if you don’t find an insurance bargain simply because you are not aware of its existence? Well, it would be cool if DeFi insurance had something like Skyscanner for flights…


Congratulations, you’ve just discovered Shield Finance!

Shield Finance Token is called SHIELD.

Holding SHIELD will allow you to have governance privileges on the project such as the ability to submit & vote on the network proposals (protocol fees and others). Moreover, SHIELD allows staking, which provides 30% stable APY.

One of the most important features of the SHIELD token is the “buy & burn” program. Every quarter Shield redirects 50% of fees generated by users to buy the SHIELD token on the open market & burn it. The main point of this feature is in a permanent reduction of supply and, as a conclusion, higher demand on the token.

Master Ventures

First thing you should know about the company: its ethos is summarized in the acronym #BeBOLD: Benevolent, Open, Love, Decentralized.

Master Ventures was launched in 2018 by its founder and CEO Kyle Chassé. It is a blockchain-focused venture studio that aims to help to build the next generation of blockchain-based Web 3.0 system innovations within the crypto industry. To achieve that, Master Ventures collaborates with entrepreneurs and businesses all over the globe and searches for innovative and disruptive products. The company does this by investing as strategic partners through offering advisory services to the selected projects. By now Master Ventures has invested in more than 40 crypto projects, including Kraken, Coinbase, Bitfinex, Reef, DAO Maker, Mantra DAO, Thorchain, and Elrond.

The company has its own ecosystem including FUEL and PAID projects, to make prodigy startups promotion even more exciting. Let’s get acquainted with them.

PAID is a project established by the Master Ventures team to redefine the litigation, current business contract and settlement processes by providing a simple, attorney-free, and cost-friendly DApp for users and businesses. Two other platforms, Master Ventures FUEL & Ignition, are connected to it.

Ignition is a product of PAID Network. It operates as a decentralized swapping protocol, allowing token-projects to offer their private and public auctions.

Why does Ignition differ from other auction platforms?

The answer is simple: that’s all because of a thorough project selection process. Only top-tier, cutting-edge projects can be picked out for Ignition. Combined with strategically crafted promotion & inspiration mechanism for participants, that allows Ignition to support both project founders and the community. Being more than just a trading platform, Ignition really takes fundraising of the FUEL projects to the next level. What are FUEL projects? Here goes the explanation.

FUEL Incubation is a joint venture between Master Ventures and PAID. FUEL combines Master Ventures’ blockchain experience with PAID’s marketing resources and Ignition sales platform to provide powerful incubation opportunities for the selected projects.

FUEL promotes its wards by opening market access, building a project community, raising funds and building an investor and influencer network around it. Assistance in the construction of tokenonomic models is also possible.

In a nutshell, FUEL is a cosmodrome for a project’s launch to the moon.

Shield Finance is incubated, what’s next?

As you see, the Master Ventures ecosystem provides ultimate support for the projects it works with. For Shield Finance, the potential to launch on Ignition promises brand new opportunities in marketing activities and as a result, a new era in Shield Finance development.

Stay tuned for more details and have fun with DeFi!
