Here at Pop Up World we wanted to provide a way to reward and support entrepreneurs; The PopUpWorld token (PUW) was born!
The Problem – Why Pop Up World?
Pop Up World has an existing worldwide ecosystem of start-ups and small businesses that are looking for funding or are looking to expand. (www.popupworld.co.uk). At the time of writing (Q4 2021), there are over 13,000 start-ups on our list. It is estimated that each year 305 million start-ups come into existence (GettoGrowth).
The problem is, out of all start-ups launched, less than 1% ever receive external funding to realise their dreams. For ethnic minority founders, the figures are even lower, with less than 1%, of those 1% of founders finding success. We launched Pop Up World and (PUW) to address these important issues. Services like our Investor Connector aims to connect start-ups with VCs and Angel Investors but we need to do more.
The revolution in blockchain and cryptocurrency technology could be a game-changer for entrepreneurs looking to launch a start-up. Can you imagine a world where the barriers to entry were removed and any viable start-up could access information, services and funds to build their project? That world is ‘Pop Up World’. Our mission is to make that vision a reality!
The PopUpWorld token is built on the Cardano cryptocurrency blockchain. Pop Up World is a digital platform launched in 2020 that helps start-ups and small businesses “reach for the stars”. The platform intends to make the whole start-up process easier and more efficient both for newbie entrepreneurs and seasoned ones alike. The PopUpWorld Token (PUW) is given as a reward for activity on the platform. Users can swap their tokens in exchange for services or to help fund their start-up.
Why Build on Cardano?
Cardano is a cryptocurrency project that was launched in 2015 in a bid to redraft the process through which cryptocurrencies are produced and developed. The project was founded by ex-Ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson. The idea was to create a better, more conducive ecosystem in the cryptocurrency world.
Cardano offers a comprehensive roadmap, a collection of thorough design principles, engineering best practices and avenues for exploration that better accounts for the needs of its users. With governance and scalability at its core, plus lower gas fees for its users we decided that Cardano offered the best opportunity moving forward.
Of course, this does come with some risk. At the time of writing, Cardano offers no decentralised exchanges to allow users to trade native tokens. However, since the launch of smart contracts earlier this year (Sep 2021) we would expect that issue to be resolved soon. With Cardano currently resting as the third biggest cryptocurrency in the world aside from Bitcoin and Ethereum, we are confident the future is very bright on Cardano.
