ZUG, MARCH 30, 2021 — The Occam.fi team and the Occam Association are pleased to announce the upcoming launch of OccamRazer, the first component of the Occam decentralized finance layer built specifically for the Cardano blockchain.
Occam.fi is designed to be the first all-in-one DeFi ecosystem built on Cardano. Designed and developed by a leading team of experts and blockchain veterans, Occam.fi and its core components have been created to address several adoption-critical needs of the Cardano blockchain ecosystem.
Occam.fi’s journey into Cardano’s DeFi landscape begins with OccamRazer, a decentralized launchpad designed to accelerate projects and startups building on Cardano. OccamRazer facilitates this through access to venture capital above and beyond that currently available through other funding routes, catalyzing Cardano’s dormant pools of on-chain liquidity.
Cardano is currently one of the world’s largest blockchain ecosystems, with vast amounts of untapped on-chain liquidity. Up until mid-2020, Cardano (ADA) token holders could not use their stake in the protocol for yield generating purposes, providing limited use for ADA as a store of value and limited utility. Now staking is available, with just over 16 billion ADA currently in circulation, while around 22.7 billion ADA are staked and locked in the protocol. There is, therefore, a huge opportunity to empower ADA holders to use their funds for the growth of the Cardano blockchain ecosystem while also generating significant on-chain yields.
To address this, OccamRazer liquidity pools will enable ADA holders to generate significant returns on their capital while also creating a self-sustaining and powerful launchpad platform for serious projects building on Cardano.
OccamRazer will arrive complete with a full suite of compliance and RegTech tools, designed to offer startups raising capital through Occam.fi a seamless route to building out a professional offering. For liquidity providers and ADA holders, OccamRazer combines a feature-rich user experience with traditionally loved DeFi elements to accommodate a vast variety of fundraising profiles, acting as a key to unlock the Cardano ecosystem’s liquidity.
Mark Berger, member of the Occam Association, says:
“Among the first expected users of OccamRazer are successful early-stage projects from Cardano’s decentralized community-led funding initiative, Project Catalyst. These projects, validated by the community, are uniquely positioned to grow into a ready and waiting Cardano ecosystem. Through OccamRazer, we provide the tools and access to venture capital required to accelerate their applications to new heights.”
To support the Occam.fi ecosystem, the OCC token will also be launched. OCC tokens allow access to premium liquidity pools while also fueling continuous ecosystem diversification, a feature where OCC token stakers are continuously airdropped small quantities of tokens of the best projects closing their funding rounds on OccamRazer. This feature alone, unique to Occam.fi, will open a cascade of reward-generating opportunities for both token holders and ecosystem participants, ensuring Occam.fi becomes a thriving, self-sustaining and prosperous ecosystem.
