With @tomscaria3 min read

We’re thrilled to launch our Public Beta and unveil our $3M seed round, led by North Island Ventures with participation from Polychain Capital, and many more.

This marks our next chapter in building a digital investing economy enabled by web3.

Prysm helps you find and follow the best investors to guide you through web3 investment opportunities. Set up your profile — we have exciting surprises for early users.

We started Prysm with one core belief: fair and equal wealth creation should be a right.

Today, millions of retail investors are finding an edge by sharing ideas and investing together. However, the digital spaces where we share investing ideas, such as Twitter and Discord, are noisy. It’s hard to tell apart the real investors from the larps and shills.

On Prysm, you can find credible investors, see what they’re investing in, and follow them for alpha. You can also showcase your investments and share them with friends.

Find Credible Investors: The world of web3 investing moves fast. You rely on experts to curate new investment opportunities but it’s hard to find ones you vibe with. Prysm helps you find expert investors through customizable leaderboards. Filter and sort by interests, holdings, performance, etc.

Find Investors

Don’t Trust, Verify: It's hard to know if “experts” are making real money or just larping on Twitter. Prysm helps you cut through the noise with user-friendly, transparent investing Profiles. Profiles are backed by on-chain track records allowing you to verify the track records of “experts”.

Verify Trackrecord

Follow for Alpha: Activity Feed shows you what investors are actually doing, not just saying on Twitter. Create a real-time investing Activity Feed by following Profiles.

Prysm will enable a new era of social investment models.

The Ethereum toolkit is transforming the social investing movement into a digital investing economy that outcompetes traditional investment advisory models. At the heart of this community-driven movement are Creators and Expert Investors that guide retail investors through markets. Prysm will give them the tools to build a reputation, share their expertise and monetize. We utilize community tokens, NFTs, and DAOs to enable collaborative investment models that allow creators, fans, experts, and amateur investors to invest together. A retail investing paradigm shift is underway and we’re catalyzing it.

New round of funding to build a core community of investors 

We’re also unveiling our $3MM seed round, led by North Island Ventures with participation from Polychain Capital, Reciprocal Ventures, Leminscap, CMT Digital, Free Company, Alameda Ventures, Infinite Capital, Flow Ventures, Drops Foundation, and angels including Zane Tackett, Tony Sheng, Imran Khan, Qiao Wang, Clay Robbins, Regan Bozman, Sergei Chan, Don Ho, and Marc Weinstein. 

This capital will enable us to take the next step in our mission of creating a fairer investing ecosystem for retail investors. We’re using the funds to assemble a core team, launch our public beta, and grow a powerful community of experts and investors.
