Nano is set to launch as a platform to showcase and promote blockchain projects with real value.

It is estimated that in 2021, blockchain/crypto investors lost billions. One estimate puts the losses incurred as a result of scams at $21 billion.

  • Scammers around the world took home a record $14 billion in cryptocurrency in 2021, thanks in large part to the rise of DeFi.

  • Losses from crypto-related crime rose 79% from 2020.

  • Cryptocurrency theft increased 516% from 2020, to $3.2 billion worth of cryptocurrency. Of this total, 72% of stolen funds were taken from DeFi protocols.

These figures do not take into account the resources lost as a result of investment in projects that were created only to entice speculation and speculators.

I am of the mindset that it is possible for projects to launch with no initial value and somehow find real-world utility along the way.

I say this while thinking about projects like Shiba Inu (SHIB), and to some extent, Dogecoin (DOGE). I get that. I would also say, however, that for every SHIB, there are thousands of others that turned out to be duds simply because they were designed that way.

Today, more so than ever, investors - seeing losses mount in the crypt space and in the equities markets - are starting to realize the upsides of allocating disproportionately-higher sections of their crypto portfolios to projects that launch with goals to provide real value, solve some kind of real-life problem for everyday people.

The crypto world, in my humble opinion, is made up mostly of a bunch of tech-savvy dudes (98% male-driven) building tools and platforms that only they, and others like them can appreciate. I mean, how many gaming platforms do we need? How many NFT marketplaces can the sector handle?

Lately, I have been on the lookout for blockchain products that aim to solve real-world issues.

I have quickly found that there are very few spaces that provide the average crypto investor with a collection of projects that are built by competent teams, with ample funding and an idea and/or tool that serves some real purpose.

For this reason and many others, we went to work to build Nano, Ecole foundation's first platform.

What is Nano?

The name Nano is a derivative of the word Nanotechnology, defined as "the manipulation of matter on a near-atomic scale to produce new structures, materials, and devices."

A simple directory built around our mission to find and showcase small, startup blockchain projects with real value and real-world application. The kind of projects that are on the way to creating something valuable.

This is still a work in progress.

Today, we completed the most basic functions of the app and have a few steps left till launch. We plan to launch the app this coming week to allow our community members a chance to check it out and provide feedback.

Our next step after we launch the app will be to invest heavily in marketing to get the word out about our new platform while we populate the app with tools from many of our friends in the crypto world we know are building great products.

As a community, I think we should all be able to contribute to the success of the application.

Please feel free to use the comment section of this post to recommend any blockchain products that you think should be included in our growing list of projects.

We will reach out to the teams behind recommended projects to get more information about what they are building.

I also ask that you guys take a look at the various logos below and let us know which you think should be chosen as our app logo.

Simply use the comment area to share your thoughts.

Got old dead tokens?

Why not donate them to a good cause?
