A Collaborative Blockchain Incubator

Most blockchain initiatives had a singular goal: to introduce a new blockchain platform (Ethereum, July 2015; Lisk, May 2016; Waves, January 2017). More recently, projects began to appear to focus on launching a more FinTech-focused service linking blockchain to gold such as Digix Global[1], or Ether ETF, the first-ever Ethereum-related Exchange Traded Product (ETP) in the United States[2].

With so much innovation in blockchain, is there a market to consolidate ideas into a single platform?

  • What about an ecosystem that encourages diversity across many industries with a vision of collaborative success?
  • Similar to the crowdfunding success of Kickstarter, a startup incubator that will legalize projects and help them be successful.
  • A single platform that unifies people from various industries, disciplines and regional backgrounds to accelerate idea development and implement real-world projects.
  • A community that enables innovation and equity ownership in projects.

The incubator model[3] has proven itself effective because people bootstrap ideas into viable projects without requiring exorbitant amounts of seed capital. Combining startup incubation with collaborative workspaces[4] is a rapidly growing phenomenon. These environments provide local space for startups to form and allow users to share resources and expertise to cross-pollinate ideas. They leverage business services like human resources and effectively manage funds.

Economies of Scale Through Collaboration

These new approaches to startup incubation demonstrate the need for efficiency, cost savings, and community in order to give ideas momentum. Efficiency is created by using investment funding in an ecosystem where multiple industries work together. Sometimes the best ideas come from disparate disciplines joining together to create something new which could not have been realized in isolation. The relationship between medicine and engineering has proven this synergy for several decades[1].


Figure #1: Adel Community Modules

Merging real-world incubator initiatives with virtual collaborative workspaces is the vision of Adel Ecosystem Ltd. Adel’s global incubator will include six online modules (Figure #1) with the intention of fostering collaboration.

  • A collaboration module will be a discussion forum to fuel ideas, as well as develop business plans for ideas that the community supports.
  • A voting module will enable a democratic vote by members.
  • A project module will show a bi-weekly status of project operations and success metrics.
  • A market module will be used to sell products and services from those projects, as well as post job vacancies in the various projects. Addition modules will be introduced, including one for currency trading.
  • Wrapping up the modules are the account and trading modules which show the status of the member’s wallet and allow them to send and receive coins with other members of the community.

Adel co-founder, Gabriel Dusil, is up for the complex challenges ahead, commenting, “Our decentralized and virtual incubator has its challenges, but we will manage that. As leaders and curators, it will be our responsibility to make sure that efficiency is maintained and momentum is sustained. When we see that there is a constructive effort to move ideas forward then we have the responsibility to make sure that the process continues to flow. That is one of our main responsibilities as curators of the community”.

From Blockchain Innovation to Ownership

Blockchain is arguably the most transformative technology since the invention of the Internet. Initially, the cryptocurrency use case with Bitcoin was fuelled by talented developers who were passionate about its stateless ideology. In the Blockchain Adoption Curve (Figure #1), these innovators represented talented technical minds who believed that blockchain could revolutionize the financial world with Bitcoin as its first use case. Although it took some time to gain momentum, this application established confidence that a currency born from code could be viable, powerful and profitable. It took several years for a new group of early adopters to realize its potential beyond a monetary system.Figure #1: Blockchain Adoption Curve

Since the introduction of Satoshi Nakamoto’s white paper in 2008, several other blockchain platforms attempted to establish themselves. However, some of these shut down due to devastating hacking attacks such as the one on the DAO[1], scams such as Coin.mx[2], or due to legal reasons[3]. Meanwhile, governments continue to play catch-up by implementing new regulations to address the growing popularity of cryptocurrencies and mitigating the security risks of anonymity.

By 2013, a wider audience from many industries began to take notice. These new supporters began to investigate how blockchain could improve society, science, medicine, government, and many others.

Despite all this attention, a powerful blockchain startup incubator had yet to be established to help drive innovation in this industry. Even with over 10,000 projects on GitHub[4], blockchain innovation needed a structured environment – not for development, but for all other aspects of launching a successful business.

A Brand that Fuels Innovation

Adel launched in December 2016 to offer such a platform; a home where innovators, investors, and experts can actively participate in a community environment to build viable blockchain solutions. Adel recognized that to build such an ecosystem, necessary legal steps had to be taken to secure their platform. This includes launching a Know Your Customer (KYC), Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter-Terrorism Financing (CTF) compliant ICO which began on May 1st, 2017 and continues until May 31st. Their crowdfunding initiative is to sell their Adelphoi (ADL) coin as a cryptocurrency to transact within an exclusive community of like-minded participants.

Some may argue their vision is in opposition to blockchain liberalists who value anonymity, complete freedom, and a stateless society. But Adel believes that a platform that follows regulatory compliance is necessary to legitimize blockchain and move this technology into the mainstream. Adel is poised to create a powerful blockchain ecosystem by establishing six main pillars:

  • A Philosophy for Blockchain Integrity ▲ This is a commitment to their community to uphold the ethical, moral and legal requirements of every member and project in the ecosystem.
  • A Collaborative Blockchain Incubator ▲ Their intention is to serve as the curators of the community. Their goal is to maximize participation and capitalize on the expertise of its members while providing the freedom and liquidity to exit at any time.
  • Blockchain Diversity and Passion ▲ This ensures that the democratic voting process and project approvals have the depth and range of cultural, political, regional, and economic perspectives.
  • Blockchain Startup Expertise ▲ This is essential to creating business plans that turn ideas into projects and projects into sustainable and successful businesses.
  • Blockchain Portfolio Diversification ▲ The intention is to build a diverse portfolio that spans a variety of industries, creating investments sustained in a strong risk management strategy. Projects that cross several vertical markets ensure stability and sustainability.
  • Blockchain Incubation to Employment ▲ This is Adel’s unsung asset to their powerful ecosystem. Members play an active role in developing projects until they are executed. A member’s role can continue as an expert advisor or employee within the project management team and by demonstrating skills that the project requires.

Adel co-founder and General Manager, Gabriel Dusil, stated, “No technology since the Internet has garnered so much attention. Blockchain is viewed with high potential in helping society to streamline processes, but it’s not a silver bullet, and some proof of concepts will not survive. The proof of concepts that emerge will change computing forever. We want Adel to be a central resource to accelerate ideas to projects. We want to be the leading global brand for blockchain incubation.”

Blockchain Diversity & Passion

A strong blockchain should look beyond finance and computing to reach the mainstream. To get there, the platform needs a diverse talent pool that is passionate about ideas. A decentralized collaboration tool has its challenges, but one aspect is certain: individuals from all walks of life can participate in the development and implementation of blockchain technologies in industries where they have the desire and experience.

A diverse community allows members to interact with a variety of ideas and combine them into something greater than the sum of its parts. Individually, those ideas may not be viable but combined they may turn into a competitive value proposition. Projects developed in isolation don’t have such a luxury. An idea may originate from diametrically opposed industries, with conflicting cultural dynamics, corporate bureaucracy, and political agendas. Bringing people together from completely different disciplines can result in new approaches to solving problems and help to overcome obstacles that would not have been tackled otherwise. Furthermore, a decentralized community flattens the traditional corporate structure. For example, a brick and mortar environment has several layers of hierarchy – “a chain of command” as they say in the military. Many managers would not interface with levels of management much lower than themselves due to the ego, power, or personal agenda. In a decentralized community, everyone is essentially treated equally.

A decentralized platform that incubates ideas also has the benefit of streamlining people, processes, and technology. A 10,000-meter view of ideas, business plans, and projects allow for efficiencies that is unprecedented in normal startup initiatives. Those responsible for the idea funnel can combine features from a different idea to make it a better idea. The business team can streamline their process from months to weeks. Likewise, project teams can collaborate on best practices, operational efficiencies, and market intelligence. The ecosystem strengthens as the project portfolio grows and diversifies.

The Internet may have removed international borders of communication, but for startup incubation, these barriers still exist. Those in the crypto community are still in relative isolation to the rest of the world in terms of business collaboration. Bringing people together, with a common purpose and investment interests, is a good formula for sustainability and profitability.

 

Figure #1: Success from Diversity

Diversity comes from regional, cultural, vertical, horizontal, and occupational backgrounds (Figure #1). Adel co-founder, Gabriel Dusil says: “We want a diverse community to maintain a spectrum of talent that loves to create and complete projects. The ecosystem benefits when we have hundreds of members representing a diverse talent pool. We realize that not all will actively participate. As with most forums, you have those that observe and those that participate. Our goal is to build a sizable membership pool and incentivize participation. Adel is about bringing the best practices of investment strategies and venture capital expertise to the crypto community.”
