Copper is a platform for open, transparent, and user-friendly token Fair Launch Auctions, powered by Balancer Liquidity Bootstrapping Pools. The most open, transparent, and user-friendly way to participate in a Fair Launch Auction (FLA). An FLA is a simple crowdfunding mechanism that enables projects and ideas from across the world to raise money from individuals without barriers to entry. No more middlemen, capital gatekeepers, or geographical constraints. No KYC or any sort of privileging of larger investors over smaller ones. Capital can now flow freely and directly toward empowering the ideas that deserve it, while enabling investors of all sizes and backgrounds to fairly participate in capitalizing on these early stage opportunities. Any idea can now be bootstrapped by an invested community and thus established as a transparent and equitable partnership. This is the future of new venture funding and Copper is here to make this vision a reality by unlocking the world’s “value reserves” to be “mined” by anyone — fairly, transparently and equitably.
