Technology is a powerful force for good. It enables us to solve hard problems, improve society and achieve more with less. It provides us with the tools to reimagine our world.

Engines. Electricity. Internet. And now, blockchain.

Permissionless innovation and rapid open-source iteration

For the first time ever, ideas originating anywhere in the world can get support from anyone through blockchain technology. Hardcore teams can build permissionless and open source products via decentralized funding.

This is how Elrond was built. And we believe this is how the next amazons and googles will be built, one smart contract at a time.

Ideas, products, distribution

Brilliant insights and clearly laid-out visions will secure most teams their funding. But the path from idea to product can not stop there.

Even the most hardcore teams struggle with hard problems: it is not technical or product problems that kill most startups, but rather distribution. Finding the right communication channels. Building a diehard community. Tapping into sustainable ecosystems.

This is why we are thrilled to introduce the Maiar Launchpad.

Introducing the Maiar Launchpad: Where powerful teams, technologies, and products are forged

The Maiar Launchpad will be the ultimate catalyst for new technologies and unique products built with Elrond tech.

Projects debuting on the Maiar Launchpad will tap into decentralized funding from the platform and will be introduced to our global and passionate community, partners, and investors, along with the broader Elrond ecosystem.

To complement that, every month we will focus our creative energy on the most impactful projects. Offering direct support, feedback, and challenging them to take things to the next level.

During the past years, we have learned a thing or two about building strong teams, solving hard problems, developing complex technology, shipping products, ensuring distribution, and nurturing a passionate and resourceful community.

We are happy to share these lessons with strategic teams who use the Elrond technology to build compelling products with global reach and impact.

Tokenizing Widespread and Fair Access - The MPAD Token

The Maiar Launchpad is the ultimate catalyst for blockchain adoption, adding a second significant growth engine for the Elrond ecosystem that will reinforce the fundamentals for the next Elrond supercycle.

To ensure that anyone, anywhere has fair and widespread access to important technologies and startups coming on Elrond, the Maiar Launchpad will be fueled by the MPAD token. The MPAD token will be the second Elrond ecosystem token, bringing some of the most ambitious blockchain projects in the world, to the Elrond ecosystem and community.

The Elrond community is hardcore and has fought alongside the Elrond team through all the obstacles we have overcome to reach this critical moment. It is this remarkable and growing community that will give the Maiar Launchpad its power.

Through a wide distribution model, all eGold holders will be able to claim a fair share of its supply.

The precise details of the MPAD token and distribution will be shared in the next 2 weeks, amplifying the outreach, exposure, and contribution to the Elrond economy.

The time to build is now

Elrond, the internet-scale blockchain is live. Developers are already building on it.

ESDTs, NFTs, SFTs, and the Maiar Exchange are ready.

The Maiar Launchpad will be a supercharged growth engine, opening a new adoption path for unique and powerful products looking to leverage the full scope of the Elrond technology and ecosystem.

The first startup is about to be announced during the next 2 weeks.
Startups from all over the world are encouraged to apply.

It’s time to build. And time to get more eGold ready.
More snapshots are coming.
