There are many factors that attribute to hampering the growth of the cryptocurrency industry. Accountability, and policies are some of the factors. Chief among these is trust.
When investors confidence is low, and they do not trust a project or its team, it will be very difficult to attract investors, or raise funds these teams seek.
For investors, parting with ones funds isn’t easy, because once this is done, control of how the project is managed is out of the investors hands.
Having a way to reduce the risks attached to investments is paramount, and will ensure that investments on the blockchain increases exponentially.
Vertex has identified this problem, and wants to play its part in strengthening the crypto industry. Vertex is a post-ICO ecosystem that ensures investors can get in after conclusion, but still get the low prices they will have been offered, if they had gotten in earlier. Vertex ensures that investors only invest in projects that have been thoroughly scrutinized and vetted by private investors and its own team.
As a result of Vertex’s vision and mission, all stakeholders have alot to benefit. We will look at what Vertex will mean to some of these stakeholders.
BENEFIT OF VERTEX TO THE INDIVIDUAL (INVESTOR)
Individuals will have a central pool to search for opportunities that appeal to them. They will not only have access to such a pool, but verified ICO’s. This ensures that the risk of falling for programs that do not have an intent on executing or delivering on investment is greatly reduced. These ICO’s have been vetted by very experienced private investors and a Vertex team as well.
Vertex will also ensure that investors will get better return on investments, and will not need multiple tokens to buy in. One token, Vertex (VETX) tokens gives access to hundreds of other tokens. The need to also carry out multiple KYC’s is done away with. Once they have been approved by Vertex, they will not need to fill in any other forms.
WHAT VERTEX OFFERS TO THE CRYPTO INDUSTRY
The crypto industry is not in a very good place, and anything to improve its image is welcome. Cases of teams running away with funds raised, or development stalling is rampant in the industry. Many off-chain investors are still skeptical, and cases like these do not do any favours.
When these investors are convinced that money invested will not be lost, it will encourage them to invest, ensuring that much needed funds to continue the exponential growth of the blockchain/cryptocurrencies continues.
WHAT VERTEX OFFERS TO ICO’s

Vertex ensures that such projects already have investors waiting to buy in, seeing they have been vetted by Vertex.
