This week we unveiled our newest client Uptrennd! Uptrennd is a disruptive social media project aiming to give the power back to users. With a 20/80 advertising revenue share with the users, as well as a singular focus on data security and freedom of speech, Uptrennd is primed to fill the void left by the current slate of social media platforms.
CEO of Uptrennd Jeff Kirdeikis commented on the announcement by saying “We believe social media should present an opportunity for people to become empowered, not exploited. We value freedom of speech, the security of data, and paying users for the time and energy they put in. We believe everyone should be able to thrive by doing what they love. Every decision we make is in the service of our members. We’re honoured to have received such an immensely positive response towards our vision of a better online world.”
At GDA, we are always trying to work with market disruptors; our goal is to identify projects that are pushing blockchain forward in the right way, and giving them the tools they need to succeed.
Uptrennd has grown 60% month over month this year with 11,000 new users onboarded in March, 18,000 new users who joined in April, and 29,000 in May. If this momentum continues, Uptrennd will reach a user base of 2.2 million by the end of 2020. When we looked at these growth metrics, coupled with their ambitious goal of giving power and authority back to social media users, we instantly knew Uptrennd was a project that GDA wanted to help grow.
We have published a research summary highlighting some key facts that went into our decision to bring on Uptrennd as our latest institutional client. If you’d like to learn more about how Uptrennd and GDA will be working alongside each other, read the full article here!
Since the beginning of 2020, GDA has been working with the blockchain-focused investment fund Alpha Sigma Capital (ASC) as institutional capital partners. With great excitement, we can finally share some of their brilliant research with the GDA community. With an investment thesis focused around uncovering undervalued digital assets, ASC tries to uncover value in the Altcoin sector. Together, ASC and GDA are working to research, identify and capitalize well-deserving crypto and Altcoin projects that can push the industry forward.
