Alexander Borodich, the founder of the company Universa Blockchain Platform, has invited applications to the first decentralised blockchain accelerator, urockets.com. The accelerator will be set up and run by the YellowRockets team.
The accelerator is open to startups that use the blockchain technology in their projects and to industry experts. The former will receive investments and expert advice, and the latter real-life challenges from the market and access to Universa Blockchain Platform for tackling them.
Blockchain being on trend, investors and customers show an interest in solutions based on this technology. The popularity of blockchain notwithstanding, startups are still likely to make common missteps. Acceleration will enable projects to develop faster and improve their market appeal.
