Additional notes on the fund raising activity

At Autarky Finance my goal is to make this into an on-going entity with its own revenues to self sustain this as reasonably possible. Given that right now the focus is to do an upto $5M raise on SAFE terms at a $50M pre-money valuation with the flexibility to close the found with lesser than $5M, if possible. In this mode the business will have its own ways to have investors a vehicle to invest in a entity that concentrates on growing the value of the each investor at subsequent rounds with the shorter time frame between raises.

Terms: Up to 5.00 M raise at 50.00 M pre-money valuation with a maximum post-money valuation of $ 55.00 M in this round.

Found some inefficiencies in the Smart contract on transaction cost that is higher than expected via some simulations on ETH testnet. Working on reducing the transaction cost by optimizing direction blockchain calls.

Also, building the middle-ware translation layer than will help scale out multi-chain access.

In this process found out how bad most of the testnet access solutions are from Moralis and Alchemy. Sounds like an opportunity to explore the RPC gateway models for cross chain applications

Accelerating the fund raising activity as doing full-time building and chasing funding is getting harder by the day. Smart devs are expensive all over the world hence larger fund raise is becoming more important now than was planned, hence chasing the investors globally for a diverse investor pool from different geographies.

Please utilize Harmony’s Talent Network. Will reach out with details
