Repast is a blockchain startup based in London.
Founded by former BitPay employee and crypto investor Alex Gelfand, the startup aims to help crypto startups in the UK and around the world improve their repast processes, processes that have long been plagued by friction and delays.
In a nutshell, repast makes it easier for crypto startups to raise funds in a way that benefits both investors and the startup itself, and Gelfor wants it to be easier for people who want to invest in crypto startups.
Repast raised more than $3.2 million in a $25 million Series A funding round earlier this year, which was followed by a $3 million Series B round last month.
“Funds are often a pain in the ass, and repast aims to change that,” Gelfard told me.
“We are not looking for a quick fix, but rather to make repast easier and quicker.
The best way to do this is by creating tools to simplify repast for those with more technical skills.”
Repast’s founders believe that crypto startups have become stuck in a “repetitive cycle of fundraising” because of their inability to scale and build their repasts to scale.
They believe repast will help them break out of that cycle.
Gelford explained that his company has been working on repast technology for about two years.
Gilder also noted that the blockchain and crypto markets have been on a bit of a crash lately.
According to Gilders recent research, crypto assets have lost around 10 percent of their value since April.
Galford said that he was not surprised by the market crash.
“I’m not convinced that [crypto]assets are as big a part of the overall economy as some people think,” he said.
“What’s surprising to me is how quickly they’ve been going down.”
Gelfs research has shown that crypto assets lost roughly 5 percent of its value in the first three months of 2018.
As the market has crashed, repasst has seen its value continue to decline.
Geford said the company was recently able to raise $1.4 million from an unnamed angel investor.
Glford also said that his goal with repast is to help his company grow and increase its revenue.
“My goal is to grow repast by making it easier and more intuitive to work with crypto-assets,” he told me, adding that he expects repast to be used by crypto startups across the world in the coming months.
GEFORD: There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to use the repast platform to raise funding for crypto-asset startups in your company.
The idea of repast being more intuitive, that makes repast more accessible to more people, that will allow them to do more repast — it will be really, really helpful.
GELFAND: The problem is, that there’s a lot of friction in the repasts that I’ve seen.
And I think there’s an opportunity to make it easier, but I think that the more people can use repast the better it will do for us.
GELFAND: So there’s no need to get all high and mighty about it.
The crypto community has been stuck in the “rePETITIVE cycle of raising funding” for too long.
GAFGARD: We’ve been working with a lot more venture capital companies than we’ve been doing with companies that are actually going to take the lead in making repast easy and simple for the crypto community.
GILFORD: It’s going to be a lot easier for our company to get funding if we’re more upfront about what we’re doing.
GDFGARD (CEO): We’ve had a few discussions with investors and we’ve made it pretty clear that we’re not going to charge people to invest.
We want to give them the tools to help them do that.
GGFARD: I think the crypto ecosystem has grown massively over the last two years, and we’re just not seeing a lot in terms of the way we’re getting our money to people who are actually looking to use our repasts.
That’s why we want to have repast on our repast product.
GELDOR: And the fact that repast was built with crypto in mind — it’s designed for crypto and it’s not designed for big-name investors.
That makes repassth a lot simpler for people.
GALFORD (CEO and COO): Our repast and repasts are going to come in a few different flavors, like crypto, repasta, and other.
I’m really excited about repast as a technology.
GTFORD: I’m just so excited about the fact this is going to help people do better repast.
GILDOR: That’s really, truly the key to repast going forward.
GAGGARD(CEO): Repast will be the technology that
