Kassandra Foundation & Team
It’s time to know the passionate minds behind Kassandra
Kassandra is an audacious project to delegate money management in a decentralized, efficient, and customizable way.
For managers, Kassandra is a plug-and-earn solution to port complex money management strategies to decentralized ecosystems, saving time and costs when compared to the traditional market, helping managers to raise funds without the need for complex infrastructure.
For investors, Kassandra democratizes access to robust data models and quantitative analysts leveraging portfolio optimization and potential gains.
This is not only a great technology challenge but also a substantial business development task, and that’s the reason to build a well-funded and strong foundation and a team of believers and builders to push Kassandra into reality.
The Kassandra Foundation is the entity funded by the token sales events. The purpose of the foundation is to promote and develop Kassandra in both technological and marketing aspects, via grants and capital deployment in solid activities that can leverage the success of Kassandra.
As token holders, we view Kassandra as a long-term project, we believe that the Indexes and ETF markets will keep growing at a fast pace — investment baskets will play a major role in investing, especially in DeFi. Thus, building a technical and management foundation is key to be one of the key participants in the DeFi ecosystem.
Although we plan to actively help Kassandra grow and have the means to be successful, the Kassandra Foundation is not Kassandra. We do not plan to operate or manage Kassandra, this only can be done by the DAO and its token holders. The foundation’s main role is to deploy the needed resources that are under our control to support Kassandra’s long-term success, helping it achieve its goal of helping Kassandra be successful in the long term. This long-term success can only be attained with a participative and energetic community, thus Kassandra will be able to achieve its goal of providing well-balanced portfolios in the form of Indexes.
We’re regular Joes, Kassandra could have been an anonymous project, but we decided to go 100% transparent on who we are. We do not hold fancy resumes with experience on the biggest technology companies, nor Ivy league schools PhD.
We’re a fast-paced team of young and passionate builders seeking to change the world and make our names.
And we’re open to onboarding the community! If you fit our values, please drop by our social channels and lets build together. We believe more in results and passion than in resumes.
Nonetheless, we’re ready to rock. Even without prestige medals, our team has a strong background in finance, mathematics, data science, UI/UX, and we’re ready to be ahead of the development of new investment products and strategies in the DeFi ecosystem.
