GigaStar, a company on a mission to fuel human creativity by helping creators and fans to flourish as partners in shared success, announced today the completion of a $4.8M Seed funding round, which included the conversion of a SAFE funding round raised in 2022. DV Crypto VC, Tomsic Holdings, Nameless Ventures, and Belvedere Strategic Capital are among the investors in this round.
By leveraging blockchain technology, GigaStar provides creators with streamlined access to fan funding, innovative fan engagement, and potential long-term royalties; YouTube creators can monetize their future capital by offering fans rights to a percentage of their channel’s potential future revenue, represented by Channel Revenue Tokens (CRTs).
Fans can invest in a creator’s journey via revenue-sharing securities through GigaStar Market’s Regulation Crowdfunding offerings to partner in their success and unlock advantages. On the creator’s respective offering page, investors can study the conditions, features, and risks of loss.
