Some people have asked about the equity that is received in exchange for a quadency investment. I've learned that often Venture Capital is not that simple.
I understand this question, and will answer it below. However I would like to first say that I believe one of the main benefits of this proposal is the building out of a FastPass partner. This proposal helps round out the partnership and allows the Dash Network to support the FastPass network in a holistic way.
As is often the case it is very difficult to value private equity. As a result many investments utilize SAFE agreements. SAFE agreements are tied to a future funding round where a valuation is established. As an early investor takes more risk, the early investor gets the equity at a discount.
For the Quadency proposal, there is a SAFE agreement that the DIF is a party to if the proposal passes. This SAFE agreement would provide a 20% discount to a future valuation. 20% is fairly standard.
Also, by supporting Quadency with this proposal, the Dash Network is provided $20,000 of advertising building out the FastPass Network and branding. So the math is:
$100,000 goes in
equity and advertising comes out.
If Quadency has a second successful round then the equity would be worth $125,000 at the new valuation, and the network would have also received the $20,000 of advertising.
With best wishes,
