With the reach of the internet, it’s possible to start a business with limited resources, many of the top internet companies started out this way, that same reach has also provided opportunities to find these ventures and support them from their onset and watch them grow.
Use case 2 : Investing in Open Protocols
Technology protocols are moving from being standardized by private organizations to being defined and standardized using community consensus, eg. Blockchain, is the latest open protocol disrupting how we maintain public ledgers and is a key innovation in implementing digital signatures, the “defi” movement is creating an ecosystem for “open finance”, we are also moving towards "open governance" with distributed ledger technology (DLT) and their ability to form Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAO).
Use case 3 : Finding Niche Markets
A niche market is a segment of a larger market which has its own identifying characteristics, eg. India has a huge small-business population, whose first step towards going digital was via ecommerce marketplaces and social media, as the consumer internet population grows, online identity is becoming critical to thrive in the digital space, hence, every business owner will look to create a website and every website resides on a domain name. Since the 1990s, domain names have been dubbed “internet real estate” for their ability to be unique and graded by keyword and quality metrics, due to these characteristics, a good domain name is a scarce asset, investing in “.in” domains is a niche market opportunity.
