Private companies

Public companies all start somewhere, and you can get better and more favorable terms when you enter a company at an early stage. Getting into a private company early before it goes public can be much more profitable in the long run however, it is considered very risky as many startups fail within a few years.

These days, anyone can get into private companies through crowdfunding, A+ regulation, and other means of funding. In the past, to participate in these types of pre-IPO deals, you had to be an accredited investor, venture capitalist, angel investor, investment banker, etc. Now it’s more open to the public.

Many private companies grow silently under the radar because they are not required to publish their financial statements publicly. Coinbase started out as a private company, and as the app grew, it went public in 2021. There are a lot of new names making noise in the industry OpenSea, Rare, Binance, Bitplazaand bitpayJust to name a few.

Over the past year, NFTs and the Metaverse have generated a lot of interest. The crypto landscape is changing faster than most of us can keep up. This is what really makes cryptocurrency so exciting to watch, digest, and explore.
