Backed: Smart Investments for the Decentralized Future
- Building Smart Investments for the Decentralized Future by offering real asset-backed opportunities and unique experiences that are tradeable and redeemable
At Backed we saw the following problems:
Lack of Accessibility: Most alternate asset classes are only accessible to the top 1% due to geographical and economic constraints.
No Safe Venues for Parking of Funds: Stablecoins are not so ‘stable’ during blackswan events and in general do not appreciate in value.
Market Volatility: Popular investment classes such as crypto & stock are volatile and investors lose capital and confidence in trading.
The Team being from geographical region & financial background where not a lot of non traditional venues are available, and seeing how volatile the crypto market investments have been including the de-stability stable coin pegs. We found with the help of the blockchain technology this can be easily solved
Enables investors to invest in assets which are only accessible to the top 1% due to geographical and economic constraints.
Makes investments feasible for the masses by fractional ownership using pools.
Asset-Backed Investment opportunities which are less volatile.
Redemption of Virtual NFTs to tangible assets
Tradable & Redeemable NFTs which enables Exclusive IRL experiences like dine-ins with celebrities

Backed is an execution first product; wherein building early traction will help us stay ahead of the competitors. We have already developed the product in testnet and also validated the idea within the inner investment circle.
We offer a new way of investing in alternate investable assets via fractionalization and possibilities for redemption. Our platform also provides investors with IRL experiences like dine-ins with celebrities etc which are tradeable and redeemable.
We want to make alternate investable assets accessible to the masses. All our competitors are focused on building solutions for a selected few asset classes but we are focused on building solutions for the whole category.
The world is heading towards a global recession and this is making people explore other investment classes to preserve and diversify their wealth. With Backed we are solving this problem by offering asset classes that may stand their value even during a financial crisis.
We are positioned in the market in such a way that makes the product with all its uniqueness be the “uniswap for the investments”. Backed is making the alternative investments come into light for the broader audience who just have exposure to stocks or crypto assets, and also for the newer generations who are buying assets such as sneakers and watches to flex or flip.
