Slise.xyz mid-Q2 2023 Investor Updates: Binance Accelerator + Product Live + First Revenue!
Let's make ads great again
Hello folks! Our product finally went live, and our load 5x’ed with feature requests and servicing real clients. We had to cold start our network, which is not easy but very rewarding work. We saw immense growth in real user interactions, and just in two weeks has reached around 40k crypto-natives with our ads, and pocketed ~$4,000 in revenue. On a different note, happy to share that Slise was accepted into the prestigious Binance Labs MVB program, and going to present at the Demo Day at the end of June. Due to this, we already received a few early checks in, and now starting to take calls with our friendly VCs, before presenting to the general public. Reach out to us now! And keep reading for more exciting details from Slise ;)
Committed traffic (wallets/month): 500k+
Monthly revenue: ~$4,000
Runway: 12+ months
Opportunities to connect: Reach out to schedule a call!
Opportunities to help: If you know projects who want to monetize or advertise—don’t hesitate to introduce them to us.
Most important: Publicly launched our ad platform on May 17. Traction to date:
8 active publishers across DeFi, NFT, and Web3 Gaming
~$4,000 in advertising revenue
200k+ impressions served
40k+ crypto-natives reached (2% of the market)
Running the first ad campaigns for such big brands as QuickNode, Ledger, Trezor, and Hype agency, to name a few.
Apart from core ad campaign creation / serving / tracking / billing, we built and released an Analytics Dashboard for advertisers and publishers with a detailed overview of ad performance by creatives, days, slots, and surfaces. Staying on top of the numbers is one of our values from day 0:
Added automatic UTM-tags generation so our clicks can be tracked and attributed on the product side by attribution tools.
Attended NFT.NYC and met in person our friends and important Web3 Marketing ecosystem players over events from Safary, Jump, Serotonin, and Spindl.
Hired 3 more people: a Senior Full-Stack Engineer and two BD/Sales guys. All three are founders in the past (starting to see a pattern there). Our team distribution now looks like this:
Got accepted into Binance Labs MVB VI cohort (<1% acceptance rate), and now, following two months of the program, going to present at their Demo Day on June 29.
Received a lot of interest after Binance’s announcement, but only were able to take a few quick no-bs checks, due to being occupied with the launch and the clients. Now, we’re going to allocate some time for investment calls, but the normal operations are still there, so we’ll have to limit to 5-10 calls per week. Since we (obviously!) don’t have a lead yet, we invite only VCs who are able to lead or put early checks in the round to the conversation, let’s save yours and ours time!
