What is Convergence 

Convergence is a DeFi protocol that aims to democratize investments, making private markets public, in other words, it would serve as a bridge so that anyone can participate in investment rounds that would otherwise be closed. Conv is the platform they offer to raise funds and obtain exclusive investment opportunities in advance, in the form of tokens, in addition to the classic products of any DeFi platform (Staking, Swaps, Liquidity Pools, and more).

Currently, this type of strategic alliance is a way to visualize the most trusted actors in the cryptocurrency market. Both the project that receives the support and the exchange that serves as a boost must go through filters, the idea is that everything is adequate for the financial health of the users involved.

From the core value proposition of Convergence, there are many activities that can be executed with Bitfinex in the future, after all, Bitfinex also actively participates in closed investment rounds, which could raise capital through Convergence, offering the possibility of participating in quality investments to a greater number of users. Clearly, all this is speculative, both proposals are in fact compatible with each other, which makes the fact that there is space for these initial alliances even more important.

For now, Bitfinex is adding to its main qualities, the ability to promote projects that offer solutions to real problems, creating a positive scenario for the parties involved.
