CoinMarketCap launches CMC Labs, an accelerator providing guidance and resources to empower the next generation of Web3 founders.
CoinMarketCap (CMC) has launched CMC Labs, a startup accelerator program designed to empower the next generation of Web3 founders. This highly selective one-year program provides ambitious crypto entrepreneurs with the tools and resources needed to succeed in the rapidly evolving world of Web3.
What Is CMC Labs?
CMC Labs is like a turbo-boost for crypto projects. Through strategic guidance, unparalleled market insights, and amplified awareness across CMC's 340M+ monthly users, participants can gain the momentum they need to become big names in the industry.
The program offers a comprehensive curriculum covering essential topics like tokenomics, marketing tactics, operations, and more.
Startups accepted into the program gain exclusive access to CMC's crypto market intelligence and audience.
With a comprehensive view of the cryptocurrency market including 26K+ listed coins and tokens, 2M+ tracked cryptos, and 650+ exchanges, CMC Labs participants will gain strategic insights to position themselves for success as Web3 continues to evolve.
CMC Labs also opens doors to an invaluable network of partners like Polygon, Avalanche, BNB Chain, and GSR. These connections provide technical support, networking opportunities, and potential investment.
These connections provide startups with the technical guidance and funding opportunities needed to scale sustainably. CMC Labs condenses years of network building into one high-value program.
Additionally, startups who participate in the year-long CMC Labs accelerator program will gain additional awareness via:
Learn & Earn Campaigns
One of the perks of CMC Labs is launching a ‘Learn & Earn’ campaign on CoinMarketCap. Learn & Earn campaigns generate high engagement by requiring users to learn about the project and complete short quizzes in order to earn token rewards.
With hundreds of new projects launching daily, it's difficult for users to keep up.
A Learn & Earn campaign helps enthusiasts understand your project's key features and value proposition. Gamifying the experience incentivizes users to invest their time into actually learning about you.
On average, CMC Learn & Earn campaigns attract over 580K+ participants, generate over 800K+ clicks and rack up over 2M+ page views. This level of engagement allows projects to build strong brand awareness and community loyalty right from the start.
This ensures your biggest fans stay up-to-date on all your latest updates and announcements. It also allows CMC to send them push notifications for significant price movements, prompting users to visit your CMC coin page.
The average CMC Airdrop campaign attracts 150K+ participants. Projects typically see their Watchlist followers increase by over +6,000% and Community followers by over +20,000%.

Infographics simplify complex ideas into an easily digestible and shareable format. When distributed across CMC's social media channels, they can help communicate your project's value proposition to mainstream crypto audiences.
Vibrant visuals also have a higher likelihood of being re-shared organically, expanding your brand imprint.
CMC Live Spaces
The Web3 space moves at breakneck speed, so the ability to connect with your community in real time is invaluable. CMC Labs provides that opportunity through exclusive Twitter Spaces-like events on CMC Community.
