Caviar Team with 5-Year Track Record Pioneers Dual-Purpose Token for Crypto and Real Estate, Pre-Sale Begins November 28

Bitcoin Press Release: Global Advisors Join Established Caviar Team of Tech, Finance & Real-Estate Veterans with 5-Yr Track Record of Successful Multi-Million-Dollar Real Estate Debt Fund to Offer Solution-Based Approach in Diversifying Cryptocurrency Investments

28 November 2017, The Cayman Islands – Caviar has announced that the pre-sale of its ICO will begin on November 28 for its pioneering approach to build a dual-purpose token and crowdfunding platform built on the Ethereum blockchain. Caviar’s token offers access to stable real estate and cryptocurrencies, with built-in downside protection and automatic diversification. The team behind Caviar has successfully managed a multi-million-dollar real estate debt fund since 2013, and brings years of experience and research to this project. Caviar is powered by Intelligent Predictive Model (IPM), an artificial intelligence algorithm, allowing for stronger predictive power and more effective asset allocation. In addition, Caviar Platform will allow real estate developers to raise funds for their upcoming projects, and for Caviar token holders to earn additional rewards by staking their tokens. Caviar launches its pre-sale on November 28 with the goal of raising $25 million.

Caviar’s team of advisors includes the esteemed blockchain investment expert David Drake, Chairman of LDJ Capital; Ivan Labrie, a top trader on Tradingview.com; James Sowers, ICO Advisor, Angel Investor and Crypto Capitalist; Gabriel Jarrosson, a French entrepreneur, crypto investor and a founder of a private crypto investment group; NASA-recognized inventor and data scientist David Wirth; Mikhail Savchenko, CTO at Chronobank.io; and James Jamil, Executive Director of the Wall Street Blockchain Alliance. Commenting on what differentiates Caviar and their reasons to join, several advisors shared the following:

 

  • Investors Uniquely Offered Real Assets: “While there are immense profits to be made from the volatility of the market, investors of cryptocurrency are offered little in the way of real assets. Caviar has a compelling offering with a diversified approach in real estate, cryptocurrencies and crypto-assets that lowers the cost of management, reduces entry costs for investors, and removes the problem of illiquidity associated with traditional real estate investments. I am proud to join Caviar’s innovative team of blockchain, real estate, technology and finance experts as they prepare for their ICO,” said Drake.
  • Hedging Exposure in a Bear Market: “In my experience as a trader, I found that Caviar’s offering could be a great alternative for storing value in crypto, without having to deal with security or volatility risks. The fund would deal with positioning in and out of crypto assets, and with security of funds which would result in lower risk than holding any other crypto asset. During a bear market or market correction, crypto assets outside of fiat pegged ones, would suffer a loss in value, which could be severe. An individual holding BTC or any other coin, would have significant risk if holding funds at an exchange, but would also have a hard time securing funds unless tech savvy: it’s a real problem, having no way to hedge exposure without dealing with custodians and associated risks due to how correlated all coins are, and dependent on BTC. I haven’t seen a similar project, outside of the ones that offer tokenized fund management — which aren’t doing too well for now,” Labrie stated.
  • From a Data Perspective — Caviar Different in a Good Way: “Caviar has a two-pronged approach to ensuring profitability for token holders. It relies on hard assets (in this case, short term loans for real estate improvement) to provide limited downside protection, and also a unique predictive model (IPM) I helped develop, which will be used to build a robust and aggressive hedge-fund-like portfolio of novel crypto assets and cryptocurrencies. Unlike other ICO’s on the market, such a system will use an artificial intelligence engine which draws upon large databases collected and aggregated by automated systems. The engine will allow us to capitalize on unique opportunities in the cryotocurrency markets and build positions quicker than other ICO’s,” Wirth stated.

 

Real Estate a Key Role in Diversification Strategy

In a recent Caviar blog post, partner Guy Neumann further explains real estate’s role in Caviar’s diversification strategy. Caviar combines large cap and most stable cryptocurrencies, select new token projects, and real estate, utilizing its’ proprietary Intelligent Predictive Model in order to perfectly time investment decisions. Caviar is the successor to Caviar Capital, which, in the past five years, successfully financed dozens of redevelopment projects and has a 0% default rate, 0 late payments and an average IRR (internal rate of return) of 16% per year. Since its inception, Caviar Capital has consistently outperformed S&P 500 Real Estate and S&P 500 Bond indices by over 300%.

According to Neumann, Caviar’s team requires borrowers to have demonstrated a history of completing at least three real estate development projects in the past. “We work with seasoned developers, those who take their business seriously and do it full time,” noted Neumann.

One of those established customers is Corey Kosiensky, a Connecticut-based Real Estate Developer and Caviar Capital’s client since 2013, who commented on his experience of working with the team: “It’s been a pleasure working with Caviar’s team for the past 4 years. True professionals, Caviar has been a valued partner, helping my real estate development business expand much faster than I anticipated.”

Higher Returns for Real Estate Investment & Diversified Portfolios for Traditional Investors with Digital Currency

By combining crypto assets and real estate, Caviar aims to offer a higher rate of return than traditional real estate investments, while maximizing downside protection. In addition, Caviar will provide traditional investors with the financial benefits of a more diversified portfolio that includes digital currencies. In a recently published back-tested study of Caviar’s historical performance, partner Alex Shvayetsky noted that:

 

“If history were to repeat itself (of course, we cannot guarantee future performance), then based on distributions alone, anyone buying tokens at pre-sale with a 30% discount (token price would be $0.07) would triple their investment within one year. These results are not taking into account any token appreciation, which, based on historical performance and Caviar’s buyback mechanism (future performance is not guaranteed), could be significantly more. And, as impressive as these numbers are, Caviar’s long-term advantage would be even more evident in the bear crypto market. During market downturns, which are inevitable, Caviar would be in a unique position to shift more funds to real estate and still provide returns to investors, as well as exposure to real assets as collateral.”

 

Although cryptocurrency traders can profit from the volatility of the market, they are offered little in the way of real assets.  Caviar provides a unique opportunity for crypto-investors to diversify their portfolio through exposure to real estate.  Caviar’s tokenization approach to investments in real estate, cryptocurrencies and crypto-assets lowers the cost of management, reduces entry costs for investors, and removes the problem of illiquidity associated with traditional real estate investments, as partner Kirill Bensonoff notes in the article “Caviar Token Economics: Liquidity, NAV and Future Growth Explained.”

Coinvest Project by Microsoft Employees Announces ICO

Bitcoin Press Release: Coinvest, a blockchain project led by former Microsoft employees, has announced an ICO to raise $30 million to fund development of its decentralized stock market for cryptocurrencies.

November 10, 2017, Dallas, TX — Coinvest, an emerging startup comprised of Microsoft alumni, is announcing that it will offer a crowdsale of $30 million in COIN tokens to seed the world’s first decentralized stock market for cryptocurrencies, built on blockchain technology.

Crowdsale funds will be leveraged to continue the development of its products and drive the company’s mission of:

“Creating decentralized tools for the world to seamlessly, securely, and safely invest and use cryptocurrencies.”

Frustrated with the complexity, fragmentation, and quality of cryptocurrency investment options available on the market, Coinvest is determined to democratize cryptocurrencies by creating tools to:

  • Provide mechanisms for consumers to seamlessly, securely, and safely invest and use cryptocurrencies
  • Empower anyone to create investment vehicles for a personally curated index of cryptonized assets using one platform, one wallet, and one coin.

 

At the core of its product portfolio is the Coinvest protocol: A blockchain protocol defining investment transactions between users and the Coinvest smart contracts. Supporting the protocol is the Coinvest DAPP. The Coinvest DAPP empowers anyone to virtually invest in individual assets or a curated index of cryptonized assets through one coin. To do so, users create virtual portfolios and trade their favorite cryptocurrencies using market buy, limit buy, sell, and short orders. Orders are executed with the COIN token which are sent and held in escrow by the Coinvest smart contract.

The Coinvest DAPP and smart contracts keep track of all investment data including assets, distributions, etc. Upon executing sell orders, the smart contract releases invested funds and any profits back to the Coinvest DAPP. Users can then spend cryptocurrencies directly from the DAPP using their wallet or Coinvest debit account. All transactions and funds are digitally automated by open-source computer code and are never touched or managed by any third-party.

Coinvest is creating a future where users have one platform, one wallet, and one token (COIN), that enables anyone to create a digital investment portfolio to invest in multiple cryptocurrencies. Thereby reducing the cost, risk, and complexity associated with investing in cryptocurrencies on centralized exchanges or investment funds. Centralized third parties that are often needed in traditional investment use cases are replaced with smart contracts that act as autonomous agents and programmatically compensate all users, investors, and owners within the entire Coinvest ecosystem.

“By leveraging blockchain, smart contract, and Coinvest technology, investors now enjoy reduced transaction costs, autonomous investment options, and complete trust. For the first time, we are placing the power back into the hands of the public, and empowering them to invest in cryptocurrencies using the most decentralized, cost-effective, and seamless process possible,” says Coinvest founder and executive director Damon Nam.

Coinvest is offering contributors the opportunity to purchase COIN Tokens at http://coinve.st during its crowdsale this winter. Raising the crowdsale max cap of $30 million will create two reserves to ensure liquidity and collateral to back all user investments. Additionally, accelerate the development of additional tools to help investors all across the world.

DARICO, A Cryptocurrency to Address Volatility, Illiquidity and Correlation Issues Plaguing the Cryptocurrency Market

Bitcoin Press Release:  Darico, a unique asset-backed cryptocurrency combines the goodness of the best reserves of both worlds – Bitcoin and Gold.

September 17, 2017, Zug, Switzerland- Darico is an exciting new concept quickly coming to life. The Switzerland based project is working towards becoming the first digital currency to combine the benefits of bitcoin’s growth potential, security and peace of mind offered by gold into a single cryptocurrency. The team, currently in the process of creating an entire “Investment ecosystem” is soon going to launch the crowdsale, offering an opportunity for people to become part of the new financial revolution.

The cryptocurrency Darico stands for “Decentralized, Asset-backed, Return-focused, Investment-grade Coin”. The cryptocurrency is backed by a unique combination of assets to potentially eliminate the volatility, otherwise associated with individual digital currencies like Bitcoin and others. By doing so, the virtual currency not only ensures the best interests of the coin holders, but also attracts more people to adopt Darico, and in turn digital currencies.

The multi-asset backed Darico is backed by a combination of Gold and Bitcoin, alongside Ether which further diversifies the reserves. Bitcoin and Gold reserves make up to 55% and 35% respectively. Bitcoin’s assure growth in value over time is combined with the rock-solid price stability exhibited by gold. A small percentage of Ether reserves ensures that Darico is future-proofed, thanks to the growth potential of Ethereum protocol as it gains wide-spread adoption in the decentralized blockchain solutions segment.

The Founder & CEO of Darico, Mojtaba Asadian said,

“Investors are more sophisticated now. They’re increasingly looking to alternative ways to diversify their portfolios with an aim to generate strong returns while reducing volatility, being backed by physical and digital assets (or bitcoin and gold), darico can address their need.”

The Darico project has received significant attention from the cryptocurrency community since the team started working on it a few months ago. The less than a year project will soon hold a crowdsale, scheduled for Q4 2017. Exact dates for the token sale will be announced soon.

The funds raised during the crowdsale will be utilized to procure assets necessary for building the reserves. The platform has set the maximum cap at 60 million coins for the crowdsale, which can be bought against BTC or ETH payments. Any unsold tokens following the crowdsale will be burnt to conserve the cryptocurrency’s value. Furthermore, an additional 180 million coins (240 million in total) will be distributed in the next 18 years through auto-mining.

The participants in the upcoming crowdsale will be entitled to the Darico Investors’ Genesis Account, allowing them to benefit from the darico coins mined by them. Those interested in participating in the crowdsale can find more information on the Darico website.
