Crypto20 ICO summary information

Conceptual Model

CRYPTO20 is a crypto-only index fund that autonomously tracks the top 20 cryptocurrencies in the same way the S&P 500 tracks the top 500 US company stocks. C20 is the fund’s token and represents an investor’s share in the fund. The smart contract allows users to withdraw the net asset value of the token instantly, or it can be freely traded on exchanges at any time, with no exit fees, broker fees or advice fees. Data science was used with extensive backtesting over many rolling windows to determine the fund hyperparameters, asset weighting allocation and rebalancing periods. Holding the perfect, data science driven proportions of the top 20 cryptocurrencies by market cap, with autonomous weekly rebalancing, is now possible by holding a single token.

Project Description

CRYPTO20 is an autonomous cryptocurrency-only portfolio composed by utilizing an index strategy. CRYPTO20 cuts out the middleman, the platform, and is thus able to offer significantly lower fees.CRYPTO20 is not a platform, it is a fully functioning product. CRYPTO20’s utility token is called C20. It can be traded at any time, holdings are fully transparent and there are no legacy banking fees or expensive fund managers. C20 tokens are directly tied to the underlying assets with a novel liquidation option that can be exercised via the smart contract.Team:Daniel Schwartzkopff: Business Development and Marketing Operations.Luke Schwartzkopff: Back-End Development and Data Engineering.Raymond Botha: Systems Engineering.Bobby Jonker: Automated Trading and Financial Markets.Matthew Finlayson: Blockchain Development.Frans Cronje: Statistical Finance.CRYPTO20 will be holding its ICO on the 16th of October, 2017. The ICO token supply represents 87% of the total token supply and the tokens will be available for $1 each at the offering. The ICO funding target is $2,000,000 and is expected to end on the 30th of November, 2017.Token Reserve Split (13%):7.5% Team;0.5% Advisory Team;2.5% Marketing;1.0% Legal;1.0% Security;0.5% Bounty;Sale Prices:$0.95 Pre-sale$1,00 First 48 Hours;$1.05 48 hrs to Week 4 of ICO;$1,10 Week 4-6 of ICO
