Hello Gold ICO summary information

Conceptual Model

The amount of money in a person’s wallet should not be a barrier to his ability to access financial products that the rich enjoy. HelloGold wants to remove affordability and accessibility from the equation through the democratisation and digitisation of gold-based savings and financing. HelloGold already has a revenue-generating product that allows the mass market consumer to buy and save gold for less than $1. HelloGold Foundation was set up by HelloGold with two primary objectives: 1) accelerating the of blockchain technology for the mass market, and 2) expand the availability of simple financial products that help the underserved and unbanked in emerging markets.

Project Description

HelloGold is a start-up that creates simple and accessible gold products for everyone. Founded in 2015 and headquartered in Malaysia, HelloGold built the world’s first Shariah compliant gold digital application that changes the way users buy and sell gold. HelloGold will aim to increase market access to online gold initially in Thailand, China, Indonesia and the Philippines as well as expanding the product functionality. In recognition for their support and to enable the Foundation to continue operations, HelloGold will distribute 10% of the management fee of their assets under management back to the Foundation. The Foundation may then issue a reward to HGT token holders in the form of a new token, GBT. Each GBT will be backed by 1g of 99.99% investment grade gold. GBT can either be sold on exchange or be converted into a HelloGold customer account containing gold of the same amount and thereby redeemed into cash or physical gold. In the future GBT will also be available for direct purchase, creating a stable coin backed by real asset for use by the crypto-community.Tokens allocated to the HelloGold team and its early backers will be vested over 36 months. 32% of tokens will be distributed in the initial sale with two more rounds expected in 2018/2019. Team:Robin Lee: CEO Wykeen Seet: CTO Ridwan Abdullah: Business Development Manuel Ho: Marketing Joshua Ambrose: Operations Roger Ward: Corporate Development Ita Jalaluddin: Marketing  Token Reserve Split (82%):20% Strategic Investors (Presale)20% Team16% Sale 2 201816% Sale 3 201910% Suppliers
