As far as some regulators are concerned, “cryptocurrencies cannot be regulated because they are decentralized”. Bitcoin is the only cryptocurrency network that cannot be regulated. But it is just a matter of time before regulators get to grips with this and start holding token-issuing companies accountable. We have in fact tried to work with our local regulator in order to assist them with the establishment of their regulatory frameworks. Unlike Facebook’s Libra or Ripple’s XRP, we have not created a new currency or token to enable cross-border payments.

We are using Bitcoin technology for this. We will not be involved in managing the money supply of any currency in any form whatsoever. It is our every intention to stay away from all the controversial matters in the crypto space so that we can get on with the task of helping people.
Yet, ICO’s, and more recently STO’s (security token offerings) have been an extremely easy way for tech start-ups to raise capital. Unfortunately, not everyone wins in the process of buying tokens. The overall cryptocurrency market value tanked since the epic highs of late 2017, and Bitcoin dominance is now in the region of 70%. We are all too familiar with the negative stigma and challenges associated with token offerings.

While our financial model caters for it, our calculator assumes none of the funds are placed in a higher-yield investment vehicle. In essence, we will place all the funds that are raised in a safe, interest-bearing investment vehicle, and attempt to use only the interest that is earned from those funds, to fund our project. Naturally, the more funds we raise, the easier it becomes for our team to only use the interest earned each month, without dipping into the principal amount. Thereafter, we will be in a position to return the principal amount. A security would be some form of tradeable financial asset.
We are not issuing a token or using blockchain lingo in order to abuse your FOMO. We are not grafting existing business models into a cryptocurrency or blockchain technology, business models that can be implemented without a cryptocurrency or blockchain network. We are creating a business and economic model that is not possible (and long-term sustainable) without Bitcoin.

We have had some successes in securing funds, but also many failures. And the ongoing investment-related discussions with potential funders have taken a significant portion of our time, which could have been devoted to the development of our solution. We have therefore resorted to this crowdfunding campaign as an alternative means to secure the much-needed funds. How much funds we raise in total – The more funds we raise, the more interest will be earned on those funds to fund our project needs.
