ivyKoin’s Estimated Circulating Supply Market Cap will be US$84 million post TGE
ivyKoin’s TGE is planned to occur in this quarter (Q1 2018).
Once the TGE occurs, the circulating supply market capitalisation will be US$84 million.
Note that this figure is an estimate only and the company does not guarantee that the figure will be realised. It is based on US $15 million raising and circulating supply at TGE. Non-circulating supply includes tokens reserved for the establishment of global financial partnerships, institutional partnerships, fiat to fiat hedging, and future token sales.
The Company proposes that the Tokens will be used as part of a digital platform which it also proposes to develop and which would facilitate payments (ivyKoin Network).
If implemented, token holders may have the ability to voluntarily de-anonymise transaction data to the satisfaction of financial institutions in order to facilitate transactions using cryptocurrency with the security and reliability of the blockchain.
Post Issuance Holdings - Total Tokens
ivyKoin Treasury - Used to facilitate ivySend transactions and other treasury functions.
Growth Pool - Used to incentivize partners including financial institutions to test and adopt ivyKoin.
Management and Advisory Pool - Incentivize current advisors and future management to join the company.
Token Sales - Includes all tokens sold up to the TGE, including all prior token sales and associated token based fees.
ivyKoin Reserve - Only used to fund further development and operating costs if required.
The ivyKoin Opportunity - A Highly Disruptive Superior Technology
Global financial institution payments are significant.
One platform, SWIFT, processes US$5 trillion per day, of US$1.25 quadrillion per year.
Compared to traditional payment networks, financial institutions wish to see varying information, depending on the purpose of the payment. However, currently, the data sent through all major networks (SWIFT, CHIPS,FEDWIRE, ACH) is very limited.
The benefits of cryptocurrency vs incumbent financial systems are well understood.
The cryptocurrency market is broadening and deepening at a rapid rate, with a current cryptocurrency coin market capitalisation of over US$420 billion (as of 2nd February 2018). Please note the market cap of cryptocurrencies is highly volatile and subject to significant fluctuations.
Whilst the advantages of and potential for these currencies is well recognised, anonymity has prevented wider mainstream adoption as there are a lack of financial institutions that support transactions involving cryptocurrencies.
The primary reason for this lack of support within the global banking and financial industry is due to the applicable regulation that requires certain transaction information that is inconsistent with anonymity.
When implemented, the ivyKoin Network will have distinct advantages over incumbent financial systems and competing cryptocurrencies.
The ivyKoin Network will enable KYC, KYT, and AML data supporting transactions to be captured using a blockchain-based cryptocurrency.
It is intended that ivyKoin will collect transaction specific information based on payment type and make it easily accessible to financial institutions. Transaction data will be made available to satisfy the stringent requirements of financial institutions and intermediaries.
ivyKoin will be optimally designed for transactions with financial institutions, embedding far more compliance and transaction audit information than incumbent payment networks.
ivyKoin seeks to bridge the gap between current global financial systems and the emergence of cryptocurrencies, positioning itself as the future for global payments.
Comparison to Incumbent Financial Systems
When implemented, the ivyKoin Network will be far more descriptive than the existing systems and processes.
When fully developed, the primary differences between the ivyKoin Network and traditional payment networks will be that the ivyKoin Network:
- will securely facilitate the transfer of cryptocurrency payments while associating KYC and KYT data via the trusted, distributed ivyKoin network;
- will securely store an immutable reference to supporting transaction data in a public blockchain;
- will embed more KYT information into the transfer than traditional payment methods;
- will embed more KYC information into the transfer than traditional payment methods;
- will be able to be integrated into existing banking software;
- will offer easy integration into accounting software for bookkeeping efficiency, and;
- will provide revocable access to KYC/KYT data to financial institutions, accountants, company managers and others, depending on the information they require.
In regards to KYC and KYT, frequently used incumbent payment formats typically support collecting relatively few data points. The table below indicates the approximate volume of KYC/KYT data points included in a typical transaction:
Depending on the type of financial transaction being performed, it is anticipated that the ivyKoin Network will allow for the inclusion of more than 120 different KYT data points and more than 70 different KYC data points in transaction messages.
A convenient way to categorise these data points is according to the documentation source from which they might originate:
ivyKoin’s technology would be particularly useful for transactions exceeding $10,000 which require extensive verification in the international monetary system, as it is intended that its technology will embed far more Know Your Transaction (”KYT”) and Know Your Customer (“KYC”) information into payments than incumbent payment networks.
