FAQ

1
What is Zichain?
Zichain takes a leading role in creating a cryptocurrency asset management industry for private and institutional investors, combining best practices of traditional financial world with innovative technologies. We are developing an ecosystem comprised of several key products: a platform for starting and managing investment funds, news and market data provider, index funds based on a family of our cryptocurrency indexes, crypto-fiat exchange, and a marketplace for financial services.
2
Why are you building Zichain?
We notice the growing interest and attention of a large number of people towards the cryptocurrency world. This is true not only for retail clients, but also for large institutional players. However, investors and managers still do not have a unified solution for convenient, reliable and safe asset management. That’s why we see immense potential in this industry and believe that we can take a significant market share.
3
What are your competitive advantages?
At the moment, there are many decent projects that have released products or at least a prototype. However, all of them only specialize in a small part of investment process. Unlike competitors, Zichain develops a full-fledged ecosystem that opens access to financial infrastructure for investors and managers in one place. As for products and process optimization, we rely upon many years of our experience and best practices of the traditional financial world in order to lay the ground for future development of the crypto asset management industry.
4
Do you have any released products?
We have already released beta-version of CryptoEYE. Beta includes detailed information about our cryptocurrency indexes and the Crypto-wiki with comprehensive coin descriptions. Additional functions such as news aggregaton, publication of our own cryptocurrency content, and offering the investment products through marketplace are going to be released during 2018-2019. The first versions of ZiChange and TheIndex.Fund will be launched in Q2 2018. BAMP with decentralized asset storate will be released at latest in Q2 2019.
5
Who is the target audience of your ecosystem?
ZiChange offers buying and selling digital currency for fiat to everyone somehow connected to the crypto world. TheIndex.Fund is the best choice for passive cryptocurrency investors. BAMP is a convenient solution suitable for every talented fund manager that gives access to the asset management infrastructure and all-in-one trading platform. CryptoEYE is a platform for people curious about cryptocurrencies with which they can get all market data, read news related to their portfolio, and learn information about coins or tokens.

The proceeds from the sale of tokens will be forwarded to achieve goals stated in the roadmap. The work will be focused in the following areas:

  • IT infrastructure – building scalable system architecture

  • Marketing and PR – a widespread promotion of our products in order to take a significant share of the market with low competition and shift to the stage of organic growth
  • Liquidity provision – building up cryptocurrency inventory and launching market making algorithms for ZiChange.
  • Hiring of talented employees, building partnerships with best counterparties, and creating teams to localize products in 10 languages
  • Legal support – fund securitization in order to allow access for investors from any country, security tokens registration, and licensing of investment activities in major and most important jurisdictions
  • Cybersecurity – developing an architecture to secure users’ funds and data in possibly the most reliable way
