HOLDVEST – Your universal gateway to the crypto markets
HOLDVEST is an all-in-one platform that provides a powerful but user-friendly gateway to the cryptocurrency markets, enabling anyone to access blockchain investment opportunities with a minimum of difficulty and without requiring extensive experience of specialist crypto exchanges.
Key to the value offered by HOLDVEST is its built-in liquidity aggregator, which automatically connects the user with many different exchanges in order to obtain the best spot price for any supported cryptocurrency. At the same time its clean, straightforward user interface is suitable for novice investors and experienced traders alike. HOLDVEST therefore combines the simplicity of a brokerage with the low fees and high liquidity enabled by accessing multiple exchanges, all within a single portal.
Unlike many other crowdfunded blockchain projects, HOLDVEST already has working software and a functional website. Additional funding is sought via an ICO on the Waves platform in order to extend this and bring further value to both tokenholders and the wider cryptocurrency community.
Users will interact with the platform via the HOLDVEST token (HDL), which will be hosted on the Waves blockchain and will be used to pay for trading fees and services such as Premium features (e.g. margin trading) and advertising. Customers will be able to use HDL to secure discounts on these. Where other currencies are paid, these will immediately be converted to HDL using the platform’s internal aggregator engine. 50% of all HDL received in this way, whether directly or indirectly, will be burned to ensure constant demand.
- Buy and sell supported cryptocurrencies at the best price from one account. Users do not need separate accounts for several different cryptocurrency exchanges, or to be familiar with the quirks and nuances of each one. HOLDVEST enables them to buy and sell popular cryptocurrencies for the best price and for the lowest fees.
- Unique internal liquidity aggregator.This is achieved by HOLDVEST’s custom-designed matching engine, which connects to dozens of different exchanges in real time, using their combined orderbooks to buy and sell cryptocurrencies at the most advantageous prices for customers. The concept is similar in principle to the process employed by instant exchange services such as ShapeShift and Changelly. However, in the case of HOLDVEST the engine is built into a traditional exchange interface and the list of supported currencies is much larger. Additionally, the savings brought about by this approach are passed on to the customer, making it both extremely convenient and much cheaper to use. Moreover, the engine is constantly being updated and improved, and there are already a number of planned optimisations that will make it suitable for use by high-frequency traders.
- ICO investment. As well as buying and selling popular and promising cryptocurrencies, HOLDVEST’s users will also be able to invest in new blockchain projects and participate in token sales for new initiatives, directly from the platform. New token listings, ICO ratings and token distribution will take place via the user’s account. HOLDVEST will be conducting its own ICO on the platform to prove its stability and trustworthiness.
- Easy access to crypto index funds. In the same way that index funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) provide investors with exposure to a diversified and risk-balanced portfolio of assets in the traditional financial sector, HOLDVEST will give users the opportunity to distribute their funds across multiple different cryptocurrencies and tokens using a series of crypto index funds. As well as including a number of our own flagship indices (e.g. Top 10 coins by market cap; Top 5 Ethereum assets, etc), we will enable traders to put together their own index portfolios. These will be rated by their success, allowing the development of an open market of custom crypto indices with flexible fees, backed by real transactions on top exchanges.
- All-in-one portfolio management. HOLDVEST’s aim is to provide a unified portal for blockchain and cryptocurrency investment that enables users to acquire, hold and trade all of the products they want to within a single, powerful application. As new currencies and opportunities arise in the blockchain space, these will quickly become available on the platform. HOLDVEST is committed to staying up-to-date with the latest developments, integrating new exchanges and allowing its users to access these new opportunities as soon as possible.
- Simple and expert UI options. HOLDVEST features a clean, intuitive interface that provides a low-friction user experience suitable for new and advanced users alike. Accessing different cryptocurrency markets can be achieved in one click. More experienced users will appreciate interactive charts, online analytics and mobile apps for on-the-go portfolio management.
- Cold/external wallet withdrawals. Cold storage and user-controlled wallets vastly reduce the risks of hacking, theft and downtime inherent in centralised crypto exchanges. HOLDVEST will allow users to transfer cryptocurrencies or ICO tokens directly to an external wallet immediately after they have been purchased, meaning that no funds need to be held on the platform.
- A commitment to decentralisation. With the rise of user-friendly decentralised exchanges (DEXs), HOLDVEST will be connected to more and more of these peer-to-peer cryptocurrency marketplaces. Users will increasingly be able to enjoy near-instant execution of their orders with zero risk. Moreover, as a greater number of users come to our platform, we will be able to match their orders effectively against each other on a peer-to-peer basis using our own internal DEX, further decreasing reliance on third-party exchanges.
