We will be taking the 2 key measures to maintain the value of the tokens:

  1. Buyback: CGSPV will purchase the tokens at a market price at the end of every quarter (January 1st; April 1st; July 1st; October 1st) starting July 1st 2018. As 45% of the funds raised would be used to invest in listings on www.crowd-genie.com, 80% of the net income of CGSPV will be used to buy back CGCOIN token from the exchanges where it is listed. This buy back process will happen until the cumulative amount in USD spent on token buy back is equivalent to the amount raised in the ICO.
  2. Demand for use on Crowd Genie ecosystem: As we embed the tokens on the platform and give rewards to users – borrowers and Lenders – to encourage the use of tokens for transactions, we expect that there will be demand from potential users to buy tokens from the marketplace to allow them to use these on the platform. 

CGSPV Pte. Ltd. will mint a maximum of 120,000,000 of CGCOIN, of which:

50,000,000 For sale during the token sale
3,160,000Distribution
3,600,600Marketing & Bounties
3,240,000Founders (2 years vesting period)
35,000,000 For use to facilitate platform transactions (not released during token sale and 2 years lock-in period)
25,000,000 For potential future ICO (not released during token sale and 2 years lock-in period)

No additional CGCOIN are minted, ever.

The token sale is performed with the use of Ethereum smart contract. Since all transactions are confirmed on the blockchain, the smart contract is resistant for security threats.

The smart contract in itself is simple to avoid complex transactions. The smart contract will have extra security since the tokens are minted only when payment is send to the address. This means that only way to receive CGCOIN is by sending payment, making it more resistant to misuse and fraud.

The token sale page shall be held on a DDOS protected environment, on a separate server with writing locks on the token sale page files from the server side. The token sale page will be simple and as static as possible to avoid any complexity. Besides the above, additional security measures are adopted.

CGCOIN is distributed after the token sale is over.

Yes. CGCOIN will be tradable after the token sale. We will let the backers know of the exchange on which it is listed.

 

All tokens are converted on a real-time basis into their equivalent ETH value. 

We use www.coinpayments.net as our payments gateway, and they provide the real-time conversion. 

 

Crowd Genie Financial Services Pte. Ltd. was granted “Dealing in Securities” license by Monetary Authority of Singapore on March 2017 (https://goo.gl/aeNqS3). That being said, Crowd Genie is a licensed platform, and is not allowed, by rules and regulations, to make any direct investments on its platform. Hence, CGSPV Pte. Ltd. was formed with a sole purpose of investing its funds exclusively in offerings listed on www.crowd-genie.com. CGSPV is a related company, legally registered under Crowd Genie Financial Services Pte. Ltd.

All activities on CGSPV will be governed by the Board of Director of Crowd Genie Financial Services Pte. Ltd., and will have legal consequences to Crowd Genie, as both companies are legally bounded.

Monetary Authority of Singapore has provided guidelines on it (https://goo.gl/BiMCnA). The document was reviewed by our legal team, and be Genie ICO is not considered a security.

Crowd Genie already has an operational lending platform. We will expand this to build the tokenized lending platform on Blockchain. On the platform, loans will be pegged to Fiat currency, like USD. For a $ 100,000 loan with $ 10,000 monthly repayment, it will be listed on our platform showing loan amount in USD 100,000 equivalent CGCOIN at then market price. Once successfully funded, borrower can exchange, through a third party crypto exchange, CGCOIN for the currency of his choice, and the borrower will pay back the $ 10,000 installment in the equivalent CGCOIN tokens at the time of repayment.

Smart contract will be published around late January 2018, after Pre-ICO ended.

Crowd Genie is bounded by its “Dealing in Securities” license to have an Escrow Agent. After the crowd-sale is ended, we will work with our legal team on the required approval for our ecosystem expansion. 

There is no refund policy.

CGCOIN is a utility token in our ecosystem. For more information, please read our whitepaper. That said, do note that the value of CGCOIN token depends on the demand, which is shaped by a wide range of factors, including the cryptocurrency exchange rates, news cycle, regulator’s outlook on the industry, emergence of new investors on the market and many others.

Total supply of CGCOIN is 120 mil for which 60 mil of it will be reserved to facilitate platform transactions in future, and will not be released in the token sale. The distribution percentage is hence calculated based on total number of tokens in circulation. For instance, 1 mil out of 60 mil tokens, or approximately 2% after rounding up, will be used to cover the management costs.
