ABOUT

MOBU is a next generation user-friendly smart contract and all-in-one platform for real businesses (security tokens).

Launching an ICO that offers a security token can be extremely challenging due to the magnitude of technical, legal and regulatory requirements and procedures. As an organised ICO platform MOBU offers a complete blockchain solution to expand the horizons and solve the problems of cryptocurrency developers who are hesitant and unsure about all the procedures required when offering security tokens to the cryptocurrency community.

How It Works?

Real businesses wishing to raise capital by issuing security tokens will build their ICOs on the MOBU platform. MOBU creates an abstract smart contract from which all security token ICOs will be extended. The MOBU abstract smart contract will contain the code that is required by the security token ICOs to conform to the MOBU ERC20 platform and the MOB20 standard to adapt to the ideas and requirements of MOBU.

Why Security Tokens?

As the cryptocurrency market evolves, the global adoption of ICO fundraising structures has led to an explosion of new capital formation that has outpaced both the seed and venture capital investment markets. However, approximately 98% of these ICOs launched utility tokens. The securities market is a multi-trillion-dollar arena which remains virtually untouched in the blockchain space. We know that a security token start-up can be a legal, technical and regulatory nightmare. MOBU is a decentralised organised all-in-one platform to launch validated security tokens. Security tokens improve traditional financial products in a number of ways:

Fees are lower

The total costs of launching successful ICOs are a lot more cost effective in raising funds than IPOs. Most IPO costs originate from payments owed to middlemen like bank institutions. Security Tokens remove the need for most bankers which lower fees while smart contracts may decrease the reliance on lawyers in future. Smart contracts decrease the complexity, costs and paperwork with managing securities (collecting signatures, wiring of funds, mailing of distribution checks, etc.).

Transfers instantaneous

By removing the middlemen from investment transactions issuers are able to conclude quicker timelines to successfully offer their security. Instant and prompt trade settlement on the secondary market for Security Tokens will become an attractive advantage for issuers and investors as well.

Exposure to the free market

It is challenging for investors in Asia to invest in private US companies or real estate. Therefore, most investment transactions today lack exposure to a global investor base. With Security Tokens, asset owners simply market their deals to anyone with an internet connection. This free market exposure will lead to a notable reform in asset valuations since any asset that is not exposed to a free market is inaccurately priced.

Investor base is larger

ICOs now raise more capital than IPOs. The potential investor base is drastically increased when asset owners can present deals to anyone with an internet connection. It is obvious that asset owners prefer to show his/her investment opportunity to every potential investor in the world and not be restricted to only US accredited investors and institutions. Competition is healthy and beneficial for financial markets on long-term.

Service functions are automated

With Security Tokens, issuers will start to use smart contracts to automate the service provider function through software. In most transactions lawyers are less middlemen and more service providers. This does not necessarily indicate that lawyers will cease to exist, but rather that their function will be more advisory based.

Decreased manipulation by financial institutions

The likelihood for corruption and manipulation by financial institutions is decreased if those institutions are removed from the investment transaction process.


Team

CEO

Chartered Accounting degree at the North West University, South Africa and an Honours B.Comm.Cost and Management Accounting degree obtained at the University of South Africa (Unisa).

Juan completed his RPE’s and wrote the Stockbroker SAIS examinations enabling him to trade directly on the JSE and providing financial advice on the stock market. During his audit articles at BDO, the 5th largest audit firm in the world, he gained valuable experience in financial and investment management of several leading SouthAfrican companies. As equity trader at Goldings, Torr & De Decker Stockbrokers in Sandton, South Africa, Juan traded with multi-millions directly on the JSE for two years and learned from the best as a young graduate. He bought his first shares at the age of 15 and have been involved in business ever since. Juan gained invaluable knowledge and experience on senior management level when he was appointed as Group Financial Manager at Shopfitting Studio in Pretoria, South Africa. Prominent franchises such as Reggies, Famousbrands, Contempo, Chamberlains, Coricraft and Rhapsody’s were some of their respected clients. Thereafter, Juan was appointed as Portfolio Manager at SA Asset Management in Pretoria, South Africa where he broadened his expertise in finance, investments and the stock market. Juan established Evolve Fund Managers in 2013 and acts as director (in co-operation with the directors of Goldings, Torr & De Decker Stock Broking firm in Sandton, South Africa) managing investors’ funds in pension funds, discretionary mandates and several other types of investments. Juan also acts as director of RFS Asset Management and Khalifa Capital that also specialise in asset management. Juan expanded his horizons when he realised the huge potential of blockchain technology and how it will revolutionize business and redefine companies and economies in the world. Juan established Zaber Import Export (Pty) Ltd and subsequently acts as CEO of the company.

They manage four large cryptomining farms that showed a turnover of ZAR 100 mil for 2017 alone. As CEO of Zaber Import Export, Juan recognised the huge potential of the huge arbitration opportunity in commodities in Zimbabwe and exports chrome and lithium to Dubai as well. As CEO of Zabercoin ICO Juan gained invaluable knowledge, experience and lessons on how to successfully raise funds on the blockchain. In his endeavours, he was afforded the opportunity to establish strong business relationships with strong leaders in the blockchain space and cryptocurrency community. Juan has learned a valuable lesson namely that there is more to an ICO than just the “hype”. For example, although he personally invested 1 million USD into Zabercoin he believes this to be a learning curve appointed for a greater purpose and long-term goal. “The best way of learning anything is by doing it and not to be embarrassed if things do not always go according to plan but to learn from them and start again.” – Richard Branson. When Juan takes an idea, he flies with it. He takes bold actions when everyone else is afraid to venture into uncharted waters. Juan’s individuality, ability to recognise opportunities, strategic decision-making skills, passion and persistence make Juan a very successful entrepreneur. Juan will play a vital role in leading MOBU to big heights and great success.
