Digitalizing a $300 Trillion capital market

Cryptocurrency and Blockchain technologies are the way of the future, having created a myriad of new opportunities in every global industry.

But all the benefits of cryptocurrencies can’t be truly realized until larger and more varied capital is opened up to investing.

That’s where Virtuse Exchange’s world-first trading platform is set to change the industry. By integrating the trillions of dollars stored in traditional capital markets with cryptocurrency through the use of Digital Asset Collateralized Tokens (DACTs), we’re enabling what could be the biggest change in investment history.

Virtuse Exchange - Turning gold into blockchain

ALONG WITH THOUSANDS OF OTHER TRADITIONAL ASSETS

Blockchain technology has already been transforming how value is stored, recorded and transferred.

But despite it opening up new financial possibilities to millions of people around the world, they still can’t access Stocks, Commodities, or Futures without having to open bank accounts and pay huge fees to trade.

With Virtuse Exchange, cryptocurrency investors can invest in a huge range of asset classes, simply by buying DACTs that are secured against real world assets. Not only does this offer an exciting new way to invest, it also provides an attractive way to store crypto profits during times of volatility (rather than having to exchange into FIAT).

An exchange like no other

Traditional markets benefit the wealthy and the institutions, cryptocurrency benefits individuals, but with Virtuse Exchange, the world markets will be open to everyone.

Borderless and 24/7/365

Our platform enables anyone in the world to trade both cryptocurrencies and financial assets at any time, in any location. It’s the first true borderless platform that’s 100% crypto.

Trade every global financial asset

Virtuse Exchange will initially launch with basic cryptocurrency pairs. In the second half of 2018, we’ll be adding our unique Digital Asset Collateralized Tokens (DACTs) - asset backed crypto investments in stocks, bonds, commodities and other funds, allowing you to take advantage of every opportunity you can think of.

Revolutionary new digital instruments

In addition to DACTs, we’ll also be offering expertly managed DAFs (Digital Asset Funds) – tokens that are comprised of several coins, with liquidity ensured. These funds will create a whole new class of investment opportunities with virtually unlimited potential - that aren’t available anywhere else.

Fully Secured

Our team has extensive experience in building secure financial trading systems and Virtuse Exchange will be no different. We’re implementing state-of-the-art security technologies to ensure your funds stay safe from hacking and data breaches.

Facility based in Singapore

To attract and enable access to the traditional capital markets, we’ve located our exchange in a major financial hub - Singapore. Whilst our platform will be completely decentralized on blockchain, it still needs an interface with the capital markets, which is why we’ve chosen one of the world’s most diverse and advanced financial trading centres.

Low Fees

Our platform eliminates the need for clearing banks, custodians, excessive brokerage and high exchange fees. As a result, we provide all of the benefits of instant electronic trading, at a fraction of the normal cost.

Community

We’ve involving a huge community of large volume traders, institutional investors, cryptocurrency miners, OTC brokers and market makers to ensure our platform gains strong levels of adoption as quickly as possible.

Opening up trillions of dollars in assets through cryptocurrency

16 of the biggest futures exchanges in the world account for 87% of global market capitalization.

And all of that capitalization is in traditional assets.

By providing anyone with an Ethereum private key the ability to invest in ANY publicly tradeable asset, we’re building a future that everyone can benefit from.

Problems we solve:

Our current landscape, the culmination of growing pains and structural chaos – rife for disruption and innovation.

Incumbent exchanges

Centralized 

Traditional Exchanges are centralized within a few marketplaces, bred of a severe imbalance in market power. These entities result in a cartel-like consolidation of the sector (e.g., 16 of the biggest stock exchanges account for 87% of global market capitalization). Overall, they are losing steam in lieu of the latest global developments. 

Inaccessible 

Due to stark market consolidation and centralization, the current exchanges are able to dictate requirements that present high barriers to entry for small investors and everyday folks. They regularly mandate excessive collaterals, deposits, and trading limits which unashamedly favor large institutional players. 

Expensive 

With centralization also comes the need for intermediaries, such as clearing banks, custodians, and depositories. The added costs of these extra layers render legacy exchanges to be notoriously expensive. Worse, these middlemen have the opportunity to discriminate against different segments of their customers in a wide array of both implicit and explicit ways.

Crypto Exchanges

Insecure 

Many crypto-based exchanges fail to protect the user, often due to their weak IT infrastructures and vulnerability to hacking. There are dozens of exchanges that have had to cease operations due to successful hacks and attacks.

Lack of Innovation

Most crypto exchanges are alike in their product offering, and none of them provide access to tangible, global financial markets. In comparison to the incumbent exchanges, they provide poor market tools, research, and financial analytics to properly manage portfolios and execute strategies.

Poor customer service and language support 

Most existing exchanges provide poor and erratic customer service support. Our international team has professional experience across the globe and are able to provide proper support to traders worldwide.

Born from experience

Unlike many cryptocurrency businesses, Virtuse is not a new company.

As one of the most recognisable energy trading brands in Europe, Virtuse Group has a 12-year track record in business, with revenues of EUR 250 million and clients in 22 countries.

CEO Ras Vasilisin’s experience in international markets, investment banking, brokerage and fintech puts Virtuse in a great position to take on the world.

How the funds will be used

Our Initial Coin Offering (ICO) is expected to raise a further $20,000,000 to help fund:

Global marketing campaigns to drive uptake and increase the demand for VIRT tokens

Future development of the exchange to add new features and trading opportunities

Company liquidity to ensure we have sufficient financial resources to fund our long-term growth plans

Virtuse Exchange will launch as a fully-funded entity, and with the community and revolutionary technology we’re building, we expect to continue to be self-funded from our transactions (even as small as the fees will be).
