With a surge of interest in the cryptocurrency market that comes from professional investors like ventures, hedge funds, institutions and crypto funds, it is expected that the cryptocurrency market will become more trustworthy. Investments in cryptocurrencies are expected to grow, but investors will be more selective and focused on quality of ICOs. Traders will likely manage crypto assets in a way similar to traditional investing.
Signiﬁcant volatility, lack of regulation and technology and market immaturity will remain in place, meaning investments in crypto assets will continue to be high risk. Financial instruments for risk hedging are still mostly missing for the cryptocurrency asset class. AHedgeFund strives to bring institutional-class securities to the crypto world. We will develop a swap execution platform within the cryptocurrency ecosystem and introduce swap contracts. All traded derivatives will be settled in cryptocurrency.
Swap contracts are proven to hedge against currency volatility, company impairment and defaults in the traditional market, and they can be replicated for crypto assets. Our ﬁrst target will be hedging against the decline in Bitcoin and Ethereum exchange rates. We will then build hedging instruments for ICO investors.
To achieve this, we will create a swap execution platform on the Ethereum blockchain that will use smart contracts for automatic transactions.
AHedgeFund swaps will reshape the world of cryptocurrency investments. Financial derivatives add stability to the market structure and thus will attract new investors and increase market capitalization. A benchmarking system for ICOs — to be constructed — will induce healthy investment decisions. Swap tokens may also be used solely as a mechanism for proﬁt, which can drive the establishment of a secondary market for crypto derivatives.
AHEDGEFUND Sagl is a hedge fund based in Switzerland. We offer access to crypto assets on a basis of monthly liquidity and transparency and to the highest standards of security. AHEDGEFUND will capitalize on trading derivatives on top of underlying crypto assets. Fantastic returns on emerging markets imply high risks, but by being the ﬁrst swap trading platform, we hope to capitalize on this. We see great potential in pioneering this new market.
Funds from the AHF token sale will be used to launch an automatic swap execution platform, establish a reserve fund, support operations and marketing and to reward the team
