TaaS - First Closed End Fund of Cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrencies have shown a tremendous growth in the past two years. The interest in Cryptocurrencies too has increased in this world. But there are several problems that investors experience, and many end up in losses.

Reasons of losses are-

Inexperienced traders buying pumps and selling on dumps.
Investments in scam ICO/cryptocurrency
Investment in projects that aren't transparent to its users. They carry a risk of losing all their investment.
Lack of liquidity of some cryptocurrencies/on some exchange. There is a big risk in investments on cryptocurrencies that don't have much volume. Liquidating a cryptocurrency with low trade volume, involves drastic fall in its price and could lead to losses.
Missing out pumps for selling a cryptocurrency due to lack of time.


So, in this article I would be discussing about a project which solves these problems.
This project is TaaS (Token as a Service).

Introduction


TaaS is the first ever closed end fund for crypto assets. Instead of managing your funds yourself, experts would be managing your funds. An important feature of TaaS is that it would only accept investments in ICO phase. However, TaaS tokens would be tradable on cryptocurrency exchanges after the ICO ends. TaaS would be giving periodic dividends to all its investors.


In subsequent Article I will discuss, how TaaS solves the problems I mentioned in the starting of the article. Also, I have created a calculator which would let you estimate your profits from your investment in TaaS.

Funds are managed by Experienced traders and a Trusted Team.

Have a look at their team-





TaaS would be distributing 50% of quarterly profits between ask TaaS holders. And the payment of this 50% is automatic and governed by an Ethereum smart contract. 25% is reinvested in the fund, which increases the Net Asset Value of the fund. And other 25% is the management fees.

TaaS is Transparent to Everyone

With the advanced cryptographic audit technology, TaaS becomes one of the most transparent investment in Blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

On an Audit page ask the API view only keys are given. Which would give another to ability to verify trades and balance on an exchange account. Also, all the money in first can also be studied by the SSL signature of online bank sessions.


Proven Results

TaaS showed that in 2016 , the altcoins market grew by over 300%. This shows that there is a good scope of making profits out of investments in Altcoin. The index they designed got them returns (on paper) of 300% without rebalancing and managing it periodically.
Periodic management of funds would have given even more returns.
From my personal experience, I converted $100 of Ethereum into $1000 in only 15 days. While in the same period Ethereum grew only by 4 times. And I would like to mention that I'm not any pro trader. I didn't learn trading from anywhere.

Since, TaaS has got a team of experienced traders which can increase the returns of this fund significantly.

To ensure there is enough liquidity of funds and be safe from scam exchanges, trades would only be made on trusted exchanges like Poloneix, Kraken and Bittrex.


Expected Profit

Now Coming to Expected profits. While there is always a risk associated with cryptocurrencies, still the funds managed by experts would have a significant lower risk.
If the same trend continue as 2016, it means 300% profits, out of which 50% will be distributed. Which means ROI of investment within an year. And additionally, you also hold TaaS token whose value would keep on increasing.

For example: Let's consider an Average scenario.
TaaS is able to gain 10% in profits in each quarter.
If we assume TaaS price to be $1 in ICO.
You get 5% of returns in first quarter. Also the NAV increases by 2.5% . In the next quarter you get 5.125% returns (as NAV increased). In that way your earning percentage increases after each dividends payout.
But there is also a small correction, only 75% of funds collected in ICO would be used for investments.
I have considered this correction in next section.


Do your own Calculations Here


It is always recommended that investors should do their own calculations.

So, Here is a widget I designed to make that easier. In the first field enter the percentage profits TaaS will make quarterly (according to you). In second field enter the time duration of your investment  (in Number of Quarters). 4 Quarters = 1 Year.
The output will show you the ROI (in percentage) for the given time duration (from dividends only).


Invest in TaaS : Here

Details of ICO

For every investment in TaaS , you will get TaaS ERC 20 Ethereum tokens. Holding a TaaS represents your ownership in the fund.
Base price is $1 per TaaS. But you can take advantage of the bonuses.

Here is the Bonus Structure-


As of 4 April, First two bonuses phases are over and currently, you will get a bonus of 20%.
Don't miss out these bonus phases. They provide an opportunity to early investors make more profit. For example if this ICO reaches 9000 Bitcoin investors, last investors won't get any bonus, so you have already made an unrealised profit of 20%.

Android Marshmallow Best Features


Android Pay

With the arrival of Apple Pay and Samsung Pay, Google is revamping its own mobile payment service it actually introduced back in 2010 with Android Gingerbread. Compatible with phones running on Android KitKat and above, Android Pay will let you walk into stores and tap on an NFC terminal to pay for products.
Compatible with any device featuring NFC capabilities (and running 4.4 KitKat or above), the Android Pay platform is being supported by American Express, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover, as well as carriers such as AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. Google's response to Apple Pay is here.

Charging And Battery

We all hate running out of battery. So, now Android Marshmallow has eased our pain by making use of a new function called 'Doze' to improve device standby time. By using detectors and sensors, Your phone will recognize when a device hasn’t been interacted with for a while, such as when a person is asleep or a phone has been left on a table, and will reduce background processes.
Its said that, Google has tested two Nexus 9 devices, one running Lollipop and one running the Android M preview, and learned that Android M will provide up to twice as much standby time. Even in Doze mode, though, Android can still start alarms or notify you of priority notifications.

App Permissions

As had previously been speculated, app permissions have been overhauled in Android M, and you can now choose to accept or deny individual permissions as you see fit. User will have the right to accept or deny the permissions given to the app.
"You don't have to agree to permissions that don't make sense to you," Burke said, and used WhatsApp to give an example of how this works. If you want to record a voice message, WhatsApp will prompt you with a one-time request for permission to use your mic: if you still wish to give it access and record the message, you can, but you don't have to. In this way, Android M is giving you greater control of the information apps can access, and this is a truly positive step forward for Android. 

Web Experience

Google has introduced a new concept of Custom tabs in Chrome in Android 6.0 which will provide you faster accessibility.
These Chrome Custom Tabs will allow apps to open a customized Chrome window on top of the active app, instead of launching the Chrome app separately. It has been said that  this will provide a faster and more intuitive user-experience when navigating between apps and the web. 


Expanded Memory

This is a great feature in Android. Adoptable Storage Devices is Google's new storage feature which essentially takes an external storage source,for example - sd card, and formats it like an internal storage space. This means that app can be installde don the sd card as well and personal data can be moved freely between a devices internal storage and its 'adopted' storage source.
Earlier only users had to root the devices to enjoy these benefits but now google has provided its solution to the users.
