Open

Anyone can choose to invest in the fund, and anyone can make investment decisions to win Kairo — Betoken's internal token that determines control over fund assets. All you need is an Ethereum account. There's no minimum investment, no need for invitations, and no wealth requirements. This allows Betoken to tap into capital and talent that traditional hedge funds can't utilize.

Meritocratic

Betoken allows anyone to make investment decisions for the fund and be rewarded for turning in profit. Individuals who make better decisions gain a bigger say in future investment decisions by winning Kairo tokens. More Kairo = More money you can manage.

Decentralized and Trustless

Betoken is a completely decentralized application running on the Ethereum blockchain. This means you don't have to trust us or anyone else in the fund, you only need to trust our code, which can be verified by anyone.

How Betoken Works?
Betoken uses a one-of-a-kind iMeritocracy (Incentivized Meritocracy) to make investment decisions.

Investment cycle starts

If you staked KRO and turned in profits, you’ll win more Kairo; if you lost the fund's money, you'll lose Kairo. More Kairo means more income and more control over investment decisions.

During the last 24h of each investment cycle, redeem your commission based on how much Kairo you have.
There is no obligation to make decisions. You can trust the community to decide for you on what to invest in.
Invest in Betoken by depositing ETH or ERC20 tokens to buy Betoken's shares, or burn your shares to redeem your money. This 24h phase is open at the beginning of each month to onboard new user.

You can influence the fund’s portfolio by staking Kairo tokens (KRO) - our control token - to buy & sell cryptoassets during a 27 days period.

The Kairo token

WHITE PAPER FORMAL ANALYSIS

The control over the fund's assets is denominated by Kairo tokens. During every investment cycle, each participant buys assets for the fund by staking Kairo proportional to the size of the purchase. (e.g. 'Stake 10 Kairo to buy 10 OMG tokens')

After they sell an asset they invested in for the fund, the staker wins Kairo tokens proportional to the ROI (return on investment), or lose Kairo if the ROI was negative.

Over time, the control over fund assets flows to the best investors, a win-win for both the performance of the fund as well as the managers. Moreover, a proportion of profits is distributed to Kairo token holders every month, providing additional value to the token.

Everything Runs on Smart Contracts

The entire Betoken fund is operated by a set of smart conrtracts on the Ethereum blockchain. Immutable and transparent code & parameters means you don't need to worry about hidden clauses, extra fees, or any other fishy business. We hide nothing from you.

Investment decisions are automatically carried out using Kyber Network, a decentralized exchange for ERC20 tokens. They don't charge any fees, a great plus for our investors. They operate solely on smart contracts as well, so the exchange process is also transparent.
