Introducing Velvet.Capital — Your Automated Crypto Portfolio!
Despite the initial goal of crypto to be “a purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash that would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution” (according to the Bitcoin whitepaper), we’ve been seeing crypto space becoming heavily centralized in the last several years with more than 99% of cryptocurrency transactions going through centralized exchanges.
In fact, our first solution — an automated top-30 crypto portfolio that outperformed Bitcoin — was centralized as well built in broker partnership with Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange.
As we believe in decentralized future and strive to free the world from intermediaries empowering direct & open interactions and true ownership & control over assets, we are building a DeFi solution to help people buy crypto indexes and portfolios “in one click” making it as simple as buying an S&P 500 or any other ETF in traditional finance.
While Decentralized Finance (DeFi) solutions are expanding they are far from mainstream adoption as users face three levels of complexity at once:
- They are overwhelmed with different options and don’t know which products and assets to choose from (especially given the variety of products with different yields)
- They are confused by the complexity of protocols and DeFi solutions and think that it’s too difficult to understand how they work, they struggle to even try
- They are struggling to navigate the solutions, which are tailored to tech enthusiasts and don’t have UI/UX intuitive for ordinary users
Velvet.Capital’s mission is to provide people with complete financial independence, free from intermediaries and centralized parties. The vision is to become the platform of choice for Decentralized Financial Services — an integrated seamless customer-centric DeFi ecosystem where users are able to:
- On-ramp: Buy & sell their crypto with any payment method in any country
- Transact: Store, exchange and send/receive their crypto
- Invest: Allocate funds into automated portfolios and crypto funds
- Earn: Lend out, stake and take advantage of yield farming solutions
- Borrow: Take a secured (crypto as a collateral) and potentially unsecured loans
Governance will be gradually decentralized creating a platform for future ecosystem growth ensuring that Velvet.Capital becomes a community-managed solution by introducing VelvetDAO, a governance token which will provide voting power to token-holders who stake their tokens with Velvet.Capital as well as ensure allocation of a part of the fees to the token-holders participating in the governance directly or via delegates.
To incentivize further development, each token holder will be entitled to submit a proposal (e.g., add a new integration with other DeFi protocols or create a new portfolio), and receive an allocation of tokens upon successful voting and implementation.
