The Problem

Fund Management

  • So called “expert” fund managers can invest the funds into other projects for personal gain without care for the fund's growth.
  • Difficult to be expert in an industry which is only a few years old and extremely unpredictable.
  • By keeping the investment centralized by a few fund managers, investors are likely to take a "wait and watch” approach instead of actively participating in the fund’s investment decisions which further limits the avenues in which the fund can invest into.

Fund Diversification

  • Due to limited time and information overload, it is difficult for investors to smartly diversify their crypto-holdings and hedge their risk.
  • Even after spending hours daily to follow the crypto-market and choosing the right instruments, participation in the most lucrative projects is not guaranteed for an individual investor due to high minimum investment requirements.

MISINFORMED ICO INVESTMENTS

  • Tons of ICOs are launching all the time and many fail to deliver returns to investors when compared to even just holding the investment in ETH or BTC.
  • Even in the cases where the ICO project is solid, it could make sense to skip the ICO entirely and directly purchase the tokens once it is listed on an exchange.

SAFETY OF FUNDS

  • Holding funds with exchanges that can vanish overnight is a big problem. Some examples of exchanges getting hacked or vanishing overnight include the likes of Bithumb, Mt.Gox, and recently Btc-e.
  • Even when funds are kept outside of exchanges, there is a big risk of smart contract exploits or stealing of access keys to wallets or even those of cold storages.

BAF Solution

BAF_Checkmark

Fund Management

BAF is the first hedge fund of its kind which allows for a truly decentralized voting on new investments by BAF token holders and gives their choice 50% of the overall weight towards the investment decision. The other 50% is allocated to the choice made by our fund managers. Further, we enlarge the investment funnel by tapping into the combined knowledge of the BAF token holder community to find, analyze, and invest into promising new projects.

Fund Diversification

By design, and with the scale of funds available, BAF invests into a diversified portfolio of cryptocurrencies, digital assets, blockchain start-ups, and optimized mining operations which allows BAF token holders to automagically diversify their holdings across all aspects of the cryptoworld.

Misinformed ICO Investments

Before even voting can commence for a potential investment into a new ICO, our team will share all pros and cons of the token including its expected true market value and this info will be shared only with our closed group of BAF token holders. This will set the basis for a healthy discussion to take place within our closed community to allow BAF token holders to make an informed choice during the voting phase.

Safety of Funds

BAF will never hold its funds on any exchange and will instead hold all crypto-assets into an escrow smart contract holding the private key of our cold storage wallets. Escrow smart contract will use oracle to access  non-ethereum tokens like Bitcoin, Litecoin etc.

Fundraiser Details

BAF Fundraiser will happen in Q1 2018. Pre-fundraiser phase (with bonus payouts) has already begun and as of October 2017, close to USD 2 Million have already been raised. All unsold BAF tokens will be burned with the completion of the fundraiser and no additional tokens will ever be issued again. Further, and in order to reassure our early participants, we have set a point of no return – 5 Million BAF Tokens. If by the end of the fundraiser we did not manage to sell this threshold amount of BAF tokens, all participants will be fully refunded.

Fundraiser Use of Proceeds

50% of the funds collected will be invested into cryptocurrencies, digital assets, in-house blockchain based projects, and highly optimized cryptocurrency mining. The other 50% are invested into aggressively growing the token value which is an industry-first and with which we expect to grow BAF’s value linearly with time.

Safety of Funds

PROOF OF RESERVE

BAF is the most transparent cryptofund where anyone can independently verify the entire holdings of BAF via blockchain as proof of reserve.

TRUE DE-CENTRALIZATION

BAF is designed from the ground up to be a fully de-centralized entity (similar to Bitcoin) and this prevents the organization or funds to be seized by any third party.

CROWDSOURCED CODE-CHECK

Every piece of code governing how BAF functions is available publicly and we keep a portion of the funds aside to provide bounties to the community to continually help maintain code integrity of the highest standards.

COLD STORAGE

Whenever not in use for investment, funds are stored in cold wallets based on the Ledger Nano S platform. Also, no single wallet will ever hold more than 5% of the fund's net asset value or USD 1 Million (whichever lower) at all times.
