Title: [ANN][ICO] HelloGold: Gold Backed Tokens from Live + Revenue Generating Business
Post by: Razaberry on July 18, 2017, 02:19:00 AM
Note: There have been a lot of token crowdsales lately that raised tens or hundreds of millions of dollars with little more than an alpha. We’re aiming to help start the first wave of responsible crowdsales, with a live & revenue-generating product that has thousands of users signed up in the few months since our public launch in April 2017.

HelloGold - Introduction

During the Asian Financial Crisis in the late 90s, Robin Lee (CEO of HelloGold) saw first-hand how “bad things can happen to good people” as domestic currencies were hit by extreme devaluation. People who had worked hard woke up to find the value of their savings slashed overnight, with a devastating impact on how they could provide for their families. The challenges of saving and protecting wealth today are no less daunting. Even in ‘normal’ times, cash savers have their wealth eroded via inflation.  

Those saving in gold are protected from fiat currency devaluation; those who hold gold over longer periods can make large profits, especially in local currencies declining against USD (in which gold is denominated globally). But only the wealthier and more sophisticated savers can buy gold in an affordable way, due to high mark-ups. The unfairness of the economics impacts those least able to fend for themselves.  

So HelloGold wants to democratise an invaluable savings product for the person in the street by digitising physical gold to a transaction size that is affordable to them.

To do this, Hellogold has built an app that allows millions of underserved, low-medium income people from emerging countries to conveniently save in gold instead of their unstable domestic currency, by drastically reducing mark-up prices.

Core Product

http://www.eddyazar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/image_2017-07-18_01-29-53.png

Founded in 2015, we have received traditional funding thus far. And after our public launch in April 2017, we’ve already got over 2000 registered users in Malaysia, and have collaborated with Aeon Credit Services (which gives us the potential to reach over 100mil people across Asia). We now plan to expand into other ASEAN countries like Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, plus China.

With the potential of reaching millions of customers, HelloGold is now working on integrating blockchain tech and Ethereum smart contracts into its backend, which will improve the product’s security and transparency while advancing the blockchain industry, with millions of (non-crypto) people using blockchain.

Current HelloGold System

HelloGold Incorporating Blockchain

http://www.eddyazar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/image_2017-07-18_01-32-22.png

Ultimately, Hellogold could be kickstarting the implementation of blockchain tech into hundreds of thousands of applications that are built for the everyday (non-crypto) people. In the future, this will provide mass market HG customers with a ‘soft’ entry into the crypto space by allowing them to convert gold held with HG into GBT at no cost.

As a supporter, what’s in it for me?

If you've not noticed by now, most of you guys don't fit the HelloGold core product’s target audience. That's because the app is not built for the crypto-niche. It's built for low to medium income people from emerging countries. This is one of the first crowdsales where you're investing in a project that you wouldn't personally plan to be a main user of.

Aside from its core goal, HelloGold will create a stable coin backed by the existing gold operations called GBT (Gold Backed Tokens). Each GBT is backed by 1 gram of 99.99% investment grade gold.

In order for HelloGold to expand into more markets and integrate blockchain tech, HelloGold Foundation (HGF) will raise funds via a crowdsale. Subject to a successful fundraise via crowdsale, it is envisaged that HGF will give HelloGold funds by way of grant(s) for HelloGold.

In turn, HelloGold will endow 10% of it's annual management fee revenue to the Foundation. This endowment will be converted into Gold Backed Tokens (GBT) in 1g increments.

1 GBT = 1g of 99.99% investment grade gold.

HGF will then decide on the distribution of GBT to HGT holders as a reward for supporting the crowdsale. Both HGT and GBT will be independently tradable on public exchanges. Once the system has been developed, GBT will also be available by opening a HelloGold account and converting gold balance to GBT or by purchasing GBT directly from HGF.

http://www.eddyazar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/image_2017-07-18_01-33-08.png


We're launching a 3-round crowdsale (with the 2nd and 3rd rounds scheduled for 2018 and 2019) for a live and revenue generating product, aiming to raise a capped $8mil USD each round - just as traditional companies have multiple funding rounds with VCs. The first round is divided into 5 tranches, has a pre-sale to avoid whales in the public sale, and has a KYC process which allows us to limit the amount of tokens that can be bought by each person to $50k/wallet.

300,000,000 (three hundred million) HGT will be sold in each Round. – i.e. a total of 900,000,000 (nine hundred million) HGT will be sold in all Rounds. For the avoidance of doubt, the remaining 100,000,000 (one hundred million) HGT will be Supplier HGT used by HGF to defray any and all costs and expenses arising out of or in connection with the three (3) Rounds of Crowdsale.

Round 1 will comprise the sale of five (5) tranches of 60,000,000 (60m) HGT, at prices that will be confirmed prior to launch of the Crowdsale due to current ETH price fluctuations.

All crowdsale info will be in English and have translations in Chinese.

Some FAQs


Why KYC? And what are the requirements for KYC?
HGT will not be available for citizens, green card holders or tax residents of USA and Singapore due to securities regulation, and to implement good faith efforts to avoid money laundering, HGF will be implementing a KYC/AML process for crowdsale purchases of HGT. You will need to provide:

  • Name as per passport
  • Date of Birth
  • Photo of passport biodata page
  • Selfie holding passport with biodata page open
  • Document with residential address
  • Your wallet Ethereum address

Apart from this, the KYC process will allow us to create a $50k/wallet cap to prevent whales from monopolizing the public sale.

Aren’t you guys just like Digix?

While Digix and HelloGold share some similarities, they’ve got some key differences. We’ve covered this in an article here: https://medium.com/hellogold/hellogold-digix-whats-the-difference-fe633f2b69d8

The live app is available in Android and IOS but only in Malaysia at the moment.

The Demo App should be available worldwide but is only available in Android.

Though it's one of those gold-backed projects, it seems that this is already in progress.
But the supply is so huge that the team can generate so much money from this.
Buying and selling gold is really bit complicated from what it seems.

Unfortunately, no bounty or advertisement! We've been against seeing scammy and paid writeups since the beginning. We've been listed on SmithandCrown, ICOage and CoinGecko.

As for GoldMint, Digix, Orocrypt and all other blockchain efforts that digitize and democratise gold, our answer is that the total value of “above ground” gold stock is approximately $7.5trillion, of which the largest gold fund in the world (SPDR GLD) accounts for only $30billion worth of gold (0.4% of the total). Our five year goal is to reach $6billion of gold AUM. As you can see from these numbers, the gold market is absolutely massive and there is room for literally tens of businesses to succeed. In this market, competition between all these businesses is a good thing as it keeps everyone focused on serving customers well.

Each has their own target audience, fee structure and unique structure of running their business.

Our primary target market is the Asian mass market, which is unique to us.

There are companies running their business from Singapore, Singapore is a safe heaven for projects related to Gold, China does not like to lose their currency or gold to digital currency.

I will invest in companies based in Singapore they are the safest.

Our token sale is based in Singapore. We have received legal advise that our sale remains compliant with Singapore securities laws. We had partnered with ICOage to resell our pre-sale tokens to the Chinese market. After the China ban was announced, we provided full support for ICOage to refund all who had participated in their token reselling. Subsequently, we have made changes to our Round 1 token sale covered in this announcement: https://www.hellogold.org/announcement.html

Thanks for the wish! HGF are asking supporters to complete registration through a Know-Your-Customer (KYC) process prior to providing funds to HGF for 3 reasons:
1. In line with financial services best practices, HGF are looking to verify supporters' identity to prevent financial fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing
2. US & Singapore citizens, green card holders, permanent residents, and tax residents are excluded from the Token Sale due to securities regulation
3. As gold backed tokens (GBT) will be convertible to gold within a HelloGold account (from which fiat and physical gold will be accessible), HGF are putting processes in place to ease the transition from crypto to physical or fiat

Quote
HelloGold Foundation has announced that it is putting up for sale 170 million HelloGold tokens that were previously pre-sold and returned by ICOage. This is due to the announcement by the People’s Bank of China and HelloGold Foundation’s commitment to comply with all regulations.

You may track the amounts sent by supporters on our token sale website: https://www.hellogold.org/. We have made it clear that the token sale address will only be shown to users who have been approved and logged in to our KYC website. In this way it is much harder for scammers to fool our supporters. We are hesitant to share the multisig address currently as there have been cases where supporters mistake it for the token sale address and waste their ETH by sending it there.

HelloGold Foundation has announced that it is putting up for sale 170 million HelloGold tokens that were previously pre-sold and returned by ICOage. This is due to the announcement by the People’s Bank of China and HelloGold Foundation’s commitment to comply with all regulations.

We are reselling the tokens that were returned to us by ICOage due to the recent announcement by regulators in China.

We have not conducted bounty campaigns as we don't believe that kind of marketing is healthy for us or our supporters in the long-term. Hope this helps!

Mixing Gold and Cryptocurrency may be risked cause in one hand you have a legal trading product that is the gold and in the other hand we have the cryptocurrency. But since the project is Singapore based and dev is talking to the lawyers I think this won't be a problem.

Smith and Crown is the gold standard in my personal belief. They wrote about us here: https://www.smithandcrown.com/sale/hellogold-token-sale-tokenized-gold-savings/
We've also recently been featured on News BTC: http://www.newsbtc.com/2017/10/02/interview-robin-lee-ceo-hellogold/
... and Crypto Insider: https://cryptoinsider.com/hellogold-a-look-into-asset-backed-crypto/


Mixing Gold and Cryptocurrency may be risked cause in one hand you have a legal trading product that is the gold and in the other hand we have the cryptocurrency. But since the project is Singapore based and dev is talking to the lawyers I think this won't be a problem.

We have a running gold business with the gold vaulted in Singapore. As the product (mobile app) is only available to Malaysians currently, you may check out the demo app by downloading the Android APK here: https://www.hellogold.org/code-review.html.

One of our key strengths is the background of the management team. In this case our CEO, Robin's experience as CFO of the World Gold Council definitely helps in structuring a gold product that complies with all the relevant laws.

Please clarify one question for clarity.  As I understand you will exchange GBT (supported by 1 gram of gold) for HGT tokens, in the ratio of 1GBT to 1 HGT?  It's right ?  Where exactly will you take the money, that would turn all 1 000 000 000 HGT tokens into 1,000 tons of gold and how long will it take for you?

yep, we are policing the Slack channel regularly, but the phishers have figured a way to set reminders so that their messages get sent even after they have been removed. we're looking to migrate to another community app soon!

The HelloGold Foundation will provide rewards (at its discretion) of GBT to each HGT holder based on 10% of HelloGold's management fees up to a max of 3.8 million grams of gold. It may also provide rewards based on other asset-backed tokens that HelloGold creates in the future.

Could you please extend the limit of the Slack channel? I need an invite.

Also:

Why will the GBT be tradeable on public exchanges? .. I mean, if I buy gold from HelloGold in the form of GBT and have it on my app, then it is secured and HelloGold will have their 2% management fee on my holdings (which is also the profit maker for HGT). But if GBT on exchanges, who is paying the 2% management fees?

Thank you!

Thanks for the nice writeup! Just a note - it seems to only show up to Step 6 by default. I had to click skip the step on Coinbase to see Step 7.

HelloGold did the right thing by not offering bounties, and hopefully have a good marketing campaign.

Thanks for the kind words. We didn't want people to 'shill' about what we're doing instead of giving critical analysis. we were very glad to have the smith and crown team review our project as they provide quality, independent due diligence analysis.

We are ramping up marketing of the project! If you happen to know the crypto community in your city, feel free to reach out to us. Robin our CEO is currently on a roadshow covering Hong Kong, London, and Dubai to meet with interested parties and discussing business deals for HelloGold.

You can currently buy HGT on Ether Delta: https://etherdelta.com/#HGT-ETH and COSS: https://exchange.coss.io/pair/hgt-eth. we are working on listing HGT on other exchanges - if you could introduce us to some reputable ones that would be great!

Our invite link to Slack is: https://hellogold-foundation-slack.herokuapp.com/. Can you not register using that link?

The app is open only to those who are in the markets our business is in as we will need boots on the ground to do KYC registrations and customer service for the mass market user. We plan to be in Malaysia, Thailand, China, Indonesia, and the Philippines in 2019. For those not in these markets, they can convert crypto/fiat at exchanges worldwide (where exchanges will conduct the KYC) and use those to buy GBT from anywhere in the world, opening up access to anyone. Of course as a startup there may be changes to how we do things depending on how things go!

GBT has been designed in a way that the management fee gets deducted from your wallet automatically. So if you got 100 GBT at start of the year, you will have slightly more than 98 GBT (not 98 GBT exactly - long story - tl;dr is that there's a reverse compounding effect).

Interesting project.
Will keep an eye on it. Still some days for ICO to hit the market.

We've already completed our Token Sale actually! You can get your HGT from Ether Delta or COSS, and with more exchanges to come =)

Yep, we have strongly advocated for Token Sale projects to donate their tokens to some of these initiatives who work wonders for the community. We were finally able to send to them after the dust had settled down on the Token Sale work. Please encourage other Token Sale projects to do so too!

Why is Blockchain technology needed for buying Gold? What benefits does it provide to the consumer?

HelloGold uses blockchain technology to provide 3 benefits:

Transparency

By publishing the smart contracts and incorporating a blockchain explorer (transaction navigator), it will be possible to review the full list of anonymised transactions and calculate the amount of gold that HelloGold is holding on behalf of customers. This, in turn, can be compared not only to the amount of gold published in the customer gold list (anonymised) but also against the records managed by our custodian.

Security

HelloGold has incorporated several security mechanisms to protect customer accounts. All connections are encrypted using HTTPS. Internal API calls between the core components are secured with additional secret keys and firewall rules that limit interactions between trusted systems. For external facing APIs, for example APIs used by our mobile application, the API calls are further secured with a combination of industry standard OAUTH and secure tokens for each mobile device. The addition of a distributed record adds a further level of security from internal and external attempts to alter account data without leaving an audit trail. The smart contracts are being developed with best practices in mind following constant review of public audit documents. This should ensure that customer accounts are true and accurate.

Access

In addition, the Ethereum smart contracts enable HelloGold to create GBT, tradeable on any exchange which accepts them.With HGF’s gold-backed token everyone will only need the equivalent of a fraction of a dollar to save through gold (GBT works to 18dp). This will make the HelloGold platform available to everyone anywhere in the world

Thanks for the reply, was wondering why GBT had such a low CAP, unfortunately it seems your incorporation of blockchain tech is fairly superfluous.

Third party gold models are all only as strong/trustworthy as the auditing & with a KYC requirement to just trade GBT there is no USP over long established, trusted market leaders like Goldmoney who offer registered/allocated, audited gold in multiple safe haven jurisdictions & also accept Crypto.

Good luck though
