Title: [ANN] Astronaut (ASTRO) Token Sale. One Token To Rule Them All.
Post by: K- on September 17, 2017, 12:15:01 PM

Today we present Astronaut (ASTRO)
WEBSITE (http://www.astronaut.capital) | WHITEPAPER (https://astronaut.docsend.com/view/p4iazfu)

Astronaut is an innovative new ICO which seeks to close the inefficiencies of prospective investors filtering, researching and ultimately investing in ICOs.

In short, Astronaut allows you to invest in one token, which in turn gives you ownership to the best, verified, and researched backed ICOs every month.

Quick brief
Astronaut’s tokens (ASTRO) provides two kinds of returns to its users:

1) Token appreciation aligned with the Net Asset Value (NAV) of the fund; and

2) Quarterly income distributions based on the investment and exit activity of Astronaut

Astronaut will be the first to establish such a platform in the crypto community, offering efficiency and flexibility, whilst also giving investors the desired exposure to the crypto asset class without any of the ongoing transactional pain points.


Where did Astronaut come from?
Astronaut is a creation based on the needs and wants of our subscribers at Picolo Research http://www.picoloresearch.com

Astronaut owns and operates Picolo Research, a top tier research firm specialising in institutional grade research for new Initial Coin Offerings. Picolo is independent and does not receive remuneration for its recommendations.

Following a series of interviews and feedback from our 10,000+ subscribers, we were confronted with the inefficiencies that every-day people experience when trying to gain exposure to the right ICOs at the right time.
It was at this moment that Astronaut was born.


What makes Astronaut a good token?
Utilising our internal research team at Picolo Research, we have a track record of providing investors with real opportunities that are focused on growth and capital return.

Feel free to browse our recommendations and track record by visiting http://www.picoloresearch.com

Over 10,000 crypto investors currently rely on us to perform detailed due diligence and uncover the best opportunities for capital gain.

What is our performance like?
Astronaut focuses on growth opportunities that are prime for capital gain. Our mandate is geared towards investment that has a significant chance of a liquidity event (exit) within 1-6 months of capital injection.

Over the last quarter, Astronaut has completed public due diligence reports on twelve new Initial Coin Offerings which have satisfied its filtering and market-scanning process. Out of the twelve ICO due diligence reports, four of them have been disregarded as ‘Avoid’ based on further analysis.

Of the eight investments that we have deployed capital in over the last quarter, two of them have listed on major exchanges and are available for public trading. The remaining six are all scheduled to commence trading in the coming months, however they are also currently listed on secondary markets and available to trade over-the-counter (OTC).

How does Astronaut choose what to invest in?
Astronaut takes a methodical approach to investment utilizing its experience within the private equity markets and small-cap (pink sheets) sectors.

With our experience in analysing concept stage and pre-revenue startups, the team bases their research analysis off several fundamental and technical factors such as:

• Management and team track record

• Structure of the token

• Capital spent to date

• Anticipated capital to be raised

• Use of proceeds raised

• Current intellectual property

• History of development

• History of commercialization

• Commercial viability of the project

• Professionalism and credibility of the organization

• Market demand and anticipated liquidity

• Company structures and incorporation

Our analysts utilize a number of algorithms and API feeds to screen and shortlist all upcoming ICOs. From this point forward, our shortlist is examined, researched and calculated using a scoring system developed internally.

How does the Token Sale work of ASTRO?
Astronaut believes that the power of the tokens lies with their holders, which will continue to provide the demand, support and liquidity within the ecosystem. In light of this, all tokens, bar a small percentage, will be offered to the market, with the remainder used as an incentive for the Investment Committee (IC) who are actively researching and executing the opportunities.

There will be 30,000,000 tokens issued as a one-off. After this time, there will be no more tokens issued.

https://preview.ibb.co/cxOjOk/DQmev_Cc_DEz_Vv_S3_V8zah_Tb_J3x_Sn_Yue_J3_YLpz_D47_Hw_Rr_Ghd_CL_1680x8400.png

Leftover tokens will be burned

Any tokens that are not sold through the crowd sale or allocated as per above will be burned. In this instance, ICO investors will receive a lower entry price proportional to the amount of tokens remaining.

Operating costs and development of portfolio infrastructure

As Astronaut is a close-ended fund structure, it will be subject to certain operating costs for the life of the token. In light of this, there will be a small allocation of funds to be used over time to pay for operating expenses, investment analysts and the completion of its Astronaut Portfolio Tracker apps and auditing tools.

92% of funds will be deployed strictly into investment to achieve token holder income and capital growth
8% of funds will be utilised for ongoing operating costs (auditing, legal, terminals) including the completion of our portfolio tools for token holders. This portion from the initial sale is budgeted to last for the life of the token.
*2% additional management fee will apply per annum for the ongoing administration of the Astronaut platform (this will only come into effect after the initial 12 months to assist with any extra operating costs)

How does the Token Sale work of ASTRO?
As part of the Astronaut income strategy, holders of the token are entitled to receive quarterly dividends based on the performance of realised investments over that period.

The breakup of the distribution is as follows:

50% of ‘realised’ profits via Astronaut investment activities will be credited back to the token holder in ETH on a quarterly basis
40% of the profit will be reinvested into Astronaut, therefore expanding assets under management (AUM) and appreciating the token price of ASTRO
10% of the profit each quarter will be used to fund the ongoing operation of Astronaut and its investment activities (legal, auditing, analysis)

https://preview.ibb.co/jxkEOk/DQm_VGNAk_TN6mwj_Wzq1n3inb_D65_RMWKi2_LBpu8c_Bi_Lj_Lp_DHT.png

Exchange tradable Astro Tokens
Astronaut will be issuing ASTRO Tokens (ASTRO) to its token holders after the initial coin offering. Our expectation is that ASTRO will be tradable on the exchange within six weeks of issue. Investment will begin as soon as the ICO has completed in order to get ahead of the market.

Based on performance of our previous investment efforts, recommendations, market comparisons and outlook in the short term, we anticipate significant growth and appreciation of ASTRO stating November 2017.

The Astronaut Portfolio Tracker
Astronaut is developing an intuitive and detailed portfolio tracking system, allowing investors to quickly gain transparency of the Assets Under Management (AUM), transactions and dividend periods at the push of a button.

The application will be the knowledge base for investors seeking to gain an understanding of potential investment decisions that Astronaut will be making.
https://preview.ibb.co/buH8G5/DQm_RZVmu_CD1ru_Zu_A8_Yi8r_Mm3_Tgecth_V2_DQ2u_GWt_B4axn_QMo.png

Upcoming dividend notifier

The application alerts investors of the details regarding quarterly dividend distribution including the amount, yield, highest/lowest performers and the expected date of receipt.

Daily and weekly AUM balancing

While the Astro Tokens will be traded publicly, the Astronaut Portfolio Tracker will calculate AUM on a periodic basis to determine the true underlying value of each Astro token. While there may be a small pricing disparity due to outside factors (either higher or lower in the public market), this AUM calculation will give a true indication of token value.

Research and analysis

The application allows investors to access the underlying research and investment methodology that was used in the process of each transaction. This research is conducted by our internal team at Picolo Research. Investors will be notified each time there is a new report, commentary or analysis uploaded on the application.

Transaction notifier

When Astronaut places a new transaction, alerts are sent to the investor through the Portfolio Tracker. This will also detail the exposure that is set as a (%) of the overall AUM.

Auditing & security

Astronaut is focused on providing our token holders with the right tools and platforms to evaluate transactions, portfolio performance, liquidity levels and dividends on demand. We believe trust can only come in the form of complete transparency in the decentralised ecosystem.

Exchange selection which satisfies Proof of Solvency

Astronaut is committed to only using exchanges that can satisfy the Proof of Solvency test (PoS) .

This ensures specific liquidity and reserve fund requirements that give piece of mind to investors and institutions dealing with exchange platforms. To date, there is a select number of exchanges on our approved list such as Kraken and Poloniex.

Open API for viewing and account auditing

Astronaut will establish viewer access APIs to provide the highest degree of transparency regarding fund allocation, holdings and current investments.

Holders of the token will have access to a real-time view of every investment, in every exchange on demand.

Fiat account transparency

As a certain portion of funds remain in fiat for liquidity reserves, Astronaut will be implementing a viewer access portal linked direct to the bank API for on-demand access to fiat balances and incoming/outgoing transactions.

Not sure about how ICO market will grow from here and the fund needs to prove its performance in both good time and bad time but anyway, what a nice coin name, take the investor to the moon :). Hope the project will deliver its promise.

Well, yes. Most of them. Not all though. There are some languages that are definitely worth whoring out. It's about turning profits people! Customers may come from anywhere but investors around the globe ALL SPEAK ENGLISH! Don't waste your time and revenue, keep to the languages that have potential.

Like Dutch!

Hello guys from Astronaut. I read about your project, and I liked it. I do not have the opportunity to invest, but I would like to take part in the bounty. But I understand that you do not plan to hold a bounty company?  :(

As it is in presale mode, we will likely issue bounty of ASTRO out of the Investor Committee proceeds to assist with the sale of the full ICO. The team will be releasing details shortly. Hang tight.

Post by: SlowClimberCEE on September 20, 2017, 02:14:09 PM
It looks like a really cool project. Liked their review work through Picolo. The team was quite responsive on Reddit (waiting on an email about their ICO guide book). Love the fact there are no bounties for people to just shill it. If at the end they feel like someone contributed in a meaningful way they can tip

I can't understand the tight schedule though:
- this tread is 3 days old
- I got the email form Picolo about Astronaut just yesterday

If we look at the timeline it will be all over by 5th October (phase 4 fundraising). It doesn't have time to build momentum. This seems like a good thing for us as investors (unsold tokens will be burned, leaving more room for token appreciation), but seems like its not optimal for the team, as there are certainly economies of scale for small funds (team confirmed running cost is fixed % of raised funds)


Title: Re: [ANN] Astronaut (ASTRO) Token Sale. One Token To Rule Them All.
Post by: Shadolance on September 20, 2017, 05:22:02 PM
Well, this looked interesting at first. But their schedule is really rushed combined with a very high cap. So I got curious - like this no one is going to know about it fast enough to provide enough interested investors - and no due dilligence report can come out before that juicy Presale period is over.

So what do I think? Most important - the team.

6 people to manage 30 million. Ok.

1st of them (the commander) has 2 articles he's written as a reference + a twitter link that does not work.
2nd of them has only their parent company (which hasn't been active for too long) as reference.
3rd of them has a twitter and a linked in page. Neither Astronaut nor Picolo research is mentioned anywhere there.
4th one has one linked in page - again Picolo/Astronaut nowhere to be mentioned
5th one again only picolo as reference
6th one finally a twitter account that actually mentions astronaut. And a FB account that has limited access.

Welp.

The concept can be as interesting as it wants. You are not going to get me to invest in this when the team is split in

a) no real reference
b) loaded with so many projects that they don't even bother to mention this one on there profiles

Also, wthe "commander" has written 2 articles on 2 different sites in his lifetime and his only other reference is a twitter link that doesn't work. If that is the most well documented team member.

Well then reading that whitepaper was a waste of time. You guys can do this without me.

Peace and out.

(Edit: I mean come on, I can write to articles on medium, then go ahead and collect 30 million from people or what? I'm sure I'd be making a positive ROI with your investment too in this market.)

Thanks for the comments.

A few things:

Astronaut is an evolution by the team at Picolo Research. The team has actively been moulding this Token Sale based on the feedback and contribution of the 10,000+ subscribers there.

We have avoided bounty campaigns to date, instead trying to focus on the value offering of the platform.

The dates you see on the whitepaper are anticipated based on the demand from the prospective market. It may seem rushed on this forum, however we have been actively gaining feedback on Astronaut for over 3 months now.

Some other questions highlighted:

30,000,000 cap

The cap is simply there to show our maximum goal. All remaining tokens will be burned.

Picolo Research and Astronaut

Picolo Research has been operating for over 12 months in the token space doing private consulting before turning into a public facing research house.  Astronaut many months ago was created based on the feedback from the subscribers. The majority of personnel in the team (and others not mentioned being more operational) have come from Picolo Research.

Thanks See Jack.

Keeping in mind that we also have a number of operational staff. What we have listed thus far are the integral members. In managing a platform such as this and a 'close-ended' structure, it means that there is no requirement for marketing, ongoing development etc.

When it comes down to it, it is a smaller component of technology mixed with analysts and operational staff.

Post by: aznbro88 on September 22, 2017, 09:17:28 AM
I'm curious about a few things and I'm hoping the Astro rep will be able to answer.

1. Will the total investment be based on the amount raised in the crowdsale? It goes without saying that the more invested the bigger the potential profits for dividends so if only a small amount is invested then the dividends may not be that significant and hence not worth the investment. That being said is there a minimum goal you're going for? I realize it may be difficult, but is it also possible to give an estimate of projected range on the return per coin in different scenarios (i.e. fund does very well, fund does ok, fund does poorly)? Even if you just used fake placeholder numbers, it would allow people to see what kind of benefit they'd be getting based on their investment.  

2. I believe on the reasons exchanges like Bittrex haven't added anything in over a month is because of the SEC ruling on securities and since this seems to be a security as well, are there any safeguards to ensure it doesn't change over time. I was looking to invest in ETHBET which is basically the same as ETHROLL, both of which pay dividends from the gambling profits of the platform, but prior to the crowdsale ETHBET completely dropped the dividends portion so it makes the coin much less attractive. I believe in the ASTRO whitepaper it was stated that it will be added to Poloniex shortly after the crowdsale finishes so is there any sort of deal in the works with that since it seems very difficult to get added to anything other than Etherdelta and HitBtc these days and it will affect the coin's value tremendously.

3. I'm a big fan of the reports written by Piccolo research as they are well thought out and logically sound, but I do wonder if coins rated under "spec buy" will be invested in. I'm assuming the fund will stay clear of "avoid" and I think it's safe to say ones with "buy" ratings will be including, but almost all of the coins are given "spec buy" which has seen mixed results. For instance, Trueflip is one of the coins rated "spec buy" but it is currently about 20% under ICO price and Dao.Casino is also another spec buy coin that hasn't been performing too well either. If the fund is filled with most "spec buy" coins then I feel like it will hamper success seeing as spec buy is almost akin to 50/50 in regards to success. In contrast, the only coin under buy, 0x, went 10x until it settled down to around 4x (Chainlink, the other buy coin is too new to judge) so whether the fund will be mainly comprised of coins rated under "buy" or "spec" will make a huge difference.

4. This might be written in the whitepaper and I missed it, but is the strategy of the fund to buy at ICO and then hold and cash out at a certain multiplier (i.e. 5x or 10x), or just hold indefinitely, or flip for the short term. I saw something about short term and long term investments but I wasn't able to find any specifics on when the value from investing in the coin would be realized. For example, if the fund bought DNT at ICO, when would the profits from DNT be allocated to the fund because at one point it was 10x, but it has fallen down to 3x, so depending on the date when you sold or realized profits there a discrepancy which would greatly affect the dividends.    

Thanks.

Post by: picoloresearch on September 22, 2017, 09:53:06 AM
Thanks for the questions:

1. Expected return and size

Total investment will depends on the amount raised for the crowdsale. For example, if the end amount raised is closer to $15m, position sizing operating costs and everything will be scaled down almost proportionally. The rest of the tokens are burned. Our expectation is to outperform the market significantly. If you look at the returns of some other listed vehicles such as TaaS, market cap has almost tripled in that time with decent performance. Based on our analysis of market return and previous strategy, we are aiming for high ROI even in the first quarter. As you said, the more raised the better.

2. Dividends and exchange

We are currently also looking at a process for DRP, as some token holders are expressing their want to reinvest the total amount. This is understandable and we are hoping to come up with a flexible solution. The listing on exchanges is actually a technical barrier to do with dividend distribution as well. We are currently finalising discussions with a number of exchanges and hoping to release an announcement this week. It is simply a matter of which are the most flexible for ETH contributions to be made every quarter.

3.  Picolo and Spec Buy

Great question.  Spec Buy represents a lower exposure opportunity where conviction isnt 100%, however the rewards outweigh the risks for a short/medium term buy. Simply put, this affects position sizing and length of 'hold.' Astronaut holders will find that the reports released after the token sale (exclusive to them) will be quite a bit different, specifically noting the rationale behind the amount of funds placed, sizing and detailed stop loss.

4. Investment strategy

This is a question we could answer in about 15 pages :)  Ultimately it comes down to the following:

a) protecting risk. when a position pops in the market and significant capital gains are had, we implement a Stop Loss strategy to cash out of any existing risk therefore making it a free trade. This protects downside risk and keep long exposure.

b) continuing to scale out of volatile tokens (if short term). This comes down to raising stop loss and exit points as we see market sentiment turn adn volatility increase (or volume decrease)

c) position on the token. The above really depends on whether or not a long or short term view is made (which token holders will be advised). High conviction buys will generally be a longer term opportunity that we forecast significant +1000% growth. This means a different risk and holding strategy. The short term component employs a more active approach.

I hope this answers some of your questions - if it hasn't just let me know :)

Title: Re: [ANN] Astronaut (ASTRO) Token Sale. One Token To Rule Them All.
Post by: wancho on September 24, 2017, 08:59:21 AM
Thanks for the questions:

1. Expected return and size

Total investment will depends on the amount raised for the crowdsale. For example, if the end amount raised is closer to $15m, position sizing operating costs and everything will be scaled down almost proportionally. The rest of the tokens are burned. Our expectation is to outperform the market significantly. If you look at the returns of some other listed vehicles such as TaaS, market cap has almost tripled in that time with decent performance. Based on our analysis of market return and previous strategy, we are aiming for high ROI even in the first quarter. As you said, the more raised the better.

2. Dividends and exchange

We are currently also looking at a process for DRP, as some token holders are expressing their want to reinvest the total amount. This is understandable and we are hoping to come up with a flexible solution. The listing on exchanges is actually a technical barrier to do with dividend distribution as well. We are currently finalising discussions with a number of exchanges and hoping to release an announcement this week. It is simply a matter of which are the most flexible for ETH contributions to be made every quarter.

3.  Picolo and Spec Buy

Great question.  Spec Buy represents a lower exposure opportunity where conviction isnt 100%, however the rewards outweigh the risks for a short/medium term buy. Simply put, this affects position sizing and length of 'hold.' Astronaut holders will find that the reports released after the token sale (exclusive to them) will be quite a bit different, specifically noting the rationale behind the amount of funds placed, sizing and detailed stop loss.

4. Investment strategy

This is a question we could answer in about 15 pages :)  Ultimately it comes down to the following:

a) protecting risk. when a position pops in the market and significant capital gains are had, we implement a Stop Loss strategy to cash out of any existing risk therefore making it a free trade. This protects downside risk and keep long exposure.

b) continuing to scale out of volatile tokens (if short term). This comes down to raising stop loss and exit points as we see market sentiment turn adn volatility increase (or volume decrease)

c) position on the token. The above really depends on whether or not a long or short term view is made (which token holders will be advised). High conviction buys will generally be a longer term opportunity that we forecast significant +1000% growth. This means a different risk and holding strategy. The short term component employs a more active approach.

I hope this answers some of your questions - if it hasn't just let me know :)



that's it, nice dev :)

I stumbled on this, having some investment knowledge on the open market I understand the value of good information to investors, if I understand this coin's vision is to supply this information to those that is willing to pay for it.

This, good information, is priceless. - That is my understanding, I'm I correct?

I'll appreciate good information from the forum. (lol)

May all your future investments exceed your wildest dreams.

Hi to clarify a few things:

Q: if I understand this coin's vision is to supply this information to those that is willing to pay for it.

A: Token holders actually gain ownership to a basket of ICOs that Astronaut invests in. This is not simply tokens for research and information. It is tokens for direct exposure in the ICOs (backed by research)

--

Q: Telegram Group
A: We are opening a Telegram Group momentarily. We have just approved a list of moderators.

--

Q: Bounty Programs
A: We are formulating a small bounty program and will be releasing details of this in coming days.

--

Q: Alpha version
A: We are releasing invites for UX testing of the Alpha web Portal. We are setting up a platform for feedback on this.

--

Q: Exchanges
A: We haven't signed a contract with an exchange as yet so have not released any details. We will release details on this once everything is locked in

How does it work exactly?

Let's say I have 1000 tokens.

You are investing in 2 ICOs in the next month.

What percentage of my tokens will participate in each of those upcoming ICOs?

Or is it like this that I see what ICOs are coming through a watchlist you going to generate and I can decide on my own how much of my coins I will put into each ICO?

Hi

We have detailed an allocation of exposure. Effectively, the large majority goes to ICOs with the remainder in altcoins, crypto and fiat.

If you have 1000 tokens, they are pooled with everyone elses. That ownership will give you xx% right to the performance of the investments. You receive a 50% dividend every quarter followed by the remaining being reinvested into Astronaut.

We anticipated there will be between 2-3 ICOs a month that we participate in. The exposure will vary depending on the total amount raised.

Remaining tokens are burned.

Coin Remix just independently analyzed Picolo Research recommendations since inception. Please note that the analysis is assuming a buy and 'HODL' which is not the case in reality. There have been certain positions cut early to minimise risk and positions exited much higher than the analysis would suggest (DNT)

Perhaps a bigger bounty campaign might be of help? I think that at least a signature campaign would be beneficial.

They said they wanted to avoid a lot of bounties which I can understand why due to too many freeloaders... But they should consider a small amount of bounties.

Bounties get the word out much faster than the project leaders can. And it's not too late to add some smaller bounties. I'd love to help spread the word.

Agree that bounties help also reviews positive or negative as the main thing is putting it in front of people. I did them a video here :- https://youtu.be/Fs6tjfsin18
for no bounty as it may simplify investment into ICO's for some people.

I can understand both sides. Sounds like they don't want to cheapen their brand with excessive bounties. But I also understand the usefulness of some bounties when done right


Title: Re: [ANN] Astronaut (ASTRO) Token Sale. One Token To Rule Them All.
Post by: picoloresearch on October 24, 2017, 02:05:55 AM
Thanks for your comments.

Astronaut has been somewhat 'under the radar' with the vast majority of our participants coming from our own research team at Picolo Research.

While we acknowledge that bounties such as signature campaigns can do extremely well, we wanted to do things a bit more organically and attract certain types of investors.

Our ICO is not 'hyped', nor do we want it to be given the current state of the market with 'pump and dump' issues occuring around listing.

Bounties work well for token sales that need to gather a substantial userbase after launching a product. Astronaut does not quite fit into this category. The types of investors into the token sale we are looking for are in it for the long term. Our concern was that a heavy bounty approach may cause large amounts of investors to contribute that may not really understand what we are offering, or are looking to 'head for the door' as soon as possible.

In saying this, we could be proved wrong and time will certainly tell.

Many thanks for your comments all.

You should withdraw it first in orderbook.io and move it to your MEW wallet.
Should be plenty of time before the dividends are distributed.

P.S. There is a 2 ASTRO fee for moving the tokens so don't be surprised.

don't want to ruin the party but was just enough to buy the top 5 coins 1 month ago and hold till now to do 100% or even more

Let's see how this goes. Airdrop for around 31. December confirmed with about 50% of your token holdings. 100 Astro after Airdrop 150 Astro. Furthermore, the quarterly dividends will be paid. Everything which has to be done is to hold your ERC20 Astro Tokens in your own wallet before 26. December. (https://medium.com/astronaut-capital/dividend-airdrop-instructions-fb7a8936e69b).

I read the problems during the ICO and I think they have learned their lesson. It will be very interesting if the price stays here for the next two days or some fomo kicks in.

Yes, the project is interesting but the administration does not answer not one question, we write ourselves looking for an answer. I understand after a successful ico all are very busy with other matters, then instruct someone to moderate it.

They are pretty responsive on their telegram

Do you have a link for the telegram channel? I haven't found it here anywhere.

Confirmed: around $0.41 dividend per token.
Already received both my dividend and airdrop earlier today

Yeah, which is about more than 10% of the token value. In their report, they said they didn't liquidate any assets because they still haven't got enough market exposure. If they perform like that once again, I couldn't care less about the market price of the token. But I am sure, there will be more buy pressure if they perform well again and pay even more.

Good work Astro, keep it up!

Isn't it obvious? Because it isn't shilled. People are more interested in anything which suggests quick gains. They did amazing and it was just the first quarter. I guess it will rise again to the next payout date. In every other sphere, people would jump in circles if they get over 10% in a quarter.

I am surprised at just how little this project is known, I only stumbled across it by accident while looking for some POS coins.  This is a proper legitimate professional setup, very excited to be part of this and the longer it is on small exchanges the more time there is for us to pick up cheap ASTRO, once it gets to the large ones and gets back on CMC you can be sure demand will be huge.

Today we present Astronaut (ASTRO)
WEBSITE (http://www.astronaut.capital) | WHITEPAPER (https://astronaut.docsend.com/view/p4iazfu)

Astronaut is an innovative new ICO which seeks to close the inefficiencies of prospective investors filtering, researching and ultimately investing in ICOs.

In short, Astronaut allows you to invest in one token, which in turn gives you ownership to the best, verified, and researched backed ICOs every month.

Quick brief
Astronaut’s tokens (ASTRO) provides two kinds of returns to its users:

1) Token appreciation aligned with the Net Asset Value (NAV) of the fund; and

2) Quarterly income distributions based on the investment and exit activity of Astronaut

Astronaut will be the first to establish such a platform in the crypto community, offering efficiency and flexibility, whilst also giving investors the desired exposure to the crypto asset class without any of the ongoing transactional pain points.


Where did Astronaut come from?
Astronaut is a creation based on the needs and wants of our subscribers at Picolo Research http://www.picoloresearch.com

Astronaut owns and operates Picolo Research, a top tier research firm specialising in institutional grade research for new Initial Coin Offerings. Picolo is independent and does not receive remuneration for its recommendations.

Following a series of interviews and feedback from our 10,000+ subscribers, we were confronted with the inefficiencies that every-day people experience when trying to gain exposure to the right ICOs at the right time.
It was at this moment that Astronaut was born.


What makes Astronaut a good token?
Utilising our internal research team at Picolo Research, we have a track record of providing investors with real opportunities that are focused on growth and capital return.

Feel free to browse our recommendations and track record by visiting http://www.picoloresearch.com

Over 10,000 crypto investors currently rely on us to perform detailed due diligence and uncover the best opportunities for capital gain.

What is our performance like?
Astronaut focuses on growth opportunities that are prime for capital gain. Our mandate is geared towards investment that has a significant chance of a liquidity event (exit) within 1-6 months of capital injection.

Over the last quarter, Astronaut has completed public due diligence reports on twelve new Initial Coin Offerings which have satisfied its filtering and market-scanning process. Out of the twelve ICO due diligence reports, four of them have been disregarded as ‘Avoid’ based on further analysis.

Of the eight investments that we have deployed capital in over the last quarter, two of them have listed on major exchanges and are available for public trading. The remaining six are all scheduled to commence trading in the coming months, however they are also currently listed on secondary markets and available to trade over-the-counter (OTC).

https://preview.ibb.co/i3TUpQ/DQmctys_SXYMa_HK6_GWv_Mb_Er_CR4s_ZUq4_E9_ZPpjq6_To_Zw91_Nqp.png

How does Astronaut choose what to invest in?
Astronaut takes a methodical approach to investment utilizing its experience within the private equity markets and small-cap (pink sheets) sectors.

With our experience in analysing concept stage and pre-revenue startups, the team bases their research analysis off several fundamental and technical factors such as:

• Management and team track record

• Structure of the token

• Capital spent to date

• Anticipated capital to be raised

• Use of proceeds raised

• Current intellectual property

• History of development

• History of commercialization

• Commercial viability of the project

• Professionalism and credibility of the organization

• Market demand and anticipated liquidity

• Company structures and incorporation

Our analysts utilize a number of algorithms and API feeds to screen and shortlist all upcoming ICOs. From this point forward, our shortlist is examined, researched and calculated using a scoring system developed internally.

How does the Token Sale work of ASTRO?
Astronaut believes that the power of the tokens lies with their holders, which will continue to provide the demand, support and liquidity within the ecosystem. In light of this, all tokens, bar a small percentage, will be offered to the market, with the remainder used as an incentive for the Investment Committee (IC) who are actively researching and executing the opportunities.

There will be 30,000,000 tokens issued as a one-off. After this time, there will be no more tokens issued.

https://preview.ibb.co/cxOjOk/DQmev_Cc_DEz_Vv_S3_V8zah_Tb_J3x_Sn_Yue_J3_YLpz_D47_Hw_Rr_Ghd_CL_1680x8400.png

Leftover tokens will be burned

Any tokens that are not sold through the crowd sale or allocated as per above will be burned. In this instance, ICO investors will receive a lower entry price proportional to the amount of tokens remaining.

Operating costs and development of portfolio infrastructure

As Astronaut is a close-ended fund structure, it will be subject to certain operating costs for the life of the token. In light of this, there will be a small allocation of funds to be used over time to pay for operating expenses, investment analysts and the completion of its Astronaut Portfolio Tracker apps and auditing tools.

92% of funds will be deployed strictly into investment to achieve token holder income and capital growth
8% of funds will be utilised for ongoing operating costs (auditing, legal, terminals) including the completion of our portfolio tools for token holders. This portion from the initial sale is budgeted to last for the life of the token.
*2% additional management fee will apply per annum for the ongoing administration of the Astronaut platform (this will only come into effect after the initial 12 months to assist with any extra operating costs)

How does the Token Sale work of ASTRO?
As part of the Astronaut income strategy, holders of the token are entitled to receive quarterly dividends based on the performance of realised investments over that period.

The breakup of the distribution is as follows:

50% of ‘realised’ profits via Astronaut investment activities will be credited back to the token holder in ETH on a quarterly basis
40% of the profit will be reinvested into Astronaut, therefore expanding assets under management (AUM) and appreciating the token price of ASTRO
10% of the profit each quarter will be used to fund the ongoing operation of Astronaut and its investment activities (legal, auditing, analysis)

https://preview.ibb.co/jxkEOk/DQm_VGNAk_TN6mwj_Wzq1n3inb_D65_RMWKi2_LBpu8c_Bi_Lj_Lp_DHT.png

Exchange tradable Astro Tokens
Astronaut will be issuing ASTRO Tokens (ASTRO) to its token holders after the initial coin offering. Our expectation is that ASTRO will be tradable on the exchange within six weeks of issue. Investment will begin as soon as the ICO has completed in order to get ahead of the market.

Based on performance of our previous investment efforts, recommendations, market comparisons and outlook in the short term, we anticipate significant growth and appreciation of ASTRO stating November 2017.

The Astronaut Portfolio Tracker
Astronaut is developing an intuitive and detailed portfolio tracking system, allowing investors to quickly gain transparency of the Assets Under Management (AUM), transactions and dividend periods at the push of a button.

The application will be the knowledge base for investors seeking to gain an understanding of potential investment decisions that Astronaut will be making.
https://preview.ibb.co/buH8G5/DQm_RZVmu_CD1ru_Zu_A8_Yi8r_Mm3_Tgecth_V2_DQ2u_GWt_B4axn_QMo.png

Upcoming dividend notifier

The application alerts investors of the details regarding quarterly dividend distribution including the amount, yield, highest/lowest performers and the expected date of receipt.

Daily and weekly AUM balancing

While the Astro Tokens will be traded publicly, the Astronaut Portfolio Tracker will calculate AUM on a periodic basis to determine the true underlying value of each Astro token. While there may be a small pricing disparity due to outside factors (either higher or lower in the public market), this AUM calculation will give a true indication of token value.

Research and analysis

The application allows investors to access the underlying research and investment methodology that was used in the process of each transaction. This research is conducted by our internal team at Picolo Research. Investors will be notified each time there is a new report, commentary or analysis uploaded on the application.

Transaction notifier

When Astronaut places a new transaction, alerts are sent to the investor through the Portfolio Tracker. This will also detail the exposure that is set as a (%) of the overall AUM.

Auditing & security

Astronaut is focused on providing our token holders with the right tools and platforms to evaluate transactions, portfolio performance, liquidity levels and dividends on demand. We believe trust can only come in the form of complete transparency in the decentralised ecosystem.

Exchange selection which satisfies Proof of Solvency

Astronaut is committed to only using exchanges that can satisfy the Proof of Solvency test (PoS) .

This ensures specific liquidity and reserve fund requirements that give piece of mind to investors and institutions dealing with exchange platforms. To date, there is a select number of exchanges on our approved list such as Kraken and Poloniex.

Open API for viewing and account auditing

Astronaut will establish viewer access APIs to provide the highest degree of transparency regarding fund allocation, holdings and current investments.

Holders of the token will have access to a real-time view of every investment, in every exchange on demand.

Fiat account transparency

As a certain portion of funds remain in fiat for liquidity reserves, Astronaut will be implementing a viewer access portal linked direct to the bank API for on-demand access to fiat balances and incoming/outgoing transactions.
