ALPHA PROTOCOL
Empowering the protocol-based commonwealth of Cryptocurrency Quantitative Trading Community



Quantitative researchers develop alpha strategies to generate excess return regardless of the market moves. Alpha protocol is an agreement between the alpha token holders and the quant community such that the token holders delegate the quant community to use the digital asset pool to generate excess return and then share the profit. The protocol optimize the allocation of resources and fairly distribute the profit.



Project website (with whitepaper): https://alphaprotocol.com/




Abstract

The cryptocurrency (hereinafter called “crypto” interchangeably) industry is thriving. The total market capitalization has been steadily rising and the prospects are exciting. As a young industry, the market is yet to be understood by most people. The prices of cryptos have exhibited huge volatilities and the market has encountered an endless stream of anomalies. Some cryptos are blockbusters with hundredfold or even thousandfold growth; while some others have been sluggish, with their prices gradually approaching zero. Meanwhile, asset prices in mature financial markets such as US equity market have been steadily rising since 2017 with declining volatilities.

High volatility is an enemy to individual investors but a friend to hedge funds. The high volatility of crypto market and the growing number of participants will for sure attract more and more hedge funds into this new arena. Alpha protocol ( α protocol ) is created to address the growing needs in this playing field.
   
Alpha protocol is an agreement between hedge funds and investors. It connects two communities: the community of long-term cryptocurrency investors (herein after called “crypto investors” or “investors”) and the community of carefully chosen quantitative strategy developers (hereinafter called “quant strategists” or “strategists”). The crypto investors have digital assets, which are sitting idle and create demand for their secondary utilization and steady growth; while quant strategists have the demand for the use of cryptos. By connecting these two communities, alpha protocol addresses both of these demands.

The alpha protocol does not set new rules for the market, but provides a tool for resource sharing. It is committed to becoming a bridge between quant strategists and crypto investors. ALP (Alpha Protocol token), which is the token facilitating the implementation of alpha protocol, is committed to becoming a digital currency with steady growth. This white paper gives a detailed introduction to the protocol.



Map of Alpha Community: A decentralized community bonded together by Alpha Protocol





Community Map Guide

  • One becomes an ALP Holder through initial crowdfunding or periodic offering from Strategic Pool, or one could purchase ALP on the secondary market. ALP Holders could exit the community any time by selling ALP on the secondary market.
  • ALP holders could entrust ALP to Alpha Producers. These entrusted ALPs could not be transferred or traded on secondary market. In other words, entrusted ALPs are locked up.
  • An Alpha Producer uses the entrusted ALPs to transfer digital assets from the Alpha Pool to certified exchange account to execute quantitative strategies. The cap of  value of digital assets one could transfer is proportional to the number of entrusted ALPs.  After the execution, the Alpha Producer gets a cut of profit earned and return the rest of the profit to Alpha Pool along with the borrowed asset. In this process, the system automatically calculates the statistics such as balance and return, and stores these info in the blockchain. The net value info are encrypted and only visible to ALP Holders who entrusted their ALPs to this Alpha Producer.
  • To borrow the allocated asset, the Alpha Producer needs to deposit certain number of ALPs as collateral. The amount of collateral determines the maximal loss allowed for this Alpha Producer when executing the quant strategy.
  • The influence between ALP Holders and Alpha Producers goes both ways. On the one hand, the borrowing limit of Alpha Producers is determined by how many ALPs are entrusted to them by ALP Holders. On the other hand, after each period, the entrusted ALPs will be redistributed among ALP holders, in such a way that the ALP holders who voted for Alpha Producers with good performance (detailed definition of “good” will be given in Section 3.3) will get more ALPs. ALP holders who did not participate in the voting will not be awarded or punished.
  • Alpha Pool will use the profit earned to buy back and destroy ALPs from the secondary market periodically. This is to maintain the deflation of ALP, and thus reward all ALP Holders in the Alpha Community. The buyback plan consists of two stages. In the first stage when the Alpha Protocol blockchain is still under development, the buyback will be carried out by the Alpha Protocol Foundation. In the second stage, the profit for each trading period will be written into the smart contract, and the buyback will be executed algorithmically over long period of time. In particular, the buyback algorithm will be tied with market price move, such that whenever there is a sudden drop in ALP price, the buyback amount will be increased so as to alleviate the volatility of ALP.
  • The Strategic Pool will periodically release ALPs to future community members. The released ALPs shall not be priced lower than 105% of the average market price of ALP in the most recent week. Future community members are voted in by current ALP Holders. The number of ALPs released decreases by 50% each year. This helps to expand the community, and to absorb more digital assets into the Alpha Pool.
  • Certified external institutions can also entrust their assets to the Alpha Community. They will be charged management fee in the form of ALPs, which will be added to the Strategic Pool. They do not have voting rights similar to that of ALP Holders. The profit earned using external institution’s assets will be used to buy back ALPs from secondary market and the ALPs bought back will be distributed to them as Alpha Protocol is implemented through decentralized blockchain technologies. Before the development of the blockchain is completed, the Alpha Protocol Foundation will manage the operations of the Alpha Pool.

Thanks wavespump. The hard cap is 32k ETHs.  Private sale should be done, but I am not sure if there is some leftover. Contact @will0696 on telegram for more information.
