AXU (Argentas Exchange Unit)
Token pre-distribution started & ongoing

ICO 3rd quarter 2018 – dates to be announced later






Pre-distribution hard cap 100,000,000 AXU Tokens
(corresponds to 40,000,000 XLM at the fixed rate of 0.4 XLM for 1 AXU – 1 AXU is ca. USD 0.11)

XLM-compatible AXU Tokens are verified and listed on stellarport.io decentralized exchange



-----   *   *   *   -----

Incumbent banks and central banks will not change the world.
We will. While the incumbents focus on maintaining and defending
their power, we focus on helping to build a new open global financial
system that is accessible to all.


Argentas introduces the new Architecture of Money (AOM)
AOM helps to transform global banking, payments and other financial services,
migrate such activities into blockchain ecosystem, and generate entirely new
economic and financial activity in the crypto-driven economic system.



AOM decentralizes banking and finance, and eventually banks and
bank accounts as we know will disappear into the blockchain.

The future is now.


A 2nd generation financial blockchain platform
As a powerful second generation blockchain project, Argentas helps to build new
open global financial system. The Argentas ecosystem, based on its new
Architecture of Money, will be formed around its core HydraNet blockchain,
network interfaces and bridge entities, and an eventual decentralized
application platform focusing on global financial applications.
Argentas has the potential to become the decentralized blockchain
application platform and ecosystem for global finance.






-----   *   *   *   -----

Banks and bank accounts will disappear
Global finance will 'go crypto', and there is no way back:

(1) Bank accounts and banks as we know them will disappear and morph into
blockchain network interfaces – blockchain will record transactions and hold ‘account balances’.
(2) Bank services will become dapps
, decentralized applications. (3) Enabled by the distributed
ledger technologies (DLT), first time ever, truly global, instant and virtually free payments
are possible. (4)
DLTs have first time ever made possible to create a truly global open
financial architecture and system
– without any central authority or control.

No one has so far created a ‘perfect’ solution to make this all happen:
This is the perfect opportunity ahead.

-----   *   *   *   -----


(1) Backed by strong financial services and technology (Fintech)
experience and expertise in building and launching real life business grade Fintech
platforms and operating businesses
, the Argentas team has a realistic project
that creates a powerful second generation blockchain platform to transition
global payments and ‘centralized’ banking into the decentralized world of blockchain
.
 
(2) The project is not only to create the right kind of blockchain platform and
native cryptocurrency, but an ecosystem also covering the interfaces, bridge entities
and dapps
to facilitate smooth movement and transition between traditional
and crypto economies, migrating and creating real business activity, boosting
the growth of the crypto economy.


(3) The project is not “proof-of-concept” but focuses on helping to build sustainable
real value-adding economic activities, and growing the new decentralized economy
.
 
(4) Argentas decentralizes banking and payments and gives financial power back
to the people
.

(5) The network will become the ‘de-central bank of crypto’,
which will generate immense value to its users in terms of money, time and effort saved
and new crypto economic and financial activity created.

(6) Global finance will be made democratic: universal access will be
given to all
, and the bank will truly be in the pocket of every user, enabling true
financial inclusion.


-----   *   *   *   -----

The space we are in is enormous, potentially covering the business of traditional
banks, payment firms, payment card schemes (Visa, MC, Amex etc.), financial messaging
networks (Swift)
and other financial services providers.
The total global market cap of banks (largest ones ca. USD 400 billion) is into tens of trillions of dollars,
leading card schemes more than a trillion, and e.g. SWIFT processes trillions of dollars worth payments
every day. These amounts tell something about the value of this space of tens of trillions of dollars
we are disrupting, and migrating and growing the activity into new crypto ecosystems with
enormous value-added
.

Most financial transactions will be digital and decentralized, and Argentas is well positioned
to capture this vast creation of new value
.


-----   *   *   *   -----

Some of the key requirements for such 2nd gen blockchain in order to be successful are the following,
leveraging our substantial Fintech experience in building and operating streamlined and
most modern enterprise grade financial platforms:


(1) Speed (low latency): Fast transaction confirmation times of 2-5 seconds (base case), w/objective
instant (sub-second)


(2) Transaction throughput (scalability): Targeting at least 50-60 thousand transactions
per second (e.g. the global volume of Visa), but research on “lightning network” (no viable commercial
application exists yet) as secondary payment channel and/or powerful primary layer solutions to enable
up to millions of transactions per second


(3) No mining: Consensus-based transaction validation (based on a fault-tolerant variation of ‘Byzantine Generals’ Agreement), no proof-of work (PoW) /proof-of-stake (PoS),
consumes much less computing power, much more environmentally friendly


(4) Low transaction cost: Lack of mining consumes much less computing power,
causing much less network congestion and capacity problems, which enables much lower costs


(5) Decentralized control, transparency and flexible trust: Anyone free to access
and participate the network and choose who to trust – anyone equal, enabling complete financial inclusion


(6) Safety and security: The security should not only rest on “normal” digital
signatures and hash families
(base case) but eventually be quantum resistant (for which more research is needed)


(7) Smart sharding: Research on the possibility not to replicate the whole ledger entirely
(as in base case) but portion it across the network through “smart sharding”, lowering network load
& increasing overall capacity


(8 ) Easy, convenient, intuitive user interfaces: User interfaces – e.g. the native the wallet,
are simple and easy to use, intuitively facilitating buy, sell, store and
transfer of value and
use of any available app.


-----   *   *   *   -----

Our thinking is that in order to be successful, we do not only need core
blockchain protocol, but an entire new synergistic ecosystem
that facilitates the
migration of true economic activity between the traditional economy and the
cryptoeconomy, and the creation of entirely new kind of economic activity
in the crypto sphere.

The Argentas Ecosystem (“AE”) will have three principal dimensions that will create
automatic internal synergies, reinforcing it and increasing its value-added through
every additional piece of economic activity or transaction
:

(1) HydraNet – the Argentas-developed protocol and blockchain (including its all is components)

(2) HydraNet interfaces / bridge entities such as native wallets, exchanges, banks and other
actors interfacing with HydraNet


(3) HydraNet dApps – further decentralized applications (dapps) that leverage the power of
HydraNet for economic activity


Given the fast-evolving nature of the cryptocurrency sphere and the underlying technologies,
 the structure and components of the AE are likely to evolve accordingly.


The AE has been conceived so that every dimension will support and the strengthen the network
and the ecosystem itself, so the growth of any dimension – the number of network nodes, the volume
of transactions (in its native assets or otherwise), the number and type of network bridges and
 interfaces, and the number and type of other dapps (e.g. wallets are also dapps) –
will boost the position and value of the network, all components being mutually
synergistic to benefit the ecosystem as a whole
, potentially creating the
leading blockchain ecosystem for global finance.


-----   *   *   *   -----

The development of the ecosystem is divided in two major phases:

Phase 1: Development and implementation of (i) the HydraNet protocol and blockchain,
and (ii) its key interfaces & bridges
i.e. wallet (native), exchange (native) and banks
(non-native connecting through APIs) or similar, because the network use, when interfaced
with the “rest of the world” will significantly increase through the bridge entities compared
to the singular use of its native digital asset / cryptocurrency for transactions,
when not interfaced. In order to facilitate the transition between the ‘old’ and ‘new’ systems
towards the ‘post-banking’ era in the new global financial system, Argentas may or may
not partner with, invest in, hold, acquire, set up or dispose various network bridge entities
such banking units, while the fulfilment of its strategic objectives is independent of such units.

Phase 2: Development of further dapps & wider ecosystem  – the further dapps, which
may also interface with the other network key user interfaces such as wallets, exchanges
and banks, will focus on financial activities that boost general economic activity, crypto and
traditional, and provide value-adding services that could be ones like decentralized lending
that will be inherently supported by HydraNet structure. Dapp development and interfacing
will be open to all, and it will be the intention of Argentas to support the development and
integration of interfaces, bridge entities and dapps in the AE through venture funding
or similar initiatives, depending on the resources available.


-----   *   *   *   -----

 Why a bank entity adds value for a network that will render banks useless?

Even if banks and bank accounts will eventually disappear,
as of today, they can interface with and act as important bridges between
the crypto economy and the traditional economy, holding balances
of fiat money and other non-crypto assets
that are issued as
network credit.


Recent bad treatment of crypto users by traditional banks,
blocking access to their payment, card and other services, makes it
urgent to have crypto friendly banks available.


A bank entity can act as a laboratory
for the transition from closed-ledger “centralized” banks to the DLT
 “decentralized” crypto banking
, and dapps replacing banking
services
on the network, eventually making the network the bank.


Such model bank(s) would run an entirely digital online
platform leveraging machine learning / artificial intelligence and minimize
human intervention.

Mission

Argentas as a project was formed to fulfill its mission of

Vision

The objective of Argentas is to evolve into the leading blockchain ecosystem for global finance.


-----   *   *   *   -----



Argentas offers its community – the early believers, fans and supporters
– an early opportunity to currently participate, in preferred terms, in the private pre-distribution of the Stellar
XLM compatible AXU (Argentas Exchange Unit) Token through its website – just click “Get AXU” and follow simple & easy instructions.

There are also articles on Medium to explain the easy & quick steps to acquire AXU Tokens as well as to how to buy some XLM and set up your wallet if you don’t yet have any.

The AXU Tokens are also listed and verified on the StellarPort decentralized exchange
and can be acquired and traded (independently of Argentas) through the exchange.

 
A public token distribution at higher rates will take place later during the third quarter of the year.
The price per token at the ICO phase may be twice the level in this pre-distribution.

We will be later on adding more information of the team, but there is some on the About us page of the website - we have a very strong set of Fintech - both finance and technology background in creating real financial businesses from scratch, leveraging proprietary technology, and maybe even too much underlying substance experience in finance. You can also watch some of the youtube videos and also read the primer on the website as well as the white paper that explains some of our thinking, as well as the Medium articles (link on the website) or medium.com/argentas. Re hard and soft cap of this pre-distribution phase, we aim directly at the hard cap of 100M tokens (which currently corresponds to ca. 11-12 MUSD), but the soft vs. hard cap thing it is not so critical for this pre-distribution phase, where the exact numbers of tokens distributed are, because now we will be focusing on the community buildup, prioritising the community, and there will be a much larger ICO phase later on at higher rates (total token supply is fixed at 1B), and we believe it will gain a lot of interest, when people get to know more widely, what the project is all about, around our complete architecture for a 2nd generation cryptocurrency in its own blockchain ecosystem decentralising global banking and finance. Re distribution our approach is philosophically a bit similar to what one of the biggest projects did in terms of the time period, allowing a long distribution period: we wanted to start quietly and let the community build up, get the token at beneficial terms rather than rush into a very strict time window, when people then complain that they didn't get any, but we will prioritise the community and let them have some tokens first (that is why we prefer to set the hard cap in terms of tokens rather than a strict time limit, but give time for the community to build up instead), and then we will do the big round as the next step. It will be powerful. The new video gives a good glimpse of our project: see the video.

I wish you success and I will be looking for information on how your platform works. I still do not have it so clear as to make a comment with the property that deserves it, since I only participate in its launch campaign from the air. It is excellent! I will be attentive to its development.
