"EQUI is a blockchain powered ecosystem that connects the traditional venture capital, real estate, and luxury asset markets with cryptocurrency proponents and investors. While these investors remain highly engaged in the emerging cryptocurrency space, they are typically outsiders in the traditional markets reserved for institutional and high net worth individuals. This has led to a mass divergence where newly acquired capital is remaining within crypto but is failing to be diversified to outside sectors. While cryptocurrency remains a high profit potential market, it is not nearly as stable or developed as other opportunities that would make up a well-balanced portfolio. EQUI looks to be the bridge and give the cryptocurrency community an access point to these markets that have been stable and provided strong returns to successful professional investors for decades.
Led by Doug, Michelle, and the seasoned investment team at the Knox group of companies, EQUI will source high-caliber investment opportunities in real estate, real world assets and next generation technology companies. EQUI will champion innovators and support them by providing extensive business knowledge, guidance and insight to enable their ventures to flourish.
On launch, EQUI participants will own EQUI Tokens that can be traded on exchanges akin to any other cryptocurrency. The ICO will enable the development of our EQUI platform, which will showcase investment opportunities. ICO contributions will be used to bootstrap the development and coding of the platform and ecosystem. Additionally, funds will be used for the due diligence of initial projects used to populate the ecosystem. EQUI Token holders will have the option to transfer their tokens to the EQUI platform to gain access to rewards, educational materials and utility features. They may also become accredited within the ecosystem, allowing them to then exchange their EQUI Tokens to EQUIVest, a native 1-to-1 fiat-pegged token that is used to actually invest directly into the projects and opportunities showcased on EQUI platform.
EQUI seeks to reward participants who share our vision, offering 80% net returns to those who invest their tokens in the underlying investment opportunities showcased on EQUI platform. Additionally participants who do not choose to invest in projects directly, may still benefit through a loyalty-based rewards program, which issues bonus tokens to those that hold tokens within our ecosystem. Profits will be realized in EQUIVest on completion of a project, and those tokens can either be re-diversified to new projects or can be exchanged to EQUI Token. EQUI Token can either be held on our platform to benefit from rewards programs or can be transferred off our system to be traded on popular exchanges. This means that as returns are generated within our ecosystem and converted back from EQUIVest to EQUI Token, the overall value of EQUI Tokens themselves will increase due to the limited supply and greater market value of the EQUI Tokens in circulation.
Established and led by a team of successful entrepreneurs, EQUI will provide a portal for the investment world to support the innovators of tomorrow to realize their business ambitions and make their mark on the future. Through access to our community, these projects will benefit from our community being able to back test and beta test new solutions and provide valuable user feedback to make their coming to market successful. Furthermore, our community will provide a large potential user base for their projects, that can help spread the word and populate their customer base organically.
Profit Share through the EQUI Platform will be split 80% and 20% respectively between investors and the EQUI platform’s stakeholders. However, the EQUI Capital team has decided to designate 3% of the total profit from each project to charitable causes, meaning the 80:20 split will be net of this charitable donations. We believe those who are less fortunate and unable to participate should be given EQUI-Opportunity as well.
