Coinvest will be a single destination for users to learn, invest, and spend cryptocurrencies. The Coinvest ecosystem (built by Coinvest LLC, the parent company of Coinvest Labs LLC's, together "Coinvest"), will consist of a wallet and investment trading platform to handle all of your cryptocurrency investment needs. The Coinvest trading platform will enable anyone to easily invest in hundreds of different cryptonized assets and indexes using only one wallet and one coin.
The Coinvest Labs investment process will be managed by smart contracts which will be the custodian of the network. User invested funds will be held by the smart contract until withdrawn by the user. Third-parties, including Coinvest, NEVER have access to invested funds, including the reserve pool that collateralize and back all investments traded in the network. Once an asset is sold from a user’s portfolio, COIN will be returned to a user's wallet and can be spent directly using our built-in debit card account.
Since the invention of blockchain technology, a new asset class has emerged in cryptocurrencies. Built on the blockchain technology, these digital currencies offer the promise of reinventing the real economy, as their decentralized nature, better security, and faster processing are vast improvements over traditional financial systems.
Unfortunately, these investment opportunities are largely limited to high net worth individuals and sophisticated investors. Ironically, this is contrary to the ideals of blockchain as a force for decentralization and democratization. For ordinary investors who want to invest in cryptocurrencies, they face issues such as complexity, fragmentation, lack of quality market intelligence, and security risks.
Coinvest Labs will be an open-source for-profit technology company dedicated to:
Frustrated with the complexity, fragmentation, and quality of cryptocurrency investment options available on the market, Coinvest Labs is determined to democratize cryptocurrencies by creating tools that will:
1. Create a virtual portfolio with your favorite cryptocurrencies
2. Trade and Withdraw Investments (+ Profit) Directly with our Smart Contract
3. Easily spend cryptocurrencies using your debit card account
Sample real-world use-case: Mary wants to invest in cryptocurrencies and purchase Bitcoin, NEO, and Raiblocks. With today’s solutions, Marty would have to:
With Coinvest Labs, Mary will be able to execute all of the above in one trade, for one fee ($4.99) and manage only one wallet. From there, spend COIN directly from their wallet without having to convert it back to fiat currencies (using our built-in debit card support).
The Coinvest Labs ecosystem of products and services will interact and complement each other to provide a comprehensive end-to-end investment experience for our consumers.
Details on our offerings are below:
At the core of its product portfolio is the Coinvest Labs protocol; A blockchain protocol defining investment transactions between users and the Coinvest Labs smart contracts. User invested funds will be held in smart contracts while investment data is written to the blockchain, removing all third-parties from the investment process. The COIN protocol will enable developers to build their own DAPP and become their own broker to help increase the adoption of COIN.
Coinvest Trade is a wallet and decentralized software application (DAPP), or front-end interface to the COIN protocol. The Coinvest DAPP will empower anyone to invest in individual or a curated index of cryptonized assets using only one wallet and one COIN. Users will create virtual portfolios and trade their favorite cryptocurrencies using market buy, limit buy, sell, and short orders.
