Reporter: pencil boxn

HelloGold is a gold-based financial services platform based on block-chain technology, which relies on Ethernet contracts to achieve gold spot trading, savings, mortgages and other forms of liquidity. HelloGold project will issue two kinds of assets – the two kinds of assets – the GGT, where GBT is the gold anchored asset, mainly used to realize the cash spot flow; HGT is the ICO sale tokens, corresponding HelloGold from the platform transaction fee, (GBT form) of the distribution of rights, does not represent any assets.n
n1) Industry situationn
nAt present, the gold endorsement encryption token has been ZenGold and Digix Global, which is famous, the development is better Digix Global, and HelloGold from the functional point of view is Digix Global upgraded version, because in accordance with the white paper plan, Gold trading and savings outside of the financial function: gold mortgage. From the technical level and development progress point of view, Hello Gold is undoubtedly the fastest, has released a beta version of the Andrews and IOS procedures, block chain and mobile wallet support is also expected in the third quarter of 17 to complete. Business model and the corresponding tokens Ecology, HelloGold and Digix Global similar, are through the purchase of tokens to obtain gold trading / storage fee. But HelloGold’s market positioning is more accurate and effective, HelloGold advocates Pratt u0026 Whitney Finance, for the emerging markets such as Malaysia, they can afford to provide financial products, while HelloGold is the world’s first through the Islamic law certified figures Gold plan, and in full compliance with AAOIFI standards for savings and financing.n
nAt present, the demand for gold trading industry is relatively stable, the market size and demand may be due to the convenience of the escrow transaction has increased, the transaction may also be transferred, so the industry as a whole is relatively stable prospects.n
nIndustry is currently relatively difficult to compete in the field of chain projects, and the project is in the forefront of development, but there are still traditional gold trading is also constantly occupy the market share. Therefore, the industry rating of 7.5 points.n
n2) business modeln
nHello Gold platform (GBT) docking with financial institutions, access to B2B services, pay the cost, to obtain part of the cost. For ordinary users based on the block chain of B2C gold financial services, and charge fees, management feesn
nDonate 2% of the management fee in the form of gold to the Foundation, the Foundation converts it into GBT, and decides whether and how to allocate these GBTs. Opponents and other HGT holders share the likely allocation of GBT.n
nHello Gold’s business model is divided into two blocks, one of which is a GBT-based gold financial service platform that collects users through a variety of services such as providing currency exchange, trading, savings, and mortgages Fees and charges to form Hello Gold’s profits, and 10% of the monthly management fee will be donated to the HGF (Hello Gold Foundation) in the form of physical gold, the Foundation will convert these entities into the corresponding GBT gold; the other One is a HGT-based Foundation creditor’s rights certificate, which can be assigned to the GBT donated to the Foundation by the HGT, which is formulated by the HGF.n

nIt is noteworthy that the chain is recorded in the gold trading IOU, and the real deal of gold transactions need to chain the support of the text agreement, can not be fully automated. In addition, HelloGold’s financial services are provided by a number of financial institutions, and the stable operation of platform services also depends on the good cooperation between the project and other financial institutions. The project founding team has already made great efforts in this respect. Spend a lot of experience to maintain and expand the relationship with external financial services, or through other means or economic mechanisms to improve the problem. Second, the form of funding for management fees is more dependent on transaction fees than the number of users using the platform and their gold savings, so the project’s marketing capabilities and the final market size will Determine the proceeds from the coin investor.n
nThis business model is closer to Digix, but the increase in the gold mortgage service is an extension of the financial services, with a certain degree of innovation. I believe that this business model may be derived in the future as a decentralized bank, to achieve the stability of digital assets savings, lending, exchange and other functions.n
nBased on the above analysis, the business model 7 points to the evaluation.n
