Zichain (ZCN) ICO Review – ICO Token News
Zichain takes a leading role in creating a cryptocurrency asset management industry for private and institutional investors, combining best practices of the traditional financial world with innovative technologies. We are developing an ecosystem comprised of several key products: a platform for starting and managing investment funds, news and market data provider, index funds based on a family of our cryptocurrency indexes, crypto-fiat exchange, and a marketplace for financial services.
Blockchain Asset Management Platform
Currently, there are dozens of investment funds operating in the cryptocurrency industry, whose infrastructure cannot be called reliable and whose asset management process cannot be viewed as transparent. Even though this industry is in early stage of its development, several large thefts of investors’ funds have already occurred. Due to most of the funds working outside the legal framework, state institutions around the world are recognizing the need for a systematic approach to the regulation of the cryptocurrency market. Sooner or later the market players and asset managers will require transforming their businesses in order to minimize their risk exposure, and particularly – the counterparty risks.
BAMP is a platform that foresees this future requirement and provides a ready technical solution for creating and managing investment funds. It also offers all the necessary tools to monitor the status of investors’ portfolios, whilst meeting all the conventional standards of classical financial market.
Passive strategies can outperform actively managed strategies in the long term, especially if the investor is striving for low volatility and a stable income. One of the varieties of passive strategies is investing in index products that track the dynamics of a broad market or its individual sectors. The most convenient way to invest in a broad market is ETF (Exchange Traded Funds). Over the past 20 years, they have become one of the most popular tools for both institutional and individual investors. ETFs currently contains over $4.5 trillion of assets worldwide.
Despite the fact that the ETF industry has grown by 1,000% over the past 13 years, it is still quite insignificant compared to the mutual funds industry, which grew by only 150% over the same period. The volume of assets under management in ETF is now only one-tenth of the assets of mutual funds.

We will provide retail and institutional investors with an exclusively legal and transparent solution for conversion of fiat money to crypto-assets. Our main input to the market will be a combination of accepted operational standards of the traditional financial industry and the values that drive blockchain technology development such as simplicity, convenience, and security. ZiChange will eliminate obstacles which institutional and retail investors meet when they venture into the world of crypto-assets. There will be two types of exchange services:
- Fiat-to-crypto (and crypto-to-fiat) exchange services. The company will provide legal and secure entrance to the cryptocurrency market. All deals will comply with regulatory requirements.
- Crypto-to-crypto exchange services. The company will give access to a wide range of crypto-assets within one liquid platform.
Our exchange infrastructure will give investors the opportunity to direct long-term investments into the cryptocurrency market. A duly performed KYC/AML will allow clients to convert any digital asset to fiat currency and to use funds legally. At the beginning, we will only work with counterparties located in EU and CIS, and later we plan to expand to other jurisdictions, subject to compliance with the local laws and regulations and excluding any cross-border issues.
