Stackr: The Dawn of a Digital Asset Savings Solution – [BTC Media Sponsor]

Financial savings have long been the foundation
of wealth and asset building. However, we are now in a time when the growing
obsolescence of financial institutions has forced certain technologies out of
date, created high fees, revealed structural inefficiencies and, ultimately,
meant that some standard investment solutions now fail to place consumer needs
first. 

The need for new solutions that bring together
the prevailing worlds of traditional finance and modern-day financial technology has never
been greater. At the forefront of this
developing trajectory is Stackr, a
global fintech company that aims to disrupt the global savings industry by
assisting clients in achieving their long-term wealth acquisition goals.
Launched in May 2018, this startup features a team that has known each other
for decades and collaborated on similar financial solutions for years.

Stackr provides a complete savings solution
platform that allows investors to develop a diversified portfolio of both
capital and digital assets. Expertly aligned with emerging developments in the
fintech world, the company has created a fresh set of solutions offering a more
frictionless approach to saving and investing. 

Employing a machine-learning investment model
within a secure, Bermuda-based trust structure, Stackr leverages a set of world-class providers
and legal protocols to provide its trust accounts holders with the following
features:

  • The benefits of Bermuda, a secure and stable international
    jurisdiction with a long, global track record of trust and asset legislation
  • A digital asset model that allows investors exposure to global
    markets with a machine-learning-driven risk management approach and an index of
    the top crypto assets; all with the option of drawdown protection
  • An all-in-one platform where capital and digital assets can be
    held in one place, as well as USD and crypto holding options
  • The ability for consumers to move seamlessly between capital and
    digital asset investments with no switching fees
  • Possible tax deferral
  • Beneficiary nomination options that allow safe, seamless and
    cost-effective investment transfers to beneficiaries in the event of death — all without going through a possibly lengthy and
    costly probate process and with estate duty or death tax savings
  • The ease of digital onboarding and advice via a digital user
    interface with no entry fees, exit fees or traditional financial advisor fees

Swinging the Pendulum Toward a New Future of Savings

Bolstering Stackr’s quest to become the torchbearer of digital asset
savings is a team composed of capital investment, machine learning and
technology experts. Many of the individuals in this group were previously
involved in building a $3 billion savings solution in the traditional finance
space. Some of the team members have, in fact, collaborated together on
projects over the past 20 years.

Stackr has also brought Invictus Capital and machine learning
specialists from DataProphet into the fold to help fuel efforts to build an
optimal savings solution. Invictus Capital, the team noted, created one of the
first tokenized cryptocurrency index funds, raising $38 million for its 2017
token offering.

Cobus Kruger, CEO of Stackr, explained that the main driving force
behind the company’s launch was a desire to change the current financial
services status quo, which currently erodes any chance for customers to make real
returns on their savings.

“For us, it’s about mass user adoption of a new model — one that
leverages technology to deliver consistent, cost-effective solutions for
clients through access to the latest investment opportunities like crypto,”
Kruger said. “We intend to achieve this all within a regulated, risk-managed
environment.”

Pivotal to Stackr’s forward trajectory are STKR tokens. The pre-token generation event (private sale) is currently
underway with Stackr’s public token generation event commencing on January 15,
2019, and ending on February 28, 2019. 

Those investors who hold STKR tokens qualify for
significantly reduced Stackr fees, while a quarter of the net profits generated
are being directed toward a “buy-and-burn” protocol.

This fundraising campaign is a vital step toward
acquiring the necessary funding to advance user adoption and the
disintermediation of the investment industry. Stackr intends to utilize the funds raised to
continually enhance the platform solution and value proposition, utilizing the
latest in technology and trend research. 

Kruger said that Stackr’s focus over the next 12
to 18 months will be to drive user engagement, boosting user experience with
the latest technology available. In terms of the prospect of Stackr integration
with a blockchain, he added that it is already plausible that digital assets
can be housed in a decentralized fiduciary solution like a trust and that
collective investment schemes like mutual funds could be domiciled on a distributed
ledger.

“We anticipate parts, if not all, of the Stackr solution
will eventually end up on the blockchain,” he said. “Our team will continuously
research and monitor developments in the fiduciary, custody, trading and
decentralization of assets sectors to assess the potential for this.” 

Regardless of how decentralized the project
becomes, the Stackr team believes it is offering a solution that combats the
legacy issues prevalent throughout the financial services industry.

“We are excited about innovation and the fact that we have some of
the brightest minds working on solving products and pain points for real users and
potential clients,” Kruger said. “Ultimately, our guiding principle at Stackr
is to bridge the old and new worlds of finance, capturing all of the best
aspects together to deliver optimal returns to customers, allowing them to
acquire and build their savings over the long-term.”

This
solution and participation in the token generation event are not available to citizens,
residents (tax or otherwise) or green card holders of the U.S., or citizens or residents
of the Republic of South Africa, Cayman Islands, Mauritius, Seychelles or
Bermuda.

can be high risk. Based on the shifting business and regulatory environment of
such a new industry, this content should not be considered investment or legal
