The premium terminal for crypto.

Detailed description

Blockchain Terminal bridges the gap between institutional investors and the unfamiliar cryptocurrency market. By combining market data from top cryptocurrency exchanges, information about upcoming ICO’s, as well as news from publications, and social media, our hardware creates a complete picture of the crypto world.

Our proprietary ComplianceGuard Technology ensures that institutional investors can confidently participate in this emerging market. ComplianceGuard creates a strict framework, placing institutional investors in a secured and monitored environment. Our safeguards, alerts, and audit system allow your Chief Compliance Officer to manage and mediate all interactions on the terminal.

The entire BlockChain terminal Ecosystem runs on a utility token. Transactions and functions within the terminal are made exclusively with the BCT Token. The token will be used to register, transact, and utilize applications, all within the platform.

Our Open App Store will utilize the token as a means of exchange. The Blockchain Terminal’s developer program will encourage best of breed applications. With a Crypto Execution Management System (EMS) and an Order Management System (OMS), our software will be able to scale with the needs of your firm.

The pilot installation of the ComplianceGuard technology is installed at 20 hedge funds, with a wider rollout to follow. Security, ease of use, and compliance continue to be our company’s driving forces and we are excited to announce that the Blockchain Terminal will launch in 2018.

Problem

The financial crash of 2008 and increasingly frequent cases of fraud within investment management industries have made high finance and alternative asset classes top headlines. Significant wealth accrued in some sectors since the last recession has been the subject of increased scrutiny, as fund managers seem to stand as a class apart.

Clients and investors, meanwhile, pay steep management fees even as the performance of their investments in both traditional funds and new alternative vehicles slips. With frequent headlines describing massive frauds filling the news cycles—from Madoff to the recent US$1billion breach of the Punjab National Bank in Mumbai the ability to make secure and attestable transactions directly and with absolute confidence is quickly becoming the expected security standard.This new world of compliance and consumer protection adds complexity to routine transactions and requires stepping beyond the status quo in order to move forward to raise capital.

Blockchain appeared in the wake of the financial crisis as the underlying technology to enable “A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” in the form of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and ether (Nakamoto [2008]). While the cryptocurrencies dominated the news, the breakthrough distributed ledger technology of blockchain jumped the chasm of adoptability and has emerged as the innovation that could upend business models and open a new era of transparency and decentralization for a wide range of industries including investment management.

Investment managers, specifically hedge fund managers, and managers working in al- ternative investments, are constrained by investor mandates. The execution of their fiduciary responsibilities in compliance with these mandates is opaque and difficult to track, making adherence to constraints and proper handling of exceptions difficult to demonstrate. Even when compliance is demonstrated, the attestation requirements of accountants, auditors, counterparties, partners, and investors are burdensome and inconsistent.

Solution

With an ingenious combination of cryptography and mathematics, blockchain-based transactions are verified, cleared, and stored in a block that is linked to the preceding block

The result is a chain that provides an immutable record. Blockchain Terminal (BCT) - a creation of the developers at CG Blockchain in partnership with FactSet, a global provider of integrated financial information, analytical applications, and industry-leading services leverages the power of blockchain technology in order to bring the security, assurance and immutable trust demanded by the operators of hedge funds, wealth management enterprise, and cryptocurrency trading. The use of smart contracts in the BCT network allows audits in real time, while applications that create privacy features can assert the truth of the record while protecting the privacy of the participants.

A broad community of developers has created a catalog of BCT applications that present an array of powerful new tools enabling ad hoc audits and delivering transactional transparency and real-time compliance assurance. Using the BCT, investment managers can assure a robust layer of security and functionality to their advancing business strategies.

At the same time, the BCT introduces capabilities for effective management of the complexities of cryptocurrency markets and across a rapidly emerging new asset class.
