Problem

Reduced threshold
In the era of digital assets, as the access threshold for digital funds is reduced, fund managers do not have to undergo qualification verification, and only need one wallet address to accept and manage funds from all over the world, leading to a mixed bag of chaos in the digital asset management industry.

Lack of Regulation
Digital asset fund is an emerging industry. There is no corresponding industry regulation. The internal operations of funds are not transparent to investors. The lack of information disclosure and external audit can not effectively protect the legitimate rights and interests of investors.

Backward Tools
The management tools of digital asset funds are relatively primitive and backward. Most management teams use basic Office softwares such as Word and Excel and wallet applications for records. The accounting is inconvenient and the efficiency is very low.

Conflict of Interests
Participating parties in the field of digital asset management include regulatory institutions, fund managers, investors and fund custodians, etc. The interests of all parties are not the same. At present, there is no mechanism for coordinating the appeals of all parties.

Lags and differences in regulations
The formulation of laws and regulations generally lags behind the economic and social development. Both digital assets and digital asset funds are emerging industries. The legislative bodies of most countries have not yet issued corresponding regulations, and even if regulations are introduced, they fail to reach a consensus

Regulatory Difficulty
Digital assets have the property of “self-financing”. In theory, the issuance and trading of assets can bypass the traditional financial system, and supervision is difficult.

High Regulatory Costs
Traditionally, most of the fund's supervision has adopted territorial jurisdiction, but blockchain technology has such features as cross-temporal, cross-subject, and international. Fund managers can easily avoid oversight by migrating their registration sites to third countries.The cost of cross-national jurisdiction is too high.

Lack of Popular Recognition
The purpose of supervision is to protect the legitimate interests of investors, but driven by interests, most people lack the sense of participation and recognition of supervision. Therefore, it is necessary for fund managers to be “self-disciplined” in addition to the “self-regulation” of the industry.

Solution

  • Advanced DAO autonomy: digital assets based on blockchain technology have characteristics such as crosstemporal, cross-subject, and anonymity. Traditional supervision is difficult and costly. At this stage, the introduction of blockchain's core self-governance can really help the industry promote self-discipline and standardization.
  • Distributed inclusive finance: Hashgard can empower the design and issuance of distributed digital financial products and enable global investors to participate based on their risk preferences, so we can truly achieve distributed inclusive financeю
  • Code-level contract regulation: Hashgard consists of a series of smart contract portfolios tailored for asset management. Fund managers, custodians, third-party organizations, etc., upon appointment by investors, are subject to corresponding restrictions based on smart contracts.
  • Operational Level Data On-Chain & Privacy Protection: Operational-level data in Hashgard cannot be tampered and will be cryptographically protected. Fund managers and other fund-raising parties, on one hand, will have their key business data encrypted and stored through private keys, which will only be open to authorized person; on the other hand, they can disclose investment decisions, risk management, account management, financial management, and other operational-level data to their investors to prove the truth and credibility of performance.
