Why does blockchain need the institutional investors?

Despite that we all know at cryptocurrency industry is build on the basis of 100% decentralization, in order to create a decentralized infrastructure blockchain requires trillions of dollars. Most of the money is concentrated in the hands of institutional investors, and as a community, blockchain related companies must develop solutions and technical products to connect the fiat money and the crypto industry, thereby obtaining the necessary capital. Community has to develop own vision for a decentralized future. CyberTrust's Global Crypto Notes (GCN) is a key component that facilitates the adoption by large institutional investors of the crypto industry.

Demand for cryptocurrencies on the part of institutional investors continues to far outstrip supply. Given the still low levels of penetration and extremely limited supply, there remains enormous potential for continued exponential growth over the next five years. What is needed is a more flexible supply. Our new platform is designed to address this market demand. This service will help to remove a number of key problems preventing institutional investors from taking full advantage of the cryptocurrency revolution. Moreover, by making securitized crypto more accessible, they will also provide the basis for a wide range of new derivative products such as 3x long BTC. We anticipate significant demand for these derivatives once they become available.

What is CyberTrust?

CyberTrust is a financial services company that provides a traditional investment tool - Global Crypto Notes - which is recognized and audited. Institutional investors will be able to use it for buying, selling, short positions in the market of crypto-currencies, and also for creating derivative assets. CyberTrust provides services for trading, research and asset management for institutional investors.

What is Global Crypto Notes?

CyberTrust's Global Crypto Notes (GCN) is a traditional investment vehicle. GCNs will be fully titled and auditable in collaboration with Ernst & Young as an auditor

It should be noted that GCN is not similar to ETF, the goal of which is small investors, GCN face major regulatory barriers. Instead, they are designed for institutional and to some extent accredited investors.

GCN provides institutional investors with the elements they need:

  • ownership,
  • tax transparency,
  • clearing and settlement,
  • restitution through the courts.

All these elements should stimulate the acceleration of adoption.

Unlike the existing Grayscale fund, CyberTrust GCN has no limitations. And again, unlike Grayscale, GCNs are not limited to Bitcoin only.

Given the long list of tokens on offer, it’s critical to differentiate yourself by offering a clear value proposition. This token stands out in the sense that its value has a clear benchmark, rather than being just a matter of speculation. One CABS token permits its holder to securitize one BTC, and for that service the current market price is about $1800. When you compare this to our price of roughly $150, the arbitrage potential is pretty obvious.

The availability and security of using crypto currency allows the creation of new derivative products. This, in turn, will trigger the demand for these safe assets.

Crypto currency is stored in a secure offline storehouse with protected property rights. The repository is located in a hyper-protected data silo in Switzerland. All funds raised through the CyberTrust platform will be subject to anti-money laundering. Institutional investors can be sure that their funds are not obtained by criminal means.
