Crypto investments are considered risky, because there are no government or other regulators able to stabilize the market and facilitate trading of national currencies. One of the ways to mitigate financial risks is to make use of hedging agents or risk reduction tools. DeHedge aims to create hedging tools for the cryptocurrency and ICO market, providing the opportunity to hedge investments against fluctuations in cryptocurrency and token prices.

What is DeHedge?

DeHedge is engaged in the creation of conditions for safe investment in cryptocurrency funds and ICO projects and minimization of risks through the creation a financial cushion for investors. DeHedge was the first to enter the ICO market with a program aimed at combatting unscrupulous entrepreneurs eager to cash in on the uncontrolled flow of large sums of money in the new cryptocurrency industry.

The essence of the project revolves around hedging investments in cryptocurrencies through a smart contract, blockchain-based system backed by a reserve fund, allowing investors to recoup any losses sustained from investments into ICO projects. DeHedge offers investors the chance to retain their original investments in case of events leading to drops in the exchange rates of the project tokens they hold.

Bermuda to Issue First ICO License

The first 'official' ICO that will be held at Bermuda is Uulala
19 October 2018   60

Bermuda’s Minister of National Security, Wayne Caines, said that the Uulala fintech company received the first ICO license in the region. It is reported by the Royal Gazette.

In July, the Secretary of the Treasury of the Overseas Territory of Great Britain, David Bert, introduced new regulations for fintech products and services. The bill classifies initial coin offers (ICO) as “limited business activities”.

The draft law also states that before holding a tokensals, companies must provide information about the proposed digital assets, the financing system, the amount to be raised and various technical aspects. In addition, you must obtain consent from the Minister of Finance of the region.

The CEO of Uulala, Oscar Garcia, reported that the process of obtaining a license took four months. Fintech offers a decentralized peer-to-peer network “to attract cash into the digital economy.” During the ICO, Uulala plans to raise $ 50 million.

We are looking at operating from Bermuda. The Bacardi story resonated with us — a group of Cuban Latinos who went to Bermuda and established their headquarters there. We are looking at doing something similar. Bermuda is known as a financial hub and it is very forward-thinking on blockchain and fintech.

CEO, Uulala

The government of Bermuda began to develop bills for the legalization of the ICO in March. Then David Bert said that Bermuda could be an example for other countries in the field of ICO regulation.
