"1st Crypto Asset Manager running Bots' Army"

ABOUT


NAPOLEONX

NaPoleonX ambitions to become the 1st algorithmic asset management company for crypto investors. The value proposal is underpinned by long standing performing trading bots running on a variety of highly liquid assets. NaPoleonX will benefit from a large range of existing trading systems developed by an experienced team in financial markets. NaPoleonX will drive DAFs development strategy, benefit from 85% of all botons consumed (performance fees) generated by the various DAFs and allow for preferred access during the future DAFs' launch.

NAPOLEON CRYPTO

Napoleon Crypto will run a platform that will enable the design of algorithmic solutions on an open source scheme. It will act as an advisor to NaPoleonX by regularly proposing new algorithms to launch new DAFs. NaPoleonX will vote on the effectively launched DAFs. In exchange, Napoleon Crypto will benefit from 15% of all botons consumed (performance fees).

DAF


DAFs, or Decentralized Autonomous Funds, have been introduced for the first time in NaPoleonX’s Whitepaper (Dec 2016). DAFs are conceived as smart contracts able to invest in financial markets through trading bots. A trading bot is basically an algorithm buying or selling a given underlying asset (ex: S&P500, ETH …) in order to generate an absolute performance.


A DAF will empower its owners to select (i) which trading bot(s) to use among a selection list provided by Napoleon Crypto and (ii) the appropriate leverage level. This initial “bot allocation” will be reviewed by its owners through a regular voting process.


The “bot allocation” will act as an oracle to give market orders to the DAF. DAFs may need to mirror their actions when operating on real underlying assets (ex: S&P500). Napoleon Crypto has developed a large set of performing trading bots and will offer them for the first DAFs to be created.


BETA


Asset managers trading on real assets are facing a major issue: to prove their performance towards third parties and potential investors in particular. At NaPoleonX, we have solved this issue by using the blockchain as trusted third party to compute an index from any given strategy’s signals, while proving that the signal was known in due time but disclosing it with any chosen latency.

Proof of Performance has been implemented in the world first blockchained index publisher developed by NaPoleonX. Beta version is available at beta.napoleonx.ai. It presents the indices corresponding to the first DAFs that NaPoleonX shall launch after its ICO and constitutes the first brick of the NaPoleonX platform.
