Morgan Hill Speaks at Blockchain360 Conference on POF in Finance and Banking

On October 23rd, Managing Partner, Morgan Hill was a featured speaker at Blockchain360, an industry conference. Mr. Hill along with a panel of blockchain experts, discussed ways of exploring blockchain proof of concepts in deployments in banking and finance. The Panel featured AxionV’s Morgan Hill, Joe Raczynski from Thomson Reuters, and York Rhodes as a head of blockchain at Microsoft.

Together they explored the idea that blockchain companies are now beginning to move past the proof of technology itself and actually start creating real products for B2B, B2C and Peer to Peer.  

“Many companies are now moving into a proof of concept, or into test pilots as their blockchain exploration projects emerge out of stealth”, explained Igor Telyatnikov from Alphapoint. Morgan backed up this statement and reiterated that part of the mission of AxionV is to only back and trade around viable products with demos. “A proof of concept can be many things, but the bottom line is that it has to actually ‘prove’ the firm has a viable business model, not just a vague idea in someone’s head and a white paper.  AxionV’s philosophy is proof before investment.”

An example of a proof of concept was the Royal Mint, from England is actually launching a blockchain program to digitize their gold bullion into eGold where your blockchain tokens would represent a real world redeemable stake for gold.  This would make the gold ownership of the Royal Mint very easy to trace and identify around the world, which right now it isn’t, even though it’s used in over 60 countries.  The blockchain would link them all together and create a better distribution network as well as holding them accountable.

The discussion then focused on whether the ICO is a viable model for proof of concept, or just a mere funding vehicle. The group came to the consensus that, given the right circumstances, the ICO market will become both a funding vehicle and a model for proof of concept.  

“The key fact is to identify a framework which is still being developed which will allow firms to prove their business has sustainability and a working proof of concept as part of the integrated funding that comes with an ICO” -Morgan Hill, AxionV

Morgan Hill speaks at ICO conference in New York

Our managing director Morgan Hill was invited to speak at ICO conference in New York on September 22nd. It was an excellent event with number of great speakers and sessions through out the day. ICOnference was a fantastic event to meet enthusiastic crypto investors and company founders from across the globe.  

What has shown great traction is how AxionV maintains the investment approach of focusing only on proven business models or established blockchains that have shown value through broad user adoption.

In addition, new ICO based startups are focusing on novel blockchain concepts and synergy with existing business models, such as streaming data and application services. This is much better than the current Alt-Coin model on Ethereum where you just take a core business, say lending loans, web domain registration, or Moon-pie cakes, and make a coin for it. The blockchain is certainly the next frontier and many investors, developers and major companies are taking it seriously. There are many opportunities in it, and we are just on the tip innovation and opportunity.

At the conference, we observed a number of novel concepts, like the creation of an IoT (Internet of Things) hardware tag that would uniquely be matched to a blockchain address which would accept direct payment. The investment potential here is amazing and could be its own 10x class multiple if executed well. This has many revolutionary ideas, such as the ability to pay the “meter” directly for service such as electricity or water. It reminded us of Vitalik Buterin’s quote about the smart contract being the equivalent of a vending machine for products.  

AxionV will only invest into companies where there’s a virtual guarantee that funding and capital are secure.

While looking at how to do your own private institutional level ICO, our development team has already been gathering investment data across the cryptocurrency industry, and this information can be compiled into an ICO investment database. As mentioned in the presentation, it’s remarkable how ICO’s are facilitating “Crowdfunding 2.0”.

In the near future our machine learning based AI should have enough data to start making direct investment recommendations into ICOs in addition to crypto currencies. Morgan stated that the AxionV objective is to provide the best returns for investors and it is well on its way in that regard. You can participate in AxionV Pre-Ico here and see for yourself how AI crypto trading can minimize risk and maximize returns.

How to Participate in AxionV Pre-ICO: A Step-by-Step Guide

Hi, welcome to AxionV investment instructions. It breaks down all the steps you need to take to invest into the AxionV Pre ICO. Please note that we have received a lot of interest from both individual and institutional investors and AxionV might be sold out before everyone gets a chance to participate. We did not do a presale, so everybody gets a fair shot at joining AxionV ICO. Our tokens are on a first come, first serve basis.

Before the ICO launches, it’s a good idea for you to familiarize yourself with the AxionV team and the fund’s objectives. When you participate, do proper research before clicking that tempting “Join the ICO” button. We come from a rigorous financial and tech background so we firmly believe that a good decision is an informed decision, and want our investors to have the same approach. The articles below offer a look at the AxionV team and the fund’s growth strategy.

Steps to Participate in AxionV ICO

1. Go to the AxionV website.

2. JOIN THE ICO button

Click the JOIN THE ICO button underneath the countdown clock. Once the ICO has begun on Saturday, September 16 at 15:00 UTC, this button will open up the invest page.

3. Connect to account

Connect to the account from which you would like to make a purchase of AXION.

4. ENTER AMOUNT TO BE INVESTED

Enter the amount of Ether you would like to invest. We currently do not accept other currencies. Read this for information on how to acquire Ether.

5. EMAIL

Enter your email address.

6. PPM and SAFT

Read the Private Placement Memorandum (PPM) and Simple Agreement for Future Tokens (SAFT) and check the checkbox I ACCEPT ALL PPM AND SAFT TERMS. All AxionV investors must accept PPM and SAFT before proceeding to purchase AXION.

7. Not U.S Citizen

If you are a Chinese citizen, we do accept your participation. Details here.

If you are not a U.S. citizen, check the checkbox I AM NOT A CITIZEN OF THE USA and you can be accepted. AxionV ICO is not open to accepting funds from U.S. citizens at this time.

8. Public Key

After both checkboxes are checked, you will see the Public Key of a contract to which your investments will be redirected. As an added security measure: compare the Public Key below the Send button with the Public Key located on our blog – the two Public Keys must match exactly. After achieving match, complete the purchase.

Troubleshooting

Reminder: You may only invest in the ICO on desktop or laptop.

Error message 1 

If the amount of Ether you would like to invest is less than the minimum investment amount, you will get the following error. The amount of Ether you are investing must be at least the minimum investment amount (Approximately 80 ETH).

Error message 2 

If the emails you entered do not match, you will receive the error asking you to make sure that your email and confirmation email match. Email is the only piece of information that enables the AxionV team to contact you with all the necessary further steps. This is why it is imperative to make sure you have entered the right email.

Error message 3

If you did not check one or both of the checkboxes I ACCEPT ALL PPM AND SAFT TERMS and I AM NOT A CITIZEN OF THE USA, the following error will appear. AxionV uses best practices in the effort to comply with all the necessary regulations. All investors must accept the Private Placement Memorandum (PPM) as well as the Simple Agreement for Future Tokens (SAFT). In addition, AxionV accepts only non-U.S. investors at this point of time.

Error message 4

If you have not filled out all the required fields and the transaction still goes through or you copied and pasted the public key of our Contract and tried to purchase AXION from your wallet, you will likely receive the following message. The best way to fix this error is to follow the ICO participation steps and fill out all the required fields on the purchase page to acquire AV Tokens.

Other Important Information

1. What is Gas and How It Affects Your Chance of Buying ICO Tokens

All  transactions on the Ethereum network charge a small fee called “gas” to compensate miners to approve and add the transaction to the ledger. ICO launches are often very hectic with lots of investors trying to get in all at the same time. Transactions with a lot of gas will have priority over transactions with less gas. To ensure that your transaction goes through properly, we recommend that you put a healthy amount of gas on your transaction to ensure that you are able to participate in the ICO and don’t get “out-gassed.”

We highly recommend planning your budget in advance. ETH Gas Station is a great tool to plan your fees and optimize your ICO experience. If you use Mist Browser or MetaMask, you will be able to see how much gas is required to verify your transaction.

2. How to purchase AXION with other cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Litecoin, etc.)

If you have other tokens than Ether, such as Bitcoin or Litecoin, you can still participate in the AxionV ICO. Despite the fact that AXION cannot be purchased for Bitcoin or Litecoin at this time, you can still convert your tokens to Ether (you can use  shapeshift.io), and use that Ether to participate in the AxionV ICO. You can exchange fiat money (dollar, euro, etc) at  GDax  or other exchanges for Ethereum.

3. How to check AV Token balance

To check the balance of AV Token you own after the purchase, complete the following steps.

1. In your Mist browser, open the Contracts section

2. Click Watch Token

3. In the TOKEN CONTRACT ADDRESS field, insert the Public Key of AxionV contract to which you sent the funds

4. Click OK. The number of AV Tokens that you own will be reflected in your wallet.

Make sure you follow all the steps, and now you should be all set to participate in the ICO, which begins on September 16, 2017 at 15:00 UTC.
