About Napoleon X
NapoleonX is the first 100% algorithmic crypto asset manager. We are a French entity that will be fully regulated and licensed. We have been founded by former multi-billion asset managers at Tier 1 banks, who have designed and run high-performance trading bots for the past 10 years. We think that two phenomenons are currently shaping a new paradigm that will completely redefine the investment industry, to the benefit of the community, while giving anyone access to the best investment strategies. On the one hand, we witness the emergence of new governance schemes enabled by smart contracts (and the corresponding DAOs, DACs, etc) and on the other hand, we observe the omnipresence of the investing quant strategies and bots in the best hedge funds and banks. Combining these two expanding developments allows people to get their complete freedom back on their investments, far from current investment mechanisms controlled by an ever ageing banking system. NapoleonX’s value proposal is underpinned by long-standing, high-performing trading bots running on a variety of highly liquid assets. NaPoleonX will capitalize on a broad range of existing trading systems developed by an experienced team in financial markets. Our team will continue designing and managing new trading bots that will be encapsulated into investment vehicles, aka Decentralized Autonomous Funds (DAF), in order to give investors access to robust investing strategies. These investment solutions have been tailored with crypto-holders in mind, who are looking for decent returns on their savings.
NapoleonX project is about becoming the master sponsor for launching a series of Decentralized Autonomous Funds (DAFs). These vehicles will invest in 100% algorithmic solutions proposed by Napoleon Crypto. NapoleonX will benefit from 85% of all performance fees generated by the various DAFs and 100% of the performance on its participation in these vehicles.
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 performance fees.
The golden equation
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.
