Yesterday, I posted a very interesting article that lays forth a glimpse of the Veritaseum business model going forward - Veritas.PanCarib: What the Euro Would Look Like If It Actually Worked? It basically demonstrated that we're much more than a bunch of developers hacking at code. We are global macro strategists, analysts, advisers and financial engineers. As you peer into our inner workings, you start to see that we are different from the standard token offering fare. While we are waiting for the conventional exchanges to get around to listing our token, we've literally made a market on the decentralized exchange, Etherdelta.
Even with all of its UX issues, and relative sluggishness, look at the stats (we're the number one token on the site).
Looking at the depth, the weak handed speculators have left the building and we can focus on those who accept us as the macrotech strategists using smart contracts to take over the world...
Tight spreads, even in a decentralized setting...
Contrary to many who strive towards homogeneity and to be surrounded by those who look, act and speak only like themselves - diversity results in the exponential release of value… Lots of value! Keep that thought in mind as we move on.
Community is a wonderful thing, and the Veritaseum community is vibrant, diverse, effervescent and extremely supportive of our efforts. So much so, that they are creating tools to assist other community members in real-time. We have listed our Veritas tokens for trading on the decentralized exchange, Etherdelta. The exchange is in relatively early development, slower than average and not as intuitive, but proffers autonomous features that none of the bigger exchanges can, with the primary advantage being you get to retain control, possession and ownership of your private keys. This means no foreign governments freezing your assets, no hackers draining the honeypot, and no spontanesous deslisting of your favorite assets.
You can access Etherdelta here. This link contains the configuration needed to expose the Veritaseum token since it is not listed on on the site's menu.
For those who are not technically inclined, here is a community-authored tutorial on purchasing Veritaseum on the decentralized exchange Etherdelta. As another testament to our community's involvement, here's tutorial video on purchasing Veritaseum on the decentralized exchange Etherdelta.
Here's a 4 page preview (20 pages in total), which excludes the nitty gritty. Those of you who may have an interest in Augur's competitor, the other decentralized prediction market platform built on top of Ethereum, you can download the entire report here as a freebie.
After 31 days, the beginning of the beginning is finally over. The Veritas initial token offering has ended. A heartfelt thanks goes out to all of those who supported and believed in our vision. Trust me, the Veritaseum team will be working like rabid dogs to make you proud of your purchase. To those of you who did not get a chance participate, we are now starting to discuss listing VERI with the various exchanges. Although we can't guarantee any listings, we feel that we not only have a very unique value proposition, but we can offer exchanges unique research on the other tokens that they trade (referenceThe Gnosis (GNO) Forensic Analysis and Valuation Report).
This is a discreet and distinct value add that no other token comes close to offering - enabling crypto exchanges to become more like traditional Wall Street exchanges such as Merrill Lynch or Morgan Stanley, who offer research as part of the trading opportunity. I request that all Veritas holders and all who wish to access VERI or just get more VERI, petition you favorite exchanges to list Veritas (VERI). Don't be afraid to approach the larger exchanges such as Kraken, GDAX, Gemini and Poloniex. We will work if from the managerial side.
In the meantime, we're working hard to bring expanded utility to your new "smart" things.
