Crypto Wall Street’s Latest Little Secret: MASS Token
If you heard of Ray Dalio and Bridgewater Associates, then you know they are the largest hedge fund in the world. Unlike Bridgewater Associates, which trades and invests client funds in equities, bonds, and other traditional securities, there is a budding hedge fund emerging from the cryptocurrency world, named MASS. MASS trades cryptocurrencies and Initial Coin Offerings, or ICO’s, which are the equivalent to IPO’s of this new high-growth crypto asset class. Essentially, MASS takes client money, in the form of Ethereum (or ETH), and uses the funds to buy and sell other cryptocurrencies for a profit. And as most of us know, cryptocurrencies is a young and rapidly growing asset class that has yet to scratch the surface on the potential positive economic effects it will have on the world.
How You Make Money
There are two ways of profiting from MASS Tokens. The first involves ETH payouts. The fund will allocate a portion of investment/trading profits to be paid out to MASS Token holders based on ownership of the fund. So, for instance, if you buy 1 million MASS Tokens, you will get 1/61 of the fund’s pay out profits, in ETH, on a set timely basis. This is very much attuned to the dividends shareholders receive when they own stock in a corporation, or shares in a mutual fund.
The second way of profiting from MASS involves the capital appreciation of the tokens. There will only be 61 million tokens created, ever. As the hedge fund gets bigger, with more profits and rapid growth, the demand and value of MASS Tokens will increase. Think of these tokens as shares of stock in a super high growth IPO.
Combine the above two ways, and we essentially have a super high growth IPO that pays periodic dividends, in ETH, to investors. And let’s not forget that ETH is also a growth asset class, in itself. So, we are getting two growth vehicles with one investment.
How to Participate
There is a current pre-sale, which allows early participants to purchase 1,000 MASS Tokens per one Ethereum. There is a 30% bonus for pre-sale purchases. This means each ETH will accumulate you 1,300 MASS tokens. The pre-sale ends next Sunday, so it would be prudent to get in now if you should be interested in participating in the upside gains of MASS.
After the pre-sale, MASS will ICO. At this stage of fundraising, new ICO participants will receive a 20% bonus for every ETH they contribute into the MASS ICO. This means one ETH will get you 1,200 MASS Tokens. This is still a very good deal, but not as good as the pre-sale. This 20% bonus is only valid up to the first 5 million MASS Tokens sold in the ICO. Subsequently, the next 10 million tokens will generate ICO participants with a 10% bonus. The remaining tokens will be sold at 1,000 tokens per one ETH.
*Again, please keep in mind there is a limited quantity of 61 million tokens.
