How Is XResearch Different from Every Other Investment Research Firms?
The traditional investment research industry is on the decline.
The implementation of new rules in the EU requiring asset managers pay for their own research is expected to cause a decline of 30% in research spending. Groundbreaking technologies, such as IoT and automated bots, are offering new ways to make decisions. And the continuing democratization of information means people can find investment ideas just about anywhere (and some of it isn’t exactly great advice).
XResearch aims to usher in a new age for the investment research sector. A first-of-its-kind investment research firm, we’re changing the game by becoming the first professional crypto insights and media platform that specifically serves investors and traders interested in crypto, blockchain, and ICO investments.
Read on to learn more about what makes XResearch so unique and revolutionary.
We’re bringing high-quality, free research to the crypto world
Think about this: Bloomberg charges roughly $24,000 per year for a single terminal subscription. Utilizing the system’s powerful tools and financial data is out of reach for the vast majority of investors and traders. Very, very few members of the non-professional investing public could ever sign up for this service.
It shouldn’t be this way. And it won’t be for the cryptocurrency world. Investors and traders in cryptocurrencies, ICOs, and blockchain firms will have better, more affordable research.
At XResearch, our minimum viable product (MVP) will offer free content to all email subscribers and website visitors, similar to CoinDesk but with a focus on independent research and analysis. Site visitors will have free access to a variety of data services, including news stories, the latest market quotes, and videos for training.
Additionally, visitors will even be able to view research from our in-house editorial team, who will be hired directly by our core team to oversee content on the public site. Content from XRES token holders who wish to contribute their own content on the XResearch platform will also be made available.
We’re the first crypto-specific professional research firm
For cryptocurrency and ICO investors, life can be tough. After all, valuations aren’t well understood, given how young the market is, and can also be subject to manipulation and volatility.
There are plenty of news stories about how pump and dump groups are artificially inflating prices before selling, which always means the little guy is left holding the bag. Moreover, emotion has too much of an impact on price cycles (do you have FOMO or FUD?).
Then, there are cases of outright fraud. For instance, the SEC had to step in and halt the PlexCoin ICO in 2017 after it raised $15 million from investors by promising 13x profits in less than a month. Also in 2017, the Pincoin and iFan ICOs raised a combined $660 million but were exposed as scams.
Clearly, it’s not all champagne and sunshine for investors in cryptocurrencies, ICOs, and blockchain startups. While there are reputable, honest experts to turn to for solid advice, there’s no easy way to qualify them or find them in the first place. Too many investors and traders have to rely on guesswork.
This is the glaring gap in the market that XResearch intends to fill. We will bring the crypto community institutional-quality investment research that possesses the depth, honesty, and accuracy everyday investors deserve. Everyone should be able to make timely, informed decisions about their investments.
All of the research we provide will be crypto-specific, and will come from very reputable sources, including:
- A team of investment of investment research and securities analysts: Level 1 to Level 3 members (paid subscribers) will be able to receive research from the XResearch core team, who have over 30 years of experience at institutions like PIMCO, Morgan Stanley, and Citibank.
- Independent researchers: XRES token holders Analysts that join our platform and subscribe will be able to contribute their own content and get paid for it. We’ll leverage the power of blockchain technology to monitor and rank their trading activity in real-time (our XRES DApp will track this through our integrated exchange APIs, providing an immutable audit trail of performance). The decentralized nature of the platform will ensure full transparency and trust in the content being published.
The all-in-one XResearch platform is built so that anyone can have access to professional, institutional-quality research at a price they can afford. We will offer free content as well as three tiers of paid services. We will also produce customized research for institutional clients.
Empowering the crypto world with professional investment research
There will be opportunities for anyone who owns XRES to test their talents in making investments in cryptocurrencies and ICOs. If your ideas perform well, you’ll gain exposure, brand recognition, and even make money from subscriptions to your research.
All of this is part of our dream of being the most recognized source of accurate and reliable information for all things crypto. Our decentralized platform is built to democratize investment research, promote healthy competition, and ultimately give users the tools they need to make the best investment decisions they can.
And as part of our commitment to being a source of truth for investors and traders in the crypto sector, we’ll provide third-party audits on how the funds we raise from our ICO are being spent. This way, everyone can see we’re honoring our promises and taking every step to ensure the XResearch platform follows our roadmap.
Finally — just to really put our money where our mouth is — all XRES token holders will have fractional ownership in the company itself. The details of XRES token holder equity have yet to be decided (in part because it does depend on how successful our ICO is), but we are committed to treating our token holders like shareholders in a real company.
It’s a new day for investment research
With the arrival of the blockchain and cryptocurrencies, and the current trends in independent investment research, it’s past time someone paved the way for a new era of democratized research.
But we’re going beyond simply providing investment research from our core team to institutional clients. That won’t change the status quo. Which is why we’re empowering XRES token holders to become paid analysts themselves. Anyone who wants can access a large portion of all the research we produce for free. And all XRES token holders will have fractional equity in the company.
At XResearch, we’re differentiating ourselves in order to transform investment research for the better. Join our Telegram community to come along for the ride.
