Welcome everyone to another DuckDAO AMA.

We are joined today by the team at InvestDex.

On behalf of the DuckDAO community, I’d like to welcome you to our channel :)

👋

M L

Hello Everyone! Happy to be here.

InvestDex

Hi, it’s a pleasure to be here.

Pep

Hello… super happy to have you guys here

Can we start with an introduction for yourselves; what are your backgrounds/experiences both in the traditional and crypto spaces?

Can you also talk a little bit about some key team members that are not here with us today for this AMA?

InvestDex

Hello Everyone. I am the CEO/Lead dev of Investdex and I have our Business Strategist ML with me today. I have a BA (Hons) in Business and I run multiple businesses outside of crypto. I got involved in crypto in Sept 2017 in the midst of the bull run. I fell instantly in love with the space and became very passionate about learning as much as I could. My main focus was software development, trading and algorithms. I have been involved in crypto ever since. My Business Strategist ML is an Economics and Business Studies graduate and has also run a business outside of crypto.

Currently we are working with 3 React developers, 2 Backend Developers, a Project Manager/Lead Developer and a Product tester.

The developers have extensive experience working with crypto projects where they have worked on automated crypto trading solutions which have been sold to hedge funds for high frequency trading. The developers have a lot of experience developing apps which are not only functional but also have a user friendly and user-first approach during development.

Pep

Nice. Great that you’ve been in the space since 2017 because then you’ve experienced a bear market.

Let’s start with a very broad question about your project — can you give us a high level summary of what you are building, and who your target user base is?

InvestDex

InvestDex is an innovative disruption in the DeFi space that merges decentralized crypto trading with a versatile token organizational system that is tailored to the needs of every crypto trader.

“We have based our organisational features on the likes of Trello and Asana, as there is currently nothing like that for the crypto space.”

With InvestDex, traders get a well-rounded platform that compiles their crypto trade flows in a systemic fashion. It lets them keep a comprehensive record of their tokens, track the team’s roadmaps, users can plan their next moves on the basis of pre-defined milestones. They can also track all the important events that are happening in the crypto space and customise it to suit their interests.

Our target base are traders looking for gems, low cap, micro cap projects. Right now we are targeting the Uniswap and PancakeSwap user base. Currently we have charting tools for both Dex’s and we are currently working on our next chain integration.

In addition we are targeting any crypto investors that want to have a more organised strategy to their trading investments.

Video that highlights some of our features!

We hope you like it!

Pep

This is great and seems quite comprehensive.

M L

Thanks

InvestDex

Thank you!

Pep

Will definitely help keep traders on track with so much information.

Next question: I struggle to track my crypto taxes and I wonder if InvestDex is going to incorporate this feature in its portfolio management tool?

InvestDex

So our Risk Management tool is in the early stages of its development. This allows investors to pre-empt the market and minimise their risk, thereby keeping more of their gains. We have explored the idea of adding a new tab for a tool that helps track taxes. This would be complicated as each country has its own unique tax codes, however we would approach the development of this feature the “Investdex way”, ensuring that all our features are user friendly, making the complex, simple.

Pep

I see. And yes, because the global attributes of crypto, incorporating tax tracking features would most likely have to be unique for each country.

So yes I can understand the challenges you would face.

M L

Exactly

Pep

I’m sure as time goes on you can work with the community to see how this could/would be developed. I appreciate the complex -> simple concept that you guys are keeping.

InvestDex

Yes it makes it easier for user adoption

Pep

Do you have plans to make a native InvestDex app for mobile devices — iPhone and Android?

InvestDex

M L can answer this one!

M L

Good question. We already have a smartphone optimised version of the platform which is currently live and we are always working on making tweaks and improvements to that regularly. People using our platform on their smartphones are reporting really good user experiences and we will continue to use feedback to optimise the platform. Having said that, everybody loves an app and we have plans to develop one later in the year but there isn’t an exact timescale on that currently.

Pep

Fair enough. We’ll stay tuned to your announcements for when that happens.

It’s great for the community to know that you currently have a smartphone version available.

InvestDex

Yes! Most people use mobiles nowadays!

Pep

Most Definitely. I know I can’t live without mine

InvestDex

I made a quick video for the risk management tool, have a look!

Pep

Sure… let’s take a moment to review.

WOW that was great!

So easy and straightforward to use

InvestDex

Thanks!

Pep

Also, thanks in advance for the dark version…my eyes are grateful!

But the UI is very simple….beautifully done.

👍

InvestDex

Pep

Do you have any plans to integrate matcha or paraswap instead of just uni or sushi? Wouldn’t it be more comprehensive to integrate an aggregator rather than a specific dex?

M L

On the contrary, our strategy is to focus on the highest volume DEX on each blockchain because that allows us to cover most of the projects on that particular blockchain. If you look at Ethereum and BSC, this is the way the market currently is, with most of the action overwhelmingly concentrated on Uniswap and PancakeSwap. Trying to be comprehensive at this stage would be incredibly labour intensive for not a lot of added benefit.

Pep

That’s a very good point. Focus on where most of the volume is.

InvestDex

I created a video showcasing our Pancakeswap and Uniswap integration, have a look!

Pep

I’m loving these videos. They answer so many questions :)

Pep

Give me 1 min so I can review

InvestDex

We have the best trending token pairs on both Uniswap and PancakeSwap!

Pep

Video was fantastic. Again very clean and easy to understand

InvestDex

We are trying hard to create an amazing product!

Pep

I can see that. Honestly, most things in crypto are so complex but you guys are making it simple….this is exactly what is needed to onboard more users.

What are the ways in which InvestDex generates profits / What is the project’s revenue model? What are the fees and discounts available when using the platform?

InvestDex

We have a couple of different revenue streams, first being our subscription model and the second being our B2B advertising services. In terms of discounts, as mentioned in an earlier answer, users holding a certain amount of INVEST tokens will be eligible for a discounted monthly fee. We will be focusing not only on the price of our token but also on our DAU ( Daily Active Users). DAU is very valuable to clients who want to expand their reach. We believe the features that we have created will bring in a lot of traffic and grow our DAU very quickly.

Pep

Sounds good. It’s important for teams to have multiple streams of revenue.

M L

Yes, exactly. This will allow us to invest in many more amazing features for our community in the future.

Pep

💯

Can you please elaborate on the What Watcher feature on the InvestDex platform? How will this work in practice for a user?

M L

Ok so the Whale Watcher is a feature that allows our users to filter High Volume trades ($10K+) tracking Whales and their movements. It is a very handy tool as you can copy their trades. Generally the Whales are in the know and this can be an incredibly lucrative trading strategy! Here is a video showing the feature in practice:

Pep

I know someone who does this manually and makes a killing. What a great feature to have!

M L

Yes, the Whale Watcher feature works well with the Account Scanner feature. People who know how to do this manually will find this feature will make their lives a lot easier

Pep

Let me check out the video.

InvestDex

All these features are live now !!

Pep

Love it!

ok guys…that’s what we have for our prepared questions presented by our community.

If it’s ok with you we will open our chat foor to the telegram community to see if there’s any remaining questions.

InvestDex

Sure we would love to!

Duck (user @Muticcottyl14)

Is there any upcoming partnership with other big projects ? From my view , I see the project without a massive partnership is useless!

M L

Yes, there are a few big partnerships in the works and they will be announced in the coming days leading up to the IDO. The team is working very hard to build good relationships with other major projects in the space.

Duck (user @Ayh406)

What is the WorkStation? Can you tell us why that will benefit us?

InvestDex

Our Workstation is our flagship feature that will set us apart and it is our U.S.P.

We are the first project to bring these crypto work-flow organisation and productivity tools. Once people start using these tools, they will find it hard to live without. It will benefit us all, I need this tool myself lol. No more missing AMA’s, Pre-Sales, and important milestones. The Interactive Calendar is a maintainable and much needed tool for every crypto trader and investor.

Duck (user @amx200297)

Is the platform safe to Invest? How strong is your security?

M L

Yes. Our token contract has been audited by the Solid group and we don’t have any complicated staking contracts which can make our token vulnerable to hacks etc.

Duck (user @feranno)

Among the competitors who are constantly developing new alternatives, can you talk about some of your killer features that can highlight your Project and provide a competitive advantage?

M L

The Workstation and the Risk Management Tool mentioned above are unique in the crypto space and differentiates us from the competition.

Duck (user @cryptoneco)

There are a lot of crypto enthusiasts who don’t understand the English language well enough and don’t speak well. So, are you aiming to use local communities to raise more awareness of your project among these people in different countries?

InvestDex

Great question! We currently translated our site in Chinese. Over the next few months we will add Korean, Turkish, Spanish … We are planning to do many more.

Finally! I would like to say DuckDAO is an amazing community and It has been a pleasure sharing more about InvestDex today.

M L

Thank you so much for having us today

Pep

This was very informative and I learned a lot. The videos that you shared were fantastic and really show how easy the product is to use

Thank you so much for taking the time today to be with our community.

M L
