Airdrop 200 USDT for the best questions in the AMA.
Below are some main points of this AMA:
Question for Part 1- Project overview
1. First, please give us an overview of GAINS. What are some outstanding features that GAINS can offer to users in the crypto space?
Mr. Raffin: GAINS Associates is the World's First Decentralized VC. With over 3 years of experience and several ultra high return deals, we are removing the barriers of entry to investing and changing the world, one deal at a time.
In addition, we provide daily news, articles, video interviews as well as fun & educational events.
By holding the GAINS token, anyone can get access to private groups in which exclusive deals are offered.
Some of the projects our members had the opportunity to invest in are Avalanche (116x), Quant Network (57x), Reef.finance (62x), Bridge Mutual (42x) and many more. Recently, we also had the pleasure to invest in and support LABS Group and Cellframe that both did very well (50x+)
CF: Wow I can see many big names here
Mr. Raffin: Indeed, it's been an honor to work with top tier projects of the space
2. Share with us the vision and goals of GAINS in the near future.
Mr. Raffin: Our vision is broader than just offering deals. We will have a complete suite of tools to democratize investing and cryptocurrencies.
This year, we plan to keep on
— Delivering great deals like we know how to do
— Start incubating a few projects - very excited for this
— Launch several key products to enhance the ecosystem for retailers
3. Please update the latest news or hot events of the project to the community
Mr. Raffin: Recently, we've been happy to pioneer learndrops. We had learndrops for DATA, OCEAN and KNC holders so far.
It's been a great way to filter people who can't be bothered to read and do basic research. Even easy questions are good to remove lots of people that we don't want in our community. We will continue to have these types of events and we're planning on pushing things even further :)
Maybe one day projects will only have holders who are very knowledgeable about what they do. Imagine if every holder could be a true ambassador of the project.
Questions for Part 2 - Pre-collected questions from Twitter:
1.Finally you are now launching your own token for being in Crypto for 3yrs, so can you tell us some overview of your Tokenomics & it's Use cases? Also what will be the special role of GAINS token in your platform and where & how we can purchase your tokens? @DavidGa6969
Mr. Raffin: Token metrics can be found in our deck: https://www.gains-associates.com/deck.pdf
Mr. Raffin: Use case of the token: getting access to groups with deals. The more tokens you hold, the higher the tier, the bigger and more exclusive the allocations
— GAINS Tiers —
🐳 Tier 1: GAINS Blue Whales - 200,000 GAINS required
🦈 Tier 2: GAINS Baby Sharks - 100,000 GAINS required
🐬 Tier 3: GAINS Sleek Dolphins - 30,000 GAINS required
🐟 Tier 4: GAINS Silver Fishes - 10,000 GAINS required
You can purchase the token on Uniswap. It'll be listed on April 6 at 5pm UTC
CF: Wow that's such a nice metrics
Mr. Raffin: Ahah thank you. There are some interesting details in the deck as well. The team will only get tokens if we provide deals that deliver a combined 1,000x ROI
2.Very excited to hear that #GAINS have finally launched token after 3 years. Would you mind reveal a bit information about the upcoming app mentioned on the website? Will it have interesting events or features? @Lbothmoth
Mr. Raffin: We're working hard behind the scenes to deliver a smooth app that will allow you to track your investments with GAINS & portfolio. It will also be your one-stop shop with all the info and news you need.
3.Nowadays, DEFI is fragile and lots of projects are attacked. Did #GAINS prepare anything to protect the users' fund? Could you mention a bit of security features #GAINS offers the investors? @Alexand67918807
Mr. Raffin: We have a simple ERC20 Smart Contract without any complicated feature. An experienced solidity dev has reviewed and found no flaw.
Audits can be good for complex Smart Contracts but for us it doesn't make sense.
We're also using multi sig wallets. We have taken security very seriously :)
4.Why GAINS choose to operate IDO on POOLZ rather than other platforms. And why GAINS still run on Ethereum Chain instead of BSC or HECO which is currently received public attention?@DatLePhuoc1
Mr. Raffin: We have chosen to have IDOs on Poolz and Zendit from MANTRA DAO because they're some of the top launchpads in crypto.
We were early investors in MANTRA and know the team very well. They have done a tremendous job spreading the word about what we do and we're confident the holders there know our project well :)
5.We have understood what #GAINS benefit users and investor. But what are the outstanding features did #GAINS offers others DEFI projects? Is there any plan for getting worldwide adoption? @congacongoa
Mr. Raffin: We offer a full fledged solution to projects who want to incubate with GAINS: we can take care of everything besides the product part.
Regarding worldwide adoption, we have plans to do some things in Africa, where there's a rapidly growing market and a huge demand for crypto
CF: I think you should also focus on the Asian market too. The crypto world is super vibrant here
Mr. Raffin: For sure! It's the biggest by far
PART 3: BEST LIVE QUESTIONS CRYPTOFAMILY GROUP
Question 1: want to submit my crypto project to GAINS, how do I get in touch? How do I get updates on new events or groups? My native language is not English, can I still participate? @Anhloczz
Mr. Raffin: We have a contact form on our website that you can use to submit projects. You can also DM me but please only if it's a very good project 🙈
We do use English in our main groups but I guess you can use any translator online and I believe there are also some integrated solutions directly with Telegram.
Question 2: I'm so curious to know that, in these two years of experience in your community, what has really been the biggest obstacle you have had to overcome? Will it be the constancy of staying in good and bad by presenting projects? @kobt3
Mr. Raffin: We haven't faced any major hurdle so far. There's been a few issues here and there which are expected in this space that moves so fast. Some things are bound to break or bend.
I think the biggest hurdle is almost always yourself and doubt. I'm sure lots of people experienced that to some degree during the bear market. It's important to stay strong and a tight community helps with that 😊
It is also a challenge to choose good projects, especially when you start in crypto but with time comes experience and network, which both help tremendously to get into solid and hyped projects.
Question 3: Could you give us an overview of the tokenomics? Is the token designed to rise and fall with the success of the platform, and does it include any scarcity paths such as stake, store, or burn? @kobt3
Mr. Raffin: I've talked about token metrics above but let me highlight something else.
We have a unique buy back & burn model that shows our skin in the game.
Details are in the deck but essentially, we always invest in the deals we offer personally and we will also invest half the fees in said deals. The profits will be used to buy back and burn GAINS.
We will also buy back and burn GAINS with 10% of our revenue from other sources than deals.
Question 4: I want to support your project, Tell us more about the Ambassador Program and in what ways can we participate ? @CSNDer0
Mr. Raffin: There's no official ambassador program yet for GAINS but anyone can be one! Some of our members proudly have a 🐋 in their name for example.
And just this morning, someone from our community literally told us he's going to tattoo "GAINS 4 Life" on his ass thanks to all the profits he made 😁
Question 5: If anybody thinks your project really likes a scam project, and they can't trust this project. How do you make them believe in your project? @opicoa
Mr. Raffin: We have been in crypto for 3 years and delivered dozens of deals, millions worth of tokens. That speaks for itself. We intend to keep on building something for the long term in crypto.
Mr. Raffin: Thanks everyone for all the questions
It's been really impressive to see such a big community!
CF: Really appreciate all of your answers in Crypto Family Trading Group today, we all hope GAINS will expand its ecoystem and gain mass adoption in the future!
