Summary rate the project
At what stage is the project? Is it working?
Yes! CoTrader's MVP is live on the testnet on demo.cotrader.com even before its ICO. Imagine that!
What's the usage value of the token?
The main token utilities of the token relate to staking, fees, profit buy-back, burns, cross-platform interoperability, and shielding fund managers’ investment strategies and portfolio details from their investors.
What will CoTrader do with all those massive platform profits?
The plan is to use all platform profits to buy back CoTrader COT tokens, and burn at least half of them by default. Remaining COT would be held until directed by DAO to be used to progress the platform further.
Does the CoTrader protocol have cross-blockchain support for all smart contract platforms?
Yes! The CoTrader anonymizable smart fund protocol may interoperate on any smart contract supporting platforms from Ethereum, to EOS, NEO, WanChain, Hashgraph and others!
Does CoTrader support all cryptos, and stocks, options, and other derivatives?
Yes! The CoTrader protocol supports all tradable assets whatsoever by automatically tokenizing all assets traded on any exchanges using our smart escrows and master accounts. CoTrader thus supports cryptos, stocks, shorts, options, derivatives and more.
Does CoTrader support onchain ICO trading (without requiring trust and IOUs)?
Yes! CoTrader supports trading ICOs. Smart funds may contain ICOs, which really represent future tokens that the issuer will send or unlock later. Since smart fund shares are also tokenized and tradable, CoTrader is the world's first true onchain ICO trading marketplace!
Does CoTrader support mobile and other non-web access points?
Yes! Mobile is also supported. Any ERC20 token supporting wallet is enough. Whitelabel access of any sort is possible.
Does CoTrader also plan it's own blockchain?
Yes! CoTrader is researching a distributed ledger protocol that would be fast and secure with support for privacy preserving smart contracts without a trusted setup.
Is CoTrader a platform, protocol, infrastructure or marketplace?
Yes! CoTrader is a platform, protocol, super-DEX infrastructure, and investment funds marketplace. It's a platform to launch smart-funds. It's a protocol to extend privacy to any DEX (including our own) and standardize tokenization and compliance. It's an interface into smart funds on our Super-DEX. It's a marketplace for cotraders to consume the investment funds service products of fund managers.
