Lots of attention has been paid to the documentations. There are many documents. For example, there are Whitepaper, Light paper, Terms of Token Sale, Bounty program and Technical Whitepaper, which are coming soon. Roadmap is clear enough. It contains precise dates, when stages of platform development should be finished. Moreover, people can use different ways of payment for investing ( Ethereum, Bitcoin and other assets).
Risks and disadvantages
20 % of tokens are kept for the funding reserve. That index is too high, as token rate can be easily manipulated on the market. Thus, nothing mentioned about partners. What is more crucial is the absence of the alpha or demo version.
A platform for fund management on blockchain is not something new. According to the team members, the project guarantees profit for investors. However, on the cryptocurrency market, nobody can guarantee 100 % profit, as such market is very volatile.

We want to build an investment community, that is fair for all, where there is no discrimination between investors and anyone can have free access to it.

Cross Hedge plans to offer and distribute diversified investment vehicles called “Smartpieces” through Stellar Smart Contracts (SSC) allowing crypto-asset owners to protect their capital from high market volatility.
Cross Hedge allows investors to gain exposure through a diversified portfolio with the freedom of one crypto-asset, in a more convenient and secure way.
Through a transparent and rigorous investment process, Cross Hedge will be able to offer Smartpieces™, in USD, EUR and Bitcoin.

Cross Hedge investors will not have to pay any of the classic investment management fees. In the new blockchain-empowered fund generation, the investor rewards the fund manager only if he generates profits.
Thus, a performance fee will be paid to Cross Hedge for generating positive returns (30% of generated profits). The basic rationale for performance fees is that they align the interests of Cross Hedge and the Smartpiece™ investors community, and are an incentive to generate positive returns. The calculation will be performed real-time and be totally transparent.
