Aureus will issue a maximum of 21 million AUR tokens over the course of three years on a blockchain, similar to the Bitcoin blockchain.
Aureus combines the best features of cryptocurrencies – its ability to fuel global, cross-border financial transactions almost instantly, with the best economic opportunities the modern economic system provides. This way, the holders’ Aureus (AURS) are rewarded not just via its use as a cryptocurrency (similar to Bitcoin), but also as an investment vehicle that grows in value and provides Bitcoin dividends to the holders.
Initially, the Aureus cryptocurrency derived its value based on the Aureus Bitcoin Trust (ABT) that held 15,000 Bitcoins from the previously failed community lending program.
The community consists of over 70,000 members, thus giving Aureus a vast network effect right at the beginning of the project. Upon taking over the project, Cryptocrest and the other strategic partners involved meticulously thought out a plan to serve the community best. Firstly, they had to establish the remaining population as a democratic one and give every member a chance to:
has a long history and
proven experience in managing
in the regular economy.
Therefore, a strategic and viable plan was implemented whereby high BTC price milestones will automatically hold a vote. Each Aureus holder was able to have a say on what happens to the ABT.
The Aureus team held a vote in August as BTC price reached $3,000 and above. Majority of the community voted to keep on receiving Bitcoin dividends generated from the ABT. Therefore, the ABT was not liquidated.
In October 2017, another vote was held upon BTC reaching a staggering price of $5,000. The overwhelming majority of the community voted to have the ABT fund liquidated.
Also as a result of the hard fork in August, the Aureus community was rewarded with 15,000 BCH. This was then decidedly pushed aside to also be used to generate dividends by converting 700 BCH monthly to BTC. Therefore, ensuring that the community will have BTC dividends for the next 21 months.
is a blockchain based crypto-asset. It is unique among other crypto-assets in that it derives its value not just from the crypto economy but from the real-world economy.
Aureus is built from the ground-up on a blockchain modeled after the highly successful Bitcoin protocol.
Aureus investors will be able to handle Aureus as they do any other cryptocurrency, as it combines the best of both worlds, providing the flexibility, liquidity, and accessibility of crypto-assets combined with returns derived from the real-world economy.
The goal of Aureus is to enable investors from the world over to invest in local economies via the power of decentralized blockchain technology and help provide them with risk-adjusted returns superior to what they can find locally.
An increase in the value of the Aureus cryptocurrency comes from the investment competency of Cryptocrest, which has a proven experience in managing large sums of money for investors in the regular economy. Thus, investors will benefit not just from the use of Aureus as a cryptocurrency, but also from the vast community network. Aureus is a nascent cryptocurrency that aims to stay innovative and also best serve its community.
