APIS TOKEN MISSION
Apis Capital Management is an innovative asset manager specializing in unique strategies designed to build your wealth during all market conditions. Through careful market analysis and our trading experience, we are able to profit in rising, flat, and declining markets, generating consistent profits for our clients. Our flagship investment vehicle, the ACM Market Neutral Volatility Strategy Fund, has achieved industry leading returns since inception.
Their goal is to use technology that keeps the Tokens secure, liquid and transparent. The Issuer will use Stellar, a blockchain that provides the best combination of a thoroughly tested platform, speed, efficiency, low transaction fees and liquidity. Powering Stellar is the third evolution of blockchain technology, which keeps the $400 billion USD crypto ecosystem secure. Stellar Network is the fastest blockchain network currently available, allowing over 1000 TPS per second. APIS token will benefit from Blockchain 3.0 technology, making it very effective. Tokens are re-sellable to non U.S.
Every time a Token is exchanged, the transaction is recorded on the Stellar blockchain. This allows the Issuer to track the location of all Tokens without major administrative overhead costs. In addition to recording transactions, the contents of the smart contract are public, which provides Token holders transparency around how many tokens are in circulation and how many addresses are in possession of these tokens. The smart contract will also, have pausing and safe upgrade mechanisms in place to protect Token holders.
The algorithmic trading systems by APIS token are high quality and have shown success in the past. They are made by APIS Capital Management, a team that has over 20 years experience in options, futures, and securities trading.
No Minimum Investment Fees: Unlike traditional hedge fund trading that requires users to pay fees before investing, APIS token does their trading strategy a little different. This platform has no ongoing or minimum fees, which leads to higher returns.
US Investing Tax Deferment: While traditional hedge funds have their investors pay taxes every year, APIS Token holders only pay taxes when they sell the token. For the average US investors (provided they're not paying management fees), this can lead up to 700% returns within 10 years.
WHY CHOOSE APIS?
- Unique Strategy:
The Token provides exposure to profits generated by the Issuer’s investment in the Fund. The Fund’s investment strategy combines selling of “Volatility Risk Premium” (VRP) in VIX Futures or “Equity Risk Premium” (ERP) in S&P 500 Index Options strategies to effectively perform in market conditions including bull and bear markets, with very little correlation of returns to the cryptocurrency market or the S&P 500.
- Proven Track Record:
The Fund has generated gross annualized and audited returns of 70% over its existing 28-month track record. Simulated/backtested returnsfrom 2009-2015 provide similar results.
- No Minimum Investment:
Unlike typical investments in hedge fund which require large capital contributions, a Token may be purchased with as little as [$---] in capital.
- No Fees:
Proceeds from the token sale will be invested directly in the Fund by the Issuer and the Issuer will become a limited partner of the Fund.
No lock up period. Tokens are immediately re-sellable to non-U.S. persons, as defined herein, following their initial issuance under Regulation.
APIS TOKEN INVESTMENT PROCESS
- PHASE 1 : Subscription
Tokenholders send BTC, ETH, XLM or Fiat to the Fund's wallet. Each transaction is publicly recorded on its respective blockchain. Once the funds are received, they are directly invested in the ACM Market Neutral Volatility Strategy.
- PHASE 2: Issuance
Apis Tokens will be distributed to the wallet addresses of the Tokenholders from phase 1. The location of all tokens can be monitored on the Stellar blockchain.
Accepting an Apis Token on Stellar is very simple and requires two simple steps
Step 1: Create a Stellar Wallet
Creating a Stellar Wallet is very simple, and can be done through a number of Stellar access points, such as StellarPort, Stellar Term, Interstellar etc.
Step 2: Set the Wallet to Accept the Apis Token
After a Stellar Wallet is created, it must be funded with at least 2.5 XLM to activate it, and a “TrustLine” established to the “APIS” Token (making sure it is isused from apiscapitalfunds.com).
- PHASE 3: Trading
Tokens can be freely traded between Tokenholders on the Stellar blockchain, including the native StellarPort Decentralized Exchange, as well as other exchanges such as White Company Capital and similar major exchanges.
- PHASE 4: Redemptions
On a monthly basis, the net profits from the Strategy will be allocated to the Investment Balance of the Apis Token, thus increasing the redemption value of each Apis Token.
The Apis Token will also publish the performance of the Fund in a secure and publicly visible manner. There will be no subtraction of management or incentive fees. Proceeds from the token sale will be invested directly in the Fund by the Issuer and the Issuer will become a limited partner of the Fund. The General Partner of the Fund has executed and guaranteed a waiver of management and incentive fees to the Issuer.

The current supply of Apis Tokens is: 2,125,000 APIS
The ICO phase:
From August 1st to August 31st will be open to the public. The Offering Price will be the $1.00 per APIS token. All funds collected will be invested in the Fund as of September 1st and Tokens for investments made during this phase will be issued on that day.
Ongoing subscription phase: From September 1 st onwards, until the Hard Cap is reached, will be available to the public. The Token will be priced at an “Offering Price” determined by the Manager at the beginning of the month and adjusted +/- for the performance of the Fund during the month. The funds collected will be invested on the 1st day of the next month and Tokens issued to Tokenholders on that day. The Token will have a hard cap of $50 million, to ensure that all the capital raised can be effectively deployed by the Fund to generate profits.
Distribution of Profits
Each month, as soon as practical after the close of the month Apis Token will publish, securely yet publicly visible, the performance of the ACM Market Neutral Volatility Strategy, as calculated and audited by the ACM Market Neutral Volatility Strategy Fund’s administrator, Tower Fund Services. The profits will be distributed to the Investment Balance of Apis Token Ltd, to which the Apis Tokens are entitled, thus increasing the value of each Apis Token. For example, if there are 10,000,000 Apis Tokens in existence and the Investment Balance is $20,000,000, each Apis Token is worth $2.00 at redemption. If, however, there are $3,000,000 in profits distributed to the Investment Balance, bringing it to $23,000,000, the redemption value of each Apis Token increases to $2.30.
