ZUG, Switzerland, 18-Sep-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — The Swiss company Alprockz AG announced the start of a round to raise funds for building a financial platform which is orchestrated towards the issuance of its own stable cryptocurrency, ROCKZ (RKZ). The platform will be built on Ethereum blockchain to solve the major problem of the cryptosphere – the lack of a trustworthy anchor to the traditional economy, and possibility to record profits while staying in crypto. The solution being developed by Alprockz will enable investors and traders to exchange their main cryptocurrencies against ROCKZ backed by the Swiss franc.
New stablecoin RKZ
The main working capital of the platform and multi-user asset will become the ROCKZ currency (RKZ), which will be backed by the Swiss franc (CHF) at the rate of 1:1. It is planned that the RKZ token will become a reliable means of recording and storing cryptocurrency profit, as well as investing and paying in the conditions of volatility and instability of the cryptocurrency market.
In e-commerce, RKZ can be a convenient method of payment, along with PayPal and Webmoney in view of the stability of the underlying asset and low commissions within the network. Money transfers with the advent of ROCKZ will be less expensive, and cross-border operations are even more economical in view of the minimal commissions and low volatility in this market of $ 65.7 billion (excluding corporate transfers).
The founders took into account the user’s need for banking products, so a large number of financial instruments can be created on the basis of ROCKZ, including peer-to-peer loans for the users of the platform, bank deposits, etc.
The reliability of investments will be also increased. The stablecoin, backed by the Swiss franc, can be viewed as a convenient asset to protect investments along with fiat funds.
To ensure the security of the entire system, the issuing company will store 90% of the reserves in CHF in paper form (banknotes) in highly protected Swiss bank storages. The liquidity of the currency will be provided by keeping another 10% in various certified Swiss banks. At the same time, the founders state that the financial reserves that support the ROCKZ can not be invested or otherwise used to generate additional income.
The basis of the company Alprockz AG, registered in Zug, Switzerland, is a whole team of international bankers, cybersecurity engineers and financiers. At the same time, the reliability and security of the entire infrastructure will be ensured through strict selection of counterparties, banks and financial agents, the interaction with which will occur in Switzerland, the country with the oldest and most stable economic model.
