Question 1: Firstly, can you give me brief introduction about your management team and Hodlnaut?

Goh:

ABOUT HODLNAUT
Hodlnaut is a Singapore-based fintech startup that provides financial services to individual investors and crypto enthusiasts. Started in April 2019, Hodlnaut is quickly rising to become one of the most promising crypto lending platforms in Asia.

Our founders, Juntao Zhu and Simon Lee were Bitcoin maximalists who wanted to make it easier for individual investors like yourself to earn high interest rates on your crypto!

Our team found out that there was a high demand to earn on your crypto besides capital gains.
Through the platform, the founders aim to offer an alternative solution for hodlers where they can grow the productivity of their digital assets.

Hodlnaut is able to offer attractive interest rates to users through Interest Account by lending the asset to vigorously vetted margin traders in the form of crypto loans.

In conclusion, we want to make it very easy for you to earn high interest on your crypto, without doing much work, generating you easy passive income while you continue to work, eat, sleep or play.

Of cause.

We work together with

Part 3: Guests will choose 5 best live questions from members to answer directly in the group

Question 1: What are the attractive features in your project? What is the vision and goals in your project that you want to achieve in 2021 and beyond? @tamcosuynghi

Goh:

The features that Hodlnaut wants to offer are the following:
– Preferred Interest Payout feature. This feature is a unique feature and a standout versus our competitors because we allow you to earn in your favourite asset, by just depositing one asset. How does this work? You can simply deposit USDC to earn interest in Bitcoin, and then start earning interest on that Bitcoin as well. It’s a very innovative way for users to DCA their way into the ‘blue-chip’ crypto with stablecoins.

– Hodlnaut Affiliate Partner Program. Are you a content creator? We offer very lucrative bonuses of up to USD14,500, and also an opportunity to stack this bonus on top of any ongoing promotions or bonuses just by you creating insightful content for us and referring users to join Hodlnaut!

– Token Swap feature. You can easily swap your tokens seamlessly on our platform, at no fees! We offer a comparatively tight spread as compared to exchanges out there and you can also secure your Token Swap price with our ‘Lock Price’ feature in very volatile situations.

– Nexus Mutual Insurance. Optional Insurance on your crypto! Afraid of losing your crypto due to hacks or halt in withdrawals? Individuals can choose to pay a low premium to insure their crypto, and the advantages of this is that you can continue earning with peace of mind!

Question 2: How can users stay updated with this project? Are there channels, including local communities where users can get the latest updates? @ghetlaohat

Goh:

Yes.

Question 5: Do you have AUDIT certificate or are you working to AUDIT your project, so that the security of the project becomes more secure and reliable? @matdichqua

Goh:

Yes.
With regards to this, we have actually done Financial Attestations with an auditing firm, Crowe Singapore who are one of the Top 8 Auditing firms in the world.

You can find our attestations below:
https://www.hodlnaut.com/press/hodlnaut-partners-with-crowe-singapore
https://www.hodlnaut.com/press/second-independent-verification-234m-crypto-assets-crowe-singapore

We are also actually growing more than 10% month on month! Users are streaming in to HODL their crypto on our platform because it is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to earn interest on their crypto.

Additionally, we are currently applying for a Major Payment Institution License with the authorities in Singapore and are currently granted an exemption to operate under the regulations set by the government – so this gives users an assurance that we are doing everything we can to comply as best as possible to government regulations and make user funds safe, and that we are growing!
You can find the link to our exemption below:
https://www.mas.gov.sg/regulation/payments/entities-that-have-notified-mas-pursuant-to-the-ps-esp-r

That is why we are highly confident that our business will be very successful because we are very close to obtaining a license with the authorities in Singapore, making us one of the few licensed crypto companies.

Also, community feedback is very important to us! We take feedback from all our social media channels and even email, and make sure to address the concerns within 2-3 days of someone raising the feedback.
Moreover, our community has been demanding us to add new assets and networks – this is something we are working on and hopefully will be adding soon by the end of the year!
