Arbitraging (ARB) is a revolutionary decentralised platform using its advanced arbitrage BoT software to produce trading profits within the cryptocurrency realm. The goal of ARB is quite simple and two-fold, first to put investors at the forefront of cryptocurrency investment, and second through the deployment of the advanced arbitrage trading software provide realistic and sustainable profits.
The company fundamentally operates on the foundation of six core pillars that include: (1) Technology – Arbitrage strategies and activities to ensure long term stable profits, (2) Token Growth – through limited supply securing demand for services, (3) Experience – depth, knowledge and expertise a synergy of developers and traders well versed in arbitrage strategies, (4) Control – smart contract based ecosystem supporting the realisation of a fully decentralised platform, (5) Transparency – trading Bot operation on the blockchain with all activity recorded on Etherscan, and finally (6) Sustainability – challenge market perceptions and become a leader in long term sustainable investments.
The Arbitraging Team and their vision, as detailed briefly within the white paper and further within the official website, demonstrates a business model with depth and expertise well suited to engage in activities that include corporate governance, foreign relations, marketing, arbitrage trading and research and development. The synergy of the team clearly visible within the company structure demonstrates the scale of qualified professional depth invested towards the realization of arbitrage trading within cryptocurrency realm.
Arbitraging has challenged the cryptocurrency market place attitude and legacy business practices that corporate governance necessitates anonymity with a ground-breaking step offering full disclosure and transparency of both the leadership and development team. This has massive implications in the market place that can only serve to cement itself both as a market leader and pioneer in the crypto trading realm but also at the same time serve to remove destabilizing anonymous style platforms.
PROS: Pioneering, Experienced Leadership/Dev Team and fully transparent company structure.
Arbitrage Trading Technology
The core of the Arbitraging trading technology is based upon on an open source software called Blackbird that has been re-written from base-code upwards to run on a number of exchanges and a series of block chain pairs (i.e. coin pairs). In essence, it has been evolved to adopt a multi-faceted trading approach with different cryptocurrencies within the market place.
The philosophy behind the Arbitrage software is to automatically profit from these temporary price differences between those exchanges while being market-neutral. Unlike other legacy systems, Arbitrage’s BoT doesn’t sell but actually short sells designated cryptocurrencies on the short exchange. This feature offers two important advantages. First, the strategy is always market-neutral, meaning as the cryptocurrency market’s moves (up or down) it doesn’t impact the strategy of returns. In simple terms, this removes a huge amount of risk from the platform’s overall return strategy as the market could suddenly lose half its value and this won’t make any difference in the strategy returns. Second, the strategy doesn’t need to transfer cryptofunds (e.g. BTC, LTC or Fiat) between cryptocurrency exchanges. The buy/sell and sell/buy opposing trade activities are done in parallel on two different exchanges, independently.
In terms of configuration, the proprietary arbitrage software made available to investors comes in two simple options. The first investment option, conveniently designated as the automatic, or aBoT utilises key trade parameters set for the adopted cryptocurrency (from professional experience) with daily profits delivered in ARB directly to a compatible ERC20 based external wallet. Second, a customisable, or manual option, mBOT permits ARB token holders the ability to perform user-controlled arbitrage trades. With mBOT the investor has access to a visual interface (i.e vBoT) within the dashboard where live arbitrage opportunities can be monitored, assessed and appropriate trigger parameters can be made real-time to perform trades within set guidelines. Unlike the automatic configuration, mBoT converts ARB into available fiat (within the external exchange) then performs arbitrage trades with capital and profits returned in the form of ARB tokens.
In summary the arbitrage trading technology that is core to the platform is an advanced approach to the traditional BTC-FIAT trading system that can now be applied on various exchanges and block chain pairs. The adaptation and therefore re-write of the legacy “blackbird” codebase to include further parameterisation with respect to arbitrage trading strategies has meant it is far more capable in the performing a complex decision cycle of observe, orient, decide, and act at a higher level.
PROS: Blackbird BoT lineage, Arbitrage BoT investment options, no crypto transfer latency issues.
CONS: Proprietary Nature.
Arbitraging ecosystem is collection of unique products and capabilities that is structured to realise the decentralised nature of the exchange and access to the Arbitrage BoT financial trading technology. The platform architecture either leverages the full scope of the Arbitrage Trading BoT (as detailed earlier) or provides unique storage and management functionality for the investor.
The proprietary decentralized blockchain provides a seamless approach to arbitrage fintech services by combining a number of noteworthy innovations from token storage and management, and a number of integrated functional services. Whatever the investor experience level, the interface has been designed to be accessible (i.e. mobile and desktop environments) with simplicity and functionality in mind. It focuses on features that will enable easy transactions and subsequent tracking, and the ability to use ARB Tokens to access internal products and future projects.
ARB asset management and storage options can be simply divided into two levels: external wallets for long-term storage and dedicated digital wallet apps. The decentralised nature of the exchange enables ARB stored on external ERC20 compatible wallets (e.g. MyEtherWallet or MetaMask) to be simply scanned and read by the platform. This ensures that tokens are always held separate and furthermore when the Arbitrage trading BoT is active, those tokens are sent to an external cold storage wallet and the daily profits are sent back to the designated external wallet. Alternatively, the dedicated ARB-wallet application (currently under development) will be able to exchange directly with the ARB Trading platform thereby significantly reducing funds transfer and transaction latency. This integrated concept will also eventually feature for the ardent crypto investor, compatibility with hard-storage devices such as the Trezor and Nano-Ledger.
In summary the Arbitraging ecosystem presents an innovative approach to a complex crypto-trading strategy that is characterised by a proprietary ERC20 based decentralized blockchain, token management system and fully integrated external wallet and hard storage technologies.
PROS: DEX blockchain, arbitrage fintech products and integrated offline wallet options.
Token Smart Contract
Arbitraging has adopted the ARB token identification and development through ERC20 standards. It has been purposely integrated with the ETH Network to ensure that all interactions, exchanges, smart contracts and wallet storage are seamless, secure, swift and straightforward, across all token platforms. This standard is well established, stable, strong, and has been widely adopted throughout the blockchain community.
The widespread adoption of the ERC20 framework across multiple token platforms also means that any tokens built to the ERC20 standard (e.g. contract details) can be easily listed across both centralised and decentralize exchanges with nothing more than the token contract address. The same applies to the listing of any and all ERC20 compliant tokens in one wallet, providing a centralized point of access for all your cryptocurrencies. Due to its widespread use in token creation and distribution at this time, therefore, as well as for the other conveniences outlined in the paragraphs above, the ERC20 adoption by far is the most appropriate solution for ARB Token.
PROS: ERC20 Contract/ETH Network Adaptation.
Token and capital distribution
The ARB coin will serve a number of business development and arbitrage trading purposes, most importantly however is that will assist in raising the capital required to complete final beta testing and deployment of the products and solutions within the ecosystem. As such the Arbitrage Token (ARB) cane be considered as a utility token enabling access to the available market ready BoT’s.
In order to further develop and promote the Arbitraging Trade platform, a token generation event (TGE) offered for sale (Pre-Sale + Public ICO) with 10 million Arbitrage (ARB) tokens minted as the total supply. The proceeds of the TGE will be allocated with 60% – Arbitrage Trading funds, 30% – Marketing and Development and finally 10% – Research and Development. The coin itself is not mineable, and any unsold tokens together with the already planned 500k ARB will be burnt, thereby ensuring the limited supply stimulates token value and demand to access the Arbitraging Trading BoTs. This phase of the project presents a clear and well-defined distribution strategy for future growth of the platform with a distinct emphasis on the application of the core technology.
PROS: ARB utility style token for various BoT applications and well-structured TGE.
The ARB project road map details as short step-by-step development strategy with progress status indication and expected roll-out dates for various components of the ecosystem. It also evident that some components are being developed in parallel and are at their final stages (e.g. beta-testing aBoT and external wallet integration) which indicates the maturity of the overall platform. The presence of component development timelines, including an active completion status indicator (web-linked) demonstrates a strong effort to keep the investment community updated. In addition, an innovative approach towards the arbitrage BoT development has come in the form of open beta-testing limited to ARB investors having met minimum holdings. This strategic adoption has meant an accelerated development and real-world exposure to the dynamic market that not only benefits in fine tuning the platform but also rewards the beta-tester.
PROS: Step-by-step synopsis of development strategy, active web-based progress indicator and beta-testing
CONS: Brief technical details.
ICO Token Sale
ARB ICO token sale will be rolled-out sequentially through ten stages in order to reach a total investment capital, or hardcap of 10,000,000 Tokens. Each stage strategically provides a very clear token bonus schedule which serves to encourage both early participation and a convenient minimum investment. Payment system has deliberately focused on using ETH to ensure full integration with the platform, traceability and thus ensuring expedient nature for trading.
The ARB ICO token sale platform provides flexibility with a variety of options, bonus arrangements and a simplified approach to participation.
Token Price in Stages:
Round 1: 1,000,000 ARB Tokens @ rate (1ETH = 1400 ARB)
Round 2: 1,000,000 ARB Tokens @ rate (1ETH = 1280 ARB)
Round 3: 1,000,000 ARB Tokens @ rate (1ETH = 1180 ARB)
Round 4: 1,000,000 ARB Tokens @ rate (1ETH = 1080 ARB)
Round 5: 6,000,000 ARB Tokens @ rate (1ETH = 960 ARB)
PROS: ICO token sale breakdown, token bonus schedule and payment system.
Arbitraging’s White-Paper demonstrates a technically short yet proficient overview of the ICO that adopts the traditional top-down approach to content. The introduction briefly presents an outline of the arbitrage business platform, trading concept, vision and solutions that has been presented intelligently and without ambiguity. Intermediate sections that form the bulk of the White-Paper cover platform design, the Arbitraging Ecosystem, key product components and features that integrate with the trading platform in a semi-technical level for a wide audience. Marginally more advanced concepts dealing with Arbitrage Trading BoTs that are core to the platform are identified albeit briefly ensuring maximum understanding but also to protect the proprietary nature. Finally, further details provide the technical roadmap, operational overview (graphically) and communication access points for community consumption in a professional and structured manner. Clearly, the white-paper has been written in a technical minimalist approach to maximise comprehension and catering for a wide audience with differing levels of business and technical knowledge. Additionally, it is also noteworthy to mention that it is sufficiently coherent in content to make an informed investment decision.
PROS: Technically minimal overview covering all aspects of project.
CONS: Very brief white-paper.
Communication and Support
Arbitraging demonstrates a well planned and executed strategy targeting community knowledge and awareness with a distinct focus on the individual private investor. Marketing has delivered a solid effort through rebranding to gain traction and acceptance of the advanced arbitrage system within the cryptocurrency community by addressing investors in all forms of social media.
Arbitraging’s website is stylish and well-structured providing an informative yet brief overview detailing the entire platform from the company profile, development team, engineered products and associated progress indicators to links to active social media. However, despite the deliberate simplified nature of the website there is some presence of unstructured information and limited scope that can be a little confusing. In terms of social media presence, the ARB team is consistently active, discussing all matter of topics and updating regularly via various popular services such as Twitter, Telegram, Facebook, BitcoinTalk and YouTube.
ARB’s approach towards effective communication and support of the platform throughout the investment community is model of professionalism and dedication towards the realisation of the arbitrage trading concept.
PROS: Extensive online/offline communication and support infrastructure
Arbitraging is a revolutionary decentralised platform offering the unique opportunity to access advanced arbitrage trading BoT software to produce trading profits within the cryptocurrency realm. It’s radical business model adopting a fully transparent approach to an otherwise stubbornly anonymous niche market is nothing short of revolutionary. The team’s achievements to date have already demonstrated outstanding performance in live beta tests using the arbitrage trading BoT software that serves to not only instil confidence but cement itself as a real market leader. It is clear that some of Arbitraging’s fintech, storage and management products are in the final stages of development and coupled with the technical enormity in delivering the products within the development time-line may yet still prove to be a little challenging. However, the development and leadership team are well positioned to complete verification validation testing to achieve deployment in the market. Arbitraging represents innovation, progress and new vision, spearheading a change in the crypto-space that will undoubtedly make this platform a leader in this niche market.
