What is Ignite Ratings?

                   

Ignite RATINGS is the world’s first, truly decentralised and self-regulating investment intelligence and ratings platform powered entirely by crowd-sourced opinion.

IGNT token holders are rewarded for participating in the Ignite RATINGS process via a proprietary incentive mechanism which links the wisdom of the crowd with the real-world performance of those assets being rated. We achieve this by listening to our community, investing in those assets that they rate most highly and sharing our gains with them. Ignite’s software solution automatically deploys capital from the Ignite INDEX, Ignite’s own investment vehicle, which is comprised of the highest-rated digital assets available, and powered entirely by the opinion and wisdom of the Ignite RATINGS community.

Why Decentralised Ratings?

Aligned Incentivisation

No conflicts of interest. The Ignite RATINGS community does not receive a financial benefit from the issuer of any rated asset. Instead, the HIVE is rewarded purely on a performance basis – if a position is taken by the Ignite INDEX and performance correlates with rating, our members prosper.

Real-time

No market-chasing “after the fact” ratings adjustments. Deploying the wisdom of the crowd, the Ignite RATINGS community keeps its collective ear to the ground, absorbing and redistributing information in real-time, which equals fluid, real-time ratings.

Transparent

No secret handshakes. The Ignite RATINGS platform is being built entirely with the principle of transparency in mind at all times. Any and all interactions with the Ignite RATINGS platform are immediately accessible to platform users, meaning that anyone can review historical ratings, track reputation evolution, review their ratings performance, review Ignite INDEX performance etc.

Why do we need Ignite Ratings?

                   

Currently, those wishing to invest in “the crypto space” have very limited third party resources to assist them in making investment decisions. The vast majority of reviews or ratings of ICOs are highly subjective (often the opinion of one individual), and tainted by the fact that the reviewer/rater has been paid by the ICOs they are rating. This fundamentally flawed business model is the same as that which has had a considerable part to play in more than one financial collapse in the past few decades, and is so drastically misaligned with the ethos of transparency and decentralisation promoted by blockchain and distributed ledger technologies, as to be completely incompatible.

The Ignite RATINGS model avoids such flagrant conflicts of interest by aligning everyone’s interests – ratings become more impartial, more honest and more powerful through the collaboration of the crowd, while those looking to raise funding via ICOs are encouraged to be more transparent and more professional in their approach.

Ignite has established the Ignite INDEX as a perfect, conflict-free incentivisation tool. IGNX holders, effectively, become the custodians and fund managers of the Ignite INDEX, as the ratings generated by the Ignite RATINGS platform how and when the Ignite INDEX’s capital is deployed. In return for lending their wisdom to the Ignite INDEX, 50% of all trading gains is distributed back to those IGNT holders that participated in the ratings process, while a minimum of 30% of all trading gains is reinvested into the Ignite INDEX, growing the deployable capital base.

The Ignite Ecosystem

At Ignite, our mission is clear: we aim to completely disrupt and decentralise the traditional investment ratings process through community, innovation, leveraging crowd-sourced cooperation and the deployment of proprietary blockchain technologies.

The key components of the Ignite ecosystem are:

IGNITE (IGNT/IGNX)

Our twin tokens. IGNT holders are able to join the Ignite HIVE and are entitled to participate in the Ignite RATINGS programme, as well as automatically benefit from the performance of the Ignite INDEX; while IGNX holders may freely trade their tokens on the secondary market. IGNX is convertible to IGNT (and vice versa) at a fixed rate of 100:1.

Ignite Platform

Our decentralised, socially interactive, investment intelligence and performance-based ratings system – powered entirely by swarm theory AI and user opinion and reputation.

Ignite HIVE

Our collective consciousness, our hive mind. In participating in the Ignite RATINGS programme, IGNT holders pool and share their knowledge, experience and opinions, leveraging collective intelligence for the benefit of all individuals.

Ignite INDEX

Our decentralised, peer-reviewed and community-managed index which is powered by, and directly linked to, the Ignite RATINGS platform.
