Ignite RATINGS is the world’s first, truly decentralised and self-regulating investment intelligence and ratings platform powered entirely by crowd-sourced opinion.
IGNITE 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 turns ratings into trading signals and automatically deploys capital from the Ignite MASTER INDEX, Ignite’s own investment vehicle, which is comprised of the highest-rated and performing digital assets available, and powered entirely by the opinion and wisdom of the Ignite RATINGS community.
No conflicts of interest. The Ignite RATINGS community does not receive a financial benefit from the issuer of any rated issuance. Instead, the HIVE is rewarded purely on a performance basis – if performance correlates with rating, our members prosper.
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.
No secret handshakes. The Ignite RATINGS platform is being built using a proprietary blend of on/off blockchain solutions, but entirely with the principle of transparency in mind at all times. Any and all interactions with the Ignite RATINGS platform are contained within smart ethereum contracts and other distributed ledger technologies, meaning that anyone can review historical ratings, trading signals, Ignite INDEX performance etc.
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.
Proceeds from the Ignite crowdsale will be used to fund the ongoing development of the Ignite RATINGS platform and to provide the initial investment capital for the Ignite MASTER INDEX. Ignite’s token holders become its fund managers, as the ratings generated by the Ignite RATINGS platform are translated into trading signals and the Ignite MASTER INDEX’s capital is deployed. In return for lending their wisdom to the Ignite MASTER INDEX, 50% of all trading gains is distributed back to Ignite’s token holders, while a minimum of 30% of all trading gains is reinvested into the Ignite MASTER INDEX, growing the deployable capital base.
Ignite has partnered with an industry-leading payment card provider to manufacture and distribute Ignite debit cards (the Ignite CARD), which will allow IGNT holders to easily withdraw and spend their rewards wherever they are in the world.
Once approved, IGNT holders will be able to transfer any rewards earned from their participation in the Ignite RATINGS programme directly to their Ignite CARD.
We are also working to secure an industry-first loyalty programme which will reward IGNT holders for using their Ignite CARD with many additional value-adding benefits.
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.
