The Mandarin Exchange presents another cryptocurrency exchange whose objective is to reduce centralization risks and at the same time recognize the advantages of traditional exchanges via the notion of shared management.
The Market is let down by Centralized Exchanges
Centralized exchanges might be regulated or not; regardless, they generally have bad reputations in regard to essential service standards like security, customer service, and dependability. Response times for support becomes longer and user money can get lost in opportune ‘hacks.’
The Objectives of Mandarin
By using uncomplicated smart contracts as well as a voting method, Mandarin intends to deal with a number of important deficits of exchanges:
- Avoid misuse of money by platform administrators.
- Regulatory interference in monetary transactions.
- Clear cold wallets with more safety levels like multi-sig
- Democratic choosing of other coin listings.
It also endeavors to support and enhance on features which users find most helpful on established exchanges like the capability of carrying out margin trading.
The Mandarin ICO
To improve and begin the exchange, Mandarin started a crowdsale of one month on 29 August 2017 to split the firm assets into 1,000,000 MNT (Mandarin ERC20 tokens), shared between promoters, investors (via bounty programs) as well as the manufactures. In three weeks, the venture collected 1,000,000$.
So as to greatly reduce early devaluation, just 5% is kept aside for campaigns. A similar percentage is offered to early investors as incentives. A huge percentage of the tokens (70) are going to be sold in the course of the ICO; 20% is going to be sealed in the exchange.
Other than sharing profits directly from the exchange, investors who are in possession of a minimum of 10 MNT become the exchange community members, letting them take part in the implementation of major resolutions on its administration. These are inclusive of:
- Presentation of other currency pairs.
- Development of operational abilities.
- Enhancement of present capabilities (such as sustaining exchange money for liquidity).
- Polling on cold wallet money withdrawals (with a speculative 35% vote limit to initiate).
In addition, the leading investors (the ones in possession of 1% and more of total or 10,000 MNT) will reach an admin panel with increased data on current exchange rates, trading as well as platform load.
The Mandarin ICO tries to set up reasonable costing
The 700,000 MNT sale price shall be dynamically changed depending on the overall amount collected, with a precise cost outlined following the finalization of the ICO on 29 September or alternatively, until a 70,000 ETH hard cap is reached.
Exchange intends to begin the exchange in October 2017 and does not provide any commission on all trades to draw new users.
Beginning from January 2018, 0.05% commissions shall be implemented; following this, investors shall obtain their initial weekly share of proceeds in February 2018. In April, a last commission increase shall occur.
When the platform is started, 19 currency pairs will be present across 6 currencies (ETH, BTC, ZEC, DASH, XMR, LTC) as well as 3 national currencies (RUB, USD, CNY).
In 2018, the exchange also plans for a superior program, a trading app for debit cards and smartphones.
