The Road Ahead
Acquaint is a P2P asset trading platform leveraging blockchain technology to provide an on-chain trading platform with real-time settlements.Why create our own token ?
The Acquaint Token will be used within our platform to deploy listing, activate subscriptions and settlement of Asset Sales along with Bitcoin and Ethereum. The implementation of our own token will facillitate near-zero cost settlements and flat 1% commissions compared to the traditional 5 - 7%. A majority of the ICO proceeds will be used to fund property investments which will be listed for sale in our market place, further adressing price volatality by tieing our token to real world assets.

Currently, the space is dominated by central institutions benefiting from documentation handling, SMART CONTRACTS are here to put that money back in your pocket.
- Smart ContractsThis is a self-executing algorithm that describbes a set of conditions stored on the blockchain, the implemanation of which entails real life events known to everyone. Transactions within ACQUAINT are backed with Smart Contracts for both buyer and seller protection.
- Paperless Settlements In the manual world, documents registering your ownership are typically not lodged until weeks or sometimes months after settlement. With Acquaint, this happens instantaneously on the blockchain.
- PlasmaWhile the Lightning Network was limited to work strictly for payments, Plasma extends the idea to more complex computations, like ethereum smart contracts.This ensures timely generation of deeds upon settlement.
- Near zero cost settlements Why spend big to settle cheques ? Our utility asset backed token opens up instant global payments with minimal settlement fees.
What the Media is Saying
- Applied to property, blockchain technology holds promise in several ways. In a blockchain-based ledger, records are time-stamped, as are subsequent changes to those records. This would allow enable people interested in a specific property to see and verify the date of past transactions.
- The potential is great, especially for people in the informal economy to exploit the blockchain’s middleman-free way to exchange assets and information and its irrefutable public record that’s free from the control of any one central institution.
- We see this to be a store of value, a distributed ledger. It’s a great place to put assets, especially in places like Argentina with 40 percent inflation, where $1 today is worth 60 cents in a year, and a government’s currency does not hold value. It’s also a good investment vehicle if you have a little appetite for risk
