Silverway OTC data for crypto markets Whitepaper v. 1.8 silverway.io

Introduction Silverway provides aggregated and structured OTC (over-the-counter) data for crypto markets. The company’s ecosystem includes hundreds of professional investors, brokers, exchanges and projects, in addition to thousands of large and retail investors, while the ecosystem could potentially be opened up to far more accredited market participants. The Silverway platform has been created by a team of former investment bankers and private equity professionals that can be considered amongst the pioneer professional investors in the crypto and blockchain sector.

The problem The blockchain investment space needs an institutional-grade provider of OTC data for private round tokens. Such a service will help all market participants better understand this non-transparent market niche and make more informed decisions. There is no existing platform in the industry, which provides either current or historical OTC data. Moreover, collecting raw OTC data is a complex and time-consuming task, while it’s also difficult to process and unify the aggregated raw data. Thus, all market participants have been relying on fragmented data and rumors. This creates a high-risk environment, wherein all bona fide participants face uncertainty when making management and investment decisions. Some of the typical questions faced by market participants are described below. Investment funds Brokers What is the right price for the Project X’s What is the size of this market niche? non-listed token? What is the right price for the Project X’s Should we buy/sell? non-listed token? Is it the right time for the deal? Is there enough liquidity? Is there demand/supply? Are there many buyers/sellers? What is the value of my portfolio? Can we help our clients with transactions? Are there any other projects our clients will potentially be interested in? Exchanges Projects Should we list Project X? What is the current token price? Is the market interested in Project X? Are there a lot of buyers/sellers? What IEO terms should we offer? How will this affect the token after the listing? Are there any risks for token price performance we haven’t accounted for? How will this impact our reputation? How should we plan liquidity events? How can we monitor the OTC market? Media / Analytical platforms Retail investors Should we cover this market niche? V Where and how funds/ C invests? How does this market work? How can we get more information before the token is listed? Are the any reliable data providers in the space? What are the key OTC market current and historical trends and metrics? 01

The solution Silverway is the first platform to provide the entire cryprtomarket ecosystem with aggregated, processed and structured OTC market data. Seer past and active transactions/offers to support informed strategic decisions. 20,000+ 50+ 400+ Data points Data sources Projects reviewed 80+ 18 months’ Insightful data Project reports Worth of data (since 2018) Сharts and tables with price, volumes, valuation, spreads Silverway’s database covers over 80 key projects in the industry, with coverage of over 400 projects overall.

Use of the Silverway platform will safeguard market participants from major risks related to OTC crypto trading [10] and bring benefits to all market participants. 02

The market Snapshot of OTC market 1 Large and active ~$5 bn of locked-up value 1,000+ offers on leading projects' tokens every month 2 Represented by key market participants 90% of investors' money is concentrated in leading projects: Hedera, Polkadot, DFINITY, and all IEOs Key market participants are the industry's decision makers and money holders, including funds, largest brokers and asset managers and exchanges 3 Of great interest to the community Pre-listing information on how leading projects are priced, demand/supply, etc. is of real interest not only to key participants, but also active retail investors and those who just track the market 4 Newsbreaker News about the OTC secondary market generally circulates as rumor and so is widely discussed by the community The market is usually perceived controversially, sometimes with scandals, making it high-profile and talked about 5 Poorly-covered area Reported on through rare articles in top sources (e.g. Coindesk) or low-profile sources. In both cases: poor quantitative data, with only a narrative.. ..making this a great opportunity to be the first mover and trend setter 04

Private token sale market evolution The crypto market is crowded with a large number of exchanges and OTC brokers. However, its lucrative private placement niche remains underserved. Silverway will help significantly increase the presence of institutional participants, liquidity volume, and funds turnover in the blockchain investment market. Since Q4 2017, the token sale market has promptly shifted to a private placement model. By the end of 2018, private sales accounted for over 50% of the market volume on average, and up to 75–100% of the most sought-after projects [2]. A sharp market drop in November 2018, along with uncertainty regarding further market dynamics, forced most projects last year to postpone the launch of their token generation events. On the other hand, projects that conduct placement via the recently introduced Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) vehicle [8] mostly either align the cliff and/or vesting period to the IEO date or even extend past it. Moreover, they tend to alter the selling conditions so as not to favor funds and other institutional investors, effectively increasing the total lockup horizon and, as a result, the market size of frozen capital. 05

Fundraising, $ mn Acc. unlock, $ mn Public trading (indicative) The typical scheme of a blockchain project’s private round is to lock up investments for 8–24 months. According to Silverway research, the total volume of locked up investments has reached an impressive amount of $4 bn [2]. The large amount of frozen capital on the market, along with high volatility, leaves investors with assets that are not traded and, thus, illiquid. Attempts to overcome this drive the current gray market in locked private round tokens, conducted through a large number of OTC chats. OTC market evolution Overall, positive dynamics have been observed in terms of growing attention from established traditional investors toward the blockchain space. The is growing interest in crypto assets from institutional investors is supported by evidence from diverse areas of the financial industry [18][19][20], including hedge funds trading liquid assets [16], as well as from VC/PE funds increasingly investing in blockchain projects [33]. Alongside UHNW individuals expressing interest in crypto, firms like State Street, Morgan Stanley, and Goldman Sachs also set up shadow crypto trading desks [22]. Since December 2017, institutional investors have been entering OTC crypto markets [14], at times driving surges of up to 60% in the net imbalance between OTC buys and sellers [17]. The positive market dynamics in April 2019 also prompted a 66% increase in OTC trading activity on Binance [21]. According to Cryptofunds Research, crypto assets under management by hedge, venture, and PE funds reached $14.35 bn as of April 2019 [1]. 06

Evaluation of OTC Market for private sales Estimates of the size of the OTC market vary drastically, since, being relatively unregulated, it undergoes little in the way of strict quantification. For instance, in April 2018, the Bitcoin OTC market was estimated to be either three times larger1 or 15 times smaller2 than the exchange market. However, evaluating the size of the OTC market for private round tokens is much more complicated, since OTC desks prefer to work with the most liquid digital assets, and it is almost impossible to monitor all closed deals and their final terms in OTC chats and groups. The absence of an institutional-grade trade facilitator for these type of investments leaves locked private round assets to be traded on a labyrinthine market that lacks trust between participants. Silverway’s in-house research reports a substantial TAM with a current estimated size of over $4 bn [2]. This data was aggregated from multiple industry sources, including Cryptodiffer, Hypernum, ICOBox, ICORating, Tokenschedule, ICOData, SmithandCrown, ICOBench, SATIS, TokenData, ICODrops, Coindesk, Medium, and broker research, as well as private discussions with the most active investors on the market. $21.1 bn $4.1 bn 1,000+ 10k+ Total volume of Agg. volume of locked-up Institutional Interested token sales in funds from private sales market players retail investors Q1 2017 -- Q1 2019 Q1 2019 in Q1 2019 in Q1 2019 This estimation falls in line with other research. For instance, the crypto intelligence platform InWara reports that in 2018, despite a sharp decline in public sales, private funding saw ~100% growth as VCs / dedicated blockchain funds went long on blockchain projects, which as of the end of Q3 2018 collectively raised ~$4.1 bn [37]. 1 ~$4 bn vs ~$12 bn worth of bitcoin processed per day, the TABB group estimation [13]. 2 Digital Asset research estimated the market to hold $250 M in bitcoin trades per day [15]. 07

Moreover, according to Circle research, in the US alone there has been a more than 6-fold increase in the number of Reg D offerings filed with the SEC [38]. This kind of investment is subject to a 12-month lockup and is only available to “accredited investors”3. In 2018, 287 such offerings collected ~$8.7 bn, quadrupling the amount raised in 2017. This trend is concurrent with the growing number of cryptofunds [1], and is indicative of a rise of investor-grade token sale products. Key market participants Exchanges Investment funds Dozens of exchanges Hundreds of investment funds Projects Brokers Hundreds of projects Hundreds of brokers Media platforms Retail investors Dozens of media Thousands of retail platforms investors 3 Companies that have over $5 mn in assets or individuals that have a net worth of over $1 mn, or that have consistently made over $200,000 per year in income. 08

The undoubtable advantage of this market is relatively easy access to all of its participants. There is no need to overcome a client’s knowledge gaps, since all market participants are highly motivated and it is in their own interests to be ultimately collaborative. Investment funds are a good example of transparent customers universe. The current list of active market participants includes 750+ investors (~400 VC and private equity funds, as well as at least 350 crypto hedge funds) [1] and hundreds of projects [2]. Competitive landscape There is a significant interest in and obvious utility of high-quality OTC market data, but there is no platform that addresses all investor requirements. Thus, Silverway is the only platform on the market providing institutional grade data on OTC markets for private round tokens. There still some of the business (including key market participants) operating in contiguous business niche and we provide their overview as well as overview of Silverway’s unique capabilities. Hundreds of exchanges that trade only listed tokens and derivatives A large number of OTC brokers/desks that trade liquid crypto and crypto/fiat pairs4 Fundraising platforms used for primary token sales Platforms for whales and syndicating pools to participate in a limited number of private sales5 OTC Telegram/Wechat/QQ brokers 4 Some of the publicly available lists of OTC desks: the first compilation on Reddit [https://www.reddit.com/r/BitcoinMarkets/comments/7unl0s], a list of bitcoin brokers and liquidity providers by the CME Group [https://www.cmegroup.com/trading/bitcoin-brokers-and-block-liquidity-providers.html], and a list of OTC brokers by SFOX [https://blog.sfox.com/13-bitcoin-otc-brokers-you-need-to-know-67755a1d4ccc]. 5 A list of ICO pools for Q4 2018 can be found here [https://hackernoon.com/the-ultimate-list-of-ico-pools-in-the-bear-market-q4-2018-81ffc4df5a9b]. 09

The demand for a new OTC service paradigm is also supported by the increasing number of OTC desks launched by crypto asset exchanges in recent months, despite the bearish market [23]. These include such projects as Coinbase Prime [28], Poloniex [26], and Huobi OTC. The latest to jump on the OTC bandwagon in 2019 were Bittrex [29], Bithumb’s Ortus, and Coincheck [27]. Circle Trade, founded in February 2018, was one of the earliest OTC platforms and trades a “very limited” selection of cryptocurrencies “aligned” to its “regulatory licensure" [7]. However, in 2018 Circle executed 10,000 OTC trades with 600 different counterparties with a total volume of $24 bn [25]. 10

Silverway leverages its unique founding team experience to enter into a market segment that hasn’t yet been rationalized or penetrated by an institutional player. The private token sale market often has a high entry threshold: many projects prefer to deal with large funds [30]. Therefore, a lot of professional investors have limited access to private sale rounds and are looking to buy private sale tokens, sometimes with significant premiums. Taking into account the nature of the market and the very fast-changing environment presented by both the market overall and by particular projects, buyers are looking for access to the best-performing projects (e.g. the projects which are close to TGE or mainnet launch). On the other hand, many investors are also looking for ways to sell their locked tokens in order to realize price premiums, get additional liquidity to diversify their portfolios, or just cash out faster. Thus, all counterparties are inherently interested in secure direct deals without redundant intermediaries. 11

Revenue streams Fees for access via API Fees and fixed payments for access to the platform’s full functionality Subscription fees Payments for additional services Tailored reports Community incentives 21

Tokenomics The Silverway token is used for fee payment, plus additional platform purchases and subscriptions. Silverway token is both ERC20 and BEP2 token, launched on Ethereum and Binance Chain. You can swap Silverway token from ERC20 to BEP2 to trade on Binance DEX. The token ties the platform’s services together and allows Silverway’s investors to leverage platform growth, as tokens are burned when they are used for fees or services, contracting the supply and driving the price up. Token usage Currently, there are three planned main uses for the SLV token: Fees and fixed payments for access to the platform’s full functionality Payments for the additional services Community incentives Fees for access via API Subscription fees Tailored reports Main channels of value transfer anbd all economic interactions between the platform and its users are depicted on the next diagram. 22

Token utility value All fees and service payments may be performed in the user’s currency of choice. However, users are incentivized to use SLV tokens, as in the case of fees and Proof-of-Intent payments. The discounts diminish quadratically over time, providing an additional incentive to use tokens as fast as possible. To simplify the discount calculation for platform users, the initial quadratic function is replaced with a closely-resembling step function: -- Year 1 — 50% -- Year 2 — 28% -- Year 3 — 14% -- Year 4 — 5.5% -- Year 5 and beyond — 5% Token burning and value Every time a token is redeemed, the smart contract burns a fixed percentage of the redeemed sum, while the rest is passed on to Silverway. This mechanism ensures that token value is dependent on platform usage. To protect the platform’s users against volatility, prices are set either in common currencies (for services/Proof-of-Intent) or percentages of the total sum (for fees), and then recalculated into platform tokens. Therefore, token dynamics may be expressed by the following system: Where: The burn rate is set to constant values, which will be determined at a later time, subject to change by a decision by the board of directors. Essentially, at each period the amount of SLV earned by the platform is equal to: while the token valuation is simply a reserve rate-discounted sum of all upsides (service and fee discounts) that token holders can receive over the platform’s lifecycle. 23

Token distribution Ticker: SLV Smart contract: https://etherscan.io/token/ 0x4c1c4957d22d8f373aed54d0853b090666f6f9de Total supply: 1000 mn SLV Minting: no Distribution: 10% - Early investors/exchanges 20% - Reserve 45% - Marketing & BD 25% -- Team 1. 12 mn cliff, after that - linear unlock of tokens by 24th month since the listing; 2. 5% of tokens to be unlocked in 1st month, 24% - linear unlock from the 9th month to the 12th month, after that - linear unlock of the remaining tokens by 24th month since the listing; 3. 100% unlocked in case of contingency; 4. 3% of tokens to be listed, 2% - to be unlocked in the 1st month, 5% - to be unlocked from the 9th month to 12th month. Use of funds 50% of the funds will be used to build the Silverway platform and perform upgrades to the system, which includes team recruitment (in North America Europe, and Asia), training, and the development budget. 35% will be used for SLV branding and marketing. The platform’s long-term success requires a sufficient budget for various advertising activities, to drive Silverway’s popularity with investors, and to attract active users to the platform. 15% will be reserved in case of unforeseen circumstances or expenses. The planned tokenomics, use of funds and the token distribution schedule may be partially or significantly changed over the course of the project development. 24
