Idea & token
Answering the existing conflict between traditional financial institutions and cryptocurrencies, CyberTrust pitches the idea of creating a securitized token that, essentially, takes the functions of a custodian bank for cryptocurrencies. CABS, an ERC-20 token, will allow users to buy and hold cryptocurrency derivatives. Accredited investors will be able to use CABS in order to securitize major cryptocurrencies (rates being much lower than those of competitors). It’s worth noting that the broader public is prioritized over institutional investors or professional traders. The token cap is set at 600,000 tokens, with a base price of 0,6 ETH per token (which is approximately $225 at today’s rates).
CyberTrust have assembled a very impressive team, headed by CEO Scott Freeman, known for his involvement with many prestigious banks, as well as the man running the C2CX cryptocurrency exchange, which is in the top 30 by overall trade volume. Also on the team is Bill Delahunt, former US Representative for Massachusetts’ 10th congressional district. Experts on the CyberTrust team include IT specialists, financial experts and legal experts. An excellent arrangement of varied high level experience.
Largely the decision on whether or not to support CyberTrust can be tied to one’s personal beliefs in terms of the fate of cryptocurrencies. After all, the project does intend to bring cryptocurrency within the purview of more traditional banking. What would that do to decentralized, unregulated markets? Regardless, as an ICO CyberTrust is a solid project and is certainly among the most promising ones on the market today. If you have faith in securitization and believe that cryptocurrencies need to be part of it, then CyberTrust is an outstanding project standing by those beliefs.

CyberTrust ICO datesexport to calend
CyberTrust securities crypto assets such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and others. This enables institutional investors to take advantage of crypto markets since the resulting derivatives have a titled security claim to the underlying asset. Investors gain exposure to crypto asset price movements via a traditional investment vehicle but do not face the challenges that buying and safekeeping crypto assets entail. Crypto-Asset Backed Securitised Tokens (CABS) have been created by CyberTrust to fuel the securitisation process, with the sale of these tokens leading to the creation of a new crypto derivative market. How does the project create value to the ecosystem and differs from competing projects? The only thing comparable to our project is Grayscale, but Grayscale is only a crypto fund, whereas our platform will allow for the creation of derivative crypto-financial products that currently do not exist. This will facilitate increased interest in cryptocurrency investment from large investment funds (institutional investors), thereby leading to an increase in the market capitalisation of crypto assets.
