➡️Part 1: Project Introduction.
Q1. Could you briefly introduce yourself as well as your project?
Hi there! I’m Hayden Hughes, the Co-Founder and CEO of Alpha Impact. Before starting this company with my Co-Founder and CPTO Austin Chaird, I became a lawyer before working in crypto in 2017. From 2017 – 2020 I worked as Head of Distribution for Techemy, a regulated investment bank focusing on crypto and blockchain. Immediately before co-founding Alpha Impact I was actually working at Crypto.com, where I led Institutional Sales in Singapore.

I have previously founded 3 companies and this includes 1 exit in my native Canada in my mid 20s. I’m excited to build new businesses!

VIETNAMESE: https://t.me/alphaimpact_fi_VN

My Co-Founder Austin has spent 15 years in banking technology, working as a Vice President where he designed trading systems for banks and hedge funds when he worked for JPMorgan and Macquarrie Bank.

Q2. What makes the Alpha Impact project stand out more than the projects in the same direction at the moment?
Let's face it, there are a lot of social trading platforms. Unlike platforms such as Etoro, our platform is fully non-custodial. This means customers never need to trust us with their funds. We give customers access to top traders without having to worry about safety of funds.

The second aspect we're excited about is that our platform allows you to find a top trader that's just right for you. Our job is not to tell you which investment strategy to use. Whether you want to go margin long DOGEcoin and take risk, or whether you are looking for a lower risk, lower return, we allow clients to sort top traders by ROI but also by consistency.

Third, we're really wanting to build a stable, long term business for the good of the nation. That's why we chose to set up in Singapore, a country with a stable legal system as well as a very friendly set of regulations towards cryptocurrencies. We're excited to have you along with us for the journey and can't wait to talk more

Q3. What are the memorable milestones of Alpha Impact in the research and development process?
1. The first piece of research we did was to identify what our users really care about. The feedback was overwhelming from our clients, that people want to have many choices of investing strategies.

2. We are allowing many choices of investment strategies by offering different types of investments: spot trading, options, margin trading, leveraged tokens, and many other types.

3. The next piece of exciting news came when we finalized our private sale. We've been very grateful to have support from our investors and Nikkei even wrote about us! https://asia.nikkei.com/Spotlight/DealStreetAsia/Singapore-crypto-copy-trade-platform-raises-3m-ahead-of-launch

4. The IDO will be happening on May 27th! To find out which IDO platform we are going on and to request to join the Whitelist, please join us on Telegram


Q4. What does Alpha Impact plan to do to attract more users in the upcoming time?
Attracting users is very important for us. First and foremost, we are building our platform to democratize crypto trading FOR EVERYONE. NOT JUST RICH PEOPLE.

This is very important for us. User adoption comes from our social media channels, from our Alpha Impact Academy where customers can complete educational tasks and earn crypto, as well as our detailed portfolio management tools that are better than what exchanges offer.

TO engage more users we will continue to host trading competitions to show our users the high quality of top traders on our platform. After all, clients get to choose the investor to copy that works for them.

➡️Part 2: Question From Twitter (5 best questions).
Q1: @g76974594
Your project is very important but it needs a large user traffic to be sustainable over time. What marketing strategies do you have planned to increase the validity of your brand?Are you planning a strategic partnership to level up your project?
We’re excited to be partnering with an amazing platform who will soon be launching our IDO. Feel free to join us at this link to find out which one: https://bit.ly/3o5Cwu1

IN terms of partnerships we are super excited to be partnering with both Genesis Block and LuneX Ventures on the investment side. We are also about to announce (in the coming weeks) partnerships with exchanges, wallet providers, and staking providers. One of the most exciting functionalities I wanted to share is that our project will also feature a Liquidity Mining Pool, meaning that we’re excited to partner with you – the community – to add liquidity to our market pairs.

Finally I also wanted to mention that we’re backed by Antler, a global VC that has invested in some of the most promising start ups worldwide: https://twitter.com/MagnusGrimeland/status/1386586639556915206?s=20
One of the core marketing strategies we are pursuing is going after the 85% of the market who does not yet have crypto. Through our real world investor relationships, IDO platforms, and educational programs including ‘Alpha Impact Academy’ where customers can complete educational tasks and earn crypto, we aim to present an easy first step for first time crypto investors.

Q2: @SteveJo37818340
I heard you announced that Alpha Impact has just closed its funding round, led by LuneX Ventures, Genesis Block HK and the undisclosed HFT company, how was that result? is it in accordance with your target? how many supplies were sold?
This is a great question, Steve!

Our fund was actually led by many amazing investors:
LuneX Ventures
Genesis Block Ventures (HK)
Solidity Ventures
Moonwhale Ventures
Bigcoin Vietnam
Spark Capital
Spark Digital Ventures
And many investors from trading firms, government agencies and friends/family! We’re grateful to receive everyone’s support.
Our investor traction was picked up by our friends at Nikkei, feel free to take a look: Singapore crypto copy-trade platform raises $3m ahead of launch - Nikkei Asia
We hit our target, and sold out our entire private sale allocation, roughly 15% of the 424,000,000 total token supply.

Q3: @HongQuangt9
Alpha Impact is also building a portfolio performance tool to help users monitor their progress so how does this performance tool work & what can users monitor with it & how can users access the performance tool?
Great question @HongQuangt9! We’re actually building this platform for the 85% of people who are not already in crypto. We imagine ourselves as a social media platform that has trading functionality. Traders will be heavily incentivized with our token to produce engaging content which means that they will share not only their trading, but also the REASON and STRATEGY behind each trade. Second, we’re building our academy which will reward traders with cryptocurrency for participating tasks to learn about crypto. Third, we’re building out a ‘funny money’ functionality where novice traders can trade a fake portfolio before moving on to the real thing.

The portfolio tracker allows you to track your performance over time (TWR), allocation of coins, your trades executed, real time telegram alerts from traders you follow. Post and comment about trader talk.
Unlike exchanges which only provide trading history, our portfolio tracker tool uses a Time Weighted Return method. What this means is that when you make withdrawals or deposits into your account, our performance tracking adjusts for this, changing the numerator and the denominator for the profit calculation. Finally, a portfolio tracker that removes the need for manual calculation!
In addition to TWR, the portfolio tracker shows you your allocation of coins (% in each token), your trading history, as well as sending optional telegram alerts when a trader you are following makes a trade. In addition to these amazing functions you can also like, share and interact with others socially.

Q4: @Hasanmahmu98
To be a great platform for both investors and its' users, transparency and security is important. Can you tell us some details about your transparency (like team members) and your security mechanisms? Have you already completed an audit of your platform?
To be a great platform for both investors and its' users, transparency and security is important. Can you tell us some details about your transparency (like team members) and your security mechanisms? Have you already completed an audit of your platform?
Sure! We’re super transparent and you can learn more about us on our Telegram page! https://t.me/alphaimpact_fi
If you’re still hungry, here’s my and my co-founder Austin’s LinkedIn:
Regarding our security, I am actually under NDA for several partnerships we have and for the details of how we keep our systems safe, but I can share some details.
First and foremost I wanted to make it clear that our system never has access to the funds of our customers. Funds always stay in your own exchange account so no one, not even our engineers, have access to your funds.
Secondly, we do use your API key which we hold safely. Our team of engineers is led by Austin, a 15 year experienced banking technologist who has previously held high level roles at some of the world’s largest investment banks, including JP Morgan Chase and Macquarie Bank.
We also realized that it was important to onboard a dedicated cyber security advisor, Adrian Chung, who has spent the past 20 years building cyber security systems for some of the largest technology companies in APAC.

Q5: @Uikopa
Could you please tell me the ultimate goal of ALPHA IMPACT ? What are your plans to reach out a vast majority of users, both inside and outside the crypto space ? Are there any community events to attract more members and raise the project's awareness ?
This is a really big year for us. We’re launching our token on a popular IDO platform on May 27th – in 16 days! We’re really excited to share which platform we will be launching on! To find out which platform we’re launching on, please click here: https://bit.ly/3o5Cwu1

Aside from token launch, we’re excited to be launching our world first SIGNALS MINING program, where we will be offering a reward for the top performing trader, as well as the MOST CONSISTENT TRADER. We’re the first trading competition in the world to reward traders who consistently perform, because we recognize that not everyone has the same investing style.
After signals mining we’ll be launching copy trading! We will offer manual copy trading where you’ll receive a notification prompting you to execute a trade to copy your top trader, and then automatic copy trading where you can simply set and forget.
In terms of community events, we’re restricted by social distancing regulations at the moment but we look forward to staying in touch with the community on our social media channels! Please check them out below:

In terms of innovations, we're also very excited about the fact that our platform is NOT JUST FOR RICH PEOPLE. This platform will give the same investing power to someone with $25 as with $25M.

Q2: What geographic market is Alpha Impact currently focused on?
Great question! At this stage we're focusing on Singapore, Southeast Asia and beyond! IN 2022 we may consider European markets.

Q3: In decentralization, We all know that speed is needed, as is the current problem faced by the expensive Eth Gas Fee and the slowing of the transaction process. what are your plans to deal with this problem on Alpha Impact ?
Our platform will initially connect with CEX exchanges which mitigates the gas fees, but moreover we are building smart contracts later in the roadmap to allow ON CHAIN SOCIAL TRADING

Q4: What are your plans on GLOBAL adoption? Which country is presently focused on ??
Focused on Singapore first, but then Southeast Asia including Vietnam!

Yeild farming is a new trending so do you have any plan to yeild farming system development?
Our liquidity pool will also allow people who hold our token to deposit $IMPACT into the LP on Uniswap and earn a yield. We’re excited to announce that we’ve devoted 30% of our token supply to this!
