Crypto investors, just like investors in any other financial discipline, seek the highest and quickest possible return on their investment. In the crypto-world, payouts are usually made in tokens, which are distributed to investors after the ICO is finished.
The problem is, the period between the end of the ICO and the actual arrival of the tokens can be lengthy, up to several weeks in some cases. This poses a problem for investors, as they cannot trade the tokens they purchased or earned during the ICO. Also, tokens can sometimes take an inordinate amount of time appearing on exchanges.
Bdaq hopes to bridge this gap, enabling investors to trade their tokens even before tokens are listed on exchanges.
Bdaq: trade your tokens as soon as you get them
ICOs and tokens are inextricably linked. One could argue that tokens are an ICO’s lifeblood. But sometimes, this lifeblood takes too long to trickle back to the investors, depriving them of the means to profit from their investment.
Currently, an ICO distributes tokens back to investors weeks, even months after the end of the initial token sale. And even after the investor gets the token, they must wait until the token is listed on an exchange before trading can begin.
What Bdaq are doing here is creating a platform where investors will be able to trade their tokens as soon as they receive them, rather than having to wait until the tokens are listed on exchanges.
How it all works
The concept behind Bdaq specifies that token owners will be able to access the platform as soon as an ICO concludes and place Sell Requests.
At this point, whitelisted investors can access the platform and either place Buy Requests, or answer to any outstanding Sell Requests.
A proprietary algorithm will run in the background to identify and inform the most suitable investors about the Sell Requests, in a process dubbed Smart Investors Match. Consult the whitepaper for more details.

Social media presence and digital footprint

Bdaq offers a rather niche and unique proposition. No other ICO currently fields similar functionality. This puts Bdaq at a great advantage, as its pioneering value will be a first on the blockchain.
Consult the Bdaq Whitepaper for more information about the platform, additional features and services, etc.
Enabling investors to trade their tokens before they are listed on exchanges is a neat idea that bridges a glaring gap in the market.
By allowing investors to do this, liquidity flows quicker, which in turn may prompt further investment and a further acceleration in the market.
This ICO’s efforts may be hampered by its almost non-existent reach on social media, which is something the company will need to work on pronto, if they are to succeed.
Bdaq’s leading position in the market deserves a closer look.
