xSigma Announces Its Fund and ETF-like Decentralized Platform – Bitcoin News Press Release

PRESS RELEASE. ZK International Group Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: ZKIN) (“ZKIN“,”ZK International“Or the“ Company ”, a designer, engineer, manufacturer, and supplier of patented high performance stainless steel and carbon steel pipe products used primarily for water and gas supplies, is pleased to announce its decentralized fund and platform similar to ETFs, which is DeFi’s second project in the xSigma ecosystem. Project website: https://xsigma-etf.com.

The announced ETF-like protocol will be a decentralized fund based on the Ethereum blockchain, which will diversify between large crypto assets related to the DeFi space. In addition, it will provide a platform that will enable others to create indexes and will be branded and called xTF by xSigma.

The decentralized smart contract application (DApp) is expected to act as an index of the major DeFi tokens, allowing crypto investors to capitalize on the overall growth of a broader DeFi market share, and potentially reduce transaction risks and costs. XTF by xSigma is also expected to allow others to create decentralized ETF-like funds on their own with just a few clicks. It will allow organizations and individuals to create their own indices, attract capital and earn trading fees and cost ratios. The fees can be configured, and various business models can be implemented. Finally, the platform is expected to turn into a market or aggregator of various indexes.

Indexes will be presented in the form of tokens published on the Ethereum blockchain. Consumers will be able to buy or issue ETF-like tokens using ETH. Giving tickets means increasing the size of the fund and more assets need to be added to the fund. Withdrawing money from the capital requires burning by the amount of tickets. Crucially, all those who engage with the DApp will retain control of their crypto assets (eg Ethereum) and will be able to deposit assets into the DApp and withdraw from the DApp at their discretion by use their own crypto asset wallets.

The DeFi industry now has crypto value all over it $ 21 billion locked in large protocols, according to the DeFi Pulse website. XSigma is now targeting the DeFi space with two projects: the DeFi protocol (stablecoin DEX) and the xTF-like xTigma protocol that has just been announced by xSigma. The ultimate goal of xSigma is to build an ecosystem of products for finance and blockchain.

Mr. Jiancong Huang, Chairman and CEO ZK International, he said, “We are pleased to announce that xSigma now has two projects in the DeFi space. We look forward to bringing innovation to the blockchain and finance industries with the xSigma team. “

The release of the xTF by xSigma is scheduled for the second quarter in 2021, and technical details will be revealed soon. XSigma expects to generate fees from the operation of the fund in the future. The project will not be a regulated financial product, and the xSigma team will not have access to digital assets deposited in the DApp.

Some elements of the platform protocol cannot be moved while others are subject to revision in accordance with the votes of a devolved autonomous organization (DAO) that will govern key decisions in relation to the protocol. Voting must be done using governing tickets which will be ERC-20 tickets issued automatically by the protocol, in accordance with the terms of the protocol. As a utility sign, such governing tickets will not be registered with any securities regulator or other regulatory body. XSigma expressly rejects any comments regarding the actual or projected value of tokens issued on any of its DeFi protocols; they need not be of any value at all because it is a DAO governance signal.

The protocol is not an ETF, in the conventional sense of the term; it is not registered, licensed or regulated by any regulatory or governing body. Instead, the protocol will be a smart contract issued to the Ethereum blokchain that is open to anyone to explore and engage with as they wish. More details of the protocol will be discussed in a white paper to be published by xSigma before the protocol is launched.
