Tiberius Coin ( TCX) - A crypto-financial hybrid ERC-20 Token
The Tiberius Coin grants the holder direct ownership of a special basket of metals, chosen for their
unique industrial applications to future technology and commodity growth sectors. The Tiberius
Coin is comprised of both a digital (crypto) and physical (metal) component, where the link
between the two is maintained by Tiberius, but decentralized through the use of independent
service providers. The holder of a token can take delivery of the underlying metal, which supports
the minimum price of the token and grants full transparency. The integrity of our network is
maintained by rational economic principals, which are a consequence of using competing service
providers, warehouses, and auditors. Put simply: our coin can never hit zero and we are
Take the first step in profiting from the metal markets being unlocked to the retail investor
through the power of the blockchain. Like never before, tap into an exciting basket of technology
metals which have been uniquely selected to leverage strategic commodity growth themes.
A crypto-financial hybrid
Human prosperity in its very essence is derived from technology’s ability to create value. Over US$
32 trillion of new economic growth will be unleashed by technologies such as advanced robotics
and AI (+US$ 11tn), IoT and cloud technology (+US$ 12tn), and autonomous electric vehicles
(+US$ 4.5tn). Look to the future and you see that growth and technology are intertwined and
unstoppable. Everyday devices are becoming “smarter”, technology is becoming more integrated
and wearable, and it’s all made of metal.
Technology is metal, and metal is the Tiberius Coin. It sits at the intersection of cryptocurrencies
and traditional financial markets, pioneering the realm of commodities-backed tokens.
The Tiberius Coin grants direct ownership of metal which is held in Tiberius custody on behalf of
the token holder. The metal can be physically delivered in exchange for the tokens, providing the
Tiberius Coin with an intrinsic value and therefore a price floor. An identical and static basket of
metal underlies each Tiberius Coin - so each token is alike and equivalent (fungible).
The Tiberius Coin basket of metals
The Tiberius Coin (“T-Coin”) is the first crypto-financial product which grants you direct ownership
to our basket of strategic metals that are key to future technologies. The metal is held and
audited by independent warehouses, and available for delivery upon request. Every token can
be thought of as a digital identification for the ownership of:
Technology metals: 25g copper, 5g tin
Electric Vehicle metals: 25g aluminium, 6g nickel, 1g cobalt
Stability metals: 3mg gold, 1.5mg platinum
We are conducting an Initial Metals Sale (“IMS”), and not an Initial Coin Offering (“ICO”). Unlike an
ICO, we are not selling a product for far-dated delivery or crowdfunding on behalf of product
development. We are selling metal within a fully developed legal, regulatory, and technological
Technology metals: the most profitable step in the value chain
Everyone agrees that technology is unstoppable but investing in companies can be risky because
competition means that a stock can go to zero. Even in cases where there is a clear commodity
theme, like the inevitability of Electric Vehicles, how can you choose the right investment? There
are so many companies competing in the space, even analysts on Wall Street find it impossible to
predict which will be the clear winner. Stocks are a relatively risky way to get exposure to any trend.
By their very nature, emerging technologies need to be better or cheaper in order to win market
share. Profit margins shrink for investors in companies like Tesla due to the need to engineer some
level of cost parity for Electric Vehicles relative to regular automobiles. In cases like this, it is the
shareholder who takes the hit, not the consumer.
Natural resource companies are also not the best way to benefit from technology growth trends.
Mining companies are usually controlled by emerging market governments which are known to
seize a large part of the profit margin.
All the technology metals in our basket have been chosen to benefit from a strategic commodity
theme and all, with the exception of gold, have industrial uses and therefore will always command
some intrinsic value. The underlying metal basket can be delivered on request, which creates aprice
floor to the token.
The Tiberius Coin will list under the ticker TCX. The exact price of the token at Initial Metals Sale
depends on the price of the metal at that date, but the intrinsic value of the basket is close to
CHF 0.70 at the time of writing.
THE TIBERIUS COIN SOLUTION
The problem with cryptocurrency markets
Cryptocurrencies may have no intrinsic value – so asset-backed coins make sense – but the main
problem is that they’re just too volatile and highly correlated. It doesn’t matter how many
different cryptocurrencies you own, when prices fall it is like you hold just one in your portfolio.
Diversification is hard to find. The reason why all coins plummet together (correlation and volatility)
is that there is simply not enough crypto-to-fiat liquidity during a market panic. You can trade
Bitcoin, Ethereum, and a few other cryptocurrencies against only a handful of fiat currencies.
When this happens, the panic selling is the same as being in a crowd where everyone is pushing
to exit through the same door. This panic is called “illiquidity”.
TIBERIUS COIN USES IN ADDITION TO BEING AN INVESTMENT PRODUCT
Currency Risk in Emerging Markets like Turkey and Argentina
Currency risk is one of the greatest issues associated with living in an emerging market nation.
Not only is wealth disparity crippling low-income populations around the world, but serious
issues surrounding wealth erosion compound low living standards and inequality. It is sovereign
credit issues which drive this destruction of value, with the “decentralization of value” in the form
of Bitcoin being borne just months after nothing less than the US housing credit crisis of the
Commodities in consumer finance
A little inflation is healthy for the economy, it means that asset prices are rising. However, run-away inflation in countries such as Venezuela (approaching 1 million percent), Argentina (c. 40%), and Turkey (c. 15%), means that prices of everything from food to medicine are far outpacing any real economic growth. Inflation becomes a problem when prices are rising but wages aren’t.
Commodities as inflation protection
Commodities are, in their very essence, an inflation protection. The price of a metal in the long run,
simplistically, can be thought of as being close to the cost of production. When prices rise due to
inflation, it drives up the costs of producing the commodities. As a result of higher wages, more
expensive mining equipment, and the costs associated with digging minerals out of the earth, as
per the definition of inflation, the price of the metal increases.
In the 23 emerging market countries which have annual inflation rates in excess of 10%, it is clear
that it pays to hold the Tiberius Coin. Tiberius wants to help disrupt consumer finance for millions
of people by combining the power of commodities and the blockchain as a savings tool.
Why Tiberius Coin is an ICO Worth Checking Out
There’s a serious issue with cryptocurrency initial coin offering (ICO) burnout. Every day, countless tokens launch an ICO, many of which often never amount to anything.
The barrier to entry is so low, making it easy for scammers to try and launch a new token as a modern get-rich quick scheme. Yet, for all the bad tokens that make it through, there are still diamonds in the rough to be found.
Tiberius Coin is one of those diamonds in the rough.
Dubbed the “metal coin” by its 12,000+ user Telegram community, Tiberius Coin is the world’s first legitimate asset-backed token. Unlike other crypto companies, Tiberius is led by an established commodities firm, with over 30 years in the industry, that is familiar with the intricacies of such an established sector. They also have the likes of legendary crypto pioneer Philip Zimmermann working with them as their Chief Scientist and Security Officer.
The idea is simple, but innovative.
Rather than create another crypto with no real value like most options on the market, they have created a metal-backed token that can be traded, redeemed for actual metal, and used as a reliable investment vehicle.
Tiberius Coin is not a shot in the dark either. The company spent years developing a tech-focused strategy that includes several notable tech and electric vehicle metals. These metals include:
- Aluminum (25g)
- Copper (25g)
- Tin (5g)
- Nickel (6g)
- Cobalt (1g)
- Gold (3mg)
- Platinum (1.5mg)
Both the overall tech and electric vehicles industries were selected as they are viewed as the major driver of innovation going forward, while gold and platinum were chosen to add extra stability to the token.
Because the token can be redeemed for the underlying metal, it cannot go to zero like most other cryptocurrencies can. The metal markets are far too big, too established, and there is simply too much demand for that to happen. Companies like Microsoft, Apple, Samsung, Nvidia, and Tesla need raw materials to manufacture their core products.
A Token with Real World Value
Tiberius Coins will have countless uses. Large commodities firms will be able to trade them to track the market, small investors will have the opportunity to take part in metals trading, traders will have arbitrage opportunities, and large corporations will be able stockpile raw materials that they need to manufacture products.
Even investors in countries with unstable economies can benefit from the real world applications provided by the Tiberius Coin. As it stands, this token will provide much-needed stability in countries like Argentina, Venezuela, and Turkey, who are experiencing inflation crises.
Regardless of an individual’s investment strategy, Tiberius Coin provides investors with direct access to the lucrative metals markets, a market that is almost guaranteed to beat inflation every year.
A Safer, Less Volatile Investment
There are many reasons to invest in Tiberius Coin over other traditional cryptocurrencies. The key takeaway you need to understand is that Tiberius Coin is a less volatile investment. We’ve all seen Bitcoin plunge over 50% from its Q1 2018 highs. Recovery doesn’t look promising as of yet.
In contrast, Tiberius Coin isn’t subject to these kind of violent movements because it is directly tied to the massive metal markets. These markets aren’t affected by this kind of volatility, they move with inflation, and they are the catalyst that fuels the technology revolution.
Another common theme in the crypto markets is transparency. We’ve all seen the massive scams that plague this industry. From the likes of Mt. Gox imploding and stealing Bitcoins, to the BitConnect fiasco that is still fresh in our minds.
When regulation is absent, scam cultures are able to flourish. This isn’t something the cryptocurrency markets want to be known for. Instead, more tokens should be embracing regulation.
The answer is simple.
More regulation means more stability and more stability means increased transparency. All of these things are good for individual cryptocurrencies and their investors.
The company behind Tiberius Coin embraces regulation because they come from an industry that is heavily regulated. They know exactly what regulation means, how to follow established regulations, and how to offer a product that is safe and stable for its investors.
The company worked diligently to produce a legal framework that is rock solid. They did this because they understood the importance of protecting both themselves and their investors.
Simplifying Access to Complex Financial Tools
With so many dubious development teams cashing in on the ICO movement, Tiberius Coin is a rare opportunity that more investors need to be aware of.
Unlike in the 2008 financial crisis, where large financial institutions focused on creating complex financial products that no one understood, Tiberius Coin is focusing on simplifying access to complex financial tools.
The company is committed to using the blockchain to democratize access to complex financial tools. Commodities trading is a massive industry and one that many retail investors typically have little access to.
Tiberius Coin is working to change that.
By simplifying commodities trading, contracts, and the entire process, retail investors will now have the opportunity to take part in the tech sector growth story through the raw materials that will power it.
