AMA Recap: CRYPTO MINERS X BAANX

Baanx offers fully managed services — a branded, fully managed bespoke digital asset friendly Cryptodraft & staking platform; compliance, regulatory, licensed technology and support all included. Baanx.com Ltd is listed on the temporary registration regime for crypto asset businesses with the FCA and is part of Baanx Group Ltd, operating Fintech services which utilise an EMI license. Baanx US Corp owns part of a US Bank for services. This allows Baanx entities to supply crypto-friendly services such as Cryptodraft to those that hold the BXX token. Partners include:
1- Tezos Crypto Life App, for the Tezos foundation
2- A large corporate community based in Asia who will be getting Cryptodraft and China Union Pay crypto friendly physical & virtual cards, with remittance.
3- The world’s largest hardware wallet system with cards, Cryptodraft (our crypto swap product — creating free liquidity) and other services.
Baanx (US, UK & EEA entities) now works with the leading global digital asset corporate brands to enable secure crypto-friendly services — launching our user inspired products to their engaged communities: including interest free Cryptodraft (not yet in the UK, Cryptodraft is not a regulated loan), high rate savings for staking digital assets, global remittance, and the ability to spend digital blockchain based assets directly on Visa, China Union Pay, and other schemes, physical and virtual cards.

We hosted an AMA session with Baanx on 15th June.

Mr. Ramsy was the host from Crypto Miners and Mr. Keiron was the guest. He shared delightful knowledge and unique features of Baanx.

Segment 1️⃣: Introduction

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
Hello everyone 👋 Welcome to the Crypto Miners AMA session With Baanx

To help us learn more about the featured project of this AMA session, we are lucky to be joined By Mr Kieron

Kieron Cartledge:
Hello

How is everyone?

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
We’re good 🤝

Kieron Cartledge:
Excellent!! 👌

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
What about you?

Kieron Cartledge:
Im fantastic, very busy with some exciting project and launches 🚀 that im super keen to tell everyone here about!

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
I’m pretty sure that our Community is very much excited to learn more about Baanx ✌️

So let’s get started, Shall we?

Kieron Cartledge:
Lets GOOOO!

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
First of all Please give us a brief explanation about ‘Baanx’ .What popped up in your mind to create such a platform in this Space?

Kieron Cartledge:
Baanx is a crypto-as-a-service fintech platform.

We manage all the services for our B2B and B2C customers. Our mission is to bring regulated products to unregulated crypto communities — better than traditional financial services: cards, Cryptodraft/Stableloan (‘free money against your digital assets’), loyalty, fiat on/off ramps, and wallets. Baanx operates globally, in particular in the UK and Europe, with a launch in the US planned with large partner communities including Ledger, Tezos, Reef, Akoin and other customers. Many of our services are all powered by our token — BXX.

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
Thanks Kieron for this fantastic Start about Baanx 👌

Now let’s see our second question from this segment

Kieron Cartledge:
Lets do it.

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
Q2) So what are your main features and advantages that discern you from other Projects?

Kieron Cartledge:
That is a great question! 😱

I am sure you will all agree that there is a gap between the fiat and crypto world. We bridge this gap by allowing users to spend crypto seamlessly on physical Visa and Mastercard.

We also have fiat on/off ramps, remittance, secured lending against digital assets and other services. These are all designed to make buying, selling, and spending crypto and digital assets as easy as using fiat.

I think we are unique in the market, and have some advantages for users and crypto communities:

1) Faster than a bank — secured lending will be approved and money will be in your account/on a physical or virtual card in less than minutes. Assets are backed by customers’ digital assets, so this is secured lending. 🚀

2) No need for background checks for lending once the user has been onboarded. Once they are officially a user, no additional checks or fees are required to get a loan. Put simply, this is ‘one click’ lending. 📃

3) 10% LTV for BTC for free. LTV = Loan to Value. Example: for every $10,000 in wallet, we will lend $1,000 interest-free. (10% of asset we hold) 💵

4) Cheaper — 0% interest rates when staking BXX. If they hold BXX, we will lend up to 50% LTV. ☑️

5) We charge some of the lowest load and transfer fees, and we do not charge remittance fees. 💰

6) Another key element is accountability. Baanx is taking responsibility — we are listed on the temporary register for crypto assets under the FCA regime, access to EMIs, and a consumer lending licence in the UK. 💎

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
Q3) How has the experience and background of your team been effective in the success of your project so far?

Kieron Cartledge:
Of course i can #BXXtoTheMoon

BXX is the native token of Baanx and its ecosystem.

Let’s move to our last question from this segment

Q5) So how long did it take to develop this project? What plans do you have for the future? And what can we expect from Baanx If possible could you please share road map with us.

Kieron Cartledge:
We have 3 main priorities right now for 2022.

1) Keep growing the utility of BXX and its community.

2) Launch the full Ledger and Tezos rollout — UK, EEA and USA.

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
Thanks Kieron for this well detailed introduction about Baanx:)

And that’s the wrap up of our the first part of the AMA session ✅

Kieron Cartledge:
you’re more than welcome 🙂

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
Let’s now proceed to our Twitter Questions section

Kieron Cartledge:
I think the next section is my favourite 🐦

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
i hope you’re ready for that!!

Kieron Cartledge:
I am….

Segment 2️⃣: Twitter Questions

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
1) I saw that one of BAANX’s products that users are most excited about is something called “CL Card”, so, can you give us more details about this upcoming product? What will this CL Card be and how will it work? What benefits will users get from it? When do you plan to release it?

Kieron Cartledge:
Great question 😊

The CL card powered by Ledger product offers a variety of cardholder benefits, including seamless crypto spending with instant conversion to fiat at the time of purchase and up to 2% cashback on monthly spendings. Users can also access a Flexible Cryptodraft and Stableloan, with rates starting at 0%.

Additionally, we’re also planning on launching a crypto Paycheck feature, which will be announced soon. 📄

We are also planning to release the CL app, which gives users the ability to access a variety of features, all in one platform. Users can save on their crypto, stake BXX tokens, set up cashback and borrow a line of stablecoin credit while using their crypto as collateral. 📱

I would say that the product should be released in the market within next month. First it will be available in the UK 🇬🇧, followed by the EEU 💶 and the USA 🇺🇸

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
2) I see that Baanx’s own Global CL Card will only be available for some countries within the European region. As the project develops overtime, will you be planning to expand the availability of your card to cater other oversees countries around the world?

Kieron Cartledge:
Thank you for the question 🙋‍♂️

First the CL card powered by Ledger will be released in the UK followed by the EEU and the USA. We are constantly working on our market expansion, aligning with legal requirements and regulations. We hope that in the future our product can enter more markets and regions.

The roadmap in the space and within what we do is never ending. Meaning we have the oportunity to really go as far as we need to making sure we stay within the regulatory boundries and are rolling it out in the right mannor 💥

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
3) I saw that BAANX introduced it’s newest product called “Stableloans”, can you give us more details about it? What are Stableloans and how does this work? How can users open their Stableloans? Also, what benefits do users get from this product, specially if they are $BXX holders?

Kieron Cartledge:
Love the question 💙

I am happy to see that this community has done some research about what Baanx offers.

First of all, I would like to say that we offer 2 products:

✅ Cryptodraft
✅ Stableloan

Cryptodraft’- we own the word! ®

Opening a Cryptodraft allows you to access a line of credit while using your crypto as collateral. It gives you the option to spend up to 35% of your collateral value as credit on your card. The first 10% is interest-free, while the remaining 25% is subject to a small monthly interest rate (MPR). To receive collateral back to your wallet, you will need to repay any outstanding balances, as well as any additional interest payments.

Exclusive benefits are an upcoming part of BXX’s utility that we’re excited to offer to you all! As a BXX holder, you can look forward to higher levels of interest-free spending. This means you’ll be able to spend more on your card with zero interest! 🥳🤩

A Stableloan:

is a product that allows you to borrow stablecoin assets, including USDT, USDC and EURT.

As a borrower, you’ll have the ability to choose how much you want to borrow and for how long. You’ll be able to borrow stablecoins up to 50% of the value of your deposited crypto collateral.

Unlike a Cryptodraft, a Stableloan is fixed term and gives you a higher level of borrowing. You will also be able to see the exact amount of interest you’ll need to pay in total.

$BXX holders can look forward to lower interest rates when taking out a Stableloan.

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
4) As you’re in the UK
There are some rules for the Crypto
Can you please tell me about the regulation?

Kieron Cartledge:
Avery important question

While many crypto lenders are offshore and unregulated, Baanx has FCA, and own stake in a USA bank (Maxwell Bank) which has been FDIC certified since 1943!

We have a number of UK (FCA crypto registered) and EU licences directly and via regulated partners. Therefore our clients can be sure that they enter transparent and legal crypto space with Baanx.

Ramsy | Crypto Miners:
5) With the present market fluctuations, yet your project seems to continue its development drive unabated, can you tell us some of the secrets for success at the #Baanx platform? What should we expect in the near future?

Kieron Cartledge:
There is no secret. The truth is that at Baanx, we are thinking very big, ambitiously and have an amazing experienced team. Just imagine that our team has 100+ Years of International mobile and bank tech experience!

Soon we have big partnership products coming out with Tezos and Ledger (450,000+ have signed up so far!). Ledger has over 4m users and 10% of the world’s crypto assets are stored on Ledger — Cryptodraft, Stableloan and loyalty (crypto cashback) and our unique managed services.

We will be able to add many of these services all powered by BXX. The more BXX you hold, the lower interest rate, higher savings rate, and better rewards users will access. We have over 30 signed customers, all who will be live and rolling out to their communities over the next year.

Take a look at our updated product roadmap if you still haven’t. There’s a lot coming!

DeFi customers go live with physical & virtual cards.

Partnerships with NFT & GameFi projects.

Baanx will launch Ledger and Tezos in the UK, EEA and the US.

Followed up by the launch of Baanx cards, wallets and secured interest-free Cryptodraft and Stableloan in the United States.

Now Moving on to our last segment — Live Q&A

Shall We Go mate?

Kieron Cartledge:
yep, yep, yep

Segment 3️⃣: Live QnA
(In this segment group was opened for 60 seconds and Miners sent hundreds of questions. Guest choose some best to answer)

1) Noufal Basheer Noufu:
How can I buy your tokens

Kieron Cartledge:
You can find them on MEXC

https://www.mexc.com/exchange/BXX_USDT

You can also buy on Uniswap — https://v2.info.uniswap.org/home

2) Summer:
One of the products of BAANX that I found interesting is the Money Remittance and TextBit as payment service. Can you tell how will this work around the world? And how is its speed, transparency, and low cost guaranteed?

Kieron Cartledge:
Yes sure so what we do is we tether your mobile number to your wallet addess. So when you want to send money weather its BTC or USDT you simply select send using telephone number type in the number or access your phonebook and click send. If the user has an account it apears almost instantly. If they dont have an account it send them a text to open one!

3) Lavana2016:
Will the BAANX platform become a statewide global platform? Do you have partnerships with financial bodies in each country? So far who are the partners of BAANX?

Kieron Cartledge:
We have a number of partnerships with Visa, Mastercard, China union pay and a number of processors. We try to partner with the correct people to get to where we need to be.

We want to do things correctly this is why we work with not against our regulators and partners we do work with.

in terms of Client Partnerships we have the likes of Tezos, Ledger, Reef, Akoin and a number of other who don’t want to be named for a a number of reasons! But we are constantly growing our portfolio and as we speak are launching a couple of these 😉

4) Xugdhb:
Is your project only for elite investors, what about others with small funds, is it open to everyone?

Kieron Cartledge:
Of course it is! We are an inclusive community meaning you can hold as little as 1 BXX!

We work with our partners and community to ensure we are offering everyone a chance to have a card in their hand 🖐

5) Legend Gamer:
I read that you will be soon launching your CL Cards. This is very interesting since it would open a wider gateway for crypto-fiat payment. Will the first release of this CL card is only limited for few people? What are the features of holding this card? How can I get one?

Kieron Cartledge:
So the CL Card powered by Ledger. Will be rolling our very very soon. You can see on my twitter Kieron_Baanx me using the CL card today just before this AMA.

We will be rolling it out in the UK, USA and EEA in a very phased manor — i would keep an eye out on the social meida channels for more Information on timings 🙂
