I Introduction

AdAstra Overview

The purpose of AdAstra is to create an ecosystem where token holders can benefit from the positive effects of compounded interest, high liquidity and a share of arbitraging profit without suffering from impermanent loss. It leverages the power of two of the most innovative industry tokens, aIOT and aIDV.

II Tokens

A Tokens Introduction

The AdAstra platform segments technology projects and opportunities into distinct industries, aggregating liquidity into tech-sector specific Astra tokens for IoT, ID validation, and more.

Astra tokens deliver superior flexibility and profitability by employing autonomous processes for liquidity providing, staking, lending, and yield farming.

Trade optimization employs the Kaizen protocol, a novel AI-based oracle able to dynamically minimize transaction costs across multiple pools, while maximizing processing throughput. Transactional security and privacy is ensured using HyperID, a breakthrough in cyber-secure identity used to thwart fraud and confound thieves.

Astra IoT Technology Opportunity Token (aIOT)

The Internet-of-Things (IoT) represents one of the world's fastest growing and most pervasive market opportunities. IoT requires interoperable connectivity of machines, robots, sensors, cameras, lighting, controllers, and vehicles, with networks, clouds, databases, and mobile devices. An important feature of IoT is its ability to function autonomously and (when needed) to form ad hoc networks with peers for ensuring reliable fault-tolerant operation.

At AdAstra we are able to identify best-in-class developers for IoT products and services and through our Astra IoT token, capitalize their efforts while attracting clients and fueling market acceptance. With its exponential growth, token demand is rising commensurately. As such we expect to provide an annual staking bonus of 30% to 150% for Astra IoT technology token holders.

Astra IDV Identity Validation Token Technology Opportunity Token (aIDV)

Identity management is an important element of the decentralized economy. Personal identity validation is a key component in controlling data access, granting transactional authority, or protecting tokens from theft. Validated identity is fundamental in allowing users to securely and efficiently share access to decentralized services and assets. In DeFi, the validation process to confirm a person’s identity requires a blockchain-based solution lacking any central authority.

As AdAstra contributes to the development of this data-driven economy, the profit potential of decentralized services for identity validation will be reflected in value appreciation of Astra IDV identity validation technology tokens, where we expect prices to grow by 5X - 10X.

III Liquidity Infrastructure

As a sustainable alternative to conventional funding, decentralized finance (aka DeFi) represents a new and flexible vehicle to fund enterprises, especially capital intensive tech ventures, without ceding control to the self-serving interests of speculators.

Specifically developed for funding of tech-sector startups, the AdAstra platform aggregates liquidity through a spectrum of blockchain resources and digital asset reserves via Astra technology opportunity tokens. In doing so, AdAstra provides a flexible cost-efficient DeFi platform supporting new ventures in diverse tech sectors while offering investors, lenders, and liquidity-providers superior economic performance & return potential.

Providing Liquidity for Tokens

Aggregating liquidity of digital assets into industry-specific Astra tokens, the AdAstra platform facilitates capitalization of emerging technology ventures while delivering compelling crypto investment opportunities.

AdAstra focusses on funding innovative technology, developing emerging rapid-growth industries, and underwriting ventures involving high-tech vanguards and pioneering innovators.

Technology Opportunity Offerings

Technology opportunity offerings include tokens for IoT, ID validation, cybersecurity, blockchain-based supply management, biomedical / biotech, communication, and more. Many venture opportunities funded through Astra tokens involve non-public offerings, otherwise unknown and inaccessible to private crypto-investors.

Astra technology opportunity tokens deliver stability, superior flexibility, liquidity, and profit potential for all categories of crypto-investors, including liquidity providers, stakers, lenders, or yield farmers.

IV Kaizen Protocol

A Kaizen Protocol: Enhanced DeFi Experience

Kaizen is a protocol that provides access to inter-blockchain liquidity of crypto-assets through an  intuitive easy-to-use online trading interface.

Compared to other DeFi protocols, Kaizen is uniquely cost efficient. By autonomously monitoring trades across  multiple platforms and exchanges, Kaizen dynamically adjusts pricing to minimize commissions and limit selling  spreads. In this manner, Kaizen is able to ensure liquidity in a pool, minimize transaction commissions, and avoid  impermanent losses.

Kaizen managed DeFi  pools are immunized against arbitrage by ensuring all transactions occur rapidly and at a price as close to the market  as possible.

Kaizen Protocol Concept

The underlying concept that lies behind the Kaizen.Finance protocol is a liquidity aggregator.

Liquidity is a very important parameter in any market. If it is high, it means that buying and selling transactions are performed frequently, and the difference between the maximum price for buying and the minimum price for selling (spread) is small.

What Kaizen.Finance protocol does is collects market orders from different platforms (including external markets) in a single stream, so that users have a better chance to find the best suitable option — the minimum spread.

Kaizen Protocol Objectives

Low Commissions

Kaizen.Finance offers lower fees by combining the borrow, transfer, and lending into a single transaction.

Oracle-Governed Pools

Since automated market makers (AMM) are disconnected from the external markets (centralized exchanges), token prices will not adjust on AMM. And when the token pairs have a similar value, impermanent loss is insignificant.

Although, if the price ratio between the pair increases or decreases greatly, then the price ratio is off-balance. This difference creates an arbitrage opportunity meaning arbitrage traders buy an asset in one market and sell it in another at a quick pace.

So, when the price ratio of deposited tokens changes after you deposited them in the pool impermanent loss may happen. Whenever the market price of an asset shifts, anyone can use the arbitrage and trade tokens with the smart contract until the liquidity pool price converges to the current market price.

The Kaizen-Finance Oracle-Governed Pool minimizes the risks associated with the impermanent loss by offering the optimal spread that allows users to quickly perform transactions at a price as close to the market as possible.

Mass Adoption

It is worth noting that one of the crucial problems that restrains users from starting earning in DeFi projects is the vague and complex user interface.

By putting away superfluous and infrequently used functions but leaving only necessary features, Kaizen.Finance makes user interaction with the service easier and understandable enough to initiate first trades.

Kaizen Protocol Functionality

Kaizen Protocol clusters transactions from multiple clients, compiling operations from various services into one transaction, which helps ensure lower fees for all the involved participants.

Kaizen.Swap User Flow

To exchange cryptocurrency:

  1. Connect your wallet.
  2. Choose a pair of coins to swap.

You can also choose a token list (lists comprise tokens and serve to filter out low high-quality tokens (legitimate), deployed by reputable projects, from low quality assets (e.g., scams, fakes, and duplicates)).

Kaizen.Finance will find the best pool for the exchange and provide exchange information including:

  1. Minimum amount received;
  2. Price impact (how much more interest will the token liquidity be increased by);
  3. Liquidity provider fee;
  4. Route (shows a maximum beneficial path between the asset you have and the asset you want).
  1. Approve swap and get swapped tokens in your wallet.
Kaizen.Income User Flow
