WHAT IS FLEXU?

FLEXU ("FLEXU") is a new cryptocurrency that is designed to address the issues and concerns of the current generation of cryptocurrencies such as instability, uncertainty, lack of supply and extreme volatility.

FLEXU is trusted, stable, self-governing, available, reliable and interoperable.

FLEXU is cryptocurrency that is designed to ensure longevity and stability, ensuring the ecosystem of FLEXU holders is protected through the following key design aspects:

Available and Stable - Consistent token supply; ERC20 and ERC223 standards compliant ensuring future compatability with other blockchain design principles. Continuous ever lasting supply enables liquidity to avoid volatility and scarcity.
Trusted self governance - FLEXU cannot be interfered with as the design of the platform is fully automated. FLEXU is a stable monetary system auctioned daily by descending price.
Enduring - Long lasting Cyptocurrency that is usable and atractive to payment providers for purchase of goods and services;
Reliable - FLEXU is minted daily and available in a descending price auction;
Flexible - FLEXU is exchangeable for fiat and ETH currencies;
Interoperable - FLEXU is cross-blockchain compatible, meaning it is migrateable from one blockchain to other blockchains. This provides FLEXU owners with an option to move to other cryptocurrency networks if desired;

WHY IS THE CRYPTOCURRENCY CALLED FLEXU?

Since 2012 we have been consulting in the cryptocurrency sector and we chose a name that one day thought we could apply to a new business model or invention.

In December 2016 we gave birth to the innovative concept of FLEXU a new flexible cryptocurrency that would be trusted, stable, self-governing, available, reliable and interoperable. designed to last for eternity.

HOW CAN I USE FLEXU?

FLEXU is designed to act as a trusted, stable and non-volatile token that can be used by any institution or any community that is seeking a currency which can be used for practical purporses. There will be a number of features that will address design gaps on the Ethereum network. This includes usage as:

  1. Purchase of goods and services - the most practical usage of FLEXU, where we will partner with payment providers;
  2. Exchange - exchange FLEXU for either ETH or fiat currencies;
  3. Bulk Payments - a service to provide bulk payments of FLEXU tokens to multiple account holders;
  4. Transfers - a service to allow FLEXU holders to transfer tokens between FLEXU holders;
  5. Recurring Payments - a service to allow for users to setup recurring payments and other account holders. Recurring payments is a unique feature envisaged to allow for usages such as bill payments or standing orders. The owner would authorize the receiver of FLEXU to take an agreed amount on a periodic time basis e.g. monthly rent;
  6. Increasing store of asset value as the asset increases in monetary value this adds further security and trust.

WHAT BLOCKCHAINS

FLEXU will initially be launched on Ethereum. After launch we will make FLEXU interoperable on the Qtum, Rootstock on Bitcoin and Ethereum Classic blockchains. Further blockchains will be added subsequently. As FLEXU matures we will seek to allow other blockchains the ability to exchange their cryptocurrency on our network (subject to community agreement).

WHAT IS THE FLEXU AUCTION?

FLEXU will be made available every day using a descending price auction ("DPA"). The auction will start with a ceiling price at 2 ETH for 1 FLEXU and the price will decrease every minute by 0.0001 ETH. FLEXU uses this technique to ensure fairness, stablity and transparency in pricing to the consumer. The auction continues until the FLEXU supply is exhausted or the 24 time period expires. This process is repeated every day. Each day a Daily Auction Placement ("DAP") allocation of FLEXU is made available. This is either the value greater of a volume of 3,000 FLEXU tokens per day or an annual rate equal to 2% of the outstanding supply per year.
