The NAGA Group AG is a German technology company whose mission is to “[identify and build] disruptive business models” and disrupt they have. After conducting one of Germany’s fastest recorded IPOs in the past 15 years, NAGA was listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in July, whereupon they saw a share price increase of 400% in less than three months.
Considered one of the top traded retail shares in Germany, NAGA’s current market cap exceeds 300 million EUR ($348 million USD). NAGA is the first publicly traded company to follow up a successful IPO with a token sale and, unlike the majority of other token sales, has an existing product already generating millions of dollars in annual revenues.
The NAGA ecosystem is an ambitious project that brings together NAGA’s core offerings – SwipeStox, Switex, and the NAGA wallet – to create a single platform that makes buying and selling stocks, cryptocurrencies, and virtual goods safer, more transparent, and more accessible to everyone.
SwipeStox is social trading at its best. It combines the features of social networks like Facebook and Twitter (chat, channels, video, follow and watch, etc…) with a robust trading platform. Designed to take the confusion out of trading, SwipeStox lets users copy and share stock trades with a single click.
Some of SwipeStox’ features include:
- Copy Trades
- Auto Copy
- CYBO robo-advisor
- News Feed
- Social features
In addition, users who choose to share their trades with the larger community earn a generous bonus, paid directly to their account, any time another user copies one of their trades. In an interview with CNBC, CEO Benjamin Bilski stated that there are users who are making $10 – $15,000 per month just from having their trades copied by other traders on the platform.
Launched in 2016, SwipeStox currently has tens of thousands of active users and a total trade volume to date of over $49 billion. The SwipeStox app is available for both Android and iOS devices and there is a web-based interface as well.
Currently in alpha, Switex will be the first independent, safe, and legal virtual goods exchange platform. Users of the platform will be able to buy in-game virtual items both from other gamers and directly from the game publishers themselves. Switex is not just for gamers, however. Practically any virtual item – concert tickets, movie tickets, e-gift cards – can be bought and sold in the marketplace.
Any item entering the Switex system will be secured against fraud and scamming as the legitimacy of the items, their origins, and the sellers’ right to sell will all be verified. Furthermore, Switex’ fully integrated clearance and settlement system will automatically transfer goods to the buyer upon purchase, ensuring a seamless and safe transaction for both parties.
The NAGA wallet plays a central role in the NAGA ecosystem. First and foremost, it is a secure multi-currency wallet that allows users to deposit and exchange cryptocurrencies as well as fiat currencies. Second, it serves as a central hub, pulling together SwipeStox, Switex, and any future projects into one easily accessible dashboard interface. Users will be able to invest in stocks, trade virtual goods, manage crypto portfolios, facilitate transfers of funds, and more.
Some of the key advantages of the NAGA wallet include:
- Connects to leading cryptocurrency exchanges
- Direct integration with SwipeStox and Switex user accounts
- Lowest foreign exchange and transaction fees
- Decentralized and risk-free storage
- Dedicated NGC bonus wallet inside the NAGA wallet where users will earn a percentage-based bonus per transaction volume on both Switex and SwipeStox
Currently, the NAGA wallet can be funded with BTC, ETH, LTC, and DASH. Users preferring FIAT currencies can fund their wallet using a credit card or bank transfer.
