One of the most interesting companies on the blockchain market – Amir Capital Group. Have a look at what they have to tell us about their project.
Let’s start from the beginning…
The history of Amir Capital company began in 2008. The founder of the company, Marat Amirovich Mynbayev, at that time had 4 sons. And like any father, he was thinking about their future: financial security, but at the same time did not quarrel with each other, did not engage in “inheritance sharing” and other things. He was faced with the question – how to make the inheritance multiply, but at the same time remain inviolable? To solve this issue, the best lawyers were hired, very painstaking work was carried out, many nuances were taken into account, all legal aspects were calculated, and finally, after 10 months, the necessary document was born. It was clearly written: all the rights of children are protected, sons can enjoy income after reaching adulthood, but the core of capital remains inviolable. Amir Capital LLP was created and all assets from all businesses were transferred there. That is, initially, Amir Capital was essentially a company that manages the assets of the family.
From 2008 to 2017, Marat Mynbayev, as a private trader, traded for himself and he did it well. Having studied the fashionable blockchain trend for a year, in February he bought his first bitcoins and mining farms. However, the “buy and hold” strategy turned out to be much more profitable. And in May 2017, Marat Mynbayev sold all his farms and started trading – he does it much better, besides, it does not require such huge costs as mining.
In September 2017, Marat Mynbayev became a trader of one fund, but it so happened that the fund was closed, and its founder ran away with all the money. And Marat Mynbayev still has obligations to people for many thousands of US dollars. What had to be done in such a situation? There is only one way out – to create your own fund.
In December 2017, he began to actively work in this direction. When there is an idea, resources will also appear. This always works. And people from different directions began to connect to Marat Mynbayev: a lawyer, a financier, a marketer, “their” traders from the team who believed in joined success. A team appeared. And since January 2018, preparations for the launch of the fund on the big market have begun.
They rented an office in Moscow City. One half of the office was occupied by the ROST-FM studio, in the second half, enthusiasts spent days and nights at work, even putting two-tier beds there so as not to waste time on the way home and back. In March 2018, the first documents on the company’s registration were received. Since there was no experience in such cases yet, the registration was entrusted to a third-party organization, and as it turned out later, it was not done quite correctly and the place was chosen poorly. Most people still have established stereotypes: “Cyprus is an offshore zone, they register there in order not to pay taxes.” Although today the requirements of Cyprus for companies have become tougher and are not much inferior to the legislation of other European countries.
Therefore, when the foundation began to develop very well, it was decided to transfer the registration to Estonia. As of March 2018, there were about 200 investors in the fund, about 2.000 in January 2019, about 6.000 in January 2020, and more than 10.000 in March 2020.
Currently, the team employs 30 traders (13 in the state and 17 in outsourcing), a special risk management technique for long-term and non-stop trading from Marat Mynbayev and 3 assistant robots are used in the work.
And since the fund invests not only in cryptocurrencies, but also in other assets based on blockchain technology: startups, real estate, art objects, and so on, over time the number of projects has increased and all this has grown into a huge ecosystem, where each project occupies its own niche.
Today, Amir Capital is an investment holding specializing in the development of blockchain technologies.
The mission of Amir Capital
The mission of Amir Capital is to make investments accessible to everyone, to teach people to understand investment tools and use blockchain technologies, to introduce the Concept of Universal Investment Literacy. Blockchain provides both technical and legal opportunities for this, plus flexibility and liquidity. Amir Capital makes investment instruments massive. As a result, this will lead to the fact that a million people will become financially independent.
New economic system
Amir Capital Group stands for the introduction of a new economic system.
There are three areas where you can invest: real estate, business and copyright. The place where they intersect is finance. In order for this to interact with each other, we need a logistics tool. Once upon a time, people changed among themselves by who has what. But it wasn’t always convenient. What to do if you are offered a cow, but you need a horse? Then they came up with a measure of exchange in the form of grain, but it was also not too convenient: grain must be stored somewhere, transported somehow, etc. Different things were tried as a measure of value, but in the end everyone came to a single standard: appearance, weight and quality. So the first coins and money appeared. Money or finance is a measure of value. And the system that exists now is obviously outdated.
For example, imagine that a mobile application was written 5 years ago and its code was designed for 1000 users. And with the growth of the population, despite the fact that the application was improving, the servers stopped coping with the work, failures began. And the more users there are, the stronger this problem is. The problem can be solved by constantly replacing the servers. Or, you can only change the application code, then you will not need to change the servers. And what is happening in the world now can be figuratively described as”servers are not coping”. Fires, wars, epidemics, etc.: the economy begins to crumble.
Previously, money was tied to gold, but now such a binding no longer exists. And another reason is that every person has a need to be useful, but this is not taken into account. And we want to create, generate creativity and live well at the same time. Copyright can be applied and for the sake of art. There are people who can create and earn money by it, and there are businessmen and entrepreneurs. There is trade, production, services, etc.
And the financial system is in the middle of it. What should I link it to? It is impossible to refer to economic indicators, this is all subjective. So we want to tie it to a person. A person is the center of value generation and resource consumption.
We distinguish two fundamental axioms.
1. Every person is a genius
Everyone is good at one or more types of intelligence, there are no incompetent people. There are people who simply have not found themselves yet or do not have the tools/skills to develop their abilities.
2. Freedom is the natural habitat of a person.
There are 6 higher forms of freedom, initially every person has them, but at some point in life they have to be abandoned voluntarily:
Financial freedom: when you can freely and independently manage your time, work where you want and when you want it, while you have constantly replenished financial resources;
Freedom of time: the time when you can afford your personal work schedule, go on vacation for a week, a month, a year at any time, and at the same time your finances will continue to work and multiply without your participation;
Freedom of relationships: there are no national restrictions;
Spiritual freedom: you have the right to your own thoughts, to your inner world;
Physical freedom: at any time when there is such a desire, you can go on a journey wherever you want;
Freedom to reveal your genius: allow yourself to be special and respect other people “with oddities”.
The new financial system
Proof of born: money appears immediately at the birth of a person;
Proof of time: a minute of life = money, and the issue is clearly tied to the conditions of life with a coefficient of education, culture, publicity, loyalty; the higher this coefficient, the happier a person is, the more useful he can bring to society;
Proof of activity: social and labor activity;
Proof of stake: investing in all projects of Amir Capital Group, while the money is working, a person can engage in science or art, develop their creative abilities, learn foreign languages, and so on;
Proof of burn: heredity, money in second place, first a person.
Let’s live our own life, and not pay attention to others. Blockchain is a technology of decentralization and fairness, and on this basis we can create a lot.
We do not believe that our company has competitors. We have associates, people who also teach other people financial literacy, which is the foundation for the success of each person, and the more such people there are, the better.
We use blockchain tools to achieve financial freedom, while others use other tools – the classic stock market, precious metals, etc.But everyone has the same goal – to become a financially free person.
The biggest challenge
A small problem on our way can be considered a lack of awareness about blockchain technology among people. Many people do not want to understand and believe that bitcoin is a pyramid, a bubble that will soon burst, and so on. But this is a natural resistance of the market, which was for example at the beginning of the 20th century, when the first cars began to appear in England. There was a “horse business” in the market: a huge number of people worked with horses, were coachmen, cleaned the roads behind them, made horseshoes, and so on. Thousands of people worked in this industry and none of them wanted to lose their jobs. But it took quite a bit of time, and people realized that the car is more convenient, faster than a horse, and so on, and cars have replaced horses. These are the laws of the market and they will always work: if the old technology is replaced by a more convenient new one, sooner or later it will replace the usual and become a new norm for everyone.
That is why we hold our events, make training videos, answer questions about cryptocurrency in weekly live broadcasts – to convey to as many people as possible that financial freedom is much closer to them than it seems.
The biggest success for team is… team
Now we have about 30 projects developing in the ecosystem at the same time, each of them has a great team of guys working. Our employees are our pride. They are thoroughly imbued with the company’s ideology and work “for an idea”, not for money. We attract like-minded people to us and this is our strength.
