The Next Chapter
As we continue to grow month after month, we aim to further evolve the syndicate & continue improving client experience while also maximising potential. Here are some of the things we are planning for 2021.
Highlights / Visual representation of bets to give investors added entertainment value.
"It will be, as if you were there!"
I know, we've been missing a trick! There's a lot of fun to be had to watch your bets perform. Especially when you're winning! However, the problem we have is we can't show you what we're betting on. Mostly.
Why? There are several reasons. Sharing our selections can significantly reduce the odds of our own bets. If market liquidity is low. The information may also be taken advantage of, from investors who buy-in with the minimum amount in order to gain access. Plus, we are very protective of any strategies or systems that are being used by our analysts. With all the information and data available online, it may be possible for someone to crack the system, so to speak. And we definitely don't want that!
So, to make up for the current lack of excitement, we're planning to create a new highlights feature for investors within the next 6 months that will add more entertainment value & help create the ultimate bet placement service.
Here's what we're thinking...
Using pre-recorded sporting events. We will record daily videos that reflect the real life betting results of each option. So, if your invested in one of our horse racing options, and there were 4 bets that day, you'll be able to watch 4 replays with corresponding results, at a time that best suits you!
When you log into your gateway, before showing you the figures and updated results. You'll see 2 options.
Option 1) VIEW FIGURES >
> Go straight to your account information and view your balance, profit/loss and performance chart. Exactly the same way as you do already.
Option 2) VIEW HIGHLIGHTS >
> This option will allow you to re-live the moments your bets won or lost. Experience the thrill & excitement of winning. Or the disappointment of coming so close. Whatever the outcome, you'll be part of the event that took place.
Decentralised banking option.
The syndicate have been using faster payment transactions for a long time. Although it comes with limitations. Most of the time transactions go through without any problems. However, just the other day we had a new investor transfer money that still wasn't showing on our end after 5 days. They went through the process of contacting the bank, dealing with advisors who didn't know much about what the issue was, before eventually being told by a supervisor a trace had been placed on the payment and they had to wait up to 20 days for the situation to be resolved. And, although there was nothing we could do at HCo, we felt bad, and it didn't look good for us! Especially to a new investor. Luckily, it was resolved after several hours and the money arrived safely. But really, it's not how we want to be doing business in the future.
"The future of HCo Syndicate will rely on cross border transactions. Processed instantly with little to no cost!"
Please note: We're still in the process of researching and learning about how to implement this technology into our business model. However, whatever happens, we'll always keep our current banking options available to investors alongside any new options/payment methods we include.
From the little research we've done, we see a big future in decentralised banking and we think it's only right that we begin to get involved. Especially after discovering all the advantages we could have.
Better control and supervision of funds.
Cross border transactions.
Transaction processing times.
Higher limits to transactions.
Less risk of fraud.
Higher interest rates on our assets that we can pass onto investors.
It appears the best option currently would be using stablecoins that are a form of cryptocurrency. They are without the volatility of coins such as bitcoin, and they reflect the value of national currencies such as USD, GBP & the EURO.
Ultimately, if we are to become an international syndicate operating around the globe. We are going to need this form of banking available to us.
