The world as we know it is changing.

We believe every facet of modern life is about to go through a revolutionary change thanks to the advent of cryptocurrencies and smart contracts via blockchain. The future is increasingly decentralized, and that will leave a major impression on your life. 


From the ways your clothes are made and delivered, to how the components in your TV or cellphone talk to one another, this recent technological leap promises to revitalize modern life. Still, there are hundreds of millions of people who may not be able to access that bright future unless something changes. 


There are about 650 million people across the Caribbean and Latin American regions, and all of them are looking for their chance to bring their knowledge, passion, inspiration, and experiences to the new global marketplace. It is estimated that 70% of those people - or more than 400 million people - are unbanked or financially underserved, a huge market encompassing billions of dollars (Source). Those 400 million people are at a disadvantage because of their limited access to basic banking services and a dedicated, reliable cryptocurrency exchange that’s capable of bringing their communities into the future (Source).

That's why we’re building OuroX, the first and only cryptocurrency exchange of which we’re aware that’s dedicated specifically to the Caribbean and Latin America. OuroX will provide a lifeline into the future for hundreds of millions of people. And this investment opportunity is your chance to be a part of it. 


Try buying (and trading in) Bitcoin from Suriname, South America. It’s not only a hassle, but more close to impossible. This led CEO Maya Parbhoe to pursue the creation of this company. Even a simple wire can be a daunting task. Forget being able to purchase anything online. 


Failure to keep up with technological advances in the financial services industry is impeding regional economic growth and competitiveness by costing more time and funds for even basic financial transactions, compared to North America, Europe and Asia.


OPPORTUNITY FOR RADICAL CHANGE AND IMPROVEMENT

We are therefore preparing to launch a comprehensive set of cutting edge FinTech based financial and trade services in the Latin American and Caribbean regions, including:


A highly innovative exchange with a comprehensive trading platform and professional UI named OuroX;

An online and mobile payment processor;

A comprehensive multi-vendor marketplace named Fuente;

A regional shipping costs and logistics calculation tool.


A FINANCIAL REVOLUTION IN LATIN AMERICA

OUROX EXCHANGE


What is OuroX?

OuroX is, at its core, a trustworthy, reliable, secure and cutting-edge cryptocurrency exchange with a comprehensive trading platform and professional UI specifically created to service the Latin American and Caribbean Regions. Though it might be limited to hosting the largest cryptocurrencies at its launch, OuroX will still deliver high-quality functionality with a unique spin that reflects the region. Furthermore, while OuroX will begin as an exchange, we believe it will end as so much more, because OuroX is entering a market that is ripe for disruption. 


OuroX Exchange's Amazing Features

OuroX will launch equipped with features standard to any major cryptocurrency exchange. Currently in development with AlphaPoint, the exchange will be an advanced platform capable of handling over one million trades/second. It will launch with five of the largest cryptocurrencies (BTC, ETH, LTC, XRP and EOS). 


Where OuroX differentiates itself at the outset is its unique dedication to the Caribbean and Latin American markets. The platform will support English, Spanish and Portuguese to reach the widest audience. Eventually, the platform will support fiat currencies of every market OuroX enters. But at the launch, functions will be basic. 

FUENTE

The Fuente marketplace, where buyers and sellers can connect, will create sustainable economic growth in regions where entrepreneurs now have trouble connecting and doing business securely and conveniently.


BLOCKCHAIN

Using Blockchain and distributed ledger technology we believe we can reduce costs and make transfers fast and easy (in real-time) worldwide. We believe that with the FinTech applications in our hands, we have the ability to improve the consumer banking and payment systems in the Latin American region.

WE HAVE A VISION FOR A CUTTING EDGE FINTECH PLATFORM; THE BEST PLATFORM IN LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN, WITH A GLOBAL FUTURE.

THE OFFERING

Investment
$1.67/share of Series B Common Stock│When you invest you are betting the company’s future value will exceed $12.6M.


For details on the bonus, please see the Offering Summary below.


DEVELOPMENT STAGE

Currently we have finished development of the exchange platform, which will launch with the 5 top crypto currencies based on Blockchain technology, and will be launching at the end of October. We will be rolling out several features over the next 4 quarters. Blockchain based payment processing is one of the features we will be developing in the first quarter of 2019. We want to apply for an international banking license in the second quarter of 2019. And will be applying for licenses in the jurisdictions where we will operate.

A NEW VISION: OUROX EXCHANGE

AN EXCHANGE AND A REGION IN NEED OF INNOVATION

Though there are exchanges available, we strongly believe that there is a need for a trustworthy, reliable and secure exchange with a comprehensive trading platform and professional UI. 


The Latin American and Caribbean regions lack a dedicated cryptocurrency exchange because FinTech and trade services infrastructure are generally underdeveloped and lag behind other centers of finance. Nevertheless, markets arise whether or not they have the infrastructure to back them, so the regions have made due. 


Therefore, while financial services are still available to function, they are tightly monopolized by a few institutions, usually state-sponsored. This lack of support impedes economic growth and competitiveness across the regions, affecting the cost, speed, and ease of financial transactions. 

The situation these regions face is difficult. Workarounds might exist but are insecure and poorly built, and the regions suffer. Entrepreneurship and business ownership becomes very difficult due to the overwhelmingly high barriers to entry. Services are provided slowly and selectively, and stagnation is the norm. 


What's more, these obstacles also negatively impact fair credit across the regions, keeping businesses in the hands of the wealthiest few (Source). We believe that without a means to secure credit, individuals and businesses are forced to contract, while communities have to make choices that impact lives. Improvements are put off and people suffer. The end result is a hostile environment for both companies and people. 


We believe that a cutting edge blockchain based exchange and trading platform built for the regions can help alleviate some of those issues. 


We have a vision for a cutting edge exchange; the best exchange in Latin America and the Caribbean, with a global future. And with all our FinTech services, changing the way people interact financially.


WHAT WILL DISTINGUISH OUROX FROM EXISTING REGIONAL EXCHANGES?

According to our research, most regionally accessible exchanges have a poor technical architecture and an insecure platform, the majority of which have been built by people with some technical background. This results often in exchanges that are rushed and use the simplest approach to get up and running. We believe that this might be a low cost way to start, but leaves the exchange open to a lot of vulnerabilities. They have poor market liquidity and thin order books. Slippage is a major problem for traders and users alike. They generally have poor customer service and international support.


Furthermore, putting regional business at an even greater disadvantage is the lack of adequate capacity of current exchanges to accept new investors. There are waiting lists and high liquidity thresholds discouraging entry of these potential new investors. 


Add to the above the slow and costly banking transfer practices that are common throughout the region, and it quickly becomes obvious that there is a huge potential for a cutting edge Blockchain based exchange and trading platform.


OuroX will provide a stable solution to a number of the problems facing the Latin American and Caribbean regions by providing a funding route, a means of trading, and the means to facilitate transactions. Just by making these services readily available, OuroX will greatly stimulate entrepreneurship across the region and enable companies to scale more easily than ever before. 

As a cutting-edge, blockchain-based exchange and trading platform, OuroX wants to guarantee access to a revolutionary new economy for millions of people across the regions. A secure cryptocurrency exchange will provide a lifeline for investment, growth, and competition by creating an impartial financial infrastructure. Furthermore, once established, OuroX can become the foundation for further improvements.


Following OuroX's establishment in October 2018, the platform will work to establish new functions to better serve the regions. The first addition will be the creation of both merchant services and payment-processing functionality to make OuroX a platform capable of handling every step for entrepreneurs and small businesses. Secured by the blockchain, this will provide peace of mind and a plethora of new options.


Finally, before the end of 2019, OuroX plans to establish a marketplace connecting lenders with borrowers through smart contracts, thus creating an independent credit system. This alternative marketplace would let people connect directly, thus securing loans on friendlier terms. Not only would this lift a massive burden from entrepreneurs in Latin America and the Caribbean, this would allow OuroX to pursue other methods of establishing credit, such as pooled funds and community-driven ratings.


Building a fairer alternative for everyone across these regions is our ultimate goal and it gives OuroX an immense leg-up. Because when we succeed, everyone will succeed. 

FUENTE: A COMPREHENSIVE MULTI-VENDOR MARKETPLACE

A REGION IN NEED OF A COMMON MARKETPLACE AND TRANSPARENT SHIPPING AND LOGISTICS APPLICATIONS

At present and to our knowledge, there is no online marketplace available for manufacturers, distributors, sellers and buyers in the region that is in any way comparable to successful platforms that are available in North America and Asia.


The Fuente marketplace, where buyers and sellers can connect, will create sustainable economic growth in regions where entrepreneurs now have trouble connecting and doing business securely and conveniently.

BLOCKCHAIN BASED PAYMENT PROCESSORS

ENABLING FAST AND EASY TRANSFERS

The use of digital payments is on the rise.


However, currently the costs for transferring funds are high, according to our research, about 8% averages worldwide. Using Blockchain and distributed ledger technology we can reduce costs and make transfers fast and easy (in real-time) worldwide.


With the FinTech applications in our hands, we have the ability to improve the consumer banking and payment systems in the Latin American region.

With our platform we can increase accessibility to modern technologies to our customer base. We can enable mobile payments and transactions and change the financial infrastructure of the region.


WITH P2P LENDING AND CROWDFUNDING WE CAN OFFER ALTERNATIVES FOR FUNDING ON THE PLATFORM.

We can enable entrepreneurs to grow and scale their businesses. Moreover, we can provide easy access to finance to the many unbanked in the region, given that according to Global Findex data 2017, mobile phone ownership is widespread among the unbanked. Globally, about two-thirds of all 1.1 billion unbanked adults, do have a mobile phone (Global Findex Database).


HOW OUROX PLANS TO CHANGE THE WORLD

With the team's combined knowledge of the region and firsthand experiences (and frustrations) with its issues, no one knows the industry quite like they do. And that's exactly why OuroX has such an incredible opportunity to make a drastic difference in these developing economies. 


A reliable and secure trading platform and cryptocurrency exchange provides a pathway for funding and expansion. When it is able to add in merchant services and peer-to-peer lending, OuroX has the chance to seize on something very rare and unique. We believe it has a chance to step into a vacuum to facilitate entrepreneurship and small business growth across the region in nearly unimaginable ways. In our opinion, OuroX, once all of its features have been implemented, can literally transform Latin America and the Caribbean.


In the US, this transformation came about through Amazon's ubiquitous adoption; China went through a similar change with the introduction of Alibaba & TenCent. But the Latin American, South American, and Caribbean markets have had no such logistical behemoth. We believe that, OuroX has the chance to become that.


This means that eventually, OuroX hopes to encompass e-commerce and logistics, as well. We believe that a platform like OuroX not only has the chance to reshape the region's economic infrastructure, it also has the chance to leave a significant and lasting impression on physical infrastructure as well. One day soon, we believe that OuroX could build up the transportation infrastructure of the Caribbean and Latin American regions to ensure shipping transparency, guaranteed accurate shipping prices, and unparalleled access to even the most remote of communities. It will boost regional commerce and facilitate the easier movement of freight. 


A chance to put a latin American startup on the map. And a chance to bring a message of prosperity to the region. 

INVEST IN OUROX TODAY!

Now is a great time to consider investing in OuroX. We are well positioned to benefit from the booming FinTech industry in the Latin American and Caribbean regions which is ripe with opportunities for those equipped to grab them. 


We believe that OuroX is your chance to actually become a ground-floor investor in a company capable of solving real issues for millions of people. We believe that we have the tools to capitalize on the massive opportunities in these regions.


We believe that OuroX solves some of the issues facing the regions, the execution will be solid thanks to AlphaPoint, and the leadership is exceptional. 

Nevertheless, the true opportunity here isn't just the business, its the ability to affect real positive change for hundreds of millions of people. And when an entire region benefits, you'll benefit, and the world will benefit. Don't miss your chance to  to put down a tangible commitment to a better future for yourself and half the hemisphere.

OuroX Signs LOI with the Suriname Stock Exchange and Takes First Steps to Develop an Innovative Securities Exchange for Latin America and the Caribbean.

5 months ago

We can finally share the great news with you, which we have been working on for months!

Paramaribo, May 2nd, 2019 - OuroX and the Suriname Stock Exchange signed a letter of intent last week with the goal of establishing a modern digital National Securities Exchange in Suriname, as required by the Capital Market Act of 2014. This first step paves the way for OuroX to develop and operate the new digital National Securities Exchange. OuroX is an American FinTech start-up, founded by South American entrepreneurs. 

 

The new National Securities Exchange will enable SMEs and large corporations to get access to a wide array of capital market financing options, which have previously been out of reach. Stimulating long-term economic growth not only for Suriname, but for the entire Latin American and Caribbean region as well. OuroX uses blockchain to digitize assets, which increases transparency, efficiency and better supervision in capital markets. All which is necessary to increase the flow of foreign investment into the region.

 

Companies in a large part of the region are still mainly dependent on lending to facilitate growth. With the exchange, OuroX aims to provide capital market financing options and instruments, not only for small, medium and large companies, but also for banks, investment funds, pension funds and government. The first steps have been taken to obtain the necessary licenses and OuroX is closely working with regulators to create a regulatory framework necessary to facilitate the new technology. 

 

The National Securities Exchange of Suriname is built using state-of-the-art exchange software from OuroX’s American FinTech parent company. The software is developed by AlphaPoint, a market leader in innovative exchange software. Working with Alphapoint was a strategic decision, as it allows OuroX, and thus the digital Suriname Securities Exchange to easily connect to international capital markets. To be able to do so, the exchange will be compliant with the latest standards of international financial regulations. 

 

The goal of OuroX is to improve financial infrastructure in Suriname and the rest of the South American and Caribbean region through the use of modern technology. The FinTech startups’ plan is to start by digitizing the National Securities Exchange, with the primary purpose of developing the Surinamese capital market up to international standards. In addition to this, OuroX’s payment app will complement the exchange by offering fast, safe and low-cost payments and cross-border remittances.


OuroX looks forward to closely working with Surinamese regulators, companies and financial institutions to create the most value for the economy by launching two markets, one for startups and SMEs and one for large corporations. Developing the ecosystem from startup to IPO. 

"We will start by digitizing the securities of the twelve companies that are currently listed on the Suriname Stock Exchange. After which we will proceed with the on-boarding of new companies on the exchange. The opportunity is of course much larger than just securities. We will grow steadily by creating products for real estate, commodities trading (including oil and gold), and in the near future also FOREX”, explains Serge Tjin Wong Joe, President of Business Development.

 

OuroX believes that with the obtained support from the current Suriname Stock Exchange, which has been pioneering the industry for over 25 years, it will provide a significant boost to the Surinamese economy. 


‘’We are grateful for the solid foundation the Suriname Stock Exchange has laid in terms of structure and compliance, giving Suriname a head start in comparison to other securities exchanges in the rest of the region that have yet to become digital. It is important to understand that the development and implementation of the new digital exchange, with full cooperation and support of regulators, will be possible in just a few months. The exchange will be available to financial institutions, companies and governments in Q3 of this year.“ says Maya Parbhoe, CEO of OuroX.

 

Education about the opportunities and possibilities of a digital securities exchange for all participants is an important part of the development of OuroX. While the financial instruments that come with a digital exchange are widely used in Europe, Asia and the US, they are still new to Suriname. "The great thing about it, is that we don't have to reinvent the wheel. Using the latest financial technology, we can bridge the gap relatively quickly.”, says Parbhoe.

 

More information regarding the development of the digital Surinamese Securities Exchange will follow soon!

We passed the US$50K Milestone!

5 months ago

It was a slow start for us when we started with this raise. We're very patient, because we realise that it takes time. The vision is so large and so is the scale and impact of what we're working on to achieve. Yes, we're ambitious, and maybe a little bit crazy. But it's the crazy ones who change the world. One step at a time.

It takes a while for people to understand, which is logical, especially when you bring innovation to a region not familiar with the possibilities and opportunities that the technology brings. We are ultimately grateful (and so hyped!) to see more and more of you sharing our vision, and most importantly, the belief in us, to make this happen. We won't let you down, we promise.

Thank you!

P.S. Stay tuned for a big announcement coming up!

The Future of Finance

6 months ago

During the past 2 weeks the OuroX team had the privilege to host several very successful events in Paramaribo, Suriname. Some were private, sitting down with local Surinamese entrepreneurs, CEO's and financial policymakers to discuss the opportunities OuroX can provide to the Surinamese economy. 

We've received valuable feedback, and are working on moving forward with several parties, of which we're hoping to be able to disclose more soon. During the public event on March 20th, there ended up being more people than chairs available, for which we couldn't be more grateful! We believe education will be part of our responsibility, given the fact that we're offering state of the art FinTech to a yet unchartered region. 

As the interest is clearly bigger than anticipated, OuroX is planning on hosting more events in June! Thanks to everyone who supported and attended...soon more!

OuroX @ AICPA Event Curacao

6 months ago

Happy Tuesday, hope all is well on your side! Our team just got back from a short trip to Curacao, where we presented our plans to the financial community in Curacao during the AICPA event. We've received positive feedback and had some good meetings of which the outcome will be shared with you soon! 

This week we are hosting two private events with entrepreneurs and government, and next week a public event, all in Suriname, our home country. The aim of these events is spreading awareness and educating about the opportunities of a digital securities exchange for the economy of Suriname. We wrote this article about it as an introduction (unfortunately, it's in Dutch, but maybe Google translate works?).

Because Great Things Take Time

7 months ago

Wishing you a Happy Valentine's day and some extra love going out to our (new) investors!!

You may have noticed that we only have 4 days left on the raise...but that won't mean the end of it. I mean, how could it?! We're planning on taking over the world after all haha! All jokes aside...Due to the delay we endured with filing with the SEC and our campaign going live right before the Holiday season, it was quite the challenge to get the campaign the attention that it deserves. We only got the opportunity to get to our family and friends in the second week of January, which isn't too long ago, and as you know, our plans need explaining and people need time to think and decide. All great things take time and should be allowed to get the time to grow. Based on all that's going on behind the scenes (which unfortunately, we cannot reveal just yet), we are confident we will be able to raise the US$107K within the next 60 days. We expect you to be part of it!

Thank you for your trust, we won't let you down!

Cheers,

Maya Parbhoe, CEO

Hi everyone, hope all is well on your side! What a week since we’ve launched the OuroX exchange...Have you made an account yet?!

I wanted to take this chance to send gratitude from the heart to our new investors. We’re happy to welcome you to the financial revolution taking LatAm and the Caribbean by storm!

Now there is a lot going on behind the curtains that we cannot speak about yet…but trust me, it’s going to be worth the wait! In the mean time, I can tell you this:

We’re currently undergoing a CPA review, which is necessary to file an amendment to increase our raise cap to US$1.07 million. After we’ve raised the US$1.07 million, we get audited. After which we plan to raise up to a total of US$15 million in the form of a Reg A+ offering, in order to obtain broker dealer licenses in Asia, Europe and the US, in addition to rolling out our products (Securities  on OuroX; OuroPay and Fuente) as planned.

You can currently invest and own a part of the company. We will start to pay out dividends in 2020. When you invest, the funds go into an escrow account and we have to file a disbursement if we want to withdraw money out of escrow. In addition, we need to account for how that money will be spent.

We know many of you have been wondering about how we plan to achieve our goals, looking at the current raise cap of US$ 107K and knowing about our plans and mission. To obtain the proper licenses and add more features, we need to raise capital. And a lot more than US$ 107K, which is why we plan to raise US$ 15 million.

We hope this clears things up! If you happen to have any questions about this (or anything else), feel free to contact us at info@ourox.io.

Talk soon! Happy Weekend!

Warm regards,

Nadira Ramautarsing

OuroX's Partners

8 months ago

Third week of January already, we hope you all are doing great! Time flies when there's a lot happening. We’re just a few weeks out from the official Launch of our platform (February, 1 2019). The soft launch and beta-testing are going very well.

Special thank you to our new investors, we are so appreciative of the support! We’re scheduling more one-on-one investor meetings as well as signing regional business accounts for our FinTech startup. We’ve been working non-stop on all the elements to have them align just right, and so far, it’s working.

Now of course OuroX couldn’t happen without partners. At least not at the level and speed at which the platform has come to life. Without our partners, we don’t know where we’d be on this. Thus, we dedicated a special blogpost to our partners, and we think it's an interesting read. Check it out here.

Talk soon!
Regards,

Team OuroX

Use of Proceeds

9 months ago

Hi everyone! We hope you had a great weekend and are having a good week so far, closing 2018 strong!

Special thank you to our new investors, we are truly grateful that you trust us to come along on this journey to provide a lifeline into the future of hundreds of millions of people by changing the way they interact financially!

We're excited about 2019 coming up and wanted to provide you with a little more detail on how we are planning to spend the funds that we receive from you. At the moment we are in the final testing phase for the exchange and are planning to do a soft launch and hopefully be able to launch to the public officially in January 2019. 

Use of Proceeds:

If we raise the target amount of $106,998.57, we plan to use these proceeds as follows:

Marketing: 25.0%
Funds will be implemented into marketing the exchange and growing the user base. Our marketing strategy will be implemented on all social channels.

Research & Development: 25.0%
The budget will be spent on Research & Development of the platform. Focus is on obtaining a broker-dealer license for the region that will allow us to trade stocks on our platform. And development of the mobile application and payment processor. 

Company Employment: 20.0%
Salaries for employees of the company.

Operations: 10.0%
General business operations, legal and licensing costs.

Working Capital: 14.0%
For general costs of the exchange.

After the Reg CF campaign closes we plan to run a Reg A+ campaign, an exemption signed into law by the SEC, allowing private companies such as ours to raise up to US$50 million. We plan to raise a maximum of US$15 million. 

We hope this provides you with more insight on our plans! Wishing a great holiday season to all of you!

Warm regards,

Team OuroX

What a FinTech Platform (like OuroX) needs to succeed....

10 months ago

If you’re not sure what a FinTech platform is, that’s okay...You can read more about it in this article: What does a FinTech Platform Need to Succeed? Hope it sheds more light on the technicalities and if you have any other questions for us with regards to OuroX, feel free to contact us any time on info@OuroX.io! 


We're sure you'd like to know....

10 months ago

Hi all, hope you are well and enjoying the weekend!

As you know, we are currently running a Reg CF offering. We plan to raise capital through a Security Token Offering with the ERC-1450 protocol, which entails that tokens are only minted at the moment when investors buy securities. The maximum amount of tokens that are allowed to be created is fixed at 2,000,000 (authorized stock). OuroX places high value on compliance. Protecting our investors is very important to us, as we have a long term vision on changing the way people interact financially, starting in Latin America and the Caribbean, but with a global future in mind. This is also the reason why we’re doing an equity regulation crowdfunding offering (Reg CF campaign), put in place by the SEC, allowing companies such as ours to raise up to US$1,07 million from the public. After reaching this goal, we might choose to do a Reg A+ campaign, allowing us to raise more funds, if necessary. Obtaining all proper licensing to expand our product offering and creating a marketplace for the region might require such, however, the maximum of 2,000,000 shares will not be exceeded. We hope you are just as excited as we are passionate about this upcoming financial revolution in an underserved region, allowing us to play a huge role in making a change! Also, really great breakdown on security tokens by John Kenny in Data Driven Investor. We’re not saying this is a must-read, but….., this is a must-read!

Cheers,
Team OuroX

Thanks & Greetings from Blockshow Asia

10 months ago

Just wanted to drop you a quick line and thank you for your support on our raise. We have been exhibiting at Blockshow Asia in Singapore for the past few days, promoting the company and looking to build strategic partnerships that will strengthen us on our mission to change the way people interact financially in Latin America and the Caribbean.

So far, those we spoke to are excited and supportive, especially when they come to know that we are not just one of the many exchanges that are popping up at the moment. We are the only exchange that provides its community the opportunity to become an owner of the platform. We also are very relentless in reaching the goal of becoming the NYSE of Latin America & The Caribbean, as no such platform exists in the region. 

So the journey continues and we are grateful you are joining us!! We will be updating you regularly, but don't forget to follow us on Facebook, Telegram, Instagram, Twitter and/or LinkedIN. Also, don't forget to tell your colleagues, friends and family about what we are up to and how they can invest in changing lives and boosting economies!

Cheers,
Team OuroX

P.S. If you have any questions for us, we're happy to answer them. Shoot us an email: info@OuroX.io
