WHO WE ARE
Shaman Trading is a Trading Service Platform that leverages AI technology to provide clients with exposure to cryptocurrency trading. With a commitment to innovation and excellence, Shaman Trading is dedicated to delivering exceptional services and value to clients and shareholders.
WHAT WE DO
We have developed a proprietary Trading Algorithm, which incorporates multiple specialised strategies designed for varying market conditions.
Our primary objective is to maximise returns while minimising risk for investors in the cryptocurrency market.
Our aim is to provide our clients with reliable, effective trading services and investment opportunities.
WHO WE LOOK FOR
We seek private investors, angel investors, or VCs who seek exposure in trading platforms, crypto, web3, or DAOs and share our vision.
Funding will be allocated to product and tech platform development, operational expenses and building out our service offering. We expect to launch our trading services throughout 2023.
Our business model is straightforward.
Our clients pay us fees for our Trading Services, which consist of our Subscription Service and Managed Account Service. A portion of the fees is allocated towards our business expenses.
The remaining funds are reinvested into our Internal Trading Operation, where we utilise our proprietary Trading Algorithm. In addition, we collaborate with Trading Marketplaces and Proprietary Trading Firms to increase liquidity and enhance our returns, which are then reinvested in our Proprietary Trading Desk.
STT Token Holders and Shaman Trading Ltd. Shareholders stand to benefit from dividends and capital gains resulting from our profitable trading activities.
STT Token Holders will see their Token Value increase over time.
With each Investment Round, the STT Token price increases in increments from a starting price of $0.13 in Round 1 to $0.26 in Round 2 and $0.58 in Round 3.
Once we launch our Buy-Back Scheme in 2024, we will buy back your Tokens at a Multiplier of 5x on the Net Asset Value.
Additionally, Token Holders will be able to realise the value of their investment by trading out of their position on decentralised crypto exchanges (DEX) like Uniswap.
STT Token Holders will be able to earn passive income with our Dividend Scheme (expected to launch in 2024).
Each quarter, we distribute a % of the profits we make with the Shaman Trading Algorithm to all Token Holders relative to the size of their holdings.
The amount you'll receive varies depending on your stake in the DAO, the performance of the Shaman Trading Algorithm and the % of profits distributed via Dividend.
STT Token Holders enjoy exclusive benefits like discounted rates on our Trading Services and being eligible to participate in the Referral Scheme.
Furthermore, the governance of Shaman Trading will eventually move into the hands of the Token Holders, creating a socially conscious structure. STT Token Holders will be able to vote on topics such as new upcoming projects, distribution of funds & profits and more.
This approach puts the power and success of Shaman Trading into the community's hands.

Shaman Trading is a new generation Crypto Trading Firm that operates proprietary fully automated Trading Strategies in an Algorithm for Crypto Futures.
The Trading Algorithm is designed to generate maximum returns with minimum drawdowns.
Technically there is no minimum amount you have to invest. However, to make it worthwhile for yourself, we advise to invest somewhere between $1,000 and $5,000 in Round 1.
To contribute to the DAO of Shaman Trading please follow the link.
Next step connect your MetaMask wallet with DAO. Click on 'Finance' and click on the button 'New Transfer'.
Choose for your deposit the token (USDT, BUSD, USDC), type the amount and your name as reference. Confirm the transaction and follow the next steps in your MetaMask Wallet to verify the transaction on the Polygon Network.
Alternatively, you can also directly transfer to our DAO Treasury Account. We have wallets on Polygon and Ethereum.
Shaman Trading is accepting Stable Coins such as USDT, BUSD, and USDC. When you contribute to the DAO make sure you have the currency in your MetaMask Wallet available.
Once the Round has concluded the tokens will be airdropped to your designated wallet.
To see the tokens in your Wallet, you need to import the Token first.
This is the Token contract address: 0xC660d9D591E7e942d6F1641959f54685608bb8E8
A DAO is a digital autonomous organization that operates on a blockchain network without intermediaries. It is decentralized, transparent, and democratic, with decisions made by the consensus of its members. DAOs can serve various purposes, such as investment funds, social networks, and governance structures.
Shaman Trading selected a DAO to raise funds because it aligns with the company's values of transparency, decentralization, and democratic decision-making. The use of smart contracts on a Polygon network ensures secure and efficient fundraising, while also promoting equitable and inclusive investment opportunities.
Shaman Trading chose the Polygon network for its fast and cost-effective transactions, scalability, and interoperability with Ethereum. The most important points to remember are:
- Polygon's network offers fast and affordable transactions, making it attractive to DAOs.
- The network's scalability is crucial for DAOs that require frequent transactions or have a large number of members.
- Polygon's interoperability with Ethereum allows for easy integration with existing blockchain platforms.
Here's what you need to invest in the DAO:
- Create an account at MetaMask (Web3 Wallet) - It is avaible as App or Browser Extension
- Save your Seedphrase and never share or lose it.
- Add the Polygon Network via settings.
- Fund the Wallet with MATIC via transaction from another Wallet or use services via MoonPay or Transak
- Add contracts for Stablecoins USDT, USDC or BUSD to your Wallet and buy, swap or send the amount you want to invest to your wallet
MATIC is the native token of the Polygon network, to which MetaMask is connected to. Transaction fees on the network are paid in MATIC, so you need to have enough in your MetaMask wallet to execute transactions, i.e. investing in Shaman Trading via DAO. Furthermore, you need to have MATIC in your account as an investor to partake in important decisions via voting. Every decision within the DAO requires a vote from founders and investors.
There are different ways how to transfer the preferred stable coin into MetaMask.
1. If you already own some stable coins you can just make a transaction to your MetaMask Wallet. Make sure you chose Polygon Network before submitting the order.
2. If you do not own any stable coins then you can use the service of MoonPay or Transak and receive the coins.
First and foremost, every Token Holder is eligible to vote in the DAO.
There is a separate section for 'Voting'. A new proposal can be created by any Token Holder and all Token Holders can then vote on it.
The governance rules are made up of two factors. Minimum Approval and Support.
Minimum Approval is the percentage of the total token supply that is required to vote “Yes” on a proposal before it can be approved. For the Shaman Trading DAO this is set to 21%.
Support is the relative percentage of tokens that are required to vote “Yes” for a proposal to be approved. For the Shaman Trading DAO this is set to 51%.
The return on your investment varies depending on how long you stay invested in the DAO and how profitable the Trading Algorithm is going to be.
The longer you stay invested, the bigger your return is going to be.
Assuming a monthly return of 7% with the Trading Algorithm, we expect Round 1 Investors to break-even by the End of 2024 and have made at least a 50% return by the End of 2025.
Your investment return is realised in 2 ways:
First, there is the Dividend Scheme, which is expected to launch in 2024.
The Dividend Yield is about 2.6% and we will distribute 30% of the Net Profits via Dividends. The Dividend is paid out quarterly in Stablecoins.
Secondly, there is the Buy-Back Scheme, which is expected to launch in 2024 as well.
For the Buy-Back Scheme we dedicate 5% of the Net Profits to buying back your STT Tokens either directly or via a decentralised Exchange (DEX) like Uniswap.
The STT Tokens will be bought back at a 5x premium on the Net Asset Value.
The Bahamas provides some unique advantages, including its well-regulated financial sector, strong infrastructure, and favourable tax framework, to foster an environment conducive to our client's prosperity. This strategic move enables us to offer an extensive range of services, including trading, investment advisory, and wealth management, all while adhering to rigorous compliance standards.
That depends on your circumstances. If you have less than $10k to invest, your only option is to buy tokens. If you have more than $10k to invest, you can consider investing via the IBC, however, you will need to disclose personal information and will have less liquidity available to realise your investment. If you have more than $10k to invest, you can also opt for a dual-class investment, where you hold some of your investment in equity in the IBC and some in Tokens. Contact us for further details.
Yes, you can swap your equity into tokens and vice versa at a 1:1 token-equity ratio.
However, due to the costs associated with changing equity stakes in the IBC and issuing new share certificates, a one-time fee of $500 will be charged for any token-equity swaps.
