“We’ve now hit a critical mass of institutional engagement [in crypto]. Everyone from the major banks to PayPal and Square is getting more involved, which is a loud and clear signal that crypto is now an official asset class.”
Michael Novogratz, Co-founder & CEO, Galaxy Digital Holdings

Problem

NFTs, Bitcoin, blockchain, crypto — you can’t be online without coming across mention of the world of decentralized finance (DeFi). But DeFi can feel like the digital wild west if you’re not tech savvy.

In fact, only 16.9% of crypto buyers fully understand the value and potential of cryptocurrency [1].

Although DeFi is meant to be a cheaper, more efficient, and accessible alternative to traditional finance, the major players in the space are web-based and don’t cater to the everyday retail investor:

  • Slow and expensive transactions
  • Inaccessible and unfriendly experience for new or retail-focused consumers
  • Lack of dedicated, easy-to-use mobile apps for trading
  • Lackluster trading capabilities - e.g. no limit or stop loss orders, etc.
  • “Anonymous” developers not subject to any regulatory oversight or legal jurisdiction (often resulting in frauds and hacking)

It’s time to bring real global democratized finance to the average consumer.

Solution

Pink Panda is creating a global, user-friendly, socially impactful entryway to DeFi, aiming to bring financial returns historically reserved for the 1% to the 99%.

Our mobile app leverages the Binance Smart Chain to create a full block-chain powered DeFi ecosystem including:

  • The PinkPanda token ($PinkPanda)
  • Digital wallet with simple swap capabilities
  • Decentralized exchange (DEX) for trading

Our token is cryptocurrency with a cause: from day one, we’ve reserved a portion of the token supply to fund indefinite regular donations. And we’ve pledged to donate a portion of all future revenues to charitable causes.

Key Features

Today, our mobile app is live, allowing users to monitor their cryptocurrency investments on the Binance Smart Chain, monitor news and press surrounding PinkPanda, and provide community feedback through our “PinkPanda Polls”.

Once the final version of our app is live, Pink Panda app users will also be able to:

  • Access and hold crypto, without a middleman
  • Buy, trade, and sell crypto
  • Set order limits
  • Trade on margin
  • Use a credit or debit card to buy crypto
  • Engage with the larger community
  • Choose the charities Pink Panda donates to

“A good way to imagine the long-term impact of DeFi is to think about it in comparison to the internet in the 80s and 90s...The people who used the internet in the very beginning were die-hard technologists because the internet was very difficult to use… Eventually, it’s [going to be] just like the internet [today]: there’s going to be so many people online...everyone starts to adopt it.”
- Alex Pack, Co-founder of Dragonfly Capital & Advisor to Huobi Crypto Exchange

Business Model

As we continue to grow and mature our application and token, we plan to generate revenue through:

  • 25 basis points on transactions on the Pink Panda DEX
  • Sales of the token from the Pink Panda company wallets
  • A fee on fiat (ex: USD) purchases of crypto
  • A fee of up to 5 basis points on swap transactions using the Pink Panda Wallet

Market

Crypto is a growing asset class: the Total Value Locked (TVL), a measure of cryptocurrency value housed inside of DeFi protocols, grew by 88x from May 2020 to May 2021, according to Forbes. Additionally, aggregate trading volume in USD on decentralized exchanges increased almost 6x between September 2020 and May 2021 [2].

Crypto trading is becoming increasingly popular with retail investors: it dominates one of the most well-known retail trading apps, with 60% of all Q2 2021 Robinhood trading occurring in cryptocurrency.

In fact, about a third of American investors say they trade crypto on a monthly or weekly basis, and nearly one-quarter said they trade the asset daily, according to a recent CNBC investment survey.

However, one in three crypto buyers actually has either zero knowledge or an “emerging” understanding of the space [3].

Pink Panda provides a unique, mobile-first experience in the DeFi space that centers around a neglected group of consumers: retail investors interested in crypto who aren’t financial and/or technology experts.

Our focus on a user-friendly mobile app in a web-based ecosystem is also key: in 2019, mobile-first companies had a combined $544 billion valuation, 6.5x higher than those without a mobile focus, Techcrunch reports.
