ANKORUS
Financial and Crypto Worlds Linked
By Blockchain Technology

ABSTRACT
T
he advent of blockchain
technology allows for the creation
of asset-backed tokens, where each token can be pegged
to the value of a corresponding security held in reserve.
Blockchain technology also enables the transcending of
old geographical barriers to entry. Tokens can be traded online from
anywhere, quickly and cheaply, and can be sold as fractionalised
assets, further lowering financial barriers to entry. Ankorus will
establish an online exchange populated by any financial asset
currently available worldwide. Various auditing measures will
be taken to establish transparency, and customers will be able to
validate that tokenised assets are fully backed and held by Ankorus.
Ankorus prioritises responsive customer care as a core value.

​INTRODUCTION
MISSION
Ankorus will forge a vital new connection from the crypto sphere to the established world of finance,
enriching both with enhanced levels of opportunity and security.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Ankorus will enable cryptoholders to buy real world financial assets. In exchange for cryptocurrency,
Ankorus will create and allocate tokens that are exactly value-pegged to their corresponding assets.
The natural result we expect to be a radical disruption to the traditional financial world, which too
often serves too few.
Where some rivals simply
expose
their customers to assets, Ankorus will actually secure and hold
them for you.
Cryptoholders could truly diversify their portfolios across multiple asset classes. Harnessing
innovative technology, Ankorus is initiating a new landscape of frictionless trading, beyond
geographical boundaries and prohibitive financial barriers.
Vibrant markets require liquidity, and by our plan to link the crypto world with that of...

With all the requisite track records, our core team and advisors are well positioned to
lead the crypto expansion into the financial world. The brainchild of seasoned trader
CEO John Cruz (a veteran of global exchanges such as CME, CBOT and Eurex), Ankorus
was born from a deep personal dissatisfaction with the old model. The resulting
solution arises from a natural synthesis of breakthrough technology and more
than two decades of hard-won trading experience.
​The Ankorus team is filled with experienced professionals from the
financial community, including a former member of Morgan Stanley’s
global FX business, and senior software innovators from the frontiers
of technology, including one of Zynga’s original engineers. Our
solution is the inspired but logical crystallisation of where we’ve
been and where we’re all to go next. In common, we share a
conviction that the time is both right and ripe to disrupt the
legacy financial order, to potentially supplant it with an
update m...

WHAT SPARKED THE ANKORUS REVOLUTION?
A Message from John Cruz, CEO
A trader’s job is to be right about a lot of things at the same time. That alone is hard enough.
Add to the mix the challenges of learning new trading platforms, coupled with poor onboarding and
customer support from vendors and exchanges, and it’s no wonder that trading is so frustrating,
expensive and difficult to get right.
All that was before 2013 and the advent of cryptocurrencies. But this new trading arena is sadly even
worse. Vendors and exchanges have substandard, and occasionally criminal, levels of competency,
security and support. And that's not counting the ever present threat of hacking.
I’ve traded stocks, bonds, futures, options, metals, commodities, currencies and cryptocurrencies.
I’ve also been trading electronically for most of that time, beta testing almost every platform ever
used. After 25 years, I cannot go through this rebirth all over again.
So, I am creating this platform for me and to share with t...

TECHNOLOGY
AND PROCESSES
The Anchor Token system will be an alternative investment ecosystem that tokenises and makes
available any financial instrument, including stocks, bonds, futures, options, gold, silver, commodities,
REITs, ETFs and sovereign debt.
When our customers purchase Anchor Tokens, we will immediately purchase the corresponding
asset. Ankorus, as trusted custodian, holds this asset in reserve.
Token holders can exchange their Anchor Tokens on the Ankorus token exchange, AnchorNet, or
redeem their value directly from us.

SECURITY TOKENIZATION
Ankorus will be able to tokenise into an Anchor Token any financial asset that’s currently available.

Ankorus will make available for purchase any financial assets currently traded worldwide, such as
AMZN, FB, SBUX, BIDU, AAPL, US T-Bills and Bonds, USD, CHF, JPY, SPY, GLD, ZKB Gold, Crude Oil.

TRADING ANCHOR TOKENS
Token holders will be able to trade their Anchor Tokens for other Anchor Tokens on AnchorNet, our
planned proprietary Anchor Token exchange platform (see
The
AnchorNet Trading Platform
) and
also on any other available cryptocurrency exchanges.
ACCREDITED BEARERS AND BENEFICIARIES
OF ANCHOR TOKENS
The owner of Anchor Tokens is referred to by Ankorus as the Accredited Bearer. The Accredited
Bearer will be able to redeem Anchor Tokens from Ankorus or trade them on the secondary market,
AnchorNet. The Accredited Bearer will be either the initial purchaser of the Anchor Tokens, a
beneficiary of the initial purchaser, or a purchaser from the secondary market AnchorNet.
The Accredited Bearer will be able to nominate and identify beneficiaries to whom the Anchor
Tokens are to be bequeathed. Once the Anchor Tokens have been transferred to the beneficiary, the
beneficiary becomes the new Accredited Bearer.
