What is SIFT


Smart Investment Fund Token (SIFT) is a closed-end day-trading cryptocurrency and forex hedge fund based on volume analyses and proprietary trading algorithms with a proven track record over 10 years in forex.

SIFT pays 85% generated monthly profit back to its investor. Half by fund growth, half by paying out monthly dividends in ETH.

SIFT a trading fund based on proprietary volume analysis techniques known as Smart Volume Analysis that have been developed over the last decade. Despite being a well-known name within forex trading markets, Smart has only recent started to promote its algorithms within the cryptocurrency space and is now offering an investment vehicle that brings its combination of human trading and artificial intelligence to blockchain technology.

SIFT aims to get a minimum return of investment to be around 4% a month. This is a cautious pessimistic view in crypto world, but for sure archivable based on SIFTs experience and expertise in the forex market. The aim is much higher but the team won’t speculate on that.

SIFT Payout Structure

Dividends will be paid out of the fund each month (first Monday) when the fund has made a profit on that month.

SIFT dividend payouts are calculated by this formula ((Profit * 0.85 ) / 2) / 722935 = payout per SIFT.
15% is taken of monthly profit as fees. The remainder is divided by 2. One part goes into fundgrowth the other part will go back to the SIFT holders as dividend in the form of Ethereum at the first Monday of the month. If there was no profit then no management fees will be charged and no dividend is paid.

After ICO 15% ($253,564.85) was taken for operational costs, no fees are taken until that initial 15% is earned back.

Go to the SIFT dividend calculator to see how many dividend you would receive.

Dividends in this table are without the 15% fee because SIFT is not taking fee yet

To get a $1000 quarterly dividend you need 240,419 XSFT tokens with current estimated profit.
With 5000 XSFT profit needs to be $340,204.71 to get a $1000 quarterly dividend.
SIFT Yields
Dividend yields are the ratio between annual payment(s) and price.

Indicated Annual Yield last dividend ($0.002410 per XSFT)
The indicated annual yield is the ratio between annual dividend and token price.
((last div * annual payments) / price) x 100%
Indicated yield with dividend day price ($0.54):5.361513%
Indicated yield with current price ($0.73): 3.964485%
Indicated yield with ico price ($2.34): 1.236796%
Average Annual Yield ($0.006739 per XSFT)
The average annual yield is the ratio between the dividend average of last 12 months and token price.
((avg dividend * annual payments) / token price) x 100%
Average yield with dividend day price ($0.54): 14.991707%
Average yield with current price ($0.73): 11.085379%
Average yield with ico price ($2.34): 3.458293%

What does a 3.96% yield mean? Simple you need 100 / 3.96 = 25 years and 3 months with the same dividend to earn your investement back if you buy the tokens now with current price. The higher the yield the faster you earn back your investement.

SIFT Roadmap

Several things going on at the moment to improve trading and profit. Some directly related to the fund some indirect related to the fund and more core business of Logical Trading Systems (Sifts mother company. Funds are moving to Luxembourg, trading algorithms are constantly improved. Voting on automated trade entries, marked making, position building arbitrage and forex trading all voted (almost unanimous) “Yes”

Since March 2018 there are two tokens (SIFT and XSFT).

SIFT: 0x8a187d5285d316bcbc9adafc08b51d70a0d8e000 decimals 0
XSFT: 0x1d074266bca9481bdeee504836cfefee69092a28 decimals 6

Both tokens are eligible for dividends and the swap is not mandatory. The old SIFT had two problems. It doesn’t have decimals and transferring old SIFT requires huge gas limits.

You can swap old SIFT at zapple.com All you need to do is sending old Sift there to be destroyed and replaced by XSFT.

Zapple is Sifts internal trading platform. Trading on Zapple is feeless, but you do pay a 0.5 SIFT fee to swap the old SIFT to XSFT. If you send old Sift to zapple we recommend sending all your old SIFT at once instead of several. And all sift on Zapple is eligible for dividend, even if it is and open sell order.

Transfering old SIFT requires huge gas limit. See article below.

RAIF (Reserved Alternative Investment Fund)
Sift is moving funds from London to Luxembourg based fund (RAIF). The main purpose is to avoid 19% tax on each trade. It turned out to be a very slow process started December 2017
• April 2018: Hope for account finalized, then start applying for accounts
• May 2018: Start moving over funds.
• Sept 2018: Aim to have all funds into RAIF

It was voted by the community to also do forex trading, since crypto results were disappointing due to onset problems. 100K fund money was moved to forex account.
• April 2018: Moving up to 200K into forex trading
• After RAIF: Moving up to 750K into forex trading

Automated Entries
One of the main problems in crypto trading are / where missed trades because the entry points happens during off hours. (Sift has only one trader). It was voted to use bot to start trades when the moments are good.
• March: Major algorithmic changes and forward testing
• April: Go live $10,000 positions
• May: Increase position sizes
• June: Once market making is live we can look at EOM bot to take advantage of lower fee structures
• Ongoing optimization per chart

Position Building
It was voted yes also to pick up more trades. It turned out to be a bad timing. Position building was done in bear market and market still have to recover. About 500K is involved in position building currently at a loss.
Position building will be fased out in time. Current crypto will be used for market making and lending

Market Making
Completely automated process to make profit in sideways going markets and take profit between the difference in buy and sell price. It was voted yes to start building the bots for it.
• Already testing
• Fees can be a killer – needs the volume to get these down
• April: Finish testing
• May: Aim to start, depending on how testing goes

Taking profit in price differences between exchanges
• Small tests have shown very long timescales and unreliable exchanges can cause delays and frozen funds
• Needs all funds into RAIF, extra bank accounts and brokers
• Smaller potential to move within exchanges (EUR:USD)
• May/June: Automate internal arbitrage opportunities on exchanges
• Q3 2018: Start in full

Transfering OLD SIFT

• If you send OLD SIFT to an empty wallet, after you just bought it for example you need a huge gas limit. You also need a huge limit when you want to move all your SIFT from your wallet. If you want to send them to or from Etherdelta / Forkdelta you need to interact with the Etherdelta smart contract through MyEtherWallet. In this article you can read how. Be aware of the very high gas limits. Recommended limits in table below.

SenderRecipientSuggested gas limitCost @ 1 gweiCost @ 21 gweiCost @ 50 gwei
Sends ALL SIFTHas no SIFT5,000,0000.005 ETH0.105 ETH0.25 ETH

Sends some SIFTHas some SIFT60,0000.00006 ETH0.00126 ETH0.003 ETH

This problem only happens with the old SIFT token (ticker SIFT) and not with the new SIFT token (ticker XSFT). And please sent all your old SIFT at a very low gas price (the gwei settings) . It still is a pain to my eyes seeing sift moved around at $60 – $250 transaction fees.

Pros en cons

• Fund can go long as well as short in crypto. Although there was not a single crypto short in the bear market first quarter 2018

• SIFT is a democratic organization with voting on all major decisions about the fund’s future. (first votes has happened)

• Daily reporting of account balances and fund values.

• Human oversight and control of all trades – artificial intelligence is used only to enhance, rather than replace, decades of human expertise.

• More than excellent communication from the team (Guy Powell and James May) in the SIFT telegram channel moderated by one of the best in the business :-)

• SIFT does not trade during the night or in the weekends. A vote to use bots to start a trade when signals are good but James is not monitoring the charts is voted yes and implemented in January 2018.

• Very low volume on Etherdelta. It is hard to buy or sell SIFT in large quantities. Most holders are in for the long time and are not selling.

Why you should buy Sift now!
why-you-should-buy-sift.jpgvr 8 jun; Sift is still very cheap, it even gets dumped below NAV sometimes. These are mostly from impatient investors, and I can’t blame them because Sift is still not producing the minimal 4% profit per month which they saw as a minimum mentioned in the whitepaper...
