Investment attractiveness
Market
According to MarketsandMarkets, the mobile money market size is estimated to grow from USD 21.15 Billion in 2016 to USD 112.29 Billion by 2021, at an estimated Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 39.64% from 2016 to 2021. In the current scenario, the adoption of digital financial transaction has increased which has given a thrust to the demand of mobile money. The exact split between different remittances providers is unknown, but it is clear Western Union and Moneygram have the biggest market share, which is slowly eaten away by new providers like Transferwise, Currencyfair, World Remit, and Azimo. It is necessary to note such company as WorldRemit - through its transformative technology and global network, WorldRemit facilitates more than 600,000 transactions a month, from over 50 countries to 140+ destinations. With key partnerships with more than 6,000 money transfer corridors, the company enables migrants to send to more mobile money accounts than any other operator in the world.

Team
Established in 2013 and headquartered in London, UK, in 2016, Bank4YOU transformed into Bank4YOU Group, an international consortium of fin-tech service companies operating within the electronic mobile payment services arena. FCA License No715451, issued by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority authorizes Bank4YOU to provide credit. However, the TEAM has not been able to show explosive dynamics in international markets since 2013.
Model
The main component of the MMRS is a system of tokens tied to local currencies of the countries of system user’s countries, which enables fast, reliable and cheap remittance of values across the borders of states and continents. Operating such tokens makes it possible to increase the user trust in the system providing the simplest and the most understandable mechanism for converting fiat currencies into electronic ones. The issue of tokens occurs only on condition of the fiat money being brought into the system, which is intended to ensure the stability of the exchange rate. This makes it possible to offer lower fees, even when compared to the mobile money technology (for example, M-PESA charges a flat fee of $0.40 for P2P remittances and a withdrawal fee of $0.33 for withdrawals under $33), especially if there is no need for an instant execution of the transaction. In the event of increasing the transaction confirmation time to five minutes, the fee is significantly reduced. As can be seen, the remittance price in a public Blockchain Ethereum is much lower than that of any of the systems under consideration.
Finance
Based on current Bitcoin pricing and investments achieved by other similarly sized projects in the same sector, an indicative estimate for the total funding requirement is $10 million. This funding is required to support the company’s expansion into new markets and to develop enhanced services (including consumer micro-loans and the incorporation of Bitcoin and other crypto currencies within its money transfer services). Tokens will be issued in equivalent of $50 million, when the ICO will reach this hard cap it will be stopped ahead of scheduled dates. The scheduled duration of ICO is 50 days. The general amount of BFY tokens is 300.000.000. The professional team of specialists hired by Bank4YOU Group has provided the statistical analysis of the predicted performance revenues of above-mentioned operations, but when compared with compared with similar companies it is clear that forecasts are unrealistic.
