-Why it’s profitable
Fluxgift makes a profit since there is a discount on all purchases done on its platform, eg for a 100 USD gift card or bill payment, Fluxgift makes between 1-3% depending on the type of gift card/bill payment.
With more usage of the platform, We can get better deals from the gift card issuers.
How to get the initial audience
Our Initial Audience will be Nigerians currently having issues with converting their crypto to fiat to pay for services due to the recent CBN restrictions on deposit banks from processing off-ramps.
How to scale
We will scale by making the platform robust and also providing region-centric rewards, loyalty points, and offers.
KPIs (volume predictions / forecast; user base predictions / forecast)
At launch we expect the volume to be between 5,000- 7,000 USD/month while we do user acquisition in the first 4 month
UserBase Prediction: With offers and referral points and providing the best rates to providing services we predict an x3 user increase from the first month.
Market expansion plan
The market expansion plan is providing regional base service(bill payment and gift cards) starting with West Africa and onboarding more Africa-based services rapidly.
Investment opportunities (shares )
With this service success, we will be able to raise a round to expand across Africa once we start having more buy pressure on our credit than we are able to turn over.
how does the CFX to NGN/USDT conversion happen?
The liquidity provided from this proposal will be converted to USDT via Moondex and sent to our bill payment/ gift card Merchant which is used for each purchase done.
When a CFX holder buys a gift card or do a bill payment, the CFX returns to our wallet and the USDT is used for paying.
Initial Product listing and upcoming product listing?
We will have the following at launch. Airtime to (United States, Nigeria, Ghana) Bill Payment( Nigeria, Ghana).
Upcoming product list: Access to a wide range of US gift cards such as Google, PUGB, Amazon, etc.
