About Savings

PECULIUM has always been a company driven to democratize access to investment opportunities previously available only to the very wealthy. The development of blockchain technology has been a key factor in enabling this ongoing financial revolution. But blockchain goes beyond offering a more efficient replica of the traditional financial ecosystem: it enables new business models that are better aligned with the incentives of all market participants.

PECULIUM has developed, a crypto investment and asset management platform that connects to exchange accounts and gives users instant access to vetted trading strategies and investment portfolios. Established to simplify trading strategy for users without any technical experience, PECULIUM has a growing range of automated investment products.

Our goal is to reduce inequality in the world’s traditional financial system by giving everyone, no matter how much capital they own, access to some of the best investment opportunities. PECULIUM is an economic equalizer powered by PCL, the cornerstone of our ecosystem. The launch of the PECULIUM Token (PCL) was another important step in this direction for PECULIUM. It is a community token designed to give back to our loyal investor community, while at the same time encouraging predictable and mutually beneficial long-term investment positions in SAIEVE Investment products. The token is issued to PECULIUM investors who choose to lock up (or stake) their assets under management for predefined periods, contributing to additional expected returns on investments within the investment product universe. By having more certainty about the duration of holding investment positions in PECULIUM investment products, opportunities arise for generating better investment returns.

PCL acts as an indirect revenue-sharing mechanism as it derives its value from discounts on product fees used to buy and destroy PCL in the open market (so-called buy-and-burns). Parallels can be drawn between buy-and-burns and the phenomenon of share buybacks in traditional markets.
