DeFiner platform has an auto-insured account which is yield-optimized and connected to both retail and institutional lenders as well as borrowers.
DeFiner has a pool of lending funds and algorithms that automatically lend funds, that are not borrowed in its internal lending, to competing markets. The platform is powered by FIN tokens which are used for governance and voting as well as for distributing the profits for token holders, transaction fees and interest collected. Contributors lending capital and collateral on the network, lenders and borrowers are also entitled to a portion of the newly mined FIN.
The platform has integrated on-chain settlement of OTC loans and fixed-period, fixed-rate loans, as well as the savings pool.

Initial circ supply is small and initial mc only 660k. We have seen what happened with DeFi projects with initial mc around $0,5M. Many pumped even more than x10.
Private sale A had the best price at $0.25. They get 10% or 126k tokens day1. That would make $75,6k at public price $0,6. With x2,4 ROI. That is not a problem for late buyers and public investors.
The same goes for private sale B which will get 20% unlocked at the listing. At the public price, their unlocked tokens would be worth $200k. But only x1,5 ROI for them. With such a small initial market cap, private investors expect higher ROI.
Foundation (25% allocation all together) starts getting a bigger share of their tokens after 1 month, the same goes for partners and advisors (11,6% allocation all together). Team and equity investors have 20% tokens allocated and start getting first tokens after one year with 12 months vesting from there. I am interested in equity investors tokens allocation and price. This info is not disclosed.

The public sale dissection:
DeFiner will have 3 rounds for public sale, all with $0,6 token price. Public sale individual cap will be $300 and there will be no lock-up.
Round 1 is for a strategic partner is invite based and reserved for angel investors who commit to KPIs for adding a high degree of value to the project. 35,000 FIN ($21,000).
Round 2 is meant for strong holders offering (SHO) of OPT. The target token for DeFiner’s SHO is OpenPredict ($OPT). OPT’s liquidity providers and strongest holders can earn a DeFiner allocation. At 4 pm UTC on September 18, a lottery will be conducted. 100,000 FIN ($60,000).
Round 3 is for anyone who is interested in getting FIN allocation. Whitelist applications will go live at 12 pm UTC on September 19. This is not a race; you will have 48 hours. Applicants will have until 12 pm UTC on September 21 to fill-out the whitelist form. 25,000 FIN ($15,000).
I guess this will be really hard to enter as small hard caps reserved for both available public Rounds 2 and 3. Round 3 has only a $15k raise.
