GAINS AMA at UniFarm

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

Hello @Firunner

We welcome Alexandre Raffin – CEO of GAINS Associates for an AMA here!

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

Looking forward to it, thanks for having me!

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

🀝Welcome to Unifarm Community 😊

We are good to go now!

Can you please introduce yourself to the UniFarm Community?

Would love to hear more about your background and stuff πŸ”₯

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

Absolutely!

I’m from Paris, France, as you might be able to tell by the background of my current profile pic ahah.

I studied Computer Science and got a Master’s Degree, but wasn’t really interested in having a regular job.

Before crypto, I was a professional League of Legends player, ranked 300 in Europe, participated in some tournaments and played in front of a few hundred people. It was a great experience even though it was very hard mentally to train for 10 hours+ per day!

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

[In reply to Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹]

Haha yeah it’s very clear on your dp. BTW I love Paris ❀️

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

Other than that, I like sports. I often run, do calisthenics or climb.

And for the topic at hand, I’ve been in crypto for nearly 4 years 24/7 so I’ve seen a lot of shit and have the scars to prove it. I know a lot of people and how most things work πŸ™ƒ

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

[In reply to Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹]

4 Years in Crypto means a graduation in crypto for meπŸ˜„.

Lets move ahead with our moderator questionsπŸ”₯

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

[In reply to Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first]

Happy to show you around when you come πŸ™‚

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

So before we go for a trip to Paris let me take you for a walk with few moderator questions😊

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

So poetic sir, you’re an artist

Go for it πŸ‘

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

[In reply to Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹]

Okay here goes the first one😊

1. Your website talks a lot about you guys but our users would love to hear from you the story of GAINS, How it all started and the team behind it?

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

For sure. It’s a story I like to tell

We started by investing personally small amounts in ICOs with a few friends, testing the market back at the end of 2017. Quickly, we discovered pool groups and invested in a few of them to get those famous juicy bonuses. But it didn’t feel safe at all, trusting strangers with our money like that. Especially since many were anonymous (99% of these groups ended up disappearing / exit scamming btw). 

So, we just decided to create our own group: we would have control of the funds and sleep better at night, and most importantly, I felt like it could be the start of a great journey with like-minded people, which is so important in life.

Btw, GAINS is a catchy name because we’re all here for the crazy returns that crypto can offer but it also means Group Action Is Never Small, embodying the pooling and collaboration spirit

I often like to say that we do some kind of decentralized due diligence too with our members. Even though we now have a dedicated research team, you can’t beat several hundred people that look at a project. They’ll see things and ask questions you didn’t think about, which is awesome and very powerful

The above is, I believe, one of the reasons we’ve been so successful. We have a very tight core community that’s growing slowly with great people. We’re in it together, we invest together. So, we share our thoughts openly and have constructive discussions, and this is how we thrive.

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

[In reply to Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹]

I am so excited now and would love to know more about your project in this AMA.

So providing a safe platform to individual investors is a safe heaven for  any investor. Here comes my next question.

2. What investment opportunities does Gains provide?

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

This video might give you some idea of the projects our members (and now holders of the $GAINS token) have had access to: https://youtu.be/HoBMQ0apaFU.

It’s quite simple: you might be aware of public sales in launchpads. We get in at the private sale and seed round stages. Which means, it’s more risky and you have to lock your capital for a longer period of time but there’s usually a lot more upside, as you buy the token cheaper.

Some projects we’ve had, just to name a few: Quant Network, Avalanche and Reef Finance πŸ™‚

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

[In reply to Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹]

Wow!! This short video would clear a lot of questions for a user😍

So yeah I agree that entering the projects in presales would  benefit much, but how does the allocation part work? This takes us to our next question.

3. What is the ranking system for allocation at Gains platform? Can you please explain to our users?

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

Good question! 

Very practically, if you want to get in on our deals, you’d need to buy some $GAINS tokens. There’s already more than 1,000 holders. There are 4 tiers. The more tokens you hold, the higher the tier, and the bigger amount you can invest for each deal. Sometimes, some exclusive deals are also reserved for the highest tiers but even in the low tiers you get access to fantastic deals.

β€” GAINS Tiers β€”

🐳 Tier 1: GAINS Blue Whales – 200,000 GAINS required

🦈 Tier 2: GAINS Baby Sharks – 100,000 GAINS required

🐬 Tier 3: GAINS Sleek Dolphins – 30,000 GAINS required

🐟 Tier 4: GAINS Silver Fishes – 10,000 GAINS required

When you’ve bought enough $GAINS, you can then talk to our friendly bot @gainsy_bot. You’ll need to sign a message from your wallet to prove you’re the owner of the address and finally you’ll receive a link to join one of our private groups

Here’s the link to the Uniswap pair of the $GAINS token: https://app.uniswap.org/#/swap?outputCurrency=0xd9b312d77bc7bed9b9cecb56636300bed4fe5ce9

It is very cheap right now imo ahah, so it could be a good opportunity to get in. Not financial advice πŸ˜›

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

[In reply to Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹]

πŸ₯³πŸ₯³It means demand for $GAINS keeps on increasing with time. This is a must buy token for our Unifarmers including me😍

I would sure knock the doors of your bot after filling my bags now πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

Absolutely, even though our token price took a beating in the last month, like all the other altcoins, it’s still above 2x the private sale price. I believe this is because we have a real utility for it. There’s a big portion of the supply that’s effectively locked in our members’ wallets, so that they can remain members of our private groups.

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

I think you have answered this question earlier but to my curiosity would love to know more about the name

4. Why the name GAINS? Any special purpose for the special name?

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

[In reply to Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first]

Ah yes, I answered this a bit above πŸ™‚ Maybe I can talk quickly about our logo then. It’s a whale made of fishes. It shows that many retailers together can become as impactful (or more) than a whale. 

We’ve been showing it by getting so many people that have small wallets in amazing deals usually reserved to wealthy people, influencers or very well connected guys. It’s also been shown with GME: how people in mass can defeat big Hedge Funds β€” until centralization fucks them over lol, which is why having a fairer playfield in crypto is good (we’re still getting there ahah)

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

Now you seem like an artist for me… very in depth meaning to your logo😍πŸ”₯

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

Thanks!

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

Now before moving to our last question.Let me add a reminder to all the Unifarmers. Get ready with your questionsπŸ”₯πŸ”₯

Here comes the last question from my end. I am very much excited for this answer.

5. What is the next big thing in your milestone for which you are more excited?

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

We’re about to release our web platform to handle all the logistics regarding our deals. Contributions and token claims will be made through Smart Contracts and our members will enjoy a neat dashboard with all the information they need like when tokens are unlocked, terms of the deals, the performance, a pie chart with their various investments shown in percentages and more.

We’re also working on two other projects that should go live in September πŸ˜„

One of them, we’ve been working on with a team of 10 devs and a few designers for the past 8 months ahah.

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

That would make the flow very smoothπŸ”₯πŸ”₯

So @Firunner, Are you ready for our community questions now ??😊

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

I was born ready sir, bring it 😎

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

Unmuting now!!

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first:

The floor is all yours @Firunner , please try to answer at least 5 community questions 😊

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹:

So many questions, thanks!

Community Questions

TH070,

Q. Do you plan to burn or redeem any tokens from the market in the future? Or burn  GAINS  ‘s token itself?

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹,

[In reply to TH070]

Yes. We’ve already done one buy-back and burn and will continue doing so. See below

🚨 First GAINS Buyback & Burn for 40,000 USDC

πŸ’Έ More than 140,000 $GAINS have been burned 

πŸ’ͺ While the market tanks, we put our money where our mouth is and we keep on working. We are not slowing down at all. In fact, in the last 10 days, we have hired 2 senior devs and a designer. The plan is still to bring you the best deals and build the best investment platform, brand and community.

πŸ”₯ Find the burn transaction here: https://etherscan.io/tx/0xe440e2e651b6db22ca6e660d560374903f04aee1eb05d52c20b9cc7c1987f025

KhΓ΄i, 

Q. Currently, most investors are only interested in profit at this time and ignore long-term benefits. So can you give them some advice why they should buy and hold  GAINS  ‘s token in the long run?

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹,

[In reply to KhΓ΄i]

It’s true most people don’t really take the time to understand projects or get to know the team and the founders to judge if they should hold or dump. The most blatant example of this are the launchpad users: they don’t care about projects at all and just flip. By getting in on private sales with GAINS, at least there’s a vesting, so you’re with the project for a small journey, which is much better for all the parties involved. 

Regarding why holding $GAINS, there are various qualities required to succeed but here’s one that we have for sure: we’re persistent. And I believe persistent beats nearly everything in the long run πŸ™‚

Btw, even though I’ll have a lot of team tokens in the future, I’ve been regularly buying $GAINS on Uniswap, especially at these prices.

DERRY,SΒ©, 

I don’t know whom to ask, but I saw there at UniFarm, GAINS/cohort 15, the pool was full even for maks staking at 180K.

So, users need to wait for next 66 day???

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹,

[In reply to DERRY,SΒ©]

We have a very active community and our users did fill the UniFarm pool faster than any other project before πŸ’ͺ

This is one of our strengths when we help projects btw. When GAINS invests, there’s hundreds of people behind it, instead of having just one big name VC, we bring organic support.

Nakata Sakoy, 

How do you maintain investor confidence when the Gain token price is falling like it is today? What have you done and will you do?

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹,

[In reply to Nakata Sakoy]

We know we have a duty to our investors and we do our best every day. Right now, it’s not the best time for a lot of marketing in many groups (you guys are lucky I’m here πŸ™ˆ). It’s hard to fight a global market trend in crypto. So, what we do is we keep on building and pushing to find the best projects for our community. When the market switches, we’ll be ready to take advantage of it.

Thanh Join, 

Q. What plans does  GAINS  have for the crypto market? And what stage is the project in the market right now?

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹,

[In reply to Thanh Join]

We believe there will always be a need for investment. It’s crazy to think otherwise. Capital flows and humans have ideas that will need to be funded. Some people are saying that pool/DAO tokens will all go to 0. I don’t think so at all πŸ™‚ I truly believe there is room for some top tier decentralized VCs growing as big if not bigger (thanks to the network effect) than traditional VCs.

Our goal is one day to be seen as the BlackRock or Y Combinator of crypto.

Srikanth Kishan || Will not dm you first,

Well, the community round was really Amazing!

Got to know a lot about the Gains Associates and their upcoming milestones

Please Share your Socials with our Community @Firunner 😊

Alexandre Raffin | GAINS Associates πŸ‹, 

Thanks for all the questions, it was great. If I can give a last little push: the best investments are always made in a bear market πŸ™‚
