GAINS rocks 🚀 Let`s start with the introduction ! Q1: Can you introduce yourself to our community?
My name is Alexandre, I'm the CEO and Co-Founder of GAINS Associates. I'm from Paris, France. I have a Master's Degree in Computer Science. Before crypto, I was a professional League of Legends player, ranked 300 in Europe, participated in some tournaments, played in front of a few hundred people. It was a great experience! I like sports, I often run, do calisthenics or climb. With my team, we've been in crypto for 3 years+ 24/7 so we know a lot of people and how most things work :) done

Yes but also good to stop ahah. I'm happy I haven't played in the last 3 years 🙈

agree! Q2: Can you introduce GAINS Associates to us?
Sure. GAINS is the World's First Decentralized VC. This means that anyone with enough $GAINS tokens can get allocations into very hyped private sales that have crazy returns. GAINS means Group Action Is Never Small, which means that together we can have a lot of impact, sometimes more than the big names out there. This is very powerful. If you see what has happened with GME recently, the world is changing. People are challenging the power in place and the traditional way of doing things. I think it's wonderful and people should seize the opportunities that are in front of them this very moment because this feels like a unique time in history. done :)

The last one from me before we opne the caht for community round of questions! Q3: Let`s now talk about the milestones you have achieved so far and about your upcoming plans? I am sure this one is pretty interesting, you deifnitely smth to share with us
So far, GAINS has raised more than $5M for 50+ projects, including Avalanche (116x), Quant Network (57x), Reef.finance (62x), Bridge Mutual (42x) and many more. Recently, we also had the pleasure to invest in and support LABS Group and Cellframe that both did very well (50x+) I'm happy to say that we're recognized as a leading brand in the crypto space. Regarding our plans, we will of course keep on offering great deals, at a rate of approx 2 per week if the market stays like that. We will also incubate projects and have exclusivity over their raise. The first one will be unveiled in a few days. Maybe a good time to load up on $GAINS ahah. We will keep on building behind the scenes to develop an all-encompassing platform for people to track their investments with us and take care of all the logistics around that. Investing will be easy. done

1. The crypto world is growing rapidly and NOOBS are beginning to increase in the space thereby creating a huge market waiting to be tapped. And those ready for it might profit greatly. How is GAINS preparing for this and how easy is it to introduce GAINS to NOOBS? 2. How does GAINS aim to reward users who have been with them for a long time and have also provided value in the GAINS community?
Hey Hakeem, first question and what a great one! Indeed, we're very much aware that there's a huge market to be seized with the next adoption wave. We will have tutorials and step by step processes to make it easy for noobs to join crypto investing with us. Regarding the second question, we just published today our fair lottery system. Details are in the ama_article but essentially, it will reward long term holders: https://gainsassociates.medium.com/lottery-model-for-gains-deals-a-fair-system-a2c5799f5c0b

Hey, we follow standard security practices of using multi sig wallets, etc. Regarding deal security, we only do direct deals. Of course, the risk zero doesn't exist but it's extremely low thanks to our processes.

I've been a fan of Gains associate back in the days when you guys have not even thought of introducing your own token. I'm interested in joining your inner Tiers, but due to the large amount of fund required to purchase 10k gains token, i couldn't. Would you consider reviewing this allocation in the future so that retail investors won't be left out from the deals you would be offering?
If (when?) the price goes up too much, we will consider adding another tier with a lower threshold. For now, you can already participate to our lotteries for small holders and win allocation spots! Follow @GainsANN to not miss anything

How fair and transparent is GAINS Lottery Model? How many membership tiers are available? Can everyone in all tiers, who hold $GAINS token gain access to spicy deal?
These are the 4 Tiers: — GAINS Tiers — 🐳 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 Deals are always guaranteed in the T1, and almost always in the T2. In T3 and T4, it's often lotteries. The higher the tier, the bigger the allocations, and the more chance of getting in (since it's less crowded). Sometimes, exclusive deals will only be offered to T1/T2.

I read that GAINS private sale offerings have been around since 2018. Can you tell us what delayed the token development till 2021?
There were no plans to do a token until recently so there was no delay. It didn't take 3 years to get the token out 😁

Why did you feel the need to start a Gains project? What can Gains add to the blockchain world? There are many fraud projects. How will investors trust that Gains is not one of those projects?
Regarding trust, the best indicator is time and track record. Again, we have been here for 3 years+, have delivered tokens worth tens of millions of dollars, and we've shown our faces and profiles since the very beginning.

What is you strongest advantage that you think will make your team leading the market? and In contrast, what is your weakness? How do you plan to overcome it?
Our strongest advantage is that we keep on pushing every day. This is what happens if you're lazy at GAINS

What are the criteria that the GAINS community takes into account to decide whether or not to invest in a project? Can I blindly trust all of them?
How we choose projects: it's a mix of traditional due diligence + gut feeling. We have calls with execs of every project we run. You get to feel people after some time. I've had calls with hundreds of CEOs and it's almost always the same. They all believe they're going to change the world and that their project is the best 😂 So, you have to be able to distinguish between those who have a chance to do that and those who are in over their heads. So far, our judgement has been pretty good 😉 And I must say, it doesn't just come from us but also from the collective wisdom of our entire community, which is very powerful! And to answer if you can trust us blindly, well... Someone made this gif

As a community driven project and me a developer am interested in contributing to GAINS ...So, do you have such programs??
We're recruiting a lot these days (some job posts are coming). If you wanna contribute in such a serious way and have great skills, don't hesitate to reach out. There's a lot of work behind the scenes. Mainly looking for NodeJS + React devs these days but any skill (non coding) can be interesting. If you just wanna help spread the word, that's great and appreciated. It will be taken into account very soon: people who engage on social media will have a higher chance to get in on our deals.

Community is a key element for any project if you want to be successful, how can you ensure that the community is shared in governance? Do we need to place bets to get votes or do we need to run nodes?
We already listen to the community a lot (maybe too much, these mofos love to talk and argue 😅), so you could call that soft governance. In time, we plan to have a true DAO.

I follow your AMA activities happening on your GAINS telegram channel. I see that even though you warn the participants and do not give a reward, you cannot prevent the cheating thieves. Why not come together as group representatives and establish a common platform to prevent these bot account owner thieves that spoil the nature of the AMA activity and damage the information process of real investors?
Interesting idea, feel free to reach out to @ACommodore with more details.

I think that's pretty much it. I've covered a decent number of topics. Feel free to join @GainsANN on tg and https://twitter.com/GainsAssociates if you don't want to miss anything. If I've convinced you to buy some $GAINS, the next step to get into our groups is to talk to @gainsy_bot, our friendly concierge bot that will grant you access to our private groups depending on the number of tokens you hold. You can take a look at this ama_article that shows the step-by-step process: https://gainsassociates.medium.com/how-to-join-the-gains-private-groups-talk-to-gainsy-3fd784367b9f If you have other questions, don't hesitate to join @GainsChat and ask over there. We'll be happy to answer!
