Trade Halt Posted: 7 years ago

Trading has been halted for a while so Deprived and I can hammer out what he wants to see in a merge with TU.SILVER. Trading is expected to resume within 24 hours, and a news item will be posted giving a guaranteed buy-out price at that time. Don't panic!

BMF Letter to Shareholders -- September 2nd, 2013 Posted: 7 years ago

BMF August 2013 Shareholder Report.

First, thank you to the people who believed in me. You know who you are. Karma smiles on us all.

On the Month
1. First and most importantly. It's been a great month.
2. Last month we reported a book value of 0.03107. Today, our book value is 0.03141, for capital gains of 1.09% on the month.
3. We also paid distributions of 0.00049693, for additional income of 1.60%.
4. We achieved a further 1.27% in company profits which were used to buy back 49 shares at an average price of 0.037885006530612 BTC.
5. Adding the above we get 1.09% + 1.60% + 1.27% = 3.96%.
6. Our current BV is 0.03141.

What happened?
1. Early last month I sat down at the round table with my team and we came to one over-arching conclusion. Mining was dead.
3. BMF was going to tank in August. We were looking at a doomsday situation.
4. The table made the call. Dump mining. Buy face value.
5. It worked, face value went thru the roof as people fleed out of mining. But we were first.
6. Trade of note was ACTIVEMINING. In at 0.0025, in at 0.009, got out even at 0.005. Should have just saved the trading fees and bought BTC-BOND. Table isn't always right.
7. Trade of note was Ukyo.Loan. Table made the call to buy it out at 0.01, we got over 5,000 shares and sold some over 0.0105.
8. Mining is dead. Mining is not dead. What does it mean? I don't know. I'll cast the bones one more time.

Other Stuff
1. Health Update --> Man I'm tired. Maybe I'm just getting old (and cranky). It's taking longer to recover from my operation than I thought. I'm okay just don't feel like doing much. Next month will be better!

2. On a lark I started playing EVE online. My goal was simple. See if I can make money out of the game. My motivations are purely financial. That is all I will say on the matter for now. However, "things are looking well" and any profits will go to BMF. I will provide an update on that next month. It's quite interesting. The EVE in-game market is bigger than the Bitcoin market considering player time investment. I may provide a mid-month update on this.

BMF Letter to Shareholders -- August 1st, 2013 Posted: 7 years ago

BMF Letter to Shareholders
August 1st, 2013
1. July Results and Guidance for August 2013
Our market cap as of today is 146.23 BTC. Our records indicate an expected monthly income of 7.62 BTC based on current holdings. This represents a return on investment of 5.2%.

As a result, we are increasing dividends by 6.7% this month, to 0.00048/share over 30 days. These payments have been scheduled in advance. The total is 1.15 BTC, which will leave us approximately 6.47 BTC to reinvest.

Our book value is currently 0.3107. We have experienced a decline recently due to negative performance in ActiveMining; over the course of a week it has gone from 0.0025 to 0.0095, to 0.0038 and back up. Our investment in ACTIVEMINER is currently 9.16% of the fund, so it may continue to have a significant impact on our book value going forward.

The management fees of 5% (0.381 BTC) have been donated back to the company in order to strengthen the share price. Management doesn't feel that it is appropriate to take management fees until our book value is above our IPO price of 0.036.


3. Investment Targets
We believe that there are no legitimate investments with a predictable ROI greater than the 5.2% which we currently enjoy.

There is also the complication of our deprecating and wildly volatile mining assets. TAT.VIRTUALMINE and DMS.MINING have fallen by over 60% since our IPO on June 13th, and our recent investment into ACTIVEMINING has been shown to be a short-term mistake. This has had a significant negative impact on our share price (we have fallen from 0.036 on June 13th, 2013 to 0.031 today).

Due to these issues we will continue to reinvest in face-value assets (preferably mining-related, such as FIMB) during August. Most importantly, we will pursue a share repurchase program.


4. Share Repurchase Program
Today BMF faces several challenges on the road to success. Management speculates these challenges have led investors to undervalue BMF by a significant margin. In order to turn this situation to our advantage, Management has decided to repurchase a limited number of company shares in August. It goes without saying that as a result, no new shares will be sold into the market for the duration of August.

To implement this buyback program we have placed bids at (and slightly above) our NAV in order to defend the share price and show our committment to investors. I had originally intended to offer a repurchase at up to 20% of NAV, but after some investors showed concern on our discussion thread I will limit bids to 5% above NAV for now. Based on an expected income of 6.5 BTC per month, we will attempt to repurchase between 100 and 200 shares in this way. We feel this will have several positive effects:

  • Shareholders will be protected from panic-selling;
    -- if someone panics and sells, they will get a fair price
    -- if someone needs to sell for other reasons, they will not be forced to sell at a loss
  • LTC-GLOBAL moderators will have more evidence we are "trustworthy".
    -- We're not sure why so many of them voted "no" or are abstaining, but actions like this should help them realize they should have voted YES a lot sooner.
  • Other investors will take this as a sign of strength.
    --- investors may be willing to pay more for BMF if they think it's a stronger company.
  • We expect to gain value on a per-share basis by reducing the number of outstanding shares while keeping the market cap of the fund stable at 150 BTC.


5. Response to LTC-GLOBAL moderators' NO and ABSTAIN votes.
Two of the LTC-GLOBAL moderators who had voted YES to get us listed have changed their votes to ABSTAIN without any explanation. There are now five ABSTAIN votes for BMF, and three NO votes.

We remind the LTC-GLOBAL moderators that it is no longer their job to approve or disapprove of our listing on BTC-TC. It is their job to offer guidance on how well are keeping the Asset Issuer Terms of Service, in particular how well we live up to our a fiduciary responsibility to the shareholders. In that respect, negative votes which do not offer constructive criticism are not just useless, they're negligent. If you are a LTC-GLOBAL moderator, please recognize your responsibility and take the time to do your job properly. BMF places a huge value on comments from our shareholders and from LTC-GLOBAL moderators, and it's very frustrating to see the people who are our gatekeepers act this way. You've voted YES to this company and this contract -- if there's some deficiency it is your responsibility to point it out so that we may fix the problem.


6. Upcoming Interviews & Analysis
BadBitcoin (James Sutton) has not returned his interview yet. We have therefore scheduled interviews with three other companies which we hope to complete this month.
During the time where we are not preparing interviews, we will take the time to perform detailed analysis of various companies on BitFunder BTC-TC, and we will post these to our disclosure page (


7. Usagi's health problems
For those of you who did not know, I was admitted to the hospital for surgery on July 13th and was discharged on the 18th.

This is related to my prior hospitalization in October 2012 for several weeks after GLBSE closed -- it's my kidney stones. I feel weak and a bit loopy due to the medication. I will continue the medication until approximately August 6th. I apologize for not being my usual self and for taking a bit longer to get things done. I don't believe the fund has suffered as a result of this problem, but for the record I don't anticipate any further problems of this nature. To health and long life!


8. Request for Comments
Are you a shareholder? Do you like how we've been doing so far? Do you have a suggestion?

Tell us!

Our shareholders are very important to us. Please e-mail comments and questions to usagi at Yes, your voice counts. We respond to all shareholder inquiries and often take serious steps to change things based on shareholder requests. For example, just recently we completely re-did our Holdings & NAV spreadsheet to use a script that automatically pulls values and balances from BTC-TC. This was done because of a chat we had on IRC with one of our shareholders.

Good communication is important. One thing a BMF invetsor will never tell you is that it was difficult to contact management with an issue or to resolve a complaint. So if you have any problems with BMF please let us know so we can take steps to solve your problem, We are here to serve you!

Happy investing!

Progress report Posted: 7 years ago

BMF Status Report
July 19th, 2013

1. Income Streams & Daily Distribution Payments
Our top 5 income streams are:
DMS.MINING    1.7968
DMS.PURCHASE    0.4423
PAJKA.BOND    0.4416
B.YABMC        0.4089
ASICMINER-PT    0.2145
...for a total of 3.6109 per month (based on the 30-day historical figures). Our distribution payments are 0.000015 per unit per day, for a total of 1.0701 per month. This is well within our ability to pay given our current income.

2. Daily Distribution Increase for August 2013
After a careful review of our income streams (above) we feel comfortable increasing the distribution from 0.000015 to 0.000016/unit and will schedule those payments for the month August. This marks the second month in a row in which the company has been able to increase distributions. Management remains confident in the company's ability to pay distributions at this level while expanding the company.

3. Investment Targets for August
We would like to have more ASICMINER in a general sense, and are also looking stronly at BASIC-MINING, COGNITIVE and DMS.PURCHASE. Depending on sales we may also resume our hardware purchase program. Please contact us if you are a mining company looking for investment and would like to make a deal!

4. Change to Bid Policy
It seems that there are currently more buyers than sellers so we have pulled some of our bids. The capital has been invested into ASICMINER-PT, BASIC-MINING, COGNITIVE, and similar mining assets in order to strengthen our income. Please contact us if you wish to sell a large number of shares and we will ensure you get a fair price.

5. Minor changes to currency hedging policy
We have sold around 1,000 LTC-ATF.B1 units to slightly deleverage from holding LTC. We have moved the profits from the sale into LTC-ATF.B2. We are moving towards holding our currency as investments in the fixed-face-value bond market, especially with the introduction of FIMB, which we really like. We would like to see more FIMB-style issues from established mining companies.

6. Interview with BadBitcoin (James Sutton)
We are working hard to bring you an absolutely amazing exclusive interview with Smart Property Trust manager BadBitcoin (James Sutton) next week in which we discuss the first fully regulation compliant bitcoin REIT. See you then!

Please e-mail comments and questions to usagi at

Relaunched -- Thank You Posted: 7 years ago

A big thanks to the LTC-GLOBAL moderators and all of my committed shareholders. We now have 5 votes!

Please visit the BMF blog where I will be keeping a record of all news items posted to BTC-TC. It is my goal to publish a really nice interview soon, and maybe some other cool things like that, so keep your eyes open!

For me this is a time of personal celebration as well (my birthday is in late June). This is a great present and I look forward to working with you to make this a better place. Please send me an e-mail at with any comments or questions and we can talk about it. Chat soon~

TRADING RESUMED ON BMF Posted: 7 years ago

Motion posted on BMF: Motion for New Contract Posted: 7 years ago
A new motion has been posted on BMF at: You should probably check it out. Don't waste your vote!

Five votes - thank you Posted: 8 years ago
Dear LTC-GLOBAL moderators and shareholders;

I'm truly touched by your allowing me to list BMF, and the shareholder motion
which states my shareholders want me to continue running BMF. However I fear it
is too late for BMF. I will be honest my dreams for BMF have been dashed. For
weeks I have been mentally prepared to just let go (and shut down the company).
So thank you for the five votes, I have asked burnside to unlock the asset, but
I will continue to shut down in an orderly fashion over the next few weeks.

The only real benefit unlocking will have is it will allow me to buy back shares
in addition to paying a dividend. Some people may prefer to sell their shares at
a small loss to get their money back "today" versus two weeks from now. However
please keep in mind most of the dividends have already been paid and short of
several letters from shareholders asking me to continue I will shut down.

Management guidance: As at Jan 22nd, 2013, I will guarantee a minimum value for
BMF shares at 0.1. However this value is guaranteed to decline as we continue to
pay out dividends. I also suggest you don't panic sell. Please check the
Dividends & Trades window to see what we have scheduled for payout, and keep in
mind there is at least 100 BTC of unscheduled dividends which we will get from
auction and from sale of securities over the next week or two. Once again thank
you to all my shareholders. Please contact me if you have any concerns and I
will do my best to resolve them.

BMF: Motion YES: 2830 - NO: 5188 - ABSTAIN: 2 - OUTSTANDING: 14679 (2830/14677 = 19.3% Approval)
Title Move to BitFunder
Voting Dates Begins: 2013-09-25 04:40:55 (GMT)    Ends: 2013-09-29 16:00:00 (GMT)

Dear Investors;

There is a way for us to move to BitFunder. We can merge with TU.SILVER. Our current "Contract" section reads as follows:

1. BMF will pay as distribution or reinvest 100% of the net income generated by trading and investment activity of the fund.
1b. The fund will place timely bids at 95% of the NAV. Holding bitcoins does not earn bitcoins, and the spread will go towards the fund. New shares of the fund will be priced at or slightly above NAV.
2. Payments are due on or before the 7th of every month for the previous month’s trading and investment activity.
3. The issuer reserves the right purchase back the security at 1.1 times the highest price the asset was traded over the previous month.
4. The fund is mandated to perform due diligence when investing.

I now motion to change the wording of the above to the following:

1. BMF becomes exchangable with TU.SILVER on a 1:1 basis. That is, you get 1 share of TU.SILVER for every share of BMF you want to exchange. In addition, you will get one purchase warrant for TU.SILVER at 0.05 BTC/unit.
2. Any shares not transferred before the shutdown of BTC-TC will be considered null and void under contract section "Fund Closure" item III.

What does this Contract change mean? It means TU.SILVER will get all our assets, and you get to trade your shares of BMF as shares of TU.SILVER on BitFunder. It also means that the value of your shares will go up because some people haven't accessed their account in over a year, and I'm not going to pour money into a black hole. The price of BMF is a little less than the price of TU.SILVER right now, so you are getting a good deal here. I suggest you take it. Please see for more information.

Management suggests you vote YES.

If you vote NO, the old contract will remain in effect and we will continue investing elsewhere.

NOTE: Should BTC-TC shut down before this motion is recorded, we will use the vote count at time of closure.

BMF: Motion YES: 1197 - NO: 0 - ABSTAIN: 0 - OUTSTANDING: 1568 (1197/1568 = 76.3% Approval)
Title Motion for New Contract
Voting Dates Begins: 2013-06-11 05:48:15 (GMT)    Ends: 2013-06-29 16:00:00 (GMT)

This vote will run for the month of June.

In order to do things right, we should vote on our new contract. Please be aware that a YES vote also implies you wish BMF to relist, and a NO vote implies you don't want it to relist. This vote may or may not affect LTC-GLOBAL moderator sentiment. Please carefully review our new contract on the DETAILS page. You may change your vote at any time prior to closing.

I've also decided to permanently donate the current holdings of the usagiBMF accounts to BMF regard. This means that the outcome of your vote will not affect how much money you will recieve. After the 100BTC in assets I've donated to relaunch the fund, the current NAV/U of BMF stands at approximatelty 0.05. There have been 0.0873 already paid to investors.

Of course I would love to relaunch the fund, and I hope you can see I am trying to do the right thing here.

Management suggests that you vote YES.

BMF: Motion YES: 23 - NO: 118 - ABSTAIN: 3 - OUTSTANDING: 1513 (23/1510 = 1.5% Approval)
Title Should BMF liquidate all assets and pay a final dividend?
Voting Dates Begins: 2012-12-23 00:00:00 (GMT)    Ends: 2013-01-27 00:00:00 (GMT)
Dear investor of BMF. Due to the unforseen events surrounding the closure of
GLBSE, we have relisted on However, it may now be in your best
interests if we liquidate all assets and pay out a final dividend. Voting will
continue on until January 27th, 2013.

If investors want the company to continue, we will discuss a new contract on the
forums and approve it via shareholder motion here on Good luck!

Please vote YES to liquidate all assets of the company and pay a final dividend.
Please vote NO to continue operations.

Issuer Detail

Was fully ID verified on GLBSE.
OTC rating is very good (+42):


BMF allows investors to safely diversify among a wide-range of mining companies in the bitcoin community.

1. BMF will pay as distribution or reinvest 100% of the net income generated by trading and investment activity of the fund.
1b. The fund will place timely bids at 95% of the NAV. Holding bitcoins does not earn bitcoins, and the spread will go towards the fund. New shares of the fund will be priced at or slightly above NAV.
2. Payments are due on or before the 7th of every month for the previous month’s trading and investment activity.
3. The issuer reserves the right purchase back the security at 1.1 times the highest price the asset was traded over the previous month.
4. The fund is mandated to perform due diligence when investing.

Transparency: The fund seeks maximum transparency by fully disclosing all assets held in the fund at any time:
5. We publish our spreadsheets. You must request access, and you may not publish or distribute the information to any other party.
6. An independent financial advisor will be hired to provide oversight and ensure that things are running smoothly.
7. A support e-mail address will be operated by the manager, to provide disclosure and give investors the tools they need to make their own decisions should anything be required.
8. Monthly reports will be published to the forums (and/or reddit or any other widely read news source).

The fund will pass through dividends received by the fund using a combined growth and income policy:
9. The fund will use approximately half it’s income to buy more assets (growth via capital gains) and the rest to make payments (income via distributions).
10. Distributions must be paid within a reasonable time frame after receipt; within 7 days of the end of the month for that month’s activity.

Net Asset Value:
11. The Net Asset Value (NAV) is the value of all assets in the fund plus the cash on hand.
12. The Net Asset Value per unit is the value divided by number of units outstanding. This is also known as NAV/U.
13. The Net Asset Value will be calculated based on our internal fundamental analysis process and due diligence and verified by the financial oversight advisor and/or Certified Accountant(s) hired to oversee the financial operation of the fund.

Given that underlying assets held by the fund may periodically raise motions to vote,
14. This fund will vote on motions on underlying assets favoring the best interest of the fund.
15. Any shareholder of 5% or greater may request a motion for proxy voting the fund’s shares of an underlying asset.
16. Any shareholder of 5% or greater may request a motion to be run at any time (limit: 3 per month, one re-run within 100 days).
17. Shareholders wield supreme executive power (i.e. shareholders may vote to replace management).
18. Motions require quorum of 60% or greater and majority vote of 60% or greater to pass.

Although research has been put into each underlying asset, Mining assets in the past have been unpredictable. The fund’s value relies on the the value of the underlying assets. If the underlying asset value decreases, the entire fund’s value will also decrease. Additional risks to Mining assets include the price of Bitcoin, the price of mining equipment, the difficulty mining Bitcoins the Bitcoin reward per block, mining equipment upgrades, as well as many other risks. This fund does not hedge against any of these risks. Each shareholder must understand these risks before investing. Additionally, there may be undisclosed risks which the operator is or is not aware of. The operator will not be liable for any damages to the investor beyond the the value of the investor’s position in the fund at the time of the complaint, as determined by market price discovery.

Fund Closure:
I. Closure clause. Management reserves the right to close this fund for any reason giving 30 days notice. All assets in the fund including unpaid dividends will be liquidated at fair value and paid to shareholders.
II. Buyback clause. Management reserves the right to force-buyback all units of the fund at 110% of the highest traded price over the last 100 days.
III. Exchange limited liability (the “GLBSE clause”). Management will not be responsible for damage caused to shareholders outside of management’s control, i.e. by actions of the exchange.

Executive Summary

BMF was not the first fund or even the first mining fund -- I believe that honor goes to M.ETF. However, we were the largest and most popular mining fund on the GLBSE, and we are now the oldest surviving bitcoin investment fund. While we never achieved the sales of the biggest bonds (like GIGAMINING, YABMC, COGNITIVE or TYGRR), we were able to beat their performance with careful trading and reinvesting.

My goal for BMF these days is much the same as it was before; to help people invest wisely. I don't want to just reinvest on people's behalf; I want to provide news, information and analysis on the underlying assets as well. I like to think that we are giving something back to the community this way.

These days the community is much larger and the shock of the GLBSE closure is still lingering in many people's minds. A lot of people got ripped off during that time. One of the things I am proud to say is that I stuck through it and made sure that the people who chose to invest in BMF did better than the people who invested on their own. It's a challenge to be sure but one I feel satisfied with how I have met it so far. Now I approach the future and I have hope. Thank you.

Business Description


This is an outline illustrating our goals and how we plan to reach those goals. This will give you a loose benchmark to gauge the success of BMF.

1. BMF's goal is to provide a safe way to invest in mining as a sector, without being exposed to the risk of investing in an individual bond or company. One way we will achieve this is by investing in a wide range of mining investments, carefully selected by a process of due dilligence. This does not mean you can't lose money; as the difficulty increases, mining bonds tend to lose value. Our goal is to ensure you lose less money with BMF than with the average mining bond. In a flat to mildly down market, BMF should do exceedingly well at preserving your capital and providing a modest, realistic return of between 5 to 10% per year.

Update: We will revisit this goal every three or four months and provide an update on how we have been performing. Currently, we are strongly outperforming several of the mining issues in the mining sector by maintaining a steady NAV and stable dividends. Ex. in the last three weeks, since about July 15th, COGNITIVE has lost 48%, BASIC-MINING has lost 45%, TAT.VIRTUALMINE has lost 35%, and DMS.MINING -- even despite a rally last week -- is still down over 30%. BMF is happy to report a stable NAV and steady dividend payments during this period

2. BMF's goal is to build a reputation for trust in the community by providing regular, detailed analysis and reports not just of internal company operations but of the securities we invest in. One way we will achieve this is by hiring a financial advisor or chartered accountant and publishing quarterly audited financial reports. We hope to lead the way in this area but we look forward to the day when everybody does it. Transparency is important because investors must be allowed the ability to make their own decision on whether or not to invest. No one should force you to invest and you shouldn't just invest in anything. We want our investors to know what they are doing, that is important to us.

3. BMF's purpose is to allow investors to expose themselves to the rewards and risks of investing in Bitcoin Mining as a sector. Unfortunately mining is an incredibly risky thing to invest in because the value of BTC and the mining difficulty changes all the time. To help provide stability we will often invest in fixed face-value bonds depending on the trustworthiness of the issuer. We feel this is a great compromise compared with trying to hold BTC to hedge against currency risks. Please remember that any shareholder can raise a motion on whether or not to invest in any securty. If you think we shouldn't be invested in something, let us know!

4. BMF's goal is to provide services and information to investors which will allow them to make an objective assessment of BMF and the mining and other securities we invest in. One way we will achieve this is to publish interviews and reports concerning the companies we invest in. Please visit our webpage at to see two interviews we conducted in 2012. We'd like to pick up the ball and start running where we left off, and are in the process of writing analysis and articles for our website.

Definition of the Market

Mining. It's the root of the bitcoin economy. Hardware is denominated in US Dollars. Our view is that this is the way the fund should be managed, and that our investors understand and appreciate that the central asset of any mining company is it's hardware. This implies certain risks. For example, should bitcoins double in value, the fund is expected to lose 50%. This can, and has, happened in the past to both BMF and other mining bonds, funds and companies.

We believe our investors understand and appreciate these risks, and are willing to take them. And they understand that reinvestment is key to survival in the mining sector. Without reinvestment you may only make 50% of your money back. But with continued and appropriate reinvestment we feel the magic of dollar cost averaging will work for us in the long run. To keep it simple, if the price of a mining asset falls by 50% we can now buy twice as much hardware for the same price. So we invest more as the price goes down and are happy to get more bang for our buck.

Our target market is the sophisticated Bitcoin investor who understands these factors as well as standard concepts of portfolio management and investing theory such as asset allocation, growth vs. income strategies, cyclical investing strategies including Elliot wave theory, counterparty risk, warrants, options, share buybacks, shorting, futures, diversification, and so on. Trust remains a key issue in our community and having your money in many hands allows you to thin the risk of default of any one issuer.

We are currently a small fund but we feel that by following this mandate we can grow and once again become a flagship investment fund within the community.

Products and Services

Why BMF? Simple. It has a low PITA factor. PITA:


Can you afford to sit on the bid for 10 different assets? Do you really want to spend all day looking at stocks, trying to catch the next deal, or getting in on a bulk-share IPO offer? Is Trading in your blood? Do you stay up all night trading stocks by hand?

If so, then BMF is not for you. But if you would like an experienced portfolio manager to help you in the wild west of bitcoin investing, we are here to serve you. BMF is a way for you to efficiently pay someone else to do the grunt work for you. Not everyone has 3 or 4 hours to watch the charts every day. We can do that for you. And when the going gets tough we can pull out our big guns and really bite down hard on a good investment. We return the value to you. That's why we're here.

Organization and Management

BMF is run entirely by me (usagi), but I have also hired an oversight advisor to keep a second set of eyes on the company funds and make sure that everything checks out. It's not just about trust but about keeping mistakes out of the books. It's easy to make a mistake here and there when you're dealing with numbers all day.

Regarding the management of the fund, I again note that any shareholder of size (anyone who holds at least 5% of the company) can raise contractually binding motions at any time, and that company shares never vote in these motions. The management of the fund is ultimately in the hands of the shareholders, should they so choose to exercise that right.

About usagi:

I've been around in the community for a very long time and a lot of people trust me. Please see my OTC rating (+44) and you will see for yourself.

I am here to answer any questions, comments or concerns you have about BMF, even if you are not a shareholder. Please e-mail me at and we can talk.

Marketing Strategy

Our marketing strategy is word of mouth and in the publishing of our monthly reports.

We have plans to launch banner ads on community sites like and other once we start making more money.

Financial Management

We keep detailed company records and spreadsheets which help us calculate all of the financial statistics for the fund. These spreadsheets are highly advanced and use Namworld's portfolio tools to pull data directly from the exchange for the purpose of calculating NAV, for example.

We have hired a financial oversight advisor to make sure no mistakes creep into the book and in general to keep an eye on things and reassure investors that everything is in ship-shape order.
