NaPoleonX ambitions to become the 1st algorithmic asset management company for crypto investors. The value proposal is underpinned by long standing performing trading bots running on a variety of highly liquid assets. NaPoleonX will benefit from a large range of existing trading systems developed by an experienced team in financial markets. NaPoleonX will drive DAFs development strategy, benefit from 85% of all gas (performance fees) generated by the various DAFs and allow for preferred access during the future DAFs' launch.


Napoleon Crypto will run a platform that will enable the design of algorithmic solutions on an open source scheme. It will act as an advisor to NaPoleonX by regularly proposing new algorithms to launch new DAFs. NaPoleonX will vote on the effectively launched DAFs. In exchange, Napoleon Crypto will benefit from 15% of all gas (performance fees).


DAFs, or Decentralized Autonomous Funds, have been introduced for the first time in NaPoleonX’s Whitepaper (Dec 2016). DAFs are conceived as smart contracts able to invest in financial markets through trading bots. A trading bot is basically an algorithm buying or selling a given underlying asset (ex: S&P500, ETH …) in order to generate an absolute performance.

A DAF will empower its owners to select (i) which trading bot(s) to use among a selection list provided by Napoleon Crypto and (ii) the appropriate leverage level. This initial “bot allocation” will be reviewed by its owners through a regular voting process.

The “bot allocation” will act as an oracle to give market orders to the DAF. DAFs may need to mirror their actions when operating on real underlying assets (ex: S&P500). Napoleon Crypto has developed a large set of performing trading bots and will offer them for the first DAFs to be created.

When will the ICO take place?

We will launch our ICO on the October 23rd 2017. It will end on November 17th 2017.

The smart contract address of the ICO will be at napoleonx.eth. The number of the block at which the crowdsale will begin will be specified later.

A pre-sale will be open from October 10th to October 17th to people having registered for the green list. The smart contract address of the pre-sale will be at greenlist.napoleonx.eth.

Which cryptocurrencies will be accepted?

The only cryptocurrency that will be accepted is Ether (ETH).

How will the tokens be distributed?

The Napoleon Token is a token on Ethereum platform. We are targeting to raise 40 000 ETH but will allow to raise more up to a hidden cap level. However, there will be a formal max cap at 100 000 ETH. In the case of a 40 000 ETH ICO, the associated tokens would be split as follows :
ICO participants : 70%
Social Bounty : 2%
Advisors / miscellaneous : 13%
Founders share : 15%
There will be no token creation, minting or mining after the ICO period. Tokens will be transferable once the ICO is successfully completed.

How will the tokens be sold?

The NaPoleonX ICO and the corresponding token creation process are organized around smart contracts running on Ethereum (at napoleonx.eth). Participants willing to support the development of our project can send ether to the designated address (napoleonx.eth). Then, if the minimum cap is reached, NaPoleonX Tokens (NPX) will be created at the end of the crowdsale at the rate of 100 NPX per 1 ETH.
Our ICO is implemented as a smart contract with few parameters: a minimum cap and a hidden cap.
If the minimum cap (25 000 ETH) is not reached after the ICO period, ICO participants can claim their Ether back from the contract.
If the hidden cap is reached, the crowdsale shall terminate by anticipation and the NPX tokens shall be created immediately.

How can I participate?

A pre-registration period has been launched where you can register to a green list your early commitment in exchange of a secure investment in the ICO with a bonus. This registration may end at any time after September the 23rd and at the latest on October 17th.

People who haven’t registered to the green list may only participate to the crowdsale from Oct. 23 rd . The precise number of the block at which the crowdsale will begin shall be disclosed before the beginning on the website, the slack and telegram channel.
