Frequently Asked Questions
How do we determine asset value?
Arkefi leverages its profound expertise and extensive knowledge to meticulously analyse millions of data points, encompassing risk assessment, value appreciation, and sell-through rates. This rigorous analysis provides us with comprehensive insights, enabling us to make well-informed decisions and deliver the best possible outcomes to investors.
Which types of assets can you purchase?
Arkefi offers a diverse range of high-quality assets for purchase. Before these assets become available on our platform, our team collaborates with third-party experts to conduct a rigorous due diligence. This process verifies the authenticity, quality, and condition of the assets, guaranteeing that only those meeting our stringent standards are offered for sale.
Where are assets stored?
Arkefi securely stores assets in bonded warehouses situated in Switzerland. These facilities provide an ideal environment for the long-term preservation of valuable assets and adhere to stringent security measures.
Why are there no images of the assets?
To maximize returns for investors, we refrain from displaying images of assets. This approach helps maintain their market freshness, preventing potential decreases in value. However, in some cases, we may arrange viewings for co-owners with the custodian’s consent, which may involve additional fees for logistics and security arrangements.
How can you invest using conventional currencies?
While we accept most wallets, we recommend using exchanges such as Kraken for fiat and cryptocurrency on/off boarding. Utilizing such exchanges eliminates credit card fees and can result in a higher return on investment.
What is the timeframe for the funding process, and what happens if the full investment amount is not reached?
The funding process has a one-month time limit, starting from the moment the investment opportunity is listed on our platform. If the required amount is not reached within this timeframe, all funds will be automatically returned to the investors.
What happens if a buy-back is not executed?
If a buy-back is not executed, ownership of the asset remains with the investors. Arkefi will proceed to sell the asset on the secondary market to secure the highest possible price, with a 10% commission applied upon a successful sale.
