Given the recent update that FintruX will get listed on an exchange this weekend, I thought it would be a great idea to update this project’s research paper.

Information About FintruX
FintruX is a revolutionary new lending platform that incorporates blockchain to provide a fast and safe way of obtaining an affordable unsecure loan. By creating a decentralized platform where lenders can be matched, utilizing existing technology, with borrowers in a transparent manner that guarantees security for both parties FintruX aims to disrupt the way in which loans are originated and administered.
Unsecured loans, a loan that is not protected by any asset, are typically an expensive way to borrow money, however many are left without a choice and must resort to paying these higher interest fees. FintruX utilizes blockchain and smart contracts to execute transactions without middlemen, therefore reducing the fees, which can result in lower interest.
FintruX also applies principles of credit enhancement to reduce the high interest of unsecured loans. Since unsecured loans are riskier for the lender, interest rates are often raised to reflect the additional risk factor. The riskier the loan, the more expensive the interest will be. The revolutionary credit enhancement process implemented by the network reduces the credit risk, and default risk of a debt, which in turn improves overall credit rating and lowering interest rates.
The FintruX Network will facilitate marketplace lending in a true peer-to-peer manner whilst addressing transparency, risk & rate reduction, and ease & speed of funding issues often associated with borrowing from banks, private lenders, or marketplace lenders.

How Does FintruX Work?
Those looking to borrow money may use the FintruX platform to search for the lender. The network helps simplify this process with its instant matching feature, which assists with browsing the network for a suitable lender and connects the two parties. Lenders deposit funds and select a credit decision package provided by rated agencies including fraud, identity, and credit scoring.
By applying credit enhancements, the credit risk of the loan can be greatly reduced for the borrower. This helps reassured the lender that the borrower will honor the obligation. In return, the low transaction fees enable the lender to gain a better ROI.
The network provides four levels of risk reduction to provide security for the loan:
1. Over-collateralization for additional security (10% of every loan); and in the event that the amount does not cover all losses then,
2. Third-party guarantors may handle overflow losses; and should this still not cover all losses then,
3. A cross-collateralization pool provides additional insurance; and should this also fail to cover all losses then,
4. A pool of 5% of all FTX Tokens has been reserved to cover any remaining losses.
All loans are written into smart contracts, which act as binding agreements. These contracts provide an immutable and transparent record of the agreement that requires no manual arbitration. Once created, smart contracts can not be manipulated, censored, or modified and anyway, and since they remain transparent at all times, both parties have fully access to all details and information involved in the agreement.
Each smart contract is customizable and the terms are generated and simplified using the Transitioning Robocoders Low-Code Development Platform, which removes all confusing legal jargon and statements such as “if…. then … etc”. This eliminates human error, and also creates shorter contracts that cost less Gas on the Ehthereum blockchain.
Each transaction contributes to a borrower’s credit score, which in turn improves their credit rating and further lower interest fees through the credit enhancement process. In return, borrowers may also rate their lenders to help build their reliability reputation.
All transactions in FintruX are tokenized and paid in FTX Tokens. FintruX also rewards users for certain actions performed on the network. Rewards are paid in FTX tokens and are issued for good behavior, providing information
performing mantainence tasks on the platform. Conversly charges are levied for being late and tokens are docked for bad behavior. This helps the network stay clean, healthy and self sufficient. All rewards are based
What problems does FintruX solve?
Obtaining an unsecure loan from the bank or credit union can be a lengthy process, which is why many often turn to peer-to-peer lending platforms that offer faster processing times. But whilst these platforms may approve loans in a shorter amount of time, they charge a much higher interest rate, sometimes astronomical. FintruX solves both of these problems by speeding up the process of sourcing the loan, and then using credit enhancement to reduce the risk factors involved and in turn lower the cost of interest.
FintruX also removes geographic limitations that apply to almost anyone seeking a loan. Even though the Internet has made the world a smaller place, currency is far from borderless. Using FintruX and the FTX token, borrows are able to take out loans from lenders anywhere in the world.
Blockchain technology boasts many other benefits to the platform such extremely low transaction fees, transparency, trustworthiness, faster transaction times and self-service processing for the borrower. As well as reduced risk, greater returns and access to the network agencies such as fraud, identity, credit score and credit decision services.
Furthermore, the trusted ratings and reviews on the blockchain provides both borrows and lenders honest feedback about a user. This helps all participants select the most suitable users to work with.
Technology Behind FintruX
The backend of the network consists of three databases, the Ethereum blockchain, MSSQL and Firebase.
FintruX leverage the transparency, security and shared nature of the Ethereum blockchain and its smart contracts. The decentralized platform offers trustless interaction between all parties and eliminates the need for expensive middlemen.
Many of the transactions carried out on FintruX will require private and confidential information to be assessed. This information is securely saved in an SQL database with multiple levels of security, external authentication and strong usage profiling. The SQL database also handles mission-critical structure data, especially that which requires updates. The NoSQL database handles dynamic unstructured data such as user profile management, big data, and interacts with the Internet of things.
The user interface is implemented using Angular 4, which provides a fast, smooth user experience computers and mobile devices.
FintruX will be available to fraud and identity service agents, credit scoring and decision agents, wallets, exchanges, banks, asset managers, insurance companies and technology companies to offer its services and encourage the development of new tools for use on the network. These partners may connect with users in the marketplace, and/or utilize the automated administration tools to develop financing portfolios.
FintruX will partner with rated agencies such as identity, KYC/AML, credit scoring, credit model, and payments in order to offer the widest variety of options to adjudicate loans.
All transactions are conducted in the FTX token. Fees will be charges for the following transactions and services on the network:
· Instant matching of borrowers and lenders
· Fee per-service
· Gas charge for deployment of smart contracts on the Ethereum network

The FintruX Roadmap
See the actual road map on FintruX official website.
The concept of the FintruX network, developed by Nelson Lin was thought up before the technology even existed to make it. However, the introduction of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and its automated smart contracts allowed for the integration of pre-existing risk-reduction mechanisms to create a trustless and transparent platform for borrowing and lending.
Lin’s previous experience is highly relative, which strategically positions his team has ideal developers for such a project. Lin has invented several other successful applications such as the Asynchronous Call, the first online credit adjudication in Canada, lending origintation systems in client/server and browser-based technologies and full ERP systems on low- code platform. He is also part of Open-Sourced Rintagi & ERP as global collaborative projects and delivered the Innovated Credit- Enhanced Unsecured Loan Product FintruX.
The FintruX website is already up and running, the prototype and open source mart contracts have developed, and the crowdsale has been successfully completed. Alpha Tests will begin in Q2, with the first customers following shortly after. Q3 will see more network development and a big marketing campaign before going to market come Q4.
