Farad | UPDATED Jun. 2018

Farad is a Malaysian company trying to usher in a new era of cryptocurrencies by linking their digital tokens to real-life economic production. Farad Cryptoken (FRD) will be backed by the production of ultra-capacitors manufactured in Farad’s factory in China.  

Every token purchased during the ICO will entitle you to a corresponding portion of the ultra-capacitor production. This is a unique approach to combining blockchain technology with real-life backing. The only problem we currently see with this idea is the fact that the ultra-capacitor production is supposed to be funded with the currency collected during the token crowdsale, which may discourage potential investors from participating.  

Ultra-capacitors are basically made of two porous non-reactive plates (collectors) suspended within an electrolyte with a certain voltage potential applied across the collectors. In individual ultra-capacitor cells, positive electrodes will attract the negative ions and the negative ones will attract positive ions from the applied potential. A dielectric separator located between the two electrodes will prevent the charge from moving between the electrodes. If this sounds interesting to you, keep reading our Farad review to find out more about this revolutionary project.

About The Project

The main idea behind Farad is a token with a value driven by real economic cash flow. The mining model is an assured model with mining based on farad produced on the Ethereum Smart Contract. The mining of the tokens will be over in 3 years at which point its fundamental will be 100% backed by cryptocurrencies.  

Premium over escrow is designed to mirror the value of FRD as currency for ultra-capacitor products and markets. Each ultra-capacitor produced will be recorded in the blockchain, which ensures a completely transparent process, fully accountable and auditable by anyone using the blockchain public records.   

Each FRD will represent a right to begin the production of ultra-capacitor cells (UCC) defined by the millifarads (mF) each UCC will produce. Each FRD is a representation of 1 mF. The planned production should result in 80,000,000 UCCs over 36 months, producing 1,600,000,000 mF.  

FRD is completely transparent. The program is housed under FARAD Co. Ltd. HK, which is a special purpose company. The enterprise will be overseen by an independent board of directors with two independent parties acting as the program’s auditor and compliance officer. 

Future plans see FRD as a currency used to purchase metal oxide based US and end products with metal oxide UC as their base components.

Additional Resources

Farad is a unique Malaysian company based around the idea of linking digital tokens and their value to real-life economic production. Their token is backed by the production of ultra-capacitors in their factory in China. So, every issued token will have its base value in manufactured ultra-capacitors. You can basically look at it like having gold to secure the value of fiat currency. Our list of additional resources will give you a better picture of the platform and answer any potential questions:

  • Farad YouTube review made by Applancer will provide a perfect introductory course to this revolutionary platform.

Bottom Line

As seen in our Farad review, FRD will definitely be a unique cryptocurrency that combines technological innovations achieved in blockchain and ultra-capacitor manufacturing. It also adds high-growth industries into the mix, including Internet/telecoms and energy storage. In our opinion, this is a unique opportunity (for now, at least) to take part in the digital economy, which is actually based on physical economy production. We recommend reading their Whitepaper and learning more about the idea since it definitely has the potential to change the cryptocurrency ecosystem as we know it.   


Pros

  • Transparency 
  • FRD value dictated by physical ultra-capacitor production 
  • Combination of several high-growth industries 
  • Automatic contract execution 
  • Irreversible transactions 
  • No intermediaries 

Cons
