Legally, CHΛTEΛU uses a special investment fund in the British Virgin Islands to either execute forward swap agreements or other similar vehicles to purchase companies’ shares, and then issue corresponding GELT to enable on-chain trading. That way we bring Private Equity to DeFi, enabling global 24/7 access with lower entry cost, and made it possible for all DeFi investors to access in the most popular private secondary, or Pre-IPO deals like Klarna, SpaceX, or Scale AI.
A General Equity Linked Token (GELT) is a concept for minting a series of tokens for each type of Equity Product which may be offered as part of a companies’ capitalization.
Many types of equity agreements, inclusive of option rights to purchase equity, as well as warrants, and even types of fractional Fund Ownership, exist along side one another on semi-fungible terms. CHΛTEΛU implements GELTs as part of an ERC-1155 semi fungible token minted for each company.

When a company goes public and after the lock-up period ends, according to offering details, the fund sell shares on the public market and distribute returns among all GELT holders. You will receive a stable coin payment equal to the number of GELT multiplied by the new share price.
2. Sell your GELT on CHΛTEΛU to other traders.
The golden rule of investing is to have a well-diversified portfolio in order to minimize risks.

What is a public listing?
Public listing is a process when a private company decides to list its shares on a stock exchange like NYSE, NASDAQ, and others. The most popular way to do so is Initial Public Offering (IPO), however, some companies choose alternative options such as SPAC or Direct listing.
For venture investors, a public listing is one way to exit the investment. In the case of an IPO, companies put a lock-up period, after which investors can sell their stake and receive a return.When a company listed on CHΛTEΛU goes public, GELT holders will have to wait for the end of the lock-up period to receive a profit.
What is a lock-up period?
An initial public offering (IPO) lock-up period is a contract provision preventing insiders who already have shares from selling them for a certain amount of time after the IPO. Although the waiting period varies on a case-by-case basis, it typically ranges from 90 to 180 days.Lock-up periods generally apply to insiders, such as a company's founders, owners, managers, and employees. However, it also applies to venture capitalists and other early private investors.
CHΛTEΛU takes a flat 5% commission per instrument issuance, and 10 basis points (0.1%) per token trade.
