We are committed to being totally transparent, upright and approachable.
-Bob Huber, President
We envision Anvóy truly being “of, for and by the people” (it’s members). Since Anvóy stands for Truth, Christianity and the US Constitution, it will be attacked. We ask that you take a moment to read this page and understand Anvóy, so that you can help us defend this critically important tool. “Let not then your good be evil spoken of.” – Romans 14:16
Anvóy’s goal is to promote Foundational Values via an engaging learning experience, and by developing God-honoring alternatives to the world’s corrupt systems. Although our products mimic the real world, they may still be in process of refinement. You can help us perfect them and make them real solutions by using them on an experimental basis. Your collaboration and cooperation allow us to create awesome products on a very limited budget.
For example, there are 4 types of Anvóy Asset accounts:
- Regular US dollar – a normal online account
- Anvóy dollar – used to buy or trade Foundational Value stocks
- Foundational Value stocks
- Adam currency – an experimental, God-honoring currency
Your US Dollar Account
This account mimics a regular online bank account (like PayPal). Funds you add to this account should be as secure as any real bank account, because matching amounts of dollars are kept in a real bank account. Use this account to move funds in and out of the Anvóy simulation and to pay or get paid from other Anvóy members.
Your Anvóy Dollar Account
This account holds simulated funds that are automatically invested in Foundational Values for you. Funds can only be moved between US dollars and Anvóy dollars at appropriate times. For example, funds added are limited by supply of Value Shares, so that the price does not go too high. Also, withdrawals are limited by demand for Values, so that share prices do not go too low.
Foundational Value Stock
Basically this is a simulated stock market, but instead of trading for profit stocks, we trade Foundational Values. We envision these Biblical Principles being worth more than gold, and becoming a new asset class in the real world. For more details about this, see Foundational Value Framework.
Lastly, this account holds our new God-honoring, member-backed medium of exchange. For more info about Adam, click here.
Anvóy Asset Accounts are for Education
Anvóy is a software platform that provides valuable, hands-on learning experiences that Students probably wouldn’t get otherwise. Participants have their own accounts with which they can buy and sell shares of Values, make purchases, etc. Nevertheless, everyone acknowledges that the account within the simulation are not real, at least not yet. All membership fees for this educational experience are an expense, gift or donation.
Trust and Accountability
Just because Anvóy is experimental doesn’t mean it is less accurate or honorable. Anvóy’s real-time, open book accounting provides more transparency than a real bank (in our opinion). You can see where the money goes by reviewing online reports that are updated daily. Knowing that funds are being well spent and producing good results allows all of us to participate with confidence. We intend to exceed expectations for trust and fairness in everything we do.
Anvóy Rewards Performance
To restore our nation to solid Foundational Values, we aim to motivate a large coalition of people and groups to work together. Anvóy uses a portion of funds received to reward Students, businesses and ministries that show goods results toward this goal. For example, you can sell shares of Values on Anvóy’s stock exchange and either donate the proceeds to charity or use them to purchase products from businesses. These transactions benefit everyone. Anvóy honors the member requests to redirect available funds in good faith, even though it is not legally obligated to do so.
Who Will Own Anvóy
Anvóy Inc. is the entity that is facilitating this project. We envision every state having a legal entity that serves the local Chapters in that state. All intellectual property and assets will eventually belong to these entities, which will be owned by the members of that state. In other words, Anvóy will eventually be entirely controlled by the states and the members of those states. A local Chapter needs 50 members to become official. State entities form at 60,000 members. The cost of all software and intellectual property for a state will not exceed 100 Adam per member.
Anvóy is Your World
We are working hard to serve you by providing educational tools that help you engage with youth and work together as a community. We believe that Anvóy has tremendous potential, but there are risks associated with any endeavor. Our mutual success ultimately depends on the performance of all of us and our willingness to trust each other.
For example, the stability of our experimental Adam currency depends on members following rules to honor its value, especially in times of low demand. We envision Adam becoming a solid and stable alternative medium of exchange that boosts our local economies, but this will take time and everyone’s cooperation.
Likewise, we believe that the stock market of Values may someday be a preferred way to “pass one’s values on” to the next generation. But we also need to understand that Anvóy has little control over the share price of the Values. They will always be worth what someone is willing to pay for them at the time they are offered for sale. Also, sellers share gains (if any) with the Mission Fund pool.
