There are company administrators in place and local legal or reclamatory procedures would apply.
The projects listed on Max Crowdfund are “hands off” investments, meaning that investors do not control the projects. This is mainly for practical reasons, since there are multiple investors involved in one project. However, the project’s progress and important activities are recorded on the platform, to ensure information remains open to investors.
Definitely. The crowdfunding platform, which is placed on the MPG blockchain, has been created to ensure that investors can track every activity pertaining to any given product.

Blockchain, or Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), is a fast-growing sector within the finance industry which is increasingly being extended into other applications. DLT is frequently misunderstood and often mistakenly associated with cryptocurrency and/or bitcoin. A DLT system produces a set of records that are validated and executed via a multi-party consensus process performed by multiple separate entities. The goal of a DLT system is to maintain individual instances of a structured record which leads to an accepted set of authoritative records (in the form of a digital ledger) and enables a group of separate parties to reach agreement over a shared data set without a central authority, or mutual trust.

No. Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) and cryptocurrency may share an origin but are not necessarily connected. A DLT system can apply to almost anything, financial or otherwise. In the case of Max Crowdfund, DLT is utilized to record property transactions for the purposes of transparency and user security.
