What is Charism? How does it gain life and what does it solve?
“That’s a foundational Q, thanks!
So Charism is the powerhouse behind the entirety of Choise.com’s new functionality. But let’s take a step back.
Why we believe in Choise.com and #Charism, the protocol underpinning it? We’ve identified a whole bunch of exciting opportunities for retail users and institutions alike to earn higher, above-them-market yields in the world of DeFi.
DeFi delivers a superior yield and truly democratizes access to finance, but it comes at a cost – all of those instruments require a ton of expertise, more-than-average knowledge of protocols, cryptography, layer-1 and 2 fundamentals, and counting.
In simple words, it’s inaccessible to most of the users out there. It’s inaccessible and yet it generates attractive returns with their LP tokens, yield farming, staking and other instruments. This contradiction gotta be overcome.
Charism solves just for that. It is a core building block of the Choise.com MetaFi ecosystem and a unique DeFi platform that enables users to exchange tokens at attractive prices, efficiently transfer assets between different networks, analyze investments, yield and risks, enter the chosen products and make forecasts – all that through a super friendly User experience.
Choise.com is the world’s first MetaFi ecosystem that combines all the advantages of CeFi and DeFi (centralized and decentralized finance) services into a single ecosystem.
Find the best yield opportunities across all EVM networks. Invest in any of them with one click, no matter which assets you hold.”
Is this service available for the Choise.com customers? What is the Charism Beta Test?
“I am glad to see folks yearning to give it a spin.
So Charism is currently undergoing the most critical step before its public deployment, its limited release beta test.
It’s important everyone in our community understands why this test is so critical and why it’s limited in scale. It’s important to conduct that test to ensure all the bugs, errors, bad code, etc are tested under the real usage conditions. Someone has to do that beforehand so you don’t have to do it when and how it matters the most – while you’re using it, with your assets. We’ve hand-picked a couple of hundreds of courageous testers for this test because we want to make sure that tests are representative of future usage patterns and scenarios.
Those tests are being conducted now, and our team is eagerly awaiting results.
Charism will become available for mass testing following the completion of this current phase. So stay tuned, you’ll be the first one to learn about it.”
How can I participate in testing? What are the prizes?
“The best way to get engaged with this beta test is to head down to https://choise.com/charism/beta and leave your email there.
If selected, you will be then given a set of credentials to access the test.
Follow the guidelines, explore the system, give it a good spin, complete the tasks and get a chance to win one of 100 exclusive CHO NFTs
To repeat: all you need is to go to https://choise.com/charism/beta and explore your testing superpowers.”
Any KYC needed? Is it too late to test it?
“Both are super relevant Qs.
Time-wise: you’ve still got enough time. The beta test is open until July 27. You won’t need to undergo any KYC, so rest assured, it’s the DeFi you know and love.
You will need to connect a #metamask or another applicable wallet to take our system for a test ride. Here are available wallets
We made it easy for you to get started while not leaving the comfort of your usual wallet.
It’s crypto, right? So don’t forget about DYOR – do your own research, so check out a useful guide prepared by my colleagues https://choisecom.medium.com/charism-beta-test-testers-guide-d06d8ce5d867
And here’s an even funnier way to consume your learning about protocol”:

Earn video tutorial: https://youtu.be/8Ai30AQgVkU
Swap video tutorial: https://youtu.be/qfKwPRf9nsI
What bridges will be available?
And what’s even better, is the Answer. Which surprised me – in a good way.
We’ll kick off with a healthy total of 10 bridges.
Well, the nerds out there will correct me – so I will get ahead of them and do it myself.
Here are the available chains which we are gonna be bridging.
Now remember, bridging transactions doesn’t solely enable txs from one appear in the other, it lends itself to conducting those transactions in the most efficient way possible. So using them leads to everyone having a better deal. win = win”
Is Charism Beta Test a part of the Ambassador program? Has the Ambassador program started already?
“ Great way to frame a Q.
I know that a lot of testing programs are built as ambassador ones as well. And it makes sense for some projects, I guess.
We built those 2 programs in parallel – which doesn’t prevent you from being in 2. And matter of fact, we’d love you to!
Bear in mind, though, that our beta testforce is already active, while the ambassador program is being set up as we speak. We welcome applications from all those interested – https://forms.gle/mPeZmDwGq3x5Cx5M7
We are looking forward to your participation. And we would think of creating some special perks for those of you who will distinguish themselves in both testing and ambassador programs. All the more reasons to kill two birds with one stone.
What other services will be launched soon?
“Let’s take a moment to appreciate what has just been launched and is now available for all of you, guys.
#1 – it’s our industry’s only 15% APY yield product on stablecoins. Available first to our institutional customers, and now we empower you to beat the market and earn more. Head to your choise.com app and pick ‘Earn’ tab. https://choise.com/wallet
In the middle of the current market uncertainties and with competitors crumbling, we are the only organization in the world that lets you earn professional-grade yield in a safe and reliable manner.
safe and reliable – 2 words you won’t always hear in one sentence with yield
#2 – We are now testing our next big thing – Crypto Price Insurance Product – the only solution on the market that puts U in the Upside.
We are now closed-loop testing it for BTC and ETH.
Along with a full-scale deployment of Charism , those are the main focuses of our work.
So stay tuned and give us your support – and healthy dose of testing-based criticism – to improve our products.”
I wonder why the beta test was not with test tokens? Maybe that made most people not test it? Thanks.
In all the products we deliver, we strive for the relevance of the results.
Tests with real assets are by definition real life tests. The protocol and the system are ripe enough to handle real assets, so we encourage you to give it a try.
We do believe modest sums, such as $10-20 worth of your crypto will be enough to get you started with most of the products.
So pay attention to risks and play, but for real.”
Crypterium (CRPT), Choice (CHO) and Charism. Don’t you think these terminologies can be confusing and difficult to distinguish?
“Thanks for the Q.
Let’s confirm a couple of points.
CHO token is becoming the backbone of the new ecosystem together with our first token — CRPT. CRPT was, is and will remain the main token of the centralized part, representing a utilitarian function of crypto-fiat gas. CHO will be the main decentralized token representing the power of the vote in the DAO.
Charism as a protocol is a core building block of the Choise.com DeFi infrastructure and a unique financial permission-less development platform enabling users to easily buy, store and exchange crypto, get crypto loans, yield farm and so much more — and all that through a super friendly User Experience.
So Choise.com is the name you should be focused on, Charism is building blocks it’s made of, while CRPT is good old product we’ve all been using for a while.”
Africans especially Nigerians (the giants of Africans and crypto loving nations) could not use crypterium services before. Now that you introduced Choice, what are your plans towards Africans? Do we have hope? Thanks for your honest reply.
“Great Q, really appreciate that.
The short answer is an unequivocal and decisive YES!
Choise.com in its DeFi functionality will be fully available to Nigerians and the rest of the global user base, while our new crypto banking product will be available to citizens of over 180 countries.”
