ICO Analysis: BeeToken

Published

on

“Sharing economy” has been the buzz word among VCs over the past few years. The sharing economy is a model where consumers engage in a peer to peer exchange of goods and services via an online intermediary. Services offered via sharing economy are usually cheaper than those being provided by a product-centric organization. Uber and Airbnb are the prime success stories of this model, each valued at $60 billion and $30 billion, respectively.

As good as they may seem on paper, currently available sharing economy models are ripe for disruption. In exchange for simply connecting the users, platforms like Airbnb extract high commission fees from them. While Airbnb is now valued at $30 billion, none of this value has gone back to the guests or the hosts, who have powered this growth.

At the core of Bee’s value proposition is the Beenest platform, which is a short-term housing rental solution, directly competing with Airbnb. Beenest offers several advantages over centralized platforms like Airbnb and HomeAway, including:

  • Low transaction fees: While the total fees on traditional platforms like Airbnb range from 10-22%, Beenest can offer the same services with a 0% commission and total transaction charge (including insurance) of around 2%.
  • Aligned incentives: While there is no way for users of an unlisted company like Airbnb to participate in its growth, users of Beenest will benefit when the token price appreciates as the user base grows.
  • Decentralization: Airbnb has often been accused of removing negative reviews, siding with the hosts or deleting data at will. Beenest’s blockchain based data ensures immutability and prevents modification of any review. Beenest’s rating algorithm called the reputation system, rates the users in a transparent and decentralized manner.
    Even the conflict resolution is decentralized, as third party arbiters (who have to stake tokens) are selected in case of conflicts.

Beenest is a decentralized application created on top of Bee protocols. The protocols provide payment, arbitration and reputation functionalities and can be used to create sharing economy based decentralized applications like Beenest. Airbnb/Homeaway or maybe a ride-sharing application can use these protocols to create decentralized sharing economy applications.

Beenest also faces competition from one of the blockchain based startups called CryptoBNB. We like Bee Token better than CryptoBNB (a detailed guide explaining the differences is available here).

The Beenest alpha version will be released in Q1-Q2 2018. Expansion in 5+ U.S. cities will be done in 2019.

Token

Along with the BEE token, Ethereum/ERC20 tokens, bitcoin and fiat currencies can be used for transactions on the platform. However, the usage of BEE tokens provides some compelling advantages. Transactions on the Beenest platform will carry a 0% commission charge when BEE tokens are used. A 1% commission will be charged for payments via other cryptocurrencies while a 3.99% commission will be charged for fiat transactions.

Third party entities have to stake BEE tokes to get selected as third-party arbiters.

Team

The team members have worked for Uber, Google and Facebook. It’s amazing to see quality developers from the most sought-after organizations in the world working with the blockchain and creating decentralized applications. The world is awakening to the potential benefits of integrating blockchain in traditional use-cases.

Co-Founder and CEO Jonathan Chou was formerly a lead at Uber in the Security and Fraud division, and has experience in startups with family businesses that were sold to Sun Chemical and 3M.

The CTO and Co-Founder Tony Tran has over 10 years of development experience and has previously worked with Uber.

The other two co-founders Ali Ayyash and Min Kim worked with Google and Civic, respectively. Min Kim is a blockchain advisor to Quantstamp, WeTrust and Bitclave, all of which are credible organizations.

Verdict

The potential benefits of integrating blockchain technology in traditional applications and use-cases are quite evident. The Beenest decentralized application provides some solid advantages over competitors like Airbnb with lower commission charges, user incentives and trust.

Considering the market penetration of the cryptocurrencies, we all can agree that Bee Token won’t be an outright disruptor of Airbnb, at least in the short to medium term. But it definitely can carve a niche for itself most in the crypto community. One of the primary concerns we have is the roadmap, which has prioritized expansion in five U.S. cities as early as next year. That being said, once the product is thoroughly tested in 2019, expansion in other regions and countries won’t be much of an issue.

One important point worth considering is that Bee Token is not just about the property sharing application Beenest. The team is also providing Bee protocols for anyone to develop decentralized sharing applications on the blockchain.

Even though the scaling of Beenest will take some time, onboarding of dApps on Bee protocols in the near term will be a catalyst for the token valuation.

Growth Potential

  • Bee Token’s team is made up of engineers from Google, Facebook and Uber. It is one of the most tech-oriented teams that we have seen. We believe the team can deliver the product within the given timelines. +3
  • The project is very well conceived, and the whitepaper is detailed with technical and strategic components. +2
  • The sharing economy protocol can alone get a significant valuation, as many dApps would be eager to create sharing economy applications on the blockchain. +3.5
  • Once the business model is established and tested, scaling won’t be an issue for Beenest. Airbnb operates in 65,000 cities in 195 countries. +3

Risks

  • A Significant bonus was offered in the pre-sale (100% to private investors). The bonus tokens will be locked in for a month after listing, but still raises some concerns over a possible dump. -2
  • The real issues plaguing the sharing economy are around regulations with critics pointing out that the business model has an unfair advantage over traditional regulated businesses (see Uber vs. traditional taxi cabs). Bee Token does not seem to solve any of those issues and might face increased regulatory scrutiny going forward. -1
  • The roadmap stretches into 2020. We feel the expansion plans for Beenest are a bit slow after the initial roll out of services. -1

Disposition

We arrive at a score of +7.5 out of 10 for Bee Token. All aspects of the project, i.e., the home sharing application, Beenest and the sharing economy protocols, have substantial growth potential.

    Add up the points and you get 11.5. Take away the 4 points for the risk scoring, and you have marked the ICO as a 7.5 out of…. 10!
    Cmon guys…. its time to get serious.

    As my experience, Don’t trust all ICOs review on this website, it’s bias and just advertisement. I followed them two ICOs (REA, NTK) very high score, but both is very bad now.

ICO Analysis: IOV

Published

on

Although it is not extremely hard for tech-savvy people to get familiar with different blockchains, wallets, and exchanges, newcomers usually find all these quite complicated and troublesome. To keep his or her crypto-assets safe, one needs to create different wallets for every blockchain and performing transactions between wallets of the same chain is not exactly a pleasant experience as public keys acting as wallet addresses are quite long, hard to memorize and all these can lead to the common human error of sending these assets to wrong addresses. Due to most blockchains’ immutable and irreversible nature, once such an error is committed, one has a very small chance to get his or her assets back.

Indeed, surveys conducted among cryptocurrency users seem to agree with this line of reasoning. It is estimated that around 30% of the total BTC created are lost forever due to human errors and almost 95% of survey attendants acknowledge that they feel anxiety while sending crypto-assets. To solve these two important issues of the crypto-verse, the IOV team introduces two products, Blockchain Communication Protocol (BCP) and Blockchain Name Service (BNS).

Blockchain Communication Protocol enables the IOV platform users to keep their assets of different blockchains in the same place, removing the need to use several wallets. Thanks to this protocol, initially disconnected blockchains now can interoperate and users can exchange one crypto-asset of a blockchain with another of a different blockchain as the protocol allows cross-chain atomic swaps.

As this does not remove the problem of randomized public keys and the possibility of human error of sending assets to wrong addresses, Blockchain Name Service solves the second problem by providing a customizable naming service for wallets. These human-readable addresses, for instance, isabella*iov.value, will replace traditional value addresses, for instance, 17Rts7fvY9Co2kja4DirzAbFX57j858yfx, and make it much easier for users to send funds with a lower margin of error. It is also possible for blockchain entrepreneurs to create their projects in an easier way, thanks to the deployment tools and templates available to the person of interest.

All one needs to do in order to benefit from all these services that the IOV team provides is to use the user-friendly IOV wallet.

Token

The IOV token is used to pay the fees to create a new entity or transfer the ownership of a blockchain name or a value address name in the Blockchain Name Service. Staking IOV tokens is required to be a validator.

The token sale is conducted in three stages. In the first two stages of the pre-sale, contributors are asked to pay €0.08 and €0.09 per token respectively. As the public sale price is determined to be €0.10, the ICO investor should not worry about these low discounts which are provided to early contributors.

Although the IOV team is planning to move to their own native blockchain later, IOV tokens will be initially ERC-20 tokens and later will be swapped with native tokens. That is to say that the ICO investor should keep up him- or herself with the news and not miss the swap period.

IOV tokens will be minted based on demand, meaning that there is not a pre-determined number of IOV tokens to be created and thus there will be no unsold tokens. The team is planning to have the following token distribution:

  1. 65% private and public sales
  2. 12% company reserve for staking
  3. 3% bounties
  4. 20% founders, advisors, and employees

Tokens allocated for founders and employees will be locked up for one year and then 1/12 of these tokens will be released per month. Advisor tokens will be released after one year.

The team is planning to use the token sale proceeds as follows.

  1. 50% software development
  2. 30% marketing/sales
  3. 15% admin/legal
  4. 5% ecosystem

Team

Isabella Dell: Before joining as the chief system architect to Lisk, Dell worked as a system engineer at Cerner Corporation and as a technical solution architect at Sharp HealthCare.

Serge Karim Ganem: Ganem was the international project manager at Havas New York.

Ethan Frey: Prior to becoming IOV’s director of development, Frey worked as a senior software engineer at Tendermint.

Benjamin Simatos: Simatos was an executive director at J.P. Morgan for five years and an associate at Goldman Sachs for three years and two months.

Verdict

Below is a breakdown of the risks and growth potential of IOV.

Risks

  • Although the before mentioned problems are considered to be quite important within the cryptocurrency community, a hard-cap of €25,000,000 seems high. (-2)
  • The token has little use-case, especially among veteran crypto-currency investors. (-2)

Growth Potential

  • The project is led by the former chief system architect of Lisk, Isabelle Dell, and an ex-senior software engineer of Tendermint, Ethan Frey. (+3)
  • As there are not many projects with similar goals, the competition is low. (+2)
  • If the project gets popular among newbie crypto-investors, a network effect is possible. (+2)
  • Low bonuses provided to early token sale contributors prevents an immediate dump upon listing on exchanges. (+2)

Disposition

Two problems that newbie crypto-currency investors face are that they have to create new wallets for each blockchain, keeping their public and private keys safe. Another is the common error of inputting a wrong address while sending crypto-assets due to complicated public keys. IOV’s Blockchain Name Service and Blockchain Communication Protocol enable these investors to keep their funds in one single wallet and customize their wallet addresses, making it less troublesome and easier to avoid human error. The project is founded by experienced blockchain developers such as Lisk’s Isabelle Dell and Tendermint’s Ethan Frey.

The absence of projects with similar goals means that IOV will not meet much competition and that it might find itself quite popular in the case of widespread public adoption. Still, a hard-cap of €25,000,000 can be considered too high for this project. It is also extremely possible that the IOV wallet will not find the expected popularity among experienced crypto-currency investors who already got used to dealing with different wallets and complicated wallet addresses. IOV receives a 6/10.

ICO

ICO Analysis: BrikBit

Published

on

BrikBit is an ecosystem, based on the LISK blockchain, that develops and manages entire operations for the Real Estate Industry. Any Real Estate project in the world that wants to use blockchain for fund collection, design, creation and management, will be able create their own blockchain (as a BrikBit sidechain) with their own rules and features, according to the country and legislation of the project itself.

Shareholders involved in the Real Estate projects will be able to use the ecosystem to “automate, disintermediate and make more transparent both typical and implicit processes during all steps of a Real Estate enterprise.”

Several problems exist within the current Real Estate Industry which BrikBit offers the solution:

  1. Real Estate data is not precise and universal. With BrikBit, whoever buys a digital share of an asset, can buy something with a history and unique data recorded on a blockchain.
  2. There’s an illiquidity of value of RE properties. BrikBit offers the possibility to divide in digital shares a real estate asset, allowing people to own or sell a small portion of a property.
  3. It’s difficult to raise funds and to easily access real estate developments. The BrikBit ecosystem allows investors to buy shares of property anywhere in the world. They are no longer restricted to certain areas.
  4. There is a lack of transparency everywhere. Now, transactions within Real Estate development and in managing operations during construction and the life cycle of a building, will all be recorded permanently on the blockchain.

REDA: An acronym for Real Estate Digital Asset, represents the interface between the blockchain platform and the real building. It is a building avatar, created through the BrikBit platform, that summarizes all necessary information of a real building: structure, design, materials, plants, services. All this information will be organized through a dedicated protocol to manage each property. The protocol determines the partitions of a building, allowing users to optimize value exchange.

REDA will also be a customized token linked to each specific project, with its own property and rules costumed to each countries jurisdiction.

A cool feature is the BrikBit Social Professional Network. This is a meeting point for operators, investors, professionals and brokers who want to join forces and create round-tables to start potential cooperation. Members of the network must pay for access, which enables them to interact with BrikBit developers team to develop/implement the BrikBit ecosystem.

Token

BRIK is a utility token with several use cases. Its features:

  • It allows access to future services on the platform.
  • It is necessary to implement REDA and REDApps .
  • Consultant services on the Social Professional Network.
  • Purchase function with wallet, like Registration of Delegate, Voting, 2nd Security passphrase.
  • Used for the maintenance of the DPoS consensus method for block validation
  • Pay transaction fees and information exchange.

A second token, REDA, is a security token: “The BrikBit Digital Shares platform will allow the creation of REDA, each uniquely representative of a Real Estate project. Each REDA project will have a dedicated, univocal and transferable REDA Token.”

Distribution of BRIK:

  • 75% crowdsale
  • 8% Founder and seed wallet
  • 6% Technical Bounty
  • 5% Marketing Bounty
  • 3% Advisors and team
  • 3% Community expansion

Allocation of Funds:

  • 15% Admin and legal advisory
  • 20% Marketing and community
  • 40% Development
  • 5% IT structure
  • 20% Teams

Team

From Italy, 12 team members are listed.

Paolo Lettieri – Co-Founder/CEO.  Managing Partner for the last 9 years at UPA (Urbanism Planning Architecture), a giant international architecture firm based in  Milano (Italy), Abu Dhabi (UAE), and Baghdad (Iraq).

Alex Dell’Orto – Co-Founder/CTO. 10 years as Senior Architect at Laboratorio 51 srl.  Chairman of the Internation Blockchain Real Estate Association.

Stefano Prosdocimo – Co-Founder/CISO. Many years experience as H&S Manager for Sematic Italia and Autostrade per L’italia s.p.a.

Federico Riva –  Head of Web Development. Owner of K30 Creative Studios for the last 7 years. 4 years Digital Art Director and Strat at Lorena Antoniazzi. Knitwear.

There are 7 advisors listed, 4 of those are in head positions at FIBREE (Foundation for International Blockchain and Real Estate Expertise), alongside Alex Dell’Orto.

Verdict

BrikBit is working to create an Ecosystem where Real Estate Assets can be exchanged as Digital Shares. If they can deal with regulations, their protocol could eventually be used world wide. Right now though, only countries where a real estate blockchain based registry is under development will be able to participate. Countries such as Georgia, Sweden, Estonia, Ukraina, Honduras, Bermuda, Japan, India, Ghana, and Dubai Emirate (UAE).

Risk

  • Although BRIK is a utility token, exchanges may label it security and stay away from listing it. -1
  • Despite speaking at several blockchain conferences since 2016, no partnerships have officially formed. When asked about this they said, “After a few successful International events and presentations, we are currently speaking to many big names within the Financial, Legal and Engineering worlds to study every aspect of the ecosystem.We will communicate every official new partnership as they become official.”-1
  • Regulations. They are Swiss-based and comply with the local authority FINMA. They have legal advisors to help once BrikBit starts entering other jurisdictions, but this won’t be easy. The framework to link property rights and digital shares will be challenging..-1
  • Unsold tokens will be stored and used for testing, for future operations, and for resources for the first Real Estate pilot project. This means lots of token dumpage coming down the road. -2
  • There is an insane amount of inflation created to reward the block producers. -2

Growth Potential

  • Strong team +3
  • First mover advantage. +2
  • This isn’t just a platform, it’s a protocol that could eventually allow countries everywhere to run their own custom blockchain. +3
  • The team is out there on the conference circuit. Founder Alex Dell-Orto presented BrikBit in 2016 at the 1st IBREA (International Blockchain Real Estate Association) conference in Los Angeles. +1

  • Answering questions in Telegram, the team said, “We believe it will take 6/12 months to spread BrikBit adoptions to a core base of operators and corporations. However, to answer your first question (becoming the preferred method), timeframe realistically will be years, since we intend BrikBit to become the standard of the industry in the next few years.”+2
  • The whitepaper and roadmap are well thought out and professional. +2

Disposition

BrikBit has first mover advantage in an industry with unlimited growth. However, their token metrics, lack of hype,and the state of the crypto market as a whole makes participating in this token sale extremely risky. Chances are BRIK will be much cheaper after it hits exchanges. 6/10

ICO Analysis: CWEX

Published

on

Investing in fine wine is a very attractive proposition. However, if you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s risky business. When acquiring wine over the internet, collectors have to deal with high fees, counterfeit bottles, border taxation, regulations, and insurance. And then if their bottle arrives in one piece, they have to worry about storing it properly. CWEX is using the skills of the blockchain to help investors cut down, even eliminate, most of these costs.

“We provide fine wine vendors and cryptocurrency owners with the possibility to trade together for the first time in a live market environment on a truly global scale.”

Based on EOS, CWEX is creating a fine wine trading platform, and onboarding trusted partners and vendors. Every rare wine bottle offered for trading is provided with a unique certificate of authenticity issued on the blockchain. This certificate provides a buyer with an “unambiguous identification of his investment.”

Crypto holders that want to invest in wine, can trade it on CWEX platform without ever holding the bottle and worrying about insurance/storage. CWEX will store it for them in their Swiss-based facility. And all they need to trade with is their certificate.

The trading platform is managed by two separate entities; DotChain GmbH and Crypto Wine Exchange (CWEX).

DotChain GmbH (Switzerland) ensures the contractual validity of the fine wine products, trade accountability, and product authenticity.

Crypto Wine Exchange (Hong Kong) is the blockchain based marketplace.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Registered traders place a bid or offer on selected fine wine.
  2. Once offer is matched the trader is notified.
  3. CWEX, in partnership with DotChain GmbH, secures the asset, meets all the compliance requirements and insures your asset.
  4. A blockchain based ownership certificate is transferred to the buyer. it guarantees the bottle’s authenticity and the investment value.
  5. As the certificate owner, you have three options; 1) your ownership certification can be traded on the platform. 2) its held for the price appreciation. or 3) have your wine delivered to your house.

Token

CWEX is the native Crypto Wine Exchange token. It is built on EOS for unmatched TPS, scalability, no fees, multiple wallets, and intuitive smart contract programming.

The main benefit of CWEX token is that it reduces trading fees. The system gives discounts of deductible fees automatically on the condition of having enough CWEX in your account.

Distribution:

  • 62% Crowdsale
  • 12% Community growth
  • 14% Team
  • 3% Bounty
  • 5% Legal
  • 4% Future stakeholder

Allocation

  • 25% Global partner and vendor management
  • 25% CWEX platform development
  • 25% Market compliance management
  • 25% Expansion and operations

Team

From Switzerland, this impressive team has 5 founders.

Jacob Manuel Kallupurackal – Co-Founder/CEO. He has worked for Cisco since 2015 as a Global Training Program Manager.

Maxim Andersen – Co-Founder/Blockchain Expert. 5 years as a Beam Instrumentation Specialist for CERN. Over 2 years as Software Engineer at CISCO.

Thomas Tsang – Co-Founder/Project Manager. 3 years as Remote Participation Analyst for the United Nations Telecommunications Union.

Nadir Zemrani – Co-Founder/Finance Manager. Master of Business from Swiss Management School in 2017.

Stephen Gonah – Co-Founder/Compliance Expert. Spent 14 years in different Officer roles for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.

David Guye – Partner Relations Manager. Huge wine expert.

Their current Advisory Board has 4 members. 3 of them look impressive with experience at JP Morgan, UN Food Program, HSBC, and Schroders.

Verdict

Despite being a risky and challenging investment, if it turns out fine wine, it can be quite profitable. According to wineinvestment.com, “the fine wine market has consistently delivered a positive absolute return over any 5-year return. More importantly, of the total 57 Five-Year periods that we covered (2008-2018), only 9 periods experienced negative returns.”

Risks

  • The token use case isn’t very exciting. It looks like most of its purpose is to save on trading fees. -1
  • The community is small. 300+ Twitter, 100 viewers of their ad video, 4,000 Telegram (bounty chasers). -1
  • 5 co-founders is a lot of chefs in the kitchen. -1

Growth Potential

  • As stated above, wine has consistently delivered positive returns to investors. When traders start making even better returns thanks to CWEX, and word gets out, it will ramp up the entire market. +3
  • On Crypto Wine Exchange, you can trade in CWEX/EOS/BTC/ETH/NEO/USDT. +2
  • The team is high grade. +3
  • There are a lot of wine collectors/investors out there. +2

Disposition

Cool concept. Great looking team. Very possible this project ages like a fine wine. 7/10
