ICO Analysis: Bethereum – Decentralized Social Betting Platform

Published

on

Bethereum is a decentralized, social betting platform built on Ethereum technology. In Bethereum, players bet with friends and other players, not against a bookmaker with house odds. All bets on the platform are carried out via the Bether token (BTHR).

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

The Bethereum solution leverages blockchain technology to ensure the safest and most transparent betting experience possible. Players create the bets, set the rules and provide the liquidity for fulfilling payouts since there is no middleman involved. Smart contracts protect funds and automatically distribute winnings based on bet conditions and outcomes. The entire process is fully decentralized, secure and self-regulating.

Bethereum has ambitions to create the most user-friendly betting application and to support it with social virality and gaming elements (e.g., alliances, achievements, leaderboards, chat). Bethereum will initially enable sports betting and then extend to eSports, live betting and even third-party games.  Unlike other solutions limited to simply a blockchain sportsbook, Bethereum is creating a platform catering to the needs of multiple consumer and business parties: casual players, high rollers, white-label customers, conventional betting agencies and third-party developers. Their vision is to develop a broad B2C and B2B ecosystem and establish their Bether token as a global betting standard.

Bethereum is designed to be intuitive and simple to use in order to attract casual bettors, including players who’ve never placed bets before. On the other end of the spectrum, Bethereum’s High Roller Club will cater to high rollers. With Bethereum’s social betting solution, every bet needs to be matched by someone else so high rollers can safely, easily, and legally bet as high an amount as they wish. This is a major advantage offered to high rollers over conventional centralized operators (which limit maximum bet amounts in order to protect the “House” from high payout liabilities).

The Bethereum social betting app will be available for Android, iOS, and Web including the following:


– 24/7 betting on a large set of sport teams
– jackpot and time-based events
– built-in player chat
– unique social features (leaderboards, group events, achievements, alliances)
– betting on local teams
– exclusive High Roller Club
– detailed bet history and stats
– secure wallet and withdrawal options
– easy to navigate, personalized experience
– live scores and news on favorite teams
– integration of third-party games

*** Bethereum already has an MVP available on the App Store.

The betting process on Bethereum is as follows:

Step 1 – Create a bet or join an existing bet
Step 2 – Set up the bet conditions: Choose bet amount, how the winnings will be split
Step 3 – Challenge friends, who will be immediately notified and can join right in
Step 4 – Watch the progress of your bet and get notifications about winners and rankings
Step 5 – Smart Contract pays out the winners automatically and instantly after the conclusion of all bet events

Token

Bether (BTHR) is a deflationary and un-mineable utility ERC20 token fuelling the entire Bethereum solution. It is the digital token used for every platform transaction, for paying third-party developers for their games, and for enabling key platform processes.

Smart contracts will ensure bets are secure and not manipulated, as well as automatically distribute winnings. 5% of all winnings will be charged to players in order to cover the cost of third-party services (e.g., smart contracts, data feeds, statistics). Ten percent of this commission will be automatically burned, resulting in a decrease of token supply while increasing value of BTHR. Token burning will end December 31, 2022, or when 50% of all tokens distributed during the token sale has been burned, whichever event comes first.

The price will be 1 ETH = 17,500 BTHR with a hard cap of 25,000 ETH. The public presale will begin April 11, 2018, followed by the main sale in May 2018. 60% of tokens will be available for the token sale with all unsold and unallocated tokens being destroyed. Tokens allocated to the team and advisors will vest over a period of 72 weeks. You can view the vesting schedule here: bethereum.com/token.html.

The token distribution is as follows:

  • 60% Token Sale
  • 20% Team & Advisers (vested for 72 weeks)
  • 12% Long-Term Budget
  • 5% Token Sale Costs (includes marketing)
  • 3% Bounty Program

Team

The team and advisors are 20+ strong with experienced entrepreneurs, corporate executives, managers, marketers, software engineers, and graphic designers. Co-founder Peter Gal is Former Director of Strategy & New Business Development at Slovak Telekom (the largest Slovak multimedia operator) and a seasoned executive with 16 years’ experience leading strategic initiatives in Telco, IT, and banking. Co-founder Martin Herman is a development expert and was already founding startups in Silicon Valley at the age of 18. CEO Giacomo Tognoni is a marketing and gamification expert, former Chief Commercial Officer for a Telco operator, and an international executive with 20 years’ experience in mobile gaming, Telco, and IT. Bethereum has multiple advisers including Philip Staehelin, former CEO of €500M company and managing partner of Roland Berger consulting. Philip is also the co-owner of StartupYard (CEE’s longest running accelerator).

Verdict

Bethereum is a social betting platform that allows people to play against each other, eliminating bookmakers and third-party betting agencies from the process. Smart Contracts automatically distribute winnings and eliminate the risk of human error or manipulation. This should attract casual bettors as well as seasoned bettors. The high roller section Bethereum is including is definitely a plus and has very strong revenue potential.

Their B2B angle could create solid demand for the token, well beyond consumer adoption. Not only will Bethereum appeal to first-time bettors, casual bettors, seasoned bettors, and high rollers, they will also integrate selected games and apps from third-party developers. Bethereum has an excellent team and idea. However, implementation, adoption and how they fare against their competitors will be the determining factors.

Risks

  • Although Bethereum is aiming to be different from other betting platforms, they will still have to compete with others in the industry such as NoLimitcoin, LuckBox, and a number of others. -1.5
  • We are not sure how they would be enforced, as some governments have anti-gambling laws currently in place. -1

Growth Potential

  • In the current climate of ICOs, hype is playing an important role in the success or failure before and after token sales. With a project’s community driving a lot of the hype, Bethereum is capitalizing with a large, growing community that’s active with over 53k Telegram members, 20k Twitter followers, and 17k Facebook followers. +2
  • With the price of Ethereum having dropped dramatically recently, a project with their token price pegged to ETH instead of USD can be viewed as an excellent value opportunity. +1
  • Bethereum has a large team capable of performing the workload required to achieve their goals and ambitions, as well as bringing the experience needed in the necessary fields. +4
  • Any ico that has a working prototype prior to their public sale is ahead of the game. Bethereum has a prototype app available in the app store for iOS devices called Bethereum Lite includes a selection of sports and leagues. +3

Disposition

Bethereum aims to bring back engagement and the social interaction to betting by allowing players to bet against each other instead bookies while using blockchain technology and smart contracts for transparency and security. Bethereum seeks to distinguish itself from other betting platforms by attracting casual gamblers with an interface that is user-friendly, intuitive as well as make it simple to create an account, and through the use of gamification (the application of game design principles and techniques to non-gaming contexts) which enhances player engagement, satisfaction, and loyalty. Blockchain technology and smart contracts are the perfect fit for this betting platform. With Bethereum’s unique approach, they may just be an ico worth betting on. Bethereum receives a 7.5 out of 10 rating.

    Did the shameful amount of paid fake reviews and fake comments have any bearing on your rating of this ICO? Why does a company with a good product and team need to trick the community?

ICO Analysis: Verasity (VRA)

Published

on

Verasity is a video-sharing platform that caters to content creators and rewards viewers with VERA tokens just for watching content, sharing videos, watching ads and for referrals. Over the past few years, brands have shifted their advertising model to allow influencers to share products with their audience. This gives products a much more personal touch and translates to better conversions.

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

Verasity will provide a way for viewers to help support their favorite channels by the use of VeraSparks. VeraSparks is a smart contract that allows viewers to buy and own a portion of a channel, and be rewarded with profits especially in future growth.

How is Verasity different than the competition in this field? Verasity is the only platform combining the following: Decentralized Proprietary Blockchain, Proof of View (PoV) – patent pending, Watch and Earn, Centralized Video Distribution, VeraSparks and the Spark Marketplace, and multiple ways for creators and users to earn VERA tokens. Just one of Veracity’s features, Proof of View (PoV), will help solve the problem of fake reviews that affect creators and advertisers.

Token

The VERA token is an ERC-20 token used as a payment method between brands and creators directly ensuring that brand placements are verified through Verasity’s Proof of View technology. Not only do brands now have direct access to content creators, but advertisers have the opportunity to reward viewers. Views are recorded on the blockchain so that validating viewer interaction is easily auditable. Proof of View is Verasity’s Patent Pending (*US and international patent pending, application number 62627285) system that provides more accurate audience metrics than traditional methods.

  • A complete list of team members and advisors can be found at verasity.io.

Verdict

Verasity will use blockchain technology to finally have a transparent and reliable solution to the many problems facing the video sharing industry. Some of the key features of Verasity’s blockchain technologies are: Verasity High-Performance Blockchain, VERA Transactions, Proof of View (patent pending) and DPoS. All of the videos run off of VeraPlayer, which is a blockchain enabled video player that allows users to view content securely from many mobile and desktop devices without the need to install additional software. Verasity has partnered with Akamai, a leading global content distribution network. This enables Verasity to deliver over 8 PetaBytes of video data per month, allowing them to scale quickly. If Verasity continues to deliver on the benchmarks outlined on their roadmap, they could quickly become a major player in this highly competitive field.

Risks

  • Although Verasity is unique with their own blockchain and PoV, it still has competition such as Steem, Basic Attention Token, Props, and Flixxo. -1.25
  • The hard cap is on the high side at 6,245,750,000 VRA which equates to over $46M USD. -1.5

Growth Potential

  • Verasity has a large and experienced team along with top-notch advisers that are capable of building and scaling the company successfully. +4
  • Having multiple ways to earn for creators and viewers has the potential to grow at a fast pace while their partnership with Akamai will allow for scalability. Basic Attention Token may use Verasity as its default video player. +3.5
  • Hype and community are important to create exposure for ICOs. Verasity has over 41k telegram members, 10k Twitter followers, and 237k Facebook followers. +2.5

Disposition

Blockchain platforms are in high demand right now. Verasity is no exception. With internet traffic being worth $312 billion by 2021, online video is set to account for 82% of all traffic. Company giants such as Facebook and Google generated $191 billion in advertising revenue in 2017. Personal data has become the new commodity and Verasity aims to reward creators and content publishers. Verasity is 100% SICOP compliant (Sustainable ICOs Protocol) which defines rules and methodology to determine whether ICOs are secure, follow good practices and ethical rules. Verasity is one of the few ICOs that is completely compliant. In an ICO atmosphere riddled with scams, this gives Verasity a head start. Due to the enormous potential as a successful first mover and the fact that they have followed very strict rules to be ethically compliant, Verasity receives a rating of 7.25 out of 10.

ICO Analysis: Cardium

Published

on

Venture capitalist Anthony Pompliano of Morgan Creek Blockchain Capital is looking to “tokenize the world,” and he recently said that eventually, all assets will be on the blockchain. He might get his wish sooner than he thinks, as evidenced by one of the latest blockchain startups planning an ICO.

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

Russia-based Cardium basically brings FitBit to the blockchain with a proprietary device dubbed fitness tracker that’s similarly worn on the wrist and is the heart of the project. Cardium, which is designed to tackle the issue of obesity and the chronic diseases it leaves in its wake, like diabetes and cancer, tokenizes daily activity and incentives users with a digital currency as a reward.

It’s a massive ecosystem, one comprised not only of a native digital currency but also a partner gym-fueled mining pool that generates additional tokens that fuel the platform. The reason for gym-mining is to motivate members to participate in high-speed mining activity at participating gyms and while they’re there, exercising and socializing.

The problem Cardium is looking to solve is real, as evidenced by predictions for excess weight and obesity to affect 20% of the global population by 2025. These issues are especially pervasive in but not limited to developing nations. Cardium believes that by incentivizing its members with a reward for physical activity, whether high-intensity or moderate, people will prioritize cardiovascular activity. Cardium is looking to ride the wave of the second generation of wearable devices, one that Cardium believes will work in tandem with the Internet of Things (IoT) technology for autonomous smart devices.

// -- Become a yearly Platinum Member and save 69 USD. Click here to change your current membership -- //

Here are a few of the features of its device:

  • “Tracking the number of steps and calories and setting goals”
  • “Monitoring the effectiveness and quality of sleep”
  • “Heart rate measurement

For every calorie users burn, they receive Cardium tokens.

Token

Cardium (CAD) is an ERC-20 smart-contract fueled token on the Ethereum network. CAD tokens that are generated from mining can be directed toward the partner network, such as gym membership discounts and sports product promotions, for instance. Cardium estimates that by consuming 2,000 KCALs per day, users can earn 2.64 CAD tokens daily based on the number of calories burned. Cardium has placed a ceiling on the lifetime number of tokens at 475,372,000,000 based on expectations to reach 100 million people over a decade. Any unused tokens will be burned.

Source: Cardium White Paper

Team

Cardium’s management team is comprised of four co-founders.

Philipp Klimov is founder and CEO. He boasts experience at leading Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky and experience in DDoS prevention, which bolsters the security profile of Cardium.

Alexander Perminov, anothe co-founder, specializes in data analytics.

Co-Founder Roman Chistyakov brings two decades of experience at major Russian corporations to the table, including Accenture, Rosneft and others.

Sergey Chernikov, co-founder and CTO, specializes in “database design, performance and high-load systems.”

Verdict

Cardium makes it difficult to disagree with physical fitness on the blockchain, and the partner network adds another layer of engagement. Investors should bear in mind, however, that the fitness tracker device wasn’t even a twinkle in the eye of its developers a year ago. It was born at the height of the cryptocurrency fever in December 2017.

While that doesn’t undermine the deal, it does increase the risk. Cardium must promote their brand and people must be willing to use their ecosystem. Otherwise, the reward tokens lose their appeal. If their roadmap materializes, this project could be a winner.

Risks

  • Cardium is a new concept that began at year-end 2017. While the startup has a defined roadmap through year-end 2018, it’s unclear if their fitness tracker is in development yet (samples are being tested this month, according to the company’s roadmap). There’s no history of performance or guarantee the market has room for another fitness tracker. -2.5
  • This brings up another risk, which is the possibility that a company like FitBit, that has proven sales, or worse Google or Apple, which similarly boast wearable products, could decide to integrate blockchain technology and issue digital tokens, which would raise the competition stakes significantly. -2

Growth Opportunity

  • Demand for wearable devices is on the rise, as illustrated below. Meanwhile, and while this part is unfortunate, the number of people with an excessive body mass index (BMI) is also increasing. Cardium has figured out a way to capitalize on each of these trends while at the same time improving the health of the global population. +4

Source: Cardium White Paper

  • Even though Cardium hasn’t generated any sales yet, they have a defined path to do so. The company will generate revenue from sales of the fitness tracker, a device by which all physical activity is measured and sent back to a smartphone and later to Cardium. They expect in year one to “attract” 10 million people and generate EBITDA of USD 150 million. +3
  • Innovation. Cardium’s concept of tokenizing daily activities could be brilliant. Consider the former wildly popular US television competition, “The Biggest Loser”. For 17 seasons, overweight contestants were tasked with losing weight by the carrot and stick method including a USD 250,000 prize reserved for one lucky winner. +3.5
  • Cardium is being advised by Moscow-based Conner & Company for the ICO. This relationship provides greater transparency to potential ICO participants and is a plus. +1.5

Disposition

We arrive at a score of 7.5 out of 10 for the Cardium ICO.

ICO Analysis: Layer Protocol (LRX)

Published

on

With the sharing economy industry poised to soon surpass $40 billion in revenues, the profit potential is massive. Companies such as Airbnb, Uber, and Zipcar depend on user ratings and reviews to give potential customers insight into assets or services before they commit to using them. The issue with the current reputation management system is that it is exclusive to each company and not shared. This allows users with bad reviews to go from one company to another.

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

Layer Protocol will solve this issue and tap into this enormous industry by allowing companies to share user reputation history while maintaining security utilizing the blockchain. Layer Protocol is a borderless reputation and incentive system designed to unify the sharing economy companies around the world. Layer Protocol will help establish decentralized reputations that can move freely from sharing platform to sharing platform.

Token

LRX is an ERC20 token that will provide economic incentives for scalable computation of reputation scores through master nodes, and drives community governance. Companies using Layer are also incentivized to use LRX for rewards and accept LRX for payments. Layer Protocol has a partnership with Spin, North America’s leading electric personal mobility company, which will give their blockchain protocol and LRX use from the onset. Spin has over 70 markets in the U.S., with thousands of scooters and bikes on the street, and has been heavily featured on The New York Times, CNN, Bloomberg, and The Washington Post. As Layer’s first partner, Spin will use Layer to power their reputation system, and accept the LRX token as payment for rentals, in addition to fiat.

// -- Become a yearly Platinum Member and save 69 USD. Click here to change your current membership -- //

There will be a total supply of 1 billion LRX tokens with 400 million available for purchase during the token sale. The token price is 1 LRX = $0.0375 USD with a hard cap of $15,000,000 USD. Team tokens will be vested for a 2-year period.

Team

The Layer Protocol team appears solid bringing leadership and experience from companies such as Y Combinator, Lyft, Samsung, Fitbit, and Stanford.

Team member Euwyn Poon is an entrepreneur, lawyer and software engineer who has been involved in the blockchain industry for five years. In 2014, he co-founded Delta, one of the first projects to offer interest-bearing bitcoin accounts, which was backed by Y Combinator, Initialized Capital, and Winklevoss Capital. He graduated from Cornell and has spoken at CoinSummit London and Inside Bitcoins and has been featured on Bloomberg, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Forbes, Vice, CNBC and Fox Business Network.

Advisers include:

  • David Chen: Former Partner at Lightspeed
  • Kenzi Wang: General Partner at AU21, a blockchain fund
  • Dmitry Grishin: Co-founder of Grishin Robotics, Mail.ru (DST), one of Russia’s largest internet companies
  • Peter Szeli: Partner at Skyline Capital Group
  • Michael Ma: General Partner at Liquid 2 Ventures
  • Gee Chuang: Co-founder of Ink Protocoland Listia
  • Josh Fraser: Co-founder of Origin Protocol
  • Matthew Liu: Co-founder of Origin Protocol
  • Firoz Khan: Founder of Decentralised Chain
  • Chandler Guo: Blockchain investor (ETH, NEO, Qtum, Binance, Huobi, Gate.io)

Verdict

Layer Protocol will provide economic incentives for scalable computation of reputation scores, which will encourage adoption of the protocol and drive community governance. As well as a decentralized reputation system for the global sharing economy, Layer Protocol aims to be a decentralized credit scoring agency which will help accelerate the growth of the sharing economy. If mass adoption and implementation occur, the future looks bright for Layer Protocol.

Risks

  • Spin has committed to adopting Layer Protocol as its de facto reputation, rewards, and payment system. There is an internal prototype that’s being tested with Spin, but it’s not open sourced or on the testnet yet. -2
  • As with all industries that can benefit from blockchain technology, there will be competitors to Layer Protocol, such as Reputoken and others are sure to follow. However, Layer Protocol does have a leg up on the competition with their partnership with Spin. -1

Growth Potential

  • Having partnerships clearly increases the chance of success for an ICO. As well as having Spin set to use Layer Protocol, the company has also partnered with other blockchain players, including Origin Protocol, Insights Network, and Quantstamp. +4
  • The team members and advisers bring the necessary experience to achieve the project’s goals. The team is also showing commitment to the success of the project by having a 2-year vesting period. +3.5
  • Savvy investors searching for projects that include the option to own masternodes will be pleased to learn that masternodes will be available with LRX. +2.5

Disposition

2018 is an exciting time for blockchain technology. So much innovation is happening with new ICOs launching on a daily basis. Many of these ICOs have nothing more than a whitepaper and are created without solid use cases. Spin has committed to using Layer Protocol which grants a use case from day one. As more sharing economy companies come onboard, Layer Protocol has the potential to be one of the ICO success stories in 2018. Layer Protocol receives a 7 out of 10 rating.

Investment Details

  • Token Symbol: LRX
  • Platform: Ethereum
  • Token Price: 1 LRX = 0.0375 USD
  • Token Supply: 1,000,000,000 LRX
  • Available for Purchase: 400,000,000 LRX
  • Hard Cap: $15,000,000 USD
  • Pre-Sale: On-Going
  • Main Sale: TBA
  • Payments Accepted: ETH
