ICO Analysis: CarTaxi

Published

on

CarTaxi is offering a blockchain-based smartphone application specifically designed for car towing.

Referred to as the “uber for car towing”, CarTaxi allows users to call for road assistance wherever they are and arrange for their car to be towed at any time. CarTaxi combines geolocation with blockchain to bring all available tow trucks to a single online network.

The end user only has to download a mobile app to use it.
CarTaxi has launched in over 20 cities.

For its services, CarTaxi charges a 15% on each transaction.

CarTaxi estimates the global towing industry market to be worth around $26 billion, with annual growth between 2.5% to 5%. Since the number of cars on the road is also growing at a similar rate, it can be estimated that the car towing market could reach $32 billion by 2022.

CarTaxi claims that the app is already a leader in Russia and is fully operationally active and functioning. The team currently has offices in San Antonio, Hong Kong, and Moscow.

The whitepaper states the goal to capture 20% of the world market to become the “#1 name in the minds of drivers around the globe.”

Team

The CarTaxi Team has members from a variety of disciplines, heavily weighted on the development side. The CEO, Taras Semenov, comes from a business and strategic consulting background and has worked for SOLEV International Consortium.

More information about the team can be found in the CarTaxi whitepaper here.

The majority of the team has been on the CarTaxi project since 2016.

CTX Tokens and Distribution

The CarTaxi ICO will offer 500,000,000 CarTaxi tokens (66%) of the total tokens in two tiers: pre:ICO and ICO. The pre-ICO tokens are sold at a 46% discount. Funder tokens are frozen for sale for 5 months from the date of the ICO.

The total amount of announced tokens is 750,000,000, and these represent 100% ownership of CarTaxi. The tokens pay out dividends.

Investor income comes in two parts:

  1. Dividends. 1.25% of company income goes toward dividend distribution, which is accrued once a month. The first distribution is on September 15th, 2017 for token holders.
  2. The growth of the market value of the token. 2.25% of profit goes to buying tokens on the market with the goal of increasing market value. If there is a shortage of tokens on the market, unspent profits are considered additional profit and dividends will be increased.

The public ICO aims to offer 487,500,000 CTX at a price of around $0.133 per 1 CTX  for a total of 64,837,500.

CarTaxi Progress

So far, CarTaxi has listed the following as completed prior to the ICO:

  • Developed and debugged software  
  • Passed the chain from the prototype to alpha and beta versions of the service.  
  • Formed a strong team of operational offices and a development team.
  • Launched the service on the first test market, Russia.
  • 2Q 2017  The service is launched and successfully operates in the Russian market.  Up to 50% of the contractors in the Russian market are already connected to the service: Infrastructure has been prepared for the explosive growth and takeover of the Russian market.  
  • Partners are selected to quickly connect contractors in offices in the USA and China.

For 2018 and beyond, CarTaxi plans to:

  • Massive promotion in the US and Chinese markets  
  • Opening representative offices in India, South America, Southeast Asia, Eastern and Western Europe to collect partners for the connection of contractors.  
  • Platform support  
  • Scaling the system.
  • 2019  Massive promotion in connected markets.  
  • Maintaining dominance in the CIS  

The Use of Proceeds is as follows:

The Verdict

My initial reaction to CarTaxi is similar to how I look at a good chunk of ICOs: why does this have to be on blockchain and running on Ethereum?”

CarTaxi uses blockchain to process payments worldwide, which helps to make sure funds are transferred safely and services are provided. But, again, there are many companies that can already do this without using blockchain. This isn’t to say that the use of blockchain doesn’t make sense here or isn’t advantageous, it’s just that I don’t think it commands a lot of credit for ICO evaluation purposes.

Additionally, CarTaxi uses smart contracts to monitor the transportation process from start to finish and helps users track the safety of their vehicle while being transported. This is cool because it guarantees that the customer’s cargo is either kept secure, or damage will be compensated without lengthy and unnecessary litigation.

Risks:

  • The CarTaxi claims that “For crypto-investors this is a chance to be the tokenholder of an up and running project set for the explosive increase of market share.” This should go without saying, but any app or company that flat out promises an “explosive increase of market share” should be looked at with inherent speculation.  -1
  • Competition. While CarTaxi claims the vehicle towing business hasn’t been automated on a global scale, what’s stopping someone *ahem* Uber *ahem* from utilizing their already existing infrastructure and user base to take over? -2
  • CarTaxi wants to become the “#1 name in the minds of drivers around the globe” and capture a 20% global market share. While ambitious, I see a few flaws with this thinking. The first is a gross overestimation of how passionately drivers feel about getting their car towed, or how often they would need a service like this. The majority of drivers have never needed to call a tow truck, and if they did, likely organized something through their insurance or looked up a tow truck company on their phone. -2
  • Capturing a 20% global share is no easy feat. Many companies that base their business models around capturing x% of a huge market inevitably head towards disappointment. Over the next 5 years, CarTaxi’s annual revenue target is $0.97 billion. -1
  • The CarTaxi Team has members from a variety of disciplines, heavily weighted on the development side. Their plans for post-ICO involve a ton of promotion, and a huge chunk of their budget devoted to primarily promotional activities ($18.5m budget for 2018, $20m for 2019). This promotion will be a massive endeavor, especially for a team that is primarily tech. It’s likely going to require outsourcing or partnering with a company that can handle this, but I saw nothing in the whitepaper hinting at a strategic partnership. -1
  • The whitepaper claims the app is already functional in Russia, but didn’t disclose any current profitability. The lack of information leads me to believe that the company isn’t making any money while being the “#1 app in Russia”. -1
  • Typo of “Etherium” in the whitepaper. Yes, this seems like a very minuscule point, but it reflects on the overall quality of the whitepaper, which reflects on the current marketing skillset of the team. If the team can make a simple oversight over a structural component of why their company is ICOing, while trying to raise $64,837,500, it makes me wonder how they’ll handle the massive marketing efforts required in the future. -.1

Growth Potential:

  • The towing vehicle towing business globally doesn’t provide the most convenient service. People who need their cars towed in many countries still use old methods that rely on human operators and relatively imprecise processes. +2
  • The CarTaxi team currently has offices in San Antonio, Hong Kong, and Moscow. +2
  • I like the way CarTaxi aims to compensate its investors via dividends and buying back its own tokens. A company that plans to buy back its own tokens shows that its incentives are aligned with sustainable growth, rather than just raising a lump sum and leaving their tokens to market forces. This is something that many ICOs lack and is worth looking into. +4
  • The team is very developer heavy, which shows promise that the product that they are raising for will actually be functional (the whitepaper says it already is). +2
  • The team doesn’t have a lot of marketing talent. There are two sides to every coin, and something to note is that the approach CarTaxi has taken so far has been very product-focused. This is a good thing because while the current marketing efforts are comparatively poor to over-marketed coins, it could signal that the majority of focus and investment has gone towards building out a good product. +1

Disposition

We get to a +2.9 out of 10 for CarTaxi. This seems like a startup team looking to capitalize on the ICO rush to raise some money, which poses an argument against the long-term value of the coin. However, the whitepaper did say that the company plans to buy back their tokens every year using profits in order to boost the market value of the tokens for holders, while also providing an annual dividend.

    Glad you came up with the same reaction I did “But…..why?”

    This doesn’t need a blockchain. Just scrambling to make money from ICO fever.

    Agreed. What do you think of airfox’s airtoken that is ico’ing soon? http://www.airtoken.com. As a Harvard labs startup it seems legitimate and pretty interesting.

ICO Analysis: MOBU

Published

on

There’s a lot of buzz around security token offerings (STOs), and for good reason. There’s an $80 trillion securities market that has barely been touched by blockchain. Uncertainty and discrepancy in regulations have stifled the market up to this point. But it’s just a matter of time before the world is swimming in STOs.

This new project, MOBU, wants to provide a platform for launching compliant security tokens. This platform will “incorporate the ability to select experienced legal counsel across multiple jurisdictions within the platform, token issuers can be sure they can create compliant tokens customed to their local jurisdictions.”

From the whitepaper:

“MOBU is a decentralized blockchain based organized ICO platform for launching compliant security tokens. Real businesses such as property development companies, gold mines, retail companies and many more will be able to launch security tokens on the MOBU platform. MOBU connects approved entrepreneurs and investors by cutting out middlemen.”

Some core features of the platform:

  • MOB20 Protocol that defines a set of commands for security tokens to implement.
  • Supports Reg S, D, and A+ compliant security token offerings.
  • Vetted tender process for: legal providers, smart contract developers, escrow providers, KYC providers, etc.
  • A new standard called, Know Your Supplier (KYS), for complete due diligence compliance for all service providers using the platform.
  • A rating system for service providers which will create a free marketplace for investors.
  • A network of authorization centers for KYC/AML compliance.

This is only a taste of what MOBU plans to offer; check out the whitepaper here for more details.

Token

MOBU is a utility token and is the key to smart contracts and the ecosystem. Found on  pages 15-18 of the whitepaper is all the different purposes of the token, including MOBU Referrals, “where companies or individuals referring ICO issuers onto MOBU will be rewarded in MOBU tokens which will be equivalent of one year’s revenue generated on the platform by the percentage of fees generated from the marketplace.” Additionally, “This amount will be paid in MOBU and locked-up over a 3-year period also ensuring an increase in demand and scarcity of MOBU.”

There is also what’s called a “lockup” utility: All the ICO service providers on the MOBU will stake a certain amount of MOBU tokens to receive the right to operate in the ecosystem. These tokens will be locked up for the full duration while the service provider remains and utilizes the MOBU ecosystem.

Distribution:

Team

Mostly from South Africa, 12 members of the management team are listed. As a whole, they seem good, but not great. Here are a few that stood out.

Juan Engelbrecht – Founder/CEO. Also founded Zaber (a large South Africa crypto farm) in 2015. He spent 2 years as Director at Khalifa Capital. Has been Director at Evolve Fund Managers since 2013.

Paul Pelser – CFO.  He spent 17 years as an accountant for PSP Pelsar Accountants. He has been the owner of Pregal Mining for the last seven years,

Paresh Masani – Blockchain/security engineer. He spent three years as Mobile Platform Exec Director at Goldman Sachs, London. Senior Director at Thomson Reuters and ETX Capital.

A total of 12 Advisors, and two are from Realstart.com, a custom software development company. At least six of them are ICO experts and three are blockchain enthusiasts.

Verdict

This is an extremely attractive project andnd it looks like the hype/demand for this token is there. They already raised $3 million in the pre-sale, and are asking for just $6.5 mill more in the public sale.

Being a front-runner in the cryptocurrency space has proven to be a beautiful thing. When we asked CEO Juan Engelbrecht, who is your nos 1 and 2 competitors, he named Securitize and Polymath. Polymath has a $75 million market cap.

Risks

  • Pretty much crickets in their GitHub. Twelve followers. -1
  • No MVP out yet. They provide this video of what the MVP will look like, though. -1
  •  Non-accredited investors from the US are banned from using the platform. This is the opposite of a risk but gets a minus nonetheless. -1 
  • Their Blockchain Engineer, Paresh Masani (Goldman Sachs and Barclays) is a stud. But the rest of the team and advisors seem pretty average. -1
  • At this point in time, no major exchange is going to list the security tokens birthed from MOBU. When asked about this in Telegram their CEO said, “LA token has a security token exchange division. Also, MOBU is securing equity stake in an operational stock exchange. GBAX and Tzero will also have security token exchanges available soon.” -0.8

Growth Potential

  • They already have a Chrome and Gold mining business signed up to tokenize through MOBU. +2
  • The $9 million hard cap leaves all kinds of room for gains.+3
  • 120 million tokens is all there will ever be; 100% of them will be sold in the ICO. +1
  • MOBU will develop a First Forex Percentage Allocation Money Management Account and will retain 20% of the authorized tokens to put back into the development of the MOBU Platform.+2
  • From the company: “MOBU token will be available on most exchanges such as Bancor but have already been approved by COINEXCHANGE, CRYPTOPIA, IDEX, GET BTC, HitBTC, LIVECOIN and YoBit.net.”+2
  • Although most of these reviewers have lost credibility over the last year, their strong scores prove the hype train around this project is real. +2

Disposition

We usually don’t cover ICOs post-pre-sale, but this one is an exception because it’s still an attractive deal. The pre-sale bonus was 25%, and if you are fortunate enough to get into this crowdsale the bonus will be 20-25% depending on how early you get in. After that, the sky is the limit for MOBU.  7.2/10

ICO Analysis: MFChain

Published

on

MFChain is in essence an entire digital economy with a vision towards creating an infrastructure within the blockchain community which is supportive of all cryptocurrencies. This ecosystem will enable seamless transactions and development to take place and facilitate an entire support network to grow around the future of the MFMainnet.

Beginning with a payments processing and rewards solution, the project will quickly expand with the launch of a variety of cross-chain features including a multi-currency ICO platform, and multi-language smart contract programming within the all encompassing ecosystem. This is ultimately focused on bringing the entire blockchain community of developers, merchants and consumers together in one central and flexible hub.

Empowering Rewards System

One of the major features of the platform which will be implemented initially is the unique rewards system. This will incentivize not only consumers, but also merchants with rebates of up to 1% available for both parties as well as the freedom and flexibility to accept multiple crypto currencies securely. All of which can be done through any Android or iOS powered mobile device which merchants can use as a POS system.

This will be the first of many innovative features to be launched within the ecosystem which will later incorporate attractive benefits for developers, ICO teams, and entrepreneurs alike.

Token

The native token of the platform will be the MFX token. This is an ERC223 token and will be the main token on the platform although the entire principle of the ecosystem is to allow freedom and acceptance of multiple currencies. MFX will be the token which is rebated to both merchants and consumers in the rewards program. This will essentially increase the flow of the token throughout all of the platform processes over time.

There will be a total maximum supply of 521,000,000 MFX tokens with an initial circulating supply of 306,000,000. 57% of the total tokens will be made available during the ICO period. The rest of the tokens will be allocated as follows:

  • Merchant Incentive Program: 15%
  • Developers & Advisors : 8%
  • Airdrops: 1%

A final 19% of tokens will be locked for future developments. These will be released in two blocks at times to be confirmed during Q2 of 2019 and 2020 respectively.

Developer and Advisor tokens will be subject to vesting and periodically released for a period of 12 months following the ICO.

The ERC233 MFX tokens will be converted to MFF tokens upon the mainnet release which is currently scheduled to occur in Q3 of 2019.

Team

Craig Neil (CEO)

He describes himself as a serial entrepreneur and has indeed headed up a variety of projects both in the blockchain sector, and also in finance and advertising. Neil also possesses an extensive engineering background having spent almost 5 years as a full stack engineer at Lenders Direct Capital prior to focusing on his own business endeavors.

Jayson Rellis (President)

Rellis is an ICO investor and strategist with a number of significant roles in other projects, such as his partner position at Komorebi Alliance. Prior to his passion for the blockchain, he headed up regional operations at Verizon Wireless where he was employed for more than a decade. He is also a contributing writer for HackerNoon.

Brian Rankin (VP of Banking Integration)

He has interests as an advisor or director for a number of other projects including SigFig, although his most captivating experience noted within the blockchain sector comes from his time as VP for client services at Ripple where he oversaw a number of banking related developments.

Advisors

The project have a total of five advisors currently on board. These members are covering a number of areas including marketing, PR, and technical matters. Among these is prolific project advisor Bogdan Fiedur, a blockchain expert whose skills are widely employed and who features on the ICOBench list of experts.

Partners

Partnerships are a vital aspect within the MFChain project, given the amount of integration with payment processors and networks which is required. The latest partnership which they have struck is with Zagg Protocol. This is in addition to existing partnerships with:

  • ShapeShift
  • Komorebi Alliance
  • DDEX
  • Chosen Payments
  • Loopring
  • Identity Mind
  • EduHash

These key partnerships ensure a progressive path for the project with more to be developed as the project continues to progress.

Verdict

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

Risks

  • The strong competition both within and outside the blockchain which exists in a variety of the markets MFChain is targeting is concerning. These include the likes of Dash, UTrust, and Stack. (-0.5)
  • The broad focus of the project into a number of markets may cause them to lose focus and also leaves them vulnerable as a new project in a variety of areas. (-0.5)
  • MFChain’s core team, whilst having diverse experiences, have nothing which stands out as highly suited to running this type of proposed multi-million dollar platform, with the exception of their VPs experience at Ripple. (-1)
  • Full release of the core teams vested tokens will be completed by Q2 of 2019 according to the whitepaper, with full mainnet launch not scheduled until Q3 of 2019. (-2)

Growth Potential

  • The global payments market alone is heading towards a $1 trillion value. This represents a huge market with almost unlimited potential for growth. (+2)
  • Moving toward a blockchain based and cashless society, we would expect to see a big migration toward blockchain based ecosystems such as MFChain. (+2)
  • The broad focus of the project is also positive in the sense of flexibility and scalability. Two very important factors among blockchain based projects. (+2)
  • The project have maintained a strong and steady following throughout all media channels. This is indicative of the potential and positive sentiment which the community feels toward MFChain. (+3)

Disposition

MFChain has harnessed the fundamental principles of blockchain to provide an ecosystem which is both rewarding and flexible throughout. As the community strives to find ways to promote everyday use of cryptocurrencies, the introduction of a system which can perform all of its functions in a cross-platform manner, is an exciting prospect.

Although the project team still have a lot of major steps to complete in order to bring MFChain to market, premium among these being to establish more key partnerships, the market is large enough and increasing constantly in size for them to position themselves strongly within if they can continue the current momentum.

MFChain receives a 5/10.

ICO Analysis: VAEON

Published

on

“VAEON is a decentralized protocol that enables individuals to control their personal data and benefit from its value. It also gives companies the opportunity to build new business models in an ecosystem free of any middlemen.”

Based on EOS, VAEON provides an independent and open protocol with built-in-governance. Its a lot like a DAO, but the team calls it a DAC (Decentralized Autonomous Consortium). The protocol clearly defines how personal data is structured, exchanged, or sold.

“VAEON allows every user to securely combine their profiles, personal data, professional credentials, and networks of contacts into one standardized source they can protect, share, or monetize as they wish”

According to the whitepaper, after concluding that data is indeed valuable, and companies are collecting as much of it as they can, VAEON has determined there to be three major problems with big data:

  1. Much of our personal data is in the hands of a few big companies
  2. Data silos that lack formatting standards make data hard to reuse
  3. Centrally-stored data is vulnerable to hacks and data breaches.

VAEON solves these problems with their decentralized ecosystem that will have both Data Providing Apps and Data Requesting Apps. The apps interact directly with the smart contract and act as a gateway between businesses and user data.

There is no trusted central authority within the ecosystem. The DAC will vote in an entity called the Protocol Administrator, whose job is to evolve, maintain and adapt the protocol in the future. The administrator is continuously elected by the community.

The VAEON Ecosystem includes three important stakeholders:

  1. Users of web services.
  2. App development companies that provide web services.
  3. Businesses that buy user data.

We just scratched the surface; for more specifics check out the whitepaper.

Token

VAEO is the protocol token that aligns all the shareholders’ interests. It gives the user full control over his/her data.

VAEO serves three main functions: medium of exchange, governance, and fraud prevention.

Much of the value of this token is on the governance end. Since VAEON is a true DAC, if successful, million-dollar companies that use the protocol will need to fight for control in the company by using nothing more than votes. According to the company, “The voting power is calculated by a time based staking function that converges against a fixed value. ”

Allocation:

  • 41% Public sale
  • 20% Protocol development
  • 13% Marketing
  • 8% Partner relations
  • 10% Team
  • 8% Advisors

Use of Funds:

  • 37% Development
  • 15% Operaations and Administration
  • 45% Marketing and Sales
  • 3% Legal

Team

There are seven management team members listed, most of them are from Germany.

Andreas Mikolajewski – CEO. Six  months as DLT Researcher for IOTA Foundation. Six years as Software Developer for SAP.

Volker Rofalski – CFO. Has loads of experience and is on the board of several publicly traded companies; Mutares AG, Intercard AG, Demecon AG.

Pedro Isaac Lopez Lopez – COO. A young gun, blockchain expert. Interned for Deutsche Bank. Operations Maneger for one year at Tracktics GmbH.

Florian Gauger – CTO. Currently a Software Engineer at Google. More than three years spent as a Software Engineer for SAP.

Six Advisors, two of them are from Instaffo, a recruiting platform with 41 employees on LinkedIn. The others are a CEO of Demekon Group, a managing partner at Iconiqlab, the CEO at Iconiqlab, and an International Marketing Specialist.

They have a couple of key partnerships already with Instaffo and IconiqLab.

Iconiq Lab is a decentralized venture capital group with a portfolio of startups including Unibright, Topl, Vlux, and Solidified.

Verdict

So far, the giant Block.one billion-dollar EOS VC fund has invested in three projects; Everipedia, High Fedility (VR), and now VAEON. This is a huge endorsement and gives VAEON instant legitimacy.

Risks

  • This is an experiment, so there will be lots of trial and error. -1
  •  Their community is not very big at all yet. Telegram has only 180 members. 170 Twitter followers. -2
  • Surely there will be lots of competition coming. Basic Attention Token (BAT) comes to mind. -1
  • Personal data may not be worth all that much at this point in time. The whitepaper explains how they used several different strategies to calculate the value of personal data. It turns out each individuals data may only be worth like $30/year. If this is true, many users are not going to care enough to participate. -1.5

Growth Potential

  • Backed by EOS VC, the billion-dollar EOS fund. +3
  • The whitepaper is professional. The team is very intelligent, which can be seen in this podcast called “Everything EOS #26+2
  • The roadmap is long. In Q4 of 2019 they plan to release the first dApp by Instaffo (recruiting platform), which they say will bring 30 million user profiles to the VAEON Ecosystem. +2
  • Prototype looks solid. +2
  • More bold claims on the roadmap. Huge if true. +3

Disposition

“Imagine a world where users are in full control of their data. A world in which their data is securely stored in a decentralized manner, and only they can decide if they share and monetize their data, to whom they send it, and at what price. A world in which users can change from one service provider to another without losing their entire history, data, or digital identity in the process. This is where the VAEON Protocol comes in.”

This has tremendous long term potential, definitely one to keep an eye on. The current problem is that it is lacking in hype, and the team is just now getting started on community building. Only 180 Telegram members so far. 6.5/10
