ICO Analysis: COTI

Published

on

Supported by a native digital currency, Currency of the Internet (COTI) is a payments transaction network created to be used as an alternative to traditional payment systems like Visa, Mastercard, and PayPal. COTI is a currency and a payment platform designed to be simple, transparent, trustworthy, instant and scalable for global commerce. COTI is creating a scalable and blockless protocol (Trustchain Protocol) that can be utilized by any industry that has need of high throughput and trust to operate. Based on a directed acyclic graph (DAG) data structure, COTI’s distributed ledger will allow 10,000+ transactions per second.

COTI consists of an innovative trust mechanism, decentralized mediation system, multi-currency wallet (Fiat and Crypto) and native currency exchange. The driver of the COTI ecosystem will be the COTI token. COTI network users will have the following benefits: a robust Trust Scoring Engine, a decentralized Mediation System, full buyer-seller protections and low-to-zero fees.

Without compromising COTI’s commitment to scalability, instantaneity and low-to-zero fees, the DAG data structure will enable COTI network’s base layer protocol to achieve full decentralization. COTI will use an innovative DAG-based distributed ledger technology that will use Trust Scores as the key mechanism by which new, unconfirmed transactions select prior transactions to validate. The Cluster, which is COTI’s DAG-based distributed ledger technology, uses COTI’s Trust Chain Algorithm to reach faster consensus when confirming transactions. Scalability is achieved through the use of parallel source selection and transaction confirmations, as well as COTI’s Trust Scoring Mechanism. The Cluster will be able to eventually validate up to 10,000 transactions per second (TPS).

Free space will be set aside in COTI’s transaction bundles for future information layers to be stored. Companies will be able to use these layers to run information based on the cluster, deploy smart contracts, or transfer other currencies and datasets across the network.

The COTI Wallet

COTI users will be able to make instant, secure transfers to anyone who holds a COTI wallet. Transfers will be instant with low-to-zero fees. Using their COTI wallets, users can transfer funds from one currency to another by posting market or limit orders on COTI’s exchange. The currencies supported at the outset will include USD, EUR, GBP, and several leading digital currencies, including COTI tokens. Without having to withdraw their holdings from their COTI wallets, users will be able to pay/receive funds in whichever currencies they choose, regardless of their counterparties’ preferred currencies.

Debit Cards

To connect the COTI network with other payment rails, COTI users will be offered access to debit cards that link directly to their COTI wallets. The cards will allow payments from users’ COTI wallets even when dealing with companies that haven’t integrated with COTI. The card-linked currency, through use of COTI’s exchange, will automatically convert to the purchase currency which will mitigate third-party currency exchange fees.

COTI consumer benefits include:

  • Buyer-seller protections
  • Instant payments
  • Simple peer-to-peer (P2P) payments
  • Personal details aren’t given to merchants

COTI merchant benefits include:

  • Low-to-zero fees translate to higher profits
  • Increased cash flow due to instant settlements
  • Reduction in unnecessarily declined transactions (false positives)
  • Equitable chargeback mechanism
  • Micropayment processing
  • A secure and private payment network
  • Full KYC and AML regulation

Token

COTI tokens will initially be issued as ERC-20 tokens until the launch of the COTI main net, at which time the tokens will be converted to COTI native tokens on the COTI network transaction ledger. Consumers, merchants, mediators and node operators will use COTI tokens for all interactions. COTI tokens will serve as the common denominator of payments, fees, and mediation and incentivize node operators in the COTI network.

The ico price will be 1 COTI = $0.10 USD with a total supply of 2,000,000,000 COTI. 30% of tokens are available for purchase with a hard cap of $30,000,000 USD.

Token Distribution is as follows:

  • 30% Token Sale
  • 22% Reserve
  • 15% Team (Vested 2 years)
  • 10% Backers, Partners, Advisors (6 – 24 month lock-up)
  • 13% Incentive Program
  • 10% Liquidity

Team

The COTI team consists of over 30 members with experience and expertise in financial services, payments, software engineering and cryptography. A few members of the executive team include:

Shahaf Bar-Geffen – CEO

  • CoFounder & Director – Maple
  • Co-Founder & Director – Positive Mobile
  • Co-Founder & CEO – WEB3

David Assaraf – COO

  • Former Chief Internal Auditor – HSBC

Dr. Nir Haloani – CTO

  • Co-Founder & CTO – Articoolo Research
  • Former head of research of Real-Time Compression – IBM

Yair Lavi – CFO

  • Former CEO & Finance Director – Plus500

COTI also lists an impressive total of 17 advisors including Dr. Matt McBrady (CIO of BlackRock), Greg Kidd (CEO of globaliD, former CRO of Ripple Labs), and Theofanis Alexoudas, Ph.D. (Senior Advisor for McKinsey & Company, former Firmwide Market Risk for J.P. Morgan).

Verdict

Mass adoption is a major key to COTI’s success and by partnering with processing.com, the companyis on track to provide its payment services to individuals and merchants globally, with over 10,000 merchants in the process, ready to accept COTI as a valid form of payment. If implemented successfully, COTI could quickly become a major player in this space.

Risks

  • Although the idea, whitepaper, and team are impressive, the end product will ultimately decide the success or failure of this project and the alpha net launch (MVP) isn’t scheduled until Q3 2018. -1
  • There will be major competition such as Visa, MasterCard, PayPal as well as other blockchain players already within the cryptocurrency space. -1
  • Token metrics such as the hard cap, percentage of tokens available during the token sale, team tokens, etc. are important to ICO investors. Overall, the COTI token metrics receive a thumbs up. However, the $30 million USD hard cap is slightly on the high side in today’s market. -0.5

Growth Potential

  • ICOs with partnerships tend to do well in the current market. COTI has aggressively focused on and developed strategic partnerships with companies such as Bancor, Processing.com, Stox, Wings, Transact Europe, GlobaliD and WEB3. +3
  • Not only is COTI providing a means of digital currency for payments, it is also providing a native wallet and a native currency exchange which will make transactions easier and simpler by providing these products/services together. +2.25
  • Although facing fierce competition with other online payment companies, COTI has tremendous potential if able to attain only a small fraction of this massive and growing industry. +2.75
  • Fair or not, speculation and hype play a major part in today’s ICO market. COTI has implemented an excellent marketing strategy encouraging community involvement and building hype with currently over 18,000 followers on Twitter and over 40,000 members on Telegram. +2

Disposition

Aiming to be the “Visa” of blockchain, the vision and ambitions of COTI are lofty and bold, to say the least. However, if successful, COTI could be another breakout ico of 2018. COTI receives a rating of 7.5/10.

ICO

ICO Analysis: Zeex

Published

on

Zeex is offering users the ability to exclusively use crypto when shopping at various outlets. Users will be able to directly purchase whatever items thy want from their brands of choice without having to convert their crypto into fiat.

The following video shows Zeex in action outside of the Consensus conference at a Starbucks, where the CMO Apan Amos Damri uses their beta version to buy a cup of coffee using Ethereum. The transaction was successful, but the verdict is still out on whether they were able to spell his name correctly on the cup.

The ZIX token is what the whitepaper calls a “core element” of the solution, which does three things. It covers a user’s transactional risk until the trade is complete, it determines who can exercise what kinds of transactions when based on advertised discount rates and supplies, and it’s also a login method to use the Zeex platform.

To the surprise of probably very few people reading this, Zeex is a spinoff sister company of a European marketplace for buying and selling gift cards called Zeek Group. For Zeex, the road is already paved in terms of getting access to close relationships with name-brand retailers and a multi-million dollar inventory of gift cards.

Zeek has been able to raise venture capital from firms such as Blumberg Capital, Qualcomm Ventures, Scale Up Venture Capital and more.

The Zeex business model hinges on a few potential incomes streams:

  • Providing working capital to gift card suppliers, easing the transition for many businesses hesitant to get into the crypto field.
  • Financial services to support suppliers financially.
  • Marketing services to help suppliers speak the lingo of the cryptocurrency world. The whitepaper states that “Zeex has already mastered these industry-specific marketing channels and has been engaged in community building for a significant period, its in-house marketing team is already equipped to help suppliers build their own communities and maximize their value per transaction.”
  • Platform adoption and market penetration to help suppliers integrate crypto into their business makeup
  • Operations support to help suppliers and users better understand and utilize the platform.
  • Provide business intelligence data to retailers on cryptocurrency users.

Token

 

Risks

  • Not an entirely frictionless experience: This isn’t a problem unique to just Zeex, but is present throughout most digital payment solutions. Unless you can tap your phone on a receiver like Apple Pay, you’ll be behind the most “frictionless” payment system out there. However, this is miles ahead of crypto transactions. -1
  • Not really sold on the need for an ICO (for the investor’s sake): Although the Zeex platform sounds pretty useful, investor upside seems fairly limited (but then again, who can accurately predict investor upside in this space circa 2017/2018.  -2

Growth Potential

  • It works! Few projects raising money via ICO can boast a working beta, and Zeex already does and has a use case that many cryptocurrency users would likely want. +2
  • Yay user adoption! One of the largest detractors of the transactional user of cryptocurrencies is that it’s incredibly complicated and tedious. If you have 8+ steps before you can pay for a coffee, chances are you’re going to opt for that .25 second swipe of a Visa in your pocket. +2
  • Finally, a use for gift cards. When’s the last time you got a gift card that wasn’t from Amazon that you actually fully used? Too many people have gift cards just sitting around either untouched or with a fractional amount on them. There is a whole secondary market for discounted gift cards, and there’s a huge value in using these gift cards in a business model such as Zeex’s. The team essentially has a pool of gift cards going for a discounted price (usually around the 5 to 15% range), and are able to provide a solution to a community in dire need of one. +1
  • Zeek partnership. Having a sister company that already has the relationships with retailers necessary puts Zeex way ahead of the game. It’s not your typical run of the mill ICO that aims to build everything from ground zero for a lack of strategic partnerships, but more so a use case to be implemented with an already successful company. +3
  • Limited downside: Zeex claims that it will safeguard token value by using proceeds of the often sale to guarantee the supply of gift cards at the highest possible discount from a wide range of brands. If this means what I think it means, that worst case scenario you can use Zeex tickets to exchange them for gift cards at any time, and if there isn’t a stark depreciation of purchasing power for Zeex tokens, this is a cool perk few other ICOs can offer. However, if I’m wrong, write this point off as whitepaper tomfoolery. +2

Unknown

  1. This sounds like either a huge tax headache or a huge tax advantage. If the current American tax law stands that the exchange of crypto for fiat (or gift card) constitutes a taxable event, the Zeex team would have to figure out a way to help users report their taxes on these events. If this is the case, a -2 would be added to my score. However, if there is some international gift card loophole where users can trade any crypto for gift cards and there not be a taxable event, that would be huge for the team (although unlikely, because Uncle Sam is gonna get what he thinks is his). If this is the case, a +5 added to my score.

Disposition

We arrive at a +7/10 for Zeex. It’s got a cool use case, already works (in beta), and a relatively strong partnership in place. If the appreciation of the token’s value is correlated with the success of the app, investors would likely be pretty happy. However, if it’s just another token limited to its own ecosystem, I don’t see much use in investing into it unless you plan on using the Zeex app.

ICO Analysis: Tolar HashNET

Published

on

No one can deny that blockchain technology is revolutionizing many industries across the globe. However, blockchain still has shortcomings such as slow transaction times, scalability issues and high environmental cost. Transaction times can take up to several hours versus traditional payments like credit cards or bank cards only take mere seconds. For mass adoption to take place, there has to be faster transaction times along with the ability to scale and maintain these times. And there are those who are concerned with the effects on the environment from all of the mining globally. The founders of Tolar HashNet decided to create solutions to solve these issues while maintaining all of the advantages of blockchain technology.

Tolar was inspired by hashgraph methodology and designed a new and efficient asynchronous distributed consensus protocol on a directed acyclic network structure. Tolar HashNet uses redundancy reduced gossip and virtual voting protocols that provide a fast, fair, and Byzantine fault tolerant consensus algorithm. HashNet belongs to a class of gossip-based protocols instead of structured-based group communication algorithms giving it advantages such as being able to handle larger group sizes, high user churns, sporadic sources, etc.

Tolar HashNet is fast, secure and scalable – solving the major shortcomings while keeping all of the positive characteristics of blockchain technology, and has an open-sourced cryptocurrency called Tolar. HashNet has increased throughput to more than 200,000 transactions per second and has a working demo with 150,000 tps on multiple nodes. HashNet uses Proof of Stake with masternodes eliminating the need for mining which greatly reduces energy consumption making it more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. The founder’s vision is to be the global leader in Distributed Ledger Technology and become the preferred choice of individuals, companies, and governments worldwide.

Token

The Tolar (TOL) token is an open source, community-governed cryptocurrency. It will initially be deployed as an ERC20 token that will later be converted to mainnet tokens when the mainnet is released. The price of TOL is 1 ETH = 5,442.59 TOL for the public ICO. A total of 1 billion tokens will be generated with a hard cap of 57,000 ETH.

Token Allocation:

  • 35%  Token Sales
  • 32%  Tolar Development Fund
  • 8%   Proof of Stake Network Start Nodes
  • 20%  Founders
  • 2.5% Developers
  • 2.5% Advisors

There is no lock on main tokens, but a THREE-month lockup for bonus tokens and a 24-month lockup for team tokens. The max bonus was 20%.

Team

The founders have 30 years of business experience and are definitely not new to the blockchain technology space having developed the world’s first Blockchain MBA Program and Certified Blockchain Developer Program at COTRUGLI Business School, a leading business school in SE Europe. Twenty-four team members and 13 advisors are listed on their website including:

Drazen Kapusta – Principal/Founder at Tolar

  • 30 years of business experience as well as a major blockchain startup investor
  • Principal of COTRUGLI Business School
  • President of Blockchain Adria, the largest blockchain conference and association in the Adria region
  • Member of Enterprise Ethereum Alliance
  • President of the COTRUGLI Fund – organizes and leads major humanitarian projects
  • Founder of the COTRUGLI Business Museum

Zoran Dordevic – CEO at Tolar

  • Managing partner at COTRUGLI Business School

Josip Maricevic – Co-Founder and CTO at Tolar

  • Previous Blockchain core developer for Blocknet
  • Previous iOS Developer for Qnective AG

Terence Tse, Ph.D. – Foundation Member at Tolar

  • Associate Professor of Finance at ESCP Europe Business School
  • AI Company Founder & Entrepreneur
  • Keynote Speaker
  • Author

Lester Lim – Advisor

  • ICO Marketing & Token Strategy Advisor for Cardstack, HybridBlock, Dock.io, Ink Protocol, CoinFi and Banca

Verdict

Tolar HashNet is positioning itself to compete with the likes of Etherium and Neo as a platform for building ICOs and Hyperledger to offer superior DLT solutions for governments, towns, local communities and enterprises. With several VC investors on board and multiple crypto influencers recently promoting/reviewing Tolar, this ICO is definitely worth looking into.

Risks

  • Competition is fierce in this space with major players such as Ethereum, Neo, Icon, etc. -1.5
  • Partnerships will be crucial to the success of the project and none have been announced as of yet. -1

Growth Potential

  • While some ICO investors look to flip their investment immediately and move on the to next one, Tolar’s proof of stake with masternodes is attractive to long-term investors. +2
  • The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) will be deployed on top of the network which will make for a fast and secure decentralized applications platform. +2.25
  • An ICO with an MVP is certainly more desirable than an ICO with nothing but a website and an idea. The Tolar Prototype reached 150,000 TPS on multiple nodes. You can view the video here+2.75
  • Tolar won Ian Balina’s ICO pitch competition during his Crypto World Tour in Budapest. This will obviously create hype and draw more attention to the project which typically translates to positive outcomes in the current ico market. Many Tolar ICO reviews have also been recently published. +3

Disposition

With a fairly large team, all-star advisors, an MVP, available masternodes, and a growing social media presence, Tolar is another blockchain project that has an excellent chance of doing well this year. Tolar receives a 7.5 out of 10 rating.

Investment Details

  • Symbol: TOL
  • Platform: Ethereum
  • Hard Cap: 57,000 ETH
  • Total Supply: 1,000,000,000 TOL
  • Private Sale Price: 1 ETH = 6,531.08 TOL
  • Pre-sale Price: 1 ETH = 5,986.84 TOL (minimum 10 ETH)
  • Public ICO Price: 1 ETH = 5,442.59 TOL
  • Public Sale: Scheduled for August
  • Jurisdictions barred from participation: USA, China

ICO Analysis: SpringRole

Published

on

SpringRole is a blockchain-powered professional profile attestation and verification platform.

In other words, you can think of it as Linkedin on the blockchain.

Currently, there are a lot of problems with people making things up on their resume. According to the SpringRole whitepaper, approximately 53% of resumes contain some degree of inaccuracy.

This leads to a lot of inefficiency in verifying someone’s professional background with things like reference checks and attestations (e.g. a university attesting that someone’s educational credentials are legitimate) often being expensive and slow.

SpringRole, therefore, aims to leverage blockchain technology in order to provide a platform where people can view, share, and acquire attestations related to education, work experience, and skills.

Once information about an individual is verified, it will be written to the blockchain, making verified information publicly viewable and unchangeable. This means that once claims about one’s resume are verified, they no longer have to be re-verified in the future, saving people time and money.

There are several types of attestors on the SpringRole platform:

  1. Individuals – individuals can attest to the skills of other individuals (e.g. good at Python, public speaking). Select individuals, such as professors, can attest to things like students’ projects
  2. Companies – companies attest to employees’ work experience and other information related to their job tenure, such as title
  3. Universities – universities attest to individuals’ educational backgrounds like whether someone actually studied at the university and what degree(s) he or she obtained. Other relevant information like specific courses can be attested to
  4. Course Providers – Course providers like MOOC platforms (Coursera, etc.) can attest that someone has completed a course on their platform
  5. Examination Providers – Examination providers like College Board (SAT) and Educational Testing Services (GRE) can attest to individuals’ results on their exams

Token

The Spring network will be powered by the SPRING token.

SPRING can be obtained in the following ways:

  1. Referring others to the platform (referred individual needs to complete their profile and receive a certain number of endorsements)
  2. Refer a company (the company needs to complete a transaction)
  3. Get rewarded for endorsing or validating someone (e.g. attesting to someone’s skill in something, a university attesting someone’s degree, a company attesting someone’s work experience)
  4. Completing your profile and receiving attestations – a fraction of the token(s) goes to the attestor based on their reputation on the platform
  5. Mediate a freelancing project

SPRING can be used for endorsing or attesting to someone’s skill(s) as well as getting access to attested resumes.

There will be a total of 10 billion SPRING tokens and the token distribution will be as follows.

  • 25.5% token sale
  • 30% market development
  • 25% team and founders
  • 10% contributors and advisors
  • 9.5% foundation

Market development tokens vested over 4 years (20% on launch, 20% after 1 year, and the rest every month for 3 years).

Team and founder tokens are vested over 4 years (20% on launch, 20% after 1 year, 60% vested every month for 3 years).

Advisor tokens are vested over 2 years (50% on launch, 50% distributed every month for 2 years).

Foundation tokens are locked for 2 years.

The public presale is ongoing and has a minimum contribution of 2 ETH, maximum contribution of 500 ETH, and bonus of 40%. Price is 1 SPRING = .00002 ETH.

Public sale is TBA.

Of the token sale proceeds, 40% will go towards market development, 45% towards adoption (developer ecosystem, incubator fund, PR and partnerships), 5% towards administration, 5% towards legal expenses, and 5% towards miscellaneous.

Team

Founder and CEO Kartik Mandaville was CTO and Special Technical Advisor for Science Inc., a startup studio known for being an early investor in startups like Dollar Shave Club (acquired by Unilever for $1B) and HelloSociety (acquired by The New York Times). He was also a Technical Advisor for Science Blockchain, Science’s blockchain startup incubator. He also served as CTO of LetMeKnow.com, an online portal for Indian college students seeking internships, scholarships, and more.

Vice President of Business Development and Strategy David Lewis is an online business veteran. He started as a product manager for Software Technologies Corp, which was acquired by Sun Microsystems for nearly $400 million. He was the Director of Business Development for Overture Services, the first paid search engine that later ended up being sold to Yahoo for $1.6 billion. He was the Founder and CEO of 77Blue, which owned coupon and cash back websites AnyCoupons and Cashbaq. 77Blue was acquired by Ebates, which was later acquired by Rakuten for $1 billion. Lewis also served as Director of Business Development for Shopzilla, which at its peak was a $200 million+ revenue comparison shopping site. Having such an experienced business development expert will be of great help to SpringRole.

Advisors

Advisors include the following:

  • Mike Jones – Mike Jones is CEO of Science, Inc. and has tons of experience not just as CEO of Science Inc. but as Senior Vice President at AOL, CEO at Myspace, and investor in companies like Goodreads among others.
  • Toni Lane – Toni Lane is a known name in the blockchain space and among other accomplishments, is the Co-Founder of CoinTelegraph, which also runs properties like Coinmarketcap, and was advisor to companies like Tether and Mycelium.

Verdict

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

Risks

  • No information on presale lockups or vesting – combined with relatively large contribution limits, a bit worrisome. (-0.5)
  • In terms of platform growth, who would pay to endorse someone’s skills or validate one’s credentials? Perhaps this would be of great use to employers and HR departments but adoption looks like it would be tough for regular users. Though it looks like a large portion of SpringRole funds is going towards adoption and market development. (-0.5)
  • Granted it’s still presale, but hype is a bit weak. (-0.5)

Growth Potential

  • Has a beta, which is promising from an implementation perspective. (+3.5)
  • Good team and advisors. (+3.5)

Disposition

Though SpringRole has a relatively strong team and advisory board as well as a beta, lack of current hype and questions about the platform’s long-term viability don’t make it a clear winner for now. However, it could be something to keep an eye on if interest starts to grow. SpringRole receives a 5.5/10.
