ICO ICO Analysis: Creativechain Published 1 year ago on April 15, 2017 By P. H. Madore The Money Makers Club now has 6 of 15 available seats. Learn more here! Blockchain 2.0 – using the blockchain for purposes other than simply register the movement of funds. The purpose of Creativechain is to allow digital creative works to be registered one time and become indelible – permanently the property of their creator or owner, in a provable way. From a financial standpoint, there are several possible utilities here, chief among them allowing creators to get paid regardless of who or where their content appears. The recent irruption of blockchain technology gives many possibilities for the registration and distribution of intellectual property without intermediaries. Creativechain’s whitepaper correctly identifies that traditional media industries have not managed to harness the power of the decentralized internet. While they have managed to profit from things like Spotify, the sale of MP3 albums and e-books, they have failed to automate this and still rely on law enforcement to ensure their properties are not pirated. Creativechain proposes to make a step toward ending this state of affairs. Creators would be able to register their work once on Creativechain, and then those who would like to enjoy the work or use it in other commercial applications can simply license it from the creator directly, in an automated way. If you’re a publication looking for some content, you could license a few articles through Creativechain, and a marketplace of competing authors could serve your need. It doesn’t always work like this in creative pursuits, of course, but the point is that a more equitable situation for creators is possible through the blockchain. Creativechain incorporates all the advantages derived from the innovation of crypto coins. In this way, without the need to use bank accounts, purchases, micropayments or donations can be made to the authors of the registered contents. Creativechain will be paired with Creativecoin (CREA). These are the token of exchange on Creativechain. They will obviously be exchangeable for Bitcoin when altcoin exchanges list them. The platform also aims to make the creation of decentralized applications easier for developers, so that platforms can be built on top of it in order to make the acquisition and distribution of content easier. Creativechain is a Scrypt-based Proof-of-Work network, meaning that people will be able to obtain CREA by mining, and miner rewards will be enhanced with the registration fee that all creative works will pay (.001 flat fee.) This fee is interesting because it means that all participants in the network will have incentive to see the network grow and prosper – miners will want more people using Creativechain so that more registrations are made; users will want more users so as to potentially make the value of their CREA and subsequently their works rise. The approach is novel and differs from Factom in that it 1) uses its own blockchain, rather than attaching data to the Bitcoin blockchain and 2) calls for the creation of a market. Combined with the ability to trade the token, therefore adding another element to the system: you, the speculator. All elements play vital roles, as in all markets. Lastly, Creativechain will make it easy for people to utilize smart contracts. Think subscription fees. Without the middlemen of Paypal and the banking cartel, subscription fees can be more affordable. All types of digital content providers can benefit from something like this: “we got rid of our advertisements, can you pay a couple CREA a day for automatically-enabled access?” The platform also has a concept called “Smart Actions,” which means that creators will be able to sell access to their content using a variety of methods. Presumably, for instance, a creator could sell the rights to something for non-cryptocurrency, and then issue a license to the lessee themselves. The overwhelming theme seems to be to enable the legitimate owners of content, rather than the publishing and recording powerhouses of old. Who It Is Creativechain is the brain child of graphic/web design veteran David Proto. Proto has been working around that industry since 2007, and he founded Comando Suricato, his current firm, in May of 2013. Since then he has worked for a few blockchain-related firms in graphic/web design categories. It is evident that he himself would benefit from a successful launch of Creativechain, given that he creates visually interesting and high quality artwork on a regular basis. In a recent interview, Proto said: Creativechain is a platform with a clear roadmap whose goal is to be a free software tool of reference in the multimedia ecosystem of the new era blockchain. Throughout this year, we hope to see the use of the platform in the main audiovisual media (photography, video and music). Once Creativechain platform is consolidated, we will open new platforms connected to the blockchain of Creativechain. They will be specialized in the distribution of software, ebooks, blogs, newspapers and other means of cultural distribution. Next on the founders list is Anna Nos Ripolles. She is also a co-founder of Comando Suricato, and has acted as an art director at a few organizations over the past few years. Her role or importance is relatively unclear, but presumably as an artist she plays a direct role in the look and feel of the Creativechain product. Web searching her LinkedIn username reveals a bit more of her career, from before her listing on the site. For instance we find here that she is a highly competent desktop publisher. That she and David are both artists lends some credibility to the platform’s intentions – it’s always best to try and solve one’s own problems first. Last on the founders list is Vicent Nos Ripolles. Vicent appears to be the technological brain of the founder team, having worked in IT consulting as well as having previously funded and founded a co-working space called the Entropy Factory. He lists PHP, payment gateways, and electronic payments as his skills. Unlike other projects we have reviewed here, the team includes mostly developers. That’s what you want to see when dealing with a technology product: more developers and actually useful workers than anything. The product doesn’t reach market at the behest of the “social media manager” after all. Making up the rest of the team we have 4 developers, 1 system administrator, and 1 strategic communication guy. This last guy likely plays the very difficult/important role of reaching out to content makers like Hacked.com and attempting to get them to use the platform. The Verdict The author will be eating his own dog food on this one, and entering the crowdsale personally. This does not automatically earn this crowdsale a 10 on a scale of 1-10. The merits of this project, and the need of it, are known very well to the author. So as not to pollute the rating, let’s look at some of the negatives of this project before delivering the verdict. The role of Creativechain could be played by a competent Counterparty or Ethereum project, eliminating its novelty. On the same note, Factom could simply expand to do everything Creativechain intends to do. It certainly wouldn’t fall outside of their mission of “making the world’s systems honest.” Creativechain uses a Scrypt proof-of-work mining algorithm. While this is good for miners, it has to stay good for miners in order to avoid difficulty surges and valleys. Many altcoins experience periods where, right after a large mining outfit disconnects from the network, no one remaining has the hash power to mine another block for hours until the difficulty drops. One hopes Creativechain will be aware of this hazard and implement smarter difficulty adjustment alogrithms as a result, since accessibility of the content and payment rails is of the utmost importance. Too much of the communications seem to be based in Spanish language. Nothing against Spanish speakers, but the language of money in our current times is most definitely English. If Comando Suricato is entirely serious about their project, they will hopefully contract with communications people in English-speaking countries to more clearly communicate their message to the money centers. The whitepaper itself is clearly not written by a native English speaker, but this should only become a problem if competing projects reach fruition before Creativechain has a chance to mature. These things notwithstanding, we’re going with a 7.3 on this one. Like all altcoins, it has the potential to tank in value, but the utility would still be there. This tank in value would affect you mainly if you entered in at the crowdsale level, otherwise it would be a benefit for you. So you may just want to wait until it gets listed on exchanges, and catch it on a downward movement, if you believe you’ll have a use for the coin. As far as pure speculation goes, you’ll want to limit your investment here pending the future, but active trading, rather than passive holding, could net you a tidy profit once the thing goes live. Investment Details Just under 8 million CREA are available for another couple of weeks (roughly). Unlike most ICOs, you can buy CREA with a bank account. That they are making their identities known to the banking cartel is a major plus in terms of safety, since no sane scammer would do as much. You can, of course, also use Bitcoin. If you enter the crowdsale via Bitcoin, make sure you have control of the wallet you use – do not use Coinbase or some other Bitcoin bank, because in the event that the ICO does not take off, your refund will be sent to the address you sent from (minus 2%). Once you’ve made your investment, you can claim your CREA on May 1st. The wallet is already available for testing: You can’t buy a specific amount of CREA in the Crowdsale. The way they are doing it, the 7,947,316 CREA that are being sold will be distributed amongst the investors by how much they invested. So if 100 people invested and you invested 20% of the group’s sum investment, you would get 1,589,463.20 CREA. Currently around 70 people have invested roughly a little over $10,000 in bitcoins. Bank investments are obviously not public in the same way. This makes the current value of each CREA about 70 satoshis. Featured image from Shutterstock.

ICO ICO Analysis: Bounty Angels Published 1 day ago on July 17, 2018 By Gerelyn Terzo The Money Makers Club now has 6 of 15 available seats. Learn more here! ICO bounty programs are popular among investors and blockchain startups alike. They give opportunistic cryptocurrency investors a way to earn tokens for promoting a project and they give companies a way to market their project. Bounty Angels is looking to automate the process, matching who the company describes as “blockchain entrepreneurs,” or bounty hunters, with ICO founders. Bounty programs are marketing campaigns launched by companies in which bounty hunters can earn tokens for touting the upcoming ICO. It solves a problem for a new startup that might not have the marketing muscle or the capital to gain the global exposure they need for a successful launch. Bounty hunters, however, face many hurdles in identifying relevant projects to promote, in some cases being overlooked for a lack of a track record, for instance. ICO founders also face challenges, including engaging with bounty hunters who break the rules. Bounty Angels is offering a solution, one that automates and streamlines the bounty process for both sides. Bounty hunters generate a performance history and that data is then shared with ICO founders on the Bounty Angels platform. For the bounty hunters, they won’t have to worry about engaging with a worthless or scam project, as Bounty Angels vets all of the ICOs that are on its platform. There is an alpha version of the platform available today, according to the company’s blog, though when we clicked on the link it appeared to be down for maintenance. Artificial intelligence appears to be part of the long-term plan, as evidenced by the white paper that states: “Automated technologies when coupled with the expertise of professionals and, going forward, artificial intelligence, will allow [us] to create an all-new image of Bounty programs.” The team admits it is an ambitious goal, one that involves “launching our service around the world … to attract the highest possible number of customers and Bounty Hunters.” The project is powered by the BANG token, which bounty hunters have the option to accept as a reward for their marketing efforts. Bounty hunters can also choose to accept free tokens from the project they’re promoting. Token The Bounty Angels BANG token will be issued in the ICO. BANG is designed to fuel the project’s ecosystem including payment to bounty hunters and can also be exchanged among token holders. The company maintains that the BANG token cannot be deemed a security or any other financial instrument. Source: Bounty Angels There is also a bonus program. Source: Bounty Angels White Paper Team Anatoly Krasovsky is at the helm of Bounty Angels. He’s also a project manager at NEWSBTC, according to his LinkedIn profile. The company’s CTO, Andrew Tar, is also a journalist. Verdict The Bounty Angels ICO has the potential to catch on like wildfire among ICO investors. It’s an engine to connect bounty hunters with the best blockchain projects that are looking for marketing. While the project displays tremendous promise, it doesn’t appear to have advanced enough from the concept stage, as evidenced by its dependence on the ICO funds to both develop the platform and hire developer talent. Once these pillars are in place, there could be no stopping Bounty Angels. Risks The company is still hiring developer talent for the creation of “complex smart content that will make it possible to automate distributions.” The fact that the developer talent is not yet in-house exacerbates the risk for investors as it could lead to delays in the building out of the ecosystem until the team is a well-oiled machine. Not to mention if the fundraising efforts fall short and prevent them from hiring top talent. (-3) There doesn’t appear to be a mention of mobile anywhere in the white paper. While this doesn’t necessarily mean that an iOS and Android app isn’t on the horizon, it may be far down the roadmap if it didn’t warrant a mention. (-1) Bounty Angels is not the only rodeo. They allude to a competing project, Bounty0x. (-1) Growth Opportunity Research suggests that there’s a direct link between bounty programs and ICO tallies. The larger the bounty campaign, the higher the amount that the ICO ultimately raises, suggesting that the engagement of bounty hunters pays off. According to Element Group, which performed the research, “[A] $1 increase in bounty campaign volume predicts between an $8 and $15 increase in the final amount raised.” This should incentivize ICO founders to participate in bounty programs and potentially join the Bounty Angels platform. (+3) Artificial intelligence is a key technology that could propel the platform beyond the competition, especially if said competition isn’t automating their process yet. While it’s unclear when AI would be implemented, it does appear to be on the roadmap. (+3) According to the website, Bounty Angels has received a good amount of media attention, which may have something to do with the fact that its management team doubles as journalists. This is a plus for the project and its upcoming ICO. Also, if the adage ‘you get what you pay for is true,’ that’s a plus for Bounty Angels as it’s a paid platform. (+2.5) What the company describes as “intensive work” on the project hasn’t even begun yet. While we could view this as a risk or reward, we decided to count it as a plus, as it explains why so much has yet to be done. It also reminds us that Bounty Angels has yet to reach its full potential of where the project can be when it is in full-throttle. The beta version is scheduled for January 2019. (+3) Disposition We come to a score of 6.5 for the Bounty Angels ICO. Keep in mind we will plan to revisit this project once it kicks into high gear.

Learn more here! 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 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. Investment Details Type: ERC20 – Utility Symbol: ZIX Platform: Ethereum Crowdsale: TBA Minimum Investment: 0.1 ETH Price:1 ETH = 5,000 ZIX Hard Cap: $50 million U.S. Payments Accepted: ETH Barred from Participating: Israel, U.S., China, Lebanon, Iran.

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.
