ICO Analysis: DAOstack

Published

on

Despite the hype, there are not many fully functional decentralized applications yet. Developers are finding it extremely challenging to create the DAO framework needed to run all aspects of the DAPP. They don’t yet have all the tools necessary to organize the specifics of governance into smart contracts.

A DAO, or Decentralized Autonomous Organization, is a network of peers that encode their protocols into the blockchain, and make collaborative decisions by voting through smart contracts.

The team at DAOstack is developing the tools and infrastructure needed to become the “sandbox” for all DAOs to operate from.

DAOstack will be a platform from which DAOs can build and create their own token on. The technology is very detailed and complicated. Josh Zemel (communication guy) did an excellent job of simplifying the stack here.

ARC: The base layer of the stack, is a library of smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain, each of which represents functional elements that can be mixed, matched and modified to create the complete governance protocol for any given DAO

The ArcHives: a set of shared registries designed to enhance interoperability among the DAOs and Dapps. Any new tool, all offers and requests, and any new DAO will all have their own registry.

Arc.js: a JavaScript library that allows devs to easily build apps on top of Arc without being familiar with Solidity or the blockchain. With Arc.js, any organization or industry has the option of creating a custom interface suitable for its own use cases. DAOstack envisions ultimately hundreds or thousands of such Dapps deployed on Arc.js.

Dapps Layer: This is where organization members will interact with the DAO through the Dapps.

Alchemy: The first App on the stack. It will be a tool to help DAOs budget and allocate resources. With Alchemy, anyone will be able to create a DAO in a few clicks and create an ERC20 crypto-token if desired. There’s also a prediction market function, that will help organizations prioritize important proposals. The future roadmap for Alchemy includes greater customizability, integration with other popular collaboration tools, mobile support, and bounty systems.

Holographic Consensus: A process where small groups can make decisions on behalf of the larger majority, in an incorrupt way. To avoid plutocracy in the DAOstack, the process will separate token ownership and voting power into two different currencies.

  • The token-a transferable token that is a form of monetary wealth, called GEN.
  • Voting power — it refers to as reputation. Reputation cannot be directly transferred from peer to peer, but rather is distributed by the passing of proposals, or by the adoption of protocols that result in reputation being transferred automatically. For example, there might be a protocol through which reputation is distributed for positively reviewed work.

Genesis DAO:  The first DAO created using the DAOstack. Its mission will be to advance the DAOstack project and ecosystem, and it will be investing in proposals, such as; a) The further build out of components of the DAO stack, including Arc and Arc.js. b) Support for/investments in collaborative applications (dApps) to be integrated into the DAO stack. c) Support for/investments in organizations built on the DAO stack.

Anyone can create proposals or stake GEN for or against the boosting of proposals. However, in order to be able to vote on proposals, some reputation within the Genesis DAO will be required.

“Eventually, the Genesis DAO will be responsible for allocating the majority of the funds expected to be generated by the GEN token sale. Funds will be transferred to the DAO gradually over time as it demonstrates increasing stability and security. The Genesis DAO will also eventually hold the ability to mint additional GEN tokens after the initial sale.”

Token

GEN is the native token of the DAOstack platform. Its main use is to vote on or promote proposals within the ecosystem. It will be distributed to contributors of value through the DAOstack framework itself, incentivizing development, promotion and adoption.

Paying for votes would be a plutocracy; therefore, you can’t buy voting power with GEN and you cant vote with it either. You can participate in a prediction market like system, where you stake for or against a proposal that influences whether or not it rises into the collective attention of the voters, the reputation holders. If you stake for proposals that the reputation holders pass, you get rewarded with more GEN. If you stake for a proposal that fails, you lose your GEN. And vice versa if you stake against proposals.

Other uses for GEN will come to fruition in the future as the stack evolves. GEN will be the primary currency for the build-out of the DAOstack ecosystem itself, with contributors to the platform rewarded in GEN, and investments into projects that are built on the stack tendered in GEN , according to the collective will of the Genesis DAO.

Below are the project vitals:

  • Total Supply: 60 million
  • Hard Cap: $30 million
  • Presale: 10% bonus May 1, 2018, at 4:00 am GMT
  • Public Sale: May 8, 2018, at 4:00 a.m. GMT https://daostack.io/

The distribution is as follows:

  • 40% crowdsale
  • 40% mintable in the future
  • 10% team/advisers

In terms of allocation, 33% ($10 million) will go to development, 68% goes to Genesis DAO, a decentralized fund in which anyone can create proposals, according to its governance protocol. Funds will be transferred to the Genesis DAO by the DAOstack non-profit gradually as it demonstrates stability and security. The Genesis DAO will serve to advance the DAOstack project and ecosystem and will be investing primarily in proposals related to:

  1. the extension of the components of the DAO stack
  2. collaborative applications (Dapps) and interfaces that will integrate with the DAO stack
  3. support for/investments in organizations built on the DAO stack

Team

After studying each of the 15 available team members’ LinkedIn accounts, they receive a better than average rank but nothing terrific. Here are a few highlights.

CEO Matan Field has a  PhD in physics and is leading expert in decentralized governance. He has given numerous interviews and two TED talks. You can listen to his most recent AMA here.

CTO Adam Levi has a  PhD in physics, as well as 22 years of programming experience. He was a teacher’s assistant at Technion, Israel Institute of Technology from 2013-2017.

In terms of marketing and communications, Josh Zemel is the guy. He designed and executed major growth initiatives for Equifax, Blue Cross Blue Shield and Toyota. He was also a VP at IMM, a digital agency.

COO Yehonatan Goldman’s profile is below:

 

Verdict

There is quite a bit of hype around this project. Their telegram is over 10,00 people deep, due to a “refer a friend” promotion they are running that pays GEM for referrals.

DAOs could be huge in the future as the use cases are endless. Dapps using DAOstack to run their own token sale on, as well as develop their voting protocols and infrastructure, is a beautiful idea.

Risks

    • This team is trying to build things that have never been built before. It seems like they may lack the talent to do this at the moment. However, there is much evidence of them putting in work. Arc and Arc.js are fully built. Check out a video of their alchemy demo here-1
    • The CEO, Matan Field, founded a project called Backfeed, in 2015. Backfeed was a similar concect to DAOstack (only without the token and tech), but it failed in early 2016. When asked about this, Mr. Field explained that he had taken too much on himself as at some point he was effectively the CEO, CTO, chief scientist and chief product. Besides, in his words, the project lacked focus overall. -1
    • Matan Field (CEO) and Oren Sokolowsky (lead dev) built an app back in 2014 called La-zooz. The app was a failure. Strangely, The La-zooz website tried to do a token sale in January, 2017. When I asked the Telegram mods about this, they explained that the La-zooz website was hijacked, and they have no control over it anymore. They linked me this article  https://medium.com/daostack/daostack-and-previous-projects-3ba3c0b69fd1  as well as an April 5th lazooz tweet. Seems legit, however sloppy of them to let their website get hijacked. -1

Growth Potential

  • The platform will include a friendly JavaScript developer environment, a modular smart contract framework and an intuitive user interface that even non-tech people can use. +1
  • The potential of DAOs are limitless. It could be that, within a few years, DAOs are everywhere. Thousands of DAOs could be on this platform. +4
  • The Genesis DAO will be responsible for allocating nearly 2/3 of the funds raised from the token sale. GEN holders will decide which projects on the DAOstack to support and which new DAPPS to fund to integrate with DAOstack. Also, in the future Genesis DAO will have the ability to mint the remaining 40% of the GEN tokens. +1
  • There are already three solid projects working on DAOstack. One can only imagine how many more there could be. Sapien is a social news network, Menlo is a platform for decentralized funding of blockchain projects, and Cultu.re is a worldwide P2P identity and contracts system to parallel those of nations and states. +2
  • It’s hard to imagine GEN holders and reputation owning voters don’t make proposals in the future for new DAOs that want to build on the stack to pay a fee or ship airdrops to Gen holders. +2.5

Disposition

Tons of potential with this one. 6.5/10 is our final score.

Investment Details

*There will be a minimum purchase requirement of 1 ETH for both the presale and the main token sale.

*Article adjusted on May 13, 2018 to reflect new information in the “risks” section. Therefore, the final score was adjusted upward to 6.5/10.

ICO Analysis: CWEX

Published

on

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here’s how it works:

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

Token

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

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

Distribution:

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

Allocation

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

Team

From Switzerland, this impressive team has 5 founders.

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

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

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

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

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

David Guye – Partner Relations Manager. Huge wine expert.

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

Verdict

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

Risks

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

Growth Potential

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

Disposition

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

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.
