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.

ICO Analysis: Bounty Angels

Published

on

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.

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.

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
