ICO Analysis: EximChain

Published

on

The world of supply chain management is changing rapidly, as new technology and process upgrades continue to drive competition for market share. This has prompted many businesses to re-evaluate their existing processes and performance with an emphasis on boosting efficiency, transparency and customer service.

Although processes may be evolving, traceability and transparency remain an integral part of logistics planning. The emergence of blockchain technology presents a new opportunity for supply chain networks to more effectively manage their operations.

That’s the general impetus behind EximChain, the software development company that seeks to transform supply chain finance through the public ledger. Founded in 2015 at the globally renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), EximChain is developing a platform that helps supply chains overcome traditional barriers to financing, supplier reliability, data sharing and transparency. It does so by providing a common platform for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to receive supply chain financing and for investors to fund such initiatives.

According to the whitepaper, the main vision of the project is to develop a global supply chain that is driven by “rules-based applications.” This includes helping buyers verify the reliability of suppliers, helping suppliers access credit and ensuring that network participants are able to share inventory information on the blockchain.

EximChain has attracted a lot of attention from the blockchain community due to its deep connections with MIT and recognition as one of the best entrepreneurial projects in the region. In 2016, it won top prize at the Boston Seagull Entrepreneurship Contest as well as an innovation prize from the Rice Business Plan Competition.

Token

EximChain has developed an ERC-20 compatible token called EXC. As a utility token, EXC will be used by SMEs and early adopters to purchase supply chain solutions on the EximChain platform, as well as participate in the project’s governance structure. As such, 20% of the available token supply has been reserved for SMEs and early adopters.

For investors, EXC tokens will be tradeable until two weeks before the Mainnet Network Launch, which is scheduled for the second quarter.

Half (50%) of the funds generated by the token raise will be used for platform development, which includes software development, legacy system integrations and team salary. One-quarter (25%) of the funds will be used to build the supply chain ecosystem. An additional 20% will be devoted to operational expenses and 5% for exchange listings.

The public ICO has been scheduled for Mar. 15, 2018 and will last for one month. The company has outlined a project roadmap that runs through Q1 2019, at which time participants will be able to use the EximChain blockchain to launch their own tokens and supply chain management tools.

Team

EximChain is backed by a team of MIT-trained professionals, supply chain experts and technology leaders that is widely regarded as one of the strongest in the ICO industry.

Hope Liu is the project’s co-founder. Based on her previous work experience at UBS Beijing, her main background is in finance and blockchain technology. She currently serves as the Lab Lead for the North America Blockchain Association.

Co-founder and CTO Juan Huertas is also trained at MIT, and has served multiple startups in the capacity of technology consultant.

Jian Xiu is the project’s Business Architect. Prior to joining EximChain, Xi spent 14 years at IBM. Former Amazon Web Services employee Louis Lamia serves as Director of Engineering.  Rounding out the executive team is Douglas Sanchez, who has been designated Director of Product.

The advisory team consists of ten people with expertise in blockchain, supply chain and emerging technologies.

Verdict

EximChain is among the year’s most anticipated crowdfunding campaigns. As such, it is likely to generate plenty of interest once the crowdsale begins. This interest will cut across multiple domains, including SMEs and investors.

Based on the information we have available, the growth opportunity outweighs the risks. That being said, EximChain has reminded us several times in its whitepaper that EXC tokens are not speculative investments. This could be a positive or a negative, depending on your outlook.

Risks

  • Competition for blockchain-based supply chain applications is on the rise. OriginTrail is perhaps the most prominent example of supply chain projects that raised nearly 18,000 ETH through its crowdsale. There’s also competition from more established technology players, such as IBM, which already has a successful case study in Wal-Mart. -2
  • Supply chain management is a highly centralized process, which could lead to implementation risks for a project like EximChain. This extends beyond just high operational costs to include cultural buy-in and integration from various aspects of the supply chain. As is the case with many ICOs, implementation risks must be weighed carefully. -2
  • U.S. and Chinese residents are barred from participating in the ICO, which could limit the overall success of the crowdsale (we say this because China has been identified as a major market for SME supply chain).  We are not sure why U.S. investors are barred since the whitepaper makes it abundantly clear tat EXC is a utility token. Nevertheless, we perceive this to be a minor risk given the project’s high-profile nature and conservative fundraising goal. -0.5

Growth Potential

  • The project right down to the token distribution model has all the features of a long-term business opportunity. Investors looking for quality long-term investments have probably come to the right place. A conservative market cap and limited token tradability suggest EXC will be less prone to pump-and-dump speculation. +2
  • The whitepaper rightly identifies a massive gap in SME supply chain financing totaling $2 trillion globally. This figure is based on a 2013 study published by the World Bank. Clearly, there is a huge business case for a project of this nature. +3
  • With a Mainnet launch scheduled imminently, the project is already moving forward. Although the Mainnet launch has been pushed back, this is fairly common among ICO projects. EximChain’s three-year backstory leads us to believe the project is scaling up at a sure pace. +2
  • According to the whitepaper, the project has already signed on nine partner companies, including SMEs and a Chinese-listed enterprise. +2.5
  • EximChain is not only run by MIT graduates, it was incubated there. This gives the project instant credibility. (For those who are unaware, MIT has been ranked the top university in the world by QS World University Rankings.) +2

Disposition

When it comes to blockchain disruption, few industries are as ready for a makeover as supply chain and logistics. EximChain has a solid product, strong team and plenty of hype to make it one of the year’s most exciting projects. Based on the above analysis, we have assigned the project a rating of 7 out of 10.

    Interesting project and review. Per Telegram the whitelist closed 15 January. Would be helpful to the reader in future ICO reviews to highlight whether whitelist still open or not. Suggest you include in the investment details section at the bottom

    These analyses would be much more useful for subscribers if posted before the whitelist closes. The only point I see in posting this now is in case the author got in and want to help hype his investment. Disappointing.

      February 5, 2018 at 7:17 am

      Exactly, this is a paid subscription service and HACK should provide early info during pre-sale/white-list phase to the subscribers. No point in publishing now which anyways we can learn from other free websites.

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
