ICO Analysis: Exscudo

Published

on

Exscudo is a mix of legacy and cryptocurrency-based financial tools for global finance. Its token is EON and its ICO begins on April 25th. Currently, early investors get a 10% bonus and are able to invest for about .0002 per EON. Exscudo stands for “exchange” and “escudo,” which was the currency of the great Portuguese empire.

“We have combined the best practices from the centralized and decentralized approaches,” Exscudo CTO Alex Sitnikov says in a video introduction of the platform. According to him and his team, the centralized exchange built into the Exscudo platform is not a red flag for cryptocurrency enthusiasts, but instead a “source of liquidity.” But, all exchanges are sources of liquidity, are they not? And wouldn’t the point of being “open and compatible” be to provide a dumb pipe for transactions to travel down, without the need of the token’s developers – at all?

The public face of Exscudo is incredibly well polished. A dense 47-page whitepaper outlines the project. In this document, Exscudo purports to not be a competitor of Bitcoin, Ethereum, or anyone else – rather, their purpose is to provide “flexibility” that these platforms do not. This begs immediate questions, because the statement “existing blockchain systems could not give us enough flexibility, functionality and independence from third parties” requires significant qualification to ring true. In what way, for instance, does creating a new third-party platform solve the problem of reliance on third-party platforms? Users are simply now relying on this untested third-party.

The whitepaper is not dishonest, however. It notes that the EON blockchain is not particularly better – their reason for creating it was a matter of independence.

… it enables Exscudo to be independent and launch new functions when it is needed.

These things may not be a total project killer, though, because the project seems to have a myriad of goals. Let’s go over them.

1. Enable easy transactions for users without much technical expertise.

This goal is shared by a number of other projects released in the past several months, including Humaniq and Cosmos. That this market is becoming more crowded is not necessarily a drawback, but novelty is important when it comes to driving value toward a single variable. A similar goal of the project is to offer fiat debit cards to users, something which took several years for other new world currencies to develop.

2. Make it easy for miners to get from mining to cashing out.

Exscudo offers a large range of cryptocurrency pairs to trade in comparison with the mainstream crypto-currencies and fiats. It offers extended functionality for trading (mobile platforms, web-platforms), ease of withdrawal to fiat, reliability (developed technology to protect against DDOS attacks) and protection against hacks.

It appears that the EON blockchain itself is a separate project from the Exscudo Exchange and related services, but they use EON. It seems that a version of proof-of-stake is used to mint blocks, with users being required to put up funds in order to process transactions.

3. Provide an API for merchants.

Merchant APIs are still a rarity in the Bitcoin world, with only a few main players including Bitpay. Having this from the outset as a core-developed project is a value add. The Exscudo merchant API would allow the acceptance of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies into the Exscudo ecosystem.

4. Provide reliable trading platforms for international private traders as well as institutions.

5. Offer a secure messaging application.

This project is already in the works. Like Exscudo Exchange, it uses the EON blockchain to function. Others could presumably built in competition with it. There is a booming market for secure messaging, and no serious blockchain-based plays have previously come about. Channels could become an investor’s Signal app, and could rightly be the only truly valuable offering here.

Who Is Behind Exscudo

For this article, we’ll focus on the figureheads. As previously stated, the platform has a very polished look and feel, which can be credited to the front end team. In our modern age, this does not necessarily mean anything at all. Good web developers are increasingly common, to the point that the industry is moving to a self-service model by and large.

Owner and the CEO of Exscudo. With over 18 years of experience in IT technologies and their integration into the real sector of economy he has worked on managerial positions for more than 8 years now. He is a consulting expert on DAPPS Ethereum and consults major Russian financial market players on cryptocurrencies trading. Andrew is an expert on blockchain technologies and decentralized cryptographic data transfer networks.

According to LinkedIn, Andrew Zimine is Estonian, an alumni of Vyatka State University, and has served almost exclusively in executive capacities throughout this career. He lists Java as a skill, and must have used that much more between 1997 and 2002 when he worked as a “specialist engineer.” It is hard to reconcile the claims of his public-facing bio with his LinkedIn resume.

Next up, we have Alex Sitnikov, from the video. Sitnikov worked for Big Blue (IBM) from 2007-2010. This is a big plus in terms of his understanding of how large organizations operate and use money. He appears to have attended Vyatka State University at a time which overlaps Andrew Zimine’s – which might explain how the two met. He is eloquent in his expression of the project, and if the project takes off, will be a valuable asset in terms of professional communication.

Then there are several lead developers, presumably in charge of hiring others who do not make the list. To credit for the amazing web design is one Aliaksandr Zahatski, who previously had an executive role at a “major e-commerce company.” Some research reveals that this company was VZV.su, an apparent Eastern European answer to Zappos, but only for shoes. From this side of the pond, it’s hard to determine the validity of the use of the term “major,” but one thing is for sure: this fellow knows how to make clean websites that are appealing to consumers.

The Verdict

It is not looking good for Exscudo. Perhaps the author is salty, having covered dozens of scams and failed cryptocurrency projects over the past few years, but there are some seriously severe drawbacks to Exscudo which are not sufficiently addressed. Let’s go over them in detail before pronouncing a safety rating on this ICO.

  1. Closed-source?! One of the fundamentally important things about cryptocurrency and cryptography in general is that code is open for review by security researchers around the globe. Much of the Exscudo platform, and the Eon blockchain product, are going to be closed source. According to them, this is for security. This alone is sure to earn it bad reviews from cryptographers and cryptocurrency experts, as well as developers who might otherwise have been interested in building products for the ecosystem. This is not 1996. If it’s not open, there has to be a good reason, and “because security” doesn’t pass the bar. Nevertheless, for those who want to be more forgiving on this score, the whitepaper does note:

    We will publish the source code concerning consensus rules, coin emission and block confirmation on GitHub. The description of the mathematical model is available in the EON whitepaper on the site eontechnology.org.

  2. Limited novelty. Hacked readers already know that this is not the first “integrate all the coins” solution, and surely not the last. Exscudo needs to have some serious partnerships, on the scale of BBVA or the World Bank, in order to really set itself apart. Unfortunately, it is not boasting such.
  3. Murky team. So you say, “Satoshi Nakamoto was anonymous. What does it matter who is building these projects?” Typically, on this score, you would be right. But Exscudo demands to know your identity in order to use the platform fully (which could be seen as a plus for regulatory issues), so you too should demand to know more about its backers. They claim to have around $6 million invested of their own money, but this also begs the question of why not just sell the coins on an on-going basis, instead of using the ICO model? There are a lot of unknowns in their team portfolio, and this could lead to scaring off would-be other investors besides yourself.
  4. Large pre-mine. 35% of the total coin supply will remain with the Excsudo team. This is absurd and almost begs the question of why create a currency at all. If 35% of the US dollar were in the hands of less than 10 people, would it even be considered a currency? We may have a situation where most of the “wealth” is controlled by a few, but this wealth amounts to far more than just their currency. By that metric, Exscudo is far more extreme: 35% of the currency as well as the entirety of its liquidity is centrally controlled. Are they sure they’re utilizing decentralization appropriately?

These factors are all very serious. They do not necessarily spell out a scam, but the thing could easily go that way! These factors combined, while comparing Exscudo to competing plays (such as Humaniq), make its monetary safety rating very hard to upgrade beyond a 3.9.

The author could be wrong, and you might get lucky, but what we’re looking at here is something that most traditional investors could determine they do not need and that any cryptocurrency expert would run away from. The idea may be noble: make it easier for traditional investors to get into cryptocurrency, but we have such offers on the table already or in progress via ETFs and professional-grade trading platforms like Gemini or Bitfinex.

Again, the author could be wrong. As always, this is only one person’s view. Other viewpoints so far seem to be overwhelmingly positive, but one must keep in mind how easily some “journalists” are bought off in this day and age. The author did not pollute this article with any input from the Exscudo team themselves, but purely graded it on its apparent merits (or lack thereof.)

Investment Details

As noted, 35% of the coins will remain with the Exscudo people. Some more will be issued to those who are answering bounties – doing things for the project that have not previously been done, including evangelizing (which is fishy, because it shouldn’t be something users need incentive for). In total, 156,600,000 coins will be available to the public, although of that another 5,280,000 EON will be issued to bug fixers as well as the adviser/ambassador team also listed on their front page.

To invest early and get a 10% bonus, you can create an account like below. At time of writing, the price was around 20,000 Satoshi each.

ICO

ICO Analysis: SyncFab

Published

on

SyncFab is a technology company established in 2013 and based in San Leandro, California. SyncFab is the first peer-to-peer Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) manufacturing blockchain for the hardware manufacturing supply chain. Manufacturers list their machining capabilities on the Syncfab platform and Hardware buyers can send part orders directly to them. Smart contracts guarantee production standards, protect Intellectual Property and guarantee payments. Blockchain makes the supply chain more efficient and cost-effective. By eliminating intermediaries such as brokers, outdated software, and inefficient procurement processes, the Smart Manufacturing Blockchain will easily lower costs by eliminating middlemen, inefficient procurement processes, and outdated software. Syncfab will also connect smart machines to factories and innovators to manufacturers.

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

SyncFab was created to be a supply chain platform used to manage, organize and track parts production using smart contracts. Syncfab will use MFG tokens as an incentive for manufacturers to lower prices and place faster bids, which reduces production time and drives competition. Through SyncFab orders will be sent directly from purchasers to manufacturers, cutting out middlemen. Buyers can then track their parts throughout the production process and have them delivered directly to their businesses, which will eliminate the majority of marketing costs since buyers will have a direct connection to manufacturers and suppliers. Using records compiled on the smart manufacturing blockchain, Syncfab will be able to match buyers with their most ideal suppliers and manufacturers.

Token

The MFG Token is an ERC20 token used to reward purchasers, manufacturers and make payments on the Syncfab platform. Through smart contracts, MFG will be used to incentivize manufacturers/buyers who place orders using SyncFab and the Smart Manufacturing Blockchain. MFG will be available to purchase with ETH with 1 ETH purchasing 5,000 MFG, not including bonuses. 1 billion MFG tokens are to be created with 300 million being sold to the public with a hard cap of $30 million. Total supply will become 1 billion minus the tokens not sold during public sale, which will be destroyed upon completion of ICO.
The ICO began on Feb 15, 2018, and ends on March 15, 2018. ICO bonus schedule: Week 1 (15%), Week 2 (10%), Week 3 (5%), Week 4 (2.5%). MFG tokens to be distributed after completion of the public sale. Allocation of tokens: 30% Token Sale, 30% Partnership Adoption Pool, 15% Technical Development, 15% Smart MFG Tech LTD, 10% Founding Team and Bounty.

To purchase MFG, visit tokensale.syncfab.com

Team

Syncfab’s number of team members is comprehensive, in comparison to other ICO’s, with 10 members and 10 advisors. The executive team members include Jeremy Goodwin – Co-Founder & CEO, (President, CEO of China Advanced Construction Materials, Inc), (Board Member at Cornell NorCal). Andy Le Tong – Co-Founder & CSO, (Co-Founder, CEO of Adaptive Tech), (Advisory Board Member for ImTech). Jay Ligda – CTO, (Previous Owner of SteadyServe.Net, Online Wellness Network, and Synergetic Web Creations). The extensive list of advisors includes Michael Jones (CEO of Science, Board Member of Dollar Shave Club and angel investor with over $2.5B in exists) and  Gil Penchina (Partner at Ridge Ventures, previous VP & General Manager at eBay and angel investor in more than 300 companies such as Linkedin and PayPal.

A complete list of the team and advisors, with brief descriptions, can be found on their website along with their Linkedin links.

Verdict

Industries, such as manufacturing, will soon be implementing blockchain technology as a means to increase efficiency, productivity, and profitability. Many will turn to Smart Manufacturing Blockchain because of its openness to new suppliers and is backed by an immutable distributed transaction ledger. As one of the first tokenized companies to come to market targeting manufacturing, Syncfab is situated to garner significant market share if able to successfully bring to bear its plans. Syncfab’s ambition is to revolutionize manufacturing by connecting buyers directly to manufacturers through the Smart Manufacturing Blockchain. Purchasers and manufacturers will be able to streamline supply chain processes, protect intellectual properties and track parts production in real time. Questions to be answered pertinent to potential investors are: As blockchain technology integrates manufacturing, will manufacturers choose to come on board with Syncfab? If so, in what time frame?

Rrisks

  • There will be some reluctance by suppliers to adopt new technology and current brokers will resist change and want to hold on to their customers and revenues. -1.5
  • International and/or local regulations may limit the use of tokens for supply chain procurement in the areas of the manufacturing supply chain industry. -2
  • Competition in the space will look to take market share away from SyncFab. -1

Growth Potential

  • Syncfab already has an existing platform and has already connected thousands of purchasing departments and individuals to fabrication and manufacturing facilities. +3.5
  • An extensive team consisting of experienced entrepreneurs, investors, and advisors. +4
  • Small businesses will definitely benefit from partnering with Syncfab by connecting directly to consumers. +2.5

Disposition

Current middlemen, which Syncfab looks to dispose of, definitely won’t go away without a fight and could possibly seek other blockchain alternatives to include themselves. Having an existing business already within the industry gives Syncfab a head start on the competition, which is sure to come and challenge Syncfab for market share. Syncfab also recognizes obstacles to mass implementation and lists them in their whitepaper. However, the experienced team and current infrastructure in place, Syncfab is in a good position to effectuate their plans. Syncfab receives a 5.5 out of 10 rating.

Investment Details

  • Token Type: Utility
  • Platform: Ethereum
  • Symbol: MFG
  • Token Price: 1 ETH = 5,000 MFG (without bonus)
  • Payments Accepted During Crowdsale: ETH
  • Crowdsale Date: Feb 15, 2018 – March 15, 2018
  • Hard Cap: $30M
  • Total Supply: Currently 1 billion MFG

ICO Analysis: CloudMoolah

Published

on

CloudMoolah was successfully launched in the USA in October 2017 with currently over 300 developers and more than 10 million gamers using the platform. CloudMoolah is designed to facilitate and manage payments seamlessly between game developers, gamers and payment merchants in a convenient and secure manner on a global scale.

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

The project offers unity developers the opportunity to collect in-app revenues from 100+ million gamers and 500,000 retail points of sales in Southeast Asia. The use of blockchain technology will ensure security and efficiency of gaming transactions while increasing cost savings for developers. CloudMoolah will allow game developers to collect in-app revenues from credit card users and noncredit-card users, which is extremely valuable considering the credit card penetration is less than 3% in Southeast Asia. CloudMoolah combines popular localized payment methods such as Telco Top-Up Cards, Prepaid Cards, Ebanking And The New Moo Token to capture this market.

Token

The MOO token is an ERC20 token used on the Ethereum platform which will have a circulating supply of 300 million and a total supply of 500 million. When released, the MOO token will be available for purchase/trade on public exchanges. Also, MOO can be traded for CloudMoolah Points (CMP), the in-app virtual currency used for payments and transactions within the MOO store. The MOO store is a third party app store populated with Unity content enabling efficient and secure transactions between gamers and developers. Developers will have access to over 100 million gamers through the MOO store.

The public ICO begins March 1, 2018, and ends March 31, 2018. The MOO token price will be $0.30 and have a hard cap of $30 million. The link to join whitelist is here.

// -- Become a yearly Platinum Member and save 69 USD and get access to our secret group on Workplace. Click here to change your current membership -- //

The token distribution is as follows:

  • 41% private/public sale
  • 22% founders/senior management
  • 17% suppliers
  • 10% company
  • 5% staff
  • 5% advisors

Team

The CloudMoolah team has over 30 years experience in the video game industry in Asia with a stellar track record of publishing blockbuster game titles such as World of Warcraft, EA SportsTM FIFA Online 2, Starcraft 2 and Counter-Strike Online. Co-founder and COO Jonathon Sze successfully built EA SportsTM FIFA Online 2 fan base from zero to 25 Million in Southeast Asia. Co-founder and Chairman Roland Ong brought World of Warcraft to Asia and was the founder of IAHGames which won rights for top-rated games such as Starcraft 2, EA Sports FIFA Online 2, and Counter-Strike online. Co-founder and CFO/CIO Benjamin Cher has closed over $500 million worth of VC/PE deals in his career. The complete list of team members and advisors is listed in their whitepaper.

Partnerships include Unity Technologies (Asia’s largest and the world’s most popular game development engine), True Digital Plus, VTC Online, MOL, Softworld, Bluepay, IAH Games, UniPin and Sam & o Group.

Verdict

While CloudMoolah intends to cater to millions of gamers and developers around the world, its primary focus will be on the Asian market, which has been generally under served by mainstream digital payment services. With an experienced and successful team, strategic partnerships  and proven business model, CloudMoolah appears to be on track to make significant headway in the Asia gaming market.

That being said, there are some implementation risks associated with the project. In particular, CloudMoolah is targeting a highly diverse Asian market that differs along multiple strata. This could be seen as one of the major challenges to successful implementation.

Risks

  • As with many ICO’s, the executive team has outside obligations and cannot focus 100% of their attention to the project. -2
  • The project’s main focus region is Southeast Asia, which consists of 11 countries with differing demographics, economics, and languages that can all become major obstacles to mass integration. -1.5

Growth Potential

  • A+ team with decades of experience and huge success within the gaming industry. +5
  • CloudMoolah is an established business that has already made crucial partnerships with both global and local markets. +3.5
  • $30 million market cap with a low 300 million circulating supply. +1.5

Disposition

Working with gaming developers, CloudMoolah appears to be committed to achieving an excellent gaming experience for gamers worldwide. The team comes with great success in the gaming industry that, if applied to blockchain, can create huge cost savings for gamers and larger profits for developers. This leads us to the view that CloudMoolah may be poised for great things. Based upon merits observed, CloudMoolah receives a 6.5 out of 10 rating.

Investment Details

  • Symbol: MOO
  • Market Cap: $30M
  • Circulation Supply: 300 Million MOO, Total Supply: 500 Million MOO
  • Payments Accepted During Crowdsale: ETH
  • Crowdsale DateMarch 1, 2018 – March 31, 2018
  • Token Price: 1 MOO = 0.30 USD

ICO Analysis: TE-FOOD

Published

on

TE-FOOD is now the biggest farm-to-table food traceable system in the world. TE-FOOD serves over 6,000 businesses while averaging more than 400,000 transactions on a daily basis, which results in serving well over 30 million people. TE-FOOD has integrated 2,600 retailers and markets, 3,100 farms, 3,400 livestock agents and 190 wholesale distributors into their system.

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

TE-FOOD coordinates with governments, supply chain companies and consumers to enhance food safety, eliminate food frauds and minimize costs for supply chain companies. The entire supply chain will become more efficient through the use of one interoperable transparent ledger; this will help avert large-scale food recalls and enable smaller, targeted recalls.

Currently, the main focus of TE-FOOD is  the emerging countries that account for 60% of the world’s population along with 45% of GDP, and which needs massive technological disruption because of the level of distrust in their food supply chains. Started in Vietnam and having found success, TE-FOOD is aiming to be in 17 countries within the next five years.

TE-FOOD’s revenue sources are the following:

// -- Become a yearly Platinum Member and save 69 USD and get access to our secret group on Workplace. Click here to change your current membership -- //

1. Selling physical and logical identification materials
2. Charging transactional costs
3. Selling food transport environment sensors
4. Charging monthly or sales volume dependent fees on the marketplace

Token

The company is issuing TFOOD tokens, which are ERC-20 tokens created to be used within the TE-FOOD system for the following:

1. Pay for transactions
2. Pay for value-added information
3. Rewarding conscious consumer behavior for using our Consumer mobile app

A total of 1 billion TFOOD tokens are to be created with 51% being available for purchase during the public sale which is scheduled to commence on Feb 22, 2018, and conclude March 22, 2018. TFOOD tokens should be immediately transferred and can be used in the TE-FOOD system after completion of the token sale.

Team

A Vietnamese and Hungarian company combined to create TE-FOOD with a team that includes more than 20 members (each listed with details on their website along with LinkedIn links). The team is led by CEO Dr. Trung Dao Ha (Co-Founder of Thien Minh Group, President of Hochiminh City High Technology Association, Austria Honorary Consul in Hochiminh City for the Austrian Government and Co-founder/CEO of DAO advanced Technology), CeO Erik Arokszallasi (CEO of Erba 96 Ltd) and CMO Marton Ven (CEO at Flumen and CMO at Erba 96 Ltd).

TE-FOOD works with some of the biggest retail food companies in Asia such as AEON, Lotte Mart, JAPFA and C.P. Group. The government of Vietnam’s largest city, Ho Chi Minh City, also employs TE-FOOD. Current partners include: GS1 (barcodes), Unisto (security seals) and Zalo (message/call app).

Verdict

TE-FOOD is developing a scalable, cost-effective system for tracking, securing and ensuring quality for global food transportation which will reduce corruption, theft, fraud and food-borne illnesses. Identification applications are used to track livestock, transports and fresh food packages from the farm to the table. This will enable fresh food sold in retail to be tracked back to their origins. TE-FOOD is able to track food items throughout the entire supply from beginning to end while accessing quality information.

TE-FOOD has been operating in Vietnam since 2016 with a proven track record and buy-in from thousands of businesse. If the company is able to successfully integrate its functioning business to its tokenized model with participation from current clients, along with expanding to new markets, it may find success for itself and investors.

Risks

  • When seeking to expand to new countries, TE-FOOD may face a variety of difficult regulatory and compliance issues working with different governments and agencies. -2
  • The executive team, though accomplished, is still involved with other businesses which may detract from putting their full efforts into the success of TE-FOOD. -1.5
  • Although TE-FOOD does already have a working business, which is definitely a positive, they will still face strong competition from other blockchain companies. -1

Growth Potential

  • The company already has an established working product and with key partnerships with multiple businesses and the government of Vietnam. +5
  • TE-FOOD is scheduled to be in 17 countries within five years according to their roadmap. +2.5
  • TFOOD tokens will be immediately released and available to all investors. +3.5

Disposition

With nearly 80% of food fraud involving fresh food products and livestock, over 400,000 annual deaths due to food contamination and the health threat of antibiotics overuse in animals used for food, TE-FOOD’s main mission is to greatly reduce these issues by making the fresh food supply chain transparent and more effective through a modern, but affordable ecosystem. Having an already working business model combined with the ability to scale, TE-FOOD appears to have the means to accomplish this mission if everything goes to plan. TE-FOOD receives a rating of 6.5 out of 10.

Investment Details

  • Symbol: TFOOD
  • Type: Utility
  • Price: $0.05
  • Accepted Payments: ETH
  • Public Sale Date: Feb 22, 2018 – March 22, 2018 (Bonus levels – 15% Week 1, 12% Week 2, 10% Week 3, 5% Week 4)
  • Public Sale Amount: 512,000,000 TFOOD (51% of total) to be sold. 1,000,000,000 TFOOD total supply
  • Jurisdictions Barred from Participating: None mentioned
