ICO Analysis: Fantom

Published

on

Fantom is the world’s first smart contract platform based on the Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) that solves the current problems of slow transaction times and scalability issues. There are a few other companies such as Nano and IOTA that are based on DAGs, however, they lack the smart contract dAPP infrastructure. To maintain consensus, Fantom is adopting a new protocol known as Lachesis Protocol. Fantom platform’s new technology, called OPERA, will enable transactions that are executed asynchronously with instant confirmations. Transaction fees will be near zero cost at less than 0.01 USD from one wallet to another.

The Fantom architecture is made up of three layers. The top layer is called the OPERA Application Layer which provides APIs that are available to the public for applications. The middle layer is called the OPERA Ware Layer which will take care of payments, incentives, Story data, and issuing rewards. In the OPERA Ware layer, the Fantom token is a fundamental component of transacting. In addition to this core functionality of Fantom tokens, OPERA Ware allows the payment of the appropriate reward associated with transactions based on the reputation scores and the transaction records of participants. The bottom layer is called the OPERA Core Layer that creates events and maintains consensus using the Lachesis Protocol. Fantom is open sourced for trust and transparency. Fantom is also able to scale infinitely as more nodes join the network.

Fantom’s marketing strategy includes partnering with the South Korea Food Tech Association, which consists of the top 90 corporations in the South Korean Food Market valued at $200 billion USD. Fantom’s CEO happens to be the president of this association.

Fantom will provide dApps used for geolocation delivery services, food reservations and supply-chain management, all of which are points of sales to building on top of the Fantom platform. Once Fantom has successfully implemented this strategy and gained momentum, they plan to hold an international consortium to provide worldwide payment systems, Smart Contract templates, APIs for software development, etc. They also plan to invest significant amounts of funds to recruit and retain developers as well as host conferences with international offices in Japan, Australia, Singapore, and the U.S.

To create the world’s first DAG Smart Contract platform, the FANTOM Foundation is collaborating with blockchain academic researchers, institutional investors, marketing firms, and global engineering teams including companies such as Oracle and SBCK.

Token

Fantom’s token economy rewards impartial evaluators with (FTM) Fantom tokens. FTM will be distributed as an ERC20 token and later converted to native tokens after their mainnet has launched. In order to expand the ecosystem, the Fantom platform will begin with a 5% annual inflation rate that will decrease over time as more users join the network. Twenty percent of the total inflation will be used to reward nodes. The remainder will be used to provide incentives, such as near zero transaction fees, for Fantom platform users.

A total of 40% of tokens are available for purchase during the private and public sale. The public sale is scheduled for June 15, 2018, with a price of $0.04 USD per FTM.

The token distribution is listed below:

  • 40% Token Sale
  • 30% Market Development
  • 15% Advisers/Contributors (3 Months Lockup)
  • 15% Team & Founders (2 Year Vesting Period)

Team

Fantom has a fairly large team consisting of top engineering and marketing professionals from around the globe. Listed on the Fantom website are 11 foundation members, 16 platform development members and 10 advisers. The team brings the necessary business experience and developers for the project’s success and the advisors bring blockchain experience and expertise.

Risks

  • Even though investor enthusiasm isn’t waning on new blockchain projects, there are multiple existing competitors in this space. Naturally, some will succeed and some will fall by the wayside. -0.75
  • The mainnet isn’t scheduled for release until Q3 2019. Competitors may develop similar projects sooner and new competitors will surely be coming along. -2

Growth Potential

  • Fantom is comprised of an experienced team that has connections to help capture the South Korean market. The team is showing commitment to the project with a two-year vesting period for their tokens. The advisors they’ve selected bring extensive blockchain experience and expertise. +3.5
  • Solving the problems of scalability and slow transactions is a major target of current blockchain projects. If Fantom succeeds against competitors such as HyCon and Hedera Hashgraph, they will be positioned to gain significant market share. +2.5
  • An ICO that establishes relevant partnerships is always ahead of the game. Fantom has multiple partnerships including Korea Foodtech Association, Oracle, and SBCK. +4

Disposition

Fantom appears to be another blockchain project poised to succeed in the ever-expanding ICO arena. The team and advisors are solid, partnerships are in place, Middleware Beta is scheduled for June 29, 2018, hype is building, and their community and social media presence is growing.

ICO Analysis: IoTBlock

Published

on

Internet of Things is an emerging technology with the potential of immensely improving our lives. Connecting every single capable device, whether it is a car, a home appliance or a billboard, IoT allows for the collection and enabling of data analysis in a more efficient, faster and cheaper way. Consider that a car accident has just happened quite close to your workplace. This causes a traffic jam, making it inconvenient to use a private car. Usually, this information is either made public too late or is not released at all. If you had known, you could have used some other means of transportation, like the metro, and avoided wasting your time in traffic.

It is almost certain that this technology will take off in the future as many industry giants have already started to research and produce several products. In fact, it is estimated that by 2025 the IoT sector will grow to $11 trillion with 75 billion devices. Yet as in any emerging technology, just as in the case of blockchains, there are several problems which are required to be solved before it is widely used by the public. Studies show that 70% of IoT devices use non-encrypted forms of communications and 80% don’t have even the most basic security. Unfortunately, this makes it possible for hackers to abuse security flaws in a single device and gain access to the whole network. For instance, earlier this year, some hackers used an IoT-connected fish tank thermometer to steal a casino’s database.

In order to solve current and foreseeable problems in the IoT industry, IoTBlock provides a device-agnostic and blockchain-agnostic protocol. This agnosticism should be highlighted, since it means that the protocol can be used by any IoT device and any blockchain, whether it is Ethereum, IOTA, or Hedera Hashgraph. As of now, even the most popular blockchain-based IoT solution provider IOTA does not offer this. IoTBlock’s other important key features include secure authentication, open auditability, and cross-chain communication. The protocol can be used for IoT device authentication, insurance and dispute resolution, device health and safety verification, and data exchange.

Thanks to the use of Ora Protocol, a truly decentralized network of IoT devices is made possible. By its proof of authority, nodes are incentivized to serve truthful data and report inaccurate or malicious data. These nodes are rewarded with tokens in return for their contributions to the network.

Token

Although very little information regarding the token’s use is released at the time of writing, for now, we can say that it will act as a native token to pay fees for platform services. It should be noted that it is emphasized that the token is looking for a stable price per token, which is quite reasonable if it is to be widely used.

No information on the IoTBlock token metrics or how the team is planning to use the token sale proceeds are released at the time of writing.

Team

CTO Michael Arbach: Arbach was a blockchain architect at KodakOne.

Sanjeev Verma: Prior to joining to AMD as a principal architect, Verma has worked as a mobile security architect at Samsung Electronics, a senior research engineer at Nokia and a member of technical staff at Bell Labs.

Richard Fushimi: Fushimi was the CEO at Rocket Internet SE, the president, and COO at Sega, and a managing consultant at Genpact Headstrong Capital Markets.

Leo Rong: Rong has worked as a software engineer at Splunk for over thirty months.

Advisors

Chad Pleper: Pleper was a senior infrastructure architect at Elsevier.

Tugrul Firatli: Firatli has worked as the vice-president of global communication practice at TIBCO Software, as a software engineer at Apple and as a member of technical staff at Bell Labs.

Rex Wong: Wong was a founding investor at Applied Semantics, the company who created AdSense and later sold it to Google in 2003.

Verdict

Below is a breakdown of the risks and growth potential of IoTBlock.

Risks

  • No information regarding token metrics is not released at the time of writing. This makes it hard to evaluate the project’s worth and any potential return on investment. (-1)
  • It is a reasonable assumption that the competition in the IoT sector will be harsh in the future. As more and more technology giants might enter the market, it is likely that they might leave the blockchain-based IoT companies like IoTBlock in the dust with their superior resources. (-2)

Growth Potential

  • All-star team members like Sanjeev Verma and Richard Fushimi. (+2)
  • The protocol’s device- and block-chain agnosticism. (+3.5)
  • The team’s origins can be traced to a hardware and RFID device manufacturer started in 2004. This shows that the team is highly experienced in the IoT sector and not just riding the blockchain hype train. (+2.5)

Disposition

The emerging technology of the Internet of Things is expected to be widely used in the near future. It is estimated that by 2025 the sector will grow to a value of $11 trillion with 75 billion devices. Its use cases are limited only by one’s imagination, but as in the case of any emerging technology, just like blockchains, there are several important problems to be solved to gain wide public acceptance.

Currently, 70% of IoT devices do not use encrypted forms of communication and 80% do not have a basic level of security. As devices in a certain place are connected to the same network, to gain unlimited access to one device is to gain access to the whole network. Some hackers’ gaining access to a thermometer in a fish tank and using it to steal a casino’s database earlier in this year is an example.

IoTBlock provides novel solutions to solve this issues. The team consists of all-star team members like Sanjeev Verma and Richard Fushimi. The protocol is designed in a device- and blockchain-agnostic way, so that IoTBlock can be used by any IoT-connected device and blockchain.

Still, no information on token metrics is released as of the time of writing, making it hard to evaluate any return on investment. Also, the competition in the IoT sector will be extremely fierce in the future and the entrance of more and more technology giants to the sector might leave the blockchain-based IoT companies like IoTBlock in the dust with their superior resources. IoTBlock receives a 6/10.

ICO

ICO Analysis: EndChain

Published

on

Logistics is a series of transactions that link a product from raw material through to the consumer. The logistics and transport management industry generate approximately 13% of GDP globally. Current supply chain logistics models are good, but not great. They can be improved by blockchain technology.

EndChain is a new project based on Ethereum, which aims to disrupt the logistics industry through decentralization, open protocols, and utilities. They believe the best way to improve current systems is to eliminate almost everything except the scan of the package.  According to them, “Technology can be molded to handle the rest of the necessary steps and to fit the needs of all users wanting to access the data.”

From the whitepaper:

“While some companies have attempted to create blockchain solutions for modern logistical problems, no complete solution exists today. Current options revolve around expensive RFID chips or an overt reliance on consumer input. EndChain focuses on the entire logistics chain: from manufacturer to businesses to customer to reseller. The goal of EndChain is to become the blockchain solution that the logistics industry desperately needs by allowing one blockchain that is easy to use for all verticals of the supply chain.”

EndChain wants to reduce the cost of logistics by providing a blockchain that’s responsible for all the data across the supply chain. Their uniform blockchain lets businesses easily adapt and communicate with one another. Their system will cover each sector of the supply chain, including the second-hand market.

The entire Endchain system is based on the use of their patent-pending QR/barcode design. Each item produced in the EndChain supply chain is paired with a unique id that can be automatically registered on the chain. This id is the foundation of Endchain and ensures that every physical item is linked to its digital counterpart.

All businesses which use the EndChain software will be able to identify themselves as producers, transportation, B2B or B2C stores. Employees simply need to scan the code. That simple scan will break down both the generic barcode and the individualized QR code. The software then automatically updates the chain with the new data that can be seen by all users.

There are 2 major benefits to their QR/barcode combo:

  1. It simplifies the scanning process. Instead of 2 or 3 separate barcodes, logistics workers will only have one easy to read code, filled with all the data.
  2. The code will update both the blockchain and the legacy systems at the same time. This allows EndChain to easily integrate with legacy systems that may not want to completely change their current methods just yet.

Additional benefits:

  • Reinforce the Authenticity of product
  • Secure transactions and fast settlements
  • Visibility in the supply chain
  • Cost-effective
  • Route optimization
  • More info on the product and cheaper costs
  • Ownership history

Token

ENCN token is required to purchase QR codes, make smart contracts, and access the data stream.

Token burning: EndChain’s self-regulating economy burns 2-4% of tokens per transaction. It works by destroying  more coins if the current market value of the ENCN is low. If the value of ENCN rises, less supply is destroyed as fewer coins are required for each smart contract.

Distribution:

  • 55% ICO
  • 22% Future development
  • 10% Team
  • 5% Leadership
  • 5% Advisors
  • 3% Bounty and referrals.

Use of proceeds:

  • 60% Development
  • 25% Marketing/sales
  • 5% Legal
  • 5% Security and compliance
  • 5% G & E

Team

Team EndChain is a mixed group from all around the globe. 15 team members and 9 advisors are listed.

Aaron Perkowitz – CEO.  Since October 2017 until now he’s been a Fund Manager at HNA Group, a global Fortune 500 company focused on aviation, tourism, logistics and financial services. Other than that, he lists 3 internships; Morgan Stanley, AngelVest, and RocketSpace.

Pierre Angot – CTO. Paris, France.  A self proclaimed Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain maestro, co-founded Medway, a telephone medicine app with between 2-10 employees. 2 years Managing Director at WAGT Consulting. Currently a Data Consultant at Verteego.

Felix Engelhardt – Business Developer. Currently (8 years) an Analyst at Cimic Group Limited, a world-leading infrastructure, mining, services and  private partnerships group with over 1,000 employees.

Javince Chan – UI/UX Designer. Lots of experience specifically in UX design; Currently at Quadrant Studio, she’s also worked for Amazon (1 yr), AKQA (1 yr), and Symplicit.

It’s an impressive group of advisors, with specific skills they acquired from places like; Huawei, Cimic Group, Morgan Stanley, Audi, Uber, Activision and Blizzard.

Partners are highlighted below:

Verdict

“EndChain provides a complete and cost-effective logistics package that benefits all parties of the supply chain. While most utility tokens focus on high end goods, EndChain focuses on the low to middle market, an area that has been ignored for too long. EndChain is able to enter this market due to the ease and low price of our system compared to other utility tokens which focus on expensive NFC chips or manual entry.”

The current blockchain solutions for the logistics industry won’t work for the majority of goods. They are too expensive to mass produce, therefore, they focus on luxury goods such as handbags, diamonds, and art while the vast majority of market purchases are ignored. EndChain is working on a solution by making a cost-effective product that can be applied to all goods.

Risks

  • Ethereum Blockchain. -1
  • There is already a lot of blockchain competition, and all their token values are at all time lows right now. Demand is not currently here. -2
  • 3% of their tokens will go to bounty/referrels. These bounty hoes usually just dump their tokens as soon as they hit an exchange. -1
  • 50% presale bonus. Same thing as above. They will dump at the first sign of dumpage. -1
  • This will be really challenging to scale. -1.5
  • Unsold tokens may or may not be burned. When we asked them in Telegram, their response was, “Once we got a concrete details, Soon we will be having an important announcement regarding that matter, stay tuned.” -0.5

Growth Potential

  • The team has produced a very profession ICO, a patent pending scan system, and lots of work on GitHub. Here’s their CEO giving a quick explanation on the work they have achieved so far. +2
  • Their uniqe QR code incorporates a barcode within the QR code. This allows users to scan the only code found on the packaging. Businesses that still use a legacy system can scan the embedded barcode. +3
  • 2-4% of the revenue generated from sales will be dedicated to burning EndChain tokens. +4
  • They will give a percentage of ENCN tokens to tradition shipping companies for free, to recruit them to the blockchain. Once they see the benefit of EndChain, they will become valuable costumers. +2
  • One of the largest benefits of this system is that it can be done offline. Information isn’t being downloaded, only uploaded, therefore it can remain in the system until its fully loaded, no need to wait to scan the next item. +3

Disposition

The team is strong, the whitepaper is professional, and the roadmap is realistically detailed. The goal is to launch the full version in Q3 2020. If they raise enough money in this token sale, we like their chances more than most. 7/10

ICO Analysis: OATH Protocol

Published

on

By

OATH Protocol wants to build an analog of a decentralized dispute resolution system modeling the common-juror system. In their view, this will solve the solution to the blockchain governance problem.

OATH Protocol wants to provide a solution to the Blockchain Governance system.

In order to do this the company plans to:

  • increase the usability of smart contracts by providing an easy to use user-friendly smart contract creation tool
  • creating a decentralized jury community, comprised of members with diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise
  • invites users from all communities to not only provide governance for the dApp they support but also for other ecosystems.

The protocol’s main advantages include:

  • Trust – all data is hashed on a blockchain.
  • Confidentiality – all jury members data of confidential.
  • Dynamicity – protocol will ensure that different jurors will be resolving multiple cases to avoid a collision and ensure the integrity.
  • Fairness – protocol will ensure random jurors selection based on a variety of factors as gender, background, age, etc. to have full objectivity.
  • Incentive – a mechanism to motivate jurors for participating and assign them credit.
  • Autonomy – parties mutually set rules that they would be bound by.
  • Transparency – jury votes are disclosed to the community after resolution.
  • Archive – protocol allows keeping all data in a structured irrecoverable way.

Use cases include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • E-commerce, which involves a variety of disputes, such as quality problems, missing pieces, broken product, etc. OATH jury will resolve each dispute based on user-provided testimony.
  • OTC trade of digital assets.
  • Disputes involving decentralized property rent.
  • Decentralized moderation.
  • Oracle for betting.
  • public chain governance.

So basically OATH is a decentralized agnostic protocol that offers a solution to of decentralized governance to all blockchains and Dapps.

Blockchain architecture is highlighted below:

OATH Protocol is an agnostic blockchain which may be integrated into other Daps and public chains.

The chain contains two main files:

  • Case ledger, which includes all information such as contracts, verdicts, voting reasons, selected jurors.
  • IPFS (InterPlanetary File System), which is a network designed to create a content-addressable, peer-to-peer method of storing and sharing hypermedia in a distributed file system. It replaces traditional domain names with content addresses so that users don’t have to consider names and paths of file storage.

Token

The total token supply is: 10,000,000,000 ERC-20 tokens (OATH).

Token use is summarized below:

  • Engagement between participants/granting access to the platform
  • Internal currency

Tokens are earned as nodes, disputes resolution and community services.

Team

We see a well-balanced team with a diverse background in tech, business, and law. Yin Xu, CEO, won several awards for best mobile application.

Jenny Vatrenko, COO, is an influential lawyer and  former litigator at Boles Shiller. She is active on the group’s Telegram channel.

Hongwei Wang has a strong technical background, including eight years of combined experience at Google and other tech-focused companies in China.

On the advisor side, we see people from Zefund, Qidain Capital, Continue Capital, a founder of an EOS supernode and energy startup NAD. Advisors cover the main focus groups: technology, business and legal. Jia Tian is a notable advisor who worked at Baidu and Alibaba, and is a big investor in Bitfinex Dafeng Guo. Tian worked for big investment banks like Morgan Stanley and Goldman.

Zainan Zuo is another notable advisor who serves as a core developer at Ethereum, and is a main developer of the ERC-1202 standard for Ethereum.

Investors

Several notable investors from the VC and blockchain worlds are also worth mentioning. While most are medium-sized funds, Quarkchain is among them. Quarkchain was a top ROI project during the second quarter of this year. EOS Asia and NEM are also partnering with OATH.

Verdict

In general, the project looks interesting. The team has the necessary technical skills to implement the product. We see the support of smart money. The very idea of the product itself is exciting. The decentralized dispute resolution system, which can be used both as a means of resolving disputes between traditional subjects in arbitration and within a decentralized system, deserves interest.

Risks

  • The project does not have MVP, only active Github. -1
  • Low public activity. -0.75

Growth Potential

  • The strong point is that it is an agnostic protocol so that it can be plugged to any blockchain and provide additional value to that respected network with their service. +2
  • The overall idea is interesting. +1
  • Any user of any blockchain can automatically be selected as a juror for OATH dispute which provides flexibility and helps to get users on board. +1
  • The token use case is rather strong – parties must deposit tokens during dispute case and pay arbitrators for their services. +1
  • The roadmap is medium long. Although for this kind of project long-term potential will rise together with overall crypto field and decentralization. +1
  • Token metrics are on the good side. +1
  • Team, advisors, partners, and VCs have been verified. +1.5

Disposition

I would say that the project is above average, but one should wait for prototype and full metrics to make the full investment decision. Currently, the rating of 6.75/10 is warranted, though it may be further increased or decreased once the project is up and running.
