ICO Analysis: Marlin Protocol

Published

on

Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) play a lead role in today’s internet. They provide high availability and low latency by distributing content through a network of proxy servers and data centers. Every day more and more smartphones and other devices log on to the web to stream from sites like Netflix and YouTube. Most streamers won’t ever think about just how difficult a process it was to bring them their programs. Every piece of content that is viewed is widely replicated and cached for load balancing using sophisticated algorithms before it is instantly delivered to them upon request.

Typically, the content seen on a web page is stored on a server. Viewers of said content, who are close to this server geographically, will not have any problem instantly viewing content. However, when a website viewer is far away from this server, or traffic is high, the result is long buffering times. Increasing demand for streaming is quickly becoming a problem. And with VR, AR, and live 4k videos right around the corner, the current infrastructure needs an upgrade.

“Marlin is a decentralized CDN solution which enables processing, storage, and delivery of content at low cost by utilizing the spare bandwidth and hard drive space of internet users in exchange for network’s native LIN tokens. Blockchains and smart contracts are used to decentralize accounting and payments while also enabling trustless Quality of Service(QoS) checks. The decentralized, peer accelerated infrastructure eliminates risk, lowers congestion and brings supply closer to demand by utilizing idle resources which are only one or few hops away from the end-user.”

Existing CDNs are centralized and monopolized by a handful of web giants such as Amazon, Rackspace, and Akamai. These big players are not incentivized to build PoPs in unfrequented areas, and the smaller players are being blocked out, resulting in low-quality service, an sometimes no internet all-together in certain third world countries.

Marlin Protocol solves this problem, lowering the need for physical servers by utilizing the network itself as an alternative. This decreases the upfront costs significantly as well as the physical distance between users. They will decentralize CDNs by providing a peer-to-peer content delivery network that would rely on a two-tiered network of master nodes and relay nodes to reduce latency and ensure high availability. Reducing costs of CDNs by up to 90%.

The Marlin network is designed with the following objectives in mind:

  • Complete decentralization.
  • Reliability
  • High Availability
  • Low latency
  • High throughput
  • Horizontal scaling
  • Configurable security
  • Low storage overhead.

According to the team:

“Here at Marlin Protocol, we believe a decentralized CDN powered by the blockchain is the all-encompassing solution for all parties involved. By leveraging unused bandwidth within a secure, P2P (peer-to-peer) network, both ISPs and publishers benefit in addition to consumers, regardless of the regions or situations they were born into. Additionally, to incentivize optimal participation, Marlin allows for users to monetize their unused storage and bandwidth. This facilitates more nodes to participate in the network, enhancing page loading times for all users involved thanks to blockchain technology and its network effects.”

This project is extremely technical. There are two types of blockchain nodes used to perform several checks on serving nodes such as Proof of Availability, and Augmented Proof of Storage-Time to track any fraudulent behavior and ensure network’s quality of service.

To read about this, as well as all the other specifics, we recommend checking out the whitepaper.

Token

LIN token is the primary transactional currency in the Marlin ecosystem.

There are multiple ways in which LIN tokens can be used and thus flow amongst stakeholders.

  1. Website owners can use LIN to avail CDN services to speed up and secure their website.
  2. Dapps using Marlin can use LIN tokens within their ecosystem to engage users.
  3. Streamers can use tokens to pay transcoders for transcoding their VOD and live streams.
  4. Advertisers can sponsor publishers using LIN o get their ads inserted into the stream.
  5. Viewers can pay publishers for premium content or even subscribe to video streaming services using LIN tokens.
  6. Viewers can gift video streamers using LIN tokens.
  7. Viewers can win LINs in exchange of Proof of Viewership puzzles embedded in video segments.
  8. Activities such as login, sharing, subscribing, commenting, referring can be rewarded by partner news, video, music and social media apps.

The project has a multiphase token generation event:

  • Phase 1 – Private sale and TGE (token generation event): 35% of the tokens released for fundraising.
  • Phase 2 – The second phase of the TGE starts with the launch of their mainnet. Masternodes will be awarded minted LIN tokens (known as network rewards based on their PoST proof hashes and service certificates). Three billion tokens will be awarded in the first four years. The remaining 30% would be allocated over the following six years.

The token distribution is as follows:

  • 5 % Partners
  • 15% presales
  • 20% ICO
  • 30% Network Rewards
  • 10% Team
  • 20% Reserve

Use of proceeds:

  • 6% Legal
  • 11% Partnerships
  • 23% Sales and marketing
  • 45% R &D
  • 9% Operations
  • 6% misc

In terms of staking, Marlin’s storage network is split into two kinds of nodes. Master and relay nodes are required to stake tokens to join the Marlin network and have requests redirected to them. As the load on the Marlin network increases, it will become profitable for new nodes to join the network to deliver content. As a result, increasing amount of tokens will be locked for staking. Learn about all the specifics starting on page 8 of the whitepaper.

Team

Most of this extremely young team recently graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology and Stanford.

Siddhartha Dutta (CEO), formerly the core developer for #26 ranked Zilliqa. also has history as a software engineer for Microsoft (5 months).

Prateesh Goyal (Co-founder) is an MIT Doctor of Philosophy.

Pratyaksh Sharma (CTO ) obtained a Master’s from Stanford 2018, interned for Facebook and Pinterest for four months and has experience at the python software foundation.

The team has six developers and six advisors, all of which look solid and capable.

Verdict

Existing CDNs are centralized with high upfront costs. Marlin Protocol says they can deliver a CDN that can bring down the costs of those services by 90% (from 17 cents per GB to 1.5 cents per GB), without compromising on quality and reliability. On top of that, Marlin is a marketplace with transcoders, advertisers and several other services built right into the network. Media streamers, software enterprises and video game companies can benefit from Marlin’s cheap delivery solutions. Next generation Dapps that don’t wish to rely on existing centralized infrastructure will benefit from decentralized storage, CDN services and advertising solutions provided by Marlin.

Risks

  • Inflation could be a problem for short and long-term prices. -0.5
  • Hard cap is 40 million and they are only selling 35% of the tokens. That’s going to make it really challenging for contributors to see any short-term returns. -2
  • Team is not very experienced. -0.5
  • There are concerns regarding Marlin not being able to accommodate mobile devices as relay nodes, which is a big problem in countries that lack traditional hardware and use mobile devices instead. The team has acknowledged this problem and are researching for workarounds. -1

Growth Potential

  • The whitepaper is good. Forty-two very detailed pages definitely written by people who know what they’re doing. It passes the test. +3
  • The masternode system is the key to this project’s success. If enough talented techies set up proper nodes to make the ecosystem run right, and then build a large community around themselves, the skys the limit.+2
  • Dapps: If Marlin succeeds in providing the necessary backbone, Dapps will surely use this platform. +3
  • Pretty legit looking early partnerships with Clip India, Gamedex, Wistia, Bitriver, Cincopa and Server Global. +2

Disposition

It’s still very early in this project. There are a few question marks, but overall this looks solid. We arrive at a score of 6/10. The score would be higher if the hard cap wasn’t so high.

ICO

ICO Analysis: MOBU

Published

on

There’s a lot of buzz around security token offerings (STOs), and for good reason. There’s an $80 trillion securities market that has barely been touched by blockchain. Uncertainty and discrepancy in regulations have stifled the market up to this point. But it’s just a matter of time before the world is swimming in STOs.

This new project, MOBU, wants to provide a platform for launching compliant security tokens. This platform will “incorporate the ability to select experienced legal counsel across multiple jurisdictions within the platform, token issuers can be sure they can create compliant tokens customed to their local jurisdictions.”

From the whitepaper:

“MOBU is a decentralized blockchain based organized ICO platform for launching compliant security tokens. Real businesses such as property development companies, gold mines, retail companies and many more will be able to launch security tokens on the MOBU platform. MOBU connects approved entrepreneurs and investors by cutting out middlemen.”

Some core features of the platform:

  • MOB20 Protocol that defines a set of commands for security tokens to implement.
  • Supports Reg S, D, and A+ compliant security token offerings.
  • Vetted tender process for: legal providers, smart contract developers, escrow providers, KYC providers, etc.
  • A new standard called, Know Your Supplier (KYS), for complete due diligence compliance for all service providers using the platform.
  • A rating system for service providers which will create a free marketplace for investors.
  • A network of authorization centers for KYC/AML compliance.

This is only a taste of what MOBU plans to offer; check out the whitepaper here for more details.

Token

MOBU is a utility token and is the key to smart contracts and the ecosystem. Found on  pages 15-18 of the whitepaper is all the different purposes of the token, including MOBU Referrals, “where companies or individuals referring ICO issuers onto MOBU will be rewarded in MOBU tokens which will be equivalent of one year’s revenue generated on the platform by the percentage of fees generated from the marketplace.” Additionally, “This amount will be paid in MOBU and locked-up over a 3-year period also ensuring an increase in demand and scarcity of MOBU.”

There is also what’s called a “lockup” utility: All the ICO service providers on the MOBU will stake a certain amount of MOBU tokens to receive the right to operate in the ecosystem. These tokens will be locked up for the full duration while the service provider remains and utilizes the MOBU ecosystem.

Distribution:

Team

Mostly from South Africa, 12 members of the management team are listed. As a whole, they seem good, but not great. Here are a few that stood out.

Juan Engelbrecht – Founder/CEO. Also founded Zaber (a large South Africa crypto farm) in 2015. He spent 2 years as Director at Khalifa Capital. Has been Director at Evolve Fund Managers since 2013.

Paul Pelser – CFO.  He spent 17 years as an accountant for PSP Pelsar Accountants. He has been the owner of Pregal Mining for the last seven years,

Paresh Masani – Blockchain/security engineer. He spent three years as Mobile Platform Exec Director at Goldman Sachs, London. Senior Director at Thomson Reuters and ETX Capital.

A total of 12 Advisors, and two are from Realstart.com, a custom software development company. At least six of them are ICO experts and three are blockchain enthusiasts.

Verdict

This is an extremely attractive project andnd it looks like the hype/demand for this token is there. They already raised $3 million in the pre-sale, and are asking for just $6.5 mill more in the public sale.

Being a front-runner in the cryptocurrency space has proven to be a beautiful thing. When we asked CEO Juan Engelbrecht, who is your nos 1 and 2 competitors, he named Securitize and Polymath. Polymath has a $75 million market cap.

Risks

  • Pretty much crickets in their GitHub. Twelve followers. -1
  • No MVP out yet. They provide this video of what the MVP will look like, though. -1
  •  Non-accredited investors from the US are banned from using the platform. This is the opposite of a risk but gets a minus nonetheless. -1 
  • Their Blockchain Engineer, Paresh Masani (Goldman Sachs and Barclays) is a stud. But the rest of the team and advisors seem pretty average. -1
  • At this point in time, no major exchange is going to list the security tokens birthed from MOBU. When asked about this in Telegram their CEO said, “LA token has a security token exchange division. Also, MOBU is securing equity stake in an operational stock exchange. GBAX and Tzero will also have security token exchanges available soon.” -0.8

Growth Potential

  • They already have a Chrome and Gold mining business signed up to tokenize through MOBU. +2
  • The $9 million hard cap leaves all kinds of room for gains.+3
  • 120 million tokens is all there will ever be; 100% of them will be sold in the ICO. +1
  • MOBU will develop a First Forex Percentage Allocation Money Management Account and will retain 20% of the authorized tokens to put back into the development of the MOBU Platform.+2
  • From the company: “MOBU token will be available on most exchanges such as Bancor but have already been approved by COINEXCHANGE, CRYPTOPIA, IDEX, GET BTC, HitBTC, LIVECOIN and YoBit.net.”+2
  • Although most of these reviewers have lost credibility over the last year, their strong scores prove the hype train around this project is real. +2

Disposition

We usually don’t cover ICOs post-pre-sale, but this one is an exception because it’s still an attractive deal. The pre-sale bonus was 25%, and if you are fortunate enough to get into this crowdsale the bonus will be 20-25% depending on how early you get in. After that, the sky is the limit for MOBU.  7.2/10

ICO Analysis: MFChain

Published

on

MFChain is in essence an entire digital economy with a vision towards creating an infrastructure within the blockchain community which is supportive of all cryptocurrencies. This ecosystem will enable seamless transactions and development to take place and facilitate an entire support network to grow around the future of the MFMainnet.

Beginning with a payments processing and rewards solution, the project will quickly expand with the launch of a variety of cross-chain features including a multi-currency ICO platform, and multi-language smart contract programming within the all encompassing ecosystem. This is ultimately focused on bringing the entire blockchain community of developers, merchants and consumers together in one central and flexible hub.

Empowering Rewards System

One of the major features of the platform which will be implemented initially is the unique rewards system. This will incentivize not only consumers, but also merchants with rebates of up to 1% available for both parties as well as the freedom and flexibility to accept multiple crypto currencies securely. All of which can be done through any Android or iOS powered mobile device which merchants can use as a POS system.

This will be the first of many innovative features to be launched within the ecosystem which will later incorporate attractive benefits for developers, ICO teams, and entrepreneurs alike.

Token

The native token of the platform will be the MFX token. This is an ERC223 token and will be the main token on the platform although the entire principle of the ecosystem is to allow freedom and acceptance of multiple currencies. MFX will be the token which is rebated to both merchants and consumers in the rewards program. This will essentially increase the flow of the token throughout all of the platform processes over time.

There will be a total maximum supply of 521,000,000 MFX tokens with an initial circulating supply of 306,000,000. 57% of the total tokens will be made available during the ICO period. The rest of the tokens will be allocated as follows:

  • Merchant Incentive Program: 15%
  • Developers & Advisors : 8%
  • Airdrops: 1%

A final 19% of tokens will be locked for future developments. These will be released in two blocks at times to be confirmed during Q2 of 2019 and 2020 respectively.

Developer and Advisor tokens will be subject to vesting and periodically released for a period of 12 months following the ICO.

The ERC233 MFX tokens will be converted to MFF tokens upon the mainnet release which is currently scheduled to occur in Q3 of 2019.

Team

Craig Neil (CEO)

He describes himself as a serial entrepreneur and has indeed headed up a variety of projects both in the blockchain sector, and also in finance and advertising. Neil also possesses an extensive engineering background having spent almost 5 years as a full stack engineer at Lenders Direct Capital prior to focusing on his own business endeavors.

Jayson Rellis (President)

Rellis is an ICO investor and strategist with a number of significant roles in other projects, such as his partner position at Komorebi Alliance. Prior to his passion for the blockchain, he headed up regional operations at Verizon Wireless where he was employed for more than a decade. He is also a contributing writer for HackerNoon.

Brian Rankin (VP of Banking Integration)

He has interests as an advisor or director for a number of other projects including SigFig, although his most captivating experience noted within the blockchain sector comes from his time as VP for client services at Ripple where he oversaw a number of banking related developments.

Advisors

The project have a total of five advisors currently on board. These members are covering a number of areas including marketing, PR, and technical matters. Among these is prolific project advisor Bogdan Fiedur, a blockchain expert whose skills are widely employed and who features on the ICOBench list of experts.

Partners

Partnerships are a vital aspect within the MFChain project, given the amount of integration with payment processors and networks which is required. The latest partnership which they have struck is with Zagg Protocol. This is in addition to existing partnerships with:

  • ShapeShift
  • Komorebi Alliance
  • DDEX
  • Chosen Payments
  • Loopring
  • Identity Mind
  • EduHash

These key partnerships ensure a progressive path for the project with more to be developed as the project continues to progress.

Verdict

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

Risks

  • The strong competition both within and outside the blockchain which exists in a variety of the markets MFChain is targeting is concerning. These include the likes of Dash, UTrust, and Stack. (-0.5)
  • The broad focus of the project into a number of markets may cause them to lose focus and also leaves them vulnerable as a new project in a variety of areas. (-0.5)
  • MFChain’s core team, whilst having diverse experiences, have nothing which stands out as highly suited to running this type of proposed multi-million dollar platform, with the exception of their VPs experience at Ripple. (-1)
  • Full release of the core teams vested tokens will be completed by Q2 of 2019 according to the whitepaper, with full mainnet launch not scheduled until Q3 of 2019. (-2)

Growth Potential

  • The global payments market alone is heading towards a $1 trillion value. This represents a huge market with almost unlimited potential for growth. (+2)
  • Moving toward a blockchain based and cashless society, we would expect to see a big migration toward blockchain based ecosystems such as MFChain. (+2)
  • The broad focus of the project is also positive in the sense of flexibility and scalability. Two very important factors among blockchain based projects. (+2)
  • The project have maintained a strong and steady following throughout all media channels. This is indicative of the potential and positive sentiment which the community feels toward MFChain. (+3)

Disposition

MFChain has harnessed the fundamental principles of blockchain to provide an ecosystem which is both rewarding and flexible throughout. As the community strives to find ways to promote everyday use of cryptocurrencies, the introduction of a system which can perform all of its functions in a cross-platform manner, is an exciting prospect.

Although the project team still have a lot of major steps to complete in order to bring MFChain to market, premium among these being to establish more key partnerships, the market is large enough and increasing constantly in size for them to position themselves strongly within if they can continue the current momentum.

MFChain receives a 5/10.

ICO Analysis: VAEON

Published

on

“VAEON is a decentralized protocol that enables individuals to control their personal data and benefit from its value. It also gives companies the opportunity to build new business models in an ecosystem free of any middlemen.”

Based on EOS, VAEON provides an independent and open protocol with built-in-governance. Its a lot like a DAO, but the team calls it a DAC (Decentralized Autonomous Consortium). The protocol clearly defines how personal data is structured, exchanged, or sold.

“VAEON allows every user to securely combine their profiles, personal data, professional credentials, and networks of contacts into one standardized source they can protect, share, or monetize as they wish”

According to the whitepaper, after concluding that data is indeed valuable, and companies are collecting as much of it as they can, VAEON has determined there to be three major problems with big data:

  1. Much of our personal data is in the hands of a few big companies
  2. Data silos that lack formatting standards make data hard to reuse
  3. Centrally-stored data is vulnerable to hacks and data breaches.

VAEON solves these problems with their decentralized ecosystem that will have both Data Providing Apps and Data Requesting Apps. The apps interact directly with the smart contract and act as a gateway between businesses and user data.

There is no trusted central authority within the ecosystem. The DAC will vote in an entity called the Protocol Administrator, whose job is to evolve, maintain and adapt the protocol in the future. The administrator is continuously elected by the community.

The VAEON Ecosystem includes three important stakeholders:

  1. Users of web services.
  2. App development companies that provide web services.
  3. Businesses that buy user data.

We just scratched the surface; for more specifics check out the whitepaper.

Token

VAEO is the protocol token that aligns all the shareholders’ interests. It gives the user full control over his/her data.

VAEO serves three main functions: medium of exchange, governance, and fraud prevention.

Much of the value of this token is on the governance end. Since VAEON is a true DAC, if successful, million-dollar companies that use the protocol will need to fight for control in the company by using nothing more than votes. According to the company, “The voting power is calculated by a time based staking function that converges against a fixed value. ”

Allocation:

  • 41% Public sale
  • 20% Protocol development
  • 13% Marketing
  • 8% Partner relations
  • 10% Team
  • 8% Advisors

Use of Funds:

  • 37% Development
  • 15% Operaations and Administration
  • 45% Marketing and Sales
  • 3% Legal

Team

There are seven management team members listed, most of them are from Germany.

Andreas Mikolajewski – CEO. Six  months as DLT Researcher for IOTA Foundation. Six years as Software Developer for SAP.

Volker Rofalski – CFO. Has loads of experience and is on the board of several publicly traded companies; Mutares AG, Intercard AG, Demecon AG.

Pedro Isaac Lopez Lopez – COO. A young gun, blockchain expert. Interned for Deutsche Bank. Operations Maneger for one year at Tracktics GmbH.

Florian Gauger – CTO. Currently a Software Engineer at Google. More than three years spent as a Software Engineer for SAP.

Six Advisors, two of them are from Instaffo, a recruiting platform with 41 employees on LinkedIn. The others are a CEO of Demekon Group, a managing partner at Iconiqlab, the CEO at Iconiqlab, and an International Marketing Specialist.

They have a couple of key partnerships already with Instaffo and IconiqLab.

Iconiq Lab is a decentralized venture capital group with a portfolio of startups including Unibright, Topl, Vlux, and Solidified.

Verdict

So far, the giant Block.one billion-dollar EOS VC fund has invested in three projects; Everipedia, High Fedility (VR), and now VAEON. This is a huge endorsement and gives VAEON instant legitimacy.

Risks

  • This is an experiment, so there will be lots of trial and error. -1
  •  Their community is not very big at all yet. Telegram has only 180 members. 170 Twitter followers. -2
  • Surely there will be lots of competition coming. Basic Attention Token (BAT) comes to mind. -1
  • Personal data may not be worth all that much at this point in time. The whitepaper explains how they used several different strategies to calculate the value of personal data. It turns out each individuals data may only be worth like $30/year. If this is true, many users are not going to care enough to participate. -1.5

Growth Potential

  • Backed by EOS VC, the billion-dollar EOS fund. +3
  • The whitepaper is professional. The team is very intelligent, which can be seen in this podcast called “Everything EOS #26+2
  • The roadmap is long. In Q4 of 2019 they plan to release the first dApp by Instaffo (recruiting platform), which they say will bring 30 million user profiles to the VAEON Ecosystem. +2
  • Prototype looks solid. +2
  • More bold claims on the roadmap. Huge if true. +3

Disposition

“Imagine a world where users are in full control of their data. A world in which their data is securely stored in a decentralized manner, and only they can decide if they share and monetize their data, to whom they send it, and at what price. A world in which users can change from one service provider to another without losing their entire history, data, or digital identity in the process. This is where the VAEON Protocol comes in.”

This has tremendous long term potential, definitely one to keep an eye on. The current problem is that it is lacking in hype, and the team is just now getting started on community building. Only 180 Telegram members so far. 6.5/10
