ICO Analysis: Mothership

Published

on

In the age of technology, financially depressed or neglected regions of the world have renewed opportunities to attract business and distinguish themselves from other jurisdictions. Over the past few years, Estonia has raced to the head of the pack in terms of moves made in this direction. The e-residency program allows people from anywhere in the world to become Estonian citizens online. According to an article from CCN around the time of the program’s implementation:

In October [2014], the Estonian government invited anyone, anywhere, to become an e-citizen of the Estonian digital society, open a bank account in Estonia, or start a business.

The frameworks of legalization are only the beginning for an initiative like this, however. There have to be businesses who will implement the things which are encouraged or allowed. This is the purpose of Mothership, in four simple bullet points:

  • The Mothership token market intended to make token integration easy for Estonian companies.
  • An actual virtual wallet which established Estonian e-citizens can associate with their citizenship.
  • An exchange.
  • An API for other companies to directly access said exchange and token market.

So What?

The focus on Estonia is not exclusive. Anyone in the world will be allowed to use Mothership services. Building on top of Estonia’s tech and crypto friendly regulations is more of a philosophical move than anything, as there are other places they can operate just as well. There is inherent risk in an ICO like this, where they are simply bundling services already well-managed by other companies, and often using inexperienced talent to get the job done. Let’s see what they’ve got for talent on board.

Mothership Team

CEO Arseny Zarechnev has previously worked for Atlassian, a major web services company which has BitBucket (a very similar project to Github) as one of its properties. He resides in Russia physically, but is an official Estonian e-Resident. He concurrently runs a firm called Sabanka, which is a “DevOps, SysOps and Cloud” service provider focused on other start-ups. DevOps are defined by Wikipedia as “a software development and delivery process that emphasizes communication and collaboration between product management, software development, and operations professionals. It seeks to automate the process of software integration, testing, deployment, and infrastructure changes by establishing a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software can happen rapidly, frequently, and more reliably.” Unfortunately, like Mothership, Sabaka.io is a relatively new venture for Zarachnevm, and there are currently no publicized testimonials as to their abilities. Nevertheless, it would be the mindset necessary to work in DevOps that would be necessary to successfully amalgmate the varying services that Mothership hopes to.

CTO Anton Egorov has a degree in nuclear power engineering. His previous experience, however, is largely in computer systems engineering. He worked at Ostrovok, a popular hotel booking application for Russian-speakers.

Mothership Token

Mothership is over 75% of the way to raising just over 24,000 Ether at time of writing. If they raise their full amount, a supply of 140 million tokens will be generated. The minimum of 8000+ was long ago reached, so this thing will definitely launch. Some of this supply is eaten up in a referral program.

Speculative Returns + Buyback

Up to half of the tokens will be burned in a buyback program Mothership intends to conduct over time. To do so, they will take proceeds from activity on the Mothership platform and delegate them to buying back MSP tokens – after which they will destroy them until the supply is halved. Following that, the only avenues to token redemption are making use of it within the Mothership platform or dumping it on an exchange. There is no mention of a revenue share, meaning that whatever Mothership earns after launching belongs to it. Purchasing MSP tokens does not make you a shareholder in the company or its operations, but if the company is successful, your tokens will have value to those that need them for use in the ecosystem.

The Verdict

This is not the most attractive ICO to date. There are some problems with it. It is a great idea but perhaps it should be executed by a firm which already has the funding to do it, since there will be numerous operations like Mothership in Estonia and other parts of the world as time goes on.

Risk

Mothership is not offering anything particularly new to the world. As such, they are not the only place to get any of their services. Their value will be brought on by a drive to be the best at what they do, and to feel really confident in that taking place, we have to accept that they are the best. Getting the best people is the only way to do that, and in this very small, growing industry, most of the best people are already busy. Due to the great potential for failure to really take off, we have to shave 3.5 points off the top. All of this presumes that Mothership will not have big issues in making its platform work. If you think they will, you can safely shave another full 1 point.

The existence of a referral program is a red flag anyway you slice it. Telling a friend about an investment usually does not require one to get a piece of that investment, because a high tide raises all ships. The author docks .25 for a hunch.

Growth Potential

Certainly there is a ton of space in the world for blockchain services companies and companies which make it easier for businesses to get online. It seems that anyone can start an exchange and it will get some volume, and it also seems that the dominance of cryptocurrency exchanges is in constant flux. As such, Mothership has a lot of opportunity to take its massive funding and fight its way into the exchange market. Having former blockchain.info employees on board and other experienced talent, as well as good marketing, will probably yield moderate to good results. For this we lend 5.

For being first in the region with this specific implementation, we lend another 2 points.

Disposition

The numerical rating here is not high because there are not a lot of things to get overly excited about here. The project is cool, but that doesn’t mean it will be a multi-billion dollar company in a decade. So we come out with 3.25. (-3.75 + 7). For those who will actually make use of the platform, and not merely speculate on the sidelines, it’s legitimate to grant another point. 4.25 for those cases, 3.25 for most cases.

Investment Details

The crowdsale is ongoing and about 3-quarters through. If you would like to invest, get over to https://buy.msp.cx/ right away. The rate is 5800 MSP tokens per 1 Ether invested – and there is a program, although, as mentioned, the distribution is almost over.

ICO Analysis: Uulala

Published

on

By

Uulala offers a payment, remittance and micro-credit solution to the underbanked population in Latin America. The Uulala platform provides individuals in the U.S,, Mexico and Latin America the ability to participate in secure financial transactions, create a credit profile, make money transfers, as well as receive access to entertainment and participate in e-commerce, which they could not access before due to limited banking infrastructure.

The market for remittance is growing due to the situation in the economies of the world, trends in the development of migration processes and the level of unemployment. Total money transfers in the U.S. amounted to $429 billion in 2016.

Latin America and the Caribbeans are the only regions in which the growth of remittances was noted in 2016. According to the assessment, their total amount was $73 billion U.S. dollars (6.9% more than in 2015).

According to the World Bank, the average commission on transactions in the world is 7.45%, and in many remittance corridors apply significantly higher rates, which can reach 15%.

Uulala plans to take advantage of mobile money transfers through thousands of points of deposit of funds and through their Power User program. Their platform will also offer value-added services, such as entertainment products, the ability to replenish the balance of mobile phone, paying invoices abroad, forming a credit profile and cashback.

In addition to this, Uulala has filed a patent for in-house developed dynamic method fragmentation, which involves cryptographic data splitting into unique segments, the use of an error-prone Reed code – Solomon and the algorithm for calculating the checksum.

The company will create and track users credit profile, which will allow opportunities for micro-crediting platform that links creditors and lenders.

Overall, the company plans to offer a set of services in one application through an affordable and easy to use platform.

Competitors’ Market Landscape

The most significant competitors are Stellar, Trinity Network Credit, Monetha and Graft.

Traditional companies involved in remittances include Western Union, Paypal and Moneygram.

The project has a fully working MVP and is planning to release a fully working product after the crowdsale.

Token

The token Metrics are outlined below:

  • Soft Cap: 5m USD
  • Hard Cap: 50m USD
  • Total Supply: 750,000,000 UULA

The token distribution is outlined below:

  • 33% (250,000,000) – private sale participants

  • 10% (75,000,000) reserved by the Company to incentivize community, user adoption and strategic partners.
  • 10% (75,000,000) to be distributed by the company to appropriate founders and early investors at the company’s discretion.
  • 14% (100,000,000) to be distributed by the company to users of the Uulala platform through a referral and rewards program on the platform.

Any unsold tokens in the private sale will go into the public sale.

All unsold tokens from the public sale will stay on the Uulala platform held by the Company for sale only on the platform program

  • Cap – 25m
  • Token allocation – 125,000,000

Uulala will use part of the proceeds it received from the commission to buy back tokens the user.

Team

Two executive team members stand out in particular.

Oscar Garcia, CEO

Background – IT, Entrepreneurship

Relevant experience and achievements:

1) SEO Experience in Explore talent – creating online sales channels
2) Created web90x – e-commerce company
3) CEO in Batched – platform for services used by online merchants (mainly processing)

Oscar has relevant experience in programming and business development. It is clear that he has an understanding how to work with merchants and payment processors. Based on his contacts he is creating Uulala. He also has experience running a company, which alone is important.

A major issue is that he does not have experience implementing global projects.

Frank Dicrisi, COO

Background – Statistics

Relevant experience and achievements: COO in Atlantic Pacific Processing Systems, Inc. (payment processor).

Frank has a relevant experience, education and connections.

Alan Alvardo, CTO

 

Background: IT
Relevant experience and achievements: Ten years experience in IT; especially noteworthy are his jobs at Ktapulta Ventures and Opencap (both companies are involved in financial services in Mexico).

Verdict

Uulala offers a traditional use of blockchain for payment facilitation. The project is rather ambitious, has a clear business strategy and focus on the LATAM. The team is educated and has the necessary connections with the payment processors, electronic payment providers and merchants.

Risks

  • The token use case is supplementary. -0.5
  • There is quite a big difference between private sale price and public sale prices. -1.5
  • Competition is rather fierce in this segment. Finance is the first sector that has been disrupted by lockchain. -1.5
  • Low hype level. It seems they are mainly focused on regional marketing and do not have big brand awareness inside global crypto community. -1
  • The token will be harder to list with the multichain tokens on the exchanges. -1
  • Had cap is rather high for the current market. -1

Growth Factors

  • Idea and business case are clear. +1
  • The company has provided potential sales projections. Judging from the number of users they plan to have, their network can achieve a very high transaction volume and capitalization in the long term. +1
  • A focus on Latam, with relevant connections in the industry can allow Uulala to penetrate market fast. +2
  • MVP is available, and they are planning to launch their app after crowdsale. +3
  • Buyback mechanism is in place. +1
  • The company has managed to secure several relevant partnerships like YipTV (streaming service), Federal Consumers Association (which can bring a lot of users for their platform) and Bitlumens (provides lending options). +2
  • Team is above average, well built and educated with a relevant connection in the industry. +1.5

Disposition

Uulala has a noble vision of providing financial services in unbanked regions with a focus on LATAM. They have a team with the necessary skills and background as well as partnerships to back them up. However, there are many risks and ROI maybe not doing so well in the short term. After they get many users on board, it could be a good investment in the long term. I would say it is a good investment for people who share their vision and could use their app in the future. Uulala gets 5 of 10.

ICO Analysis: Peer Mountain

Published

on

Many blockchain-based projects these days seem to focus on issues like data and identity, as these issues come to the forefront of public attention with widespread scandals like Equifax and Cambridge Analytica.

While these kinds of issues definitely affect consumers, companies are lost in the fray as well.

Regulatory bodies like governments have come down and demanded that corporations practice safe data storage and transmission practices that keep the consumer’s interests in mind. One such example is GDPR.

Solutions like Civic have emerged to give users control over their identities online. Peer Mountain is a project that not only lets users identify themselves online in a secure manner but also allows companies to offer services to users using PMTN tokens while staying compliant with regulation.

This could be huge as not staying regulatory-compliant could lead to huge fines or worse for companies.

The myriad of compliance concerns, such as compliance costs, data protection, onboarding, reliable KYC, real-time risk assessment, and so on is not being addressed sufficiently by current market solutions.

Peer Mountain is aiming to be the one-stop solution for safe, online personal data usage (consumers) and compliant, online provision of services (enterprise).

Peer Mountain Example: Car Rental

To give a concrete example, imagine you’re renting a car.

With Peer Mountain’s services, you can submit car rental forms in a few taps and get digital car keys sent to your Peer Mountain account right away instead of having to stand in a line for hours just to fill out some paperwork and wait even more.

Here’s how that works:

  1. You verify your identity with the services of identity verifiers, such as insurance companies. Your identity verification (e.g. just the confirmation that you are who you say you are vs. your personal details) is then stored safely on Peer Mountain’s decentralized network
  2. The car rental company gets access to your identity verification (confirmation document) but NOT your detailed personal information
  3. Since your identity has already been verified, the rental process is quicker
  4. For the rental agency, they receive verification but not any personal data, which means they don’t have to worry about data regulation concerns

Token

In the Peer Mountain token economy, PMTN is used for the following:

  • Offering services – when an end-user uses a Peer Mountain invitation or service offered by a company, the company pays a small PMTN fee
  • Using an identity verification – when an identity verification supplied by a verifier, such as a bank, is used, the verifier is paid in PMTN by e.g. a company that wants to verify the identity of their consumer

Everyone involved in the Peer Mountain ecosystem can take on the role of a consumer, service provider, or identity verifier. For example, service providers can provide identity verifications as another way to earn revenue.

Of the total PMTN supply (to be determined by Smartcap – red flag), 40% will be sold, 40% will be kept in the treasury, 10% will go to the team, 8% will be held in legal reserve, and 2% will go to the advisors.

Peer Mountain’s token sale has 4 stages:

  1. Presale 1 (priority first)
  2. Presale 2 (priority first) (presale ended March 15th, 2018)
  3. Tier 1 (public)
  4. Tier 2 (public)

peer mountain token sale

Of the proceeds, 40% will go to technological development, 25% to business development, 25% to marketing, and 10% to regulatory and legal costs.

The hard cap, too, is to be determined by Smartcap – red flag.

Team

CEO Jed Grant – Grant was named one of the top 200 European fintech leaders by LATTICE80 and has had a long career in tech, including IT at NATO as well as deep experience in compliance as CEO of KYC3.com, a leader in the compliance world that has been recognized for many relevant awards and honors, such as WealthTech Circle in London, Disrupt.Finance in Zurich, Fintech Fusion in Geneva, Lux Future Lab in Luxembourg, and Europe4Startups.

In terms of advisers, two in particular stand out.

Jeremy Epstein, CEO of Never Stop Marketing – took Sprinklr, a customer experience management platform for businesses, from $20m to $1.8b in four years as CMO

Professor Jorge Sanz – Global Chief Innovation Officer in Banking at IBM

Verdict

While the idea is great, Peer Mountain suffers from issues, such as a lack of strong team and advisors (relative to other projects), no working product, no disclosed significant partnerships, and a variable total token supply as well as token sale hard cap.

Risks

  • Team could be stronger relative to other projects’ teams. (-0.2)
  • Same goes for advisers. (-0.2)
  • No working product. (-0.2)
  • No significant partnerships that have been disclosed. (-0.2)
  • Max PMTN supply and token sale hardcap are variable and not set in stone. (-0.5)
  • Maximum contribution amounts unspecified. Combined with heavy discounts for presale purchasers (30% – Presale 1, 20% – Presale 2), this could be worrisome for those looking to get in on the public sale. (-1)

Growth Potential

  • Potentially huge emerging industry (staying compliant with data regulations). (+4)
  • First mover advantage – Peer Mountain seems to be the only project addressing the issues of personal data protection and data regulatory compliance at the same time. If things go well, they could cement themselves as the market leader quickly. (+3)

Disposition

Peer Mountain is a promising project with a very strong promise. However, things like lack of a strong team and advisors, no working product, no significant, disclosed partnerships, variable supply and funding cap, and unspecified maximum contribution amounts make it somewhat of a risky investment. Further analysis is recommended for those interested. As a result, Peer Mountain receives a 4.7/10.

Investment Details

  • Type: ERC20 – Utility
  • Symbol: PMTN
  • Platform: Ethereum
  • Crodsale: TBA
  • Minimum Investment: 1 PMTN (Presale), Unspecified (Public Sale)
  • Price: 1 ETH = 2,917 PMTN
  • Hard Cap: Unspecified
  • Payments Accepted: ETH
  • Restricted from Participating: Unspecified

ICO Analysis: SmartContainers

Published

on

Based out of Switzerland, Smart Containers aims to combine Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and blockchain to rent out airfreight containers used for food and medicine transportation that also track temperatures on the blockchain throughout the shipping process.

Maintaining the right temperature for things like food and medicine is crucial to protect against degradation of product. The integrated IoT sensors will also allow the smart containers to know who’s renting them, when the contract ends, and when to invoice a customer.

Smart Containers already is #4 in the business to business (b2b) global pharmaceutical transportation market with its product, SkyCell. The company has plans to introduce SkyCell in the consumer market as well, which is much bigger than the b2b market.

The company claims to have close to 100 patents, be 75% more reliable than the current market leader thanks to a less than 0.1% temperature deviation, and have the largest amount of blockchain-based IoT sensors in all of airfreight.

By building LOGI CHAIN, Smart Containers is building a mostly free, open platform for logistics companies and users, such as airlines, customs brokers, sea freight companies, and so on. LOGI CHAIN will provide additional services like payment and insurance through its partners, all paid for using LOGI. The smart containers will be completely autonomous, allowing for truly paperless logistics. Billing will be automated throughout the supply chain and through the use of cryptocurrency, transaction fees will be significantly lower.

Smart Containers has also entered the food transportation market recently through FoodGuardians, which is launching in Europe in 2018.

Token

SMARC tokens will be used for profit sharing in the proceeds of SkyCell and FoodGuardians. 20% of Smart Containers’ future dividends as well as potential exit profits from its subdivisions like SkyCell will be paid out to SMARC holders proportionally in ETH according to the number of SMARC tokens in circulation.

LOGI is the utility token for LOGI CHAIN and will be used by parties in the ecosystem to pay for transactions.

There is a total of 150 million SMARC and 100 million LOGI.

Smart Containers is selling two tokens to raise a total of $40m.

120 million SMARC / 150 million SMARC will be offered in the ICO – pre-sale, private, and public phases ($36m). The remaining 30 million will be used to cover ICO costs and align interests of the management team.

Pre-sale was at the end of May and open to invited individuals and organizations. 49.3m tokens (41% of ICO amount and valued at $16m) were sold in the private, invitation-only pre-sale. Participants in the pre-sale bought SMARC at a 25% discount while those in the crowd sale can buy tokens at a 15%, 10%, and 5% discount (first third, second third, and final third of participants respectively). 12.8m tokens (10.66% of ICO amount valued at $5m) are available during the public token sale.

57.9m tokens, or nearly half the tokens for sale valued at $15m/$36m total, are offered in a private sale to institutional investors (red flag).

20 million  / 100 million LOGI will be sold in the token sale – pre-sale, private, and public ($4m). The rest of the tokens will be used for the LOGI CHAIN Foundation (50m tokens), Smart Containers Group foundation capital and ecosystem initialization (25m tokens), and bounty program and incentivizing of board members (5m tokens).

As with SMARC, LOGI pre-sale was held at the end of May and open to select individuals and organizations. Pre-sale saw 5.85m tokens (29.3% of tokens for sale or $1.25m) for sale to invited investors. Participants in the pre-sale bought LOGI at a 25% discount and those in the public sale can buy 3.9m tokens (19.5% of float) worth $1m at a 15%, 10%, and 5% discount (first third, second third, and final third of participants respectively).

10.25m tokens, more than half the float of LOGI or $1.75m/$4m , is for private, institutional investors (another red flag).

Proceeds from the sales of both tokens follow a 3-year allocation plan.

For the funds raised through the sale of SMARC, $15m will be used to scale Skycell, $13m for the launch and scaling of FoodGuardians, $3.6m for reserves and team compensation, $2.4m for marketing, and $2m for Smart Containers IT.

LOGI sale proceeds will be used as follows.

  • $1.55m initial IT development costs
  • $1.5m setting up and running the LOGI CHAIN Foundation
  • $0.75m marketing
  • $0.2m finances and fees

As of press time, $12.82m/$21m in SMARC tokens have been sold while $1m/$3.25m in LOGI tokens have been sold.

All investors have to pass AML and KYC verification.

Team

CEO and Co-Founder Richard Ettl – worked at Bobst Group, a Switzerland-based, global leader in providing equipment and services to label and packaging manufacturers, before founding Smart Containers with Nico Ros

CTO and Co-Founder Nico Ros – as managing partner at ZPF, a Swiss engineering company, he worked with famous architects Herzog & DeMeuron to construct the most expensive buildings in Switzerland before founding Smart Containers with Richard Ettl

On the adviser side, two names stand out.

Oliver Bussmann, former CIO of UBS and SAP as well as President of the Crypto Valley Association (association that promotes development of Zug, Switzerland as a blockchain and crypto hub – Crypto Valley Association partners include KPMG and ConsenSys)

Michael Guzik, ICO Lead for Lykke and former Head of Blockchain & Manager of Digital Strategy at PwC

Verdict

Though Smart Containers is a proven company, the need for an ICO is vague, especially for its utility token LOGI, and LOGI CHAIN is yet to be developed. These factors along with other risks (discussed below) make this an investment that requires proper due diligence.

Risks

  1. SMARC is definitely a security token since it grants token holders the right to dividends from Smart Containers’ profits. In its ICO FAQ, the company says that SMARC are not categorized as security tokens under Swiss law, but investors should be careful. -1
  2. LOGI CHAIN yet to be built. -0.5
  3. Very small amount of tokens available to public compared to private and pre-sale investors. -0.4
  4. Information on lock-ups or vesting vague at best (see “What is the vesting schedule for Team and Advisors token?”), -0.4
  5. No max contribution information. This along with heavy token distribution to pre-sale and private investors is worrying. -0.4
  6. Smart Containers whitepaper light on details about LOGI token utility and focuses a lot on the company’s accomplishments thus far, making it seem like a push for non-equity fundraising via the sale of SMARC tokens in an ICO. -0.2
  7. Competitors like VeChain, Walton, WaBi, etc. working on blockchain integration into supply chain scenarios and in the case of VeChain, have much more significant presence and partnerships (e.g. being incubated by PwC) already established. -0.2

Growth Potential

  1. Through SkyCell, the company is well-established, operational, and has revenues. In the Smart Containers whitepaper, the team claims customers like Roche, Takada, and Novartis. +3.5
  2. Skycell is partnered with large carriers like Cargolux and Emirates, already giving it an in in the industry. +2
  3. Even if the ICO is mostly for fundraising via SMARC tokens, if the tokens really give token holders the right to dividends, investing in them could prove profitable if the company does well, which is very possible considering its past and present performance as one of the leaders in the container industry. +3.5

Disposition

  • Although the need for LOGI utility token isn’t clear, and the LOGI CHAIN blockchain solution has yet to be developed, investing in SMARC tokens could prove profitable for investors that want to benefit from the dividends of a leading container providing company.
  • Smart Containers receives a 5.9/10.
