ICO ICO Analysis: Talao Published 8 months ago on April 13, 2018 By Fredrik Vold On-demand work, freelancing, and the so-called gig-economy is an area that has seen incredible growth in recent years. Companies often turn to freelance marketplaces such as the well-known Upwork.com and Freelancer.com to find talent that can complete specific tasks, often one-off projects that are limited in scope, and are thus saving big by not having to employ people on a full-time basis with skills they only have a limited need for. Freelancers are also seeing the advantages that this can provide for them by having the ability specialize in any kind of niche imaginable, while working from where they want and at any time they choose. While this seems to be a win-win for everyone involved, the problem is often the intermediary. These are the platforms, also known as freelancer marketplaces, that companies and freelancers use to connect with each other. These platforms also usually act as escrow services for payments between the parties, and as arbitrators in case of any disputes. The industry standard by these platforms is to take a cut of around 20% of freelancers’ earnings for the service that they provide. In addition, employers are usually charged 2-3% of their pay-out to the freelancer for using the platform. In addition to this, both employers are freelancers are subject to the central authority and (sometimes unfair) decisions made by the platforms. Both parties also have to trust the platform if any kind of disputes arise between the parties. Despite all of this, the platforms providing these services have continued to grow because both freelancers and employers have nowhere else to turn. This is the problem that Talao aims to solve by developing a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) that will tap into the $50 billion market for on-demand work. Talao claims to be the first decentralized and blockchain-based marketplace that charges 0% commission from both employers and freelancers. If done right, there is no doubt that the market for freelancing platforms and on-demand work is ripe for disruption. The process that the Talao team has laid out for hiring a freelancer on their platform is as follows: Token Already in the private pre-sale stage, the native token of the platform is TALAO, an Ethereum-based ERC20 token. The main use case for the TALAO token will be to conduct transactions within the platform. The full range of uses for the token is explained in detail in the well-written white paper published on the Talao ICO website. It’s also important to note that payments for services on the Talao platform, either as a freelancer or an employer, can be made in both fiat and cryptocurrency. We believe this is important as it can greatly speed up mass-adoption of the platform. A private pre-sale is currently in progress. Eligibility requirements for the private pre-sale are not published, but anyone interested in this may contact the Talao team via email, as per the information given on their website. In order to participate in the public pre-sale starting May 20, the team has set a rather high minimum investment of 100 ETH. Following the pre-sale, the public token sale will commence on June 4. The Talao token sale is divided into two rounds (A and B). Any unsold tokens remaining after round A will be frozen for one year on the blockchain. Remaining unsold tokens after round B will be burned. Team Talao has what appears as a strong and more senior team than many other ICOs that are being launched these days. With the company being based in Paris, France, the management team is naturally mostly French. For future growth, the team is planning to have a maximum of 30 people based at their Paris office and an additional 30 people based in other offices around the world, with current candidate cities for expansion being London, Oslo, San Francisco, New York, and Singapore. Talao’s CEO and co-founder is Nicolas Muller. He has his background as founder of the French freelance marketplace eMindHub in 2015, with further experience from the engineering, manufacturing and aerospace industries. In many ways, Talao is eMindHub for the blockchain-age, with the old company being rebranded as Talao. The other co-founder and COO of Talao is Thierry Thevenet. He is the former founder and CEO of Fi System, a French publicly traded company offering consulting and other services related to Internet marketing, communication and back-office management in the French and Spanish markets. Other team members also appears to have diverse backgrounds with strong experience in their respective fields. The only question that comes to mind when looking at the team members’ backgrounds is whether they are sufficiently experienced with Blockchain technology to successfully carry out a project of this size and scope. Only one person on the team, presented on the website as “Blockchain Team Leader,” appears to have extensive experience with blockchain projects. Verdict The idea behind Talao is undoubtedly a sound one, and freelance marketplaces is in our view an area that is ripe for disruption by the power of Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) and Blockchain technology. The team members have successfully launched and operated traditional centralized freelancing platforms in the past, which indicates that they understand the industry with its inherent risks and opportunities. As mentioned above, the main question mark is the team’s lack of experience in Blockchain technology specifically. It is therefore hoped that the team can manage to attract qualified people with relevant experience who can drive the project forward from a technical perspective. Risks One question is whether the project will be able to attract the critical mass of users necessary to break-even with their running operating costs, given the low-revenue “freemium” business model that has been chosen for the platform. With that said, it is known that Talao’s predecessor, eMindHub, already has demonstrated an ability to attract users. However, whether this will be enough to cover the operating costs of the new platform remains to be seen -0.5 The team appears very strong from a traditional business development and management point of view, but may be somewhat lacking from a technical point of view, in particular when it comes to experience with Blockchain technology. -2 Growth Potential With both freelancers and employers dissatisfied with the service offered by current platforms, the freelancing marketplace industry appears ripe for disruption by blockchain technology. +2 The management team already has a strong background in the industry which is definitely an advantage. +2 Highly transparent company and team with all important details made publicly available, including the Articles of Association of the France-registered company behind the project. +3 The project appears thoroughly thought-out and well-explained both on the website and in the white paper. +3 Disposition The Talao project appears very well researched and though-out, with a strong team that has demonstrated their ability to carry out projects in the same industry in the past. A high degree of transparency from the team’s side adds to the legitimacy of this projects, and makes it stand out positively among the many low-quality ICOs that have been launched recently. We also like that the team has made the company’s Articles of Association public along with an explanation that rules out any potential conflict of interest between company shareholders and token holders. Overall, the case for Talao appears to be strong and we believe it deserves a score of 7.5 out of 10.

ICO ICO Analysis: IoTBlock Published 16 hours ago on December 13, 2018 By Daniel Won 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.

Continue Reading ICO ICO Analysis: EndChain Published 2 days ago on December 12, 2018 By Joshua Larson 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: 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. 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 Investment Details Symbol: ENCN Platform: Ethereum Total Supply: 135,576,931 For Sale: 74,567,312 (55% of total) Hard Cap: $15 million Soft Cap: $4 million Presale: December 1 – January 15 (50% bonus) Crowdsale: Feb 1 – April 30 (bonus ranging from 10-35%) Website: https://www.endchain.io Whitepaper: file:///C:/Users/tiang/AppData/Local/Packages/Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe/TempState/Downloads/1543145606EndChain+English+Whitepaper+Final+Version+11252018%20(1).pdf Telegram: https://t.me/EndChainIO Featured image courtesy of Shutterstock.

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.
