141  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Market corrections are good on: July 03, 2018, 07:32:54 AM
Corrections always are good for market. Market is an alive one so current changes make it stronger, better and more universal.
142  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Are altcoins from bitcoin? on: July 03, 2018, 07:30:54 AM
BTC is the base of cryptomarket, but altcoins are connected with it. This symbiosis allows both of elements to increase and rise at all.
143  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Buy or Sell...??? on: July 03, 2018, 07:29:38 AM
Just buy and hold it as long as you can. It will be good way to have an income later and what is more you will be confident in everything.
144  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What should a person know and do who is going to become an investor? on: July 02, 2018, 07:03:52 AM
The person should know the main rules of market’s  development, features that will help him to make trends, and so on. I think so.
145  Economy / Speculation / Re: BTC is back ? is that good time to invest ? on: June 30, 2018, 07:44:20 AM
BTC is restoring so now it’s really time to invest if you want to get money from it. If you have an opportunity do it as soon as possible.
146  Economy / Speculation / Re: BTC is back ? is that good time to invest ? on: June 30, 2018, 07:43:13 AM
It seems to be in the nearest future, for 1-2 months. The market has started to restore recently so the price will increase soon as well.
147  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin is here to stay or ethereum overtakes in the market? on: June 29, 2018, 11:35:44 AM
In my opinion BTC will be the second one later as a background and ETH could take its place. But it will be possible not in the nearest time.
148  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Litecoin's future on: June 29, 2018, 11:25:18 AM
I think Litecoin will live because its current trends seem to be impressive. But I’m not sure that it will be as ETH.
149  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: RIPPLE OR LITECOIN on: June 28, 2018, 07:08:10 PM
Ripple is more promising as for me. It has a strong current position on cryptomarket and its predicions are quite confident.
150  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: I lost half of my crypto amount! what to do? on: June 28, 2018, 07:05:54 PM
You can do nothing I suppose. You should be more careful later and check every detail. I don’t see the other way.
151  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Do you panic? on: June 28, 2018, 07:04:35 PM
I don’t see reasons to panic here. Patience is the key to success. Just wait and prices will go to their aim.

ICO Analysis: SmartContainers
Published on June 21, 2018
By Daniel Won


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
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
LOGI CHAIN yet to be built. -0.5
Very small amount of tokens available to public compared to private and pre-sale investors. -0.4
Information on lock-ups or vesting vague at best (see “What is the vesting schedule for Team and Advisors token?”), -0.4
No max contribution information. This along with heavy token distribution to pre-sale and private investors is worrying. -0.4
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
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
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
Skycell is partnered with large carriers like Cargolux and Emirates, already giving it an in in the industry. +2
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.

153  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: ETH next to BTC? on: June 15, 2018, 01:20:14 PM
Ethereum has shown very good promise in the last quarter of 2017, so many people has expected that it would grow faster this year, but it has not been happened so far.

The Ethereum will cost 250 dollars, and then it will start to grow
154  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][ICO] AIRBLOC - decentralized advertisement data marketplace on: June 15, 2018, 12:52:52 PM
ICO Analysis: AIRBLOC
Published on June 14, 2018
By VlaSem


Inflation
Actually, I was bothered by the inflation concept, so I dug into inflation and AIR issuance.
inflation will work in two ways:
1) ABL mined by nodes through a POS which requires ABL and is set at 2.5% per annum with 10.9% decrease in yield.
2) Though conversion of AIR, which is also given to user as per their contribution and amount of AIR they have.
To get ABL tokens, you must:
    Buy at the exchange
    Receive reward from node
    Convert from AIR
In this sense, the procedure of AIR issuance is rather important. And for this AIRBLOC introduces a concept of AIR pool.
AIR pool will be a dynamic account, from which rewards will be given as per process described above. What is important is to understand how it is filled in the first place:
    10% of total supply of ABL goes to AIR pool to ensure liquidity.
    It is filled with trading fees, data usage rights fees paid by refineries and penalties for misbehavior.
Thus we see that issue of AIR is an ongoing process. But in order to hinder potential price dumps by AIR holders, conversion of AIR to ABL per hour is limited to 0.1% of AIR generated by the network.

Team
Roi Nam is the CEO and co-founder. He also served as CEO of ab180 (parent company) for two years.  He was engaged in web development for 1.5 years, as well as CSO for 1 year.
Wonkyung Lyu is the Dev Team Lead and co-founder. He is also co-founder in ab180.
Hunjae Jung serves as the project’s Back-end Part Lead and co-founder  and was also part of the founding team at ab180. Naeun Kim, Design Team Leader, rounds out the founding team at AIRBLOC.
The broader team is filled with developers and business professionals that are associated with ab180.
The advisory team includes JH Kim, who is also part of the ICON Foundation. He has almost 20 years of experience in the field of security, has experience in developing patented applications, such as the FCI protocol, has the CISA qualification, and is currently the director of Theloop.
Jason Han, who serves General Director of Kakao Blockchain, is also on the advisory team. He has served co-chairman and technical director of FuturePlay Tech VC.
Serial entrepreneur  Sungjae Hwang is also an adviser to the project. He is a partner of Futureplay, the initial high-speed accelerator in South Korea and the CEO of FoundationX. Prior to these companies, he founded several start-ups. He worked as the chief product officer in Fluenty Inc. and AI chatbot startup, which was acquired by Samsung Electronics in 2017.
Louis Jinhwa Kim, who previously served as Director of the Tide Institute Institute of Finance and Delegate of the Republic of Korea to the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (2012), is also on the team.

Partners include:
    GS SHOP, a leading online retail platform in Korea.
    Allbit, a new type of crypto exchange gateway. .
    FoundationX, one of the growing funds and accelerators of venture capital in Korea.
    VEAT, which is one of the leading law firms in Korea specializing in startup advisory services.
    ORANGEFARM, which is focused on incubating promising startups in Korea. ab180, the parent company AIRBLOC, was incubated in ORANGEFARM as early as 2017.
    SENTIENCE, one of the leading Korean research companies,.
    Deblock, an accelerator in Korea which is jointly invested by ICON Foundation & Ad4th Insight, a specialized block-chain company.
    Battle Entertainment, a leading comic platform in Korea, serving more than a million customers.
    Humanscape, a the leading medical platform for customer relationship management in Korea, which helps hospitals monitor the condition of patients after surgery and provide follow-up services to patients.
    Rainist, a leading Korean software company which provides recommendations for financial products based on lifestyle patterns.
    Fysical, the world’s first full-fledged, fully functional, decentralized market for location data.
    Indorse, a decentralized social network for professionals.

Verdict
A large team with extensive experience in the sector looks solid. The guys were able to attract consultants in areas where there are obvious gaps, as well as partners represented by ICON.

Risks
    Based on token sale ROI statistic, marketplaces and advertising related projects do not have a good performance in the short term. -1
    Customer attraction could face challenges. However, to offset this, the platform has developed a proprietary AirBloc Protocol SDK (software development kit) that has already been stress tested by 60 million devices in Korea. The SDK Protocol functions like a layer that can be easily implemented on top of apps, allowing acquisition of customers. -0.5
    Platform implementation and scaling could face difficulties, as Ethereum is not suitable for this. Therefore, AIRBLOC uses the hybrid-chain architecture that uses Ethereum and ICON. Data validation and the process will be done through Aero Network, which will use ICON. Such a combination seems promising; however, without a working MVP (planned to be in Q3 2018) it is hard to judge on its performance. -1
    There are ptential regulatory barriers in relation to private data protection laws, although the team looks prepared to handle it. -0.5
    I do not like the fact that private sale participants get 45%, even though 30% of 45% will be locked for 3 months as their overall part in the token distribution is rather high. -2
    The project involves a complex inflation model, which involves two tokens. -1

Growth Potential
    Mother company ab108 is already successful in advertising market analysis in Korea. +2
    Whitepaper and documentation are pretty good. +1
    The team is above average with many strong developers. +2
    A lot of strong partnerships like ICON and GS shop, Coinplug as well as several VCs. +2
    Token metrics and distribution are in a good range with a hard cap of 20,000 ETH (around $12 million). +2
    Strong token use case. +1
    A good growth strategy for user attraction. +1
    Hype is there (Telegram has 10,000+ members and lots of people are on the whitelist). +2

Disposition
This is definitely a project to look for. The team has all the necessary experience and knowledge for a successful execution. They leverage on their mother company ab108 and numerous partnerships. They have some obstacles in their way, but they have a clear plan how to overcome them. AIRBLOC receives 7 of 10.

This is very nice result (7.0/10)!
155  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Where do you find interesting ICO ? on: June 14, 2018, 05:27:42 PM
I find interesting projects on bitcointalk. I also follow the news from the band in Amazix telegram. I like the guys who work there, because they managed many good projects.
I choose campaigns on the rebel bountyhive.io and bounty0x.io
156  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Which coin now you think had a good future on: June 14, 2018, 05:13:11 PM
Ethereum is still the one for me in this past few years but something came in this era the RIPPLE it is actually profitable and in the near future for sure the ripple will be rising up and dominating other tokens in the markets hopefully I can still buy some of it in future.
I think ETH is thе соin nоw thаt hаs а grеаt futurе.
157  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: I do not believe ico anymore on: June 09, 2018, 01:10:56 PM

2. BEZOP
3. LEDU

158  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: With how much should i start on: June 09, 2018, 09:48:30 AM
Well, it depends on how rich you are. But you can start with minimum amount of 500 USD.
you can try to start with $ 200
159  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Alt coins worth buying on: June 08, 2018, 09:33:13 AM
I suggest everybody to buy Tron, Ripple, Ethereum, EOS
I think first choice is ethereum, the main reason is because ethereum is the next bitcoin and with ethereum we can easily invest ICO which mostly accept ETH.
about the EOS,  you do not need to forget Wink
160  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: I have 12 Bitcoin. What should I do??? on: June 08, 2018, 09:31:02 AM
Hold the Bitcoin 50% and other 50% invest in the altcoins from TOP10 - ETH, EOS, NEM, XLR
