ICO REVIEW – KINESIS (KVT)

Published

on

By

I. BUSINESS IDEAS

Kinesis is a digital currency, has its value based entirely on gold and silver. This project is a combination between Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Technology and allocated physical gold & silver, the greatest stable and definable stores of value for use in commercial and private transactions and investment. These digital coins (KAUs represents the gold-based coin and KAGs represents silver), can easily be spent at point of sale through the Kinesis debit card, allowing users to make fast and safe transactions. When KAU and KAG are transferred between holders the network collects a 0.45% fee that is then accumulated and distributed monthly, in varying proportions, to participants in the Kinesis Monetary System as a ‘yield’.

Kinesis was born to solve following issues:

  • Cryptocurrencies are frequently used for speculation and subject to a holding mentality, not used as a store of value or as a currency.
  • Precious metals and many other physical assets have no yield attached to them – they instead typically cost money to hold securely.
  • Slow speed of transactions and high, fixed processing fees limit the everyday use of existing cryptocurrencies.

How Kinesis overcome these issues:

  • An asset-backed digital currency combining blockchain technology with two of the greatest stable and definable stores of value: gold and silver.
  • A monetary system to give yield to these precious metals, incentivising their use and velocity by attaching multiple types of yield for varying degrees of passive or active participation.
  • A cryptocurrency with high processing speeds and percentage-based transaction fees attached to payment infrastructure allowing everyday use.

ICO REVIEW – DREP FOUNDATION

Published

on

By

I. BUSINESS IDEAS

Drep is a platform created with the ambition to digitize each person’s reputation and rank people based on those indexes.

People with higher indexes will have the strength of his or her vote in any poll, as well as being paid higher than those with lower reputation at the same job.

What Core Problem Does DREP Solve?

  • Polling and voting on the internet currently hasn’t had a mechanism to solve the problem with fake account, so, if a fake account’s vote and a prestigious person’s vote are the same, that will create many inaccurate and unfair voting results.
  • Unofficial, fake content published on the Internet is widespread and there is no mechanism to determine which articles are worth to read, to trust and which is not.
  • Users on a platform will be graded only on that platform, there hasn’t had any database that grading based on all behavior on the internet.

Drep solved those problems by building a platform on 3 main basis mechanisms:

  • Prestigious scoring mechanism.
  • Money making mechanism.
  • Reputation sharing mechanism.

Drep base on user interaction on the social networks, and then combined with its own rating formula to rank the reputation of each person.

Opponents: NO ONE

VI. CONCLUSION

  • Short Term: Neutral
  • Long Term: Neutral
  •  Analysis:

Drep’s idea is great, but grading everyone with their reputation is still an abstract concept, while Drep hasn’t released any demo/testnet yet. So, we are not sure this idea will be used widely by the users.

Except Matt, in overall, Drep’s founding team is young.

The beta test will be released in Q4/2018 so at least with an abstract idea like this, we can wait until to see how this platform really look like, then we can do more research and consider making the investment decision later.

VII. CONCLUSION

  • Short Term: Neutral (we are waiting for more information about token metrics)
  • Long Term: Good
  • Analysis:
    • Solana’s team reunites engineers who have years of experience in the field of engineering, worked in Qualcomm, Intel and other popular technology companies. Obviously, with such an experienced background, we can absolutely have hope for the development team to know what they want and what to do to create the product as desired.
    • Although MVP video hasn’t been updated yet, Solana’s Github has updated the source code and has full instructions on how to run the testnet with Single Node and MultiNode.
    • Solana has always following their road map until now. As long as Solana keeps up with the current schedule, they will have a complete blockchain platform before they start to sell their tokens (Q1/2019). This is a huge plus.
    • However, Solana hasn’t announced their plans to call and how much they need yet. Therefore, when Solana announces information about the token policy, we will re-evaluate to make a final statement.
