• This product is mostly interested for SME, which is not the biggest players on loyalty programs.

Product
N/A
Team

• The company was founded by two brothers without enough previous experience.

• Only 2 developers are non-remote.

Model

• There are no initiatives to pay for creating own brand tokens by QBX tokens. It is better to pay in fiat money.

• The opportunity to exchange brand loyal tokens for another brand loyal tokens or fiat money makes such brand loyal tokens useless.

Finance

• On the one hand, the product is ready, on the other, 49% of funds would be allocated to further product development.

• Huge difference between seed, private and public sale - investors are in unequal conditions.

- Competition in the sphere of scalable dApp-protocols is more severe than in others, so it has to be taken into consideration.

- The existing blockchains, though not as scalable as AERGO might become, still have first-mover advantage and might be better off if they introduce scalability features, such as Lightning network, Sharding, Plasma, State Channels.

Product

- Technical paper and smart contract links are missing.

- There is no link to Github.

Team

- The team is scattered across different time zones. They are located in London, South Korea, Hong Kong, and New York.

- Several team members are still employed at Blocko, according to their LinkedIn pages.

Model

Finance

- AERGO will sell only 30% of the tokens. Therefore, most of the tokens will be centralized in the project.

- The high competition in the filed os decentralized storage platforms might be a downside for Lightstreams development.

Product

- There is no link to GitHub to validate the product development.

- The testnet is only expected in Q1 2019. By then, the competing projects will already have their mainnets in operation for a while.

Team

- None of the team members gives the links to their LinkedIn profiles.

- Some of the team members do not claim Lambda as a workplace on LinkedIn.

- There are no people with blockchain experience.

Model

- Lambda will use basic Proof of Work consensus mechanism.

Finance

- The project valuation of $80M seems too high.

- Lambda will sell only 30% of the tokens.

- High competition in the sphere of smart-contracts development tools.

- The most successful ICOs in this field were launched back in 2016 i.e. have early mover advantages.

Product

- Testnet is not available yet.

- The motivation for the customers to issue tokens on Emotiq platform and not somewhere else is unclear.

- The development of a proprietary programming language - Ring - may not be adopted by communities.

Team

- The team members are located in Moscow, Zug, Tucson, Mexico, Los Angeles, and Toronto.

- David McClain does not have any experience except Emotiq mentioned on his Linkedin page.

Model

- Now there is not enough information available on the business model of the platform.

- Token economics is not given in a detailed manner.

Finance

- The unsold tokens will be kept in reserve by Emotiq, to be used for future funding needs.

- Post-ICO valuation will be equal to $120M which seems extremely expensive.

- There is no information on the use of proceeds.

There are several Blockchain projects that do not have the same features as Origin Protocol but aim to create similar products and already gained public attention and raised money, such as District0x and Openbazar. District0x, which creates a network of decentralized markets and communities, has already raised 10M USD during ICO last August. The market of protocols seems to be heavily dependent on the "first-mover advantage", as the protocols will grow faster if they are unified and comply with the current solutions on the market.

Product

The team aims to create a complex product which requires vast amount of resources. That is why the feasibility of all the proposed features is unclear. Origin Protocol will have to compete with large, established marketplaces across different industries. It is unclear if the team will be able to scale the project so that it will be possible to compete with companies like Airbnb, Fiverr or Uber. Origin aims to expand its services globally but does not focus on any particular markets. As the prices will be shown in fiat currencies but will be paid in crypto, which is way more volatile than the former one, it may lead to price differences. This can harm the customer experience. The given roadmap is not enough detailed and only highlights some of the product development stages.

Team

The team is spread between Colorado and California.

Model

As the platform will require participants to deposit small amounts of token before creating a new listing or user profile, it might lower the attractiveness of the platform for the early users. As the users might be penalized if they falsely challenge legitimate listings or accounts, it may also decrease the attractiveness of the platform. There is no information on how Origin Protocol will earn its money, so the commercial viability of the platform is not clear.
