Finance
Market

- High competition between stable coins

- Market glut of crypto projects, product doesn’t meet real business’ demand which is going to be the main driver in the industry

- Bad timing for further products (Decentralized Phase & Independent phase): Gartner Hype Cycle

Product

- Sharp decrease of collateral value – no dividends for share token holders

- Bad valuation for Share token – lack of demand

- The absence of exact product view – potential pivot (usual for startups)

Team

- Bloated staff (might be too big team for startup, but not critical)

- The absence of experienced portfolio managers, which is important for their collateral part of business

Model

- Potential losing of money from bad investment in collateral

- The model tries to be less dependent on technology, than competitors' ones - that is the problem many new projects try to overcome - as a good stablecoin must avoid human intervention

Finance

- High valuation, according to gossips (over 50M USD)

Market

At the current moment beyond the “crypto-hype” people looking with doubt to such global blockchain projects, the number of people who looking forward for large platforms sharply decreased. Also, main law and technological problems aren’t solved – Visa and MasterCard are still better and all countries have their specific view on blockchain-technology. Another risk – the absence of competitive advantages. Volatility on the crypto-market.

Product

The main risk is presence of some technological imperfections, product is global and it is crucial to be available to service all your clients qualitatively. Also, we can’t determine their product, descriptions are too abstract, they want to build something global but it’s unclear what is their exact product.

Team

Team isn’t very big and we can’t find any outstanding experience. If their product would be successful they will meet need to hire more people.

Model

Their business model relates to the number of users (community) and token popularity which makes it sensitive to the market and product risks

Finance

They aren’t going to take fees from their users which isn’t okay for future cash inflows. Lack of description of their token further functions, which hinder to valuate this token.

Market

- The project enters a practically monopolized market.

- ICANN is the only way to create a top-level domain right now. The entire market belongs to this organization.

Product

- For wide distribution, the project needs implementation in large corporations and obtaining legal status in various jurisdictions.

Team

- The team consists only of developers, no business representatives.
- The central organization does not exist.
- The legal component of the project is not clear.

Model

- It is not clear whether large corporations and organizations will agree to move to the auction system.
- It is difficult to predict how such a technology will be taken by governments and ICANN, created by the US government.
- Legal issues are not covered. The project could face pressure or prohibition from centralized bodies such as ICANN and governments of different countries.

Finance

- $ 136 million of initial capitalization, which may lead to a strong fall in prices at the initial stage, in case of early listing.

- Experimental distribution system. It may turn out to be a strong point of the project or a trap for the project because it is very difficult to imagine how the network will be managed.

None of current DEXs have solved the main technical problem – low speed and liquidity.

The other problem is advantages of larges exchanges, which have huge number of users and it is easier for them to create a decentralized network.

In addition, there is a big law risk – SEC has not approved current DEXs, nut USA is the biggest market for such platforms. The situation is that the first good project is going to win the competition and capture the market. 

Product

Now Ferrum is developing two main products – DEX and wallet. Both of the products have many other already existing analogues.

Team

There are 8 people and 5 advisors. Half of a team are from investment funds and the other half has some technical background. There is one important moment – most of the founders haven’t changed their main workplace in LinkedIn.

Model

Ferrum Network has strategic partners - TLG Ventures, KOSMOS, Token Research Group. Some of their team members represent these funds.

Finance

Ferrum’s business and token’s cost fully depend on the number of users. During the communication with the team, they have mentioned that their main market is USA, but it is still big legal risk with American jurisdiction. In addition, business is built on cryptocurrency market and if it is going to fail this project will be unclaimed.
