An exciting project which surrounded by progressive technologies with high potential considering the market development. Another key thing is an excellent platform and App-Features which allows assessing the solution and its potential.
Risks and disadvantages
The main risk is an implementation piece which needs to be very well done in order to make a smooth working product.
A great project which is underestimated and also is run by an experienced team, I trust this will find a lot of customers.
The project has community of about 73000 followers on its Twitter account and every post has 100 - 200 and more likes. Tokens allocated to the team, founders and reserve pool will be engaged in a lockup period (1 year). As long as no new tokens will be created, on-boarding merchants will have to buy ARAW tokens from token holders in order to join the community.
Risks and disadvantages
An informative and elaborated roadmap is a good way to show that a team has a clear strategy. I don't think that this roadmap is the best version of what this team is able to present.
The project is highly rated by several rating companies. The team already has a working product, that has been implemented without blockchain support and now they intend to develop and expand the existing platform to the Ethereum Blockchain.
The project pays high attention to the documents of the project. There are several types of Whitepaper: regular one, One Pager, Pitch Desk. They also available in other languages on Github. A significant advantage is the working MVP, a demo version, users can try demo version and check its functionality.
Risks and disadvantages
15 % of tokens are ket for the reserve pool. That is too much, in terms of possible token manipulation on the market. It would be also better if the project accepts other ways of payment, except regular Ethereum.
The market definitely needs such project, where the payment system, one token, card is combined into one system. It is noticed, that the team is running ICO to develop the platform and not just to raise funds. Overall, I recommend the following project for investing.
Detailed statistics will be given to merchants, so businesses will be able to understand customer's behavior and to plan their short and long term business goals. This solution will help to attract more retailers and merchants. Unified reward system is designed for users to be able to redeem tokens earned from one merchant to purchase items from another merchant.
Risks and disadvantages
According to the information in the Whitepaper a coalition of supportive
merchants is already built. I think it's a great advantage compared to other projects. But disadvantage is that this very important information is not presented in details.
It is expected that merchants will be left with no choice, but to be part of the growing blockchain economy in the near future. I think this project has a good chance to become a leader in this sphere.
Brilliant idea! Great team of professionals with links to their websites. Well-thought website. White paper is translated to a bunch of languages. Well-planned, neat Business Paper. Clear Business strategy and Roadmap. MVP. Community/Media numbers are good.
Risks and disadvantages
Araw definitely looks like the project that will have a bright future. No doubt, investors should consider this opportunity.
