    Advantages

    The stabilization fund will be created to minimize large fluctuations in value, for example if demand for token slumps, then the fund will be used to purchase token and maintain its price. The first Sale Admin who joins Blinked when it is released generated $16 million in advertising revenue in 2017. So if he initiates the advertising sales process on the platform successfully, then more users will wish to join.

    Risks and disadvantages

    I have questions about budget allocation. There should be some explanations about use of funds. It's not clear what part of the budget will be allocated for product development.

    Comments

    If the project presents an MVP and a more elaborated version of the roadmap, chances to succeed will increase significantly, since it has a reliable idea and a good presentation.

    Advantages

    The founder is a successful entrepreneur with great experience. She was a guest speaker at well-known companies, I think she values her reputation and only says about the things that are already delivered or will be. There is a lot of relevant content on Twitter feed.

    Risks and disadvantages

    I'd like to know if the startup has a marketing team. This business idea is interesting only if there is a sound marketing plan, which would be executed by experienced marketing specialists. I give a credit to founder's experience, but she cannot run a marketing campaign on her own.

    Comments

    It is an attractive project with a sound business model. I like this team and I believe they know how to achieve the goals. My biggest concern is about discounting during pre-sale. As effective as it is to achieve ico goals, I find it risky.

    Advantages

    Parties on both end are to greatly benefit from the bargain this is so because they are earning a percentage of the advertising fees. Crowd funding will be done with in a very short time because the tokens to be sold are of a less percentage. In addition the market reserve has a large number of tokens which guarantees solid backup financially for the start up.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The press involved are appreciated but will not be reliable enough to satisfy the work load in their midst so a more intense and reliable team is required. Hesitating to provide information about the advisors will bring about questioning of there capabilities.

    Comments

    In organizing the project alot of skill and commitment by the founder members and there efforts will pay off.

    Advantages

    There are bonuses for early investors, which serves a good motivation. In addition, people can take part in the tokensale with Bitcoin and ''fiat'' as well, besides regular Ethereum.

    Risks and disadvantages

    Most of tokens from budget allocation are kept for the reserve. That is not the way it should be. As a result, founders and advisors can influence token price, when it enters the market. On the website is written, that MVP is ready. However, there is no button to check platform functionality. In addition, nothing mentioned about partners. Thus, Roadmap has no data after 2018. It seams that platform is supposed to operate only till the end of 2018. Moreover, there are not so lots of social media platforms. No Bitcointalk thread or Youtube channel.

    Comments

    In conclusion, I would not recommend the following ICO for investing. It looks that the team is running the crowdsale just to raise money, without willing of platform development.
