Iskreno, ne znam koje bi prednosti ovog projekta naveo jer je sve to već toliko puta viđeno. Ako sam dobro shvatio projekt, to je zapravo Alibaba ali uz korištenje blockchain tehnologije.
Risks and disadvantages
Rizik su veliki popusti tijekom ICO faza (64% i 58%). Osim toga, ne sviđa mi se što nije naveden soft cap, a hard cap je prilično velik ($50.500.000) i stvarno sumnjam da će ga ostvariti.
Ne znam kako bi komentirao projekt. Možda ga nisam dovoljno dobro proučio, ali stvarno mi nije baš nešto...
One of the unique project out there! Good job! Fighting for equality of small retailers and people who want to succeed as an entrepreneur, this is great opportunity to make a difference in buisness world. Avoiding middle man as a stores and buying directly is perfect idea, team looks so great and whitepaper is legit!
Risks and disadvantages
I just afraid of bad marketing and pushing out this project to the bright daylight. I hope team can handle this so this project can see success!!!
Overall recommend to invest in this project, idea is unique and the team is great!
Team consists of experienced members with years of experience while working in different companies. Thus, there are people, responsible for the particular field: technical, legal and accouting. In addition, there are advisors and partners. Among the last ones, there are such big companies as Panasonic, Nescafe, Sony and others. Founders are active people, as they often participate in different conferences and forum promoting the platform.
Risks and disadvantages
Roadmap could be better outlined. It has little data about platform development. What is more important is the absence os the working product.
Overall, the project idea is great. There are also bonuses for people, who invested at the early stages of the crowdsale. For now, the only thing it needs is the MVP.
