Marketing and development have been taken care of in the token distribution and with such a move the progress is some what ensured. The press will do proper publications and communications to the prospective investors.
Risks and disadvantages
Some of the advisers are actively involved with other projects and they will deter them from being effectively relevant in guiding this project to achieve its goals this will bring about setbacks. it's not good to invest in projects that have only one cryptocurrency being used to exchange for the tokens.
The team should consider having a more detailed document which is shorter for example a white paper to make it easy for the investors to get well acquainted with the project.
A wide market has been targeted by the project and this will be of great value for the purpose of making the ventur very beneficial to the investors. For those looking forward to invest it is advisable for them to get involved with projects that have reserve tokens just like this one in particular.
Risks and disadvantages
Due to the inconsistency of the crypto market it is not advisable for the team to take long time to carry out some activities this is because over time policies change and this will affect the profitability
The success of the project also depends on the kind of investors involved in the project those who are committed to the cause will definitely see it to success while those that are after benefiting might contribute as much which might be a challenge.
Delicia has powerful marketing in terms of media coverage. Lots of news agencies have written reports about the project. There are also bonuses for people depending the time they invested in the pre-ICO or ICO.
Risks and disadvantages
There are only few members in the team which is not enough for platform development. The same is applied for advisors. Moreover, there is no information about partners. However, they should definitely take place, as the project focuses on food industry, and nothing mentioned about any restaurants, cafes, shops, etc. Roadmap has only 5 periods of platform development from 2018 to 2020. That is not enough to cover all aspects of the project.
The idea of connecting consumers and food retailers worldwide is great, however little has been done so far. Potential investors need to make sure that the team members have serious goals, not just raising funds.
Several advisers support the project. Publications in press are interesting and informative. The team engaged in a conversation with the United Nations and pursuing a collaborative agreement, though I found this information in press, neither the website nor the whitepaper doesn't present any information about this collaborating.
Risks and disadvantages
The project has no demo version of the product, no partnerships with restaurants and supermarkets.
There is a certain interest to the startup, it is rated by several companies. I'm curious about the project's future.
The platform will help to avoid food waste and bring affordable food to many people. Payments will be only made with DFT tokens, which means the demand for tokens will grow in this ecosystem.
Risks and disadvantages
The roadmap describes period, which starts since December 31, 2018. Whereas Pre-ICO starts in July 2018 and it's important to see the development plan for the period since July till December.
This is a good solution for restaurants and supermarkets. And those who starve will be fed. I think the project may even try to establish relationships with some municipal governments in order to solve the problem of food waste and at the same time to promote the product.
