The project represents a cryptocurrency that based on distributed technologies, which allows you to make anonymous transactions and receive income. The system encrypts your transactions and uses it to create a proof of work. Data owners own tokens. Companies can use data to generate coins.
Risks and disadvantages
The project exactly repeats the idea that is used in many cryptocurrencies, particularly Dash and Monero, but unlike this project, anonymous cryptocurrencies have been in the market for several years, they are used by millions of people and their capitalization is close to a billion dollars.
I'm not sure that this project can be successful, apart from repeating many ideas and high competition in this area, the team doesn't give a right assessment of the situation. Anonymous transactions are good for darknet, and in ordinary life, everyone is trying to make translations as transparent as possible, with the compulsory identification of the payer.
The concept of proving data is necessary especially to deal with the current situations of increased fraud and scammers on the internet. it will provide effective research for those sourcing for data on the internet and also benefit to the community members through receiving tokens. The budget is well distributed.
Risks and disadvantages
The project is not well known on the social media platforms for example o n facebook the following is not promising at all, a conclusion can be drawn that the message being passed on by the team on these media platforms is not being productive or reaching the intended recipients. Investors might be reluctant on investing because of the limited value of the EPT token
The project should consider using video content to share with the prospective investors a graphical and an illustrative information concerning the project, this act shall save on their time on trying to understand the dynamics of the project and focus on viewing the documented papers for example the white paper. More people need to be invited to join these social media groups so that the purpose for which they were formed can be fulfilled.
The project has publications in press, good video content. The service is co-developed with Microsoft UK. It is intended for use by large enterprises.
Risks and disadvantages
Founders, team and advisors own 20% of tokens, only 25% tokens will be offered for crowdsale.
I expect that this project will be more successful than other projects with similar ideas. And it has a huge potential for growth.
Informative, clear description of the offer, solved problems for the consumer, the market. A wide range of users, potentially interested in the product.
Clear vision of the platform's scalability, growth and development of supply.
Risks and disadvantages
Every time I see the word "Unhackable" in the presentation - it makes me squint suspiciously.
Very few tokens are allocated to the initial crowdsdale. Most of it is reserved for future utility use. It reduces the potential for the growth of the price of the token, its deficit. Good for users. Bad for investors.
The problem posed by the project is really acute and relevant to the current market. People are ready to pay for verification and confirmation of data. So for investors it can be interesting – in the case the platform is really well implemented.
And judging by the white paper, the team clearly sees the algorithms of the solution, and these schemes look reliable and expedient.
The platform provides service for companies, individuals and even governments. This project has a strong team, the service will be launched in UK soon.
Risks and disadvantages
It would be useful to see more detailed roadmap.
I think the realization of this project is very difficult. Because all the evidences (data from individuals, companies, manufacturers, medical organizations etc.) should be stored on this platform first. And it is a very long process.
What is Evident Proof?
Evident Proof is an Ethereum blockchain and token-based service designed to meet the ever-increasing need for efficient, secure and immutable data verification, provenance and proof services. Businesses can use Evident Proof to verify their operational activities, prove provenance and product quality, provide evidence of compliance, better manage risk, and more. Individuals can take control of their own data by using the Evident Proof service to proof chain personal activities and information. This will allow them to manage who sees their data, and when. The Evident Proof solution transforms current corruptible methods of storing data by using immutable proof chains on blockchain. It delivers proof certificates that cannot be destroyed or hacked, and a new way of creating value from your data.
What problem does Evident Proof's platform solve?
The amount of data in the world is growing exponentially, and organisations and individuals globally are increasingly required to justify and verify their data activities. As more compliance standards emerge worldwide, and existing requirements become more stringent, the Evident platform will help fulfil data compliance and verification obligations and provide proof of provenance, identity and other business and personal data.
Why did you put your whitepaper through IPO Level Verification?
We are working hard to establish and develop the Evident Proof business, and want to ensure that our working practices are consistent with those our clients and partners would expect and value, and to set us up to be the long-term business we aim to be. We also believe that improving the perception of fundraising methods in this space is critical. So we engaged CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang LLP as our legal advisor to advise on the verification of the statements in the Evident Proof whitepaper and to carry out an IPO level verification process with the directors of the company.
How will the technology work?
When digital records, such as data transactions, events and documents, are delivered to the platform, it creates a unique signature – a seal - for each. It stores these seals in an immutable ledger, called a proof chain, which consists of both a private and a public blockchain to ensure immutability. A receipt and token for each seal successfully added to the proof chain is sent to the service user. The receipt is the key to invoking the use of an associated seal in a proof certificate request, while the token (or fraction of a token) gives the service user, or a third party, permission to request proof certificates in future. The proof certificate is a report that verifies the correctness, completeness and time-order of digital records submitted as evidence. When proof or verification is required, the service user submits a proof request. Evident compares the proof request data with seals held on the private blockchain and generates the proof certificate, which indicates if there is any difference between the original records and the seals. The information on the proof certificate can be further verified on the public blockchain.
Why did you decide to use blockchain?
One of the critical features of the Evident Proof service is immutability. Manufacturers, regulators, courts, other entities and individuals that require evidence must be able to trust that it is complete, accurate and unchanged. This can only be achieved by using blockchain to record transactions. Our proof chain consists of two blockchains. The public blockchain serves as a system for scrutiny and trust in the log of evidence seals and a private blockchain for speed and a secondary level of verification.
What does the token do?
Evident Proof tokens are utility tokens generated only when data is stored on the platform. They are the property of the data owners and can be used to: pay fees for storing digital records on the platform, give the data owner, or a third party, permission to request proof certificates in future, and request evidence in the form of a proof certificate.
How experienced is the team behind Evident Proof?
The founders of Evident are Adrian Clarke (ex-Microsoft UK CTO), Dr James Anderson and Dr Ken Boness. Adrian Clarke and Matt Roden are co-founders of Berkshire Cloud Ltd, the company that has developed the Evident service platform. Berkshire Cloud Ltd is trusted to supply software development services to large multinationals such as Microsoft, and has in-depth experience in building and deploying large multinational/multi language software platforms. The management team behind Evident has a track record of planning, building and delivering large cross-border software solutions. We have brought this experience to bear in creating a live Evident platform. The team is supported by several highly experienced advisors and entrepreneurs in commercial strategy, business management, accountancy, sales, marketing and technical evangelism from a range of areas including financial services, blockchain technology, IT software and cloud services.
