    3.0

    Advantages

    This a very convenient mechanism for the auto industry as they will realize more in terms of profit reruns simply because the cost of using middle men has been removed. Incentives being given to the early buyers inform of bonuses

    Risks and disadvantages

    Quite a number of auto retailers have big markets they are serving and despite the fact that they are centralized they still will be of great competition.

    Comments

    The business model has not been explored by many startups and therefor it is in a position where it can serstain itself in the market and also thrive with less competition.

    Advantages

    The website is available in 5 languages. It means that the project pays attention to investors from different countries. In addition, there are 2 versions of the Whitepaper: usual one and One Pager, where the main features are briefly outlined. What is more important is the MVP. Moreover, there are bonuses for early investors, which is also a pros.

    Risks and disadvantages

    Roadmap looks vague. It has only 1 period for 1 year, which is not enough.15 % of tokens are kept for the team. It would be better, if the index was less, so it would be difficult tom influence token rate on the market.

    Comments

    As the platform wants to connect buyers and car manufactures directly, there should be at least some agreements with them. However, there is no information about that o the website.

    Advantages

    The project has partners and cooperation with Volkswagen AG indicates that there is a real interest to the developed product. There is an attractive video presentation of the product. Smart contracts are developed in partnership with Microsoft Azure cloud solution.

    Risks and disadvantages

    From my point of view an important information is missing in the road map. The project should have a marketing plan.

    Comments

    The item about GAUS smart contracts is explained in detail. I think it is very important, because if businesses will be able to use the platform, if they will use it willingly depends on this thing most of all. Simple Smart Contract Management (SSCM) system functions will be developed to allow participants to integrate blockchain into their businesses' structure. The team also plans to integrate IoT and Machine Learning into smart contract's structure in order to enlarge capabilities of smart contracts beyond what was programmed into them. From my point of view this is a strong project, the team is ready to face competition.

    Advantages

    This will be such a prevelage as this process is not time consuming the CEO has tire and relation to prominent companies that can use this platform to offer services to their customers this will make engaging into the market much simple. The auto industry is very profitable because it is global with a ready and standing market.

    Risks and disadvantages

    I think the number of projects trying to bridge the gap between the sellers and buyers are quite many meaning that compotion thus gives these kinds of projects high risk of making it through crowd funding.

    Comments

    Compititve advantage will be the driving factor that will make Gaus prevail in the market. Because of the uncertainty anything can happen so those get g involved should keep a keen eye on the market changes.

    Advantages

    An additional token emission is not possible. Buy-and-burn mechanism is designed to decrease the amount of tokens in circulation. Budget allocation is reasonable.

    Risks and disadvantages

    In the case if the token becomes expensive and the price of the services becomes high, the company can sell part of the reserve fund tokens on an exchange. I think many investors can consider it as a disadvantage.

    Comments

    It is said that auto dealers can become part of the ecosystem, as some tasks can't be solved without their participation (test-drives for example). So the project aims to reduce the role of car dealers, not to eliminate the participation of intermediaries at all. Which is not an easy task, I think dealers will also offer their solutions. So it may become a fierce competition.
