    Advantages

    The project represents a platform where decentralized investment funds can be located. Subscriber's funds will be equipped with a full set of necessary instruments for managing portfolios with full reporting and transparency. Investors use Nousprotocol to make an acquisition or disposal deal with stock funds. One of the main advantages of Nousprotocol for open-end funds is the ability to buy shares from investors through Nous Tokens, which owned by the fund in portfolio reserves. In addition, Nousprotocol can be used to create closed-end funds and alternative assets funds, such as venture capital, real estate or direct investment funds.

    Risks and disadvantages

    At the moment, the idea of decentralization can be good only in theory. The concept worked out badly in practice and because this kind of startups always have problems. Especially when it comes to fundraising and working on foreign and debt capital.

    Comments

    I think that the project is unlikely would be able to realize itself for many reasons. First of all, there is a very high competition in this business segment and there are already a lot of companies that offer similar services and also, there is no clear description of the criteria: how investors' portfolios will be created, there is no prototype of the functioning system and any statistics on the rate of return indicators.

    Advantages

    The team is very active. It takes part in numerous conferences and forums related to Blockchain. Thus there are experienced advisors and well-known partners. Among them there are such popular startups as Bancor and Civic. Marketing side is also powerful. The project is represented on different social networks as

    Risks and disadvantages

    There is no alpha or demo version of the platform. Roadmap is described in quarters. I wish it would be more precise to dates.

    Comments

    The project possesses itself as an investing fund. However, there are dozens of similar ones on the market, and there are no guarantees, that this one will not deceive its investors. There is always a risk when money are sent to mediators.

    Advantages

    The team informs us that token's value is not associated with speculations or opinions of future value, it will only depend on the demand. This startup participated in many blockchain related events and has informative publications in press.

    Risks and disadvantages

    There are 26966 people who like Nous's account on Facebook, but publications never have more than 250 likes, which means the rest 26700 followers are permanently inactive.

    Comments

    It's an interesting startup. But I would prefer to have more explanations why offered solutions will be better for fund managers and investors than the existing ones.

    Advantages

    Indicators of success such as reserve tokens marketing and the token economy in general have been observed and this will makes the profitability of the project higher. A variety of currencies are accepted and this is to the projects advantage.

    Risks and disadvantages

    Not giving out bonuses to the early buyers at the ICO shall hinder the coming of as many investors as expected s as tpo cover the desired hard cap to complete the crowdfunding.

    Comments

    The Success of the crowd funding does not guarantee the success of the project because investor can decide to sell of their tokens or the road map might fail to be effectively be implemented so follow up activities should be made.

    Advantages

    Fund managers will have a complete set of tools for managing their funds and interacting with investors. Beta version is promised to be released in about a month. As we can read in the Whitepaper the marketplace for the Nousplatform is potentially astronomical in volume.

    Risks and disadvantages

    Advisors’ tokens will be restricted for 30 days. I think it`s a very short space of time.

    Comments

    Hedge funds, banks, institutional investors, private investment funds, family trusts and venture capital funds are supposed to be interested in using the platform. It would be useful to know if there are fund managers or investors, who are already interested in using Nousplatform`s services. I didn`t find any testimonies.

    Advantages

    The project has a reliable press team and its public image which is important will be built and protected. The website of the project is well designed and user friendly so the interested members will be able to access the information they need easily.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The bonuses being given out are quite low compared to other ICO projects therefore less investors will be attached to the project.

    Comments

    The tokenistion economy is very important in the success of the project and at the look of things nous has made a priority to ensure this aspect is prioritized.

    Advantages

    One of the Nous ICO’s strengths is its team which is stacked with top-level talent with years of relevant experience in Business Development, Management Experience, Investment Management Experience and Real Estate. Their line up of advisors is just as high-powered. . The website and white-paper are well presented and clear, and the inclusion of a light-paper is always welcomed by potential investors trying to get a quick overview. Press Coverage. The Team is actively participating in Conferences. Good balance of Token distribution. Nous has all the social platforms to keep followers updated.

    Risks and disadvantages

    On the downside there is perhaps a lack of buzz . Twitter numbers are decent but not spectacular. However, with more than a week weeks to go before the only Pre-ICO we should expect interest to increase. 

    Comments

    To sum up, the project is likely to be a stable, reliable and transparent and set to take over the market.

    Why people are purchasing NOUSTOKEN?

    A NOUSTOKEN is not just another digital currency; it is a utility NOUSTOKEN rument for purchasing equity shares of every investment fund on Nousplatform. In other words, the more NOUSTOKEN you acquire now, the more equity shares or ETF you will have in your portfolio. It is the first precedent in history, when early investors get much more favorable terms for the acquisition of equity shares.

    What the future holds for the value of NOUSTOKEN?

    In our opinion NOUSTOKEN have an enormous potential. Its value will rise with the launch of the Nousplatform. And their value will continue to rise as more investors will be actively participating in the investment funds based on Nousplatform. And the value of NOUSTOKEN will climb higher when new investment funds will be established and managed on Nousplatform.

    What is the financial basis for this phenomenon?

    In this case with NOUSTOKEN, its value is not associated with speculations or opinions of future value. As soon as Nousplatform will be listed as one of the top investment funds in the ratings, more investors will be drawn to invest. In order to invest they will need to purchase NOUSTOKEN. It will create a demand for the NOUSTOKEN. The formula is simple: the higher the demand, the more expensive the supply.

    How are NOUSTOKEN, equity shares, and ETF stored?

    All of the assets above are ERC20 tokens and will be stored in a “cold” wallet that can only be accessed through a private key. Important: The Investment funds or Nousplatform do not store the private key of the investor and does not have access to the investor’s wallet.

    This will be possible through Bancor protocol. Your ERC20 tokens will be stored as a reserve for NOUSTOKEN. It will eliminate the commissions and fees for purchasing NOUSTOKEN.

Then the system analyzes this data and establishes a rating list based on the fund’s performance. This feature helps to build an investor’s confidence in the fund: the so-called Trust Level, which is also a factor for the ratings. At the TOP of the list, investors will see the most profitable funds that can be trusted.
