1. The project is an AI-oriented market, offering real-time solutions for retailers, manufacturers and consumers. OSA Decentralized (OSA DC) means creating value for consumers, retailers and manufacturers through digital services based on AI.
Founded in 2015, OSA is already a successful permanent company. We provide services for the world's leading manufacturers and retailers of consumer products, including Coca-Cola, Mars, L'Oreal, Nestle, Metro Cash & Carry and many others. These services are deployed on the OSA Hybrid Platform, a large AI-based data platform that manages the optimal availability of stores in real time.
Risks and disadvantages
I found some inconsistencies in the description of the project, dates and cooperation with large companies. The first decentralized organizations began their work in late 2016, and if such large companies as Coca-Cola and others used such solutions, it would be widely advertised in the press and we would know about it.
I think that despite some inconsistencies and disadvantages, this project can become successful and get the recognition of consumers. This project has a very good and well-developed concept, which in the future should bring very high dividends.
While entering the website, one can mention at once, that it is translated into several other languages. It signifies the global scale of the project. Among partners there are such big companies as Danone, Metro, CocaCola. They already use the service of OSA decentralized.
Risks and disadvantages
I would like to see the Roadmap more precise, as there are no concrete dates, only quarters. In addition, there is no direct link on the working product. At least it is not mentioned on the website.
I consider the following ICO as one, that has big plans. Because it already partnered with such big players in the industry of retail as L'Oreal, Pepsico and others. Thus, the team is active on the media and do not hesitate informing people about its platform on different conferences.
Platform`s services would be very useful for retailers, manufacturers and consumers. The project aims to create AI which will be able to develop a diet for each person in the world and provide a preventive health protection.
Risks and disadvantages
This project is difficult to realize. Many offices are planned to be established. A lot of work is planned to be done during 2019, I think the Market Expansion Roadmap for 2019 shoud be much more detailed. Tokens for secured fund, team and advisors will be locked up for 12 months, I think it shoud be locked up for a longer period.
This is a promising project. A lot of work is already done. And still, it will be difficult to realize all the plans.
With the high levels of volatility of the market the ove to accept a number of cryptocurrencies secures the tokens value through making it distributed. A decentralized system is very reliable and privacy from third party corruption is guarded against. The number of individuals employed will be able to serve the existing market effectively.
Risks and disadvantages
Doubt will be created when the platform fails to assure the community members of profitable trades in the market and in this way it will lose its popularity.
The team is very important in establishment of the project and the people that invest are another contributing factor because it will depend on the to thrive so very committed people need to be placed for these positions.
The project already has clients in retail and partners. The team participates in blockchain events and there are interesting publications in press. Manufacturers will be interested in raising product's rating, which will also lead to raising of ingredients quality.
Risks and disadvantages
As long as this project has working platform and clients and partners, I expected for it to have bigger communities on social networks.
OSA Hybrid platform already provides services to retailers and manufacturers in 20 countries and generates revenue. And the team already got 4,2 million $ donations for the development of the platform. So this project has potential for development and growth.
It's seen that there has been initial success in the tracatin that has been demonstrated earlier by the team and their for this instills confidence in the potential investors and assurance that the people are capable of winning.
Risks and disadvantages
When a particular project doesn't have a press team their is expected a setback in achieving the necessary targets for example awareness and the communication between the project and the prospected market base.
Offering the investors incentives is very crucial especially at a time like this because the competition is high those offering discounts to the early investors usually get there set targets of hard cap covered.
