Сomprehensive whitepaper with a profound research on the market opportunity and all the explanations of the product. Team leaders is composed of blockchain industry developers and businesspeople who have a vast experience in this sector. The project is backed up by a few venture capitalists. Good website. The projects have all the media channels to keep followers updated. Detailed roadmap. The company already owns approved patents for the systems and algorithms. A bunch of documentation are provided on the website. Great Press Coverage.
Risks and disadvantages
No social links to Team members. The rest of the team does not have any background.
Overall, the project is good and I think ShoCoin is to reach its hard cap in no time.
