    Advantages

    ZED network is designed as a friendly solution that allows money transfer operators to use the leading blockchain technology to scale business rapidly. ZED offers the platform as a service which built on a distributed book that is designed to reduce transaction costs for small and medium-sized enterprises that can't compete effectively with larger ones due to problems with banking, technological and cash. ZED Network tries to eliminate dependence on banks in favor of a global and distributed network of licensed money transfer operators to create a faster, cheaper and more transparent network of money transfer.

    Risks and disadvantages

    A relevant and very necessary solution for creating a global network of money transfers with minimal costs. However, there are a number of issues raise immediately, which have already been raised earlier. First of all, who will license this activity and to issue permits for work, who can guarantee the stability of the token's price, with the help of which all operations in the system will be implemented, etc.

    Comments

    I think this project is very interesting, but it's not developed completely. There are many inconsistencies and incoherence that can scare off experienced investors, all the more, such kind of goals is set by a large number of projects, which means the highest competition in this segment of the business.

    Advantages

    Several strong partners and advisers support the project. The team has posted on their Twitter account recently, that multi-sig ZED wallets for Sender MTO and Receiver MTO are created and tested.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The roadmap is missing, activity on social media is quite low, there is no video presentation in English.

    Comments

    Creating a network of small to mid-sized licensed money transfer operators around the world is a proper solution for providing secure and quick service. Many publications in press is a good sign, which indicates that the team is determined to achieve their goals. But several improvements should be done.

    Advantages

    The idea is good and quite simple, considering the problem is not new. Another good point is a source code published for the community members which allows assessing a technical side of the project.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The first thing which looks odd is the source code accessibility, what's the point to publish that openly if that's restricted to the public?
    The white paper structure and the appearance could be significantly improved at it has a lot of impact on investors.

    Comments

    One more interesting remittance project which needs some attention from the organisational perspective.

    Advantages

    The project aims to create a faster, cheaper and more transparent money transfer network. Zed will eliminate dependency on banks, so MTOs will be able to grow and scale their business.

    Risks and disadvantages

    Discounts offered during Pre-ICO will attract investors, but it also will create a possibility to earn by selling tokens after ICO ends and then token`s price may fall.

    Comments

    In most of the cases small MTOs are constantly under the threat of losing their relationship with banks. So they spent their limited resources on supporting those relationships rather than on development. Zed will offer a friendly solution to MTOs. It will be a mutually profitable cooperation for both Zed and MTOs. So I think the team should develop their ideas and their vision.

    Advantages

    Its advisable to invest in a variety of currencies and this has been made possible by zed so it can be marked as a big step towards its first development. With the current press team involved the startup will receive media attention and in the long run get interested individuals to follow up.

    Risks and disadvantages

    Information about the locking of tokens should be provided because this helps to determine the relevance of the token economy and future preparedness for financial setback.

    Comments

    Priority should be given to the investors by considering the key aspects that will make them increase their investments and make them profitable at the same time. Transfer of money across different platforms has become a necessity and the available market is large.

    Advantages

    On the part of the investors this can be regarded as a short term investment because the bonus tokens can be sold to the available market by the investors after the token is put on the exchange.

    Risks and disadvantages

    bonus tokens above the percentage of 50% will affect the token in the long run, its value will diminish due to increased circulation in the market. The way in which the road map has been presented its not well elaborate and will affect the progress.

    Comments

    Incentives in form of bounty tokens should be used to make many people know about the project especially on social media because digital advertising has more impact. The team should have a well designed way forward for the project to work out.

    Advantages

    Zed offers a product that will have a low cost of operation will be instantaneous, which is dope. Clear Marketing and Business plan. There is a line up of advisors. Established partnerships. Zed has all the channels to keep followers updated.

    Risks and disadvantages

    No prices for the token sales. No Roadmap. There aren't Team members' Linkedin profiles. Very poor Website. Only 5% of Fund Allocation adds up to Marketing. Community/Media numbers leave much to be desired.

    Comments

    Overall, the project's idea and its Business Plan look good, but at the same time the company is still pretty new and there is a lot of information lacking about the Pre-ICO, ICO
