Whitestone Gallery Hong Kong announced to conduct ICO for the construction of Art Trading Platform.

Art Trading Platform by Blockchain

By using funds raised by ICO, a distributed appraised art trading platform will be built by using blockchain technology.

Distributed appraised art trading platform is to bring interactions among artists, art lovers, galleries, auction houses, art colleges, art critics, collectors, etc. such as viewing and appreciating each other’s artworks It is a network that enables people to interact and realize an environment where many people can become familiar with art, as well as enabling their trading and settlement.

In addition, it will be a place to invest in works of artists whose evaluations are lagging internationally and to introduce excellent art to the world simultaneously. On the existing art trading platform, middle agents charge a high transaction fee to both the seller and the collector. This platform provides services that are impossible to achieve with existing trading systems such as smoothing transactions and further reducing fees.

Also, we plan to offer appraised art by linking biometrics such as fingerprints with secret keys by blockchain. With this system, the genuine problem will be solved.

WePower is launching blockchain and smart contracts powered green energy trading platform where everyone can buy, trade or invest in tokenised green energy.

WePower is a blockchain-based green energy trading platform. It enables renewable energy producers to raise capital by issuing their own energy tokens. These tokens represent energy they commit to produce and deliver. As a result energy producers can trade directly with the green energy buyers (consumers and investors) and raise capital by selling energy upfront, at below market rates.

The technology team is led by Kaspar Kaarlep, former CTO of Elektrilevi, he and his team are the ones who built the Estonian Smart Grid infrastructure over the past 10 years. The team that Kaspar assembled for WePower has vast experience in building information systems in the energy space. Given their experience working directly with and for utilities, this team is uniquely placed to be able to intimately understand the challenges presented by today’s changing energy landscape and how specific technologies are impacting it.

WePower is currently launching a pilot project with Elering, Estonian transmission system operator, with the goal of building a proof-of-concept for recording a nation-state scale of consumption and production data on the ethereum blockchain. This will be a first of its kind enabling the global blockchain powered energy market to take its first steps towards reality. WePower is leveraging Estonia’s existing advanced smart grid, particularly the 100% smart meter coverage with hourly reading and a central data hub with a data exchange layer for transparent 3rd party access. These are the ideal technical conditions to test the true scalability for our technology.

1. Why compare ICO’s?

Comparing ICO’s can be beneficial to both cryptocurrency investors as well as the ICO teams themselves.

Different parties will have different reasons for wanting to know how an ICOcompares to the rest of the market.

For investors, it would be to establish if a particular product has the potential of delivering the expected ROI in the long-run and which option would be the best to commit to when looking at similar projects.

For ICO teams themselves, it can be beneficial to look at other token sales that rate particularly well to determine which area of their project they need to work on or improve in order to achieve a similar level of success.

Then there’s the general enthusiast who’s interested to see what the rest of the market thinks about a particular ICO and to what extent the solution provided has the potential to be truly revolutionary.

The problem is there are multiple ICO’s launched daily which equates to thousands every year. Some of the projects will be similar and there are bound to be a few not-so-great products in between.

With so many token sales flooding the market, it can be overwhelming and difficult to separate the good ones from the bad ones without having to do an in-depth and time-consuming analysis on individual ICO’s and their target market.

2. How can I do it?

The most effective way is to create a rating system based on a number of crucial ICO success indicators.

This will include the team behind the project, information on the ICO itself, how the product is presented and how well it is marketed.

The team: It is important for profiles on team members to be easily accessible and a sufficient amount of information should be disclosed on each individual. Displaying photos and links to external professional sites such as LinkedIn will help to instill trust and credibility.

Furthermore, the number of team members involved can also be a decisive rating factor. If there are only two individuals working on the project, you know it’s unlikely to be successful. However, multiple people are working on different aspects of the ICO, the chances of success are much bigger.

ICO information: Information on the actual ICO should be clearly visible and available. Start and end dates on pre-sales and the official ICO, how individuals can buy into the crowdsale and what currencies are accepted, a countdown towards the start/end of the sale and the price of each token can all help to take out the guesswork for investors which will give them more confidence to commit.

How the product is presented: This will depend largely on the information available in the whitepaper. It should include what the product is (i.e. platform, service, etc.), different milestones the company hopes to achieve and when they plan to achieve them, more detailed information on team members and the actual uses of the digital token. Having a professional video presentation with an overview of the product shows further quality and commitment from the ICO team.

 

3. Should I pay attention to the social media?

You definitely should!

With so many ICO’s being launched on to the market, it is essential for individual projects to attract a sufficient amount of attention to their product. The best way to judge this is by the marketing efforts of the company.

Are they active on the different social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Medium? Do they have a presence in relevant cryptocurrency forums like BitcoinTalk and GitHub? And what sort of information are they putting out there? These are all important questions to answer when comparing ICO’s.

 

4. Should I listen to experts’ opinion?

One of the most important factors to look at when rating ICO’s is the opinions of the experts in the cryptocurrency world.

They would broadly look at the same criteria but from a different angle.

Team: Teams with relevant cryptocurrency experience are generally rated much stronger than complete industry novices.

This includes development, coding, project management, community management and marketing.

The presence of an advisory board will further improve the integrity of a particular project.

Product information: ICO’s generally have two different aims. One is the funding of a completely new concept; the other is to fund the expansion of an existing project or to move it onto a Blockchain-based network. The latter is more likely to see success as it’s based on an already proven product or service. Therefore, experts will favor these projects.

A product or service that addresses an actual problem in the market would also enjoy a higher rating.

Business know-how: Projects with clearly defined long-term goals, a stated plan on how to achieve it, and the amount of investment needed to get there will be more likely to see success. Experts will also pay attention to whether or not there’s an already existing user base and if a competitive analysis has been done to better understand the playing field.

Market robustness: The ICO industry is mostly unregulated. This can change at any minute and different legislature can be implemented in different regions. A project with the flexibility to adapt and overcome changing market conditions should receive a higher comparative rating.

CryptoHunt is an augmented reality game where the players walk about and can collect CH tokens. (Just like PokemonGO but with actual $.)

Simply walk from home to work and collect 10 CH coins along the way. The total supply is 500mil, so say there is 100mil in circulation with a market cap of 500mil the coins are worth $5/each.

The game will be available for Demo on February 1st, at which time you can white list. The sale begins on March 1st and ends March 15th. I think the play-ability of the game will play a HUGE part in whether or not the ICO is successful, so we’ll have to wait and see on that.
