4NEW –
What – Transforming garbage to electricity
When - Jan. 19 - Mar. 31, 2018
Target - $75,000,000
Attractive - 4.3 out of 5.0

Idea and Token
4NEW – An ecosystem that converts garbage to electricity and applies that to crypto mining.

How it works
Waste gets delivered to the 4NEW site, for which 4NEW receives income. The plant processes waste through a pressurized internal combustion chamber. Gases produced cause turbines to generate electricity and byproducts, which is sold for additional revenue stream. This enables the plant to operate at breakeven and in essence create free energy. The last point acts as a "Catalyst" that unites three industries into a single self sustaining ecosystem whereby production meets consumption:
- Waste Industry
- Energy Industry
- Blockchain Industry

As producers of electricity, 4NEW's annual output capacity of 300,000,000 kWh has been pegged to each KWATT token. Owners of KWATT tokens are in essence holding tokenized electricity which is starkly different from all other energy offerings within the crypto-space. This energy embodied within the token can be applied either to the UK National Grid at the market price of a kilowatt, or it can be applied to the onsite crypto-mining farm in order to facilitate crypto-currency transactions on the blockchain.

Summary
4NEW stands out against the general backdrop of IT projects within the crypto-space as an unconventional approach with a comprehensive view towards the largest problem in the long term sustenance and feasibility of the blockchain technology. The voracious consumption of electricity by the blockchain technology can be managed by dedicated power plants focused towards supporting crypto-transactions which will in the long term enable the blockchain to be self sufficient especially in an environment where wide energy gaps are already globally prevalent. The 4NEW solution and ecosystem seems to address three global social crisis in a harmonious manner, whereby, three technologies interact in a single innovative ecosystem, turning a boring recycling business into an exciting crypto-story. A strong diversified team of practitioners with a combined knowledge of 300 years further provide the foundational support to this ecosystem.
The project has already reached the soft cap and gained more than $40M off the $75M of the hard cap targeted to be achieved by March 31, 2018. And that is a real high score.
We do find this project it be interesting and that is why we put a high score.

DAV – https://buff.ly/2FJ7Us9
What – Blockchain-based network of autonomous vehicles
When – Apr 30 - May 14
Rating – 4.5

Idea & Token
DAV is building a blockchain-based transportation platform that will allow you to buy or sell autonomous transportation services in a decentralized market. First of all it’s about autonomous cars. Though nowadays they are not widespread, cars without drivers is a strong tendency in the transportation field. As they say in DAV, you won’t hire drivers anymore, you will hire cars. You can use the platform not only as a consumer, but as an owner of an autonomous car as well, providing your services via the DAV protocol. And it doesn’t matter if you are an individual entrepreneur or a solid transportation company, all participants will have equal rights and possibilities to develop their business. One more vehicle type is autonomous drones you can use to send or receive anything and anywhere, and this technology is developing much faster than autonomous cars which is quite predictable. The orders on the platform will be implemented by using smart contracts based on the Ethereum blockchain.
To understand how serious this project is you should know that DAV is supported by such companies as
Google, NASA, SAP, GM, Ethereum, and UPS. The list is much more than solid.
DAV’s ERC-20-compliant token called DAV will be used for all the payments on the platform. The created tokens will be distributed the following way: 40% will be sold on ICO, 25% will be spent for bounties and partnerships, 20% will be kept for long-term budget, 15% will go to the team and advisors.

Team
The team is fully packed with software developers and consists of 16 members covering such spheres as big data, machine learning, cryptocurrency, encryption, mobile apps, web apps, AI, self-driving cars, design, and marketing. CEO and founder Noam Copel, strategist and investor, has strong experience in cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and encryption, created the world’s first smartphone encryption system. They also have 8 advisors, former or current top specialists from NASA, Ethereum, SAP, UPS, General Motors, Bancor, and Equinix. In general, the team looks completely gathered and very strong.

Summary
What they have for now is an excellent cutting-edge technology idea, uniqueness of the project, strong team, an extremely solid list of enterprises supporting the project, released app for drone delivery, 100+ contributors on GitHub (the protocol is an open-source project). At the same time it’s quite a big question when autonomous cars will become a part of our everyday life. Autonomous drones are developing faster, but most of us still imagine them as a picture from future. Anyway we are sure the idea is exciting for everyone, and if the team will be able to bring it to life, the long-term perspective of the project is great.

If you still think self-driving cars and drone-based delivery is something from future, here’s the project to change your mind.

Endor – http://bit.ly/2F1y5cm
What – Protocol for affordable predictive analytics for businesses and users
When – TBD
Rating – 4.8

Idea & Token
As a rule, predictive analytics requires complex hardware and software, lots of time for computing and iterations, data scientists, modern data models, artificial intelligence technology, and the last but not the least – money. If you have all of these, you’ll get quite accurate answer to your predictive question. So, nowadays only large corporations can afford this kind of service. Endor is aiming to use blockchain technology and automation to make predictive analytics available for everyone. The idea is based on Social Physics, a new science developed in MIT and dealing with everyday sets of data, for example credit card purchases. By analyzing these datasets you can find human activity patterns and, basing on them, obtain accurate predictive analytics. First of all Endor is targeting enterprise clients. They will upload their data to Endor’s automated “Data as a Service” platform, wait for the data processing (from an hour to a day), and then ask questions to get the required predictions. This engine was already successfully used by Coca-Cola to find out market campaign effectiveness and product adoption, and by Twitter to detect ISIS activists. The list of enterprise clients is quite long, we’d name two more monsters – Mastercard and Walmart. The experience in all of these companies showed that the computing costs were much lower in comparison to the current methods and systems. For end users, the company is planning to use blockchain technology to connect users and data providers in a cost-effective way to make predictive analytics affordable for everyone. If you are sure this won’t be interesting for you as a user, think that you could predict a token price, say, three months ahead. We don’t mean an Endor’s token, we mean literally any token you plan to invest to. This is a privilege that wasn’t available to mere mortals ever before. The Endor’s protocol will allow you to connect to an existing blockchain as well as off-chain datasets. You will pay Endor’s EDR tokens to make a prediction request, and the more complex the request, the higher the price. These tokens will go to analytical data providers who supply the data sets and to those who perform the computations. Most of the generated tokens will be spent on research and development, establishing partnerships (for example, with a world-leading research institute), and purchases of prediction engine technologies.

Team
The team consists of 12 of world-class professionals - data scientists, IT specialists, product experts. Some of them have PhDs, many of them are directly connected with MIT. Dr. Yaniv Altshuler, co-founder and CEO, and Professor Alex Pentland, also a co-founder, both are MIT reserchers, developed theoretical base for the Endor protocol and Social Physics. They also have 8 advisors, top specialists at blockchain technology, data science, big data analytics, and many more. Endor established partnerships with those companies listed above and a number of others among which we’d name two companies connected to blockchain technology - Bancor and Enigma.

Summary
The summary is short. A valuable idea, a top team, a strong and weighed vision, a working product, a number of huge enterprise clients. The only thing to pay attention is a lack of information regarding the token and its distribution, but we are sure they’ll do everything better than we expect.

A very strong project bringing the idea of affordable predictive analytics to enterprises and masses. Just ask any question!

CloudMoolah – http://bit.ly/2EXfpKI
What – Aggregated payment system for gaming industry in Southeast Asia
When – Mar 1-31, 2018
Rating – 🔥4.3

Idea & Token
Nowadays the credit card penetration rate in Southeast Asia is extremely low. To bring the gaming industry into this market, CloudMoolah is aiming to combine local payment methods (such as prepaid cards or e-banking) and their token MOO. This system will allow developers to collect in-app revenues from 100+ million gamers who don’t have credit cards and 500,000+ retail points of sales in Southeast Asia. CloudMoolah is already launched in the USA and currently has 10+ million gamers on the platform. The blockchain technology will make gaming transactions secure and efficient and increase cost savings for developers.
A total supply of the CloudMoolah ERC-20 token called MOO is 500 million, and a circulating supply is 300 million. The tokens will be available on public exchanges.
Developers will have access to the gamers through the MOO store, which is an app store with applications and tools providing efficient and secure transactions between gamers and developers. The MOO store will use its native virtual currency called CloudMoolah Points (CMP) which will be used for payments and transactions. The MOO tokens can also be traded for CMPs. 41% of all tokens will be for public sale, 17% go to suppliers, the rest will be distributed among the team members and advisors.

Team
The CloudMoolah management team consists of 10 specialists with impressive multi-year experience in the video game industry, software development, blockchain, marketing, payment systems, and finance. They published in Asia such game monsters as World of Warcraft, EA Sports FIFA Online 2, Starcraft 2 and Counter-Strike Online, built FIFA Online 2 fan base from zero to 25 Million in Southeast Asia. Judge yourself. The advisors team includes 6 professionals in blockchain, IT, law, advertising, and finance.
They also established partnerships with a number of companies including Unity Technologies, the most popular game development engine in the world.

Summary
Having the platform already working in the USA and planning to spread the ecosystem on a global scale, CloudMoolah has its current focus on the Asian market, which nowadays is far behind the western payment systems. What we see as a bottom line is a strong and experienced team that definitely knows how to drive this business and has already proved it, a working product, and a good idea attractive for both gamers and developers and promising profits for both. What we should mention as possible challenge is a high diversification and heterogeneity of Asian market that will require flexible approach in the platform development and integration. If they make it, CloudMoolah is really on track to cut that huge piece of cake of the Asia gaming market.

Imagine how many gamers in Asia, current and potential ones. What if all of them will be engaged to a unified payment platform that will significantly reduce their expenses and make transactions simple and transparent. Then you’ve got the answer.

PolicyPal Network – http://bit.ly/2F3J4oP
What – Decentralized platform for cryptocurrency assets insurance and P2P mutual aid insurance for emerging markets
When – Pre-sale is over, main sale is going to be conducted in March
Rating – 4.0

Idea & Token
What is the main factor preventing you from using cryptocurrencies? Right, unpredictability and fear to lose your money. PolicyPal Network is yet another project trying to give you peace of mind and they do it by protecting cryptoassets with insurance. This is the first part of the project. And the second one is providing the unbanked the ability to get insurance via the mutual aid insurance approach. They are going to lower the barriers associated with traditional insurance coverage for emerging markets where people can’t afford insurance due to low income level. Though working in Singapore, the team is targeting other Asian countries to develop PolicyPal Network there.
Two main parts of the project:
– CryptoProtect. This is a cyber security service in partnership with Insurers to protect cryptocurrency assets of blockchain startups. It will be underwritten by “AA” rated global insurers.
– P2P mutual aid insurance. Based on smart contracts, this approach automates the underwriting of policies and claims handling. And the blockchain technology will reduce the cost of insurance premiums making insurance protection affordable for the unbanked in such spheres as life insurance, personal accident plan, agriculture, and property. Traditionally blockchain will bring real-time transactions with full history, reliability, transparency, data validation, and efficiency.
One more goal of the project is to reduce insurance fraud.
Their ERC-20 tokens called PAL will be used as gas price for the blockchain. The gas fees collected during the first two years will go to PolicyPal Network blockchain pool. The tokens collected afterwards will be destroyed, which will limit the supply of tokens and increase their price. You can earn the tokens as bonus rewards when purchasing insurance policies or participate in different surveys regarding PolicyPal Network or in marketing referral program.

Team
PolicyPal Network team consists of 14 members. The company CEO Val Yap previously was an assistant VP of OCBC Bank, launched several campaigns, one of which received 3 medals at MOB-EX awards, a recipient of Forbes’ 30 under 30 award. The rest specialists have solid experience in marketing, strategy, insurance broking, and software development. They also have 7 advisors, top specialists in blockchain and cybersecurity, entrepreneurs and investors. In general, the team strong and looks capable of driving the project to success.

Summary
Being an insurance broker in Singapore, PolicyPal has partnerships with such global insurance companies as AIG, Allianz, Income, Etiqa, and many more and currently has 32,000 users in Singapore. The project was one out of three startups selected by PayPal for their nine-month incubation program Singapore. One more their achievement is top 10 out of 400 startups selected by Startupbootcamp Fintech Singapore. The disadvantages are quite common for many ICO projects – unclear roadmap and the product which is not ready yet. Anyway PolicyPal Network has positive perspective.

PolicyPal Network is a solution aiming to bring insurance into two new spheres – cryptocurrency assets and emerging Asian markets for those who couldn’t afford insurance ever before.

Havven – http://bit.ly/2Fk0dsj
What – Decentralized peer-to-peer payment network and a price-stable token
When – Feb 28 - Mar 06, 2018
Rating – 4.3 🔥

Idea & Token
Talking about cryptocurrency advantages we surely name security, reliability, simplicity, but not stability, because nowadays cryptocurrency market volatility is obvious for everyone. There were several attempts to add this characteristic to cryptocurrency. Havven is aiming to do it by a dual token system, and as a result, their decentralized payment network will open the market of everyday cryptocurrency purchases.
Here's how it works:
The first token called Nomin will have a stable price, similar to fiat money. The second token called Havven (ERC-20 token) is used as a collateralization mechanism for Nomins. Transactions in the ecosystem will be performed by using Nomins. For each transaction, you will have to pay a fee to Havven token holders. This way the fees from transactions will be used to collateralize the network. The more fees are paid the more Nomins can be issued, value of the platform increases and active participants are rewarded with increased transaction fees. The ICO will define the initial value of the Havven pool, and therefore – the maximum supply of Nomins.
100 million Havvens will be created, 60% of them are to be sold during ICO. Most of the funds will be spent for network development and market adoption of the payment network. Team member tokens will be locked up for two years, and tokens of advisors – for one year.

Team
In general, the core team has serious experience in development and deploying systems for cryptocurrency purchases in Australia and consists of developers, marketing, and project managers. The project's founder and CEO Kain Warwick, who is also a co-founder and CEO of Blueshyft, has built the largest cryptocurrency payment platform in Australia with tens of millions transactions. The company's CTO Justin Moses also serves a Director of Engineering at MongoDB, a distributed database organization.

Summary
Though the team is quite strong, most of the team members work for two or more projects at the same time, that can lead to a lack of attention to the project development. Among disadvantages we'd also mention unclear business and financial roadmap and uncertain plan of the platform adoption on the market and target audience. Anyway, Havven tokens may become interesting for speculative investors. Talking about advantages we'd highlight freezing period for the team and advisors funds, and the idea itself. If it shoots the effect may spread on other markets making the project perspective quite bright.

Many dream about stable cryptocurrency market. Havven suggests a new two-token approach to reach that stability and make cryptocurrency as usual as everyday purchases with fiat.
