Team and advisors are really strong. With support from neo global capital the project can reach heights.see more
1. A cloud computing service project that overcomes the problems of existing services. We use the pouw model to efficiently use wasted computing power. It uses Intel sgx and uses a multi-chain model of plasma to increase scalability and security.
2. The prototype is coming out in July.
3. It is backed by an enormous number of strong institutional investors. And a very high hype
A complementary point
1. There are already strong competitors in the market. Elements to overcome.
2. Their advantage is revealed in the development of Etherium.see more
Our thoughts on buying the tokens for flipping and investing for the long term are as follows:
For flipping: A
The project has a high market awareness with a low hard cap (for a blockchain project). Most of the hard cap is contributed by funds and no syndicates are allowed. We believe there should be plenty of unmet demand following trading of the tokens.
For long-term holding: B
Ankr is a very ambitious project that is trying to solve many problems at once. Given the early stage of the project in both the technical and business development side, we have a neutral view on the project’s long-term viability. However, if the team successfully pulls it off, the potential can be substantial.see more
Picolo Research is neutral on this ICO project as we have several concerns with the relatively inexperienced team as well as the uncertainties in launching the PoUW algorithm. There are currently a few established projects in the space with several more slated to launch their ICO in the near future, which may cause overcrowding of such projects in this area. On a brighter note, they have the backing of several strong strategic investors, which have conducted critical due diligence on the project.see more
While a vast majority of competitors focus on complex technical solutions to improve the distributed cloud computing industry by using blockchain technology as an under frame for the architecture the project proposes, Ankr brings a new blockchain framework which plans to be efficient in resource usage and will bring a user friendly interface for business applications.
Therefore, the team creates a new path for the already beaten path of cloud computing infrastructure, as it goes beyond a niche solution of tweaking it with different settings and adding technologies with blockchain to focus on mass markets requirements. It offers an elegant solution to a fundamental problem, that of how the computational resources can be directed at useful tasks that address both blockchain and clients’ needs, without the need to create separate mechanisms for each.
We feel that Ankr has a big shot at disrupting the cloud computing industry, its biggest asset being the youthfulness, ambition and cohesion of the team as they come from the same development environment, Berkley, which is an incubator for powerful minds. In order to be successful, the Ankr team must build an ecosystem of users, and incorporate marketing strategies to draw in users and foster a significant amount of adoption. Currently, no business development strategies have been provided by the team and if the team get this aspect right, then Ankr may prove to be one of the stronger performers in the sector for years to come.see more
