7 Mar: I like the project, I just don’t like the large bonus they gave, somebody told me (about) 100 percent bonus, actually not sure if that’s been verified, but I do know 80 percent has been confirmed, right, with no lockup. I’m okay with large bonuses, I know people have to be rewarded for being early that’s not the problem, the problem is when they have no lock-up and they can just go on exchanges and dump and that’s then it’s not cool.
27 Feb: VideoCoin is a great project guys, I have it as 87% but I’m not touching it cause, I’ve been told but not verified that some people got 100 percent bonus so that is going dump. 100 percent bonus with no lock-up. I don’t touch any project with more than 50 percent without lock up. That would dump straight to hell right yeah so not gonna be touching that anytime soon.see more
1. The business that is led by the famous entrepreneur in Silicon Valley is a big deal.
2. It is a service that builds traffic as distributed compensation system, not simple compensation system service in the video industry. It's specialized in video traffic, which means few competitors.
3. It is one of the few ICOs that can raise hard cap with institutional investment alone.
A complementary point
1. Videocoin competitors are likely to be YouTube or AWS. It is anticipated that there will be considerable difficulties in getting to market through the niche market. In order for the service to be stable, many members are required to participate.
2. Tokenomic is opaque. Many institutional investors have participated, but for individual investors it can be quite unfair because Videocoin do not open the bonus percentage of private sales.
3. The contents have not yet come up in the github and the specific mvp is not up yet. The roadmap is slow.see more
VideoСoin Review by Midgard Research
VideoСoin is less than a day away to its launch on KuCoin and we wanted to take a better look at them. Here is our final review:
VideoСoin is developing a decentralized video network that will provide infrastructure for sharing, encoding and storing video content. They are using computer resources rented to them by miners.
The project was started to address modern problems in the video industry such as inefficient computing power distribution for encoding, storing, and distributing video content. In two years of Videocoin’s development and an alpha version released, they have processed over 10,000 hours of video and over 200,000 lines of code. They are testing their infrastructure layer which is responsible for task distribution and is already running on over 250 nodes.
The team consists of experienced professionals with many great released projects like CNET, Uphold, and Google Voice. Their CEO, Halsey Minor has created companies that have over $100 bn in value and has built a Nasdaq 100 company from scratch. Their CTO, Devadutta Ghat has worked as Head of Product for Intel and a Product Manager for Cloudera. People to note from their team are Hanno Basse, who worked as CTO at 20th Century Fox and Seth Shapiro, 2-time Emmy Award winner speaker and Governor of the Television Academy.
VideoСoin team has significantly updated tokenomics. Now network rewards miners in tokens and fiat without inflation. Token inflation is eliminated by a fixed amount of tokens released and the total supply cut by 70% (70 % was previously allocated towards payments for miners). The supply will be reduced further to 14% with the first-year lockup of non-presale tokens. VideoCoin has fundraised 50M USD during the token sale in May 2018.
The project will be listed on KuCoin on August 27th at 10:00 UTC. Deposits will be opened at 9:00 UTC on August 27th and the withdrawal will start August 29th, 12:00 UTC.
We see great potential in VideoCoin due to their team background and previous achievements, with the only downside being a tokenomics. Initial circulating supply is around 7% (18.5M) which is not bad but the circulating supply will increase drastically over the year creating a sale pressure on the token price. Overall, we believe such a capable team will find a way to support the price of the token and once the platform will be launched and token will be used, VideoCoin can easily enter TOP 100 CMC.
