ArcBlock (ABT) | Rating: 7/10 | Outlook: Stable
ArcBlock is another project that is trying to simplify the process of Decentralised Application (dApp) and blockchain development. They are trying to build a blockchain 3.0 platform with the foundational components which include SDKs, Code Packages, developer tools and services. There are a number of interesting features behind the ArcBlock protocol. One of these is the Open Chain Access Protocol (OCAP). This enables connectivity across a variety of blockchain protocols. Developers are also able to build their dApps in a user-friendly interface on their web browser. Another component is the Blocklet. This takes advantage of server-less architecture to build services and applications. Blocklets are reusable and customizable for fast and powerful development within any platform the developer chooses. The team behind the ArcBlock project is quite a diverse one and they have backgrounds in entrepreneurship, software engineering and public relations. The team has also been quite active in their development as can be evidenced by the regular stream of GitHub commits. There is also a reasonably sized community at ArcBlock and this can be seen through their Telegram channel and their Twitter account. Community engagement is below average though for a project of this scale. The ABT utility token on the ArcBlock network is an ERC20 token. There is a total supply of 186m ABT. The team completed an ICO in February of 2018 and were able to raise a total of $45m. Trading on the token began not long after that and they have had quite a rough ride. It has followed the broader trend in the crypto markets. It is also listed on exchanges including Huobi global and Gate.io. There are relatively healthy levels of liquidity at these exchanges. Yet, ABT is still quite volatile so do trade with caution. *Coin Bureau's views are not investment advice. Do Your Own Research.
Tomochain (TOMO) | Rating: 7/10 | Outlook: Stable
Tomochain is another one of the projects that is trying to help Ethereum scale. Apart from merely solving the scaling angle, they would also like to make a blockchain that could be interoperable with others. The Tomochain blockchain is currently able to process up to 5,000 transactions per second and they have been able to garner 2 second transaction times. They hope that in the not too distant future they could be able to reach 20,000 to 30,000 transactions per second. Technologically, on the Mainnet, Tomochain makes use of a masternodes framework. The consensus algorithm that they use is Proof-of-Stake Voting (POSV). There are also plans to implement sharding on the network which could speed up the transaction throughput dramatically. The Tomochain team is quite a diverse one with a wide range of experience. They have backgrounds in Investment banking and blockchain engineering. The CEO also used to be the lead for the NEM blockchain project. The broader team is based in Singapore. There has been a lot of work that has been done on the project which can be evidenced by their extensive GitHub commits. This is more than we have seen on other projects that are at similar stages of their life. You can read more about their Roadmap in our long form attached review. TOMO held their ICO back in March of 2018 and they were able to raise 8.5m in Exchange for some of the initial supply of TOMO ERC20 tokens. However, these were transitioned to a mainnet token on the Tomochain in December of 2018. Token trading is taking place on the Binance DEX, KuCoin and HotBit etc. HotBit has the bulk of the volume which could be risky from a Key Exchange perspective. There are healthy turnover levels on this exchange though. TOMO tokens are still quite volatile though so do trade them with caution. *Coin Bureau's views are not investment advice.

Aion (AION) | Rating: 8/10 | Outlook: Positive
Aion is a "third generation" blockchain platform which is focused on interoperability between blockchains. Apart from this, the developers have also been busy making sure that the root chain of Aion is also used to its full potential. This means that Aion will not only be used to connect other ecosystems but it also has the ability to execute smart contracts. It will make it easy for smart contract developers to port an Ethereum dApp over to the Aion blockchain. There are three key components of the Aion technology stack: - Aion token bridge: This will move, sign and broadcast interchain transactions. It will also keep the connecting network informed. - The Aion VM: This is based on a lightweight Java VM implementation that has been crafted specifically for Aion. - The Aion API: This gives developers an interface for Java based dApps The Aion team has over 49 employees and they are headquartered in Toronto. They have diverse backgrounds including some who have worked in consulting and software engineering. This team has been quite busy as they have been pushing regular code commits to their GitHub. There is also a pretty active and engaged community behind the Aion network. They have decent followers on all of their traditional social media accounts. They also keep their sizable telegram community updated with important developments. Aion held an ICO back in late 2017. This was comprised of a $23m private sale round as well as a larger $20m crowd sale. Not long after this, the tokens were caught up in the 2017 bull run. However, they were also dragged down by the preceding bear market. Token trading is taking place on a number of different exchanges including Binance, Bittrex, KuCoin etc. There is healthy volume on these exchanges which means that liquidity should not be a concern. AION remain quite volatile when compared to similar projects - so exercise caution. *Coin Bureau's views are not investment advice. Do Your Own Research.
