Kyber Network (KNC) | Rating: 8/10 | Outlook: Positive

The Kyber Network is a protocol that provides its users the ability to convert or exchange digital assets, tokens, and cryptocurrencies. While you can use Kyber Network as an exchange, you can also transfer tokens from one person to another. Also, when you move tokens through the Kyber Network, they don’t have to match what the receiver wants. Kyber Network can perform the exchange for you during the transfer. The Kyber Network Crystal, KNC, is an ERC20 token. To manage a reserve on the Kyber Network, a Reserve Manager has to purchase KNC. Every time an exchange takes place on the network, a small portion of KNC is charged as a fee. These fees are partially used to pay for the operational costs of the platform. They’re also used as an incentive for third-party entities which bring additional trade volume into the Kyber Network. 226 million KNC were minted for the ICO with 60% going out to those who participated. This outstanding supply will change over the next few years as KNC are burned. The Kyber network has some pretty strong team members with experience in blockchain technology and software development. It also has the likes of Vitalik Buterin as an advisor. Kyber Network successfully released its testnet beta in August of 2017, and just a few months later launched its main net. KNC is listed on a number of exchanges although the bulk of the volume is done on Binance. There are strong order books here which means that you will have reduced slippage. KNC is still quite volatile when compared to similar sized altcoins so traders should still be aware. *Coin Bureau's views are not investment advice. Do Your Own Research.

Zcoin (XZC) | Rating: 7/10 | Outlook: Positive

Zcoin is a privacy focused cryptocurrency that was originally built on the Zerocoin protocol. However, given a number of vulnerabilities in that protocol, they recently moved to a new "Sigma" Protocol that was launched in 2019. Transactions are made private by a privacy enhancement in the protocol called "minting". Before you are able to send transactions, you have to mint new coins. Given that all coin’s transactions originate from a newly minted coin, it is hard to track the origin. Privacy on Zcoin is made possible through the use of Zero Knowledge proofs. You also have Tor integration as well as their recently released "Dandelion" protocol. This will further help to cement user privacy on the network. ZCoin uses a the Merkle Tree Proof of Work algorithm (MTP). This is a memory hard algorithm that is considered to be ASIC resistant and hence less prone to centralisation. Zcoin also has a masternode architecture with their "Znodes" (require 1,000 XZC to stake). In compensation for running this full node, the Znode will receive 30% of the newly minted Zcoins. The team behind the Zcoin protocol is quite extensive experience in blockchain engineering, software development, cryptography and many more. The developers have also been hard at work if you take a look into their GitHub repository. When it comes to markets, XZC is listed on a number of exchanges including MXC, Coinex, Binance, Huobi etc. There appears to be reasonable liquidity on these exchanges which will ease execution. However, XZC is still volatile so trade with caution. *Coin Bureau's views are not investment advice. Do Your Own Research.

Beam (BEAM) | Rating: 8/10 | Outlook: Positive

2019-10-15
8/10

Beam is a privacy concious cryptocurrency that uses the MimbleWimble protocol. It is through this technology that the project hopes to achieve the scalability and privacy. The MimbleWimple protocol integrates several concepts into one hybrid blockchain. This creates a network that offers improved privacy and efficiency. For performance and scalability, MimbleWimble removes unnecessary transactions while simultaneously combining intermediary transactions. Beam held no crowdsale ICO or any pre-mine. Altough they are rewarding early investors and the team through block rewards. Beam has a supply of nearly 263 million tokens, which the project uses on a deflationary emission schedule. Beam ensures that decentralization occurs on its network by becoming ASIC-resistant for the first 18 months. This means GPUs can mine Beam. The team has been active and have been meeting milestones in their roadmap. You can verify this by checking out their GitHub repositories. BEAM is listed on a number of exchanges and is doing over $1 million in daily trading volume. The order books are relatively liquid on the likes of Binance and HotBit. Price history has been relatively volatile so traders should be careful when taking on large positions of BEAM. *Coin Bureau's views are not investment advice. Do Your Own Research.

Welcome to the 36th Coin Report. In today’s report, I will be assessing the fundamental and technical strengths and weaknesses of PirateChain. This will be comprised of an analysis of a number of significant metrics, an evaluation of the project’s community and development and an overview of its price-history. The report will conclude with a grading out of 10. PirateChain was conceptualised within the Komodo Discord and launched in August 2018 as an independent blockchain within the Komodo asset ecosystem. It was launched with no premine or ICO and utilises Delayed Proof-of-Work for consensus on the Equihash algorithm. Further, it is 100% private, with transparent transactions unable to be made on the network. Regarding supply emission, it has a steep emission curve, with block reward halvings every 270 days, culminating in a maximum supply of 199.99mn ARRR. The current block reward is 128 ARRR with 1-minute block times.

TokenInsight | Zcoin Rating Update: Upgrades to BB, Outlook: Stable(2019-9-16)

2019-09-16
BB

In July 2019, Zcoin officially launched the Sigma anonymity protocol to replace its previous Zerocoin protocol. As an important part of the next-generation anonymity protocol Lelantus, the Sigma protocol features small proof sizes and requires no trusted setup. The Lelantus protocol is still under development, with its official release expected for the first quarter of 2020. Ongoing work on Lelantus aims to further enhance its anonymity and solve the problem of fixed denomination completely. Zcoin, as an anonymous payment token, still falls behind Dash, Monero and other leading projects in market segments with relatively low total market capitalization. It also lacks competitiveness in terms of user volume, trading activity, exposure and media attention, which have yet to show improvement over the short term. However, in view of the leading role that anonymity technology plays throughout the industry and its large-scale application in Thailand's general election, as well as its application among 5 million local merchants, the project shows strong development prospects for the future. In terms of development progress, Zcoin has reached most of its initial goals on schedule, including the upgrade of its Lyra2z consensus algorithm to a more ASIC-resistant MTP algorithm and the launch of the next-generation Sigma anonymity protocol.

Welcome to the 32nd Coin Report. In today’s report, I will be assessing the fundamental and technical strengths and weaknesses of ExchangeCoin. This will be comprised of an analysis of a number of significant metrics, an evaluation of the project’s community and development and an overview of its price-history. The report will conclude with a grading out of 10. ExchangeCoin was launched in November 2017 with an ICO that raised 650 BTC, equating to over $5,000,000 at the time. The token issued, EXCC, has a maximum supply of 32,003,133, with 4mn EXCC sold during the ICO. Further, the project also has a premine of 12.1mn EXCC, equating to 37.95% of the maximum supply (from which the 4mn was sold to the public in the token sale). The token itself operates on the Equihash algorithm, and underwent a hard fork in July 2018, after which the network migrated to a dual Proof-of-Work/Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism, with 30% of block rewards rewarded to stakers and 70% to miners. The block reward is progressively diminishing, with the current reward at 24.5 EXCC per block, with 2.5-minute block times.

Welcome to the 34th Coin Report. In today’s report, I will be assessing the fundamental and technical strengths and weaknesses of Constellation. This will be comprised of an analysis of a number of significant metrics, an evaluation of the project’s community and development and an overview of its price-history. The report will conclude with a grading out of 10. Constellation launched in 2017 with a private sale that raised $35.2mn in exchange for 756mn DAG – the utility token for the Constellation Network. This amounted to 18.9% of the original 4,000,000,000 DAG maximum supply; however, as a gesture of good will, the founders burned the 288mn tokens originally allocated to them, leaving the maximum supply at 3.71bn DAG. The team raised no further funds following this. DAG was created as an ERC-20 token for accessibility purposes, but, upon the launch of the Mainnet in October, these tokens will be swapped for the native Directed Acyclic Graph tokens; hence the ticker, DAG.

The novel hybrid consensus-based TrueChain tends to rely on POW consensus for random node selection, instead of using the slow chain mechanism to ensure security like Thunder.Although TrueChain has released dozens of Dapps, the number of its addresses (including active ones)and transactions is small. After the mainnet is launched, the project has run out of short-term bullish factors, which, plus the underdevelopment of its ecosystem, leads to a price slump within a short period of time. It will take some time for investors to regain confidence.

TOP Network's vision is to reshape traditional P2P communication networks with new technologies to create a high-performance platform that supports real-world business activities, providing users with secure, high-quality, low-cost communication services, including messaging, voice call, video call, VPN, CDN and IoT data exchange. In addition, TOP Network provides a high-performance public chain called TOP chain to support business activities around the world. TOP Network's R&D team has extensive expertise and experience in relevant fields. The current development progress of the project is in line with the roadmap. However, TOP's performance on DEX is less favorable with a small volume and 99% of the tokens concentrated in one address. The TokenGazer research team believes that communication service is a vast market and TOP Network has a first-mover advantage in this field given its achievements already made. However, there are still uncertainties in the course of incorporating blockchain technology, and the use cases of TOP tokens need to be further extended. Meanwhile, the TOP team needs to make more efforts to increase the visibility of the project. Investors should be wary of potential risks.

Newton targets the promising community economy market, while its development mainly relies on integrating existing technologies, without significant technical innovations of its own. Newton team members have experience of doing the Elastos project, so Newton garners much attention on Github and social media platforms. However, the number of users in Newton's ecosystem is currently small, therefore the team needs to attract more developers and users to enrich the ecosystem.

The LTO team features prominent business background that helps to apply blockchain technology to business process management. It has established cooperative relationship with many B2B companies on the certificate storage and Live Contracts programs, which contributes to LTO transaction volume, making LTO one of the few blockchain projects with real-world applications. However, it remains to be seen how such business cooperation can be converted into the value of LTO tokens, and we think there might be challenges for LTO to achieve greater value beyond certificate storage in business process management.

As one of the earliest project on Binance Launchpad, GTO enjoys a good reputation and visibility in the blockchain industry. However,the GTO token is still not widely adopted due to regulatory issues in many regions and cannot replace the U coins in current Uplive system due to its design. The low transaction volume of GTO token reflects its less competitive value capture ability.

Elrond draws on technologies of many public-chain projects and made innovations in its own design. So far Elrond has been progressing smoothly in line with the roadmap, while judging from the large amount of difficult tasks for the rest of 2019, we believe Elrond might be faced with great challenges in development and a risk of delay in progress. Elrond has a well-designed token distribution scheme and token economic model, while based on estimated ERD token price, Elrond's capitalization is currently lower than other existing and forthcoming public blockchains, with a potential to grow in the case of a favorable market environment. Considering the fierce competition and uncertainties for public blockchains, we think Elrond's ecosystem development still has a long way to go and currently ERD is still a highly risky investment.

Dusk Network is a privacy focused blockchain protocol that aims to become the privacy infrastructure of choice for an entire ecosystem of solutions.Dusk's novel Proof-of-Blind Bid protocol separates block proposers from block validators, providing better privacy protection and reducing vulnerability to Sybil attacks. The testnet has been released and the Dusk mainnet is scheduled to launch by the end of 2019. The zero-knowledge proof verification for more types of contracts might be faced with challenges and delay in implementation. Dusk's planning for application is line with that for its business development, so if Dusk's mainnet is launched successfully, it is likely to obtain some real-world business use cases. DUSK token has maintained a good ROI since listing on Binance DEX with a large volume and small bid-ask spread. Its volume on Binance exchange is also impressive since listing.

Contentos' vision is to use blockchain technology to build a free, fair and decentralized global digital content community, which serves as the infrastructure for decentralized digital content system, transaction and financial system and social network. Contentos features a soundly designed architecture, but its growth relies on the development of public blockchain scalability, decentralized storage and cross-chain technologies. Therefore it is difficult for Contentos to lay a technical foundation for its vision in the short term. Besides, Contentos'token reward-based content ecosystem might encounter great challenges in implementation. TokenGazer thinks that Contentos is exploring a huge market and playing an active part in solving the problems in the content ecosystem.

Subsequently, the team raised funds privately in a seed round followed by a second private funding round before a final public crowdsale in January 2019, offering their LTO token in exchange. The total amount raised was around $2.67mn. LTO was created as an ERC-20 token for accessibility but there is a native LTO token for the mainnet, as well as a BNB-based token for trading on Binance DEX. The total supply of LTO currently in existence is ~453mn, but this is split across the three chains in varying proportions, with a Bridge in place for interoperability.
