Analysis of ICO Fabric Token
The Fabric Token (FT) ecosystem provides individuals and businesses with easy access to blockchain technology and smart contracts via a bundle of user-friendly software. The products within the ecosystem are focused on helping people of any background to create and deploy their DApps, without specialized computer knowledge. These products are:
- Fabric Token itself;
- TokenGen: a simple web application for smart contract generation (for individuals);
- DApp Workbench: application platform for incorporating smart contracts and blockchain into business process management (for businesses);
- Fabric Store: a decentralized marketplace for extensions to the FT ecosystem (for 3rd party developers).
A live demo of TokenGen is available.
The White Paper has a thorough blockchain and smart contracts market research, supported by data, graphs and analysis.
There is also an extensive overview of competitive landscape. Financial plan/projects and marketing plan are missing. There are two revenue streams mentioned: a fee for getting the smart code generated by TokenGen and subscription-based payment model for DApp Workbench. It is noted that the development of the FT ecosystem will continue regardless of the outcome of the fundraiser. The roadmap is very well planned and has detailed milestones.
It is stated in the White Paper that go to market strategy will be available after token launch. For the moment, the team is very active on social media and their following is solid. The project is also promoted via relevant mass media and ICO-specific resources.
There are 3 core team members, they have experience in software engineering, digital marketing and entrepreneurship.
There are 6 advisors who add expertise in finance, business development and trading.
