Blockchain Terminal ICO Analysis

The Blockchain Terminal (“BCT”) delivers a powerful set of tools and services to the wealth management industry, making use of blockchain technology to deliver cutting edge applications that have been created by a diverse community of developers, while also enabling real-time compliance enforcement and ad hoc audits. The BCT platform provides a robust layer of security and functionality to familiar tools, and capabilities that advance the current strategies of traditional investment managers, and also supports the complexities of cryptocurrency markets. Emerging cryptocurrency focused investment funds enjoy sophisticated platform tools for both front and back office operations along with the added value and assurance of a compliance framework that provides security for investors across this rapidly emerging asset class.

The central distinguishing feature of BCT is a hybrid ledger that integrates both a private and a public, permissioned blockchain to enable its core services. This hybrid ledger is anchored to the broader Ethereum blockchain, which can be freely used and addressed by BCT applications, a set of modular productivity tools and services that are supported by the Blockchain Terminal Foundation. Developers on this platform have easy access to production-tested infrastructure, with embedded compliance and broader distribution enabled by BCT’s comprehensive business strategy. The BCT is a high-availability network device that securely journals compliance entries for a hedge fund’s Chief Compliance Officer, and is also a desktop terminal for use by hedge fund traders, analysts, portfolio managers, and operations staff. All installed hardware devices on a firm’s network are configured to a private ledger that improves the overall integrity of critical data through consensus. This journaled data interacts with the global BCT permissioned ledger to provide an external anchor for internal activity that can be observed and verified by external constituents, including auditors and regulators without compromising confidentiality.

Why Us? ComplianceGuard is the base Blockchain Terminal app. It provides a deep compliance framework that satisfies the strictest hedge fund requirements. This framework is the reason our partner chose to work with us.

Ratings:

TEAM:+++++

A very experienced team, where each part of important business is represented.

The CEO Bob Bonomo is on a video on the homepage talking about a half of hour about the vision and the product Blockchain Terminal. He represents this project with a great attitude and it is believable what he says. Other team members and advisors have a great knowledge and experience as well, so that’s why I rate it with a 5.

VISION: +++++

The BCT platform and Blockchain Terminal will reduce compliance burdens while improving technology standards and choices for new and incumbent hedge funds.

BCT technology provides a secure record of hedge fund execution and operational activities and a transparent audit trail. Real time verification trough blockchain for compliance issues is possible and a hybrid open and private distributed ledger will be used to record the transactions.

BCT provides professional tools and information sources help connect the traditional hedge fund industry with the rapidly expanding investment opportunities in the cryptocurrency space.

PRODUCT: +++++

Blockchain Terminal: The BCT interface enables institutional-grade operations, decision support, and gateways to execution. Browsing the application catalogue, viewing and contributing user reviews, managing application subscriptions, administering terminal user accounts, and engaging with user support are all easy to accomplish. The terminal has also an exchange integration for cryptocurrencies, so the ComplianceGuard utilize technology to display information on the vast majority of approximately 1,400 cryptocurrencies, all in a compliance-vetted environment.

The Blockchain Terminal includes an App Ecosystem, where applications are built on a compliance framework and meet stringent standards for completeness, ease-of- use, secure operation, and user support. It includes an API for extern developers.

The pilot installation of the ComplianceGuard technology is installed at 20 hedge funds. Traction rates are high and therefore Blockchain Terminal will launch in Q1 2018. So the terminal is already working and it is tested by different hedge funds, that’s why I rate with a 5.

Would advise the team to get their KYC in order if they want to gain the trust of the community. The vision is nothing spectacular as it is not a revolutionary product, however I think the fact that they are first to market in this industry will be a huge benefit for the company

Weakest point is the requirement for the token itself, but team is good, connections are good so I think it is likely to get adoption.
