K Y C KYC PowerAgent partner PowerAgent “a verified digital platform will be evidence that clubs are able to do business in the real world” Unfortunately, I can’t get a deeper understanding of the project as their whitepaper is yet; less than a month away from their ICO. As it stands, there are a few issues at hand: not available Although their website states that smart contracts are , this is a grey area in which research is still on-going. Although this might be the case in the future, (one of the ten largest law firms in the world) argues that “ You can find more information about the matter, . legally binding Clifford Chance no smart contract solutions have yet significantly displaced traditional ways of contracting, but that is bound to change.

There is that the carrying out these checks is impartial or fully transparent which could lead to athletes or sport clubs being incorrectly barred from the platform. PowerAgent partner centralized no guarantee PowerAgent partner Their website talks only about the financial aspects of the smart contract; there is no mention on how the finer details of the smart contract will be held. It’s unfortunate that there are a few question marks lingering, as this is an industry that could certainly do with a face-lift using the blockchain and cryptocurrencies —a gap has identified. PowerAgent Token & ICO Overview PowerAgent Below you can find a graphic providing details about the ICO and some information about the . Terminologies on what an ICO is, what the total supply is, etc. can be found in my previous blog post, which you can find . PowerAgent Token here The token breakdown looks fairly standard, however, there is a big lingering question which I haven’t found an answer for… Why do they have/need a hard cap of $39,000,000? Token Use Any participant who would want to use digital verification, smart contracts, cryptocurrency enterprise services and the arbitrage system, they would need to acquire tokens and use them on the platform. The token will also be a means for payment exchange within the network and will be favoured due to it not having any transaction fees, when used within the platform.

PowerAgent Token POWA access to the platform’s services currency “and will be favored due to it not having any transaction fees” Team & Advisors Unfortunately, there are no details about the team and/or advisors on their website.

It would be understandable if the team and/or advisors remained anonymous if they were building a privacy coin but, in this case, is not building a privacy coin and therefore . huge red flag PowerAgent there is no excuse not to disclose their team and advisors Partnerships & Investors I would firstly like to point out that having partnerships or existing investors does not necessarily make or break an ICO. There have been numerous ICOs that have not had any partnerships and/or investors that have produced exceptional results. Being backed by enture apitalists ( ) indicates potential for rapid and profitable growth. V C VC Having that in mind, doesn’t seem to have any partnerships or existing investors.
