Elrond is a Blockchain platform, applying adaptive State Sharding and Proof of Stake for security system. Project team makes sure that they will adopt Secure Proof of Stake – a form of innovative variant of Proof of Stake guaranting sercurity and decentralized equality while limiting the need to use mining energy of POW alogrithm. Besides, Elrond uses shard horizontal calculation, storing data in horizontal row. Today, this idea is not too new because previous blockchains have already done and achieved outstanding accomplishments in cryptocurrency market, such as Zilliqa ( 2+ TPS), Tomochian( Testet reaches 1k TPS), recently QuarkChain ( Testnet reaches +2k TPS)
Creating the expanded blockchain architecture and distracting security deal with current issues of permissonless blockchain such as Bitcoin, Ethereum.
Elround compares itself with other blockchains like Ethereum 15 TPS, Bitcoin 7 TPS, Visa 5000 TPS, elrond: 10k TPS.
Elrond had the initial test proving the ablity to solve through put, which is 1000 times as efficient as Eth, BTC, Visa. However, the testnet has not been public.
Elrond makes a great effort to tackle 2 following problems:

=> Overall, the development team is clearly divided in terms of the positions such as the executive, executive, programmer or research but no marketing or community management. This explains the reason why if you join the Telegram, you will see all people in the core team answering the question managing community as the team focused developing prototype, not on marketing. If you look at the details, you can realize that in the team, CEOs and COO are the two most prominent members.

It is too premature to affirm that whether Elrond team can do what they said. However, this is a quite enthusiastic and promising team! In order to compete with other strong projects, the team needs to move faster and faster than this current time, both in terms of product and marketing strategy, to gain the support of the community. Most recently, the team has posted updates that they have attained transaction processing - a milestone!

HYPE: is defined as the level of concern over a project and its FOMO. This score is based on the number of people joining a project’s social channels such as Reddit, Telegram, Twitter, Facebook, Bitcointalk, Medium or Slack as well as the number of review articles produced by the third party.
RISK: the risk rate of the project. Based on this score, you can find more spam warnings of the project. More specifically, RISK is about the transparency of the project, its idea, members of the development team, roadmap and whitepaper. (RISK is rated regardless ROI rate of the project).
ROI: (Return on Investment): the rate of profit a project can bring to investors (ROI is considered separately from RISK. ROI can be rated High and RISK can be rated High as well).
TERM: this factor reveals the length of time you should hold token or coin of a project. The period of time can be Short, Medium or Long.
ICOGENS’ SCORE: this score can be decided by scores of four other scores or it will reflect the level of interest ICOGENS’ team has in the project. This score is separated from ROI score. It just shows how much Icogens core team concern the project.
