  1. Idea of product development

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:

  • Minimizing the demand of using POW consensus mechanism and recommending using Secure Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism.
  • Reinforcing communication in shard and making state blockchain more essential.
  • That Elrond randomly ensures options of consensus group can not be predicted. Shards will be accidentally grouped to add an anti-attack security layer. Using multi-signature to seal blocks, providing highly efficient crypto layer

  • There are 3 main shading types: network shading, transaction sharding and state sharding. Network sharding ensures that nodes are grouped to form shards. Merchanism of linking nodes into shards is to resist attack from an attacker and then withstand a specific shard. Transaction sharding plays a part in linking and processing transactions. In system based on accounts, transaction will be attached to shards on a basis of sender’s address. State sharding enables each shard to maintain a sole state location. Each transaction containing accounts at different shards will exchange information and update situation at different shards.
  • It is promising to be the first portal Blockchain platform in the world, applying Adaptive State Sharding and Secure Proof of Stake. The objective is to become EVM, which is compatible with cross-chain integration.
  1. Development team

CEO: Beniamin Mincu had been a member of NEM's core team since 2014 but held main responsibility in business, marketing and communication for NEM post on Bitcoin in a year and a half. Before that, he was the CEO of Metachain Capital fund, investing in projects such as Ziliqua, Icon, Wanchain, Nebulas, and more. Prior to that, he is Co-founder of the ICO Market Data for 10 months, and the company focused on ICO investment analysis, which was quite small.  He also has 4-year experience in Blockchain investment.  COO: CEO of Lucian Todea - founder and CEO of soft32 over 15 years in terms of online software platform for apps on Mac, window, mobile, has more than 61k visitors per day. CIO: Lucian Mincu is an accomplished infrastructure engineer with 8-year experience in developing startups, designing and implementing engineering, networking and infrastructure solutions for large enterprises such as German State. He enjoys cutting-edge technology, and he has been participated in blockchain since 2016. He is also the co-founder of the Metachain Foundation and the ICO Market Data. Head of Research: Alexandru Butean holds a Ph.D. in Science Studies and Teaching Database Architecture as a Professor Assistant in the University. He is one of the founders of the INCON Research Center. He has more-than-12-year experience in software architecture, enterprise architecture, EU fund-raising research ...


Main programmer Sebastian Marian: won in the 3rd place 4 times in the international competition about AI: RoboCup (annual international robotics competition, established in 1996). He is a member of the RoboCup Executive Council, a member of the RoboCup Technical Committee. He has advanced experience in Multi-Agent Systems, Machine Learning and AI. He holds a bachelor in Computer Science and Software Engineering with over-18-year experience in working in various languages ​​and technologies. However, the companies he underwent earlier were not very famous.


Adrian Dobrita: Main Developer: won National first Prize of the Multi-Agent AI System Competition. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and a Bachelor of Advanced Computing System. With more than 10 years of experience, he is a software engineer with proficient skills in using programming languages. Software Engineer at AUSY, service and information technology company, for more than a year, however this company is not very well known.


Main Developer: Ion Ceban holds a Computer Science degree and a Bachelor degree in Advanced Computing. He is a full-stack programmer mainly in web and mobile applications with languages namely NodeJs, Angular 6, ReactJs and React Native. He has over-9-year-experience in working with both large and small start-up companies and he is passionate about using top-end solutions and software architecture pattern to solve complex 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.

Overall rating: moderate


  1. Roadmap


Currently, Elrond's roadmap has reached five main milestones starting from the third quarter of 2017 when it began to work in technique.

Q2 2018: basic diagram in terms of technique, completing Proof of Concept

Q2 2018: First Basic Product of Elrond Prototype

Q4 2018: launching Elrond's Testnet

Q3 2019: releasing the mainnet

> Roadmap is short, concise but long, and it makes a slow progresses. We contacted and were confirmed that the team were making great efforts in the initial product following the roadmap at the end of Q2 prototype. Then, this schedule will be edited.

There are no Advisor and no public github

  1. Community

Telegram: + 7,9K members

Twitter: +400 follower

         Admin is a member of Elrond's coreteam, actively answering community questions including tokensale or technique.

  1. Conclusion

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!

*Note: All the information (on icogens.com) including tokens sales, “interest level”, ROI rate, hype rate, risk rate are our subjective opinion and only for informational and educational purposes. The information ICO Gens provides is not an investment advice.

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.

Ủy ban Châu Âu quan tâm đến tiềm năng độc quyền của Libra

Ủy ban Châu Âu quan tâm đến tiềm năng độc quyền của Libra

Các cơ quan quản lý chống độc quyền tại Ủy ban Châu Âu, chi nhánh điều hành của Liên minh Châu Âu đã gửi một bảng câu hỏi để xác định xem stablecoin Facebook Libra liệu có phải là một dự án chống cạnh tranh hay không.

Trang thông tin Bloomberg nắm được tin tức qua một tài liệu theo một báo cáo vào ngày 20 tháng 8. Theo báo cáo, ủy ban đã gửi một bảng câu hỏi trước đó vào tháng 8 trong một nỗ lực để tìm hiểu xem các đối thủ có thể cạnh tranh với Hiệp hội Libra và sản phẩm của nó trên cơ sở công bằng hay không. Các cơ quan chức tin rằng Libra có thể cản trở cạnh tranh thông qua trao đổi thông tin và sử dụng dữ liệu của người dùng.

Hơn nữa, các cơ quan quản lý đã bắt đầu điều tra làm thế nào Libra có thể được sử dụng trong các ứng dụng Facebook Whats và Messenger. Phần này của các trung tâm điều tra về cách thức thành viên và quản trị trong Hiệp hội Libra hoạt động.

Báo cáo lưu ý rằng chi nhánh chống độc quyền của Ủy Ban không phải là chi nhánh duy nhất của tổ chức quan tâm đến Libra. Người phát ngôn của bộ phận dịch vụ tài chính của Ủy ban cho biết chi nhánh này đang giám sát sự phát triển thị trường trong lĩnh vực tài sản tiền mã hóa và dịch vụ thanh toán, bao gồm cả Libra và sự phát triển của nó.

Tiền mã hóa mới của Facebook

Như Cointelegraph đã báo cáo trước đây, các quan chức chính phủ khác cũng đã bày tỏ quan ngại về sự thống trị có thể có của Facebook trong lĩnh vực thanh toán. Thượng Nghị Sĩ Hoa Kỳ Sherrod Brown, thành viên của Ủy ban Ngân hàng Thượng viện đã phát biểu vào tháng 6 về việc ông lo ngại Facebook có thể điều chỉnh các điều khoản thanh toán cho các doanh nghiệp như thế nào. Ông nói:

"Điều gì xảy ra khi Facebook buộc các doanh nghiệp bỏ chấp nhận thẻ tín dụng hoặc thẻ ghi nợ của bạn? Bạn có thể bị buộc sử dụng tiền Độc quyền mới của Facebook. Còn các chủ doanh nghiệp nhỏ, buộc phải sử dụng hoặc mất quyền truy cập vào hàng triệu người dùng của Facebook thì sao?"
