  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.

IBM áp dụng Blockchain Tech cho Trung tâm dữ liệu Lenovo

IBM áp dụng Blockchain Tech cho Trung tâm dữ liệu Lenovo

Gã khổng lồ công nghệ toàn cầu của Mỹ IBM đã ký một thỏa thuận mới với nhà sản xuất PC Trung Quốc Lenovo để áp dụng blockchain trong dịch vụ khách hàng của Lenovo, theo thông cáo báo chí vào ngày 25 tháng 4.

IBM, nhà phát triển hàng đầu thế giới về các bằng sáng chế blockchain sau Alibaba, sẽ áp dụng công nghệ blockchain trong các quy trình dịch vụ khách hàng tại Tập đoàn Trung tâm Dữ liệu Lenovo. Cụ thể, Lenovo sẽ sử dụng công nghệ blockchain để giám sát chuỗi cung ứng phần cứng và phần mềm được sử dụng trong các trung tâm dữ liệu của mình.

Blockchain tech sẽ là một trong số các thành phần mà IBM sẽ tích hợp vào các hệ thống khách hàng của Lenovo, bao gồm trợ lý ảo cho hỗ trợ kỹ thuật, công cụ cá nhân hóa nâng cao Client Insight Portal, cũng như công nghệ thực tế tăng cường.

Như IBM đã báo cáo vào năm 2017, các doanh nghiệp toàn cầu chi 1,3 nghìn tỷ đô la cho 265 tỷ cuộc gọi dịch vụ khách hàng mỗi năm, trong khi 50% các cuộc gọi đó được báo cáo là không giải quyết được vấn đề.

Theo thông cáo báo chí, thỏa thuận mới giữa IBM và Lenovo là một cột mốc quan trọng khác trong mối quan hệ của hai công ty bắt đầu từ năm 2005. Năm 2014, Lenovo đã mua lại doanh nghiệp máy chủ IBM trong một thỏa thuận trị giá 2,3 tỷ USD.

Vào tháng 2 năm 2018, Lenovo đã nộp bằng sáng chế cho Văn phòng nhãn hiệu và bằng sáng chế của Hoa Kỳ để xác minh hệ thống về tính toàn vẹn của các tài liệu vật lý, sử dụng “bảo mật blockchian.”

Gần đây, Lenovo đã đăng một bài viết để giải thích cách công ty hợp tác với công ty phần mềm lớn của Mỹ Intel để tạo ra các giải pháp dựa trên Giải pháp chọn Intel cho Blockchain: Hyperledger Fabric. Lenovo đã viết rằng giải pháp blockchain của họ sẽ dựa trên danh mục cơ sở hạ tầng trung tâm dữ liệu ThinkSystem hàng đầu trong ngành gồm các sản phẩm máy chủ, lưu trữ, mạng và phần mềm.

Gần đây, gã khổng lồ công nghệ IBM đã được trao bằng sáng chế cho phương pháp chia sẻ dữ liệu di động sử dụng công nghệ sổ cái phân tán.
