In our Quick reviews series we introduce interesting initial coin offering projects that might inspire you to do your own research and decide whether an idea and its development is worth your investment. It’s not an endorsement.
Today we are looking at CryptoCurve.
What problem(s) does it target?
CryptoCurve is an all-in-one digital wallet platform whose launch is supposed to make insufficient access to banks or credit cards in many parts of the world a thing of the past. At the same time, it wants to streamline the management of and access to digital assets, while making buying, selling and trading processes less confusing for an average costumer. CryptoCurve acknowledges that crypto wallets are a must today, but it wants to make their functionality go beyond mere imitation of bank accounts. Instead, this platform aims to make the wallet use intuitive, easy and available on the go.
Who the team members are?
The team is made up of blockchain enthusiasts with professional and educational backgrounds in system engineering, neural networks, smart contracts, machine learning and database management. It is helmed by the company’s founder and CEO Joshua Halferty, who worked at Hewlett Packard Enterprise as a technical project manager. CryptoCurve architecture developer is Andrew Kerrison, blockchain code reviewer and infrastructure engineer at several companies.
At what stage the project is?
Token pre-sale is set from July to September 2018. Within Q3 of 2018, they plan to complete the CURV public token sale. Basic wallet functionality was set to be offered on the platform’s website within Q2 according to roadmap, but no further details have been announced since.
What the main near-term milestones in their roadmap are?
Q3 2018 should see the CryptoCurve enabling the custom pooling for Wanchain ICOs, as well as allowing its users to directly participate in ICOs from their wallets. Later this year, the team plans to offer cross-chain functionality and support for Ethereum ICO pooling, while the users should be able to track their assets via the native platform. In 2019, CryptoCurve plans to add cross-chain trading support, together with the ability to purchase cryptocurrencies with a bank account or credit card directly through the mobile app.
Token sale starts in July, and lasts for a month. Exact dates have not been set yet. Whitelisting is open, and Canada, China and USA cannot participate.
Most important partnerships?
Wanchain: blockchain ecosystem platform enabling cross-chain transaction and transfers of digital assets. Under the partnership agreement, CryptoCurve will serve as its front end, making it possible to start exchanging all cryptos registered with Wanchain upon the release of CryptoCurve wallet.
Pulse Lab: a company in charge of supporting the implementation of various projects in the crypto industry. It partnered with CryptoCurve to help the platform expand its ecosystem through the connections with investors, partners and advisors.
How large their community is?
CryptoCurve has 2700 Twitter followers, while their Telegram channel numbers almost 11000 members. A dedicated Facebook page has about 250 followers.
