ICO website link is not working, Whitepaper is in google drive, Team doen't seams to have experience in relevant field, adding advisers will increase value.
No issue having white paper on google drive?
Combined experience of over 30 years in the industry, you might want to have another read.

Met the team in San Francisco - The vision makes a lot of sense and the team were interesting people. However the way the execution will actually work is yet to be seen.

What I would like to see from this ICO is a clearer reason why they are of value (their service and tokens). Because from the outset, the information in full of jargon and this limits their ICO's to those who understand it.
My thoughts on the product itself: it seems like a cloud-based support service for DApps. The team is quite new and is still getting together.
At this point, this ICO needs to be avoided until further maturity.
If you are struggling with the terminology, you can read the position paper which is a 3 page summary.
Your thoughts on the product, it is not a sup port service. It is a decentralised 0 cost cloud and compute service. Unlike other projects in the space that have costs for the storage.

I don't agree with my fellow "experts" in their ratings on this one.
The whitepaper is highly technical, so it may not be easy to digest. In summary this is a platform play to build a blockchain solution that enables decentralized cloud storage, fast settlement/finality, and the notion of self-forking, all wrapped in a DPOS consensus model.
The value here is in IoT and decentralized apps that can benefit from running in the cloud, using their costless distributed file storage methodology in a wholly integrated platform. Right now, current solutions require using a number of different solutions and building the complex middleware to make sure all of these discrete systems can talk to each other.
The team is based in the US, primarily being recruited out of SJSU and lead by a professor and a close colleague. They have been working aggressively to build the platform.
The notion of self-forking may pose some challenges as new forks need validators but may not have the economic incentive as the main chain for mining. The protocol can account for this, and it is still a better approach then a new blockchain solution that has no ecosystem, or a developed ecosystem that has multiple competing apps on a single chain.
The challenge will be creating awareness of the application and gaining real world usage. There are a lot of competing, well-designed and powerful solutions out there, and the team has yet to release any product and managed the ICO process in a very slow and manual way (i.e. did not use an automated Smart Contract to deploy tokens at the time of the ICO).
It seems they have secured a multitude of partnerships, though without a working product, these are largely symbolic. At least some heavyweights (NEO Global Council) have taken interest in the product, which may help with adoption. Time will tell on how this product performs, long term.
