Model catalogs on blockchain? Hmm. I dont believe it is necessary. Apart from the strange idea I dont find a strong team here with proper blockchain or ICO or business experience. Their Linkedin profiles' connections confirm this conclusion. But as far as i understand there can be some additional applications of this technology if well developed

A very practical concept. I like the team profiles and experience. KYC is a plus. I don't think any ICO without KYC should be over 4+ anymore. They have a good sense of marketing. A project without strong marketing is less likely to earn the investors ROI in the long run. Kudos to CRYSTALS on that part.

I think this is a product that is looking to solve a real problem but they are 6 to 12 months behind competition like MDL Talent who I think are using a blockchain more suited to the type of project . MDL have struggled a bit for funding and think that this will find a similar issue . Roadmap to 2022 on delivery yet team with 15% can cash out 50% day one and rest after a year , thats a major mismatch that I dont like at all

KYC completed, very interesting team and vision.
The only thing I am mostly wondering is if there are partnerships in place, as without that, I doubt that the platform would take off. The modeling industry works with agencies and I feel they are a big factor of either success or failure in a project like this.

I changed my initial estimate, only because Nikita Yakubovsky knows his business. Indeed, infrastructure projects are a more important element in the development of technology.

Nikita from Crystals has taken the time to reach out to me and inform me on some of the aspects I was referring to in my initial review.
Apparantly not everybody from the Crystals team is listed (or has their full experience on LinkedIn):
"Nestor Dubnevich (FinTech, Blockchain) - he is a senior lawyer of JUSCUTUM at ICO directions. He advised RentBerry ICO, which fundraised hardcap in 1 day.
Denys Kostenko (FinTech Marketing) - marketing manager of Swiss bank DukasCopy, who is deeply involved into cryptocurrency world.
Antonio Sviridov (Blockchain) - the member of a UNIT Factory (the best one among such-like companies in CIS zone), he is working in the blockchain lab as a consultant, Еthеrеum and EOS smart contract developer.
Ernestas Paznekas (Blockchain) - blockchain developer of such a project as Lympo ICO, which was successfully finished."
The modeling industry faces cases such as a violation, rape, corruption, and unbreakable walls on the way to the top agencies. And the Team at Crystals believe that with their project they can solve these problems. Their platform operates under Escrow principle: after each order request, funds freezes by a smart-contract and can be unlocked through 2FA (more detailed procedure can be found in WP). No third parties will have access to the transaction process itself - everything proceeds automatically (for ex. agency won’t be able to black out the model from cooperation with any fashion brand).
Would like to see this going live on how this will play out.

It's a very simple yet interesting concept with good use of blockchain solutions in an industry that could use with some innovations. I see great potential in this project.
Team has completed KYC which is another proper step.
Experts are independently and voluntarily contributing to the community. If no expert has rated the ICO, only ICO analyzer's results are used. Always research before investing as these ratings should not be taken as an investing guide of any kind.
Ratings and ICO analyzer results are being updated (re-calculated) every few hours.
