Friend is the first true implementation of liquid computing. Every Friend user has a personal Workspace (think of it like a desktop with files and apps) that is accessible from anywhere, on any device, with the same experience.
The Friend Network is a decentralised network of nodes (computers) which hosts users’ Workspaces and enables the sharing of hardware resources. Anyone can choose to turn their home computer into a Friend Network node, earning FRND tokens in exchange for adding new storage and compute resources to the network.
The Friend Store enables users to discover exciting new apps and start running them instantly with one click. It also allows non-blockchain technology service providers to sell their services to Friend users by signing agreements with the commercial arm of Friend. Thus the Friend Store will become a one-stop-shop for new blockchain apps and legacy services, with all purchases being made using FRND tokens.

Really impressive project, one of the best ICOs at this time.
Good whitepaper, well designed and developed.
Strong and experienced team, big and balanced.
Mvp working and very good partners as golem and Huawei.
The idea is really good, I'll love to save my data on a secure and powerful blockchain. You can share your computer resources with the network and get tokens, like a masternode but easier, really nice.
Very good and strong project.

As ICT specialist and former System and Network Administrator I can assure that this approach is our future of using devices and software on computers. Actually is the more convinient way to reach "Friends" wherever and whenever anyone be - our personal data and communication are at the safe place - blockchain.

As a business model, I think that the project is running the default route of success.
Team members' experiences are abundant and existence of excellent business partners gives light. The solution is clear and depicts comprehensive and ideal Dapps. A white paper that has a historical backdrop as a company, not a start-up company, is also clear.

Super strong team, existing (working) MVP and a grand vision for the future.
What's not to like? Well, perhaps that the hard-cap is incredibly high and that the team seems to ignore some basic facts of ICO marketing (it's a rough game of winners takes it all). The Telegram channel with 71k members is dead silent, where's the hype?
The whitepaper covers most and is easy to understand, yet provides insight on important features, tokenomics and the future use-cases of the token.
Strong partnerships with established blockchain projects (like Golem) and off-chain businesses like Huawei.
I'd love to see Friend succeed but there are bits and pieces missing in the puzzle. I've not yet made my own investment decision.
