Personally, I know some of the investors and advisors. Extremely experienced in scaling up fast with big monies.

Unfortunately, only one out of all the advisors has a LinkedIn profile. This is a serious flag. Either the team does not believe in profiling their advisors properly or these advisors do not even know about this project?

Please correct me if I am wrong. I am most willing to review my rating if shown otherwise.

Hi Igor!

thank you for your comments and we will continue to improve the project.

Most of our team's linkedin profiles are up on the web and under the news and media section, there are a lot of pictures, videos and news articles that feature our celebrities as well as our advisors, including HH Bin Zayed Al Nayan.

Hope these information could strengthen our credibility and also improve your rating towards our project.

Very strong team and backers that will power through any current obstacles. The concept requires extremely good execution, funding and drive to realise. This, I see in the team.

Edit: revising rate as no attempt is made to address any concerns here.. this is weird. Expected more.

Big team members and advisor board, but some team members and advisors linked in profile missing. Will suggest to update this. Vision is clear but how to achieve the vision is not mentioned in enough details. WP needs to improvement about Business plan, Marketing plan. I don't find MVP for me it's in concept level.

Looking forward to see the MVP and will Change my rating. Best of luck team.

Honestly, I don't believe that all stated celebrities take part in this project. So far it looks like a scam for investors. Show proofs that all these stars really are investors. I want to see a video with them saying that it is true. As a last resort, on which blog can we read that they really are investors? Also I see that the end of ICO is in 17 days, but I don't see a powerful community, a normal product and etc. Maybe I am mistaken, and therefore I will wait for real confirmations, but not just words.

Im passionate fan of Pacman.
This project has invited a lot of big names, so it seems that success is realistic.
But when I read the white paper, this looks like a strange project to me.
First of all, there is no concept of softcap, the number of sales schedule is huge, but there is no stepwise setting that should fluctuate depending on the procurement amount. There is no valid MVP.
Also, although prominent investors are presented, the amount of investment does not seem to be included in any calculation against the progress of the project.
Celebrities are already getting various considerations by existing SNS.
Are they not thinking about the possibility of collapsing the position that they have built up so far?

Team - too many core team and advisors who are unverifiable via LinkedIn. Some advisors have less than perfect reputations in the industry. I'm a tad surprised that HH Bin Zayed Al Nayan would allow himself to be listed here given the vociferous protection of his privacy in the UAE. Somewhat of a red flag. I'll also use some of my contacts to see if Michael Owen has invested in this project, just to be certain of the legitimacy of him being posted here.

Vision - Not the first attempt to leverage the 'fandom', not even using blockchain tech. I don't see where the value in this comes from. Celebrities have minimal f-2-f time with fans for a reason, namely to promote the exclusivity that comes with being a celebrity. Giving people the chance to realise they're just like you and I destroys the status of the cult of celebrity. This project appears to destroy the industry it is looking to monetise. I don't see any reason why a celebrity would want to be involved here, when they pay people (agents) to gatekeep their interactions with their fans in the first place.

Product - no MVP, even though a platform would be relatively easy to implement and they already have celebrities on board, according to the WP.

Something about this doesn't ring true with me. Good luck to the team implementing the project, but it's definitely not one for me.

GCOX’s idea of tokenizing celebrity popularity through blockchain is an interesting concept.

Though the team is strong, I believe that they need a strong actionable business plan. The whitepaper says that they already have multiple celebrities on board with the idea. It would be interesting to see how this platform fares in the near future.

White Paper - The white paper is quite clear about the objectives but lacks a clear roadmap related to advantages for investors and strong business plan post ICO. The benefits that investors gain from investing in this token are not clear.

Team - The team composition is filled with heavy hitters but then again most of them don’t have clear commitments to the project as evident from their LI. Makes me a skeptic about the objective of doing a private-sale and ICO, without a MVP after so much investments/ commitments.

Tokenomics - The token distribution is clearly stated and also the utilization of proceeds seems reasonable. No Soft Cap or Hard Cap, just a bunch of Scenario in pitch deck! As an investor quite troublesome to believe on the valuation of Tokens.

Business Model - Having Michael Owen & Manny Pacquiao amongst others as their celebrity is quite appealing but it would have been much better if this ICO stated that they have acquired these celebrity on the platform (and verified by the celebrities themselves) rather than as brand ambassadors (which seems the most likely case). Any clarifications would help!

MVP/ DApp/ Working Product  - Due to the absence of any working product/ MVP the ICO represents more of an idea than an actual reality.

Very questionable team, found multiple advisors with questionable reputation within the community. Vision is a bit clearer, but yet we have seen multiple projects that have tried it. Could be that this project could actually pull this off, but I fail to believe in it personally and I would have to see a strong alpha version of the project working right before I do.

Amazing to see that you guys has teamed up a big number of celebs and millionaires and even billionaires as early investors. But I wonder why you still need this ICO? This is one of my big question.

WP is well written but it is not clear to me on how to get ROI for investors and how to engage celebs? Another point is that you distribute 80% of tokens without any softcap and hardcap. This unsettled milestones make investors worried of their investment as the ICO can last forever until all tokens are sold. I myself don’t have a peace of mind when thinking to invest in the project.

MVP is not available so it is hard to assess the product.

Lots of warning signs on this one. Most notably the celebrity and millionaire endorsements. We need to see proof of this! It wouldnt be the first time a savvy unscrupulous company used famous people's names to gain legitimacy and scam investors.

No MVP available either. This seems to be a case of a company trying to cash in from the wave of ICO's that are happening. If they have so much celebrity backers, they surely dont need to do an ICO?

The difficulty with business models like that is to really attract celebrities. Without reach there will be no benefit for the celebrities to register. And without enough celebrities there won't be enough reach.

Do you have any LOIs of people that want to join?

It all goes down to how desirable the token will be. My assumption is that if the token will be used it will be mainly used be from celebrities that their reputation is declining or they were never really famous at the first place

Such an innovative idea which puts fandom to good use, monetizing it. I see a very competent team, a well-written whitepaper, and the road map looks well planned. What remains to be done - the nitty gritty. Take care to get the ICO well-publicized as that's the key for success of your ICO.

GCOX made it possible to interact with celebrities. Currently, we have SNS like Twitter, but thee are so many hates and celebrities won't be willing to communicate with fans on it. Monetizing interaction with celebrities through blockchain address the problem.

I believe it's a challenging proposition. Maybe it would have worked in ICO 1 a couple of months ago, but today there has to be a clearer business model than I could find in the project material. Suggest work more on those items. Best of luck.

I just don't see this being a need. The team seems to be decent but I just find it hard to see the need for such a product either that or the project was not fully explained properly. I am in the influencer marketing space and have invested in many influencers and just don't see them utilizing such a thing. Personally I think it's just a quick raise money scheme and then see what to do with money after.

For this ICO to succeed it would have to first reach celebrities, then educate celebrities on the token and blockchain, then convince them that this platform is preferable to other merchandising/marketing arrangements (assuming they don't already have contracts for these things), and finally educate and funnel fans into the platform. I don't see this project working, even though it has gargantuan egos on its side.
