Ratings MOBU

Security Token Protocol and Licensed STO Exchange

Similar to how the HTTP protocol defined the internet, MOBU developed the MOB20 standard protocol that defines a set of commands that a security token should implement. MOBU is buying 15% equity in existing operational stock exchange and will have been a sole broker for all security tokens. MOBU will support Reg S, Reg D, Reg CF and Reg A+ compliant security token offerings, and with the incorporated ability to select experienced legal counsel across multiple jurisdictions within the platform, token issuers can be sure they can create compliant tokens within their local jurisdictions and also have a secondary market to trade on. STO issuers using mob20 protocol will receive a discount on exchange listing and traders using MOBU will receive a discount on transaction fees. Mobu will declare an annual dividend and burn tokens to ensure price appreciation for investors. The MOBU token will power both the issuance platform and security token exchange.

I have no problem with the team and advisors as they are both solid and strong.

The concept is not unique but interesting in the context that many more STOs will be developed in the future and this platform matters.

MVP is good in the video but not enough to have an assessment. Love to see its beta version soon.

I like the laddered objectives of 10-20-30m and many associated agencies to support.

I find milestones very vague and I would love to see specific non-ICO, but product/business related milestones there.

Accessing whitepaper, I get the following error:
Your connection is not secure

The owner of www.mobu.io has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

I understand it may not mean much and we can bypass, but these little attention to details gives me the confidence.

I like their token distribution model and KYC being approved is a plus.

I just realize, the whole website gives me the above error: http://prntscr.com/kgyrog
when accessed with "www" which is how the hyperlink is in ICOBench.

That is def. something to fix. In crypto world where security is already a major concern, keeping in mind normal consumers, I would fix this asap.

The vision isn't impressive either. Will await MVP as well.

Once the site issues are fixed, I will move Product 1/5 to 2/5. When I see MVP, I will move it to 3/5.

-------------------

Update:
As promised, the firefox issue is fixed and I adjusted the rating accordingly.

And reply to Juan:
I hope you see that my review appreciates so many points as much as it found issues.

It also specified clearly how I would increase the rating if certain aspects are met, which is happening here.

I would request you to relook at your aggressive and defensive response. If you would like to discuss each point/concern I have and want to address it, I am more than happy to do it and reevaluate it. But that cannot happen unless you are open for feedback. If you feel your investors do not care about these, I don't see a reason why you would even respond here and your team contacted me in LinkedIn to update rating post firefox fix.

This is a good concept to handle STOs. This is a reality that is approaching quickly.

This is not financial advice or a recommendation to invest in this or any other ICO. Investors must perform their own due diligence and not rely on external ratings to make their final investment decisions. ICOs are risky and 100% loss of capital is possible.

Team - educated and most members experienced. No clue as to what advisors advise on, sign of potential profligacy of investors, funds.

Vision - roadmap not very clear, not the first project in this area, have some misgivings with a platform policy on STOs, each project is different and tokenising securities seems like guilding the gold in my opinion.

Product - no MVP available yet.

Although the concept of a decentralized platform acting as a sole broker for all security tokens is nothing new, MOBU intends to offer dividends to customers every year. This offer might just be the extra incentive that’ll make potential investors consider the South African-based company.
ù
The value of the hard cap at 9,500,000 USD is just right for the project. Nothing too much that the team can’t handle.

The MOBU team and the individuals on the advisory board have many years of experience and expertise between them. I believe those qualities will be enough to make the project succeed.

The following is a list of facts associated with MOBU team and their previous actions. Information is provided by me personally as a long time active member of the community, who have previously exposed projects like LAToken and BitConnect. Information is provided for other members of crypto community for them to be prepared to seriously consider possibility of investing in this project.

1) Almost every single member of MOBU core team was a member of an infamous Zabercoin, project that turned out to be a flop according to many reports of the community members.

2) Spring of 2018 Juan Engelbrecht reached out and basically admitted his mistakes for Zabercoin and wanted to start everything from the beginning. He mentioned he has a project and asked me to be his head advisor. He said he had no budget, just an idea. Nevertheless, the project sounded reasonable and we talked about MOBU, spending countless hours over the phone discussing the name, the logo, etc, and so, I have advised him and helped him.

Politely, I asked him to put our agreement regarding all the terms for my work and regulation of the project on paper from the very beginning, but he never seemed to care much about it. He kept on postponing it, meantime using me to get first-hand information on all matters pertaining to launching ICOs, including actual terms and conditions, particulars about collections, names, pre-ICOs, main ICOs, legislations, to name a few.

Time went by and I finally confronted him with the same facts I noticed with Zabercoin - no MVP, lack of a complete professional technical team, etc. All the same mistakes were repeated, indicating his lack of respect for advisors - the lack of recognition of my work would only be the LEAST of my concerns. But my name was in the roster of advisors, whitepaper, posters - on their website, here on ICOBench and who knows where else!

Other main reason for my confrontation with Juan was not submitting to my directions on the matter of certain irregularities being repeated in MOBU from Zabercoin. He grew belligerent and became a totally different person and spoke unprofessionally and below the business communication level, which had me upset and worried me, to the point that I decided to make this matter public, concerning Juan Engelbrecht and MOBU, for my protection and that of members of crypto community who might be defrauded.

This is my personal statement on this matter of Belkin versus Engelbrecht, not actually versus MOBU, as I am afraid that some of those who have joined his team may have been misled by the misrepresentation that I am the head advisor. I exhort those who may not have known the truth about this matter and the character of the person they are now engaging with to reconsider their involvement.

Are Juan Engelbrecht and MOBU worth your trust and investment?

UPD:

1) This was never a personal issue. I could not care less about upvotes or downvotes. I know what actually happened and I stay proud that I have shared the actual facts. Let the time be the judge of who was right.

2) I will not be providing anyone with my ETH address or any other meaning of payment as this issue WAS NEVER ABOUT THE MONEY, no matter how hard MOBU CEO is willing to make it look like it. MOBU is actually trying to find a way to make peace now, but I am not for sale. Whatever facts happened will actually stay public but I have already moved on as I am not doing any kind of PR for this project. They have already leeched enough out of me.

3) I was NEVER a part of the Zabercoin team, this is a complete hoax. I was invited to be an Advisor, I have advised the project for a minor period of time, and then I HAVE ASKED TO BE REMOVED FROM THE PROJECT even as an Advisor because of what I have learned about the project itself and Juan's way of doing business. This is why I also NEVER actually agreed on being a part of MOBU and only complimented it in our private conversations out of pure politeness, I wanted to give Juan a chance when he said that he admits that Zabercoin was not the way to do business and he promised me that MOBU will be different. Unfortunately, some people never change.

4) I clearly see that, unfortunately, Juan will never understand the core libertarian values of crypto community. I admit my mistake in becoming involved with him at all, failing to see the true colors. I publicly promise not to fall for anything like this again. Only true and legit community team projects.

5) I am not deleting anything. It's simply impossible here. I am just adding more facts to my review, editing it. And every time this happens, the system automatically removes the past reply as not relevant. It would be great if CEO of a technological startup (and Juan tries to pose as such) would know and understand such simple tech moments.

White paper - The white paper is based on opening a crypto exchange focussed on security tokens. The lack of secondary market for these STO’s and ETO’s is a pretty niche market which this ICO focuses upon. The trend of ICO’s shifting from utility to equity/ security would be a certainty in the upcoming days. The ability to invest in these kind of tokens (Reg. D, Reg.A ,etc certified) would definitely be a huge plus for any investor. It contains all the relevant materials for an investor to review it and invest with confidence.

Team - The core team is experienced, trustable and diversified with a strong advisory panel.

Tokenomics - The token deployment and funding allocation are within reasonable limits. The 1% fee for ICO’s to be listed is also within reasonable limits as exclusive STO crypto exchanges are a rarity rather than the norm.

Business Model - The business model is quite clear including all the specifics. They have a clear roadmap with 5 confirmed STO’s on their platform (Verify them first before investing in this platform). The potential is huge as being the first off the blocks could be a game-changer.

MVP/ DApp/ Working Product  - The have blockchain based MVP (Alpha version) but it more than makes up in all other aspects!

I like the team behind behind the project, they seem very capable in completing the task at hand. The idea is not actually original and security is one of society's major concerns, especially when it comes to the crypto space but with some work and fixes, along with a Beta version to see actualization of the product, then it will settle potential investors minds and gather the right audience.

I don't have much confidence in the team. Providing a single point of flotation of securities is a tall order and I see loopholes in the whitepaper where pieces don't come together. The vision needs refining and until we see the MVP, we are not so reassured about the platform working as "envisioned" as well.

Definitely in the right space. Team appears ok, but no A-listers on board or on management team. 1 PhD advisor helps. Team and advisory board could be stronger. Engelbrecht (CEO) has the right type of experience but only has a Bachelors and it appears it is a husband/wife team on exec team, which can be problematic (personal politics gets into business that weakens team performance and delivery). Product market-fit is likely strong as new entrants into space will be competing for standardization (Mobu v. Polymath, Harbor, etc.). No product roadmap/features that are extremely innovative. Not an Apple, but appears to trying (more later...). HQ in South Africa is not ideal... not known as a technology or blockchain innovation cluster/center where many deals/money/relationships are formed.

Now this is how to float a Whitepaper. Business Plan, Comparative Analysis/Advantage, Business Case model and solutions all intact. Use-case is relevant to the industry. Great team with cognate experience in relevant fields of expertise. Road map seems achievable and all encompassing. I would love to see an MVP definitely.

Team looks solid and certainly the market for security tokens has substantial potential however there are some things that concern me.

There are already a few players in the market and some of them already have a working platform something that Mobu is not even close to (their Beta is scheduled for Jul-2019). Furthermore I don't see any differentiation from players that are already offering security tokens.

The project at this stage is not much more than a whitepaper and I don't see much emphasis on building a product.

Apart from that, they condition the development of an exchange to raising over $30M. I've seen exchanges being built from scratch by teams with a fraction of that money so not sure how to justify that.
