OSA Decentralized (OSA DC) is the world's first decentralized AI-driven marketplace providing real-time solutions to retailers, manufacturers and consumers.
OSA is a successful existing business established in 2015. We provide services for world leading consumer product retail and manufacturers, including Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, JTI, Mars, L'Oreal, Metro Cash & Carry, and many others.
After two years of development in close partnership with ECR organization that unites more than 70 leading manufacturers and retailers, we developed proof of concept in 2016, and as of 2017 deployed OSA Hybrid Platform (OSA HP) - Big Data platform powered by AI that manages products optimal shelf availability in retail stores in real time.
Optimal shelf availability is the biggest problem in global consumer retail, costing manufacturers and retailers 400 billion dollars in lost sales per year. It is caused by business processes' inefficiencies along the supply chain and in the retail stores. OSA HP integrates with the big data systems of the participating retail chains and then combines optical recognition and machine learning technologies to issue alerts to the in-store staff each time our algorithms discover there might be a problem with optimal shelf availability of the products being distributed by our clients.

The WP has not been improved and remains too technical (no financials, sufficient marketing and business planning). I have checked Githab - no mvp. My rating can be improved back after explanation

Team is huge and solid. I am happy as the team has received some funding for development. That is a great start.
The AI and blockchain combination is a great concept that will revolutionize this market if properly implemented.
The only thing I am concerned about is its MVP which is not available. GitHub can't be considered a MVP.
The business have been setup since 2015 so there must be something to have a look at too.

Highly commercial product with a solid team to boot. Proven company and concept. Just needs to ensure they follow through with blockchain as a key tenet of their deployment.

It’s built on the already proven OSA Hybrid Platform and it has generated over $1mln USD revenue since its launch.
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.

It looks big team...but more than half of the people (mostly top advisors) doesn't have OSA in their LinkedIn profile and I couldn't find their involvement or authenticity on their social media or anywhere! I find this team so desperate focusing on $1m revenue that I cannot see anything else!
Whitepaper is good and has lot of technical info and competition analysis but while looking at their Github, there's no activity at all!
MVP link is pointing to their Github repository where I cannot find anything!
22.5% tokens worth $40m - which means they want to value their tokens over 100m! Too optimistic!! I don't see ROI for investors for this project even-though they made it looks big!

The service has been develop for two years since 2016 to solve the critical problem in every comsumer retail. I think it’s worth to try by leverage AI to analysis SO, PO and SCM big data, where traditionally just use some statistic analysis for predition.
I personally like such kind or project because they really thinking solve problem and make a better world.

Team - well educated and experienced, top tier and already making a success of this project by making it a revenue making business.
Vision - brilliant use of blockchain to solve supply chain issues with a useful solution. Not a disruptive force, but a 'blue ocean' solution to a $400bn problem for retailers. Some big names already using he platform.
Product - up and running, $1m in revenue already.
I would like to wish the team good luck in implementing this project, but they've already done so. Op ire.

The team has proficient experience in their respective fields and the same goes for the advisory board.
The project is built on top a proven platform that has shown promise and trust from its users to go into development.
MVP is also already active. If I had to knock them on something it would be that the roadmap could use some more effort but overal this looks like a solid project with real world use.

Having a strong inventory management system allows you to have greater cash on hand. You know exactly how much stock you need to buy in order to fulfill all sales and receive maximum revenue. While poor inventory management ties up your cash and hurts your profits, great inventory management can save your business a ton of money and increase profits.
The latest innovative technologies can offer a blockchain-powered solution capable of addressing all major retail issues, reducing product waste, and uniting producers, data providers, retailers, and consumers into a single network.
Optimal Shelf Availability Decentralized (OSA DC) platform intends to be one of the first decentralized AI-driven marketplaces to use the blockchain technology to offer solutions to retailers, manufacturers and consumers around the world. This powerful combination will stimulate the development of myriads of B2B and B2C services on decentralized blockchain and smart contracts based platforms.
The blockchain can be used for inventory tracking, so problems like overstocking and understocking will be greatly reduced. Product waste can also be controlled via the blockchain and the immutability of this technology provides what could be considered a much more reliable way to make business with the clients.
OSA ecosystem will unite various parties which are disconnected today - supply chain members, data providers, data scientists, IT specialists, apps developers, computation power providers, laboratories, regulators and end consumers.
OSA is already a stable working company that offers OSA Hybrid Platform functioning to provide reliable collaboration with the Efficient Consumer Response that unites more than 70 of Europe’s leaders in manufacturing and retail sales in more than 40 countries. OSA DC offers OSA Hybrid Platform Solution advancement. It utilizes a set of breakthrough technologies that help overcome weaknesses when implementing the solution. Namely, transparency lack and people making mistakes working with supply chain industry. To provide transparency, it employs AI, blockchains and smart contract technology so that supply chain company information is secured from frauds and illegal use.
The company has already grown a lot since its inception and has many business partners. The services of the OSA DC are used by companies like L’Oreal, Danone, Mars, Coca Cola, Metro, JTI, EFEC, Sun InBev, Retail Chain Magnit and Pepsico. The services provided by the company are based on the OSA Hybrid Platform, an AI-powered Big Data platform that monitors optimal shelf availability. It was launched in 2017 and already generates revenue.
To scale and develop OSA platform, the team behind the project aims to raise funds by offering the community its ERC-20 compliant OSA tokens. They are used to drive the blockchain's ledger and smart contract functionality as a network fuel. The OSA tokens are used between the platform users as a payment method and as a platform reward. The OSA tokens do not provide token holders with any ownership or other interest in the Company. WP clearly states that the OSA token is intended to be used via the platform and thus it is not an investment but a utility token.
In order to create the OSA DC platform and comply with the marketplace requirements the OSA team decided to use a fork of the NEM blockchain. A corporate permissioned blockchain (Mijin) was selected for the OSA MainNet. From the date of the launch, the circulating Ethereum-based OSA tokens will start exchanging to Mijin-based OSA Coins at 1:1 rate. This will be implemented in order to speed up the transactions time and make them cheaper.
There is a clearly defined and understood business model - retailers get free of charge service while consumer goods manufacturers pay for the service, whilst increasing sales volume of its products and optimizing costs, including conducting expensive regular retail audits. Both participating retailers and manufacturers get sales increase. As a result participating businesses profit from improved efficiencies and synergies, provided by OSA solutions. Consumers and shoppers benefit by paying less when buying products in the participating retail, not having to waste time looking for products suiting their needs and staying healthy by making intelligent and smart product choices.
The OSA project enjoys an adequate presence on social media, but I would say, for such a substantial project these numbers are not remarkable, more participants are needed so it should be able to get a good momentum going.
The OSA website is clear and it has a good amount of information about the OSA Token Generation Event, the problems that it tries to solve, the solution that it wants to develop, a clear roadmap, the team (more than 80 members) and other minor information.
The website has a simple structure and a menu of options that allows everyone to keep investigating about this ICO. There are links to all info in the main page, which makes it easier if a user wants to read it. That allows the reader to avoid scrolling in the main page and find everything just clicking the menu on the top.
This ICO can be seen as quite attractive and relatively safe to invest in. The chances that the project will achieve a success are not bad at all, so it is worth considering. Its concept is rather interesting and appealing while its services might become rather popular in the short or long term perspectives. The return on investment is expected to be quite good, and it is possible that the ICO will generate profit for those supporters who put their money into it.

Good solid team, far-reaching vision which can be adopted by more countries, a very sensible and tested product already operational on the OSA hybrid platform - all components are ensuring success of the same project on the blockchain. Hardcap should be reached by efficient marketing.
Rated on Jun 18, 2018
Very good and big team! They also have MVP which is always good for an ICO.
I think the hard cap could be a bit lower though, but in overall, I like the project.
It's very good also that as I see, KYC is working successfully.
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.
