Team: Need to be more diversified that should include international experts and staff to expand it globally.

Vision: It looks promising but it can also create a feeling that the product is an annoying advertisement program and easily be blocked and adblocker.

Product: Good but same like vision part. Need to improve!

Increasing my scores after some discussions with the team. I have subsequently to my initial review and reading of the docs reassessed. The team have impressed in being active, following up and open which is a good sign for ongoing success. The recent events as well in the big social media world also I think may help some adoption here as users especially younger will look to share to more then the standard normal big 4 or so. If this then drives the growth to newer sites its good news for all and adds vakue, new people want one click easinest and this may help drive that

I originally liked this project and gave it 14 out of 15. If I could actually give a lower score than rock bottom 111 - I would. I am getting abused by the team on various IM services for my refusal to up the score from 111. Which is quite pathetic. At one point, the CEO also replied with a lie on ICObench stating that I was contacted only to thank me for my high score. A screenshot quickly proved that one wrong. Lying from the top is not a good sign.

I have had to downgrade this rating due to someone from the team (another advisor from ICOBench on top of that) for approaching me on Linkedin to give a better mark for no reason. This is just wrong.

Sorry to the team but a 14 out of 15 was a good fair mark and sending out people to push me to give a full 15 is unethical.

It looks to me like there are spending human resources to jack the vote here. This is no longer an honest, objective voting process with these kind of tactics.

I am a straightforward, honest analyst of ICOs, I have been involved in over 40 of them, written about hundreds of them at Blockchain News and have been judging hundreds of startups before this for Horizon 2020 at European Commission and six years at Innovate UK as a startup judge. What this is... is simply judge tampering.

To respond to the CEO reaction. Do you honestly think I would downgrade your score if someone contacted me to thank me for my generous 14/15? No of course not. I was hustled to give a perfect score outside the framework of ICObench and I find that unethical. Particularly since it was a member of your own team.

Hello. Did I understand you correctly that the personal appeal to you with gratitude for the high rating of 455 and the desire to answer all your questions served as the basis for lowering the rating to 111? How is this possible?

UPD. Dear Richard, you’ve been approached by our team to tell you more about the project and how we execute. There is nothing bad in giving more details about the project and team’s experience. So we disagree that there were “no reasons”, the facts were given by us to you together with our request. We believe that your current rating now does not reflect the fair valuation of our project and looks very emotional. You speak yourself that you downgraded the rating for the ONLY reason that you were “approached by the project’s team”. Is this the fair reason to rate 111? You yourself admit above that the previous 455 “was a good fair mark”.

We do not doubt your professionalism. I regret that the appeal of a member of our team to you with an explanation became the occasion for your indignation.

We hope that you return to professional judging of our project. Thank you for understanding.

UPD 2. Richard, we've contacted you to thank you, to answer your questions, and as a result to ask you to make an upgrade for your rating, I have screenshots. This is on condition that you would be satisfied with our answers. So everyone does. Everybody gets acquainted with experts. This is a normal practice. We ask if our answers are sufficient to raise the rating. If not, we do not force anyone. We are an honest team. No one forces you to anything. And the fact that you wrote that the team had contacted you in private messages, so you reduced the rating from 455 to 111 - this is complete nonsense.

What Sharpay aims at doing is to popularize the sharing of a system among the users to help track rewards generated within it. The very nature of the promotional that aims at taking its successes to the masses through a group of satisfied customers would no doubt bring on the success that it so craves.

The easy integration with blockchain systems would make this application future ready as also the combination with the leading social media platforms.

If there were a strong negative to the system, then it is that, only increased collaboration among users would ensure its success. This would mean that if the chain of shares were to be interrupted at any time, the whole process would be scuttled.

In contrast with all the good reviews, it has taken too long for the team to do the funding, so I think there is something off here. In fact, the ICO was open for several months and yet the total collected amount is not much.

The product is very simple, and blockchain is fit to serve its purpose.

I hope you will be successful but I don't believe you have got enough interest from the community.

Well, the team looks strong, so it's a 5.
However, there are 2 issues that are bothering me:

1) Why do you need a blockchain? I know at least half-dozen similar projects (dead and living) that offer similar product without any need in the DLT. And frankly I can't see why the team has decided to use blockchain for this particular product.

2) Quote:
"Sharpay will quarterly allocate 90% of the proceeds to ensure the redemption of tokens from their holders (investors and users).
The program starts according to the results of the 3rd quarter of 2018. The price of the buyback is based on the nominal price of a token at 0.00003 ETH what is nearly $0.01 at the moment of the official launch in November, 2017."

Guys, it's a clear security token offering and I don't see any requirements for accreditation of investors, the tokensale is open for anyone.
Do you have a Legal Opinion about the SHRP token stating it as an utility token? I would like to see it.

Mike, thanks for giving us a good rating for our Team, Vision and Product.

1. I am always surprised when the discussion starts wither there is a need for a blockchain or not. I believe that the blockchain is needed EVERYWHERE, this is a new era of digital technologies, a new era for the entire Internet network! The more projects will join blockchain — the more valid all the information on the Internet will be. In our case:

Stage 1 — emission on Ethereum according to the ERC20 standard of the required volume of tokens for free sale, provision of the internal economy of the project, and for distribution among users for multisharing and promotion of content — the blockchain is used as a financial register.

Stage 2 — to increase the throughput and reduce commissions, the development and launching of an independent decentralized blockchain — the blockchain is used to issue, distribute tokens between sites and users for social activity, and to store information.

Starting from the second stage, the income from the blockchain will be received not only by users, but also by sites for buttons installed.

Blockchain is not for geeks, blockchain is for EVERYONE!

2. We have restrictions for countries where our tokens can be securities. If you have noticed, we specifically updated the information on ICObench about our limitations.

Mike, our company is registered in Belize, in Belize there are no restrictions on transactions with cryptocurrencies, we have the right to sell our tokens without restrictions to anyone. But we do not sell our tokens to the residents of those countries where our tokens can be recognized as securities.

Mike, we comply with the laws of not only Belize, but also other countries.

To sale tokens to residents of those countries where the cryptocurrency is not restricted, there is no need to accredit investors.

Sharpay is an all in one blockchain project that aims to revolutionize sharing content on the web. The main advantage of the project is that it will benefit end user and help them earn money by sharing content. Also, it can benefit businesses by lowering overall social media expenditure as Sharpay’s reward system will encourage viewers to share good content. Sharpay token has a clear economy and its use in the project’s eco-system is justified. There is a clearly defined and understood business model. The team has an adequate professional experience to succeed. The project is backed by the community in the Telegram chat, Facebook and Twitter. I guess that this particular project would not be overlooked by investors.

I think that blockchain technology definitely has a role to play in disrupting oniline advertising and marketing. That is why I'm always talking about BAT (Basic Attention Token) and their efforts in this area.

Monetizing sharing links seems like an obvious thing to do and providing a blockchain based record of shares is a good way to try and foster trust that shares and clicks are real given that something like 50% of all ad impressions and clicks are fake.

But I'm not really seeing anything super revolution here to justify a 5 for vision - they talk about patent applied of tech but don't really say what it is.

The team is probably more like 3.5 (i'm now using 3 as "average" in my ratings) but without knowing more about them I couldn't be firm about bumping to 4. The demonstrated experience seems to be mostly in the executive level vs. actual developers. Which is not to say they don't have good devs, just that it isn't obvious - there is only the CTO and a single developer listed and neither brings demonstrated blockchain experience, just "enthusiast" level qualifications.

As for the product - well as yet we don't have anything launched and although I was able to get a share to work using the links on their website I have no idea if it is actually utilizing any real blockchain based code - even though it promised me 1 Sharpay token I've no idea how I might redeem that.

The whitepaper is above average I would say, but the Github repo link doesn't give much of a clue about what there is either - as best I can tell it is just the public website source code.

Also on the product side I'm not seeing evidence that they have managed to make headway with finding customers for it. If it is as awesome and popular as claimed I would hope they could have found some websites that will commit to at least trailing it.

On the technology side I'd be much happier if the team wasn't devoting time to launching their own blockchain. I think it would have been much better to launch this as a Smart Media Token on STEEM or be an early adopter of EOS which will be crazy fast and free to use. One thing you definitely have to work hard at is making on-boarding drop-dead simple and having your own blockchain could be both a blessing and a curse. It will certainly create a bunch of work to distract you from the main focus I think. If I was them I'd be writing my code to be blockchain agnostic...

I also don't like this reliance on patented tech. Patents are kind of antithetical to decentralized systems and most of the time are expensive distractions. IMO by the time a company has to bust out patent lawyers to start suing competitors it has already lost the game. This is a space where you want to win by amazing execution to bring a drop-dead simple and low-friction product to market and get mass adoption quickly.

Furthermore although "patent" is mentioned many times in the whitepaper there isn't a single reference to the claimed patent that protects some of the IP. If it was relevant and impressive I would think it would be a no-brainer to have a link to it.

My overall rating is that although this shows promise and I wish them all the best with rolling it out I think most of the guaranteed upside lies with using Sharpay to share links, and eventually as a publisher once its adoption by the community has been demonstrated.

I also don't like this reliance on patented tech. Patents are kind of antithetical to decentralized systems and most of the time are expensive distractions. IMO by the time a company has to bust out patent lawyers to start suing competitors it has already lost the game. This is a space where you want to win by amazing execution to bring a drop-dead simple and low-friction product to market and get mass adoption quickly.

Furthermore although "patent" is mentioned many times in the whitepaper there isn't a single reference to the claimed patent that protects some of the IP. If it was relevant and impressive I would think it would be a no-brainer to have a link to it.

My overall rating is that although this shows promise and I wish them all the best with rolling it out I think most of the guaranteed upside lies with using Sharpay to share links, and eventually as a publisher once its adoption by the community has been demonstrated.

Update: 2/8/2018
In response to the comment by Sharpay CEO I would like to say:
1. My review makes no mention that the team "may not be cool enough" and that was certainly not my intent. In fact I generally see it as a bad sign when an ICO packs their advisory board with big names that "look cool" but who probably aren't doing much but lending name recognition. So it is okay that you are "not cool" IMO. My main concern is ability to execute. As I pointed out I don't see strong evidence of that so far. Obviously you know your team well and are confident in them but no one ever tells me they have anything less than an amazing team. As pointed out in my profile it simply cannot be that everyone who says they have an amazing team and amazing idea will succeed - I sincerely believe that around 90% or more will fail and even great teams with great ideas can and do fail. I hope that is not you but I simply have to go based on the evidence I have in front of me.
2. I have googled you, your CTO and developers. I've looked your patent application US 2015/0310505 A1, your Git repos and commit histories, as much history as I can given language limitations, even at corporate filings for Balalike LLP.
3. I have since retried the share buttons on your home page and was able to get them to work. I think there was an issue connecting to one of my social media accounts from my phone. I have been able to post a share, see it in the user dashboard, and get some referral clicks. However I don't know if this is using any real infrastructure and by changing IP address / use of anonymous browser session it was relatively easy to fake some clicks that counted towards referrals. Eliminating fraud would seem to be a very important feature - it's unclear if you have solid solution for that.
4. Finally there is still the issue of how you are going to get publishers using this and if you have any partners and how you will get them.

At this point I'm not inclined to increase scores, but as indicated I'll certainly be willing to look again if there is additional info like:
a) additional team hires
b) non-website code in the Git repo to look at
c) more tech info about the product
d) announced partnerships with content providers

Thank you for your opinion. Do you know what the problem is? I'll tell you.

When you say that our team may not be cool enough, I want you to show me another team who develops a similar project and does it much better than us. We can find a lot of plastic cards, exchanges, virtual banks and other similar projects in the ICObench rating. But as for a really innovative, interesting, and outstanding of the market project... Doesn’t a team of such a project deserve a little more respect from your side?

When you say that the team has not shown themselves before, I want to ask - have you googled me? If googling, you would see that I filed different patent applications on this issue for several years before. Not all of those applications were successful, some ones were refused, but the tenacity of my team worth for a slightly higher praise, doesn’t it? Or have you also googled Mr. Karavaev, who has been an executive top manager for the largest corporations with a billion dollar capitalization? Should we personally be able to write a code or can you believe we have found excellent developers whose qualification allows us to make an excellent product? Believe, it’s so. If people do their bests, achieve the goals then certainly they do what they want. And it’s usually appreciated. This can be trusted.

When you say that you could not get working links for your site, I want to ask you, why? Did you contact our support desk with your question or asked for help? No, you did not. But if you contact us, you will be very surprised we are really helping. Sharpay is a very simple system, it works for everyone.

Yes, perhaps you are right we can use the ready-made blockchain and focus on the product. By the way, the product! You know most of the projects go to Token Sale having just an idea. But we already have a working MVP! Moreover, even the alpha version of the product itself has no analogues in the SMM market with a capitalization of approximately 50 billion dollars! Doesn’t this make our product worth for a higher rating?

We are not ready to convince you, but I assure you, if you look at our project a little bit more objectively and your assessments will be slightly higher, we will do our bests to justify your trust.

UPD: 2/10/2018


In response to the update of your comment, I inform you:

1. Strong full-time project leaders gathered a strong team, which instead of ideas and promises already made a working prototype of the project, which is already used by hundreds of websites and tens thousands of users. Your opinion does not correspond to the facts.

2. You have forgotten to googled our CBDO. He is the man who managed development of the largest innovation fund of a huge country. Turnovers of his past projects were many billions of dollars. This experience and capacity is more than enough to launch our project to the Moon. Your rating for our team does not correspond to the facts.

3. The tasks of safety of our system are paramount. At this stage already we will identify all the cheating. You are writing you do not know about it, but I’m answering you. You have to ask me. I know. Try to cheat our own tokens and you will see that we recognize it and they will not be credited to your account. In our GitHub repositories, it is now open as much code as we need. This is done in order to protect conscientious system participants from cheaters.

All news about the development of our project, information about future partnerships and other information is available by subscribing to our accounts on social networks.

I will defend my project and my team always and everywhere. You can not change your rating, I just want everyone to know that your rating is not objective and does not correspond to the reality.

Sharpay Team is really a very strong team that makes a very interesting and important blockchain project.

The idea is sound. But there is no reason to have a token for this project. This is a "token for the sake of token" project. They could launch this project easily and simply pay the profits and shares out with an existing cryptocurrency. The technology is good and I like the premise, but the idea that there needs to be a token for this is one of the main problems with ICOs today.

Product and Vision: This is an excellent project of Blockchain and utility tokens . The business case is clearly defined and the buyer of Sharpay tokens is assured of the increased traffic as the humans and not a bot has shared their website.
Team: The CEO's LinkedIn profile doesn't show any Media experience . It is interesting see how he will pull through this great idea of pay to share and share to earn model. secondly It is dubious for the CBDO to put Hardvard Business School in the LinkedIn profile.

Love the idea, seems easy understandable and bringing benefit for both webmasters and web users.
However, different social networks have different formats for sharing/writing/posting and sometimes the same message cannot be sent to different portals. But I think this is solvable. I am not sure whether 45,000 ETH is the amount required for implementation. Also, I am not sold why does SharPay needs to be tokenized and why they're targeting to build internal blockchain in the second stage of development.

Project is definitely "too overhyped".

- Hard concept for global implementation. There are no evidences or solid researches that can prove global demand of this product

- Large competitors on the market

- Blockchain is not necessary to solve the problem

- Token appreciation model is doubtful and questionable

- Team has solid background and impressive experience, however some people on advisory board are solely for marketing purposes (Some members have over 10 projects on advisory list, which is simply impossible to handle physically)

Thank you for your positive rating.

As for the team, you are wrong. Our team works full-time only in Sharpay.io. For example, personally I am not an adviser for any other projects, although they invite me. Our technical team and CTO are very high level and work full-time only in Sharpay.io. The development of our project is at such a level that we plan to launch our blockchain ahead of schedule! I know that our CBDO has agreed to advise several projects, but it does not take much of his time. For us it's an honor to help other projects. We are proud of this.

I always appreciate a team with a working MVP before trying to ICO. In terms of overall vision, this makes sense and doesn't appear to be a case of tokenizing merely for fund-raising purposes.

The product is still young, but some serious consideration has been given to the architecture and user experience of the actual button. The user administrative backend, though, still needs to be fleshed out a bit, but I imagine that will come with time.

As is the case with many ICOs, there's a bit more experience with blockchain technologies on the adviser side than there is on the actual team, so that's a minor ding for me. The team does, though, have some experience from GOLOS, which seems to be a Steemit fork. The Golos tokens are trading on Bittrex, so that's a potential boon for investors.

It's also a pet peeve, but it is always concerning when team members on IcoBench, the website, and the whitepaper don't match up. In at least two instances (Marketing Manager and SMM Manager), we have members who are either omitted from a team sheet or have been completely replaced. In a world where ICO team member commitments and identity theft are commonplace, special attention should be paid to congruence across these platforms.

As an aside, I like the name -- it's clever and brand-able.

Best of luck to the team.

While I have no doubt the team can execute, I have some concerns about the product offering: This is dependent on the publishers who will adopt this sharing solution (similar to commenting systems).

The utility of the token will also be tied to the number of publishers (the Network Effect) and in this stage, they are competing against a lot of other options.

The strength of the ICO is based on the team and its patents. Risk seems minimal, but the product offering maybe limited.

Hello Regnard.
Your opinion has a right to exist, but we disagree, I will explain why.

The share buttons of the old generation (such as AddThis, ShareThis, AddToAny) are installed on tens of millions of sites. For example, the AddThis buttons are installed on approximately 14 million sites, and the company AddThis itself was swallowed by Oracle for $200 million.

But the buttons of the old generation of listed companies do not know how to do even half of what the Sharpay button can do.

Moreover, in the roadmap of our development for 3 years, we plan to make installations in less than 1 million sites, which is much less that AddThis has with the product of the old generation. But this will already give us capitalization more than AddThis!

Realistic, is not it? Regnard, I expect that the figures and sums I have voiced are much more convincing than simple words and you will reconsider your position and raise our rating. It is very important, to understand us correctly and accurately.
