In itself, this is not a bad project at all. I guess it is the issue with whether it is a security or not. Also no info on the project itself much here. Could be worrying.

It seems to me this is a bad project and like a ponzi scheme without any good plan on how to make profits to pay holders interest. With guaranteed 10-20% without a convincing business plan and a very think team without well known advisors, it is rather like a scam project. One more thing is that no timeline set for ICO is also a big question.
Will never invest in such a untransparent project!

The cycle of monetization is not clearly stated well and I do not know the basis of hard caps and soft caps. This is a statistically pretty huge hard cap. The use of the collected list is not revealed.

First impressions matter. So if you dont allow people to view your whitepaper without asking for an email, you are playing with fire.
You pissed me off from the first moment I checked your whitepaper. This should always be freely accessible on the internet and NOT require an opt-in!
Now to the actual project: The idea of a simplified investment platform is a decent goal. Lowering the barrier for investors is definitely needed in the crypto markets.
Having said that, there are a few things that confuse and surprise me in this project:
- Combination of both Stellar and ERC-20 tokens. This couldve been handled better by using other blockchains such as EOS or bitshares.
- The whitepaper has very little information on how exactly it will work from a technical perspective. This rings all kinds of alarm bells for me.
These kinds of project balance between being a ponzi scheme and a decent investment project.
This rating might chance if more information is released about this project.

At first, I thought this would be a great project，but the truth is disappointing. I was invited to participate their airdrop program, and I got about 5k tokens of this project on my account. They emailed me several times to invite me to invest in their ICO, but I didn't participate. Today, I tried to log in my account on Superbloom, and I find out that I have lost access to my account. I tried to reset the password, and it didn't work out. I told the facts in their Telegram channel, and I got banned.
Based on what really happened to me related to this project, I suggest everyone to stay away from this project for now.
Update: I have got back the access to my account on Superbloom.

I've been through Superbloom's whitepaper. Strong team. Platform is for other ico projects to list. Intention is for their to have only reputable projects list. You then receive a portion of bounty that other projects give, in exchange for your due diligence as a user (who opts in). A lot of work required for passive users going forward. This solution is built on the bounty issuing craze.
I'm not 100% convinced on the business model that this product is based on. Bounty should ideally be issued for real, tangible resource contributions. Just sitting, receiving bounty for reading the terms/details of the project seems akin to anyone clicking Yes on the Terms and Conditions of various products we seek, without understanding it. Are users going to provide honest, meaningful feedback? Or is this a formal platform that emulates what many bounty-focused telegram groups do (just list projects with bounties, and have users mindlessly apply). The video paints a picture of the current state of the ecosystem, but does not shed light on the project proposed.

Crypto Boom: 15 New Hedge Funds Want In On 84,000% Returns
Chandler Guo, $1M BTC believer, talks to Superbloom about ICO hype and what’s next for crypto in China
Chandler Guo, $1M BTC believer, talks to Superbloom about ICO hype and what’s next for crypto in China
“Titans of Crypto” are those whose experience and expertise as well as their presence makes them leaders in the cryptosphere. This series is to highlight and understand a global perspective of crypto from those who are working every day to grow and innovate it.
For our inaugural installment of Titans of Crypto, the Superbloom founding team spoke with crypto pioneer Chandler Guo. China is an influential market in crypto, and Chandler connects Silicon Valley with Chinese knowledge from the ground. Chandler is one of the most prolific Bitcoin miners today and has more than 35 ICO’s under his belt. He was recently invited to speak at the World Economic Forum in Tianjin, is a regular expert guest on Bloomberg, and has long been an early advocate for $1M BTC.
We were lucky to sit down with Chandler and hear his predictions for the future of crypto in China, and why he believe now is the right time for global involvement in ICO’s. Watch the full interview below!
ICO State of the Union
“Right now, [ICO’s] are small, like an egg. In three months time, [they’re] going to be a dinosaur.” Chandler predicts a swift surge in ICO opportunities in the near future, with the ICO model revolutionizing centralized business.
“The middleman business model will be destroyed by ICOs. Not only in China and [the US], but everywhere. And there are tens of thousands of ICOs coming soon!”
What about public concerns around the ICO process? Superbloom co-founder Emmie Chang points out the pervasive worry of being scammed. Chandler explains, “[With an ICO, founders] have unlimited liability…there’s a community of accountability.” He further clarifies the benefits of a “community as a board”, with individual stakeholders keeping a close watch on their investment. “[As a founder], around the world you might have 10,000 coin holders watching you, holding you responsible.” He posits that every shareholder, regardless of number of coins, has equal opportunity to influence and keep founders accountable.
“That’s one of the most interesting things about crypto, we’re democratizing access. Now, VCs and people with a lot of money don’t necessarily have the most influence,” says Emmie. Fellow co-founder Kenzi Wang agrees. “Fiducial responsibility isn’t just for the board, it’s on all of your contributors.”
Why China’s ICO ban won’t stop the people
China banned ICO’s in September, but this doesn’t discourage Chandler one bit. He explains that Chinese citizens can still travel elsewhere to participate in investments. So how are Chinese investors getting involved? “When China banned ICO, [potential investors] weren’t sure where to go…that’s why we’re in the US. In San Francisco and Palo Alto.” Chandler is leading an initiative to keep Chinese investors informed on the best ICOs, and to organize conferences for them to meet with global founders.
What’s next for worldwide crypto investing?
According to Superbloom’s Emmie Chang, it’s bringing unlimited fiduciary power to the world. Chandler agrees that ICOs and token generation events are the way to make this vision a reality. When asked for his thoughts on the future of Superbloom, he became even more excited.
“Find the top 100 ICO’s and bring them onto your platform. Organize the best events, and get everyone to participate. In a few years, the Chinese government will reconsider. This is a great time for you, because there are lots of ICOs’ coming, and you’re bilingual founders! China has 1.3 billion people ready to participate in ICOs, they just need a way how.”
Chandler believes Superbloom’s platform will be the leader bridging the gap between global ICO communities. “In a few years, you’ll be superstars in China…Let’s get started!”

January 8, 2018, San Francisco, CA — Blockchain experts from around the world come together to discuss the future of cryptocurrency investing. The main focus of the summit, scheduled for January 11–13, 2018, is the confluence of eastern and western investment perspectives.
In many ways, Asia is ahead of the US market when it comes to blockchain technology. Cross-pollination between the two markets will facilitate knowledge transfer and increase idea creation. Not coincidentally, Macau has been selected to host International Blockchain Investment Summit; it is a hotbed for crypto activity and longtime cultural melting pot.
The event is organized by Superbloom, a San Francisco based crypto investment platform. Led by founders Emmie Chang and Kenzi Wang, the Superbloom team’s background and experience speaks for itself. Emmie studied engineering at Rice and has an MBA from UT Austin; Kenzi majored in math at Columbia and has an MBA from Wharton. Both previously founded venture-backed startups. Emmie Chang is an alum of Y Combinator (YC), America’s leading startup accelerator, which she credits with inspiring her to build Superbloom.
“YC’s Demo Day is the most efficient way for angel investors meet founders, perform due diligence, and deploy capital — we want to do this on a global scale for crypto token sales,” explains Emmie Chang, CEO. International Blockchain Investment Summit will similarly feature demos from 20+ oversea projects.
Presenters at the event include Heathem Huang, the CEO of Measurable Data Token (MDT), which just finished its oversubscribed sale after being incubated at Superbloom. “I’m here because I believe in the concept of the east and west combining knowledge, and I believe in Superbloom.”
Bancor’s Eyal Hertzog will also speak at the event. Bancor, the standard in Smart Token creation, gained fame with their record-breaking raise of $153M… in just a few hours.
The conference boasts 3,000+ cryptocurrency investors and venture capitalists. Dozens of blockchain developers are flying in to present. Excitement for the event is growing; it has already been covered by major media outlets in China including 8BC and Finwise are covering the event.
