Is there a reason why the CEO's LinkedIn profile is not listed on ICObench?
Does this link belong to the CEO?
Something is very strange... CEO has just 3 connections?
Willing to revise rating if the team responds.
All the best!

1. CEO Linkedin missing. Hard to check reliability.
2. White paper no structure.
3. Too many competitor, recommend explain "why Viaz?" in the project summary.
4. No detail financial plan at white paper, Where can I find "why 8M softcap?"
5. Tezos market cap compare to ETH only 2% of ETH size. And it's a centralized organization. How can Viaz promise decentralized P2P on a the centralized business service?

There are many projects to realize the platform for raising funds, but I felt that their project was outstanding among them.
I think that it can be expected project.

4 team members, 4 developers and 2 advisors and they aim to provide a decentralized funding platform. No MVP available yet. I seriously don't want to discourage them, but for such an ambitious project, in such uncertain times, you do need numbers. Or outsource them, but in that case, you need to provide this info somewhere.
Many other ICOs are working on a similar products and it is hard for me to understand what makes you different from existing ICOs.
The Whitepaper itself is little, with just 20 pages, big text and graphics. However, the project is still in its initial stage and it might improve in the future.
But as an advice for you is...recruit more qualified team members on board.

*** Rating updated - reached out to me with regard to MVP. I haven't tested it.
DYOR, I am just thinking out aloud basis the information available at the time of writing this.
Smart-contract based lending platform, there are a few put there such platforms, but this one's does mention "crypto-collateral", interesting to see how this will play out.
How will lending exactly work and what kind of ROI for investors is something that needs to be addressed in greater detail.
Tezos is centralized if I'm not mistaken. And Viaz will offer decentralized P2P on a centralized business service?
Team, seems a tad small set up, KYC passed OK.
Considering the team size, present advisors, scope of this project, perhaps more members / known advisors are needed?
All the very best.

Many of the ICOs are working on this idea, I didn''t see any big expert for this ICO.
They have passed the KYC, it simply mean that they are real people.
But I think they need some good expert for the marketing because market is full of this type of company.

White paper - The white paper problem and solution statement is very clear. The idea of having a smart-contract based lending platform isn’t new but the crypto-collateral is quite interesting. The white paper has failed to mention the specifics about lending. The white paper has almost enough to educate investors about their project. A bit more effort is needed to show investors the value of investing in this project in terms of expected ROI generation with market penetration.
Team - The team composition and advisory is small but capable. Inspite of that they seriously need to add team members for making it diverse in terms of PR, marketing, etc capabilities.
Tokenomics - They have not mentioned the token generation amount and funds deployment as of yet.
Business Model - The business model is clear - Use tokens as collateral to take loans and earn by keeping tokens as collateral. But the rate of 1% p.a as service fee is quite low to be honest and needs a detailed analysis if this amount is sufficient for the company to operate on. The also lack a clear roadmap about reaching various markets and increasing user base.
MVP/ DApp/ Working Product - They claim to come up with a test net before token emission. No MVP as of yet.
Great idea but small team composition and lack of specifics makes me wary.

Idea is not creative, and whitepaper is not describing as per my requirements, it should be more explaining.
CEO can’t be reached as no information of social media provided and advisors team consist only two members.
Team needs to do more work on profiles, vision and products

White paper is not more managed, team is having only 2 advisors

It's a great ICO. It has introduced innovative products solutions with the use of Blockchain Technology.............overall very good ICO to invest.

I seem to be the first expert giving a rating to this project. Benchy gave a 4.3 and after taking a closer look, I understand why.
Their team passed the KYC, they have is a page on Bitcoin Wiki, they have a working MVP.
They will need more advisors.
The project is not very original but innovative on the Tezos platform.
Good luck Team

Team - Based on the review of the team credentials in the whitepaper and social media it appears that they do not have any significant experience in running a lending business.
Vision - The idea of the project is not new and there are already many projects who are doing similar things. Use of blockhian technology is not the core requirement for what the project aims to do, as most of the things can be done effeciently done off-chain. Infact those thing would be cumbersome if done on blockchain due to inherent scalablity issues with existing blockchains protocols.
Product - It appears that the project is currrenlty at ideation stage. Though it is mentioned in the whitepaper that the development is in progress, the project has not been able to provide any evidence to support its claim.
Overall not a very compelling project which should warrant any significant attention untill they can deliver something tangible.
