Investment attracted: N/A
However, the lead team (Volodymyr Panchenko, Alexander Kokhanovskyy, Andriy Khavryuchenko), are currently participating in the development of another ICO project, Dmarket (https://dmarket.io/), which is a risk for Dreamteam’s development, since the teams attention will be divided between two ICOs.
The Dreamteam project has specialists from the e-sports industry.
Pros of the project:
- Availability of a working platform prototype.
- The project has well-known founders.
- There is user interaction on the platform.
- Structured documentation and roadmap.
Cons of the project:
- The project team is participating in the launch of another ICO project, which could affect the quality of the launch of Dreamteam.
- There are no advisors or partners from the blockchain industry.
Market and industry
- Technavio analysts predict that the global gaming market will grow by more than 6% (CAGR) between 2016 and 2020. According to Newzoo games, market volume was $99.6 billion in 2016, and the number of players is about 2 billion.
- The e-sports market volume, according to Statista is $696 million in 2017. It is expected that the cumulative annual growth will be 32% by 2020. The size of the audience is 385 million people.
According to the white paper:
- The current gaming industry is already worth $100 billion thanks to 2.3 billion players worldwide. By 2020, the value of the gaming industry will be $129 billion, and the number of players will grow by 5% - 2.7 billion.
- The most popular team games are Counter-Strike, League of Legends, Dota2 and Overwatch. There are more than 250 million players, but only 1 million teams.
- The e-sports market volume is now $0.7 billion; an increase of 33% is expecte d. Projected increase in users is 17%, i.e. 390 million by 2020.
Comments: The company has a detailed analysis of the market and the target audience. All data given in the white paper are confirmed by reports from other companies.
The following competitors are mentioned in the white paper:
Teamfind (https://teamfind.com/) - a platform for finding a team, player or coach.
Seekteam (https://www.seek-team.com/en/) - a platform for finding a team, player or coach.
Gleetz (https://gleetz.gg/en/) – a social network for finding a team or player.
Guilded (https://www.guilded.gg/) - a platform that provides opportunities to find a player, team, organize training games, participate in tournaments and provide ratings.
In addition, we found the following company:
Eloplay (https://ico.eloplay.com/en.html) - a platform based on blockchain, which enables finding teams and players, participating in tournaments (to the question of further development, Eloplay team responded that it is planning to introduce such services as a search manager, coach and transfers.)
Summary: Unlike its competitors who do not use the blockchain system, DreamTeam has great functionality. Eloplay is more focused on
tournaments, but in the future they are also planning to introduce similar functions to Dreamteam’s.
Engineering features of the platform
The DreamTeam platform uses blockchain and smart-contracts to ensure the security of financial transactions and the regulation of the financial ecosystem. Dreamteam uses Vue. JS and Laravel for seamless interface with Front-End, Phalcon Framework for API and a powerful database, PostgreSQL, for data storage. As for middleware, Dreamteam runs cloud technologies using PHP 7.1 and CentOS.
Flow chart of the platform:
Comments: The current project has a prototype platform. An interesting point is the facility to enter a futures contract, in order to fix payments to fiat.
However, registration functions without email confirmation or captcha, and there is no pre-moderation of messages and ratings. This can lead to the registration of random users or driving up the number of clients.
In future, with the development of technology and data facilities, it is planned to implement the following:
- Q4 2017 - support for CS Go, League of Legends; Dreamteam 1.2 update with additional functions: training games, rating tables.
- Q1 2018 - support for Battlegrounds, Quake, Dota 2; Dreamteam 1.3 upgrade with additional features: creation of premium accounts, introduction of smart-contracts (demo version).
- Q2 2018 - support for HearthStone, Overwatch; Dreamteam 2.0 upgrade with additional functions: coaches, managers, team analysis tools, team management and training processes, premium accounts, introduction of smart-contracts and one-time services for coins (full version).
- Q3 2018 - support for World of Tanks, Smite and Heroes of the Storm;
- Q4 2018 - support for Minecraft, World of Warcraft; Dreamteam 3.0 update with additional features including personal trainers, scouts, agencies, psychologists, analysis of large data and machine learning, mobile application, futures, the ability to check ratings and additional services for coins.
- 2019 - integration of DreamTeam tokens to all e-sports games and ecosystems.
Comments: The company has a step-by- step strategy to expand the platform. There is also a provision to add new games and functions, as well as a commercial aspect for the introduction of paid services.
The following active blocks are represented in the open repository:
DreamTeam has 1 open repository:
Comments: Unfortunately, there is no activity in the project repository.
We analyzed the Dreamteam website and documentation for sufficiency and non- propriety for making an investment decision.
The website also provides information about the project, token distribution, the conduct of the public ICO and the team. An additional advantage of the website is the availability of registration for token purchase.
Summary: The documentation gives an idea of the project. The best way to contact the team is via Telegram.

Token sale is implemented in several stages:
Comments: Tokens can be used as payment for platform services, for trade on exchanges, as well as payment for third-party services or exchange for tokens of other platforms;
To sell DreamTeam tokens, the Ethereum ERC20 standard is used. In 2018, all tokens will be exchanged at a rate of 1:1 and brought to a more convenient platform such as Eos, Tezos, Waves or Dreamteam’s own platform.
The release of tokens will occur 30 days after the end of the sale. Tokens will be listed on user wallets. The registration date of the DreamTeam token on exchanges will be announced later.

As soon as the second phase of the token sale is over, there will be no more tokens issued.

Token and capital distribution
Tokens and capital are distributed according to the following scheme:
Summary: Tokens are sold as a currency and do not affect the distribution of shares in the company. The incentive system is implemented in such a way so it is more profitable to buy tokens earlier.

- Q4 2017 - sponsorship of the first major tournament.
- Q1 2018 - first contract with a pro-team.
- Q4 2018 - signing contracts with 5 or more teams.
