Tokenomy’s primary product is a crypto-to-crypto exchange. It will also offer a platform enabling the issue of tokens for crowdfunding, loyalty programs, donations or other needs as well as exchange and purchase.
The goal for the project is to become a global cryptocurrency exchange with hundreds of tokens, along with additional features that can assist anyone from small entrepreneurs and retailers to developers and large businesses, to issue their own tokens in order to conduct a fair and reliable crowdfunding event. This will enable individuals and businesses to obtain the required funds from trusted investors, as well as announce loyalty programs.
Tokenomy’s tokenization platform will provide the following services allowing anyone to issue their own tokens and hold token sales:
- Issuance of tokens with appropriate technical and legal support.
- Publication of information about an issued token.
- Possibility of exchanging tokens on the Tokenomy exchange.
- Audit and improvement of the token offering.
- Notification and distribution of information about projects.
- The creation of affiliate programs.

Attracted investments: N/A (the current amount of funding raised is given in the corresponding section).
The project is based on an international platform for token exchange and on a platform for crowdfunding.
Strengths of the project:
- The project is entering the dynamically developing South East Asian market.
- The project has experienced and well-known advisors.
- A shared login with Bitcoin.co.id exchange, the biggest cryptocurrency in Southeast Asia with over 1M users, means that Tokenomy will be available to 1m users from the start.
- Successful completion of token sale Phases 1 and 2; 90% of all issued tokens have been sold.
Weaknesses of the project:
- The team has not presented a strategy for entering the market and attracting users, which may lead to an insufficient number of clients.
- An MVP is not yet available.
According to Coinschedule, in 2016 the amount of funding raised on ITSs during the year was $96,389,917, with 46 crowdsales. In 2017, the amount increased by five times to $3,611,293,912, with the number of staged ITSs being 228.
According to an Infoholic Research LLP report, the cryptocurrency and blockchain technology market will grow by 35.2% in the next five years. Therefore, we can expect an increase in the number of ITSs.
[https://www.coinschedule.com/stats.php?year=2017], [https://techcrunch.com/2017/09/07/ITS-report-q2-coindesk/], [https://www.infoholicresearch.com/report/cryptocurrency-and-block-chain-market-trends-2016-2022/]
According to an analysis by the project team, the Asia-Pacific region accounts for 70% of the total global growth in internet use, 62% of users of social media and 64% of the increase in the number of users of mobile social media.
The white paper also presents an analysis of the Asia-Pacific region in terms of population and economy.
Comments: The market as analyzed by the team is not consistent with their presented business model.
As for our analysis, we conclude that the ITS market is growing quickly, which gives a chance for the project to occupy a market niche.
In the course of our study we identified the following competitors:
Starbase — A platform for the issue, financing and sale of tokens.
Сoinstarter — A platform providing support for the launch of ITS.
Alfa Token — A platform for creating proprietary tokens and smart contracts.
Summary: The main difference of Tokenomy from its competitors is that it offers a wider range of services, including exchange-based trading. In addition, Tokenomy will have a login shared with Bitcoin.co.id.
The platform is built on the basis of blockchain technology.
The platform will function as follows:
To issue tokens and receive funding, it will be necessary to:
- Apply for token issue.
- The Tokenomy commission conducts a review and then accepts or rejects an application.
- When accepting an application, the team provides technical support for the token issuance.
- Creation of a company profile, token advertising, etc.
- Placement of the tokens on an exchange.
A mobile application will also be created for the convenience of users.
Comments: The project team is using well-known technologies that have already proven themselves, which we believe will assist the spread of the project.
In the future, as technology and data are being developed, it is planned to implement the following:
2nd Quarter 2018:
- Launch of the exchange platform.
- Tokenomy will start creating tokens.
- The primary market for these tokens will become available during this quarter.
3rd Quarter 2018:
- The project will start accepting orders for the issue of tokens.
Comments: The team has presented a plan for the step-by-step development of the platform, but there is no release date for the mobile application, and no target platforms are specified.
The open repository for the project has been created, but there are no open modules in it as yet.
Comments: The project possesses good technical development and well-known technological solutions that will contribute to the distribution of the project. However, the project has not yet uploaded its smart contract to the open repository (GitHub).
We checked the Tokenomy site and its documentation for sufficiency and consistency towards facilitating investment decisions. The project is described in detail in the white paper which is available in English. The main emphasis is placed on the platform’s services and an analysis of the development of the Asian region.
The website also provides information on the project, ITS, platform function, consultants and the team. The site is available in English, Chinese, Indonesian and Japanese. A feature of the site is a detailed description of platform services.
Summary: The documentation provides insight into the project. Platform features are described in detail therein.
