If only BSV didn't have Craig Wright and his crew at CoinGeek in its ranks then I would instantly bump it up more. I really don't like everything about Craig and his approach to this space with lawsuits, patents, crazy claims, emotional court outbursts and more. But enough about Craig -- I think BSV folks make great points from an economic perspective and I also think that Satoshi and what he wrote in the whitepaper are still relevant to this day. I also really like how they are building apps with microtransactions on the BSV blockchain. Twetch is one of my favorite ones and its token economy is really interesting, putting new incentives around the Twitter system pretty much. Even though I like this dapp and probably others that ppl are building on BSV, I definitely don't think all the worlds apps and data needs to be on the blockchain, that just seems a bit ridiculous lol.

Used to like this project a lot more and used to be a big fan of Charlie Lee. Now I don't hate him for "dumping on us" as much as other ppl do, but it was bad for PR of course. I just don't have much faith in Litecoin anymore after the slow moving development cycles, the lack of innovation, and the constant bad news/"FUD" pouring out about lack of interest and lack of effort improving this coin. After all, it is just a clone of Bitcoin and is "silver to Bitcoin's gold" lol. Charlie Lee has vowed to turn things around and focus more on improving this coin on the technical side but he has a mountain ahead of him to climb in order to get this project back to its heydays like the old days when it would precede BTC in terms of price action because ppl were excited about it.

Hate this project for how they conducted their ICO in 2017. They capitalized on a tweet by Vitalik Buterin (about their team/project) and got a lot of newbies to buy into their ICO. They took a long time to send us our tokens and made no effort to make it tradable on any public exchanges. By the time we could trade it, the value dropped 90% already (and this was before the bear market). Now they have their main cloud services business which seems like it's booming, but the token has taken a backseat. This team owes their tokenholders an explanation and a refund.

Pure scam, promises that their coins will be worth a certain amount of $ as time goes on. Team is nowhere to be found. This is eerily reminiscent of Bitconnect and other related ponzi schemes. Just google "Upstake scam" and you'll find multiple users saying that they deposited BTC and wasn't able to withdraw at all. That's because their internal exchange is closed and there's no transparency. They can say their token is worth whatever price but eventually they won't be able to sustain it with new sign ups and the whole thing will come crashing down just like BCC did. TLDR; Steer clear.....

Come on guys, why do you think that coming here to shill a project together and only writing ~3 sentences each is a good idea? That just makes your project look terrible. In fact, now I wouldn't touch your project with a 10 foot pole because of your little brigade. Some other quick notes: 1) Waves coin, can make this even easier than ERC20 token, so barely any effort put into it. 2) It's for tobacco articles... what does that even mean and why the heck do they need a token for it?? 3) Their website looks like a 10 year old designed it. 4) At least their social media presence exists and has been active, I can give them a little credit. 5) Still think the founders (whoever they are...no presence at all) are using this as a low effort way to scam newbies. 6) Their white-paper is an absolute joke. Talks about blockchain and crypto in general and looks like they paid someone on Fiverr $5 to make it. TLDR: Stay away, far far away. I wouldn't even have looked into this project if it wasn't for the shills. You have yourselves to thank for this negative review.

OmiseGo (OMG) was one of the most promising projects in the crypto world in 2017/2018. They aimed to fix all the problems with p2p digital asset transactions. They also have a top notch team with Vitalik Buterin being a notable adviser for them. OmiseGo is often tied to Plasma - a layer 2 scaling solution for the Ethereum ecosystem. So far, they've launched a few iterations of Plasma MVP and MoreVP to the public. They've been working hard on this aspect of their platform for a couple years now. Please note that their Plasma implementation is NOT a general purpose second-layer plasma. Instead, it is specifically targeted Plasma implementation towards DEXs and payments. Also, some criticisms of OmiseGo (and to be fair this could be applied to most ICOs in the crypto world, but here we go anyways): 1) They are bad at scoping and oftentimes lead their community on as to when they will be able to complete a part of their roadmap. They've missed multiple dates in the past and have kept their community hanging. 2) Their goals have shifted many times (at least from a marketing perspective). And they've also had some "Waltonchain"-like snafus when it comes to PR and marketing. Examples include: misleading pictures @ Google, core team members leaving, partnering with questionable projects like Electrify, April Fools fork, and much more. 3) Also through the long time they've taken to Go To Market, many competitors have sprouted up in the fintech and crypto space. They are tackling a very general problem - making online payments more accessible, so the longer they take, the more competitors are going to come and potentially overtake them. In fact, if you look at the other solutions out there that target the same payments pain points as OMG, they are active and working just as well already. ----- To be fair though, the team is still working and hasn't given up on this project. Their public alpha testnet was launched and concluded. And the team continues to be very public, attending Devcon 5 and showing the world what they're working on. So for this I at least have to commend them for not just giving up and exiting with all of their ICO proceeds.
