About[edit]

Achievements

  • Launched in 2016
  • 35 Team members
  • 200,000 app users
  • 1,200,000€ revenues 2017
  • Integrated Buyback model (with 30% of the revenue)
  • Encouraging token scarcity model

Philosophy
Friendz decentralizes the online marketing industry, elevating the final user to a central position, where he can monetize its contribution to the digital advertising process leveraging blockchain technology.
Unlike famous influencers, users generally do not get rewarded through the advertising process, even if they contribute with sharing brands’ posts on social networks and interacting with companies official pages.
Friendz let users monetize their actions online in a decentralised and democratic way, depending on their skills and influence.

The idea
Friendz was born at the end of 2015 with the idea of finding a solution to a problem that companies faces in doing digital advertising, that is reaching and engaging their target audience in the communication and sharing of the companies values and message. Friendz infrastructure can control and manage a huge number of contents published, reducing costs for companies and providing strong efficiency.

Innovation
Friendz introduced a revolutionary marketing concept, leveraging the peer-to-peer communication on social networks and the power of word of mouth. Friendz users are not influencers with a big audience, but normal people that use social networks everyday. The size of the audience reached is the same, but consists of the close connections of thousands of micro influencers. In this way, the advertising message shared on their profile reaches their friends in a genuine and natural way and is much more effective.

Friendz benefits greatly from already having a working platform with a high user pool. In addition, it has a very strong team and the idea of peer-to-peer marketing is gaining traction worldwide. It has a fairly active social media presence in place and its ICO metrics are fair and balanced. It also faces little competition given its already enormous user base. This is a superb project.

Mature product and a plan in place. I evaluate this as a great ICO. The user-base is potentially very large, as almost the entire world uses social media in some form. However, the competition will become intense as blockchain technology adoption continues, given the size of the target audience.
Current competitors are Steemit, Sphere, Nexus, and Social X.

Pros:
+ Working product with 200k+ users and €1.2M revenue; impressive client portfolio (e.g. Nestle, UBER, PayPal)
+ Great experienced team and advisors
+ Overall feel is playful, stylish, and appealing to the social media communities; clear whitepaper and company targets

Cons:
- Lots of potential and the team has already proved they can deliver. This is not really a disadvantage, but it will be interesting to see how will raising an ICO impact further development and progression, as well as company's ability to cope with/manage new challenges and responsibilities
- Other competitors
- Failed ICO KYC report

Product is really good and it is great that it already had existing users. But the price of the cryptocurrency lost a lot of value and the team were not able to do anything about it. That makes me think the team was not that strong after all, and the vision lacks.
