TOKEN LAUNCH

Token Launch platforms take away all the pain of designing tokens and developing smart contracts for ICOs. Thanks to the rise of UI/UX developers, you can create an ICO by simply choosing from drop-down menus. All of the token launch platforms reviewed below boast that you do not need to know to code to conduct your ICO.

This level of client-centricity is a welcome change in the ICO development phase which earlier stalled projects due to contract development issues. With time, that token launch platforms will begin to provide the level of customization expected by ICOs. The Blockchain space evolves rapidly and the route to success is paved with the number of your successful clients.

Review Metrics

I reviewed 5 token launch platforms and rated them according to the following metrics:

  1. UI/UX — 10 points
  2. Features — 10 points
  3. KYC integration — 10 points
  4. Pricing — 10 points

Without further ado, let’s see how the top token launch platforms fared.

#5 Polymath

Arguably the grand-daddy of token launch platforms, Polymath specializes in security tokens. While ICOs vs STOs is a debate for another article, I sit firmly on the fence, for now. The Polymath platform requires you to conduct all your transactions in POLY tokens (1 POLY = 0.0012 ETH at the time of writing). Their demand of 250 POLY to register the name on the Blockchain for 60 days was an instant downer. While I understand the costs involved, it still is a barrier that impedes reviewers such as myself.

After paying 250 POLY, I proceeded further and it was a breeze from here on. One feature that might be a roadblock down the line is their limitation to develop only ST20 tokens. The UI/UX is fairly simple and self-explanatory so kudos to that. The KYC integration is managed on the backend via specialized KYC providers which is a really great feature. The pricing structure is on the higher side which is mostly the norm for security token offerings.

Score:

UI/UX – 7

Features – 7

KYC Integration – 9

Pricing – 2

Total Score – 25

#4 Token Launcher

This platform is a hybrid model that enables quick customizations with the help of their development personnel. The only way to review them is by requesting a demo. The feature set is vast due to their unique feature of plug and play modules.

Token Launcher has a distinctive dashboard that presents information relevant to the person logged in. Therefore, the admin and the users are shown different screens. The platform has developed plug and play modules that add features such as support for different blockchains, token standards, and KYC automation.

The UI/UX has a distinct made-by-coders feel to it and needs a bit of a learning curve. The CRM integration is a nice addition and the pricing is the most attractive among all competitors.

Score:

UI/UX – 5

Features – 9

KYC Integration – 6

Pricing – 9

Total Score – 29

#3 Mycontract

Taking development to the extreme, XinFin has developed a hybrid blockchain – XDC to create dApps and ICOs for their clients. This frees them from the limitations of other token standards and unpredictable gas charges. This, however, comes with a rider – you must use their native tokens to develop your ICO. My Contract integrates with the Bancor protocol to accept over 100 cryptocurrencies. 

According to their demo (which you need to login to access), the platform allows you to create ERC20, ERC223, ERC721 compliant-tokens and allows for integration with several third-party modules. The pricing is structured attractively with complete transparency.

Score:

UI/UX – 5

Features – 9

KYC Integration – 7

Pricing – 7

Total Score – 28

#2 Token Get

With over 50 ICOs under its belt, Token Get has proved to be a commendable product time and again. It checks off all the requirements an ICO/STO might have with even SAFT  generation baked in. Their key strength is their marketing module which automates several activities such as airdrop management.

All these bells and whistles demand a premium therefore, it is priced on the higher side. That being said, the plethora of features make up for it.

Score:

UI/UX – 8

Features – 9

KYC Integration – 8

Pricing – 6

Total Score – 31

#1 Token Asia Platform

Easily the most user-friendly UI of all, Token Asia Platform is packed full of features. The team clearly spent time designing a platform that even the layperson could use so to speak. Kudos to the UI/UX team behind this.

It boasts multi-blockchain support, multi-currency acceptance, simplified token development, robust implementation tools, and user-friendly KYC module.

Priced reasonably, Token Asia Platform is an excellent choice for showing launching your token and showing your investors the process of doing so.

Score:

UI/UX – 10

Features – 9

KYC Integration – 8

Pricing – 7

Total Score – 34

Conclusion

Despite no clear regulatory pathways, token launcher platforms did a commendable job in finding the middle paths to simplify further the experience of conducting ICOs/STOs. Once the clouds clear on that front, we can expect to see further innovations and developments in this space with the arrival of new contenders that could unseat the current cream of the crop.

The new year was always considered to be a time of new beginnings, where people can reflect on the past and learn from their mistakes in order to be better in the future. The same is true for the world of crypto, and investors around the world are hoping for 2019 to be better, more profitable, and to have more success than 2018.

The hope for the future is even more important when we consider all the negative development in 2018. There were numerous high-profile hacking attacks, two market crashes, with a strong bear market in between. Not to mention that some of the biggest projects that may have brightened the year a bit ended up being delayed.

With that in mind, it is understandable why investors are looking forward to the new year and all the potential development that it may bring. In fact, there are several reasons why they should be excited about 2019.

1) Bearish market to loosen its grip

The first reason why 2019 can be a good year digital currencies is that it may finally break free of the bearish grip that has been felt ever since last January. Following the first market crash, the bears settled in, and the prices kept falling for an entire year. The market attempted to shake off the negativity on several occasions, with the biggest one being…

2018 has been a pretty bad year for digital coins, and after the initial market crash that occurred a year ago, everyone was expecting a bull run that will fix things. Obviously, it never arrived, and instead of that, all that crypto market experienced was an entire bearish year and another crash in mid-November.

Now, however, it is a brand new year, and attempts to shake off the bears’ grip can be seen even in these first two weeks. The market is still struggling and mostly losing value, rather than gaining, with most coins being in trouble once more. Still, a lot can happen in a year, and most investors remain optimistic regarding 2019. Here are some of the coins that are believed to have tremendous potential, and to be the hope of this year.

  1. Bitcoin (BTC)

Of course, Bitcoin comes first. This is the first cryptocurrency which is still dominating the market, with no other coin being even close to its market cap or price. BTC is the coin that has reached the most prominent heights, and it also lost the most in the previous year. However, there is still hope, as there are several projects and events scheduled for this year that might turn things around for the number one coin.

One thing that is expected is the approval of Bitcoin ETFs…

Crypto projects have gone through several crucial periods of development, and while it is fascinating to watch their progress to maturity, a lot of investors are becoming impatient. During the first few years, they were barely known, only talked about in specific groups, among those developers and investors who had the luck to find out about them in the early days.

The next several years, altcoins started appearing, and the voice of cryptocurrency slowly started to spread. Then, there was a period of hype, when crypto exploded, and the entire world finally learned about this new technology that promised to change the world. Naturally, the overhype led to a market crash and price correction that we experienced last year, but the impact was made, and the world is still talking about them on a daily basis.

However, now is the time for cryptos to deliver on their promise, grow up, and start showing results. There are high expectations for many projects, but for various reasons, they have yet to deliver, and many are hoping that 2019 will be the year when they finally do it. Let’s see which 3 crypto projects really need to show results, and soon.
