Lightstreams关键差异是它在用户之间共享内容时解决了区块链数据存储的问题。数据存储大小，速度和隐私是任何DApp可行的关键因素。当前的区块链只能存储有限数量的数据，并且此服务需要收取高额费用。 Lightstreams允许无上限的数据存储，没有相关的区块链交易费用。当前的区块链也具有较慢的事务速度，这使得DApp的用户体验与传统应用程序相比似乎没有响应。 Lightstreams分别利用快速共识机制和点对点文件共享来解决事务速度和数据传输问题。最后，目前的区块链几乎没有隐私。 Lightstreams通过设计屡获殊荣的文件共享协议调用Permissioned Blocks来解决这个问题，这些块可以为共享内容带来隐私和机密。
第一个应用程序在Lightstreams上启动：https：//www.fanbase.live 速度 - 以太坊速度慢，EOS终结需要6秒< br /> Lightstreams的交易吞吐量比EOS快4倍，并支持在1.5秒内完成的应用程序状态更改。 隐私 - 区块链网络缺乏良好的分散式私有存储层 Lightstreams＆rsquo; Smart Vault是一种兼容的分散式存储解决方案。数据是在需要知道的基础上访问的，可以永久擦除。控制始终掌握在数据所有者手中，这意味着它默认符合GDPR和CCPA标准。 没有用户费用 - 以太网和EOS对用户来说是昂贵的。没有先试后买光源Lightstreams允许应用程序创建者承担运行应用程序而不是用户的成本，从而实现freem ium使用模式（在购买之前尝试）。 激进的治理受自由派激进主义，Lightstreams＆rsquo的启发;治理模式通过首先为网络人员提供服务来支持可持续的分散化。最重要的。

Market:Lightstreams is one of the platforms compatible with Ethereum and built based on PoA algorithm, which combine a high level of speed and privacy (these include POA Network, Cosmos Network and others). Except for mentioned decisions, such problems as increase in scalability, capacity and personal data protection in networks are solved at the Ethereum level (05/04/2018 V. Buterin claimed that the network can potentially reach 1M TPS with the use of Sharding и Plasma decisions).The team also considers EOS, IOTA, Filecoin their competitors. EOS, IOTA have a high capacity, but their privacy level is lower. In Filecoin both capacity and privacy is a level lower than Lightstreams’.In general, high-speed networks and decentralized storages by the results of ICO demonstrate high indicators of fundraising and efficient return on investment:POA Network – in the course of ICO $12,6M was raised, capitalization - $69,1M, ROI USD - 4,66xIOTA - raised - 1,337 BTC., capitalization - $4,5 billion, ROI USD - >160xFilecoin - raised - $257M, capitalization – not available, ROI USD - 1,8x
Social activity:The level of marketing activity to the project is low. Channels in Telegram counts about 13500 followers, Twitter - 993, Facebook - 103. Since October 2017 the project blog publishes 1-2 articles per month, which lack releases on the product development and project development previews. The blog last articles inform on the project achievements in social networks, founders’ promises to update Roadmap and it seems that the team plays for time and waits for the end of ICO.In January, 2018, $300K was raised at the seed stage. The period of Private sale for institutional investor and its results are not yet known.
Lightstreams can also become successful due to additional valuable function of the platform of the shared use of digital author’s content (music, video, books, etc.). But it’s yet unknown whether society will accept this idea. Today the market of cryptocurrencies actively searches for the optimal algorithm of consensus, blockchains of new generation appear every week, and delay, which is observed in the Lightstreams product development, can be critical for the project.
Overall, we have an undetermined view about the flipping potential of the ICO and are neutral about its long-term potential. Our thoughts on buying the tokens for flipping and investing for the long term are as follows:For flippingDepends. The project has a relatively low hard cap for a blockchain protocol project and has generated high market awareness. However, the team is undecided as to whether they will issue a placeholder ERC-20 token which can be exchanged for mainnet tokens or distribute tokens directly once mainnet is launched (currently scheduled in early Q4 2018).If the team chooses the first option (issuing a placeholder token), then the turnaround time would be much quicker. We would be positive about the flipping potential in this case.If they go for the latter option (distributing mainnet tokens directly when the network launches), then there would be a few month lag between the date of contribution and the date of receiving mainnet tokens. In addition, this does not take into account the time it takes for the mainnet PHT tokens to be integrated and listed on exchanges. We have a neutral view for flipping if this is the option that the team chooses.For long-term holdingNeutral. The idea of the project was conceived and developed more than one year ago during last year’s Consensus Hackathon. However, the team suspended the development and waited until one year later to conduct an ICO to continue the project. This does not speak well to the team’s enthusiasm for the project and for this reason, we are neutral about the chance that the project will be a success.
13-May. Sergey: There is not much interest in this project. Link30-May. Alexey: I don`t like it.Andrey: They will fork Ethereum and make blockchain for content distribution.Bruce: Main net launch will be in the Q3 and exchanges, as far as I understand, after the swap. I think it is a good project, there is no reason for it to show negative ROI after ICO.
