Opportunities:Good ICO structure – there is no bonus/discount to ensure a level playing field.The messaging app industry is large. WhatsApp was acquired by Facebook for $19 billion back in 2014. Snap Inc. also has a market cap of $19 billion as of October 16, 2017. If Mercury Protocol is successful, the upside can be substantial.The company already has a functioning product, Dust, for a few years.
Concerns:According to the white paper, the biggest differentiation of Mercury Protocol over currency players (Messenger, WhatsApp, WeChat, etc.) is that it does not collect user information and monetize it. However, we are not sure how many users actually care about this, as long as they can use all the necessary functions for free and enjoy the user experience.Since the messaging industry is large, it is very competitive. The industry also enjoys enormous network effect, so most users would not want to try a new messaging app when none of their friends are using it.If Dust and Broadcast are not popular after integrating with Mercury Protocol, it would be difficult for third party developers to take the plunge and build applications on top of Mercury Protocol.The project will implement state channels and oracles – looks like it is a pretty complicated project and may face a lot of challenges during development.The use case is rather limited compared to Status, its closest competitor. Status’ use cases include running dApps, sending payments, storing cryptocurrency, which cannot be done by the Mercury Protocol.
Conclusion:Overall, we are neutral about this ICO both for its short-term potential and long-term potential. Our thoughts of the tokens for short term and long term are as follows:For short-term holding:Neutral. Even with Mark Cuban as an investor, the project is not very hyped. Neither the Telegram nor Slack channel are very active. However, the hard cap is relatively low so it has the potential to be filled quickly.Note: There is no gas or contribution limit for registered participants so you probably want to set a high gas in order to have a high chance for your transaction to go through.For long-term holding:Neutral. If the project is successful, it can tap into a multibillion industry. With a detailed development roadmap, the team looks like they know what they are doing.However, Dust is an old and unsuccessful app and we don’t believe integrating the Mercury Protocol is going to help turn it around. It is unclear how different Broadcast is from Dust.The project has many uphill battles to fight – the substantial network effect enjoyed by the dominant players, and building/reviving messaging apps and make them successful.If the protocol is proved to be good, other messaging apps will add the same functionalities and let people use it for free. We believe it is going to be difficult for the model to work.
Mercury Protocol aims to change the way humans communicate with one another in a digital environment. The Mercury Protocol uses the blockchain to provide better security, a trustless system, and a decentralized P2P messaging platform. It takes data ownership away from centralized corporations and puts it back in the hands of users. In the future, the Mercury Protocol aims to integrate with Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and other major tech products. In the near-term, however, the company will implement the Mercury Protocol onto its two apps, Dust and Broadcast, before the end of the year. Dust is a secure messaging app while Broadcast is a more secure version of Twitter.
