We want DApps to develop fast – independently from the blockchain platform. Any DApp on any blockchain platform with a smart-contract can use our Casper API to store data and CDN.
Casper API is a decentralized data storage system for DApps (decentralized applications) on any blockchain with smart-contracts. Casper API is a cross-chain solution allows creating new DApps never before possible. For example: decentralized blogging platforms (like Medium), marketplace or social media. Casper API raises the level of the blockchain ecosystem, thereby developing the blockchain market. The technologies by which the Casper API complements any blockchain with smart-contracts are decentralized p2p storage and CDN.
Imagine our nearest future, when information will not only be generated by you, but billions of IT devices: drones, self-driving cars, robots, AR/VR. All of them require an immense storage volume for information, which will cause significant demand for the service in question from both classic-style applications and DApp.
Casper API can help solve the issue of high data storage prices. After switching to a decentralized storage you can save up to 66% compared to the cloud storage giants of today. This is made possible with the help of providers putting up their hard drive capacity, both private persons and data centers can put up as little as 25.6 GB for rent and enjoy monthly rewards in CST – the system's tokens. It will help increase the reliability and security of the data stored due to decentralization. You will never lose your data and will always have access to it. By uploading your data you can be sure that you alone is the only person with the access.
Located all around the world, providers ensure the operation and security of the entire network, and the smart-contract automatically runs hourly check-ups when copies are created. Thus upon finding a disconnected provider, the system immediately copies all the data stored on his HDD, keeping the number of proper copies.
Cloud storage market looks like the most perspective out there at the moment, projected to reach $72 billion by 2020. This makes the solution put forth by Casper API all the more attractive.
Interesting project and useful idea.
Solid team. Like the idea - anything to accelerate the token revolution is good. We need more tools. Whitepaper does well to examine competitors and does not claim to be the 'first' at anything (thankfully). They also do well to analyse the various scenarios of their ICO which few other ICOs do. This leaves me feeling comfortable with the project because they are thinking deeply about things. Hard cap of 30 million is ambitious and maybe a little high. As are the numbers for ICO - marketing and community building takes sweat from the founders because money can't buy that kind of knowledge. Get ready to moderate Telegram yourselves and be prepared to live on a plane and attend every event you can - because that's how you will succeed. Not just in raising money but also in building community and awareness.
Strong team and advisory board ....... quite interesting vision.... also have mvp ...
Project idea is interesting and has a purpose. Main team is knowledgeable and Advisors seem to be strong and have a global presence.
Security of data is of utmost importance and need for virtually every industry. With the right approach and strategy Casper can be valuable.
Experienced and talented team, great idea, but the market is too niche for this. Hard cap of 30 mil is a little ambitious to be honest. Will have to wait and see how well the team is able to execute. All the best!
Looking forward to this project, I can see big potential in this, really different to most things on the market which could be seen as competition.
Strong team, working prototype and MVP.
Good luck it's this one, would love to get involved if possible.
This is the state every product should be in before attempting an ICO. MVP done, solid information in whitepaper, team experienced and professional...
The team is too localised that can hinder business development. Also the competition is too high and the project will have to struggle to win competing both with major players and blockchain projects
Experienced team and promising product. A very good project for investment
Very good idea. Good luck!
Need more strong advisors
The team complained about my rating to the ico administration icobench.
I was asked to publicly apologize for what they said I was not being correct.
But I do not change my mind.
As before, I think that the team is the weakest. The idea and the current implementation is terrible.
I apologize for breaking the rules icobench.
Well rounded team and i personally like the idea.
All the best guys.
Extremely exciting niche to be in and looks solid.
In my opinion, I think this project makes sense and the below caught my eye in the white paper.
"Cloud System Infrastructure Services (IaaS) is the fastest growing cloud technologies market segment with the average annual growth rate of 30%. By 2020 the IaaS segment will reach 71.6 billion dollars. One of the main growth factors for the market is the trend to optimize expenses and increase utilization of IT cloud solutions by small-to- medium businesses."

Although I find this project interesting, there are some things that keep me concerned. For starters, I think Casper cannot be characterized as a direct competitor for Global cloud services because of its complexity and its limitations. The team though looks solid and experienced. I tried to run the MVP but I had some difficulties running it. The things that I see as to be of most importance are the client experience and the scalability of this project.
Solid team with a great idea.
Good thing to know that you have already raise over $1mln so it is not hard to reach its softcap.
Good luck with your project!
Really interesting idea. This concept will be beneficial for millions of blockchain DApp that will be built over the next few years! The whitepaper is very detailed and provides extensive idea about the process. Very strong technology.
This is a good product, however it is a neiche market.
The ROI to an average investor does not seem to be as viable as the token appears to be a utility in terms of DApp development.
While i believe this to be strong tech, I do not believe it to be a good investment.
In my day Casper was a friendly cartoon ghost. Now he’s all grown up.
Having fast, efficient tools to examine Big Data is important for companies that need to pivot quickly. Data storage and the ability to use it to access intelligence are paramount. Not to mention the excellent vision, the team is solid too.
The concept is very interesting and needed although there are other solutions being developed already for over a year in this space. The storage market will continue to grow and various providers will emerge and disrupt the industry. I didn't notice as part of the team blockchain experts, which is a needed area to be able to integrate the platform with various blockchians. The CTO linkedin profile points to another person who is listed there as advisor to the project.
Otherwise project looks strong.
Great project. The team also looks solid.
It's a really nice idea, innovative, definetely useful and will get transaction if executed properly.
The community looks strong too.
A easy to use dApp tools is really a business needs from blockchain ecosystem, but b2b service is hard to fast expend and not yet become a mass market.
Advisor team is really strong, see if any business model improvement from their coach.
Good team with some great advisers. They do have an MVP.
I do think that this idea is not unique, even though they claim that it will be (not yet) different than their competitors. The estimated date of launch is next year, which gives their competitors plenty of time to update their product.
I wish the team best of luck, they have the ability on paper to achieve the goals they set out.
Very simple and reasonable business model.
Moreover, I also like the UI that valued investors and users.
The rationale for the white paper is also strongly established.
I hope this business will succeed.
The screen of DEMO is simple and very user-friendly.
I am a little worried that the time required for uploading is a bit longer.
But this will also be improved.
I perfectly understand that perfect translation of all languages is a difficult task, but there are many unclear points.
The rate of 25.6 GB for 1 CST. But, if the price rises as the popularity of CST rises, will it be a burden to users?
Also, taking into consideration that this is ICO, I am relieved that there are members who have made ICO successful for team members.
Strong experience team and advisory board. Very interesting project and vision also good and most useful idea. WP also good.
Best of luck project team member.
Potentially high adoption rate for developers to build Dapps and thereby gaining adoption. Pretty decent team and product is decent. Advisor team is also not too shabby and they have quite a few technology people on the team.
As a developer, I understand the capabilities of this project.
The potential is enormous! If the team will be able to do its work Casper will help much the spread of Dapps (because it will create much new possibilities for developers).
They have a good whitepaper and roadmap. There is also an MVP.
This is great. Storage is a big issue for true adoption of Dapps on the blockchain, and this has the potential to be a great solution.
Leadership lacks experience in this development field though which could be a potential flag.
Team is relatively strong - I like the idea. The market is relatively niche but will grow over time if they can form strong partnerships with other blockchain companies. Whitepaper does well to examine competitors and does not claim to be the 'first' at anything like most projects I come across. If they can form partnerships with funds their hard cap of $30m should be possible.
Well-written WP gives details of the ICO and the product. Hardcap might be too high considering the crowded market for similar products and their ICOs. The discussion of similar ICOs alongside is a nice touch.
I feel you'd need a larger, more diverse team, just so as to be able to tackle larger chunks of the market. But the experience and the knowledge does seem to be there.
I like the vision. I personally would love to see more cross-chain solutions in the market. It'll get more competitive, it's going to be tough, but it's definitely there.
The product... I think being a utility is working adversely here. I also am a little taken aback by a 100% increase in token price from pre-ICO to ICO. Everything else with the token structures seem to be solid. The caps are definitely fair I'd say for something that has such potential. But, again, utility in a niche, developer-centric market, it's going to need some top-tier adoption to really get off the ground. Doable in my opinion.

How many providers do you have currently?
Team as well as advisors look pretty qualified. Co-founder has relevant experience but don't see much for most of the others.
Incredible amount of competition in this space, for that I think the vision needs to be stronger. While technically strong I think this will still be a risky investment considering the aforementioned.
The competitors have already been around quite awhile and demonstrated far better tech. Team doesnt seem to have the relevant experience in IPFS, file sharing or crypto to be credible enough to deliver this and especially to outperform the 4 other majors that have already been in the market for quite awhile...
