Scam or not: World Peace Coin – are they serious?


Review by the team
What is World Peace Coin: a cryptocurrency that creates credit opportunities for the unbanked people.
Project: World Peace Coin is aimed to eradicate poverty among people in developing countries. They are going to make contributions to create financial opportunities for the poor, providing loans to the unbanked population. WPC is based on the Bitcoin blockchain, offering the following instruments:
— TSUMUGI — AI system that calculates a credit rating for the borrowers.
— Proof of Lending (PoL) — an original way of mining, which means that mining is possible only for those who have WPC. The idea is that WPC owners in developed countries could finance WPC users from developing countries.

Country: Japan.


Analog: Humaniq, MicroMoney

How they differ from the competitors: the tools they provide, namely, PoL mining and TSUMUGI AI system.
Date of ICO: pre-ICO: ongoing, ICO: March 25 – April 25, 2018.

Token price: pre-ICO – 1 WPC = $0,22, ICO – 1 WPC = $0,27.

What will happen to tokens: in total, they will issue 2,5 billion tokens without the additional emission. Estimated mining period is ten years. WPC will be listed on cryptocurrency exchanges from June 2018.

Token allocation: 250 million will be put on sale and 250 million of WPC will be donated to developing countries.

Why scam
Concept: ★★☆☆☆
The lending market in developing countries is growing rapidly, creating new opportunities for businesses in this field. The obvious drawback is that this market is risky and has a high rate of loan defaults. World Peace Coin is not the first project that wants to develop financial instruments for the unbanked. So WPC can face rather stiff competition. Long-term milestones presented in the roadmap are not justified by any details about the way they are going to achieve their goals. Currently, they only have the idea but not the working concept. There are many misprints on the site (English version).

Token: ★★★☆☆
The mechanism of functioning for WPC is clear because it is similar to BTC. But there is no information about token distribution after an ICO.

Crew: ★★☆☆☆
Information about skills and work experience is not enough to get a clear idea about the crew. Most of the team members do not claim to have experience in Blockchain. There is no detailed information on the project's advisors, just names and photos.

Communication: ★☆☆☆☆
They have too few readers and just several posts in social networks.
