    INS is in the right market but has serious structural problems that will likely prevent adoption.

    (1) The first issue is that INS model does not provide sufficient reward to Token holders to make it worthwhile as an investment. The Token holders capitalize the consumer Token but receive no share in the success of the business. Unfortunately, the Token does not compensate this lack of security with any kind of "interest" or other earnings (eg: operating Nodes etc…) so holding these have no measurable benefit. A smarter way to have set this up would have been to establish two Tokens – one representing investment stake in the Network & Enterprise Ecosystem (similar to NEO) and the other a Consumer Token (similar to NEO GAS) for generating Network Fees, and for consumers to use as currency for purchasing goods… Fees earned from Vendor programs and Network charges would then pay stakeholders equaly.

    (2) The second issue is consumer adoption, as the current structure does not encourage consumers to change purchasing habits. Consumers are likely to be resistant to the need to acquire a crypto Token that cannot be used outside of a single online store. Also consumer prices charged are set by the vendor but instead of passing through an agreed percentage of Supply Chain cost savings the Vendors believe they can increase margins and offer (optional) loyalty bonuses at their discretion. For this reason current trials in Amsterdam show no cost reductions for consumers. At the same time (due to so few Vendors participating) the choice of products offered on the INS portal is extremely small and unsatisfying – meaning that consumers will not be able to complete their weekly shopping cart from the INS virtual store and will have to still visit storefronts. If consumers do not see consistent benefits, it is hard to see mass adoption.

    Due to the number of experienced businesses moving into this space, I do not believe the INS Ecosystem will reach any meaningful markets in order to gain "pioneering advantage". Meanwhile alternatives are being developed in the markets of China, Germany/France and the US. More importantly these new ICO's will include a range of additional benefits for the consumer such as Spend reporting, QA / tracking, cross border benchmarking etc… as well as more benefits and better back-end integration for the Vendor and their supply chain partners. Best of all some will recognize the benefits of having investors on board and will build a model that brings everyone forward as the ecosystem succeeds… As it stands, INS has been a disappointment for Token holders as unlikely to provide a benefit to consumers or vendors in the future.

    Still not talking about ETN? Sad. They've accomplished a lot so far. After the 26th most people may regret not giving ETN some attention. Still a good video tho. I actually have a position in all three. I especially like DBET. Stay decentralized!!

    In spite of INS not yet returning to where it premiered at, I'm quite happy with how well it's holding and look forward to it rising more as the INS Ecosystem grows 🙂

    Nice you're going to talk about Enigma, I bought some a while ago. It's a great project (true decentralization), great team with MIT guys, not too many coins in total supply. Also, thanks for making such great videos. 😉

    Crypto Culture is being definitely polluted with misguided information on Telegram and youtube. I think you should focus on that and scams which are almost all ICOs.

    INS is pretty Interesting, definitely will check it out. Can you look into Genesis Vision? I think it's a game changer in the Financial/Investment arena for Crypto!

    A couple other coins I’m into are Achain(ACT – developer platform that allows/permits forks), Ethereum Classic(Callisto CLO airdrop happening soon, also now under IOHK’s wing), Moin(privacy coin with a POS consesus algorithm, low supply and very very low market cap-riskier but big reward). I’m a huge DeepOnion hodler as well but i know you’ve mentioned that one before. Looking forward to your next video.
