Strengths Weaknesses The Minerva ICO is one of a large number of competitors within the crypto-retail space that is seeking to crack the crypto mass adoption nut. Firstly, an initial reserve of tokens is held back from public circulation in the early life-cycle of the Minerva economy. These tokens will be released into the public pool when and if the token itself shows signs of overheating (on the back of speculative bubbles, for example). The idea is that new injections will prevent bubbles from becoming prohibitive to genuine participants (consumers and retailers) who require the token to engage in transactions between them. Secondly, Minerva will levy a micro-tax on each transaction between consumer and retailer which will serve to replenish the reserve pool. This will help to ensure that the reserve pool, over the long-term, avoids risk of exhaustion. This feedback mechanism – which discounts price manipulation by ignoring outliers – will then serve as the underlying motor for driving the strategies listed above. The major problem with cryptocurrencies at the moment, despite their unquestionable popularity, is the ‘currency’ part. Few, if any, cryptocurrencies are used as currency, i.e., for payment of goods and services received. Bitcoin used to play that role, in particular on the notorious Silk Road marketplace. But since the spike in its value, popularity, and volatility beginning in 2017, that function has been largely diminished. One blockchain startup, Minerva, named after the Roman goddess of wisdom and strategic warfare, sees this as an opportunity. Its goal is to get merchants to adopt its payment platform and token (the OWL token) through reverse transaction fees and price stability mechanisms. Let’s take a look at how it intends to achieve that. In a nutshell, Minerva (read its whitepaper here) is a cryptocurrency payment provider, using a smart contract system built on the Ethereum blockchain. It incentivizes merchant adoption with ‘reverse transaction fees,’ meaning that OWL tokens are paid to approved merchants plus has no chargebacks. In return, merchants should use some of the proceeds from the reverse transaction fees to provide discounts and so on to its customers. The Minerva platform itself will pay for its costs by taking a certain percentage of the reverse transaction fees paid out to the merchants. Traditional fiat currencies have excellent liquidity and are very stable. Hence only the first four points are actual incentives for a merchant to switch to the Minerva platform. The only real user incentive for the Minerva platform is theoretically cheaper products.

  • $0 - 1MM: 40% discount ($1,666,667 in token value) = 2,777,778 OWL
  • $1MM - 5MM: 30% discount ($5,714,286 in token value) = 9,523,810 OWL
  • $5MM - 10MM: 20% discount ($6,250,000 in token value) = 10,416,667 OWL

Because of the reverse transaction fees paid to merchants, they should be able to offer them discounts.

It is quite clear that Minerva’s strategy focuses on onboarding merchants first, on the assumption that users will naturally follow. OWLs have something known as a ‘reward rate,’ which is the rate that new OWLs are ‘minted’ and inserted into the circulating supply. This reward rate and the price of OWL are directly proportional. Hence in a scenario where the OWL token price is rapidly increasing, the supply of OWL rises proportionally thus preventing large price spikes. The reward rate is capped at a maximum of 10%, and as long as it is positive, a portion of it is taxed for Minerva’s operational costs. Hence, the OWL tokens still have plenty of room to appreciate in value; the idea is merely to prevent dramatic short-term spikes. When the OWL price is decreasing, Minerva will incentivize users to temporarily take OWL tokens out of circulation. This will be done by giving them the option to freeze their OWL tokens for a period in exchange for a potential bonus. The greater the price decline, the higher the bonus offered. These bonuses are sourced from the MVP vault. Should the vault be exhausted, no bonus incentives will be offered, and the price will continue to decline. Minerva’s US-based team is small; consisting of only 11 people. The founders appear to be internet marketing veterans, which may be useful for the marketing side of this project but raises the question of technical ability to execute. Their advisory team is also small and don’t have any well-known names on the list. Minerva has broken its development roadmap into seven tiers, from Tier 0 to Tier 6. At present, it has completed Tier 0 and is at Tier 1, carrying out its bug bounty program and doing further testing on its MVP protocol. Worryingly, unlike most other blockchain projects which state a target completion date for each stage of their roadmaps, Minerva has not put any target dates whatsoever. The lack of any concrete timeline is not a positive indication in the least. At present, Minerva is being developed on the Ethereum platform. No further details have been provided on this planned hard fork. The lack of details again raises concerns as it can impact the viability of the entire project. Minerva recently announced on its (sparsely populated) blog that it has signed on its first approved platform. It claims that this platform does over $20m in revenues with more than 10 million users. And it’s also an adult webcam site. If this happens, it will affect Minerva’s public perception which might, in turn, affect the chances of merchants applying for its platform. Needless to say, this would be a big negative for Minerva. At the time of this writing, the dates for Minerva’s token sale remain up in the air. One thing the team has confirmed is a soft cap of $1m and a hard cap of $10m. They have also said that presale registrations will be opened up ‘very shortly,’ sometime during the first quarter of 2018. In the fast-paced world of blockchain startups and ICOs, Minerva is moving very slow, far too slow for its own good. The Minerva project was announced sometime in August 2017, and while that generated a good bit of buzz for the project, it has since largely died down. It’s not difficult to see why. Minerva’s blog barely has any content.

It doesn’t have its own subreddit.

Its Twitter account is not very active. It doesn’t have any concrete timeline for achieving its roadmap or any hard dates for its token sale. This doesn’t look good for the project at all. While Minerva has a great concept (reverse transaction fees coupled with price stability mechanisms), it looks as if the execution leaves a lot to be desired. Despite the onboarding of their first merchant, the platform’s viability still seems to be up in the air at the moment, especially with the planned hard fork. The slowness of Minerva’s execution means that buzz and hence the short-term potential for its OWL token doesn’t look very promising at all. And if Minerva can’t perform well in the short term, or raise sufficient funds from its tokens sale, then its long-term potential looks similarly bleak. What are your thoughts on Minerva?

The crowdfunding portal will be self adjusting to the current price of ETH (Ethereum) at the time of contribution. We will adjust the hard cap of the ICO, prior to the official launch, based on the amount raised in presale. If, $5MM raised presale, our ICO’s hard cap will be set to $30MM worth of ETH. The primary issue with a discount model (and fluctuating price of ETH) is trying to cap the amount of tokens that can be distributed prior to launching the smart contracts. This method will let us reach our hard cap and make sure we can make good on our discounts. Side Note: If presale hard cap is not reached, the main adjustable number for our public ICO is the amount of ETH we accept in the 1% discount range. This will allow our discounts rates to be consistent and still reach our hard cap.

Jevgenijs Steinbuks: Founding economic advisor.

Working also as Economist at The World Bank. With cryptocurrencies going mainstream, more and more people are asking how trading and holding of it should be reported to the tax authorities in their respective countries. And not only are people wondering, even the tax authorities themselves sometimes seem to have a hard time figuring out how they should deal with it. Although guidelines in many countries remain unclear, we do know that the authorities have stepped up their efforts in uncovering unreported crypto fortunes with new measures. According to current regulations in the US, the IRS considers cryptocurrency as “property” for tax purposes, meaning each and every transaction is in fact reportable and taxable. This includes trading from fiat to crypto as well as from one crypto to another crypto. Although everyone was, of course, technically required to report their holdings and profits, very few did. The tax authorities didn’t know anything about bitcoin, and the risk of getting caught was small. This first started to change after the dark web marketplace Silk Road was shut down, most recently in 2014. Then came the extreme bull market of 2017, a lot more people got involved with crypto, and a lot of money was made in the market. And as always when someone is making a lot of money, the government wants its share of it. Today, taxes are again a hot topic of discussion among cryptocurrency investors, with many feeling anxious about previously unreported gains made in the crypto market. “The number one issue people come to me with is obviously taxation. The new Trump tax reform in the US really screwed a lot of people, and now even intra-crypto trades are taxable,” Andrew explained. Unfortunately, he said, the old strategy of leaving one’s home country only to “become a resident of nowhere” is increasingly not working. He explains that the IRS in the US is “really aggressive,” and that there is a real risk they will bust anyone who tries to evade taxes. In addition, Andrew said, “you’re probably going to want to spend the money some day. Each quarter, the IRS publishes a list of Americans who have renounced their citizenship in the quarter. The United States is one of very few countries in the world that taxes its non-resident citizens on their global income. Unfortunately for many of the readers, non-US citizens will therefore have an easier time implementing some of the strategies for lowering their crypto tax bill. Because of all this, it’s important to distinguish between US citizens and citizens of other high-tax countries when it comes to regulations and taxes related to crypto. If this means a significant monetary loss to you, it may well be worth it exploring options for relocating yourself. Featured image from VCG.com. This way we may see it actually be widely used.
