Alchemint ICO Review
Alchemint, a smart contract platform on top of NEO’s blockchain, is designed to offer consumer grade fiat-pegged crypto-currencies leveraging the distributed ledger technology and smart contract and is committed to building up a decentralized, resilient, open and transparent system of price-stable crypto-currency.
Popular digital currencies, such as BTC, ETH and NEO, are unable to become means of payment as a result of their huge price volatility, which to a large extent impedes the current blockchain projects getting down to earth. Alchemint uses smart contract to allow distributed creations of sdusd (a kind of stablecoin dynamically pegged to USD) with the collateralization of various crypto-assets, as backed by a set of mechanism that secures the stability of sdusd’s value.
[Main problems tackled]: Alchemint is not controlled by any individuals or organizations. It does not need audit companies or regular publication of reserved assets. Everyone is able to check real time market value of collateral, the circulation of stable currencies and the overall condition of the system on the public blockchain. Alchemint has a complete set of risk control measures to manage the collateral’s market value so that the fluctuating will not trigger crisis of the whole system. Anyone can issue stablecoin by mortgaging value-fluctuated NEO assets (or any digital assets approved by Alchemint Governance Committee) like sdusd with the exchange rate of 1 on USD (the currency can be euro or RMB). Since the sdusd is created, it can be used to pay like any other cryptocurrency, remit, store of value or top up in digital assets exchange to purchase other fundamental currencies of digital assets.

- Important part is that they will be part of the NEO core eco-system, so they will be automatically be pushed and promoted by the NEO council
- They will be used as well on the upcoming new NEX project, Neo Exchange
- unknown team for us, but since they are backed by the NEO council, it should be fine
- road map seems to be a very long term plan, so execution might be slower than we can hope for
This ICO is a no brainer, part of the core NEO eco system, and already fully promoted by Da Hongfei during the last NEO council meetups and presentations, will be part of their core system also for their upcoming NEX exchange.
For flipping, not very interesting, you have a very long vesting time, and tokens are given out per 3 months in batches.
Long term potential
The potential is amazing, this product is and should be a very profitable token in the long run when everything in the NEO economy is using it, if you believe in NEO you should also in alchemint, since they will become the Tether alternative for the NEO economy.
