Competitor’s comparison

As a competitor we can find Coingate.

  • Coingate has a great team, starting from the CEO Dmitrijus Borisenka, he has 10+ years of experience in multiple ventures, he is involved in the blockchain field since 2012, they have also good developers. Araw’s team is quite good but I think they need more developers.
  • The idea is great, let the merchants accept Bitcoin and other cryptos in the first step to spread cryptocurrencies.
  • The MVP for Coingate is completed and the platform is already online and usable, for Araw, we have a beta MVP with random images just to let you try the platform, a lot of work has to be done.
  • Araw token supply is 5,000,000,000 ARAW, Coingate has not done an ICO, so we don’t have a token supply, at least I can say that 5 billion tokens are very much.

Personal opinion

I personally tried to accept cryptocurrency payments in an E-Commerce, it’s not simple at all, furthermore most of the clients don’t know nothing about cryptocurrencies and they are scared when they see messages like “we accept Bitcoin” they think it’s a scam website. Creating an eco-system to simplify the procedure and let pay people with cryptocurrency even if they don’t know nothing about it, will be a game changer.

What I like

  • Clear roadmap +2
  • Good Idea +1
  • Good vision +1

What I dislike

  • Bad MVP -1
  • Not complete team -1
