CARBONEUM: The democratized social trading platform

The Carboneum team is creating an open protocol and a platform for democratized social trading on the basis of the ICON blockchain. The project aims to develop a network in which amateur traders with limited knowledge of the pre-coding market can reduce the risk of capital losses by tracking and copying trader transactions into public.

The Carboneum protocol will be used to build the CoinRadars DApp for social transactions. CoinRadars will connect followers with the leaders they want to track based on their expected returns and the level of risk they place. After tracking, the protocol ensures that all transactions made by the leader are copied and executed automatically for followers, as well as allowing people to start trading for the first time and learn. Ask from the experts. In addition, to protect the interests of traders, the Safety Belt feature allows followers to place orders automatically.

When the price reaches a certain level, the transaction will be automatically stopped. One of the differences of Carboneum with other projects is that Carboneum has its own token called C8. In case the follower trader gets a profit, they will have to pay a fee. A portion of the fee is paid to the Carboneum system and the rest is transferred to the leader. If your follower pays a fee of C8, they will get a 50% discount. This encourages followers to buy and use the C8 token naturally. In addition, the C8 token can be added to other existing products for the company's existing Carboneum products, namely the StockRadars (Fundamental Analysis and Traded Platform) and Fundradars ( investment platform).
 The core values ​​of the Carboneum platform include:
Transparency: All transactions and levels of success of the transaction will be recorded on the ICON blockchain. These types of information will be accessible by both the followers and the leader.
Simplicity: Beginners entering the pre-coding market can copy the behavior of professional traders instead of spending too much time learning about blockchains or market forces. right from the start. First they can follow up and then learn from the experts.
Engaging business model: Carboneum creates a situation that benefits both the followers and the leader. The leader's transactions are more successful, the higher their rankings are. As a result, they will have more followers and earn more. In return, followers will successfully complete the transaction process without spending much time and effort tracking the market.

Knowledge sharing: By looking at how leaders make trading orders, followers can learn trading strategies and update their knowledge. As a result, the community will be better equipped with knowledge.
There are a number of projects that simplify the transaction process. For example, Kryll has developed an intuitive platform that allows traders to create and share their trading strategies with each other but it will be difficult for traders to judge which strategy is good and Verify that traders are actually sharing the strategy effectively. Another example of a trading platform is eToro, eToro also allows people to follow successful traders. However, eToro is a centralized platform. Therefore, on this basis information of the trader can be abused and manipulated by the company. Meanwhile, Carboneum is decentralized and encourages both novices and professionals to participate in their own for-profit network. Leaders are selected based on evidence of their transactions, which can be easily verified. The system works simply and effectively by using transaction records and connecting traders together.

More importantly, one of the most impressive points of Carboneum is that they have ICON technical partners. Blockchain ICON has achieved great success and Carboneum can build their foundation on ICON blockchain to save their own blockchain development time.

3. The initial achievements of the project
Strategic Partnership with ICON
Information on the social channels of Carboneum and ICON, namely Medium and Twitter, shows that Carboneum and ICON have signed a strategic partnership. In this collaboration, ICON will help Carboneum develop technology on the ICON blockchain.

Mobilize capital

In the FAQ section on Medium, Carboneum mentioned that the project raised more than $ 2 million in presale.

When information about the strategic partnership between Carboneum and ICON is widely disseminated, the project will receive a lot of interest from the community. There may be many investors who are attracted and invested in the project.


  • Telegram: 20,878 members
  • Facebook: 9,368 followers

 The Telegram Group was created on March 7 and the number of members has increased dramatically. In the Telegram group, members ask questions and interact with the administrators quite often. The group also actively interacts with its members.

Also, Carboneum has a FAQ section on Medium. There are many questions from the community that are short and clear.

5. Token metrics

  • Total supply: 200 million C8
  • Hardcap: $ 12 million
  • 1 C8 = 0.1 USD
  • Token distribution
  • 60% PreSale & ICO
  • 20% of the company
  • 12% Groups & Partners
  • 5% Advisor
  • 3% Token Bonus (for referral users)

C8 Token Distribution Chart
 Two years after Carboneum was launched, 20% of the system's profits would be used to buy C8. In the third year, there will be two token acquisitions in a year. From the fourth year onwards, C8 will be acquired once in each quarter. This activity will take place until there are only 1 million C8 left on the open market.
Coins will be canceled.
The 3% bonus token seems a bit high. If the group wants to attract more public attention, they can invest more in marketing and accelerate technology development. If they release up to 60% of the tokens for pre-sale and ICO and 3% of tokens for user referrals, the acquisition of C8 will be costly later.
6. Roadmap
  • June 25, 2018: Crowdsale ICO @ 10:08 (GMT + 7)
  • July 8, 2018: Close the ICO
  • October 2018: First launch: CoinRadars, platform for crypto analysis and provision
  • Q1 2019: Preparing to launch social transaction platform
  • Q2 2019: Launches full social transaction platform for pre-encrypted and digital assets.
  • Q3 2019: Preparing to launch the Secure Social Trading Platform

* Subject to SEC regulations
Carboneum's development pathway
The team is now ready for the ICO. Although they have not released MVP or demo testnet, they should show the time they will launch MVP and testnet in the near future. The roadmap also needs more details on technological development.
In brief
The technological concept of the project is so clear that people can understand what Carboneum's upcoming plans are. This technology can be easily developed thanks to the ICON blockchain.

The incentive system of the Carboneum system will benefit both newbies and professionals in the pre-coding market. Good traders are encouraged to make good deals to get more fees while followers can slowly learn about the market and how to trade.

The company behind the Carboneum has achieved remarkable success, these successes can help investors and communities more confident in the project.

Things need to notice
In case the project is going well, they can publish some results or demo testnet to convince that the team can guarantee the development of the project. There should be more technological evidence on Github.
3% Tokens for referrals are pretty high because the tokens may fall on the floor. According to ICOgens' experience, the gender payoff for ideal bonus tokens should be only 1%.
Although the group has involved a large number of advisers, Carboneum should invite some blockchain experts to advise them.
