-    Amount of tokens available for contributors: 150 000 000;

-    Total hard cap: $13 500 00 (rumors);

3.  Token release: vesting rules are the same for all the contributors! 25% before the exchanges and 25% every 2 months after listing. The timeframe for vesting is 6 months. 

4.  Activity in the social networks (data captured on 29.07.2018): 

Telegram EN (???) – there are no announcements channel and group at the moment, though there is a scam channel that is adding people, stay alert!!!:

Twitter (https://twitter.com/chromaway) – 2660 subscribers, 443 tweets, the page is pretty active. 

5.  Investors and partners:

There are rumors about FBG & #Hashed being invested in the project.

Unfortunately, there is no legit proof of that so far, however, it's promised to be published soon. In case these rumors are confirmed and #Hashed are invested in this project - this is a positive sign. It's one of the few funds in the current market, which does not invest in each and every project, like FBG.

Similar projects: 

The team compares its project with such well-known projects as EOS, Cardano, QTUM, Ethereum, but we consider it as the potential competitor of Hashgraph & Aergo more than that of Cardano & Ethereum. 

GitHub (https://github.com/chromaway):

Chromapolis's GitHub is private, which is not the case for ChromaWay, which contains 21 repositories holding more than 100 000 lines of code. The working process is rather slow, there are some abandoned repos with no tracked activity since 2015. 

We are sure that Chromapolis is being developed within the private repositories, as there is evidence that those were publicly available earlier. 


WP (https://drive.google.com/open?id=14SnyS0pJZKR12rYZ8p69P28Ls0hjh2Vz): 

The platform for decentralized applications based on the relational distributed database. 

The system will have its own blockchain (root), where each app will have its own sidechain. The data from the root chain will be also recorded on blockchains of Bitcoin and Ethereum:

-    DApps data will be stored in the relational distributed database;

-    There is a unique query language for queries to Rell database being developed, its queries are 7 times more compact than those of SQL. 

-    Consensus algorithm DPoS; 

-    Free transactions; 

-    Sharding (an application is using only the necessary number of nodes);

The quality of the white paper is quite high. There is a moderate amount of noise and the technical side is fully described.

ChromaWay has top-tier advisors. The one controversial there is Charlie Lee. This person practically abandoned his community by selling all his Litecoin at the top and posted that people still should buy them as the price would be even higher.  



Summary: 

This is a high-level project. We liked the terms of the token sale, modest bonuses, and absence of the seed round. The roadmap is rather tight – Chromapolis v1.0 launch is planned in December 2018. Full roadmap completion is set for July 2019. Chromapolis is a project by ChromaWay, which means that highly skilled employees of the latter are working on the former. The WP of the project is well done, not without any noise, but pretty decent overall. The project has high-level advisors and  ChromaWay has TOP-tier advisors.


Weaknesses: we can mention private GitHub, the absence of final token metrics, no channel and group in Telegram, and Charlie Lee as ChromaWay advisor.
