This is an example of the level of analysis that our Veritas token holders can come to expect. The research will be available a la carte in exchange for Veritas tokens (VERI) until our financial machines are operational - after which all research will be available only through digital asset exposure of the machines. 

See this video or Veritaseum found Reggie Middleton in a fireside chat with hedge fund managers at Citco corporate headquarters for a fuller explanation or Veritaseum's Peer-to-Peer Capital Assets business model.

We welcome one and all to compare and contrast our Veritas token-powered research with the best that the web has to offer. For the topic of Gnosis, we suggest you reference Token Market and Smith and Crown. Only We have an entire team of buy-side financial analysts, engineers and forensic accountants led by the globally renown investor and Veritaseum founder Reggie Middleton, focused specifically on the token, digital asset and ICO sector.,

Gnosis is providing a platform for the next generation of prediction markets. The platform is built on Ethereum. Users shall be able to forecast future events by using the platform and will be creating different events thereon. The platform works on a decentralized model which allows participants to place their predictions on an event, which then gets aggregated to form a collective view on prediction. In simple words, Gnosis attempts to create among other things a unique forecasting tool for people to render and receive projections for an event or result.

Besides this, it aims to create an ecosystem of customized information search wherein any person can post a question and fund search for the answer. The availability of unlimited resources creates a market for prediction, and the users as well as those participating in the prediction benefit for their intellect and knowledge.

The Company is attempting to create a smart contract universe to reward successful users for predicting the outcome correctly. The way in which Gnosis prediction works:



Details of Gnosis Token



10 million fixed tokens (GNO) which generate WIZ. WIZ can be used to pay fees on the platform. Apparently, on 3.16% of the tokens were Dutch auctioned off for $12.5 million dollars

Additional Tokens

No additional tokens to be released, for at least a year (token lock-up period), although 10 million created

Underlying Blockchain



Group into three layers of services : Layer 1 (Core), Layer 2 (Services) and Layer 3 (Applications)


Decentralized prediction model



The Core layer enables smart contracts for Gnosis use:

These services will be free for use.

The Services Layer will offer trading fee model and additional services over the Gnosis Core.

These services will attract a fee. Participants at Gnosis Core level will upgrade to this level of service due to wider potential applications, use cases and benefits.

The Application Layer will target specific prediction market in areas like the following:

These applications will attract additional fee or charges on the basis of market making, information selling, or advertising.


      Company History



Aspects of Interest in the Time Line:


Revenues during 12 months (USD thousand)


Gnosis revenues

Gnosis is likely to derive the majority of its “operating” (more on this later) revenue from Layer 3 services in the latter months of the above 12 month period.


Gross Profit during 12 months (USD thousand)


Gnosis Gross Profit

Gross margin of the Company is expected to widen on account of increase in the share of revenue from higher margin services in the total revenue.



EBITDA during 12 months (USD thousand)



Similar to the trend of gross margin, the EBITDA is expected to grow in line with the increase in the share of revenue from Layer 2 and Layer 3 services.

This exercise of analysis of valuation is being conducted in order to assess the fair value of Gnosis. We analyzed the fair valuation of Gnosis’ “operating” rrevenues in accordance with the Growth Rate Decay Trajectory method. The growth rates in new companies are generally very high in first two years; however, these growth rates decline relatively predictably as the companies mature. On a separate note, using relative valuation approach or Discounted Cash Flow approach will not give plausible results as they don’t account for longer term revenues and are sensitive to near-to-medium term cash flows. None of these methods fully capture the entire value-add of all three layers, though. This is our default valuation metric for blockchain-based platforms, and platform-centric application builders – with an addendum for token appreciation.

Following is the methodology for the valuation of Gnosis:

Growth Rate Decay Trajectory Method:

The Growth Rate Decay Trajectory method estimates the value of a business based on the current revenues and trailing revenue growth during the forecasted period.

The method is based on projected long-term trend in revenue without emphasizing on the near-to-medium term cash flows. This method is, therefore, ideal for a business that has potential to have multiplier growth in the longer run but burns through its cash flow in the short-to-medium term.

We have assumed the below mentioned growth paths forward:


Below table shows the three different growth paths for initial growth rates ranging from 30% to 100%:

The five year revenue expansion figure in the above table shows that a company should not decay at anything above the industry’s expected decay. Though the figures of growth decay may differ only slightly, their implication of 5 year revenues can be huge.

This 5 year expansion multiple is applied to the current revenue for valuation. This method is best suited for companies with the potential to have long term revenue (and expected to burn cash in the near-to-medium term) as against the Discounted Cash Flow and Relative Valuation Method.

Blockchain Ecosystem-specific Economic Revenue Recognition

A significant portion of economic value of companies such as Gnosis stems not from traditional operating earnings, but from token value (held on or off balance sheet) appreciation. As the platform matures and transaction volume steadily increases, so does token value. Below is an example of how this as worked on the Ethereum platform, which Gnosis is based upon, and who’s senior board members have founded.

The significant portion of economic revenue that is token appreciation is represented as follows…


Gnosis Economic Revenue Pie

 We have assumed that Gnosis is expected to have revenue growth of more than 90.0% in next five years.  Based on the Growth Rate Decay Trajectory Method valuation approach, the Value of the Company will range from XXXx and XXXx of the annual revenue. First year (12 months) of the Company is estimated at $X.0 million.

Based on the table below, the value of Gnosis (if it is able to achieve revenue of $x.0 million and rate of growth in annual revenue of 90% and above) can range between $xx.x million to $xxx million.
