Never Be The Greater Fool
BlueFlare produces investment-grade due diligence reports for you, the initial coin offering investor.
Traditionally, assessments cost thousands. We spread costs across hundreds of buyers to give you high-quality reports for as low as $25.
Each upcoming report has its own open source Ethereum smart contract that governs crowdfunding goals and timelines.
If the goal is met, BlueFlare creates and delivers the report to backers. If the goal is not met, backers are automatically refunded.

Alternative asset enthusiasts David Newell and Christopher Hiller founded BlueFlare after recognizing that a nonexistent regulatory framework combined with unmatched investor demand was creating avoidable risk in the ICO marketplace.
BlueFlare’s team has a diverse background in investment banking, technology startups, and alternative asset due diligence and valuation.
What Do We Cover?
What is the company trying to accomplish?
The strategic value and commercial viability of the ICO’s project is paramount to ensuring funds are being used towards a successful outcome. In this area, focus is placed on the value captured by the proposed token’s disintermediation effect. We also conduct a technical assessment with the support of industry experts, analyzing the hardware and software requirements for the project and the team’s ability to meet them.
Is planned spending in line with industry standards?
The use and mix of ICO proceeds for project research and development versus team remuneration is of paramount importance to the credibility and success of an ICO. We benchmark the proceeds usage versus other ICOs whilst also carefully scrutinizing the governance processes of the fund allocations to ensure a fair and appropriate usage of the ICO proceeds.
Is management trustworthy and experienced?
Analyzing the management team, advisory group and existing backers is crucial to assessing the success of an ICO. We analyse the depth and breadth of the team’s experience, together and individually, with an emphasis on blockchain and industry experience. In addition, we review the management team’s track record of delivering successful projects and conduct background checks to ensure past professional conduct and validate claims.
Are vesting schedules and liquidity profiles pro-investor?
The token and smart contract underlying the ICO assigns various rights and obligations to both investors and management. The smart contract governs (or should govern) management’s sell-down rights, the token’s liquidity profile, and any dispute resolution mechanisms. Our analysis focuses on transparency and attention to detail as the key factors to protecting investors and ensuring an active secondary market for monetization.
