BitNationals team consist of industry experts in finance and wealth management. One concerning point about the team is that there doesn't seem to be experienced blockchain developers.
Token model is simple and effective. Tokens can be used for reduced fees in the ecosystem, which in turn should create demand that correlates with the amount of users in the ecosystem. The hard cap which is at the time of review around $50M seems just a bit too high. Lower hard cap would be a lot more attractive for investors.
Tokens allocated for the team will be vesting for 5 years. Releasing 20% of the tokens annually. This is the longest vesting period we have seen in the industry, raising the bar once more.
