TNB Second-round Pre-sale Rating Report
I. Analysis of the Market
The time trading platform Miaoa has had its own APP, selling the time of entrepreneurs, pop stars, celebrities and artists, who have their own price charts on the app, and those in demand can buy their time. The time can be sold in hours, minutes or even seconds , and the buyers can meet with these people, asking questions or learning from them. This concept is a very novel one, in the future, it is not only physical items that are valuable, but also virtual items like online game equipment. Such time value can be sold at their own prices, and can be objectively, quantitatively presented. So the author agree with the concept of time trading platform, which maximizes the individual value in an innovative way. The author’s understanding of the time value is that individuals rely on materials to survive, and working means using their own manual labor time in exchange for money, therefore, time is the most essential resource for individuals.
The value created by every individual’s time is different. Buffett’s three-hour lunch time is worth $ 2.67 million, since people admire his investment philosophy and hope to get the true meaning of successful investment from him. On Miaoa platform, celebrities have their own fans, and they sell their own time to interact more deeply with them, which manifests the worth of every second. Sellers sell their own time, offering their own skills, knowledge, intelligence and labor force in exchange of money. And for the buyers, they get the valuable chance to communicate with people with insightful thoughts.
There are four types of users on the M.I.T platform:
1. Time sellers, who spend their own time providing services to time buyers;
2. Time demanders, who buy time products;
3. Time speculators, who buy time and wait for its appreciation so as to achieve capital gains for the purpose of investment;
4. Time asset managers, who expand the market by introducing time investors and demanders.
1. The project is settled in token using the blockchain technology. In the international time trading platform, the settlement is faster. What’s more, time providers and demanders can trade more conveniently, for there is no cross-border settlement problem.
2. Because of the transparent and irreversible features of blockchian, the celebrities’ time price and basic information are open, so the previous packaging, speculation and credit issues will be resolved. After all, in this trading platform, information fluctuates hugely, and if the information asymmetry can be eliminated, both sellers and buyers would feel better.
In the time-trading apps, entrepreneurs, pop stars, celebrities and artists have their own price charts, those in demand can buy their time, and Miaoa is the front-runner in the time-trading industry. With the use of blockchain technology, participants trade more openly on the time-trading platform, and the international settlement issue can be resolved. In terms of first mover advantage and market share, TNC project has obvious superiority. In the future, the ICORoot team will keep tracking and reporting the progress of the project.

V. Analysis of the Profit Model
The white paper mentions that the TNB token will be recovered in the form of service charge on the MIT platform. Tokens recovered will be used for daily operation and maintenance as well as for the sharing of the eco-partners. Generally speaking, if the platform is in normal operation, and the TNB circulation continues to decrease, the trend of the price will be rising. The profitability of the trading platforms more or less rely on the income brought by service charge, because it’s clear and feasible. Therefore, the focus will be put on marketing of the platforms, and whether the platforms can be active or the token ecosystem can operate successfully will be determined by the participants’ recognition of the time value.

Total Score: 100 points Effective Score: 85 points
