Valuation approach for tokens has been developed in collaboration with academics such as Andrea Buraschi, Chair in Finance at Imperial College London and industry experts Saswata Basu CEO (0Chain) and Mohammed Siam COO 0Chain.
The approach is based on the company 0Chain, an equilibrium methodology developed to solve for the price of goods and services based upon market conditions. To mathematically calculate the ZCN token price, they've determined network value by the medium of exchange principle (Buterin, 2017). The price of the token (C ) can be determined by the quantity of goods and services (P) that can be purchased with 1 ZCN token.
According to their study, they are projecting the $ZCN token to increase 1700% in 5 years time!
This makes ZCN the first and only cryptocurrency that has an underlying asset value based on mathematics, a real-world utillity, and a bottom price valuation compared to real-world goods and services.
Although they have chosen very conservative growth numbers for cloud storage usage, achieveing only 1% of market share would be 1600x more than their valuation assumptions. Also, not accounted in the valuation is the speculation value and value brought by other applications that will be built on top of 0ChainNet, such as cross border payment solutions, decentralized exchange, and other dApps.
Early this month 0Chain has released their Alphanet and 0Box app. 0Box is a Dropbox-style, zero-trust decentralized cloud storage app, more secure, faster and costless (when using ZCN), perfect for content creators and basically anyone who wants to protect their data and keep it away from the centralized entities such as Google Cloud, Dropbox, Facebook, etc.

• When a user locks their ZCN, these tokens collect an “interest” which can be used toward payment of transactions or data services.
• Super fast transactions with sub-second (0.45s) steady-state finality.
• ZCN can scale to infinite TPS on multiple parallel chains without impacting performance.
• ZCN can be used to receive services for “free” as the token is redeemable upon service completion.
• Distributed worldwide, built on the principles of blockchain with a growing set of miners.
