HEROIC - ICO Review

HEROIC: Next-Gen Cyber Threat Prevention


HEROIC is another project that has taken up the task of combining the blockchain technology with artificial intelligence to create a solution for protection against numerous cyber threats. However, HEROIC tries to distinguish themselves from competitors in the same field by promising to deliver a high-end tech product that would be distributed at a rate that is affordable to the general population, not only to the resource-rich corporations. In addition, the symbiosis of two progressive technologies should eliminate the problems, inherent to the contemporary anti-cyber attack protection methods.

HEROIC Arc and other platform features


HEROIC envisage their solution as a decentralized peer-to-peer threat prevention network, built on the foundation of the Ethereum platform. The HEROIC ecosystem will run on three protocols: Threat Mining, Cyberlitics, and the Proof-of-Threat. The expected scope of application amounts to a massive number of use cases. By incorporating the blockchain technology, the team wants to provide an unparalleled cost-efficiency of their product, thanks to the elimination of intermediaries who often jack up the prices of their cyber protection solutions to collect better profits from huge corporations that handle billions of dollars.

But the accessibility of HEROIC would also be accompanied by the superior quality of their platform, as it’s supposed to shield the users not only from the existing cyber threat, but also from the so-called next-generation ones. The platform itself will bear the name HEROIC Arc Reactor that will operate on the principle of intelligence exchange between all actors. It will combine an open repository and a cutting-edge marketplace for data related to the detected, as well as the predicted, cyber threats and attack strategies. 

The second component would be HEROIC Garden, a state-of-the-art consolidated system for managing cyber menaces. Basically, it is a cloud-based think tank where software developers and the corresponding companies can work conjointly on the development of improved solutions, being rewarded for their efforts with the platform’s native token HRO that is currently purchasable at the pre-sale event.

There would also be the Research & Development facility where the developers and company representatives can co-work in real-time on the ways to reinforce the bulwark that protects against modern threats and create means for preventing the emerging ones.

Apart from general users and developers, the HEROIC ecosystem would also feature Threat Miners, the participants who mine HRO by lending their computational resources and sharing an anonymized historical threat data.


The HEROIC team

  • Chad Bennet. The founder and CEO. A seasoned IT security engineer who laid the bedrock of what is now HEROIC Cybersecurity in November 2015. Before that, Chad was involved with several investment firms and IT companies, for instance, Lancera and Vested Group.

ICO details


As already mentioned, HEROIC is carrying out the preliminary sale of HRO tokens, aiming to reach the hardcap of $15 million. The current price of one HRO token is $0.1125, but early investors can expect to get more tokens via the available bonus program. There is a minimum investment threshold that stands at $1000. HRO tokens can be purchased with BTC or ETH. HEROIC chose not to restrict any investors from buying their tokens.

As much as I want to think of Heroic as of a blockchain project that holds immense potential, I can't help but wonder whether the offered technology would be fully viable at first. And if not, how long would it take HEROIC to turn it into a seamlessly operating system. Judging from my experience, the entire path from ICO to public recognition would take approximately two to three years, so don't expect quick returns on your investment.

HEROIC is one of the few projects in this space that has the potential to make an exemplary use case for blockchain that will significantly benefit the industry. Their team appears to be reliable and competent, the CEO has his skin in the game, so he must have a clear vision of how the HEROIC platform should operate, and how their ideas can be monetized for the investors’ benefit.

Before even considering an investment in ICO, I always visit the section of the startup's official website that includes information about fund allocation. The overwhelming majority of nascent crypto projects aren't concealing their intention to allocate sometimes more than half of raised funds for marketing needs, which is a strong indicator for me that they are more focused on hype than product development. The situation with HEROIC is different: these guys promise to allocate 64% of the money for development and operations, which is the right thing to do.
