ServerCube ICO Review
The ServerCube team of 5 members is a small but efficient team. ServerCube’s COO, Jesse Brown has quite some experience in the Blockchain industry. However, the rest of the team lacks experience in the industry. The team has a lot of experience in their respective fields which is something that they can put to use while working on the project. There is no information on their website about their advisors, so let’s start with the team members:
- Sunil G. Singh: Sunil has 20+ years of healthcare enterprise IT management as the CEO of DBMS Consulting, a specialized healthcare IT services and cloud solution provider to top tier pharmaceutical, medical device, biotech and government institutes globally. He has an innate understanding of how global enterprises work and what is needed to achieve scale and profitability.
- Jesse W. Brown: Jesse is ServerCube’s Blockchain Architect. Previously, he served as the CTO/Blockchain Solutions Architect at healthcare startup, Patientory, and Enterprise Blockchain Architect at the Ford Motor Credit Company. Jesse believes cryptocurrency can reshape how wealth is generated and value distributed, through decentralized, edge computing methodologies.
- Kelly O’Brien: Kelly is a veteran of Madison Avenue ad agencies, where for over 20 years, she created communication strategies for clients in technology, telecom, healthcare, and education. She has a passion for technology and its potential to create a marketing advantage for businesses and more meaningful experiences for consumers.
- Anuj Mathur: Anuj earned his MBA in Healthcare Services. He has been involved in managing and providing healthcare facilities to reduce suffering by developing new treatment techniques.
- Betul Ceyda Duman: Betul has been working in international trade and expo programs representing Turkey for over 10 years, both in Turkey and other countries. She has an expertise in motivating and organizing teams as well as coordinating large-scale projects involving many stakeholders.

ServerCube turns the centralized data center model upside down. By putting high-powered computers into residential and other small, private environments, ServerCube is creating a powerful, 5G edge distributed computing network that truly delivers on the Blockchain paradigm — with a greener footprint.
ServerCube’s product is the ServerCube ecosystem consisting of the ServerCube device, ServerCube network, and the middleware ServerCube Connect.
ServerCube network is a global distributed model which harnesses the high-performance computing muscle of SC Devices collectively to distribute vast computational resources to the P2P network. This aggregate computing power will open new revenue streams in areas that require high-performance computing.
ServerCube Connect is a dynamic middleware layer that shares encrypted data with counterparties outside of the ServerCube network. It connects the outside world, enabling transactions across public Blockchains such as Ethereum, Bitcoin, or Dash; and private Blockchains such as Corda, Hyperledger, etc. In addition, fiat currency transfers are supported on the network.
The SC Device is the next-generation residential mini-supercomputers connected to other SC Devices around the world forming the ServerCube P2P swarm network. The set-up is simple plug-and-play into any standard (1200-Watt) household outlet, requiring only a basic consumer broadband connection to connect to the internet. Unlike “professional” mining rigs, it runs relatively quiet and cool and is encased for household safety.
Potential for Idea
There is a lot of potential for the idea. The existing Blockchain as a Service (Baas) solutions are provided by Amazon, Microsoft, R3 and a few others. While these are big names with a lot of capital to invest, the implementation of BaaS is at a native stage. There is a lot of room for improvement and that is where I believe the team can shine. They give you a lot of information about how they would be implementing things which is again something which makes me believe that they would make it large.
They are still having the private coin sale and would have the public sale in Q2 2018. So they haven’t even started marketing yet. I expect them to market a lot once they are ready but as for now, I would have to rate them according to how they are marketing right now. Currently, they have 68 followers on Twitter and 14 followers on Facebook. But then, the numbers are expected to rise soon.
Pros & Cons
Some of the benefits of going for ServerCube include:
- It is secure
- It is less expensive than AWS and Azure
- It rewards users for using the service
The disadvantage of going for ServerCube is that they don’t have strong advisors backing them up right now. Once they have good advisors on their team, the project would be really strong.
