I am usually very skeptical on any investment, especially cryptocurrency, can't blame me, with all the scams running around. I wasn't very active in crypto-sphere, but I like supply-chain use-case of blockchain, and recently TE-FOOD caught my attention, so I started doing my "DYOR" on it...and I didn't get far before I need some help from you guys: the long-time veterans/supporters here. I hope you help me with an open-mind, instead of dismissing every legit questions as pure FUD, like other coin's sub-reddit. I am here to learn from you.
Please, do not cite anything from TE-FOOD as the proof/source, and nothing from "journalism"/"news" media sites either (such as forbes/yahoo/cointelegraph/etc), it's really hard to trust journalism nowadays. So, for example, to proof a partnership, I wouldn't believe unless it is one of the following:
an official press release from the partnering company itself, not the ones from TE-FOOD
TE-FOOD listed as an affiliate/partner on the partnering company's official website
at the very least: just a simple tweet/retweet by the partnering company about the partnership.
Alright, without further ado, here's my questions:
Q1) Halal Trail
TE-FOOD cited partnership with Halal Trail, and Halal Trail's tweeter confirmed it, so it's a legit confirmed partnership. But Halal Trail twitter is created on April 2008, and its website currently is just a countdown to launch. A further whois look-up shows that:
Seems that it's created on late March 2018 as well....I mean, I can't see how this partnership currently can add value to TE FOOD in any way, it seems to be a totally new company with no track record? Yes, perhaps in the future Halal Trail will grow and attracts customer to TE-FOOD, but I just can't find any history/track-record to prove that they will be successful in the future?
Or maybe I missed something, and Halal Trail actually already have some promising customer on board, or has proven track record? Please help provide some information, thanks.
Supposedly NDS is involved, and MegaMart is "preferably" involved (literally stated there).
But let's forget about the MegaMart, because it's only "preferably", doesn't mean it already happened (maybe in the future).
Yet, I still cannot find any official announcement from the NDS side? Can someone points me to an official information source from NDS about partnership with TE-FOOD? Twitter, website, press-release, anything from NDS itself is fine, instead of some external media site or TE-FOOD? Thanks in advance.
Q3) Telenorma and Laurel Retail
Same situation as Q2, there's simply no official source I can find from Telenorma or Laurel about the partnership. Yes, I know this medium post where there's a handshake photo:
It only has 10,000+ installation, and only 10 total reviews with comments, and they all happened during a very narrow date range: between December 6, 2016 and January 16, 2017...that's more than a-year-and-a-half ago, and merely a-month-and-a-half between the first and last comment? The last comment on Jan 16, 2017 google translated to English as "Too bad Scan does not output information ". Is it not working?
There are 5 applications with TE-FOOD logo (the first 5 results) with application name:
TE-FOOD International Public
TE FOOD Shop Checker
TE-FOOD International Administration
Anyway, application 2 to 5 all have max "100+" installation, so they can't be the ones being actively used, these are out. So perhaps I got the wrong application? Can someone point me to the right one? I mean, I watched the video and the pictures on TE-FOOD...BigC, AEON, Auchan seems to use it, but I can't find any news/website about BigC AEON Auchan talking about it? Because, if it's something they are doing better than their competitors, I am sure BigC/AEON/Auchan couldn't wait to tell the world: "Look at us! See how we are being more innovative and better than our competitors!", make sense? There should be able official statement or promotional material from BigC/AEON/Auchan about having such solution, right?
Anyway, please let me know if I am wrong, or point me to a BigC/AEON/Auchan information source (even if it's in foreign language,that's fine).
Whew! That's all my questions for now, I hope I am making some sense here, as I said I am totally new to TE-FOOD, please help, thank you.
