Cortex Profile (CTXC)
Project Safety Score
Mon, Jan 17, 2022 9:46 PM
Cortex is built on a new public chain called Cortex. The chain includes AI algorithms that support smart contracts, which means anyone can use Cortex to add AI to their smart contracts. It also creates an incentive mechanism for collective collaboration, allowing anyone to submit and optimize models in Cortex, while model contributors can also be rewarded. The end result of Cortex, according to the whitepaper, is the creation of “artificial general intelligence”, or AGI, “being born on the Cortex”. Cortex completed a private token sale in February/March 2018 for its CTXC tokens. That funding round was led by Bitmain and FBG Capital, among other well-known investors in the cryptocurrency space. Placing artificial intelligence systems on the blockchain isn’t a straightforward process. However, Cortex will solve this problem by allowing machine learning researchers around the world to upload well-trained corresponding data models to the storage layer of the Cortex public chain. Other users who need these AI models can make inferences using the models, then pay the person who developed those models. At each inference, a full node synchronizes the model and the data from the storage tier to the local site. Making an inference using Cortex’s unique virtual machine, or CVM, will synchronize the results to the whole network and then return the result. Every time a user initiates a transaction on the Cortex, opens a smart contract, or performs an intelligence inference, the user will need to pay a certain number of “Endorphin” tokens. Endorphin is the pricing unit for transactions on Cortex. However, the platform will have two tokens, including Endorphins and Cortex Coins (CTXC). The overall goal of Cortex is to provide state-of-the-art machine learning models on the blockchain where users can infer using smart contracts. Cortex also seeks to create a machine learning platform where users can post tasks on the platform or submit artificial intelligence-based decentralized apps. Cortex’s token sale began with a single private placement round. That round took place from February 7 to March 7, 2018, during which tokens were sold at a price of 1 ETH = 1500 CTXC. In March 2018, the company announced that it had reached its target cap of 40,000 ETH for 60 million CTXC, or 20.01% of the total token distribution. FBG Capital and Bitmain were lead investors during the token sale. CTXC tokens are ERC20 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. There’s a total supply of 299,792,458 tokens. Of the total supply, 50.03% (150 million) are reserved for Cortex coin miners as a mining reward, 24.95% (74,792,458) are dedicated to the project’s foundation from the genesis block (including 15.01% to the Cortex Lab, 9.01% to project marketing, and 0.93% to challenge bounties), with the remaining 5% going to advisors, academia, and the community from the genesis block. Cortex aims to place advanced artificial intelligence systems on the blockchain. The company recently completed a private investment round during its token sale for CTXC tokens in February/March 2018. The next step is to roll out the Cortex public chain. Key features of the platform include its smart AI contracts and its Cortex Virtual Machine, both of which allow for advanced AI-based smart contract programming.

Cortex Red Flags
There are currently no Cortex red flags.
Cortex Development Score
The Cortex project has 104 active source code repositories.
The most recent commit was Mon, Jan 17, 2022 3:44 AM
- 237 Watchers
- 737 Stars
- 807 Mentionable Users
- 0 Vulnerabilities
- 105 commits in the last 28 days.
- very good stars
- high mentionable users
- extremely high repo stars
- daily repo updates
- very low watchers
Cortex Sentiment Score
The sentiment score indicates how well the wider community regards the project. We analyse social media platforms such a Reddit, Twitter etc to access if the community is talking positively or negatively about a project. Or if they are even talking about the project at all!
The more articles that are available to analyse, the more confident we can be about the score. If there is not a lot of data available on the internet to use, this should be a redflag as it can indicate that no one is posting or writing about this project.
- The overall sentiment is very positive
- Enough of a collection of articles to be just about confident of the sentiment
Cortex Community Score
The community score indicates how active community is. Are they writing lots of articles and engaging in lots of conversations on the web? Where is the crypto communities attention spent? There are so many hours in the day to spend writing, reading, researching a project. So how much of this time is spent on Cortex?
The larger a community is then the more eyes are on that project. Sharing information, red flags and concerns is more likely the bigger the community is. And larger communities are alot hard to censor and control - therefore they provide a diverse range of opinions.
Overall Cortex has a strong community, posting and creating lots of content across the internet on social media, forums, blogs and websites.
- extremely high hashtag tweets
- extremely high gitHub account watchers
- very low reddit articles
Cortex Awareness Score
The awareness score indicates how well Cortex is known in the main stream. Its all very well for a project to have a discord channel to have 1000 users chatting all day about how great the Cortex is but a good measure of longevity is how well the project is known by the general public.
Overall Cortex this project is not known by the general community. If a project is new and has not had a lot of marketing or exposure then in general as the project grows the awareness score will increase.
- very low search result total
- very poor number of news articles mentioning Cortex
- very poor number of headlines about Cortex
- poor number of Cortex YouTube videos
Cortex Credibility Score
The credibility score indicates how credibility a project is. Does it have a ridiculous name? Is it run by a 13yr old in their basement? Is it just 2 days old and too early to tell?
- Good project age (released Apr 16, 2018)
Cortex Volume Score
The volume score is the simplest of all our metrics and quite often the bottom line metric. It doesnt matter how well a project scores on the other factors, if it is only shifting a few thousand dollars a day in volume then there is a high chance you will left holding a bag
- below average USD 24hr volume
Red flags come in all shapes and sizes
At the end of the day a cryptocurrency project requires you to part with your hard earned cash in order for it to become succesful.
You expect a level of transparency and professionalism from a project that is asking for your money.
There are all sorts of red flags which you should be weary of;
- 404 (missing) websites
- Expired SSL certs
- Malware/Hijacked sites
- Suspended Twitter accounts
- Private Subreddits
- SEC investiations
If you spot anything suspicious/resolved then please let us know.
Cortex Red flags
No red flags
No red flags have been identified. That doesnt mean its a 100% safe project, it just means that no red flags have been brought to our attention.
