ICOs (INTIAL COIN OFFERINGS)

ICO is short for Initial Coin Offering, often a good opportunity to get into a new project as early adopter. You buy tokens from a project for a special price often with bonus tokens, stacked with your purchase size. However, this form is often used to scam newbies, many projects are doomed to fail. Here we check the whitepaper, the team, the vision, check for pitfalls and conclude if an investment is worth it or not.

[ICO SCOOP] HOLD – Lend. Borrow. Earn.

in ICOs (INTIAL COIN OFFERINGS)

Rich in cryptos, poor in fiat? This is something we observed quite often. Many people hold cryptocurrencies for thousands of dollars, but live a life with an average or below average standard, when it comes to their everyday needs. A general fiat-bridge into the real world is a demand. How about a fiat-bridge that enables you to spend your crypto funds as a kind of short-term loans without the need of selling them? On the other hand, there are many people just holding cryptocurrencies and while it is nice to have them growing in value in bull times, it feels…

Did you ever try to find the next super cheap coin or token, which you can buy for just a few cents/satoshis? Nothing can go wrong with a 5sat coin, right? Once it shots up to a dollar you’re a made man – so why not take a chance? Or another route: Why not research Coinmarketcap and spread buy orders over all these cheapos?

[ICO Scoop] Sonder – New Crypto Lifeblood for E-Commerce

in ICOs (INTIAL COIN OFFERINGS)/INVESTING IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES

As an e-commerce professional for over ten years, I am all ears when it comes to ICOs that target the online retail niche. Yes, there are a few crypto payment gateways available, and you can use them in a crypto environment, but frankly, they are not made for the masses. I see customers flipping way too often when it comes to a simple PayPal transaction – no way they will send money in an irreversible transaction to a wallet address and wait for six confirmations and 32 minutes to get a success message. Aunt Marry just won’t do that to…

ICOs – A Two-Sided Medal

in ICOs (INTIAL COIN OFFERINGS)

There are several new projects that decide to make crowd-sales in which they offer investors early opportunities to purchase a share of projects that includes tokens/coins at a (probably) good price for the particular Altcoin tokens. You wonder about that “probably”? Well, it is not uncommon to see an ICO token below the ICO price, once it hit the exchanges. Legit ICOs can give you a nice return, but these are hard to find in a shark tank full of scammers.

Electroneum Wallets to be released today – Trade on Cryptopia

in CRYPTOCURRENCY NEWS/ICOs (INTIAL COIN OFFERINGS)/TRADING CRYPTOCURRENCIES

The long awaited release of the ELECTRONEUM wallets is scheduled for today 12:00 PM GMT. The asset is listed on Cryptopia and can be traded there. We expect a huge dump, as many people have been waiting very long for this moment. The ICO has been marketed very strongly and raised the hard cap fast. Miners have been able to trade it already, while the investors had to wait for the wallet release. The wallet had been deactivated due to a security incident, which should be solved now by HackerOne, which also did some  intense pen-testing in the last weeks.

in ICOs (INTIAL COIN OFFERINGS)/TRADING CRYPTOCURRENCIES

The ICO by SPECTRE is a project that is important to us.

[ICO SCOOP #2] Crypterium ICO Review: “The future of CryptoBanking”

in ICOs (INTIAL COIN OFFERINGS)/INVESTING IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES
Crypterium ICO Review

The great thing about the crypto space is the reward of finding new innovative uses/cases for blockchain tech as you peruse the infinite web. With Crypterium we think we have found a big winner, even bigger than current bellwethers such as NEO/Litecoin/Ripple, oh such blasphemy! Where Ripple promotes the idea of crypto-banking, Crypterium will look to execute it, and in our opinion in doing so take the leadership role with first mover status. Also note we are talking full crypto-banking here, not just a payment processor or protocol based.

Halo vs Cobinhood – Who’s David and who Goliath?

in ICOs (INTIAL COIN OFFERINGS)/INVESTING IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES/TRADING CRYPTOCURRENCIES

Two ICOs – two new exchanges: COBINHOOD and HALOPLATFORM. The landscape of exchanges for crypto enthusiasts is a sad one. Security breaches (e.g. Litebit.eu), non existing support (bitfinex, bittrex, et al.), ugly interfaces, nerdy interfaces, premium fees to pay. Those exchanges give the impression that they only wish to milk the cow. They literally do not offer a state-of-the-art experience when it comes to their platforms (look at COSS and have a healthy belly laugh). But who is it that listens to the complaints and desires of the crypto community? We think we have found in our belief a few…

in ICOs (INTIAL COIN OFFERINGS)

Know first and foremost that the very site you are on at this moment was built in part due to the spectre.ai vision, purely from the love and betterment of trading for all. In the future we plan many posts on the site of spectre.ai and that of “smart options”, imo this group and the asset class will rule the industry for years to come (if you need an introduction was SPECTRE is, read here). There were more popular ICOs we looked at, though none can compare in depth or breadth, on an intrinsic scope to the SPECTRE offering. Below…
