  2. Aqua Rights

    OUR VISION Water itself is not (yet) a traded commodity, one can invest in water rights and it is the kind of long-term theme that farsighted investors are including in their portfolios. Our vision is to create a new digital asset class with liquidity that can be exchanged for cryptocurrencies or fiat currencies by creating fractional ownership in actual water rights and removes the financial barrier to entry. Why Water Rights? The recent devastating drought in the U.S. has taught us a valuable lesson: Water isn’t as plentiful as we think. Water scarcity is a global theme and while water scarcity will not become acute tomorrow, investors with deep pockets and private equity funds continue to plow more money into water rights. Worldwide, the water sector is a $500 billion USD industry and growing. In the next 25 years, up to $25 trillion could be spent on global water according to the Global Water Fund. There is a fixed amount of water and growing demand and now is a great time to invest in water as people rethink how they use water and how much they need.

  4. A Tour of the Ethereum Token Bubble A Tour of the Ethereum Token Bubble I was not old enough during the dot-com bubble to experience it in any extent. It must have been something. The scope of it. The market correctly foresaw a leviathan. But it didn’t understand exactly its form. And in its uncertainty and excitement, it went mad. I’ve read a little about the time, read the archives of GettingIt.com, a grotesquely unprofitable valley-focused webzine published at the height of the bubble, whose offices, on bankruptcy, were inhabited by their former (and then-newly-homeless) editor-in-chief for over six months until finally he was kicked out. Legend has it, he spent most of those months inhaling vast quantities of nitrous oxide, leaving a comically large pile of empty whipit canisters for the landlord to clean up. The CAPE was at an all-time high of 44, never matched before or since. There were parties every weekend, the launch of each new startup or IPO trigging inconceivable celebrations with open bars, all at the investors’ expense. It was the age of pingpong tables, of ice-cream delivery startups, of eyeballs over dollars and IPO, IPO, IPO! It was a golden time for nerds, and a platinum time for fakers, scammers and wanna-bes. A hell of party and a hell of a hangover — the granddaddy of all bubbles. Quite an experience to live through I imagine, but one I could never quite understand. Most of those startups seemed so obviously to be terrible ideas. Why were people buying them? I wasn’t old enough to comprehend this question during the dot-com bubble, but I’m living through the ICO bubble now. And for the first time since I read the archives of Gettingit.com in bemused horror, I finally feel like I’ve had a taste of what its like. Sure, the ICO bubble is much smaller, but for all that its madness is keener, more concentrated. And the terrible ideas would make petfood.com blush. What is an ICO? It is not a security, at least not one that resembles any security that existed more than 5 years ago. I suppose you could call them commodities that are purchased overwhelmingly for speculative reasons. But I am getting ahead of myself. First, what is Ethereum? Ethereum is a blockchain protocol very similar to Bitcoin, but unlike Bitcoin it supports sophisticated forms of transactions known as smart contracts. These are simple programs that define when, how, and in what manner ETH (the name of the native token on the Ethereum network) is distributed. Most importantly for this article, this flexibility allows one to create new tokens on top of the Ethereum platform very easily. And it is these tokens or “coins” that are being speculated on in this bubble, “ICO” being an acronym for initial coin offering. These coins are sold as vital parts of as-yet-undeployed decentralized mechanisms (in the economics sense, as in “mechanism design”) which are purported to be useful at some point in the future, and their tokens are claimed to extract rent or value from the people who will use these services. As we will see, most of these projects are unlikely to be useful. And of those that have a chance of being useful, most don’t seem to clearly need the tokens that were sold and don’t have a clear path to provide value to the token holders, or are likely to be quickly forked into less rent-seeking forms. That is, unlike in the IPO bubble, for the most part token holders do not own any direct claim or share in the profits of these mechanisms. It is as if during the dot-com bubble people were not speculating on shares of useless companies but instead speculating on limited-supply coupons that could be redeemed to purchase the services of these companies on some indefinite future date. I cannot help but think this will end in tears. It is best to illustrate by example. So I am not accused of cherry picking, I will examine the top 8 Ethereum tokens by market cap — Note, I attempted to do this but as this was written over multiple weeks, the ranks changed rather quickly. We start with Golem. Golem currently has a market cap of $302,742,047 and intends to become a decentralized marketplace for computing. The team claims it will become cheaper than AWS, which I am highly skeptical of. Decentralized services presume you can’t trust those who provide you the service. Golem, for example, requires redundant layers of computation to ensure people do not game the system with fake computational results. Because of this, it seems very unlikely it will ever be more efficient than centralized services, especially ones as competitive and at such scale as modern cloud providers are. But I could be wrong; whether Golem will prove $302,742,047 useful is a matter of opinion, but what is not an open question is that the Golem Network Token (GNT) is a clumsy funding hack that decreases the usability of the platform. Here they announce the token: Notice how the value of GNT is defined not by what it enables, but what other tokens are proscribed from doing. GNT will be valuable because people will be prevented from purchasing Golem’s services with any other token. Instead of paying for your computations in ETH, you will have to go to an exchange, lose ~1% in exchange fees, this possibly on top of what you lost buying ETH, hope the volatility of GNT doesn’t screw you, then pay for your computations. And if this is worrying for users, it should be doubly worrying for investors. As Golem is entirely open source, there is nothing stopping anyone from forking Golem, pulling out the Golem Network Token and creating a better product that lacks the rent-seeking, using ETH instead. The classic response to this line of argument is “network effects”. But Golem is not a social network. It is a marketplace for a commodity with very low switching costs. The value of a computation platform doesn’t scale with its users in the same way the value of a social network does. The switching costs for both users and providers of computational services is very low comparatively. So GNT’s value comes at the expense of Golem’s users, offering no benefit over ETH. What about the next on the list, Augur’s REP token? REP gets a pass, as it looks to be a straightforward implementation of TruthCoin and I’ve always thought TruthCoin was very clever. Unlike Golem, it could not function without a second token. Though I doubt it is a good investment, it at least is not obviously a stupid idea. But back to the superfluous tokens. Next up, GNO. I hate to pick on Gnosis, as they are creating infrastructure for prediction markets, and this is God’s work. Nonetheless, their token, GNO, is duct-tapped into their contracts in an even more wacky way than Golem’s. Here they answer that perennial question, what are Gnoisis Tokens? Simple right… They explain further, and articulate my concerns about how easily such projects are forked to the benefit of the user and the perdition of the investor: So GNO is necessary to create WIZ, and WIZ can be used to pay trading fees. But unlike Golem’s token it is not artificially required to be used to pay for anything. However, they have a janky incentive structure designed to make WIZ more appealing, called the fee reduction mechanism. And this is necessary because if it wasn’t necessary someone would create a fork where WIZ wasn’t necessary, which would be disastrous. They elaborate: There is a notion in design of elements emerging from the process exactly. Of carving a tool just so, to solve the problem simply and naturally. Reading their whitepaper where everything seems to work fine with just ETH, I seriously wonder if the team at Gnosis can honestly say the WIZ and GNO tokens need to be there for any reason other than to provide a fig-leaf for raising a bunch of money from some very unknowledgeable investors. Next up, DigixDAO. DigixDAO tokens are just a normal security that offers people a share of transaction fees from a tokenized gold business. That is, Digix will allow one to redeem gold in exchange for a token (DGX) it creates. The holders of DigixDAO will get a percentage of the transaction fees required to send said tokens to others. Like Augur, this doesn’t strike me as obviously economically crazy. It’s a perfectly ordinary security really. However, there is an enormous amount of counterparty risk involved, as well as monstrously huge regulatory risks. Still, assuming hypothetically this is not a scam and ignoring the extremely enormous regulatory risks (and these are gigantic gimmies), their token as described at least makes economic sense. It is sad that being not obviously economically crazy is enough to put you in the top decile of projects in an ecosystem, but nonetheless, in this space this is the case. Next on the list is Round, a mediation platform for online videogame tournaments, which is so vaguely specified it’s hard to say much about it, save that I recommend the team learn LaTeX. But I ask you, even if you assume their idea makes sense, which it really does not seem to, does a mediation platform for online videogame tournaments that has no users and in fact no working product sound like something that would have a market cap of 86 million dollars in a sane market? Then we have SingularDTV, with its awful pun name. Its horrible site, a singularity of bad web design, has no link to a white paper, and I can’t find any information describing how it works or even what it is exactly. I have no idea what it does and after doing a little Googling I’m not convinced anyone else does either. All I know is it’s worth $97,801,800. Iconomi is a bit of an ouroboros,as it appears to be an Ethereum index fund of Ethereum tokens. One wonders if the best way to outperform this market is to not participate at all. Next, Melonport. In the first version of this article, I conflated its “green paper” with Iconomi’s white paper on recollection and even had the gall to make fun of them to be too similar! However, I’ve just read their green paper, and will rectify my error now. Much of it is at least interesting. Basicly, Melonport describes a protocol that allows one to create baskets of tokens and manage them with less counter party risk (though it does not eliminate said risk because the collateralized assets themselves in these baskets, obviously, would have some). In brief, they separate the role of managing a fund from that of holding its assets, allowing the creation of index funds and mutual funds with lower fees and theoretically lower risk. In a world where these tokens represented shares of real companies, this would be pretty useful. However, we don’t live in that world. We live in the world of tradable coupons for undeployed mechanisms. But this could certainly change if regulations change drastically. Still even if you grant it is useful, from the point of the investors it still looks to me they’ve been shortchanged. Reading the green paper, you will be stricken by the near absence of their token, MNT. It isn’t until you get to a footnote at the end that you see this: And so my above points about GNT and GNO seem to apply just as much to MLN. It, too, seems to be a lame funding hack, and just as subject to forking. Further, I would make an even stronger claim than I made of GNT and GNO: because the shares of these baskets are ERC20 tokens and their value is entirely that of the assets they hold, there is no possible moat or network effect that could prevent an MLN-less fork from taking over. The above tweet is from Vlad Zamfir, a very prominent developer of the Ethereum project, second only in prominence to its creator Vitalik Buterin. Ethereum and smart contracts are very interesting technologically, but they are very immature. This is no secret and people like Vlad and Rick Dudley are happy to proclaim it from the rooftops. But they are shouting into an abyss. People on both sides of these transactions smell easy money. The result is a potent combination of half-brained investment schemes and brainless investors trapped in a Keynesian beauty contest. Undoubtedly, this is a bubble. Undoubtedly, it will pop. But as with all bubbles, the trick is timing exactly when. And with that I am not able to help.

  6. Bitcoin Is Digital Gold. But Will You Buy a Sandwich With It? by Justina Lee June 19, 2017, 1:00 AM EDT Coinbase, BitPay report jump in payments amid price surge Wider adoption hampered by rising transaction times and costs For digital-marketing agency Cooperatize.com, taking bitcoin for payment was easy enough, all co-founder Roger Wu had to do was obtain a digital wallet. To promote the move in 2014, he even penned a blog post for Forbes explaining the decision. The number of transactions the New York-based firm has made since? Zero. “The biggest thing is are people willing to pay in bitcoin?” Wu said. “The reality is that most of our customers are other businesses and other businesses don’t use bitcoin." Even as the euphoria over bitcoin reached a fever pitch last week as the price surged to almost $3,000, slow transaction times and inertia are helping to prevent it from achieving widespread usage. Adoption has slowed, according to Morgan Stanley, after a slew of companies from Microsoft Corp. to Expedia Inc. initially trumpeted its use, and hurdles remain when it comes to longer-term viability. “We see few reasons for consumers to use bitcoin over a credit/debit card given that paying online with bitcoin represents a marginally more inconvenient way to pay,” Morgan Stanley analysts wrote in a 33-page report released June 13. Processing costs for bitcoin and other digital currencies are likely to grow, they said. Time Inc. and Dell Inc. said they’ve stopped accepting the cryptocurrency, with the computer maker citing low usage. When website content management system Wordpress stopped taking bitcoin in 2015, founder Matt Mullenweg said usage was “vanishingly small,” adding that it was initially incorporated for philosophical reasons, not commercial ones. “It’s quite possible that after a while you just realize it’s not worth the cost of tooling up to take it and you decide to drop it if the publicity has run its course,” said David Yermack, a professor at New York University Stern School of Business who studies bitcoin. Still, there’s plenty of evidence the price surge has helped boost bitcoin’s use -- albeit from a low base. Payment processor BitPay said its now handling about $2 million in transactions a day, up almost threefold from April 2016. Coinbase’s volume has doubled since the start of the year. Overstock.com Inc., an online discounter, said it’s been handling around 100,000 bitcoin transactions per week, up from about 30,000 when it first added the payment method in 2014.

  7. The bitcoin rally has been fueled by several causes: Japan passed a law in April recognizing the digital currency as a legal method of payment, leading to a surge in demand from Asian countries. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is reviewing a decision regarding approval for a bitcoin-based exchange traded fund proposed by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, known for their lawsuit against Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Other countries, including Russia, are looking at how to regulate bitcoin in order to tax it, but this could further stimulate demand for the cryptocurrency as it becomes legitimized. Daniel Masters is the chairman of XBT Provider, which offers a "bitcoin tracker" that can be traded and exchanged on the Nasdaq exchange in Stockholm. He expects Bitcoin to reach $4,000 by the end of the year. "Bitcoin is emerging as the transactional layer of the internet, as programmable money and as digital gold. That's the big picture," he told CNBC's Squawk Box on Thursday. Masters says the trend for high volatility in bitcoin is being diminished due to bitcoin's proliferation, with more products and exchanges set up, as well as the development of a short side of the market. He thinks the next catalysts for bitcoin price growth will come from greater volume. "What we've seen at XBT Provider is an increase in coverage and an increase in penetration into both the retail and institutional market. We're now being covered on Nasdaq OMX by 27 different broker dealers, and that is a stark increase from what we saw a year or two ago," he said.

  8. SO, YOU'VE BOUGHT BITCOIN. NOW WHAT? So, you’ve bought Bitcoin (or another cryptocurrency) and – hey! – it’s shot up in value. Good for you. But what do you do with your digital money now? If you’ve made a serious profit, you might be wary of leaving it on an exchange such as Coinbase or stashing it in an online wallet (after all, North Korean hackers have reportedly stolen almost $90,000 of Bitcoin in the last two years). The most secure alternative is to take your currency offline altogether with a “hardware wallet”. This is a purpose-built, secure device for cold-storing the private keys that allow you to spend your digital currency. Two of the most popular are the Ledger Nano S and the Trezor, both of which employ open-source code (meaning that even if the companies were to fold, the devices would not be rendered obsolete). We tested them both… Read Mode http://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/article/bitcoin-hardware-wallet
  9. Vladimir Putin Is Getting Interested in Bitcoin's Biggest Rival by Ilya Khrennikov June 6, 2017, 7:55 AM EDT Russian president met with founder of cryptocurrency Ethereum Country may use Ethereum to create national virtual currency Ethereum, the world’s largest cryptocurrency after bitcoin, has caught the attention of Vladimir Putin as a potential tool to help Russia diversify its economy beyond oil and gas. Putin met Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg Economic Forum last week and supported his plans to build contacts with local partners to implement blockchain technology in Russia, according to a statement on Kremlin’s website. “The digital economy isn’t a separate industry, it’s essentially the foundation for creating brand new business models,” Putin said at the event, discussing means to boost growth long-term after Russia ended its worst recession in two decades. Virtual currencies could help the economy by making transactions happen more quickly and safely online. Besides being a method of exchange, Ethereum can also serve as a ledger for everything from currency contracts to property rights, speeding up business by cutting out intermediaries such as public notaries. Russia’s central bank has already deployed an Ethereum-based blockchain as a pilot project to process online payments and verify customer data with lenders including Sberbank PJSC, Deputy Governor Olga Skorobogatova said at the St. Petersburg event. She didn’t rule out using Ethereum technologies for the development of a national virtual currency for Russia down the road. Last week, Russia’s state development bank VEB agreed to start using Ethereum for some administrative functions. Steelmaker Severstal PJSC tested Ethereum’s blockchain for secure transfer of international credit letters. Exclusive insights on technology around the world. “Blockchain may have the same effect on businesses that the emergence on the internet once had -- it would change business models, and eliminate intermediaries such as escrow agents and clerks,” said Vlad Martynov, an adviser for The Ethereum Foundation, a non-profit organization that backs the cryptocurrency. “If Russia implements it first, it will gain similar advantages to those the Western countries did at the start of the internet age.” Read More @ Bloomberg.com https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-06-06/putin-eyes-bitcoin-rival-to-spur-economic-growth-beyond-oil-gas

  17. This project expands Antonio Vega Macotela’s long-term research into exhaustion as an operation of scarcity and wealth, as well as it sets out an inquiry into the way value is produced within the complex set of interdependent relations that make up our global economy. The existence of “mills of blood” can be traced back to IV A .c in Grece This kind of machine was an apparatus used in places where neither wind nor water were available as means of production, and only labor could be used as source of energy. There were three of these kind of mills in Latin America, all three were used to make silver coins during the Spanish colony. There was one in Mexico, one in Peru and one in Bolivia. The MoB presented at dOCUMENTA 14 in Kassel is a reproduction of the Bolivian MoB. During the 100 days that dOCUMENTA 14 will run in Kassel the MoB will produce as many teios as the audience manages, out of a limited of 30,000 planchets. Each of this teios will in turn mine a crypto-teio. At the closing of dOCUMENTA 14 the production of these coins will stop and there will be no possibility to produce more teios, nor crypto-teios. The MoB will be destroyed. All of the teios produced will be collected, certified and deposited in a safe.

Visitors to Documenta art exhibition or this website will be able to buy the tokens generated each week. The number of existing tokens will be distributed in proportion to the invested value in BTC each week from July 1st, 2017. The mill will be the only miner of the network until the end of the ICO and it will be destroyed at the end of the art exhibition as well as the mold used for the physical coins. The reward for block resolution will always be 1 coin and there will be a 2 minutes space between blocks starting at the end of the ICO.30,000 more teos will be created by mining in order to maintain the Teios network. The price of each coin will be determined by the number of coins generated each week (max 300 days), proportionally according to the amount invested. During the Documenta 14 Art Exhibition, the “Mill of blood” will be generating metallic coins that will end up in an armored box placed in the underground of the mill. This box will be kept at Deutsche Bank at the end of the ICO and the physical coins will be used to support the value of the cryptocurrency that is generated each time a visitor spins around the mill making a coin fall into the box.

SOME HELP ON MINING FROM MEMBER onnz423: Quote from: onnz423 on June 16, 2017, 08:43:50 AM Many users have been asking how to mine, so if you wish to use your CPU for mining, i made a ready package with a bat script so the mining is ready go. The bat script uses my pool as default, the port with 512 diff but if you need a lower diff port, let me know and i'll reduce it. You can download the zip on mega. Your anti-virus might get a false detection of the miner, so expect that. You extract the folder from the zip into your desktop or whatever, then edit the bat file and replace "address" with your unify address, it is easy as that. Hope that this was helpful. Edit: just be aware that this should be just for testing mainly, cpu mining and gpu mining on scrypt is not very efficient so if you want to mine this coin, i recommend renting an asic or buying one.

Reach daily trading volume of 5000 USD. 3. Get listed on CoinMarketCap.com. WHITEPAPER / ROADMAP. DESCRIPTION: Unify is a cryptocurrency that was sucesfully launched on June 14'th, 2017. Unify aims at creating a cryptocurrency network that could be used by anyone who doesn't have any knowledge in cryptocurrencies, but wants to be a part of it. Unify is an alternative Bitcoin code based cryptocurrency that works on Scrypt algorithm. Unify uses a "Proof of Work" system, which allows it's users to get rewarded for their mining resources. Unify's reward system for miners is made to be the most rewarding to the early adopters - they will get the highest rewards. Block rewards will be halving every 3000 blocks: .........Block: Reward: 0-3000........ 3000 3000-6000... 1500 6000-9000... 750 9000-12000. 375 12000-15000 187.5 15000-18000 93.75 18000-21000 46.875 21000-24000 23.4375 24000-27000 11.71875 27000-30000 5.859375 30000-33000 2.929688 33001......... Change to POS system. * As an example - Bitcoin reward halving takes place every 210,000 blocks and rewards miners with 12.5 BTC. After 33000 blocks Unify reward system will be changed from "Proof of Work" to "Proof of Stake". Rewards to be announced later. (Estimated date: ~Q1, 2018) ROADMAP: Following milestones are crucial to reach our final goal: 1. Basic coin availability (estimated date Q2, 2017). First goal is a basic coin availability - to launch the coin to the public & to make it tradeable at the exchanges. This goal will be reached by completing following objectives: Creating a Unify wallet for Windows. Creating a Unify wallet for Linux. Making the coin mineable at mining pools. Listing Unify on cryptocurrency exchange websites. Creating other necessary attributes of the coin (block explorer, official website, social network accounts). 2. Extended coin availability (estimated date Q3, 2017). Second goal is to make the wallet easily accessible through all the possible platforms. This goal will be reached by completing following objectives: Creating a Unify wallet for Mac. Creating a Unify wallet for Android. Creating a Unify web wallet. 3. Making the Unify cryptocurrency understandable to those who do not have any experience with cryptocurrencies (estimated date Q1, 2018). Creating a fully functional official website where people could buy & sell the currency simply by using their credit card. Creating a Youtube channel with tutorial videos. Expanding social network accounts (getting bigger audience at Facebook & Twitter). Promoting the coin & learning content through social networks. 4. Making the Unify cryptocurrency adopted by various service providers (estimated date Q2, 2018). Creating a Unify based web marketplace, where people could buy digital & physical goods by paying with UNIFY. Informing service providers, manufacturers & all other companies about the Unify based web marketplace. Offering them to list their goods / services at the Unify based web marketplace. 5. To be announced! As we will complete all the previous goals, we will have a better understanding on what we should do next & we will announce it.
  22. ICO - The Next Big Thing in Digital Gold Rush This document is a study on Initial Coin Offerings (or ICO). 1. Vincent Fontaine – June 2017 vincent.f@intp.com ICO The Next Big Thing In Digital Gold Rush 2. 2 AGENDA 1.  Context 2.  What is an ICO? 3.  Benefits for Entrepreneurs 4.  Benefits for Investors 5.  Why it’s so hot? 6.  The Next Big Thing 7.  Benefits for the Tech Industry 8.  ICO vs Kickstarter vs VC vs IPO 9.  Digital Currency Market 10. Top Digital Assets 11. ICO Market 12. Market Share 13. Press & Media Coverage 14. About the author 3. 3 •  Bitcoin is up 150% to All Time High $3,000 •  Ethereum is up 3000% since January 2017 •  Crypto-currency market is flooded with more than 750 digital assets •  Ethereum is used to create and sale tokens to raise money (ICO) •  Bitcoin is used to buy all the digital assets, which increases demand CONTEXT 4. 4 à $1.5B raised via ICO these past 12 months à ICO just outpassed VC funding this year The so-called ICO (IniGal Coin Offering) in a decentralized crowdfunding process, without any third party (no banks or regulators). à Investors are backing projects by directly purchasing tokens emiced by entrepreneurs (token price and supply decided before the ICO) à The tokens are then traded on the market for Bitcoin or USD, almost immediately aeer the crowdfunding campaign ends. WHAT IS AN ICO? 5. 5 -  Entrepreneurs raise money in days, minutes (or even seconds) to develop their project and bring it to life -  They get paid in real-fme, thanks to Ethereum Blockchain and Smart Contracts -  Strategy: Fail Faster à Learn Faster à Succeed Faster BENEFITS FOR ENTREPRENEURS à BAT ICO raised $35M in 24 seconds last month à BANCOR ICO raised $150M in 3 hours this month 6. 6 -  Invest in inspiring, disrupfve and game changing projects -  Find visionary entrepreneurs in minutes, before VCs -  Get ultra liquid digital assets (tokens) to lower their risk BENEFITS FOR INVESTORS Smart investors and insftufonal traders oeen make astonishing profits on exchanges, shortly aeer purchasing tokens from the crowd- sale campaign. 7. 7 WHY IT’S SO HOT? à New tokens and young crypto-currencies are extremely volafle. à Most assets fail, but it’s usual to see up to +500% daily increase for the top performing digital assets. à From an investor’s point of view, ICO allows ultra liquid investments à Tokens are a vehicle for faster returns (or faster loss too, of course) So basically, an ICO is a crowdfunding campaign with all the benefits of an IPO or FOREX trading, where people invest or speculate on assets. 8. 8 THE NEXT BIG THING IS HERE To grasp the real scale of the ICO phenomenon: 1)  Have an idea + Launch a market study 2)  Develop the project + Get Friends & Family funding to build a Tech Startup 3)  Make a working prototype and raise seed capital 4)  Test the Proof Of Concept on real clients (are people willing to pay for that product or idea?) 5)  Convince VCs, make a Series A, then a Series B, then a Series C 6)  Then, if all of this was successful, list the company through an IPO 7)  Then, see the market reacfon to the new listed stock (are investors willing to buy the new listed stock? Is it valuable for long term investment or for pure speculafon?) à ICO = all of this in one month. Yes, it’s frightening. Tech industry will grow faster than ever starfng from right now. 9. 9 BENEFITS FOR THE TECH INDUSTRY •  Like always, 90% of ICO funded companies will fail to deliver •  But Top 10% will bring disrupfve and game changing innovafons to the world, faster than ever before (in weeks or months, not years) •  ICO can be seen as an IPO simulator and the perfect A/B tesfng tool to accelerate Research, Development and Innovafon. ICO is the perfect tool to quickly test market reacfons to a new enfty (Brand + Team + Product + Company etc.) with real money and real investors. 10.
