The List of Upcoming, Active and Finished ICO



"Link your ICO to Success!"


ICOLINK.COM publishes the Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) List (directory) with brief descriptions, video presentations and links to websites, whitepages and social accounts in a convenient listing with the ability to search by categories and other criteria among the Active, Upcoming and Finished ICO.

What is ICO?

The abbreviation ICO stands for Initial Coin Offering, that is, the initial placement of coins (tokens). During the ICO, the project team sells digital tokens for cryptocurrencies or fiat money to investors. Later, these coins can be used on the project platform as an internal currency or trade them on exchanges. Also, instead of ICO, the term "crowdsale" is often used. 

Seven simple tips how not to become a victim of ICO-scammers

Despite the increase in the number of scammers, seven simple tips will avoid losing funds when investing in new projects. This information will help you quickly assess the potential prospects of IСO in terms of investment safety and significantly reduce your time spent on analysis. 

We do not rule out the possibility of the appearance in our listing of projects aimed at collecting funds only. Therefore, all our ratings are estimates of community members and show just recommendations to the authors of IСOs in the list.

ICOLINK.COM does not sell ratings in the list and does not involve outside experts. Due to this, we suggest that you independently evaluate the financial prospects of an IСO. In our opinion, it is the best way to avoid fraud.

Study the profiles of the startup team members on LinkedIn and other Social Networks 

It makes sense to carefully study the profiles on LinkedIn of key project participants (founders, managers and advisors) and try to find out on open sources real stories of their previous work experience. More credibility looks the ICO indicating on the pages of their website and in social accounts the real addresses of offices and real contact information.

Check the applications 

Read between the lines when it comes to the statements of project representatives. Before investing in the ICO, check to see if the statement of the project's representatives is unfounded. Read the Media topics linked on the ICO website and check the ratings on the main ICO Listings (some of these ratings are paid, some are not, so treat them as average indicators, which together can warn against investing in dangerous ICO).

Invest only in the existing product 

Stay away from ICO, which do not have at least a minimal working version of the product. We are talking about a viable service that should have a map of technological development and be at a certain stage of development. Do not invest in companies that just offer an unsupported ERC-20 tokens

Be wary of small projects 

A low collection threshold for ICO does not mean that it is not fraud. On the contrary, this may indicate the desire of criminals to provoke trust and attract as many investors as possible within a short period of time. Often in this case, scammers try to manipulate investors, speaking about the high price potential of the token.

Be wary of financial pyramids

Try to avoid investing in projects offering attractive bounty programs with network marketing features, reminiscent of their structure, financial pyramids.

Do not believe false promises

If a new startup emerges from nowhere, and its team emphasizes its revolutionary nature and promises a significant return on investment in the shortest possible time, you should study the project more carefully before investing in it. Fraudsters are excellent at throwing dust in their eyes and operating with a thirst for quick profit. 

Carefully study the Whitepaper 

When reading a Whitepaper, pay close attention to the Disclaimer, quality of the texts, the adequacy of the market and competitors analysis, and also the accuracy and clarity of the proposed product description

Be careful with participation in ICO-projects, do not accept all statements of startups on faith, independently research the work of the company and trust your intuition.

Blockchain will solve problems of identification, financial integration and international trade

ICO-NEWS--Blockchain-will-solve-problems-of-identification Michelle Chivunga | Adviser to the British Blockchain Association

According to Michelle Chivunga, the regional adviser to the British Blockchain Association, international trade, identification and financial isolation are the main areas that can be improved with the help of blockchain technology.

"I'm quite keen to help people in understanding what the potential of blockchain is," says Chivunga. "And at the same time I'm also quite passionate and I've done quite a bit of work and involvement with women's economic empowerment programs, working with different groups from UN women to the World Bank and a whole range of other organizations."

"I'm also focused on emerging markets and nations as there are a lot of opportunities for technology to help," she added.

Chivunga stressed that the technology of blockchain can contribute to an unprecedented improvement in the situation in the field of financial isolation.

In a world where international trade is severely criticized, Chivunga sees in the blockchain the protection from the possible devastating consequences of the global trade war.

"I think it's really important that we look at how we can use blockchain to help fund financial inclusion to help with access to digital assets that people have control over, rather than having central authorities controlling this," says Chivunga.

Increased transparency in the entire supply chain generates greater confidence and means that governments can more effectively protect consumers, and entrepreneurs can work with more reliable trade documents.

The Swiss non-profit organization World Economic Forum states that "with further investment and testing, the blockchain will be able to hide confidential information, protecting the interests of trade participants - for example, information on prices."

"Take Africa, for example, we want to encourage a lot more interregional trade," said Chivunga. "We can try and look at doing that by tapping on blockchain again because blockchain allows that opportunity for transparency and opportunities to have a more cost effective way of trading and doing business between different markets. So there's massive potential there."

It was proved that the inclusion of blockchain in trading processes reduces the time spent on completing trade finance transactions. What is now required from a week to ten days, using the technology will take only a couple of hours. At the same time, the efficiency of work is greatly increased, which will help transform not only developing but also global markets.

"A further area I see is, of course, identity," Chivunga added, "which is absolutely huge and very very important because we have a lot of problems, for example, in refugee settlement and identification, with human trafficking, modern slavery. A lot of challenges boil down to a lack of identity and people almost taking advantage of that, which leads to things like human trafficking."

According to the report of the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the Walk Free Foundation for 2017, while 14% of the population do not have identity cards, 24.9 million people are in the system of modern slavery.

"If we are able to record the births of a nation," Chivunga said, "we know how many children are born; they've got their identity that's recorded on the blockchain. They can be tracked."

Efforts to introduce blockchain in areas such as identity identification are already being undertaken by private companies and non-profit organizations. For example, in June last year Accenture and Microsoft created a platform for the identification of refugees. The prototype was presented at the UN headquarters in New York under the ID2020 program. With the support of the public and private sector, technology giants and NGOs, legal identification of people will be ensured by 2020.
