"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.

Crypto-currencies are the embodiment of economic regression

ICO-NEWS-the-embodiment-of-economic-regression Paul Krugman | American economist, Nobel laureate

American economist, Nobel laureate, as well as ardent cryptocurrency skeptic Paul Krugman once again criticized the cryptocurrency and its supporters.

Krugman, who previously called Bitcoin "evil", said that the cryptocurrencies are the embodiment of economic regression that discards the financial system for 300 years ago. According to him, in Bitcoin, he is confused by two things: transactional costs and "no binding".

As has already been noted, the history of the evolution of money is the way to unencumbered superfluous transactions complexities, which are represented today in the form of credit and debit cards, as well as other forms of digital payments.

Throughout the history of money, people have tried in every possible way to simplify transactions. At first, the natural exchange was replaced by gold and silver coins, which were heavy, demanded increased security and consumed a lot of resources for their production. Then came paper notes, which saved the financial system from most of the previous inconveniences, and greatly facilitated the process of making transactions. As a result, the world came to electronic payments, which reduced the consumption of resources in the production of money to a minimum, and transactions became instant.

Bitcoin, according to Krugman, returns this process to 300 years ago, as it reintroduces the obstacles associated with mining, which requires more and more resources.

"In other words, cryptocurrency enthusiasts are effectively celebrating the use of cutting-edge technology to set the monetary system back 300 years. Why would you want to do that? What problem does it solve? I have yet to see a clear answer to that question." - Krugman writes in his regular column for the New York Times.

Despite this, Krugman admits that governments very often abuse their privilege to issue money. However, traditional central banks cope with their tasks "quite tolerable", as they provide users with simple tools for making transactions and ensure a stable purchasing power. The base value of fiat money is set by the states, which subsequently are engaged in order to maintain their currency at the proper level.

In addition, Krugman believes that Bitcoin is a very convenient tool for engaging in criminal activities, including tax evasion.
