Token Sales

  • I listened to an Andreas Antonopoulos podcast this week about Ethereum token sales, and it was shocking how little he knew about the events he was pontificating on.  45 minutes of getting things factually incorrect.  It was so bad I won’t even link to it.
  • It appears that Blockchain Capital raised just $180k USD from the Ethereum community
  • EthBits has raised about 300k USD so far, Lunyr 700k, Humaniq says 1.6m (tough to verify)
  • Gilles Fedak on Epicenter
  • Gnosis commits to just 10% tokens for founders
    • It’s fantastic that they’re innovating on token sale structures and ignoring the small but vocal crowd of haters.
  • Daniel Zakrisson: Building a crowdsale evaluation process

Bias transparency: if you host a blockchain conference and don’t use Ticketleap, I’m much less likely to include your conference, unless you have a good reason as to why we’re not a good fit.  But I doubt there is one, because we’re likely a great fit.  /shamelessplug

[I aim for a relatively comprehensive list of Ethereum sales, but make no warranty as to even whether they are legit; as such, I thus likewise warrant nothing about whether any will produce a satisfactory return. I may have passed the CFA exams, but this is not investment advice. If you’re interested in what I do, you can find my investing thesis and token sale appreciation strategies in previous newsletters.]
