Token Sales

  • A snafu in the RexMLS sale burned 6700 ETH (~1.5m USD at current prices).  The Rex team: “Through a combination of personal and business accounts, we have assembled 6,687 ETH” that will go into the contract.  
  • Tim Draper’s open letter to the SEC in which he suggests grandfathering any tokens issued before the end of October 2017.

Want to be included?  If you are building your project on Ethereum, email [firstname] @ticketleap.com or send @evan_van_ness a message with 1) your URL, 2) sale date and 3) a brief description of how you are using Ethereum.  Listings are free.  But please make sure to follow those instructions.

WARNING: list may include scams.  Do your own research and due diligence before putting value at risk.  Read disclaimer below.

[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 have passed the CFA exams , but this is not investment advice. If you’re interested in what I do, you can find my somewhat out-of-date investing thesis and token sale appreciation strategies in previous newsletters.]

Newsletter housekeeping

Some time in early August, there will be an announcement that I’ve joined ConsenSys.  Here’s a logo to draw your eye in case you were going to skip over this section:


I’m very excited about this move and will have significantly more to say in the future.  The newsletters should become more regular again! In the meantime, I wanted to make it clear so that you can judge whether I favor ConsenSys projects.

My charge from Joe Lubin is pretty similar to what Status has told me: keep telling the truth and covering the space objectively, even if the truth hurts.

I like to share it, share it.  Sir Mix-A-Lot style

I measure the success of each issue by how much it gets upvoted and shared.
