Token Sales


Dates of note

[For ongoing sales, check previous week]

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 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.]

Come say hello at Token Summit

I’ll be at Token Summit, wearing jeans and a purple polo. Come say hi!
