The ICO project in one paragraph: Mingo is first and foremost a learning platform. It is the gateway app for non-crypto users to join the crypto community. This is done through giving users a familiar and comfortable tool in MingoMessenger, which is a multi-channel messenger. This messenger is the discovery, sharing and transaction layer of Mingo. Every user is automatically given a MingoWallet, which is a simplified and gamified learning environment that teaches new users principle upon principle the intricacies of cryptocurrency through a rewards-based achievement tree. MingoCoin is both a reward for progress in the achievement tree and a mechanism for sending value to and receiving value from other Mingo users.
What makes Mingo different: I like the idea that Mingo is tackling the challenge of bringing new users into the crypto space. Mingo welcomes new utility solutions in other projects and may even become the gateway for other projects to acquire and train a growing market.
