Monetha has raised 95.000ETH (36,6 million dollars) in just 18 minutes! Investors not happy for not being able to invest.
I've been waiting for the Monetha ICO for a while now and have tried to buy MTH today when it started. I couldn't finish the process since at first I kept receiving a registration error message in which I was asked to contact the Monetha team. After about five minutes I finally did it and initiated the transaction. Seven hours later my transaction is still pending and the ETH is in my wallet, which means I didn't manage to buy MTH.
Looking over the internet I found a lot of other investors that are in my situation and that are commenting about whales that had the chance to buy before the ICO start time and also that were not very happy with the buying procedure.
Even if I didn't manage to buy, I must admit that i really appreciated the pre-ICO communication and transparency and that the team behind this project deserves congratulations for such a success.
Cryptocurrency is now in the spotlight and this is easy understandable. As more and more cash (fiat) is pumped into the market and huge profits are often made overnight, you are probably wondering how you can reverse the Bitcoin/Ethereum investment back into USD/EUR/GBP. Fortunately, there are a few good and fast solutions to do that:
Mainly the same as Kraken, Bitstamp is an exchange that also allows you to exchange Bitcoin into fiat and then transfer it to your bank account.
Gemini is a fully regulated, fully compliant, New York-based digital asset exchange for both individuals and institutions. It allows you to exchange Bitcoin or Ethereum into USD.
Bitpanda is Europe's most popular service to buy and sell bitcoin and Ethereum. It allows you to buy Bitcoin and Ethereum with your credit card and also sell Bitcoin instantly to your bank account.
If you are in a hurry and wish to trade fast, you can visit Localbitcoins.com. It allows you to trade bitcoins in 15147 cities and 248 countries. You just enter your location and it will show you people around you that are interested in buying Bitcoin instantly in the exchange of cash.
Very promising future projects
TenX, Monaco and BitPay are companies that are now trying to implement credit cards that are linked to your cryptocurrency wallets, so you can use them to pay directly to the corner store. Another project that is actually my favorite is Revolut. They have a brilliant mobile app and have lately stated they will soon introduce Bitcoin exchange in the app.
Hope you found this information useful. If you happen to also know other Bitcoin-fiat options, feel free to share them in the comments.
Yesterday Bitcoin reached an all-time high value of $4580, getting closer and closer to the $5000 value. Looking back, Bitcoin seems unstoppable, as yesterday's value was double than the one it had on July 20th. If we take it this way, the $5000 value for a Bitcoin is not very far away considering that yesterday it gained over $200 in just two hours.
Despite the continuous evolution of altcoins, Bitcoin seems to remain the safest long-term cryptocurrency investment, with a stable growth and a low volatility level.
If you invested $50 in BITCOIN on 2011-01-01, you would have made 1,433,234% ROI, that's $716,617 in profit.
Bitcoin is now (29th of Aug 2017) worth 4368 USD. However, it wasn't always like that. If you are still hesitant wether to invest or not in crypto, then this website will help you take a decision faster. It's simple: you fill the amount (USD) and date and it will calculate how much profit (%) and money you would have had today. In other words, it will show you how much money you lost because you didn't invest. Just visit whatifbitcoin.com/
Keeps you thinking, right?
Their ICO will be launched today at 1:00 PM (UTC) and their goal is to raise 50.000 ETH, which at this minute's ETH value means 17.600.000 USD.
KICKICO wants to be the blockchain platform for ICO, crowdfunding and crowdinvesting on smart-contracts. So, in other words, they want to be for crypto what Kickstarter is for USD. I personally like their idea, as I believe they will empower all the smart, but not very financially empowered people that have some brilliant ideas, but do not have the money to develop a full-featured ICO.
As this idea is combibing the success of crowdfunding with the success of blockchain, I see great potential and, what is most important, I see the utility of the idea. Lately there are a lot of ICOs and unfortunately I consider most of them are either useless, scams or have no realistic goal (fantastic ideas, but very hard to achieve).
As for their token (KickCoin KC), it looks like a promising long-term investment, as it will have a utility and doesn't seem to be just another uselesscoin. The ICO parity will be 1 ETH = 3000 KC.
Hope this was helpful and not time-consuming to read. Any feedback will be appreciated, so please use the comment section. Till next time, happy investing!
A while ago a friend of mine told me about an ICO that helped him multiply his investment x6 in just three days. As this sounded too good to be true, I was very interested to find out more information, and that was the beginning of my new passion - the cryptocurrency world, ICO analisys and cryptocurrency trading.
OK, so what exactly is an ICO?
An ICO (Initial Coin Offering) is, like an IPO, a fundraising means in which a company attracts investors, but with a crypto twist and (for now) without most of the regulations that an IPO must comply with. During the ICO the company is releasing its own digital currency and usually it sells it for Bitcoin, Ethereum or USD.
