六大值得关注的ICO及区块链项目

ICO指的是新型加密货币创企或项目通过售卖新发加密货币筹集资金,这种方式不受监管。创企通常采用这种方式以绕过风投家或银行严苛且受管控的筹资程序。

ICO活动中,项目发起人向其早期支持者售出一定比例的加密货币,换取法定货币或其他加密货币(ETH,即以太坊创制的货币)。

ICO活动发起前,创企通常会在一份白皮书中制定计划,陈述项目内容,项目完成后可迎合的需求,承接项目所需资金及ICO持续时常等关键信息。

ICO活动进行时,爱好者和支持者可购买此分布式代币,与公司在IPO是向投资者售卖的股份相似。

若所筹资金未达到创企最低金额要求,那么资金将会退还给支持者,此ICO被视作失败。

迄今为止,ICO带来了非凡的回报。今天我们就为大家列出了几项近期最为值得关注的ICO活动。

去中心化平台Waves筹资1600万美元

使用定制加密货币代值的去中心化平台在2016年7月的ICO中售出货币8500万,筹资29634BTC(1600万美元)。

An ICO is an unregulated means by which a new cryptocurrency venture or project can raise funds by selling newly minted crypto coins. The practice is often used by startups to bypass the rigorous and regulated capital-raising process required by venture capitalists or banks.

In an ICO campaign, a percentage of the cryptocurrency is sold to early backers of the project in exchange for legal tender or other cryptocurrencies, but usually for bitcoins or ethers (ETH), the native cryptocurrency of the Ethereum network.

Prior to launching a campaign, a startup usually creates a plan on a whitepaper which states what the project is about, what needs the project will fulfill upon completion, how much money is needed to undertake the venture, and how long the ICO campaign will run for, amongst other key information.

During the campaign, enthusiasts and supporters can buy some of the distributed tokens. Which are similar to shares of a company sold to investors in an Initial Public Offering (IPO) transaction.

If the money raised does not meet the minimum funds required by the startups, the money is returned to the backers and the ICO is deemed unsuccessful.

To date, ICOs have offered some extraordinary returns. Today, we look at some of the most noteworthy ICO campaigns that ran recently.

Decentralized platform Waves raises US$16 million

Waves, a decentralized platform which uses custom crypto tokens to represent value, raised 29,634 BTC (US$16 million) in its ICO in July 2016 in exchange for 85,000,000 coins (WAVES).

Waves is a crypto-platform for asset/custom token issuance, transfer, and trading on blockchain. Waves offers a full-scale platform for decentralized crowdfunding, community management and encrypted messaging.

Ethereum prediction market Gnosis raises US$12.5 million in less than 15 minutes

In April, Gnosis, a startup building a platform for prediction markets on Ethereum, raised 250,000 ETH (worth US$12.5 million at the time) in less than 15 minutes, giving the project a US$300 million valuation.

Gnosis has its own native cryptocurrency called WIZ. During the ICO however, investors received a token called GNO which they can choose to lock for a fixed period of time and receive WIZ tokens in exchange.

Gnosis sold 5% of its 10 million GNO tokens to investors for US$30 each, making it the most expensive digital currency offered in an initial sale, according to co-founder Martin Koppelmann.

TokenCard raises US$12.7 million in 30 minutes

Monolith Studio’s TokenCard closed its ICO earlier this week after exceeding its crowdsale goal in just half an hour.

TokenCard is a debit card usable at payment terminals around the world, including ATMs. TokenCard customers fund their own card with allowances from ERC20 compatible contract wallets.

At launch, TokenCard will allow users to fund their card with ETH and up to five other cryptocurrencies. Its underlying token, TKN, is funded by fees from the Token Card network.

Golem raises US$8.6M in less than 30 minutes

In late-2016, Golem, the first decentralized global market for computing power, raised 820,000 ETH (more than US$8.6 million) in just 29 minutes for its Golem Network Token (GNT).

Dubbed as the “Airbnb for computers,” Polish-based Golem is a peer-to-peer network that allows both application owners and individual users to rent the resources of other users’ machines, and be paid in cryptocurrency. Users are equally privileged under the network.

ChronoBank raises US$5.4M to disrupt the HR industry

ChronoBank, a project aimed at transforming the human resources and recruitment industry, raised US$5.4 million in its ICO earlier this year.

ChronoBank is building a blockchain-based recruitment platform that seeks to disrupt the industry through the use of time-based cryptocurrencies.

Development in the pipeline includes progress on ChronoBank’s smart contracts capabilities, hosted on Ethereum’s blockchain, as well as ChronoWallets for Waves and the NEM platform.

ChronoBank’s TIME token was recently added for trading on the Lykke exchange platform.

Humaniq Raises US$5.1M for financial inclusion project

In April, Humaniq, a project aimed at delivering financial services to the unbanked, raised over US$5.1 million in its ICO with over 11,600 participants and an average contribution of US$430.
