Whats the difference? I have been asked this question a few times.
Well, first of the name IPO refers to a stock marketing company reaching a public buy n point., Usually far past all the venture captalists and angel investors. Its ually already evaluated at a multi million dollar company and regulated heavily via the SEC and FCC.
ICO, or Initial coin offerings are more like crowd funding for these new crypto currencies and digital assets. They provide you the opportunity to enter as a small investor where normally the big boys have already flown in and taken over. Due to the nature of smart contracts as well, you have an equal chance of getting in on these at the ground floor. The possibility to make X,XXX% returns. Dont get us wrong, this is still extremely risky, and you are liable to get burned if you dont do your homework, research and extensive research. That being said. WE will be releasing our top picks in August as we have more of a platform and voice to do so!
Investing into PPT and Populous or Veritaseum would have been a great idea, but we were to slow. Nor did we have the intelligence to do so. Now we have done it a few times, we feel comfortable getting in and making it happen!
