What is an ICO? (Initial Coin Offering)
An initial coin offering (ICO) is a type of funding using cryptocurrencies. The process is mostly done by crowdfunding, and private ICO’s are becoming more common as well. In an ICO, a quantity of cryptocurrency is sold in the form of “tokens” (“coins”) to speculators or investors, in exchange for legal tender or other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum. The tokens sold are promoted as future functional units of currency if or when the ICO’s funding goal is met and the project launches. Just this year in the first two quarters, a record $7 billion was raised via ICO from January–June 2018.
How to launch an ICO
Before launching an ICO, which is rather an expensive and time-consuming process, we must first decide if launching your ICO is advisable. Like all entrepreneurial products, your project must offer a solution to the problem in the cryptocurrency market. Since there are only 1,500 cryptocurrencies in the marketplace, your coin must have a high demand if it is going to get any traction. It is essential that your project also has an integrated cryptocurrency system that uses your coin in a meaningful way.
Launching an ICO
Taking your concept and Whitepaper and turning it into an actual product is the most important step before you launch an ICO. Your product must be expandable on Blockchain as well as your product must use your token. Creating the token is an easier step because we help create the technical architecture that supports your project.
Next, distributing the amount of blockchain or Ethereum coin either in the main ICO or in Pre/Main-ICO period can influence the demand and value of your coin. Writing a Whitepaper is another crucial step in the launching of an ICO because it explains your project in every possible detail. This includes all the problems it intends to solve, a market analysis of the product, the development strategy, legal issues, and distribution policy.
The last few steps of launching an ICO includes creating awareness for your product and getting it out on exchanges. Creating a community around your project will establish a loyal fan base while also sharing your product with others. Finally, getting your ICO on Bitcoin exchanges including finding the strongest and longest lasting exchange is crucial.
