1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / When Should You Hire an ICO Marketing Agency? on: June 29, 2018, 08:11:35 AM



Many startup founders, ignited by their enthusiasm of the new crypto realm, decide to create a new blockchain project and fund it with an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) or Token Generation Event (TGEs).

These founders are often required to assemble a team and begin their project with limited or no funding. Such entrepreneurs would be (in most cases) terribly wrong to approach a Marketing company under such conditions.

Why should they wait before seeking an agency?

Many successful ICOs have raised a lot of money without the help of a Marketing agency because they have their networks, valuable skills, and can turn to freelancing sites to source people with experience for small areas where they lack knowledge. Some reputable companies, like International Blockchain Consulting, have used freelancing platforms to find high-quality people for their operations.

ParagonCoin, which raised more than 170 million USD, also used freelancers at around $30 dollars per hour for most of its day-to-day support needs. Super angels such as Fabrice Grinda use freelancers for his venture capital firm and related research projects. Even Secretary Generals of international organizations such as Interpol use freelancing sites! So, it can be a cool place to get started.

It is fine NOT to use an agency if you can properly select freelancers and create a team with limited resources, at first. A team that fits the founders culturally and professionally can do the job very well. Such a strategy can also help founders save money on labor and find people that will stick with them after their ICO hits the softcap.

If you are a bootstrapping your way to an ICO, then you probably won’t be able to afford a real ICO agency (unless you’re already very wealthy). But don’t get discouraged if you don’t have the sometimes-stellar budget required by leading ICO agencies. With the right team, culture, and sweat equity in place, many have worked miracles. If you have what it takes, you might do so as well!

So, do NOT contact an ICO marketing agency if…
 

You don’t have a proper budget (20k or 100k minimum depending on the agency).

You would be better off with internal teammates you can find online rather than through third-party companies.

You want to keep all the teammates on board after your ICO

If you have the contacts and know-how needed to raise the money yourself

 
Instead of wasting your time, and some agency’s time as well, you should work towards creating a compelling pitch of your project idea and yourself. Dig into your LinkedIn and alumni networks, turn to pitch-promising wantrepreneurs at universities, and join freelancing sites to assemble a cost-effective team that is good enough to get you started.

Agencies are built from people who produce more value together in synergy than individually. They are comprised of imperfect individuals striving for a perfect whole. That is why many agencies charge premiums, as they believe they’re offering more than any individual by themselves.

Agencies are also more required to abide by local and international laws. They have databases, networks, memberships in prestigious organizations, collective know-how that surpasses that of freelancing individuals, and setup procedures to optimize productivity and results (capitalist vaulters!). The only real issue is that they cost more!

That is the reason why bigger companies and high net-worth individuals (HNWI) who are doing ICOs usually contact agencies rather than freelancers. It saves time, guarantees higher quality, and allows usage of proprietary know-how, know-who, and tech. Also, they can rely on legal responsibilities if they want to deduct the investment expenses from their taxes, for example. All these factors make the choice of an agency more convenient for them.

So, when you should hire an ICO agency?
 

When you have the budget for a turnkey solution or a specific valuable service

When you don’t want to spend time and energy creating a separate team as you won’t need it post-ICO (some ICO team roles are temporary).

When it is convenient and easy from legal and technical standpoints

When you can benefit from the network, know-how and reputation of the agency

 
There is also a third option. You can download Telegram and join any open groups where you can ask for ICO services. This will result in hundreds of offers coming your way from entities that are half agencies, half freelancers, or some percentage of the two combined. Close your eyes, give it some thought and choose the ones that you think are best. This might be a question of luck! Beware of Telegram offers, however, as half of them (especially the YouTube reviews) are probably scams!

4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Vision for the Blockchain Economy of the New Century on: June 06, 2018, 08:04:53 AM


Blockchain creates an economy based on the individual vis-à-vis organizations. Take the example of a project we manage, ArtChain AI. Their founders want to put together a system of tokens that galleries and artists can use to trade their stuff. Once an art piece enters their platform it automatically becomes a value on the ArtChain network, supporting the value of its tokens, as some paintings would only be available on their blockchain.
In a far away century, let’s say the 25th century, when all different art blockchain networks integrate, every artwork is contained in the blockchain, and there are almost no black or grey markets, the only way to profit from artwork will be to provide value to the ecosystem as an artist or gallery (let’s simplify it).
Once someone earns ArtCoins they will want to make a living from it, and they will be able to trade their ArtsCoins for USDT to buy food, for example. Given that he wants to get the food delivered to his home, he can also exchange ArtsCoin for DeliveroCoins and voilà: his earnings are transferred to other blockchain networks and he gets real-world stuff he can seize and enjoy.

All networks are always in balance, supply and demand are instantly adjusted, perhaps even on a global level. Market externalities and arbitrages are negligible.

Once the private sector and national governments enter the blockchain system, it is reasonable to expect that stock markets would also follow suit. The Australian Stock Market is already on the blockchain, for example. Having them onboard will arguably make it easier, technologically and otherwise, for blockchain to create an integrated global capital market.

Libertarian revolutionaries seem like creating Karl Marx’s dream a reality! Karl Marx… but isn’t this a libertarian revolution led by shirtless dorks like Pavel Durov who challenge Putin to a reality TV showdown? NO, DUMMIES!

Every founder gets a limited number of tokens that they own. With time, as their bodies deteriorate, and they get older (despite the gym Pavel, sorry!) they will have to spend those tokens, as they get no salaries after the initial fiat funds are spent. The growth of their tokens value will be slower than their price appreciation as visible today. After a few generations, there would be no accumulation of wealth as all initial founders’ tokens would be spent!

Hence, blockchainers around the world are creating a libertarian socialist kingdom! A place where there would be no place for extra profit from the labors of others (in most cases). Without ownership of assets backing most token/coin networks, it is safe to assume that this can become a reality!
But wouldn’t Apple’s shareholders still dominate and transfer the wealth to their brats? Perhaps. But consider the following:
1. Companies that are based on profit yielding shares are not sharing them with their consumers.
2. Companies that are based on token networks do share the benefits of profit (and, or) network growth with their consumers.

And based on the above, here is something as a food for thought:

CAPITALISM
Extra profit from the labor of others. Profits are transferred to investors and management who push employees to make bigger profits. Consumers have no benefits but large investment in marketing. Hence, Microsoft overtakes Linux despite being crappier at the time, more prone to viruses and less stabile in general. The masses rewarded marketing over quality! Microsoft is powerful and reinvests the profit of others (employees) in bran-washing the future generations and creating closed systems. (they buy GitHub…)

LIBERTARIAN SOCIALISM
​No extra profit from the labor of others is generated in the long-run. Profit if there is any, is usually distributed among consumers. Lack of incentive to exploit others hinders short-term investment in marketing. Hence, Linux overtakes Microsoft for the segments that matter. In the long run as smarter people use it (Android) who eventually have more power because of their IQ and values, Mars would definitely have Linux over Microsoft. Less in number but better.
The blockchain revolution is a libertarian socialist one and it is fit for a smaller but chosen group of people who are qualitatively better.

7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / An Overview of MOS Incentive Programs on: April 18, 2018, 12:59:03 PM




The best product, game, or service ever invented will not achieve profitability if no one knows about it.

That is why, like many other businesses and lottery programs before us, MOS has created a unique incentive program for those who love the idea of a completely transparent blockchain lottery.

Our goal is simple: to build our community by encouraging people like you to refer potential investors. When an investor purchases MOS tokens, then we reward you with free MOS tokens.

Our bounty pool for our incentive program is limited to 500 million MOS tokens. Once the limit has been reached, then unfortunately we cannot pay a reward for future referrals afterward.

We have also set the maximum eligible reward at 1 million MOS tokens to ensure everyone who is passionate about our platform can get involved.

What Rewards Can I Earn from the MOS Incentive Program?

We offer three tiers of rewards for those who refer investors to join our community. There are minimum MOS token purchases required for a free reward bonus to be issued.

· A referred investor purchase of 10,000 MOS tokens minimum offers a bonus of 500 MOS tokens to the referrer.

· A referred investor who purchases 100,000 MOS tokens minimum will create a bonus of 5,000 MOS tokens to the referrer.

· A referred investment of 1 million MOS tokens generates a bonus of 50,000 MOS tokens to the referrer.

For referrers to qualify for this bounty program, you must sign up, then login, to the MOS ITS. Your dashboard will then display your personalized referral link. You are welcome to share it throughout your digital network: social media, email, chat, and more.

If someone clicks on the shared link, they will be directed to our main landing page. Their link will be tracked to your account. Any bonus tokens earned are immediately and automatically credited to your wallet once the referred investor completes their purchase.

Why Encourage an Investment into MOS Tokens?

MOS tokens are more than a gateway to a fun stock market lottery. They are also a chance to earn profit. All MOS token investors are entitled to their proportional share of 15% of the monthly gross profit from the lottery.

All sales and payouts are recorded on the Ethereum blockchain, making them a public record. The smart contract will automatically determine the gross profit and credit rewards to token holders automatically.

MOS tokens must be parked in our wallet to be eligible for this distribution.

By creating this rewarding format, we envision a strong demand for MOS tokens in the future as more investors realize the full potential of this platform.

Investors benefit in two ways: with increased pricing of the MOS tokens and their monthly proportional share of platform gross profits.

We are creating a platform with a fixed supply and an anticipated increase in demand. Our early investors may see the biggest rewards, but there is still time to get involved. As long as there are still referral bonuses available, there will be opportunities to grow your investment and have fun.

That’s why MOS has one of the most exciting incentive programs in our industry today.

9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / TRANSPARENT AND EASILY VERIFIABLE NUMBER SELECTION SYSTEM CHOSEN BY MOS on: April 06, 2018, 04:57:12 PM




MOS is pleased to announce that their upcoming blockchain-based lottery platform will utilize numbers derived from global stock markets to create fully transparent winning results.



What makes MOS different from other lottery platforms with a similar structure is how winning numbers are chosen. Competitors use systems, such as random number generation or hashes, to generate results. Even if the code for these systems is fully accessible and understood by players, the casual player with no understanding of blockchain technologies will not be able to play with full knowledge.



MOS has chosen stock market indices because it creates a global playing experience over different time zones, allowing for gameplay to occur throughout the day. This structure replicates the all-day play offered by other blockchain lottery platforms without compromising the absolute transparency of the MOS platform.

Stock markets from the United States, London, and China, amongst others, have been chosen to be the foundation of the number selection system.



This design is intended to allow casual players with basic crypto knowledge to get involved with the MOS lottery platform. At the same time, churn rates are reduced because there are numerous ways to play and be engaged.



It also creates odds for players that are anticipated to be as low as 1:10 for those who play the 1-digit game that will be available on the MOS lottery platform when it goes live in June 2018.



By using this structure, it eliminates the need to understand hashes or the coding behind a random number generator to understand full transparency. MOS anticipates that all bet results will be available about 5 minutes after a stock market closes. The index value will be communicated via APIs.



Winners will receive instant payments from MOS in their Ethereum wallet after the results are complete.



Investors are invited to explore the MOS stock market lottery platform to see the simplicity of its design. Pre-ICO sales of MOS tokens are currently available with investor registration and are the only way to play on this platform.



MOS tokens will be listed on major cryptocurrency trading platforms when the lottery goes live.



MOS is the next innovative step for online entertainment. It combines elements of a stock market and elements of a lottery together to create an incomparable online product called the Stock Market Lottery. It is based on zero-fraud blockchain technologies that offer the thrills of daily trading and the hope of achieving a life-changing windfall from a minimal investment.

10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / How MOS Created a Different Blockchain Lottery Program on: March 27, 2018, 05:02:09 PM


A simple search on your preferred search engine will provide you with numerous blockchain lottery listings.

Kibo Partners, Fire Lotto, SmartBillions, and others are all joining MOS in pioneering a new gaming experience for people utilizing the world of crypto. Each takes its own unique approach to the gaming experience, but there are some processes that they have in common.

· Many of the blockchain lotteries are structured to provide winning numbers based on future block hashes or random number generators.

· We all utilize a smart contract-based platform that is based off Ethereum, then utilize tickets or tokens to represent gaming opportunities.

· Multiple game options are offered to entice casual internet users, crypto experts, and an anonymous, but global community of players.

Our investing structures are also quite similar.

Blockchain lotteries offer a pre-sale where tickets or tokens are sold at prices that are fixed and low. This begins the prize pool generation process. Over time, the goal is to have the price of those tickets or tokens to increase because they can be traded as a commodity, just like any other cryptocurrency.

Every single blockchain states that they have the most transparent system in place. Yet, at MOS, we feel like no one takes transparency more seriously than us. That is how we are different.

Why Transparency Matters for a Blockchain Lottery

We believe transparency matters because players deserve to have clear, honest information about how their gaming numbers are generated.

At Fire Lotto, a random number generator is used. Players are permitted to inspect the code used for the generator at their convenience.

SmartBillions uses the hashes of the third future block to generate their bet results.

Kibo Partners simply says that the gambling rules and conditions are “hard-wired into the architecture” of their open-source smart contracts.

At MOS, we searched for a better way to encourage transparency, while still keeping the lottery aspect to the gaming process. That’s how we developed the idea of the “stock market lottery.”

Our bet results are based on the closing indices of the stock markets. The closing indices are sent to the blockchains via APIs with results that are easy to verify.

Check any news site or the index itself to verify that the numbers issued are correct.

Here’s an example. Let’s say that the Dow Jones Industrial Average closes at 24,852.39. Now let’s say that the NASDAQ Composite closes at 6,838.72. You would instantly know the results, based on the game you played.

1-Digit Game: 9

2-Digit Game: 39

4-Digit Game: 3972, etc

Once the supplying index value is appropriately communicated, like any other blockchain lottery, instant payouts occur to the player’s wallet.

At MOS, we want you to have access to a lottery game that is truly transparent and fun to play. This structure allows us to appeal to anyone from any background because it is easy to understand.

Our platform is secure. Game play is anonymous. Our bet results are the only option that can be independently verified in just seconds by anyone.

That is how MOS has created a different, and we would say better, blockchain lottery platform for you to enjoy.

14  Economy / Economics / Blockchain — A Libertarian Socialist Revolution on: March 09, 2018, 03:04:44 AM
What makes blockchain uniquely different than other conventional companies is not the fact the most blockchain platforms have limited supply of their tokens. Gold has a similarly limited supply today and yet capitalism persists, while communist regimes have reverted to fiat currencies and that did not make them capitalist. Instead, what makes blockchain companies unique is the fact that most crypto assets that dominate the blockchain exchanges (with minor exceptions) do not know conventional profit from the labor of others as a category. Therefore, it is my assumption that Karl Marx and many of his peers would have loved the blockchain!

Initial coin offerings (ICOs) are usually done by an emission of digital tokens via coded and uploaded to be seen, smart contracts. Like bonds without interest or shares without profit yield, these tokens usually appreciate in value as the adopters of the specific token raise in number. Thus, the networking effect is the principal reason for growing the value of most digital crypto assets. For instance, the more people buy Bitcoins, the greater their value would be — and so is the case with most other crypto assets.

Tokens can be best understood as small economies connected on blockchain exchanges. To illustrate this, we can take a small example. For instance, someone can make a token for storing car data in a distributed blockchain database, like CarData (www.cardata.am) tries to do, token economy for identity verification, like Civic (www.civic.com), or for access to a lottery platform that draws the winning numbers from NASDAQ like MOS (www.moscoin.io) or as a transaction tool and keeper of value Bitcoin itself. Many things can be organized in decentralized economies based on tokens.

People holding different tokens from different token economies can trade them on exchanges. For instance, if someone needs to use medical data from a medical blockchain, she or he can use Bitcoins to buy MedicalChain tokens and access the service. If a bank or a university needs to verify an identity online, they might use Tezos tokens (called Tezzies) to buy Civic tokens and do the identity validation, etc. As you can see, there is no conventional profit made in the economy but the networking effect or how many people use it, which is connected to the utility and code of each token, determines its price. Everyone earns from their labor!

When someone launches an initial coin offering, he or she usually divides the tokens to team members, advisers, investors, and supporters. The appreciation of the value of tokens is something that leads to “capital gains” for everyone who contributed towards the project. Once the entire world accepts the blockchain economy and no more network effects exist because no new people enter the token economy, the price of these digital assets should stabilize. Then, everyone would be rewarded the proportional value that they have created for others, not necessarily with profits from ownership of assets (given there will be no more excessive “capital gains”).
Profit seems like a dirty word in crypto-land today. From 100 random ICOs, we analyzed, only 13 had some form of profit sharing function. But, even when they share profits, these start-ups seem more generous than their counterparts from the conventional, old economy. For instance, start-ups like MagnumLink (www.magnumlink.com) that is issuing tokens backed by precious minerals such as diamonds and gold, want to share at least 50% of profits with its investors while giving away 100% of tokens away during the ICO.

So, if the new blockchain companies in most of the cases become foundations (Ethereum, Tezos, etc.) that create no profits, and people earn as much value as they create for others, does that look like Socialism? Perhaps it looks like a libertarian type of socialism created by the private sector, but it is socialism, nevertheless.

16  Local / Servicios / Initial Coin Offering (ICO) - si desea llevar a cabo una ICO, lea esto primero on: March 06, 2018, 01:03:33 AM
Puntos claves



1. Los buenos fundadores llevan a cabo grandes ICOs y siempre encuentran un camino hacia capital

2. TODAS las ICO exitosas tienen fondos suficientes para tecnología y marketing

3. Hay 6 elementos en el ICO-marketing que no se pueden evitar para tener éxito

Muchos fundadores talentosos piensan en Initial Coin Offerings y proyectos que pueden avanzar la civilización y traer grandes ganancias, pero muchas veces no saben por dónde empezar. En TSM hemos preparado una pequeña guía en una presentación de Prezi que debe enseñar a los fundadores cosas básicas sobre las ICOs y lo que requieren para ser ejecutadas adecuadamente. Aunque hablamos en nuestra presentación sobre un mínimo requisito de $250,000 para llevar a cabo una ICO, generalmente fundadores comienzan con mucho menos y recaudan dinero en reuniones privadas (cuando presentan a inversores privados su ICO) mientras también trabajan para recaudar el capital necesario.

De todas formas, sin tener en cuenta la situación de fondos disponibles, los buenos fundadores siempre encuentran una manera de recaudar fondos suficientes para desarrollar la plataforma y pagar por servicios de marketing de alta calidad. Al otro lado, los fundadores malos simplemente encuentran excusas para su fracaso, no tienen una idea clara desde el principio y simplemente renuncian cuando aparecen los primeros problemas. Esto ha sido la regla general hasta ahora.

TSM Global, una empresa de servicios de Blockchain y marketing registrada en Londres, Reino Unido, ha trabajado en ICOs durante mucho tiempo y estuvo presente cuando todo el mercado fue valorado $20 mil millones hasta su valoración de casi $1 billón en enero 2018, cuando la valoración se corrigió. Sin embargo, la capacidad de TSM para recaudar fondos no se ha visto afectado a pesar de la agitación del mercado. Hasta ahora, TSM ha ayudado a empresas a recaudar más de $270 millones, independientemente de los altibajos del mercado.

Cuando los fundadores aportan suficiente capital para pagar los servicios de marketing, los inversores de la comunidad se convencen más fácilmente del poder y la calidad de sus intenciones y, por lo general, invierten las cantidades requeridas para alcanzar el límite mínimo (el límite de recaudación de fondos). ¡El problema es que demasiadas ICOs esperan que los inversores aparezcan mágicamente y les den el dinero sin invertir un centavo en media, relaciones públicas y esfuerzos de publicidad! Esos fundadores siempre fracasan.

Para ayudar a los posibles desarrolladores de Blockchain, TSM decidió facilitar y enseñar a los fundadores de ICO los esfuerzos de marketing necesarios y el capital requerido para cada una de esas actividades. Por tanto, hemos creado paquetes de servicios de soporte individual para ICOs que se pueden separar en seis partes principales:

1. Gestión comunitaria, utilizando redes establecidas y respuestas a consultas

2. Desarrollo de sitio web y plataforma para estar sincronizado con la estrategia de marketing

3. Relaciones públicas y presentación en medios populares como Forbes y HuffPost

4. Diseño de contenido y producción de videos antes y durante del ICO

5. Gestión publicitaria y de la comunidad criptográfico

6. Desarrollo y ejecución de la estrategia de referencia para encontrar los socios adecuados

TSM publicó sus precios para que los fundadores puedan planificar su presupuesto y seleccionar lo que necesitan para su ICO. En comparación con otras agencias de ICO marketing, que llevan más años en el mercado, como www.icobox.io, y cobran 10 veces más que nosotros para sus servicios debido a su experiencia en el mercado, nuestro objetivo es ser mejor que estas empresas, como SpaceX en comparación con Boing o Bitcoin en comparación a los bancos. Nuestro objetivo es cobrar las mismas tarifas por los mismos servicios de alta calidad a largo plazo.

Dado que muchos fundadores se preocuparon por la corrección del mercado desde el inicio de 2018, TSM decidió extender sus descuentos adicionales en sus servicios de marketing de Blockchain hasta finales de marzo de 2018.

      18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Why and How to do an ICO? on: February 19, 2018, 10:18:51 PM


      MOTIVATION

      In ICOs, like other businesses, the main motivation should be solving a real issue as opposed to just making money. If you don’t have a problem to solve, you don’t have a business to build! There are many examples of problems that the blockchain community is solving with innovative ICO projects. A company can engage in an ICO that allows borderless credits at lower rates in developing countries. Another example is an ICO that increases security of information or efficiency in their transmission. ICOs can also be for the finer things of life, like allowing better matching of couples based on genetic data or allowing the rich and famous more ways to enjoy life anonymously.

      What do you need for a successful ICO?

      At least $250,000 for a good ICO
      Good connections with the target community
      Quality people on your team
      Long term strategy

      What can you compensate it with?

      You need to motivate people with sweat equity
      You can build good connections in three to four months
      You can maintain an organization that will continue developing the project after you are gone

      Alternatives to ICOs

      The fact of the matter is that the flexibility, enthusiasm and opportunities that ICOs represent are difficult to match with any kind of alternatives.  The returns on the invested time and capital compared to the raised amounts of money are unmatched by any other funding source today.


      HOW TO DO AN ICO

      Be sure to solve the technical problem before the ICO starts!
      Be sure to have a good and professional policy for hiring the right people and agencies – ensure contracts are signed with all partners
      Make sure your company is incorporated in a location where you won’t have legal problems

      image post

      MARKETING KNOW-HOW

      Always be transparent and truthful to potential investors – act like the SEC is involved and Interpol is watching.  You also need to provide the investors with the level of quality they deserve.

      Whitepaper

      ICOs are the only available business area where a simple whitepaper can get you millions.  However, it is also limited to members of a relatively small community. The trick is to also attract people outside the blockchain community.
      How do you go about this?

      Prepare a crypto pitch desk for VCs and angels. Make the onboarding easy by preparing videos and tips
      Prepare an ICO investment prospectus for institutional investors and show them examples of ROI
      Do your kliken-putzen and visit every wealthy individual you know with customized stories

      capture screen

      Bounty Campaign

       The bounty campaign is a set or rewards that companies give to make people continuously contribute time or connections to the ICO.  These bounty campaigns will yield best results if they are customized.  No two ICOs are the same and the bounty campaign needs to vary accordingly.  The average contributions range from $120 to $1,100.  That means that the majority of investments are relatively small.   Do you want to follow the crowd as well and aim as small-scale investors?

      For instance, if you standardize rewards for twitter retweets depending on the number of followers the people have, you would miss an important variable. Around 1,000 artificial followers on twitter can be bought for as little as $7 so you might be wasting a part of your bounty budget to reward people who bring absolute no value to you. However there is a way, a semi-automatic one to qualify bounty participants and make sure they bring value to you.

       Simplicity

       Although ICOs started as a product of technically savvy visionaries, most members of the community and big investors are not into the technical details of projects.  The way projects are presented should be tailored to the founders’ target audience.

       You can send your Whitepaper or pitch deck to a person who can give constructive criticism or even send a courteous and professional email to people you do not know but whom you can get feedback from.  These are the people you would like to have as advisers or promoters of your ICO.

       The simpler your business model and slogan is, the easier it would be for the investors to understand.  If you are not a marketing expert with a high dose of implicit empathy, you would need to get feedback from others to achieve this.



      AWARENESS

      It is part of TSM Global’s initiative to educate the public on cryptocurrencies and ICOs. We would like to provide correct and comprehensive understanding of ICOs and cryptocurrencies to help give the public the tools needed to make informed decisions on their investments. It would include educational tools in a variety of areas, including protection from scams and wallet security.



      What are your thoughts about this? Your feedback and suggestions are encouraged.
