41  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: 🔴HADRON🔴⠀WEB⠀BROWSER⠀AI⠀MINING🔴 Mining⠀started,⠀apply⠀now,⠀AIRDRP⠀bount🔴 on: January 19, 2018, 02:56:17 PM
As anyone received the email for Alpha testing yet? it states the first wave was due to start on the 15th but I dont see anyone who is actually mining Hadron yet??

Some info from the devs would be greatly appreciated Smiley


A few of us have started alpha mining. Its been a good experience so far. So alpha mining did indeed begin on January 15, as they stated.
You should join the telegram maybe.

Would be nice if you can give some info regarding what hardware is helping you generate how many coins Cheesy

Because the product in the Alpha stages the rate of coin production changes regularly. Not only this, but the amount of people contributing power to the network changes regularly too.

As a result, knowing what the rate of coin production will be per hardware specs won't happen for a few more weeks, as the team are focused on scaling the product competently and making sure that, when they open places for Alpha testing, it goes smoothly for everyone involved and isn't too taxing on your computer.

But don't worry, they're working hard on fixing bugs so that they can quickly add new applicants to the Alpha testing

For those who are interested to know, the mining is seamless and undemanding. For anybody who has never mind before but can manage to navigate to Facebook, this is more than doable.

What's more, the sheer fact that you're not just aimlessly committing high-end computing power to secure a network, but instead you're running neural networks to power advanced AI, really hits home when you see the output of the neural network being run. It's like automated pastiche poetry.

Not only this, but when you log onto your dashboard you can spend the coins immediately on a few products: classify an image, determine if an image is SFW and donate to medical research.

It just stops me in my tracks everytime I think of how well-run this ICO is. Alpha testing done by the community? And Beta? A product to release and use before a token sale? Services that can be availed of with the token before it even hits the exchages? These were all things I accepted would never be in place for an ICO, but Hadron changed that. You have never seen an ICO like this and you may not for the rest of the year.

Welcome to the community. Bring all your friends to the party.

Was that a question or a statement?
44  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Hadron Cloud pre-ICO, Airdrop and Alpha Testing on: January 15, 2018, 04:38:11 PM
i'm looking forward to HADRON. I think is has some great potential.
Only time will tell. Beta mining opens on the 15th Jan.

I think it might just be the Alpha mining that opens up on the 15th (today). Beta testing won't come for at least a few weeks I imagine, although I expect the Beta will be released in and around the time of their ICO, as they seem focused on having a working product available for their targeted customers
45  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Best ICO for January 2018 on: January 12, 2018, 02:30:21 PM
Possibly the best ICO to get involved in now (pre-ICO is coming within a month or so I believe) is Hadron.

I've written a very thorough post on why I think Hadron has huge potential. You shold take a look at their team (hailing from Silicon Valley and graduating from distinguished colleges like Stanford and Berkeley) and their advisory board (working on projects like Bee Token and Quantstamp and companies like Tesla and Google)

I'll leave the link below, but I implore you all to have a look and join their Telegram at the least
46  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Are you picky with ICOs? on: January 12, 2018, 02:21:16 PM
I avoid those get rich quick scams. Rather buy little bit more established coins with some growth potential. I bet 85-95% of these ICO projects will be dead after one year

Depends on your analysis and assessments. Unless you are just new to crypto? If you kept saying 85-95% of ICO projects are dead after 1 year since few years ago then you must be missing too many opportunities then.

I agree, it does depend. The growth rates for ICOs is very high, so far. No one knows what the future will bring, but everyone should do their research!
yes of course because I want to earn a lot of income, if I am not careful in choosing ico then the effort I did wasted. a good bounty would be very profitable.

I am incredibly picky with my ICOs. I want something that's going to go the length and give fantastic returns.

I actually wrote such a f***ing lengthy post on how I pick ICOs, but I'd still appreciate any input or different methods into picking a winning ICO. I've done well in the past, but that doesn't mean that my method will be foolproof in the future, so really, any input would be appreciated

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2730548.msg27949877#msg27949877

EDIT: THERE'S A LOT GETTING LOST IN THE NOISE, SO I'M SORRY FOR THIS.

HADRON CLOUD
As I said, very sorry about that.
47  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Hadron Cloud pre-ICO, Airdrop and Alpha Testing on: January 12, 2018, 12:34:32 PM
Etn project is also developing mobile mining and stuff, i think project will succeed if it has good value on exchange otherwise no one will want to mine it.

Thank you for your input. I imagine there will be more and more projects utilizing mobile mining in the future.

The difference with Hadron is that you're not aimlessly committing computational power just to secure the network. Instead you're running a neural network which will be used to power advanced AI. Other businesses and projects will pay for the use of the advanced AI through the Hadron token, which is what you're compensated with for running the neural network.

In the future the advanced AI at Hadron's disposal, powered by billions of people worldwide, might be used in radiology imagery to find the cure for cancer. The applications for highly capable and seamlessly powered AI in the future are probably broader than we'll be able to appreciate over the next few years.

The proportional mining rewards also make the mobile mining very attractive and creates a low barrier of entry for everyone.

How do you think AI such as this should be used in the future? What other applications do you see possible?
48  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Hadron Cloud pre-ICO, Airdrop and Alpha Testing on: January 12, 2018, 11:40:52 AM
This was excellent! Enjoyed reading it.

Thank you very much. What are your opinions on Hadron?

Thanks for clueing us on this. Looks like I made it just in time

You couldn't be more right my friend. Have you applied for the Alpha testing and the airdrop>

I just checked your trust level and found that you are promoting a ponzi project, what will make this one a different case, because there are few examples of projects with exit scam, pump and dump the developers tokens on the market

Hahahahaha yes, I did ask too many enthusiastic questions about a project that was quite obviously a ponzi/HYIP and a few days after my post was removed and I received negative feedback, I was burned by the project. I wish they kept the link so people could see exactly what I did.

In terms of Hadron I'd ask you not to believe me, but to do your own research. Join the Telegram, ask questions there, engage with the project. Whether I have -10 or +10 feedback, you should always check it out yourself just to make sure that you're comfortable with investing in it.

One of the best cases for knowing it's not a P'n'D/exit scam is checking to see if the team/project has a working product. In Hadron's case, they do.
49  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Promising Altcoins With Less Than (or around) 10 Millino $ MCAP on: January 12, 2018, 03:21:48 AM
So here's the MCAP of the tokens I mentioned.

1. LIFE. 47 millino $

2. Evergreen Coin. 8 millino $

3. Solaris. 41 millino $

4. ZClassic. 496 millino $ (well that was a hit)

5. Hawala.Today. 7 millino $ (another big hit)

For the record, I still think XLR has room to grow.

Below I'm going to leave a link that gives information on what I believe will be the biggest ICO of the year. Please, DYOR. But please take a look so that you can decide for yourself.

I've just written this in a thread titled "How To Know Good ICO", or something like that.

Let me know what you think. Any pointers or questions would be appreciated.

TL;DR

How do you pick a good ICO?

By picking this one: https://hadron.cloud/; https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2142232.0; https://t.me/joinchat/GahFuELlfJoWE1vsFQf3VQ.
Sign up for the airdrop, apply for the Alpha testing and follow their progress.
You're welcome.

---------------

I see a lot of people here telling others to check websites that rate ICOs, but let me put something to you guys: how do you think those websites decide what ICOs to rate appropriately?

Well, some of the websites will list an ICO in a particular place or in a particular way in the same manner a media outlet will publish a paid release. Yes, you can pay the owners/moderators of those websites to list your ICO in the most marketable way.

Besides that though, when a website decides to list an ICO as promising without being paid, they'll first take a look at a few things to see if it passes the sniff test. What do you guys think those things are? I'll list below what I think they are. They're not in order of what I think is most important as such, but the higher they're up the list the, the more importance I'd give to them (I've run the risk of sounding like I'm contradicting myself there, but just read it again in a different tone and it might be clearer). How all these factors come together, their functionality within their context, is what's really important:

1. The team. This one can sometimes be difficult, as if the team is new and young it might be a little harsh to assume that they can't complete the project. Similarly, if the team decided to remain anonymous (partially or wholly) this can be a huge red flag for people, but there are project that have done well with an anonymous developer/developers. However, if the team has accomplished in areas in the past that are similar/the same as the areas that are going to be engaged in the project, that's great. Token about real estate? Someone who knows real estate is great. Token about solar energy? An environmental engineer is wonderful. And so on. Apart from their past work experience, you should also look at the success of the past projects that certain staff members were involved in, what college they went to and what they studied and how the team engages with the community as a whole. Which brings me to my second point...

2. The community. Again, this is a little tricky because it's a latent signal. That is, you're only going to get a good idea of the project's community when the project has been going for a few months, but you should never underestimate the power of the community. Just try and appreciate how beneficial it is to any project that has hundred or thousands of intelligent, well-mannered and engaging people constantly spreading the word of a project they love across many different mediums and outlets across the internet. This is more true in cryptocurrencies than anywhere else, as we are all very community-driven people and we thrive, even sustain, ourselves off the information, ideas and support we provide one another. Anyone who was involved in the Power Ledger or the Quantstamp ICO process will understand exactly what I mean. There was positive communication throughout. Bad times (I mean, relatively) and good times and inbetween.

3. Communication. From the team to the community. From the community to the team. From the team and the community to the rest of the cryptospace and beyond. Communication is key. (Marketing is part of my definition of communication.) Communications in all cases should be transparent, honest, accessible and nurturing. Communication should never be censored, over-hyped, dense or patronizing. Projects that behave in the latter manners should be questioned, and they're most likely to damage No.2 (Community). Projects that behave in the former manners nearly always have a promising idea that the team are passionate to see out through thick and thin.

4. The idea. This is where the analysis of a project gets a little more interesting (for me anyway). Consider whether or not the idea has many applicable use cases and if it is pertinent to the current cryptoclimate. Both of these are important. I'll use Quantstamp as my example. Quantstamps idea is to provide cost-effective code auditing to smart contracts. Smart contracts are pertinent to the cryptospace and they have many use cases. Business can function almost automatically with them. The project is also marketed as scalable and secure. Scalability and security are two huge issues in cryptocurrency. So this is a solid idea. Projects like Quantstamp make it easy, but some ideas will need a bit more thinking over to really see if they have a place in the current cryptosphere. I'm sure you all understand what I mean though.

5. The product. Mmmmmm yes, the elusive product. Clearly, for those of you who have been in crypto long, the product actually hasn't been of the utmost important within the cryptosphere. Many ICOs have launched successfully and are still going strong without their product being released. Many projects are, to be frank, total vaporware. But don't be fooled into thinking this is okay or that this is going to go on. Over the course of this year I'm almost positive that the standard of ICOs is going to increase drastically and that having a working product come the launch of the token will almost be a necessity. So for those projects that do now have a working product come their first exchange listing, it's not implausible to assume that they're committed and in it for the long run.

6. ICO details. How are the tokens distributed? Tokens should be distributed in a fair and transparent manner. Too many tokens kept for the team can be a bit daunting and raises red flags for a lot of people. Tokens that are distributed solely through sale make the project look like a bit of a money grab. Mining and staking allow for more people to get involved. What is the hard cap for the sale? A very high hard cap (100-200 millino $ +) can worry me at times, but it has to applied in context of what the product will be or what the project intends to do. If the project requires vast amounts of sophisticated hardware then it's reasonable to see a somewhat high hard cap. If the ICO passes every other aspect of the test and it has a low hard cap... well aren't you a lucky boy/girl. (sidenote: apparently over 96% of people in crypto are male, so for those of you who really care for this space, encourage your female counterparts to get involved) (in case you're interested, I'm male) There are other details such as bounty campaigns, KYC/AML policies and the time between the crowdsale finishing and the token being available on exchanges. How you choose to interpret these is just that... how you choose to interpret these. The details are a little more subjective, but any opinions would be appreciated.

---------------

So does Hadron pass my own smell test? Let's see:

1. The team. "... artificial intelligence and crypto visionaries and run by successful serial entrepreneurs..." Paraphrasing their website just wouldn't do it justice, so here's the management team. Check their website to see their mouth-watering advisory board. The teams experience does match the demands of the project though. Without a doubt. This is a copy and paste taken directly from their website:

-Cliff Szu, CEO
Cliff is CEO of decentralized peer-to-peer lending pioneer LoanBack, Inc. LoanBack is one of the first companies in the world to automate peer-to-peer decentralized lending, with hundreds of thousands of registered users and nearly two billion dollars in loans.

Cliff is co-founder of Fanpop, a community-powered network of sites with over fifty million pieces of user-contributed content, millions of users and billions of pages served. Built to last and run autonomously, and going strong over a decade after founding, it features a meritocracy-based self-governance system, a comprehensive virtual currency and democratic elections.

Born and raised on the East Coast, Cliff studied computer science and economics at Stanford. Cliff then joined Good Technology, later acquired by Google, where he was promoted to be the youngest engineering team lead in the company, building secure mobile apps with encrypted enterprise-class wireless messaging.

To date, 100% of his backers have received a positive return on their money, and he is thankful for the opportunity to build great things with them.

-Michael Chu
Michael is a key player in the Fanpop founding team and LoanBack executive team where he has been instrumental in building out the technology and decentralized strategies that have been embraced by millions of users and customers.

A California native, Michael was the youngest ever Novell Certified Netware Engineer: at age 15, he was already designing networks for global giants like Samsung. He won Grand Prize at the prestigious Rockwell International computer science competition, as well as the First Prize in US Department of Energy’s National Science Bowl.

Michael then completed his degree in computer science at Berkeley where he was mentored by the legendary David Patterson. Afterwards, he joined Intel, where he was awarded six patents in Computer Vision as a Microcomputer Graphics engineer and co-authored a paper inventing the revolutionary technique Light Field Mapping. Michael was instrumental in the development and launch of the Intel Centrino platforms, playing an important role in the mobile computing revolution.

-CJ Jones
As a mathematics prodigy, CJ finished most of her college-level coursework in her early teens and attended Santa Clara University, graduating in two years with a degree in mathematics from the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.

Her interests lie in cryptography and mobile software development, and her advisor is an authority in cryptography and advisor to RSA. Raised in the heart of Silicon Valley, she brings her invaluable experience and perspectives in cryptography and software development to the Hadron team.

-Dr. Evan Szu
Evan received dual degrees in computer science and chemistry from Brown University where he collaborated with the renowned professor Jim Doll on computer simulation techniques for modeling atomic and molecular motion.

He then completed his Ph.D. from Stanford where he was awarded the highly prestigious Stanford Graduate Fellowship, an honor bestowed on less than 3% of all graduate students across the entire university. Evan has managed technology product development for over a decade at numerous companies in Silicon Valley.

2. The community. Incredible. People are jumping up in the Telegram group trying to be the first to answer questions. Everyone is curious, engaged and intelligent. There's no FUD, no hype. Just cool, clear thinking from everyone. Considering this hasn't even reached the pre-ICO stage and the team have done minimal marketing so far, the exponential growth of their bitcointalk thread over the past week has been incredible. New people are joining their Telegram by the minute. This is but a fraction of the power of a strong community, and as the project gains momentum we're likely to see thousands of people flocking like seagulls to the Telegram. If you don't believe me then just join the Telegram and say hello and ask a few questions.

3. Communication. Just insultingly good. Like, I mean, it's hard to get across just how active they are with communicating. Cliff, their CEO, actually rang me a few weeks ago just to chat for an hour about the project. I'm just a fucking moon kid. I'm not an accredited investor. But it doesn't matter to them. They are insatiable when it comes to engaging with the community, I've never seen anything like it. They're in no way patronizing or secretive. They never hype their project. They only release information that is absolutely true. Their marketing has up until now been quiet, but as I said, they don't release news they don't have. I'd tell you to keep an eye on them, but you won't have a choice but to know them come the end of this year. Just as a whole communication around the project is wonderful.

4. The idea. Their idea is to utilize the power of everyone's mobile phones, tablets, computers, laptops, consoles, android toasters (courtesy of another hadron member) and more. You run their miner (which is actually a neural network to power advanced AI) and your compensated for your computational contribution. You run the miner through a browser. So you can run multiple instances through multiple browsers. I think each instance needs one core. With the advent of 5G capabilities and with over 3 billion people holding mobile phones, the untapped potential is huge. The idea is definitely pertinent. The advanced AI can be used by different businesses and institutions for things like finding cures for diseases and many broads applications that my tiny head finds difficult to fully understand. Again, join the community and see what you think.

5. The product. The product is not elusive here with the hadron team. The alpha release is due on January 15th for their miner and there will be multiple alpha rounds which you can all apply for. There's absolutely no vaporware here and the team, as far as I understand, intend to have a working product around the time of the tokens release. I may be a little off on that, but you can ask the team and they'll be out-straight with you about it. Hadron's ICO, I'm sure, will be amongst the most successful and talked about ICOs of the year. They're going to raise the bar.

6. The whitepaper is due for release this weekend and all of these details I'm sure will be elucidated.

---------------

The list of past ICOs I've invested in are UTrust, Red Pulse, Solaris and Power Ledger. (You would have thought the way I went on that I invested in Quantstamp. Well I was very late to the party ie when it hit the exchanges.) Those ICOs have been great investments for me, but the potential of their projects, in my opinion, in relatively pale compared to that of Hadron's. This will most likely be the only ICO I invest in for the first half of the year. I want to learn as much about the project as I can and that's going to involve committing a lot of time to it, but I believe it's worth it. Let me know what you think anyways if you bothered to read it.

Don't blame you if you didn't.

2. The community. Incredible. People are jumping up in the Telegram group trying to be the first to answer questions. Everyone is curious, engaged and intelligent. There's no FUD, no hype. Just cool, clear thinking from everyone. Considering this hasn't even reached the pre-ICO stage and the team have done minimal marketing so far, the exponential growth of their bitcointalk thread over the past week has been incredible. New people are joining their Telegram by the minute. This is but a fraction of the power of a strong community, and as the project gains momentum we're likely to see thousands of people flocking like seagulls to the Telegram. If you don't believe me then just join the Telegram and say hello and ask a few questions.

3. Communication. Just insultingly good. Like, I mean, it's hard to get across just how active they are with communicating. Cliff, their CEO, actually rang me a few weeks ago just to chat for an hour about the project. I'm just a fucking moon kid. I'm not an accredited investor. But it doesn't matter to them. They are insatiable when it comes to engaging with the community, I've never seen anything like it. They're in no way patronizing or secretive. They never hype their project. They only release information that is absolutely true. Their marketing has up until now been quiet, but as I said, they don't release news they don't have. I'd tell you to keep an eye on them, but you won't have a choice but to know them come the end of this year. Just as a whole communication around the project is wonderful.

4. The idea. Their idea is to utilize the power of everyone's mobile phones, tablets, computers, laptops, consoles, android toasters (courtesy of another hadron member) and more. You run their miner (which is actually a neural network to power advanced AI) and your compensated for your computational contribution. You run the miner through a browser. So you can run multiple instances through multiple browsers. I think each instance needs one core. With the advent of 5G capabilities and with over 3 billion people holding mobile phones, the untapped potential is huge. The idea is definitely pertinent. The advanced AI can be used by different businesses and institutions for things like finding cures for diseases and many broads applications that my tiny head finds difficult to fully understand. Again, join the community and see what you think.

5. The product. The product is not elusive here with the hadron team. The alpha release is due on January 15th for their miner and there will be multiple alpha rounds which you can all apply for. There's absolutely no vaporware here and the team, as far as I understand, intend to have a working product around the time of the tokens release. I may be a little off on that, but you can ask the team and they'll be out-straight with you about it. Hadron's ICO, I'm sure, will be amongst the most successful and talked about ICOs of the year. They're going to raise the bar.

6. The whitepaper is due for release this weekend and all of these details I'm sure will be elucidated.

---------------

The list of past ICOs I've invested in are UTrust, Red Pulse, Solaris and Power Ledger. (You would have thought the way I went on that I invested in Quantstamp. Well I was very late to the party ie when it hit the exchanges.) Those ICOs have been great investments for me, but the potential of their projects, in my opinion, in relatively pale compared to that of Hadron's. This will most likely be the only ICO I invest in for the first half of the year. I want to learn as much about the project as I can and that's going to involve committing a lot of time to it, but I believe it's worth it. Let me know what you think anyways if you bothered to read it.

Don't blame you if you didn't.

This year is going to be an incredibly important year for cryptocurrencies. By the end of the year there will probably be in place regulatory bodies to oversee crypto activity in every major country. A lot of tokens may have their use cases taken away from them, especially if their primary concern is being a store or a means of transferring value.

By the end of the year we'll know better who the titans are and who's going to be around. My guess is one of the biggest projects of the year will be hadron. They'll have in-browser mining (which is actually you running neural network computations used to power advanced AI) available, which means it will be a piece of cake to start mining, even for those who aren't in any way tech-savvy.

Not even in pre-ICO stage, but if any of you will take the time to look over and through their project then you'll be rewarded.

Below is there Telegram channel, which is a great place to start if you're interested. They have an engaging and intelligent community that's eager to help new people. So please, come along and avoid missing what will be the most impressive ICO of the year.

Hello everybody,

How are you? I got into XBY when it was below a 10 millino $ MCAP because of how tight the technology seemed. It was a great project with great fundamentals, but it was the team at the end of the day that let (or is letting) the project down.

Since then I've been searching high and low for a project that utilizes helpful technology, but also has a stellar team: enter Hadron.

For those looking to move away from what was once an extremely promising project to something that is, this is your chance. There's no reference link here, I get nothing for doing this, but I love when you post something in the forum and it comes true, so this is what I'm doing. Satiating my ego in the future.

Join their Telegram and read their BTCT to discuss more:

2) https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1438371.new#new

I really don't mind people slamming me for posting this in here, but I've found great solace in being a supporter of this token
55  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Any new airdrop coins? on: January 11, 2018, 01:55:34 PM
One of the best airdrops you'll get all year will be HADRON.

Once the "mining" goes live (on January 15th) all you'll have to do is log onto their dashboard (hadron.cloud is the website URL; you should all register there now) and activate the mining application. This will run advanced neural network computations which may used in the future to fight diseases, so these aren't just difficult computations to secure the network. The power can be harnessed for far more useful applications.

To be part of the Alpha mining all you have to do is visit their bitcointalk page (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2142232.0) and apply as stated, with your hardware and software capabilities. Now, it's not just computers... Phones, tablets, laptops, games consoles (?) and possibly ever smart tellies (?!). Hadron is looking to utilize the power of 3 billion devices worldwide. You can also run their mining software in multiple browsers across different mediums, although obviously the more mining applications you're running, the more stress that will be put upon your hardware.

Whenever I try to mention Hadron I get a little flustered, as there's so much to mention. The project will have massively broad applications in the future. The sterling team would be enough to carry a total shitcoin to the top, nevermind a gem like this. Their communication skills are humbling.

If you want to get a little more involved and witness them firsthand, then visit their Telegram: https://t.me/joinchat/GahFuELlfJoWE1vsFQf3VQ

I'm not feeding you shit here. They will have a working product around the time of release, and it will be a desirable product

Excuse my language, but holy f****** s*** this is gaining much, much deserved traction.

I know everybody is excited to take part in the Alpha testing and the airdrop, which is absolutely fair, but I think we should be equally excited for the far-reaching potential of a project like this. The concept is incredibly unique and pertinent in today's society. Just by telling people they can effectively mine a particular token makes them more likely to use it, and what token is better to use ahead of one that can be spent on helpful services within the ecosystem it was created/mined?

The quiet has gone. The bustle is here.

Great to see the community engaging so much with one another.

The first half of this year is going to be huge for XLR and will see a huge influx of adopters and injection of peoples into the community. Hopefully we can maintain this peace and enthusiasm as we move forward and upward

Yeah, I'd love to know what the story is or was here. Is this dead? Does the community chat elsewhere?

If there's interest from others in continuing this project, let me know. I'd love to be of assistance in bringing an abandoned project into the fold. I can do research of markets and I can write. What I can do with these skills can be discussed when there's motion set

Lambo needs to do some effective marketing. Thus he can spread the word WIC and can lift the price upward.

Yes, that is what WIC just needs.

Without any marketing theres no chance the coin/app/project will go anywhere.. the ICO received millions of dollars a lot of that should be going towards advertising... At least a professional website.

Actually, the ICO barely raised a million if I remember correctly. All the same, where is the team?
