I also think that POS must be tamed to reasonable profits like normal interest in rates of 5 to 12 % rates.
And POW must be rewarded more because of the effort, investment in hardware and power bills.

The ICO industry is full of scams, and this is not looking good for the industry being able to regulate itself, which is why so many countries are taking the side of banning ICOs, or at least investors investing in them. It's unfortunate that the industry is to full of scammers. There needs to be some legitimate web services which can actually audit ICOs, by audit I mean being flown down at the ICOs expense, to inspect offices, financials, meet staff, etc.

I think it is normal that we are seeing a bigger resistance against icos, while some icos are good projects most of them are nothing but scams and many people are losing a lot of money investing in icos, I do not like government regulation but it seems people are not going to learn their lesson in any other way.

Actually they are very high risk investments since many of these companies do not have an official registry or formal offices to address any claim. Personally I think that there should be more regulation in this new business model, and that is why I have recently seen ICOs like Crypto 20 that already requires documentation to be able to invest.

Is it maybe not possible to create somekind of "institute" where you can deposit a legal claim for a new ICO based on some basic rules?
Ofcourse with a website, registration and afterwards proof of youre existence?
So you can get some recognition from a solid platform?

For people who wants to invest in this brand new world it maybe an interesting portal.
Any ideas?

90% of everything is bullsh*t and mostly ICO are only ponzi schemes or "real money for swinging in the clouds". From the other side shall we see fully centralized and regulated ICO inside crypto system? That will be funny because that will quit the whole conception of crypto. Technically how it can be controlled? Legal and Illegal coins and tokens? Can it appear that BTC will really open the Pandora's box of mega-centralization and control?

Maybe than you can also make some registration fee over the registration wich makes it for low level scammers not interesting to do so.
But keep it low enough to normal investors to get there recommendation on the list.
Also there can be a record of scam ICO's on the list which do not have all the thrusted necessery requirements for an ICO.
And ofcourse full proof of exitence by the regulated paperwork.

It's just a idea..

But it has to be globely....i think

It's normal process because regular fiat institutions like banks and regulatory commission are not getting their share, white-grey-under the table.

Current ICO status is like Wild Wild West on stock market. Completely unregulated, with a lot of scams and a lot of legit projects. But you need to use your own head and make a profit instead some commission to tell you where to put your own money.

Because ICOs are coming in numbers [400+ a month!!]..It has govts seeing red.

Some are scams - there are always people trying to make money off of a hype.

Hopefully the regulations put in place are not outright bans, but something that will help it prosper and guard against fraudulent activities.

It is actually a good thing that the medias are warning people about ICO's.
If you just arrive in the cryptoworld and get scammed by an ICO, you will probably never look again at crypto, which is sad.
For more experienced people, we know that there are so many scams and we tend to be way much more suspicious.

I find it a bit hypocritical to be honest. There are so many things in the regulated markets that are also dangerous, but they pretend it's safer. Isn't that worse? You think you're safe but you're not. At least with ICOs you know all bets are off.

The BIG problem is that the cryptoworld can not be stopped nor controlled in any way.
It's open and free like people want it to be.
So there has to be a platform or portal(hardware, legaly and software) where everybody can check if the wanted ICO, is trustfully or not.
This has to be global ofcourse but....how?
It may not be controlled by whatever country, gouverment or whatever at this level.
Maybe we can make something the same as linux thorvald invented....some kind of open source portal...

i don't know but it's a thought....think with me...

I think this is largely due to the fact that the traditional companies are having a very hard time looking for investors to fund their projects or brilliant ideas. And seeing the ICO as a new way that is being used by crypto projects to gather support in terms of investment is carried out far easier, they are starting to influence their own governments to ban these ICOs. They better join the ICO party if they wish to.

For company's it is a big opportunity to get investers for their course.
For that it is a good bussiness plan and maybe profitable as i mentioned before.
But...therefor it needs a good platform for reference.

So yes, i find it the future, but it has to be regulated in some form without influence of anybody.

It is like the stock market, considering you buy and sell tokens on an exchange. Except that it’s not regulated like a stock market. There are a lot of scams in the ico space and a lot of poor projects that will never make it anywhere. That rarely happens in the stock market due to regulations.

A lot of investors could see icos as a get rich quick scheme and don’t understand the risks or the fact they are not regulated. I think it’s good that governments issue public warnings.

I can't agree with you.

If you got scammed, the most probable reason will be that you've invested in something which is "too good to be true". This is valid any venture - in real or virtual world. If you are not using your own head, nobody will help you. But at least there will be nobody to blame on.

Yep true..but it is also proofen that the stakes can be very high as is the profits.
That is why i like to have somekind of independed "proof of trust" site where all new ICO's can proof there trust.
This will be no garantee but it makes all a bit more transparent...i think

government regulation is right, I think it's good to prevent citizens from being fooled and wrong choosing ico.
