Why Civic is an unusually good ICO story
Gil Penchina

The Civic team did indeed do a great job in terms of well managed ICO from a business perspective, but it did take some backlash from hard-knocks as the launch queue was a centralized closed system that can’t be audited.

This means there is no way to verify if the order you arrived was truly the order you got to purchase in. While I’m quite confident it was, it is counter to the trustless model that crypto embraces.

Overall, they made the right choice for the sake of their ICO and the chain, but, it’s clear that one of the next needed crypto projects is a decentralized trustless ICO system that supports this model.
