Token Velocity.

A number of tokens being used in an ecosystem.

And…

The amount of token leaving an ecosystem

In traditional investing.

Equity.

Rev share

Dividends

The investor holds his position and in fact, will do everything in his power to increase his holding for max ROI. Therefore the investor is bullish on the ecosystem he is in. (Not leaving, part of the team. Adding value)

Now let’s look at ICO’s

One buys a token to do what?

To speculate. Now there is nothing wrong with that.

but what is wrong, is the very nature of that token is being…


I am not going to make this post long.

All I want to do is, talk about the absurdity and FOMO economics of the ICO space and why Blockchain tech is not yet ready for the promises it delivers. On that note, if you missed my last post about “why 99% of ICO will Fail” I recommend that you read that first

So I just want you to read this point to understand that we are a long way before we can scale…


Companies are raising millions in minutes, that literally only have a white paper.

Now from the outside, it might seem like the holy grail of raising capital but think again.

ICO’s are not about raising capital.

Ethereum is in a very interesting stage right now. Having gone through numerous battles like the DAO attack and the subsequent hardfork, it is finally at a stage where it can truly expand and become something that is completely unique. In this article, we shall be discussing the upcoming changes that will be happening to Ethereum and what its future looks like.

A friend of mine recently lost his wallet with all his money, cards and documents in it, of course. He was telling me how difficult and how long is the whole process to receive new documents: queues, lost time, the documents that need to be signed, etc.

So, I started thinking how it is possible that in our modern world is still necessary to make queues in public offices in order to obtain your documents back and verify your identity. How is it possible that it doesn’t happen online?
