PRESALE.MARKET has been busy. In just over one week 50 experts joined the project to rate and assess ICOs on our live Alpha testnet Ethereum DApp.

The programme is capped at 100 experts so apply soon.

“We are seeing heightened business risk for investments in the ICO and STO space. The external validation by the experts on the TOKEN platform mitigates those risks. It also promotes best-practice in ICOs.” — Stephan Horvath, Partner at Burj Financial, Dubai.

He has deep-level FinTech, InsurTech and Big Data eco-system knowledge, including utilisation of leading-edge technologies that underpin the eco-system’s development.

In particular, his experience has extended into cryptocurrency launches, acting as an advisor both formally and informally, and in the construction of Whitepapers and token economics, mechanisms and distribution. Prior to this, his passion for the environment saw Paul developing a green technology business, with a view to matching projects and technology in the eco-system to drive beneficial results in low-impact energy generation.

Paul gained an expert level of understanding of the markets, competition, geographic, macroeconomic and global factors impacting customer experience in his 20-year financial services career, culminating in the position of Group Treasurer & Head of Global Markets for multiple banks.

Yaroslav Belkin

CEO & Founder at Belkin Marketing | Advisor at Auditchain | Advisor at QuickX

“I have decided to support the TOKEN project because I synced with its founder, Fraser Brown, on the key values and this is an amazing idea on how to fight all the bullshit. It was impossible for me not to support it as there is no other alternative in this niche. As an ICObench expert, I was bombarded with all kinds of offers, but I am tired of all the scam and paid-for ratings. We need to have our community back as it is now filled with hype eaters. The true and core community need to do something about all that. And what could be better than to use our beloved technology for it? Decentralize the hell out of rating ICOs and keep blockchain honest!” Read the full article

As ICO Advisor with a meticulous sense for details, he is well known in major US, European and Asian regions. He is regularly mentioned in crypto news media as one of the top providers of ICO Marketing services.

Paul Mears

Crypto , Angel Investing

Passionate tech, bio and innovation investor with experience of working in a variety of finance and operational roles in UK, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, USA, Canada and Monaco in a range of companies from start up to multinationals including hedge fund, telco, construction, software.

Angel investor with portfolio of Biotech, Med Devices , Apps, Payments and since 2016 active in crypto as an investor and advisor to Initial Coin Offerings including Humaniq, Modex, Varcrypt, Howdoo, Autobay, Jointo.

It staggers me that crowd funders are encouraged by the regulators and the press when you get ‘sophisticated’ investors buying 10 GBP of equity. My experience of crowdfunding has been bad with the regulated companies being very unprofessional. I do not see how it can be in the retail public’s interest to be encouraged to invest equity in startups with a 90% failure rate and probably at least 5 years to exit, yet a token that can be used in a project way faster than 5 years or traded on a secondary exchange can be the devil. It’s nonsense.

Within the framework of Presale.Market project we are developing a platform on which different ICO teams will be able to place all the necessary information about their projects, provide the opportunity to invest in them at the early stage and obtain the evaluation of independent experts (dexperts) as well. I believe this platform will replace existing centralized rating platforms.

Founder | Strategic Marketing | ICO Advisor | Blockchain Advisory Council | Bitnation Ambassador | Domain Investor is going to change the way ICOs are run. It plugs all the holes in the current ICO model and offers better security for all parties involved. We’ve all heard horror stories of ICO advisors and service providers not getting paid once an ICO has ended, without much recourse. I would not be surprised at all if advisors and services providers end up refusing to work on a project unless the project is listed on the I know I, for one, will be adopting this approach in the near future.
