Cryptocurrencies, and by extension issued tokens, live in a legal grey zone. ICOs are just a means to use blockchain-issued tokens as a funding mechanism. If it weren't for the legal grey area, it seems to me that they're exactly the thing that investor accreditation laws are intended to prevent: raising money from people who are vulnerable to being scammed....

In your question statement you mentioned TON ICO, (telegram). Telegram never announced any ICO till the date. Though some scams were there cashing out the name of telegram. Coming back to the Question, ICO may or may not have their own blockchain. Most of the ICOs issue ERC20 tokens that means they are powered by Ethereum blockchain. That means they are ...

While I think the project as some merit, I am concerned about any legal liability I could hold. That's a good thing to think about. The company that wants to hire me has declared to me that the ICO would be available to US residents and that I shouldn't worry about kyc or aml. Do they mean that you shouldn't worry because someone else in the company is ...

From a investors perspective, : You buy them because you speculate that the tokens will go up in value over time, as the company behind it develops the usecase of said "Product/Token". Or, because they suspect that the Token/Coin/Blockchain will get adapted by alot of people/users, and used as a Currency. For example, Ethereum. It was first launched as ...

Do crypto-coins themselves (bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum and 100500 other shitcoins) generate dividends? :)))))))) the answer is: ponzi pyramid scheme. point.

One possible reason to not attack a coin with weaker security is the lost opportunity cost. In order to attack a network, the attacker will need to devote hashing power to the attack. If they did not stage an attack, they could use that hashing power to mine a profitable coin instead. The benefit of the attack must at least outweigh the lost opportunity ...

It is not possible to know such things unless an exchange announces that they will be listing an ICO or if the ICO creator announces that an exchange will be listing an ICO. An ICO being listed is not automatic; humans are involved. In order for an ICO to be listed on an exchange, the exchange operator must manually add it. This can happen either if an ICO ...

This is correct. Any Ethereum address is compatible with ERC20 tokens (even a contract address). There is also the ERC223 standard, which isn't finalized, and if approved would allow contracts to accept or reject specific tokens. In such a case, contract address validity would be a valid concern. However, for ERC20 tokens, there is no such issue, and ...

There is a post on Reddit with TON Whitepaper uploaded to Google Disk. The source is said to be TON telegram channel.

If the tokens issued by the company or person don't make it onto an exchange, then they really don't have any market value. For example, I can create a token called a Lopez token with a supply of 1 Billion (just google "Create own coin") that I can send to my own family members over the Ethereum blockchain. However, unless my family is made up of hundreds of ...

I received the first email from the Venezuelan government. I also translated the Spanish guide fully (pretty simple steps). In the email I was led to a link that asked me the minimum and maximum I would purchase. I am currently waiting for the second email to download the wallet. If anyone has surpassed this point and actually gotten the wallet let me know.

I'm developing an open source software to unify all these disjoint sources in one database. I've found an interesting free API service (IcoBench) that have a lot of information for ICOs, like prices, team, even ratings and a lot of more. The post ICO prices are not stored, but you can use coinmarketcap.com for search historical prices after the ICO was ended ...

The majority of ICOs are raising funds by using ERC20 Tokens/Crowdsale contracts deployed on the Ethereum platform. This implies that they are NOT creating their own blockchains or coins from scratch which in turn implies that they are riding on the back of all Ethereum blockchain resources for mining, block exploration etc.

A BIP32 master extended private key can be used to derive child addresses, but to spend coins sent to those child addresses, you will need the private key of each individual address. The master xpriv key cannot spend the coins located in one of its child addresses. Remember that an address derived via BIP32 is otherwise indistinguishable from any other ...

The answer to this is probably much larger and more general than just being applied to your question. From a generalised point of view, businesses that specialise in certain activities are able to master them, which in an even more general sense, is the same reason usain bolt never competed in javelin and high jump. More specifically, exchanges and wallets ...

If you held NXT during the ignis snapshop on 2017 Dec, 28 you'd receive .5 ignis once the Ardor platform releases in 2018. As for the JPL license, supposedly you'd receive 10% of the coins being created with a new fork of NXT. Also child chains on Ardor are giving out airdrops if you hold ignis like bitswift.
