This post is inspired by 5 Critical Factors to Look for Before You Invest in an ICO. How secure is your ICO investment? written by Marina Baslina
After writing my previous post, The Human Side of our STO, I came across this post by Baslina (thanks Baslina for writing a wonderful post) that explains 5 factors anyone should look into prior to making investment in any ICO. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this post and thought why not, exhibit our ICO along these parameters.
- Team composition
We are an ambitious team of 2 (for now), and actively hunting for our 3rd partner. As much as we possibly could (without getting too ‘much’ on social media, for comfort), Kashif and I are fairly open and present on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Quora, LinkedIn.
Our content theme is ‘to educate’ and ‘create awareness’ about the cryptocurrency and not specifically promoting our STO. As I’ve been repeatedly saying across different platforms, our project aims to build a community hence knowledge sharing comes as an integral part of this journey. Excellence is sought, hence community building stays our prime focus.
Theoretically speaking, we have been in crypto world for 9 years by now. Practically speaking it had been 2 years. Let me elaborate. We both did post-graduation in Computer Security & Audit from University of Greenwich, back in 2009, the year BTC was born. One of our subjects was ‘cryptography’ and ever since anything and everything that evolved in this space, had been through under our radar.
2. White paper
I’ve am personally obsessed with reading and writing research papers. Give me 4 research papers on say disruptive innovation, and I’ll write a 5th one by the end of the week, with my own research, views and opinions. So, when it came to writing the white paper for this project, I was thrilled, excited and scared. Of course I wanted to do my best and wasn’t sure if I could. And then it occurred to me, that it doesn’t have to be perfect the first time, as our community will help us improve and evolve it as we progress with the project.
