    Default Experiences with ICOs?

    Hi guys!
    I was wondering if anyone here has ever invested in an ICO? For those of you who are unaware (which I doubt but just to be sure ) an ICO is an Initial Coin Offering and is similar to an IPO (the Initial Public Offering) in the stock market. It means that you can buy a coin, token or a stock before it goes public, and works like a crowdfunding. I’m fond of the theory of crowdfunding because it helps small businesses to make the ‘jump’. Nevertheless, I’ve never invested in one neither^^

    Yesterday, however, I read an article online about a new cryptocurrency (Cultural Coin), which is currently in its second ICO phase. The project and platform behind this cryptocurrency sound very interesting that's why I'm thinking about investing in it. However, I am not quite sure how risky an investment in ICO is. Especially in this one. Like everything else in life, I assume there are lots of pros and cons of ICOs and crowdfunding. Of course, I have already googled some but most of the articles I found were paid (ad) articles promoting this or that. Therefore, I'd really appreciate some advice, experiences or tips concerning this topic by you guys.

    Thanks in advance!

    PS: currently reading the white paper!

    My personal opinion - Never invest in ICO’s, unless you have spare £££ that you want to bin it.

    I’d rather invest in a coin already in public exchange (BTC, ETC XRP, LTC) however crypto currency is extremely volatile and that you are not afraid to lose.
