ICO Beez is our view on the constantly growing ICO world. We’ve created and are constantly updating three useful lists: Active ICOs, Upcoming ICOs and Ended ICOs for everyone who is interested in ICOs and wants to stay current on the topic. The lists look like a kanban board (Inbox, In Progress, Done).
Our rating system designed to inform users about noteworthy token sales. When composing the rating only short-term conditions and parameters of a particular token sale are analyzed. ‘Interest Level’ is provided merely in informational purposes and does not constitute financial, legal or other advice.
Rating weighs three factors: Hype Level, Risk Level and ROI Level.
This factor relies on the size and quality of the actual audience interested in the project on social networks, chats and on the internet. Spam and bounty activity is sorted out. Then, the remaining activity is compared with other ICO campaigns running at the same time and relevant completed token sales.
This factor reflects the conditions of participation in the token sale (% of tokens available for fundraising, hard cap, personal hard cap, pre-sale results, buyback, etc). This factor may suggest that the exchange price could be lower or higher than the price during the ICO.
This factor shows how much token price could change over the short- and mid-term. The factor depends on the ICO conditions and performance of similar projects in retrospect.
An ICO (Initial Coin Offering or Token Sale) is a type of fundraising where in exchange for money (Bitcoin, Ethereum or fiat money) investors receive tokens (coins). Projects that launch an ICO promise an investor that tokens will have value and can be used after the ICO.
An IEO (Initial Exchange Offering) is a token sale supervised by a cryptocurrency exchange. IEOs are available exclusively to the exchange’s users, although some IEOs may take place in several exchanges. Just like ICOs, IEOs allow investors to get new cryptocurrencies (or tokens) while raising funds for promising crypto projects.
An IDO (Initial DEX Offering) is the ICO and IEO both in one, but a centralized exchange is replaced with decentralized.
IDO has a great advantage on IEO, because For IEO you need to pay exchange fee, which are raising up and up as the market develops, but for IDO you do not need anybody’s permission. Its a completely synonym of decentralization – Instead of exchanges, vocal community members are the ones who vet projects and tokens. It opens new horizons.
It’s the first sale of tokens. Most often, money is collected for advertising the main ICO.
Bounty is a way to get tokens in exchange for helping the project, for example, by promoting it in social media, translating to another language or referring to friends.
