The ass clowns 🍑🤡 at Tokenicide recently learned that Ethereum whitepaper appropriating blockchain startup EtherInc (a.k.a. “eInc”) has rescheduled its ICO.
Is it true that the “third time’s the charm?”
Apparently not, because this is the FOURTH public token sale date they have announced…
On April 24, 2018, we posted an article entitled ICObench Warmer. In that article, we showed how experts at ICO rating site ICObench inflated the ratings of projects they were advising. Since then, several more articles have appeared denouncing what we lovingly refer to as the ICObench "Top-Rated Expert Cabal."
We are happy to see founders as well as members of the ICO support service industry speaking out against corruption. And ICObench deserve much of the blame.
But not all of it. Not even close.
For us, ICObench was the most obvious example of corruption in the industry and a great way to start the conversation. But it is equally important that ICObench doesn’t simply become the "fall guy" for the real problem...
There are basically three types of people who invest in ICOs, and if you’re going to ask them to fund your early retirement, you’d better know how to identify and communicate with them. In this installment of the Ultimate Douchebag’s Guide to Launching an ICO, we’ll teach you how to do just that. So quit fucking around and pay attention, douchebags, because this one is well worth its weight in cryptographic tokens.
A few days ago, one of the people we follow on Twitter retweeted something from the account @ravnapp that began with “Who loves a sexy token?” Although we’re not entirely sure why the team behind RAVN chose a middle school student to develop their social media marketing strategy, we think that student deserves an A+ because we were moving faster than a one-legged man at an ass-kicking contest trying to click on that tweet. Sexy token? Yes, please!
So did we actually find a “sexy token” at the RAVN ICO website? That really depends on how you define “sexy.” If by “sexy” you mean a bloated, disgusting abomination that is antithetical to everything blockchain and cryptocurrency supposedly stand for, then yes…
Otherwise, no. Not even close…
Ultimate Douchebag’s Guide to Launching an ICO Part 1: Build Your Pyramid Scheme Just Like the Egyptians Did With Free Labor
After spending the past month and a half writing about some of the worst aspects of the current “ICO ecosystem,” the only thing we have to show for it is one of our resident ass clowns 🍑🤡 getting doxed by an ICObench expert…
We’ve researched quite a few ICO-related scams and discovered that the #1 reason scam ICOs fail is as follows:
Somebody realized it was a scam before the founders made off with the loot
So in an effort to help you up your flimflammery game, the ass clowns 🍑🤡 at Tokenicide have created this guide on what NOT to do when launching a scam ICO.
Once upon a time, not so long ago, there was an ICO review site known as “ICObench” which did a relatively decent job of providing helpful reviews of blockchain and other distributed ledger projects planning to raise funds via an ICO.
Today, not so much.
