What is an ICO?
An initial coin offering (ICO) or initial currency offering is a type of crowdfunding using cryptocurrencies. An ICO can be a source of capital for startup companies. Any individual or a company can crowdfund any project or become an investor.
What is a token?
In an ICO, a quantity of the crowdfunded cryptocurrency is sold to investors in the form of "tokens", in exchange for legal tender or other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum. These tokens are promoted as future functional units of currency if or when the ICO's funding goal is met and the project launches.
What are exchanges?
Cryptocurrency exchanges are online platforms where you can exchange one cryptocurrency or token for another cryptocurrency, token or even fiat currency (USD, EUR, etc) or vice versa.
What is a White Paper?
A White Paper is an official document usually issued by new blockchain projects before their ICO, informing the reader about the new technology, methodology, product or service being launched. This document helps the potential investor make an informed decision before deciding whether to invest or not in the specific company or product.
