My first ICO experience
Ok, so I haven’t been involved in Crypto currency for very long, only a few months when I wrote this but I found it all very interesting and spent a lot of time searching around for information trying to learn about it. I eventually bought my first Ether through coinbase and was feeling fairly confident. While researching I would look at various topics on Twitter and came across a few people talking about a new ICO called edgeless, a decentralised gambling casino. I didn’t know what an ICO was at this point so had to learn about what they were before I could get started, that took a few days and this ICO had already started so the clock was ticking.
- Price $0.080
- Market Cap
” I’d carried out due diligence and was happy, so now what?… How do I actually get some of these EDG tokens, time is running out, it’s already in the last few days of the sale! “
At the time I got in to the ICO, Ether was approx £35 and each ETH was exchanged for 1000 EDG tokens making them approx 3.5p each. Today (02/07/2017) ETH is approx £210.00 and EDG is 41p giving me and increase of approx 1150%
To summarise, my first experience of an ICO was an interesting learning curve and I found the person from Edgeless to be extremely helpful which makes me even more pleased to be invested and supporting them.
