Looking to put your money to work for you with some promising investments into Initial Coin Offerings? Here are three ICOs launching in 2018 that could help you do just that.
The first Initial Coin Offering you will want to pay close attention to is Origin.
Origin is a protocol which utilizes the Ethereum blockchain and IPFS for the creation of sharing-economy marketplaces. In essence, it affords both developers and businesses the ability to construct decentralized marketplaces on the blockchain, while making it simple to both create and manage listings for the fractional usage of services and assets.
Origin lets buyers and sellers find each other with ease, while also allowing for the browsing of listings and making of bookings. Both buyers and sellers may also leave ratings and reviews — but that’s just the start.
Teams all over the world have already begun to build on the project’s protocols, but if you’re looking to conduct business on the decentralized web, this is one ICO you won’t want to miss out on.
Orchid is a market based, fully decentralized, and anonymous peer-to-peer system based on “bandwidth mining” which to address the lack of relay and exit nodes currently plaguing the I2P and Tor space by directly incentivizing participants.
As described in the project’s whitepaper, Orchid aims to construct “a blockchain-based stochastic payment mechanism with transaction costs on the order of a packet, a commodity specification for the sale of bandwidth, a method for distributed inductive proofs in peer-to-peer systems which make Eclipse attacks arbitrarily difficult, an efficient security-hardened auction mechanism suited for the sale of bandwidth in circumstances where an attacker may alter their bid as part of an attack, and a fully distributed anonymous bandwidth market.”
In layman’s terms, Orchid aims to make the Internet an open platform once more, on which human beings are free to learn and communicate in an unmonitored, uncontrolled, and uncensored environment. The project’s goal is to construct “a new civil contract around a distributed marketplace for computation, storage, and bandwidth to provide the framework for a new form of digital citizenship.”
If that sounds appealing to you, don’t miss out on Orchid’s ICO.
The last – and perhaps most promising – ICO to watch in 2018 is from OptiToken.
OptiToken is the first ever algorithmically traded hyper-deflationary cryptocurrency which distributes value through an automated tokenized portfolio.
The project works thanks to a cleverly-curated and strategically diversified portfolio of cryptocurrencies available through a single token – the OptiToken – which will be traded on many major exchanges.
The OptiToken provides exposure to a unique algorithm labeled “OptiX” which has consistently and transparently outpaced Bitcoin trading on a daily, and weekly basis since November 2017. The algorithm, which is now available on the projects GitHub, has been developed by highly-experienced traders and allows for the progressive integration of machine learning — meaning upward price pressure is going to be extreme and constant.
Importantly also, a portion of the profits generated by the company are used to purchase OptiTokens each and every buy cycle, which provides a steady upward price pressure while ensuring value for adopters and investors. Furthermore, 100% of those tokens purchased by the company are sent to an unspendable address — easily verifiable and transparent — to create a hyperdeflationary effect. In effect, OptiToken is the first ever actual hyperdeflationary money.
