ICO Business Be Like SPAM All Over The Place

4 Nov
2017

Do you wonder why there are some Bitcointalk ICO announcement threads with a lot of activity, even though the user posts seem crappy, pointless or weird or why you get emails promoting new ICOs for no apparent reason? Well, it is all because somebody paid to get their forum thread boosted with fake comments or paid for email promotion (pure SPAM) to crypto users. Now, it is questionable what is the effect of such efforts to promote an ICO project, but it is happening, so some people are apparently paying for this. Here is an email from one such offer to get an idea on what the prices for such kind of “promotions” go and this is one of the reasons why Initial Coin Offerings opt out for large marketing budgets and if you don’t have one the less likely you are to succeed. With all that said we are not fans of methods like that and there are much better ways to utilize your marketing budget to promote your project…

This. Also shows why airdrops are just the next generation of (covered) premined scams; “devs” owning thousands of accounts redeeming coins for themselves.

Both ICOs and airdrops incentivize account trading.

My hero account (4 years old, +500 posts) at Bitcointalk was hacked.

They changed my avatar, and now it shows an Eidoo icon. Well done, Eidoo.. pass the voice. SCAM

This needs to be spread throughout crypto communities, the word needs to get out as this can be very misleading.

The sad thing is, this puts a very bad face on ICOs in general (of which, some may be/are legit projects, led by legit entrepreneurs). Hopefully 2018 will prove that statement correct.
