Movie Company Fintage House to Accept TaTaTu’s TTU Tokens for Film and TV Rights Transactions

Fintage House has partnered with entertainment blockchain startup TaTaTu to support cryptocurrencies for film and television rights transactions, according to Variety.com. More specifically, Fintage House will accept TaTaTu’s TTU tokens as a form of payment. Fintage House’s support for TTU is not a stretch considering that TaTaTu recently struck a partnership with actor Johnny Depp. Also, the blockchain startup’s CEO Andrea Iervolino has his roots in Hollywood as a film producer. Iervolino stated: “We are thrilled to see the entertainment business community embrace TaTaTu and the TTU tokens that can now be utilized for transparent, highly efficient deal-making on any transaction.” (GT)

Atores de Hollywood apostam em blockchain para a produção de filmes

Por: Livecoins Criado pelo enigmático Satoshi Nakamoto, a blockchain é a tecnologia peer-to-peer que permitiu o surgimento do Bitcoin. Este protocolo de comunicação ponto a ponto é análogo àquele utilizado pelos Torrents, softwares duramente criticados como facilitadores da pirataria. O que surge como novidade é que agora o P2P estará não apenas operando legalmente. Ele será também suporte para o lançamento de obras cinematográficas. É por isso que atualmente atores de Hollywood apostam em blockchain para a produção de filmes. Cercado recentemente em polêmicas, Johnny Depp é um dos artistas que pretende investir na tecnologia. De acordo com a Hollywood Reporter, ele vem trabalhando em conjunto com a plataforma de entretenimento TaTaTu. A empresa se descreve como um serviço de entretenimento social na blockchain. O ator entra na parceria com a sua produtora Infinitum Nihil, e o intuito é produzir filmes e outros conteúdos digitais. O TaTaTu foi lançado em maio deste ano, sendo considerado um grande passo no combate à pirataria. A plataforma On Demand apresenta um sistema diferenciado de incentivo. Na medida em que assistem os conteúdos os usuários recebem tokens de recompensa. O valor do TTU, moeda virtual da rede, é de U$ 0,13. E o incentivo não para por aí. Parte da receita gerada em publicidade retorna para o público em criptomoeda. Esta política de encorajamento é considerada por alguns como uma estratégia para competir pela fatia de mercado dominada pelo YouTube. As propagandas são justamente um dos elementos mais criticados na plataforma de vídeos do Google. O app TaTaTu ainda está em versão beta. Quem estiver interessado na experiência, pode visitar a AppStore para efetuar o seu download. Atores de Hollywood apostam em blockchain, mas não são os únicos É claro que esta não é a única empreitada a investir na ligação entre a plataforma P2P e entretenimento audiovisual. Já pensou em financiar o seu seriado favorito para que ele não acabe cancelado? Pois isto já é uma possibilidade no projeto Zest. A Bombay Sour pretende usar a alta rastreabilidade do sistema para criar um sistema de patrocínio transparente. Assim o espectador tem a segurança de que o dinheiro investido irá para o lugar certo, garantindo o lançamento de sua série. Já existem alguns nomes famosos que apostam na ideia. Exemplos são o diretor de O Ditador, Eric Kissack, e o produtor do oscarizado O Discurso do Rei, Simon Egan. Com pelos menos 200 pilotos e séries produzidas, o Zest é um dos caminhos para o On Demand do futuro. Dito de outro modo, a tendência é que conteúdos descentralizados e com co-autoria do público se proliferem. O espectador moderno quer de fato ter participação nos seus shows favoritos. A tecnologia blockchain pode ser um degrau para que este projeto se realize de forma ostensiva e eficiente. É claro que ainda há um longo caminho a percorrer até que estes serviços alcancem a popularidade de uma Netflix. Muitos inclusive não têm previsão de chegar ao Brasil tão cedo, não sendo possível sequer acessá-los. Ainda assim, é uma promessa para se ficar de olho. Especialmente agora que atores de Hollywood apostam em blockchain para a produção de filmes. Quer se manter por dentro de todas as notícias relacionadas ao blockchain e criptoeconomia?

OneAlpha Bitcoin Report Suggests Positive Change for the Industry

An October report published by OneAlpha suggests that bitcoin has gained strength following the 2018 correction. Based in Israel, OneAlpha is a division of the First Digital Assets Group, which describes itself as “the leading digital assets group in Europe.” And the Price Goes BOOM! In 2017, Bitcoin’s price experienced several bursts that saw it peaking at nearly $20,000 in December. The Bitcoin and cryptocurrency hype was at a whole new level. Newbies started flocking to crypto exchanges like Coinbase, which saw over 100,000 additional users join its digital family, and everyone seemed eager to cash in on the now nine-year-old entity that was sure to make everybody rich. Unfortunately, the hype was short-lived as starting in January, Bitcoin and several of its crypto-cousins began experiencing swift drops in their prices and values. Bitcoin fell to roughly $11,000 by the end of the month and was trading for around $9,000 in February. At press time, the currency has lost roughly 70 percent of its value and is trading for roughly $6,400. Many had lost funds and considered the crypto space to be something of a sham. Google searches relating to cryptocurrency began to sink, and it appeared that the industry was in something of a dark place. Look on the Bright Side of Life But a light has emerged at the end of the tunnel. Despite the consistent drops in both crypto values and prices, it appears something good has come from all this, and OneAlpha is claiming that the present bearish conditions are having a “cleansing effect” on the cryptocurrency ecosystem. In the report, the authors suggest that during 2017, many people entered the market in an extremely immature way, and that the bearish circumstances have given bitcoin some stability, which could lead to a better, more legitimate market status over its present bubble image: From our perspective, the prolonged bear market provided the sector with much-needed relief, lowering valuations to a more sensible level. Despite the considerable correction, a large portion of the value represents the future potential of the network rather than its current one. The December 2017 and January 2018 boom and bust had a cleansing effect on the ecosystem, removing many of the speculators and leaving mainly real investors, operators and builders in the market. This is what was necessary to move forward and build a successful ecosystem. Israel Has Conquered ICOs The report further states that initial coin offerings (ICOs) have been instrumental in getting the public more involved in crypto (despite several being fraudulent or phony). In fact, Israel can be considered something of an ICO king as the report says the nation raised roughly $600 million in ICO funds in Q3 of this year, a near $20 million increase over 2017’s figures. In addition, last year saw a total of roughly 350 ICOs, whereas 2018 saw this number increase to 800. The largest ICOs in 2018 included EOS, Telegram, Dragon, tZero, and TaTaTu, though interestingly, ICOs account for less than 10 percent of the country’s overall capital. 2018 has been a very prosperous year for the country. Approximately 140 blockchain companies have come about since January that have raised almost $1.3 billion in new funds. The report says that approximately 60 percent of these funds were ICO-related. Israel has often been labeled the “startup capital” of the world, having raised over $5 billion in capital for new ventures since last year. The Prognosis Is Still Good In conclusion, the document describes the situation surrounding the crypto space as generally positive: We are experiencing a phase of sobriety and maturation - a decline in retail investment and a more careful, responsible approach from institutional investors on one hand and regulators around the world on the other. A long bear market might be the ideal climate to let the dust settle and examine, both internally and externally, the true possibilities that lay within the cryptocurrency and blockchain ecosystem. Ultimately, the goal is to take a step further and bridge the gap between consumers, traditional investors and blockchain technology. To view the full report, click here. Will other nations follow Israel’s lead and become major blockchain hubs? Post your thoughts below!

Johnny Depp Out, Michael Keaton to Play John McAfee in Film Project

Film veteran Michael Keaton will feature in a film about the life of controversial crypto advocate John McAfee, the man who made millions creating antivirus software, replacing the original actor identified, Johnny Depp. It now appears all was not quite so calm leading up to the final cast selection. The latest confirmation is that Michael Keaton will star as the outspoken entrepreneur, but it isn’t the first yarn about McAfee’s trials and tribulations to appear on screen, following Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee released in 2016. The documentary directed by Nanette Burstein was labeled by MacAfee as complete fiction. The latest film has McAfee’s hands all over it, so much so that he was unhappy with the selection of Johnny Depp as the main lead. Reportedly, he wanted Morgan Freeman for the part, although is happy with the inclusion of Keaton playing him. When asked about Depp being fired from the project, McAfee responded: “The pussy couldn’t handle my drugs. Keaton will have no problem.” It appears that Depp was on the project for the best part of a year before being found a suitable replacement in Keaton, recent star of the smash hit Birdman. The synopsis of the film, in brief, covers a Wired magazine reporter, played by Seth Rogan, who is sent to cover a routine story but upon encountering McAfee, realizes it’s not that at all. There has been no comment from Depp on his leaving the project but he is not short of work clearly, and it appears he’s after cryptocurrency-related roles. Depp, of Edward Scissorhands and Pirates of the Caribbean fame, had been linked early with this year with a new film said to be a biopic of the late cryptocurrency billionaire Matthew Mellon. Although it wasn’t confirmed, sources revealed that Depp was understood to be interested in the role and that “there is a screenplay being shopped”. Depp has also signed with cryptocurrency-based media platform TaTaTu for an undisclosed number of movies. The new company has been attempting to acquire major stars since its ICO and is currently working on a Lamborghini biopic to star Antonio Banderas and Alec Baldwin, as well as another movie and two documentaries. The displaced actor was clearly happy to be associated with the crypto-based company and his own deal with them commenting: “In this era of democratized entertainment, I admire the imaginative ethos of Andrea and look forward to collaborating together in a liberating, progressive manner that will befit the principals of our respective entities.” Follow BitcoinNews.com on Twitter: @bitcoinnewscom Telegram Alerts from BitcoinNews.com: https://t.me/bconews Want to advertise or get published on BitcoinNews.com? - View our Media Kit PDF here.

Are Decentralized Social Networks the Only Hope for Free Speech?

TL;DR The Internet has increasingly become a less tolerant place for radical ideas Large social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube enforce censorship based on protecting their users’ right not to feel ‘uncomfortable’ Decentralized social networks are the only possible solution to this problem. However, the current class of crypto platforms - Steemit, Minds, BitTube face significant challenges in convincing people to migrate away from these social media giants. Decentralized social networks will need to offer much more than the ability to express ideas freely. Over the past 10 years, the Internet as we know it has changed rapidly. What was once a free and unfiltered space for people to share radical ideas has now become commoditized and controlled. This is an unfortunate byproduct of a once-fringe technology becoming mainstream. This is not to say that we aren’t experiencing the best the Internet has to offer. It has never been easier to access unlimited quantities of information on any topic, connect with friends, earn degrees, and find jobs all through the click of a button and the help of the most advanced search algorithms ever produced. However, this progress has proven to be a double-edged sword, as the more comfortable people get with calling the Internet their ‘home’, the more uncomfortable they become when things they dislike intrude into that home. This phenomenon is no more evident than on social networks like Facebook, which has captured the loyalty of billions around the world due to its ability to allow us to personalize the Internet in ways that have never been done before. On Facebook, I get my own profile, I can create my own network of friends, receive my own tailored recommendations. I can earn validation the more I share my content, everything about it leads me to believe that the Internet is a vast cyber world built just for me. The same personalized features extend across virtually all social media platforms, creating a level of comfort that ensures that, as users, we remain glued to our screens for several hours a day. It’s easy to see how the constant push from Google, Facebook, and Twitter for more personalization and comfort over a span of 10 years has led people to believe the Internet should be a ‘safe space’, and that ideas you don’t agree with are somehow a threat to your existence. Worst of all, these same tech companies have now taken it upon themselves to be the arbiters of what is considered good or bad speech, censoring users with large followings simply for making a vocal minority feel uncomfortable. The word ‘responsibility’ is critical when assessing the case of free speech online. Depending on how one interprets that word, it shapes their opinions about the current climate of Internet censorship: Who is responsible for fake news? The publishers or the platform? If a fake news piece causes someone to act in a criminal way, who is responsible? Is it the fake news publisher? The platform? Or the person who reacted without first verifying if the news was true? Who is responsible for responding to an offensive joke? The platform? Or the person who deemed it offensive? How many people need to be offended by a post before the platform labels it offensive? A thousand? One hundred? One? The fundamental question of responsibility is what drives the current debate over Internet censorship. Yet the answers seem very clear when we consider how social media companies have worked to strip away the feeling of control people online once had to dictate who they could be, what they could consume and how they could react to it. Ultimately, the raw, anonymous, and unfiltered nature of millions of free people connected around the world has been suppressed for the sake of bringing mainstream access and increased profitability to Internet companies. Fortunately, blockchain technology is giving us a chance to hit the reset button on this grand cyber social experiment we call the Internet. New platforms like Steemit, Minds, and BitTube are emerging as decentralized alternatives to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Their operating model is simple; a social network free of censorship, where users can monetize their content by earning cryptocurrencies when people upvote their posts. In many ways, these platforms aspire to take what we value most about our highly advanced social media apps while bringing us back to a time when interactions were peer to peer, anonymity was cherished, and corporations were unable to impose their will as intermediaries or advertisers. Unsurprisingly, many have jumped onto these platforms to discover better ways to earn a fair wage for the content they produce, escape the threat of data exploitation (as seen in the recent Cambridge Analytica scandal), or simply share ideas that may be deemed to be ‘unsafe’. After only 2 years, Steemit has acquired over 1 million users and is ranked as one of the top 1,500 websites on Alexa. Minds has been ar

The Daily: AMD Takes a Hit, Johnny Depp and Wu-Tang Clan Enter the Cryptosphere

Today’s edition of The Daily showcases the impact of cryptocurrencies on the computer hardware business and the entertainment industry. Weak demand for graphics processing units (GPUs) in the cryptocurrency mining industry has hurt the quarterly performance of Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD), while movie star Johnny Depp and hip-hop legends Wu-Tang Clan have separately become part of the broader crypto-ecosystem. Also Read: Cryptocurrency Roundup App Gets $100,000 Shark Tank Investment AMD’s Stock Plunges on Weak GPU Sales AMD published its third-quarter financial results this week, recording a sharp decline in the sale of GPUs to cryptocurrency miners. The U.S. semiconductor manufacturer said its revenue fell by 6 percent quarter over quarter, sending its stock down as low as 22 percent on Wednesday, before eventually closing down 9.17 percent for the day. “GPU sales came in lower-than-expected based on excess channel inventory levels caused by the decline in blockchain-related demand that was so strong earlier in the year,” Lisa Su, president and chief executive officer of AMD, said in an earnings call with analysts. Devinder Kumar, chief financial officer and treasurer of the California-based chipmaker, noted for comparative purposes that blockchain-related sales of GPUs accounted for a “high-single-digit” percentage of third-quarter revenue in 2017. However, he described blockchain-derived revenue for the same period this year as “negligible” at best. Johnny Depp Partners with Tatatu Eccentric movie star Johnny Depp has signed a deal with a crypto company, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Depp is said to have agreed to develop and produce film and digital content in partnership with Tatatu, a self-described entertainment platform that incentivizes content consumption by offering digital tokens for views. Back in May, news.Bitcoin.com reported that the startup had started working on a biopic about famed Italian industrialist Ferruccio Lamborghini, starring Alec Baldwin. “Johnny has the ability to conceptualize material in a way that few can, and is unburdened of conventional industry formulas that dictate the projects that get made, traditionally,” stated Andrea Iervolino, founder of Tatatu. “As we make strides to embrace disruptiveness, Johnny will be a key collaborator with us and we are tremendously excited to back his visions and instincts on stories to bring to life.” Ol’ Dirty Bastard Coin A lot of eyebrows were raised earlier this year following claims that a token would be launched under the name of Ol’ Dirty Bastard, the late Wu-Tang Clan rapper. But now it seems that an ODB coin is really about to hit the market. The token presale, now listed on Alt Market, promises that supporters will receive free exclusive merchandise, inside information on upcoming events, and exclusive access to promotions and shows. “Crypto is very big. The blockchain is one of the biggest inventions of our time. And I don’t want to be out of the party, I want to come into the party,” said the rapper’s son, Young Dirty Bastard, according to All Hip Hop News. “I have a passion for capital.” What do you think about today’s news tidbits?

Johnny Depp To Make Film On TaTaTu Blockchain

Pirates are always on the lookout for treasure, so it’s no surprise that Captain Sparrow is getting his share of the blockchain booty. Johnny Depp, who also performed as Raoul Duke and Edward Scissorhands, has teamed up with Andrea Iervolino to develop and co-produce a film through the blockchain-based entertainment platform, TaTaTu (TTU). The first fruit of their collaboration will be Ciro Guerra’s Waiting for the Barbarians, a colonial drama based on the novel of the same name by J. M. Coetzee. Filming will begin in Morocco, North Africa, this month. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Depp will produce through his Infinitum Nihil production label and Iervolino will produce through TaTaTu, which he founded. Other co-producers will include Ambi Media Group, as well as Michael Fitzgerald and Olga Segura. Big Coup for TaTaTu The partnership marks a big win for TaTaTu, a social entertainment platform which held the third—largest crowd sale earlier this year. Although TaTaTu’s valuation has fallen quite a bit since its $575 million ICO, the company is still alive and is considered among the minority of 2017 token sales to deliver a workable product. Instead of profiting from users, the company regards itself as “a three-way system where everyone is a partner.” In a Medium post, the company explains: The goal is to reward anybody who uses or contributes to the platform. They will be recognized for their part in enabling the ecosystem to thrive. On existing entertainment platforms, the user provides his attention for free in exchange for free access to the platform. TaTaTu takes this concept one step further. Users are recognized as part of the ecosystem. They are rewarded for sharing their data and for being the engine of this economy. In short, TTU users are rewarded in tokens for interacting with the ads and branded content on the platform. Content creators are also incentivized to share their content, and an on-chain Digital Rights Management (DRM) tool will ensure that everyone pays—and is paid—their fair share. That might sound like wishful thinking, but Depp isn’t the first star in TaTaTu’s sky. Iervolino’s platform has already acquired Friedkin Uncut, which follows the career of The Exorcist director William Friedkin. With a long list of guest stars including Quentin Tarantino, Willem Defoe and Matthew McConaughey, the documentary is one more link between the blockchain and the screen. Depp did not comment on the wisdom of lambos or hodling, but in a statement to the media expressed his enthusiasm for working with Iervolino’s blockchain company. “In this era of democratised entertainment, I admire the imaginative ethos of Andrea”, he said. “[I] look forward to collaborating together in a liberating, progressive manner that will befit the principals of our respective entities.” There’s still a lot of things that can go wrong, and a million-dollar movie set is a dangerous laboratory for experiments. However, even if the partnership fails to put Hollywood on the blockchain it will still set a remarkable example for other blockchain endeavors on film. And if TaTaTu is not the best blockchain movie studio you’ve heard of, as Captain Sparrow would say, you have heard of it. The author is not invested in TaTaTu, but owns other digital assets.

Johnny Depp Signs With Crypto Based Platform TaTaTu

Actor Johnny Depp has signed with cryptocurrency-based media platform TaTaTu for an undisclosed number of movies. Depp, now world-renowned for his character in Pirates of the Caribbean plus a number of box office successes including Edward Scissorhands, had been previously linked with a biopic of cryptocurrency billionaire and New York Mellon Corporation family member Mathew Mellon. His investment into XRP turned into a $1-billion fortune before his death in April 2018 due to the consumption of a hallucinogenic drink, ayahuasca. It appears that this deal is going ahead, however, and the company which calls itself the Netflix of blockchain must be feeling that the acquisition of such a major star somewhat of a coup. TaTaTu raised over $500 million in its ICO launch earlier this year and is now gaining popularity as a platform which rewards users for watching content, sharing its advertising revenue via TTU tokens which enable customers to upload more content. The tokens can be traded for fiat on some exchanges. CEO Andrea Lervolino who also runs AMBI media stated: “Johnny has the ability to conceptualize material in a way that few can, and is unburdened of conventional industry formulas that dictate the projects that get made, traditionally... “as we make strides to embrace disruptiveness, Johnny will be a key collaborator with us and we are tremendously excited to back his visions and instincts on stories to bring to life.” The new company has been attempting to acquire major stars since its ICO and is currently working on a Lamborghini biopic to star Antonio Banderas and Alec Baldwin, as well as another movie and two documentaries.

Johnny Depp Partners With Crypto Entertainment Platform TaTaTu

According to Hollywood Reporter’s Monday report, the world-renowned actor, producer, and musician Johnny Depp enters the world of crypto by partnering with TaTaTu, a cryptocurrency-centric social entertainment platform owned by producer and entrepreneur Andrea Iervolino, who is also running AMBI media group alongside Monika Bacardi. TaTaTu represents itself a transparent social media and entertainment platform that rewards both content creators and viewers. It was launched only six months ago, but has already managed to prove its sccess. In summer, the company raised more than $500M with its token pre-sale. The platform allows users to access all the content for free and to earn money on watching and sharing it with each other. All the payments within the platform are made in TaTaTu native TTU token. In comparison to other similar entertainment platforms, TaTaTu has a social media element that rewards users for posts and reviews. The company has recently launched its beta version. As of now, its movie selection appears limited to films produced just for TaTaTu, but game offerings include Call of Duty, Zelda, and Titanfall. Within the recently announced partnership, Depp will work with Iervolino to produce both film and digital content for the TaTaTu platform. As Ieorovino has enthusiastically commented to the collaboration: “Johnny has the ability to conceptualize material in a way that few can, and is unburdened of conventional industry formulas that dictate the projects that get made, traditionally. As we make strides to embrace disruptiveness, Johnny will be a key collaborator with us and we are tremendously excited to back his visions and instincts on stories to bring to life.” Johnny Depp is excited not less than Ieorovino, saying the following: “I admire the imaginative ethos of Andrea and look forward to collaborating together in a liberating, progressive manner that will befit the principals of our respective entities.” Before their crypto partnership, Depp and Ierovino began their collaborative production of the adaptation of the J.M. Coetzee award-winning novel Waiting for the Barbarians, which they will begin shooting later this month in Morocco. AMBI is producing the drama, which will star Depp, Mark Rylance and Robert Pattinson, with TaTaTu now also coming on board.

The partnership between Depp and TTU will involve collaborating on the creation of new film and digital content. The two parties were brought together initially by the movie ‘Waiting for the Barbarians,’ which stars Depp and was promoted by AMBI, the media group connected to TTU. (JF)

Will The ‘Ethical ICO’ Atone For The Father’s Sins?

It’s fashionable to disparage initial coin offerings (ICOs): the choice fundraiser for the cowboy, the con and the scam. With a tarnished name, few legitimate projects chose to go down the ICO route. The crowdfunding platform, Cofound.it, closed its doors in September complaining the ICO market ultimately hurt investors. It’s a low ebb. But one British-based project thinks it can still be used; if it’s an ethical ICO, anyway. Holding company Investx announced on Thursday that their planned public sale for the INX utility token would follow strict principles to reduce the risk for investors. This will include the creation of a reserve fund as well as a sustainable token supply. The company has brought on David Atkinson, Director of Holochain (HOT), to advise and assist the development of an ethical ICO. “We [Investx] wanted to differentiate our ICO by openly committing to ethical ICO principles”, said Peter Edgar, CEO of Investx. “These are steps we’ve taken to stabilise the token, lay foundations for future growth, and commit to transparency that holds us accountable to token holders.” The funds will go towards Investx’s new blockchain equity platform. Based on the Ethereum (ETH) network, INX tokens can be used to buy equity in private companies, which they can keep or sell, in or outside the ecosystem. Although companies hosted on the platform will have the option of accepting INX for equity, Investx will have a fiat currency reserve relative to the number of tokens in circulation, which can be used to buy equity on the token holder’s behalf. Investx argues that their blockchain model would open up SME (small and medium-sized enterprise) investment to a wider variety of investors, including even retail investors. The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has so far given their approval. The Ethical ICO There’s not much separating an ethical ICO from a good ol’ fashioned ICO, at a primary level anyhow. They are both crowdfunding strategies that sell utility tokens to investors on the understanding that there will be a use, a ‘utility’, for them when the platform is fully operational. This makes them different to a security token offering (STO), which are bought on the prospect of a future monetary return: similar to shares sold in an Initial Public Offering (IPO). But enough anacronyms. Interested to know a little bit more, Crypto Briefing decided to talk to Atkinson about what he meant by an ethical ICO and what separated them from other forms of tokenized crowdfunding models. Atkinson joined Investx about a year ago as the project’s main advisor. CEO Peter Edgar had approached him and the Holochain team about running an ICO. Edgar was attracted to Holo’s own ICO, which they called ethical and were in the process of developing at the time. Before long he asked Atkinson if he would help Investx run a public sale along the same lines. For Atkinson, an ICO can be considered ethical if the token sold actually has real utility, based on a real need. He explains that the project has to outline in its whitepaper what the token’s future purpose is, and how exactly it would benefit holders. Referring to a “demonstration in demand”, Atkinson argues that investors need to be told how these tokens address a problem that would otherwise remain unsolvable. “It’s on the projects to clearly represent their product and show there is a demand for what their building”, Atkinson explains, over the phone. “With Investx for example, they have to be able to show that there are private buyers who want to buy equity in private companies through blockchain”. Atkinson points out that a clear, outlined use case makes Investx’s ICO ethical, compared to some of the other token sales that have happened in the past. INX holders won’t gain any benefits just from ownership. They are not security tokens. He explains that the tokens have utility because they make equity purchases easier. Investors using INX tokens can bypass the frictional and legal costs as well as the time delays normally associated with buying equity. “This is what the asset is; this is its utility”, he says. The ICO space today Projects used to be able to raise millions of dollars by holding an ICO. Market euphoria and the promise of near-instant returns turned public sales into feeding frenzies. Some public sales in 2017 hit their hard caps in a day, a few sometimes in less than an hour. Aragon (ANT) raised $25m in less than 15 minutes; the public sale for the Basic Attention Token (BAT) raised $36m in around 30 seconds in May of last year. The landscape looks different in 2018. The perceived wisdom now is the projects heading down the ICO route originally failed to receive sufficient funding from venture capital. There is far less money going into ICOs than there was last year. Business Insider reported earlier this week the amount raised last month was the lowest since May 2017. With notable exceptions - TaTaTu and EOS spring to mind - few come close to their targ
