ICOT the Shark Tank for Cryptocurrencies and ICOs

October 31, 2017, 12:13:37 PM


Hello all,

I wanted to let you know about a fantastic ICO called ICOT (Initial Coin Offering Token) that I have been privileged to become a part of. You might want to get in while it is still cheap!! (Just a thought)

Why invest?

This coin consists of 2 parts and solves a major problem in the crypto world. First, it acts just like any other cryptocoin out there in existence as it can be bought, held, or sold for profit. Second, which is amazing in my opinion, you can stake a percentage of your coins and thereby own a percent of the profits made when the company invests into other ICOs. Basically you become part of a Shark Tank but for ICOs!! This coin aims to reduce the risk associated with ICOs, which as someone who is taking part in that area of the cryptocurrency world, I greatly appreciate.

However, with all that being said, with so many coins being made it’s hard to tell scam coins from coins that have potential. So how has ICOT dealt with that? Well, what ICOT has done is to create a team of highly experienced crypto investors to sift through all the ICOs. Their job is to pick the ones that have the best potential and invest in them. If you stake some of your coins when ICOT earns a profit off one of these ICOs, you make money off it as well the percentage of which being based off your stake amount compared to the total pool of staked ICOT. Granted, though, staked ICOT are burned but that does not mean that you lose your percentage……it’s just part of the process and increases the overall value of the remaining ICOT. But what if I don’t want to stake? No worries, you don’t have to, you can just keep the coins and sell them when you want if you so choose.

Here is a little bit more regarding the specifics:
It is an ERC20 Token with a Circulating Supply of 30,000,000. It’s total supply is 100,000,000 but 70,000,000 are to be BURNED in first year which will increase the value of the remaining ICOT tokens!

What does the road map look like?

– October 2017
ICO rounds a total of 10m tokens to be sold at .25c, .50c, .75c, $1.00 and $1.50
ICOT confirmed it will be listed on COINEXCHANGE.IO
ICOT listed and reviewed by verifiedicos.com
ICOT listed in one of the largest ICO directories

– 6th November 2017 (Right around the corner!!)
ICO rounds end
All unsold coins are BURNED

– 8th November 2017
ICOT listed on major exchanges
ICOT acquires its first investments

– 1st January 2018
The CoinLock System™ Wallet v1.0 will be released
Coins will be staked/burned

There is a very active Slack channel where you can discuss the project with the entire team and those who have already become a part of this ICO!!
We would really like it if you came and said hello.
Any questions feel free to ask! I can help you get set up and I’d be more than happy to help where I can.
I believe this project to be a game changer and would hate for you to miss out on such a great opportunity.

The Surprising History of Copyright: Karl Fogel at Google Tech Talks


This is a truly amazing talk about copyright. And waaaay back in 2006! Truly amazing. From Karl Fogel at QuestionCopyright.org. What is truly impressive is how prescient Fogel is, and how he comes at this not from a libertarian angle but still gets it right on every major theme, and without being anti-free market.

    Does this guy only listen to himself? What is the point of having a debate when one party constantly talks, changes the question and refuses to accept the other argument.
