Your thoughts as the analyst

An Initial Coin Offering, aka ICO, is cryptocurrency’s rough equivalent to an IPO in the mainstream investment world. Essentially an ICO has 2 main goals – to raise capital for the cryptocurrency company and to initially supply their cryptocurrency to the market to be used and or traded. The coins that go through this process are called Altcoins and there are currently over 1500 alt coins on the market today. Who knows how many new coins will be introduced to the market over the next 20 years?

This class is designed to take you from cryptocurrency enthusiast to cryptocurrency analyst.
