Sponsy, a decentralized platform that allows sponsors and sponsees to conduct sponsorship deals, was expecting to raise millions of dollars in late 2017, even though it didn't have a product. The founder told the Financial Times that it was the norm for a company to raise tens of millions of dollars without a real product during the Great Crypto Bubble of 2017-2018. However, the company's lawyer advised Ivan Komar, the founder of the platform, not to ICO before a real product was built. Komar said that listening to his lawyer was the greatest mistake he made.


Maybe, maybe not.

SEC is looking at all ICOs in 2017-2018, and if they apply the "Howey Test", a lot of the ICO operators might be charged with security fraud violations, prison, and stiff fines. The primary job of the SEC is to protect small investors.

BTW....I live 5 miles from Howey. What a mess of a beautiful plot of land.

I say nope, but it's a good nudge in the right direction.

That's my feeling Brick....let them educate the people, and some will flee the plantation.

If they do it, it will just be another stablecoin, not cryptocurrency.

I'm probably a Bitcoin maximalist. I own a couple of sh*tcoins that are still worth more than I paid for them. I haven't bought this - I'm still studying it. It is an African coin, therefore it is launching in one of the biggest unbanked continents in the world.

I'd love to see Oprah dump a million in it. The cost is 30 cents a token for the next 3 days.

No info on Akointo availability. Still selling at ICO price. Probably best to pass on this. Sad, so much potential if it was ran correctly and legality. It's looking like another Petro.
