After the big Crypto-Boom in 2017, the amount of ICO and Token Sales has surged exponentially. According to icotracker.net, there are literally thousands of ICO’s and Tokens out there. Knowing which ICO or Token to invest in could potentially be a huge headache for many uninformed investors. Understanding which ICO’s would potentially grow into sustainable companies and which ICO’s would be worth investing is crucial to the investor’s return on investment (ROI).
Many ICO investors neglect to see an ICO as an IPO. An ICO “Initial Coin Offering” and an IPO, “Initial Public Offering”, is similar in many ways. When a company goes public with an IPO, before you invest, you would research the company. You would look at the stakeholders (Founders), the company’s assets, its market share, growth potential and much more. It seems like most people forget that when looking at ICO’s, they are blinded by the whole “Get Rich Quick” trend, and thus they ignorantly invest in ICO-Traps.
ICO Investors should consider the following:
- How capable is the team, who are they?
- What is the ICO about?
- How does the Ecosystem work?
- How will the coin be utilized?
- How would funds be distributed?
- How are the tokens being allocated?
- How in depth is the Roadmap?
- How does the Referral or Bounty Program work?
- How strong is the Community?
- How secure is the system? (Internet Security)
Of course, there are more to look for in an ICO before even considering investing, but exploring these 10 points will most definitely protect you from most scrap ICO’s out there.
Introducing Vidy.Vidy is the first decentralized video ad distributor that embeds video ads behind the text of web pages via an NLP consensus-layer.
FOREWORDVidy aspires to bring the 600 million people using ad blockers back into the market. We will accomplish this by decentralizing a new form of innovative and judicious video advertising.
WHAT IS THE VIDY LAYER?Vidy has invented the first single-page invisible embed layer for video, run on the Ethereum blockchain.Vidy constructs a ledger system that measures how long a user watches an ad thanks to hold tracking technology on its embed layer. Vidy then rewards publishers and users accordingly for holding down on ads with VidyCoins, taken as a fraction of the VidyCoin payout made from advertiser to publisher for that video ad impression.
With just a hold, users can now reveal tiny hyper-relevant videos hidden behind the text of any page on the web, unlocking a whole new dimension to the internet.
VIDY'S TRI-LAYER SOLUTIONVidy has built the world’s first invisible embed layer that rests silently atop any website in the world, powered by the Ethereum blockchain. Vidy’s patent-pending invention allows publishers to embed a tiny video into the text of their site, letting their users hold down on that linked text to reveal supporting video for literally anything that is printed online. The user never leaves the page.

Vidy then rewards publishers and users accordingly for holding down on ads with VidyCoins, taken as a fraction of the VidyCoin payout made from advertiser to publisher for that video ad impression.
THE FIRST OPEN NLP PROTOCOLVidy’s ad placement mechanism is a proprietary open-source NLP protocol that automatically places video ads on a massive scale into the hyper-relevant text of millions of publisher pages.
This open NLP protocol is run by miners who are compensated with VidyCoin for each successful placement and corresponding decryption of a visitor’s data profile which is locked in a smart contract. Vidy analyzes and indexes trillions of words of text on publisher pages across the internet and matches them through its AI-powered deep natural language understanding models with parsed and transcribed advertiser videos.
SELECTED PARTNERSSome partnerships are for specific countries or with specific terms or pre-terms stage.
WHY WE CREATED VIDY
HOLD TO EARN VIDYCOINFor the first time ever, when you see a Vidylink and hold down to watch that vidy ad, you earn money. Vidy compensates you with VidyCoin(VIDY) for each second that you hold down. The longer you hold, the more you earn. You can even make a purchase on that video using your VidyCoin with just one tap.
USING VIDYVidyCoin (VIDY) derives its utility in 3 main ways. You earn VIDY every time you hold down on an ad, you use VIDY to make purchases in one tap on ads, and VIDY is required to stake as fuel for all ad campaigns on the platform .
