Steve White - businessman and investor in internet tech companies and blockchain projects. Blockchain evangelist since 2012.
He have been engaged in creating, developing and investing in Internet companies for more than 20 years. Even if a business looks quite successful, the founders have to spend endless hours convincing several people to support their idea. And at this stage the project's future success largely depends on the investors' trust rather than product quality or teamwork. The case with ICO and crowdfunding in general is fundamentally different.
The ICO is the most user-friendly and progressive investment form with future users supporting projects they like with their capital. This is the market of the wisest who are already creating the new world leaders, cryptographically protected, regulated by smart contracts, and, of course, decentralized. That is absolutely independent.
