ICO Research Made Easy: 17 Ways to Find the Best ICO Data

Is the ICO you're considering a scam? How would you know? Will the company you are researching be around two months after the launch? Or will the team have cashed out and moved on? How can you be sure which ICO to invest in?

At TruDex(TM), we believe the answer to these questions lies in arming the investor with knowledge. But to know about an ICO, one must research exhaustively by reading the white paper, an often lengthy and highly technical document. They must also read the website, study the team behind the project, and evaluate the buzz level. Who has the time?

We have the time and it's what we do. That's why we created "ICO Research Made Easy", so our readers could gain an edge over the common investor and learn research methods that help filter out the good ICOs from the bad.

Using the model of research discussed in the eBook, the TruDex(TM) team conducts in-depth research and makes available to our audience the unique database we created for ICOs and cryptocurrency information.

Now investors can subscribe to enter our database to receive unlimited access to it. They also enjoy Pro Reports, a nutshell dashboard of each ICO, eBooks, courses, and entrance into a community of investors for bouncing ideas and sharing information in this exciting new world.

ICOs in 2017 have seen an explosion like never before. Blockchain technology and the ICO method of crowdfunding new tech projects is at a fever pitch and investors are migrating to the crypto space in droves.

It's very much like the dot.com bubble of the 1990's, when hundreds of new startups tried and failed to nudge their way into a brand new market. Which start ups will rise to the top now?

Investors are facing not only new options being spun out daily, but they also must gauge the momentum that has been created since June of 2017, when cryptos began to soar. Many of the ICOs being rolled out are dangerous to investors in many ways: Some are outright scams, while many (actually the majority at this current time) are riding the wave but without a proper business plan or the experience to pull off the multi million dollar project they are proposing.

Despite these challenges, the money is moving over from fiat investment products to the decentralized exchanges that blockchain provides. Investors often have no way to know which ICOs are scams or simply doomed to fail, and which companies will rise to become the new Googles and Facebooks of our era.

Is the ICO you're considering a scam? How would you know? Will the company you are researching be around two months after the launch? Or will the team have cashed out and moved on? How can you be sure which ICO to invest in?

Systematic Trading is detailed, comprehensive and full of practical advice. It provides a unique new approach to system development and a must for anyone considering using systems to make some, or all, of their investment decisions.

Microfinance, EU Structural Funds and Capacity Building for Managing Authorities: A Comparative Analysis of European Convergence Regions (Palgrave Studies in Impact Finance)

In recent years, the European Commission has attached increasing importance to the use of financial engineering instruments rather than traditional grant-based financing for the microcredit sector, considering these to be the most efficient option available. This book presents a study of capacity building and structural funds in public managing authorities for the microcredit sector. It presents two surveys to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the managing authorities' capacity building. The first survey investigates the authorities' need for and interests in capacity building activities, analyses the areas in which capacity building support is needed, and explores the different types of support offered. The second survey analyses the results of the microcredit and microfinance programming activity, exploring its target groups and other operational features. It investigates the key monitoring and reporting issues involved in this activity, before analysing the regulatory framework of the microcredit and microfinance sector. This book presents an in-depth analysis of structural funds and their management by policy-makers in the European convergence regions. It explores the interests of managing authorities, microcredit institutions, operators and other financial intermediaries involved in microcredit programming activities, and offers some core strategic and operational recommendations for the use of structural funds in the microcredit sector.

Infrastructure and Economic Growth in Asia (Economic Studies in Inequality, Social Exclusion and Well-Being)

Public spending on infrastructure plays an important role in promoting economic growth and poverty alleviation. Empirical studies unequivocally show that under-investment in infrastructure limit economic growth. At the same time, numerous other studies have shown that investment in infrastructure can be a highly effective tool in fighting poverty reduction1. In that context, the financing of infrastructure has been a critical element of most economic growth and poverty reduction strategies in developing countries, since the start of this millennium. This book provides a comparative analysis of the aggregate and sectoral implications of higher spending on infrastructure in three very different Asian countries: China, Pakistan, and the Philippines. Particular attention is paid to the role of alternative financing mechanisms for increasing public infrastructure investment, namely distortionary and non-distortionary means of financing. The book will be of interest to scholars and policy-makers concerned with economic growth in developing countries.
