The Ether Review #70 – CoinList Battens down the Hatches with Watertight Token Launch Compliance

Juan Benet and Jesse Clayburgh of Protocol Labs, and Ryan Zurrer of Polychain Capital, discuss CoinList, a platform for token-backed networks to raise money through pre-launch token sales.

While planning the Filecoin token sale, the team at Protocol Labs developed a method of accreditation for US investors in order to comply with securities law. Realising the importance of such a system for the whole ecosystem, they partnered with AngelList to develop this into a platform on which other projects can host their token pre-sales. The end result, CoinList, streamlines the complicated token launch process for developers and investors alike.

By supporting a wide variety of sale mechanics, contracts, and pricing schemes within a standard set of requirements, the platform allows developers to focus on optimising their projects instead of spending time on convoluted compliance processes. Its focus on simplifying due diligence reduces complications for developers while ?‘?œfiltering out the signal from the noise?‘.

With the ability to clear transactions simultaneously across fiat and cryptocurrencies, and the aim of hosting high-quality and high-integrity projects, CoinList opens up the token ecosystem to an influx of capital from a range of new investors. It gives these investors visibility into the progress of a sale, a clear quality checklist for each token, and a record of their previous investments and the requisite legal agreements.

The significant institutional capital still pushing into the cryptocurrency space highlights the demand for such a versatile yet user-friendly platform at this time. With its solutions to regulatory uncertainty, costly compliance and the current knowledge barrier to investing, CoinList is well-placed to bring in the era of Web 3.0

ICObazaar is an innovative crowdsale participation platform that lets you explore and contribute to any ICO at any stage of the fundraising process.

Crowdsales made simple

ICObazaar was created to make participating in any ICO as easy and painless as possible for people at any level of experience in the emerging industry. Many ICO campaigns present a number of barriers to participation – including complex registration, limited payment methods, and network overloads that cause supporters to lose time, effort, and even money in the attempt to donate to a project. Many potential supporters end up missing out on crowdsales entirely, especially the most sought after ones.

ICObazaar’s mission is to simplify and demystify the process of crypto crowdfunding by  removing these barriers for participation in any ICO. They make it easy to contribute to any campaign, offering simple, one-time registration on their platform and providing a multi-currency donation interface (up to 50 different digital currencies) for all campaigns on the platform. For security, ICObazaar stores users’ donated funds in a cold storage that mitigates the risk of hacking or theft.

Exclusive Access

Perhaps the platform’s most unique and valuable feature is that they guarantee your participation in ICO campaigns at multiple stages of fundraising – ICObazaar users have exclusive access to campaigns both before they publicly begin and after they’re publicly completed. This expanded access to campaigns means that potential supporters no longer have to worry about missing a campaign, or paying high fees just to make sure their donation is included in the fundraising pool. You can either secure your tokens ahead of time, or, if you were late to the game, get another chance to participate before the tokens become tradeable on the market.

A platform for a changing landscape

ICObazaar recognizes that the way crowdsales function is constantly adapting and changing, and they aim to grow and innovate along with them. “Our main goal is to make sure that people who want to participate in crowdsales have a more intuitive and user-friendly option, and we’re continuing to develop with that in mind,” stated ICObazaar Director of Marketing, Olivia Lakely.

At the end of the day, the platform’s efforts help crypto crowdsales be what they are meant to be – decentralized public efforts to make innovative ideas a reality. The company sees the hassle and complexity surrounding participation in crypto crowdsales as an unfortunate, but avoidable aspect of the industry. Lakely added: “We’re aiming to shift the focus in crowdsales onto what actually matters, the value of the projects themselves. Supporting them should be easy and painless, and on our platform it truly is.”
