An ICO is a fundraising operation for a project through the sale of cryptographic tokens. The tokens are sold at a discount and later on may be used within the project or sold for a profit. ICOs are unregulated and hold a lot of risk for uneducated investors.

CAUTION!! Many scammers are using the comment section to promote their scams and sometimes even use the name “99Bitcoins” in their profile. Never send money to someone you don’t know and don’t accept offers to trade or exchange cryptocurrency from strangers.
Stay safe 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Please make a video explaining the difference between coins and tokens


Say I buy bitcoin and then an altcoin. Say bitcoin drops by 50% while the altcoin increases by double. Do I make any money then? Is my money on both the altcoin and bitcoin at the same time or just one of them?
