I have an idea for an ICO. PI would have 3.14159… tokens and less is more. I.T. would calculate the value of pi and award the ones helping to calculate. It's blockchain would be pi too. If it became currency the number would be calculated more precisely than anywhere else.
Get a hold of me if you want to help create

I know a social network like Facebook and Instagram that gives you its own token to free

for liking and advertising

By attracting each member by you, it gives fifty EPCOIN tokens

I have evidence that such a token exists on several sites

I always try to follow the facts

I want to create a marketing team and we advertise for real companies and get our salary in tokens

من یک شبکه اجتماعی مانند فیس بوک و اینستاگرام را می شناسم که رمز خود را به صورت رایگان در اختیار شما قرار می دهد

برای پسندیدن و تبلیغات

با جذب هر عضو توسط شما ، پنجاه نشانه ای پی کوین می دهد

من شواهدی دارم که چنین نشانه ای در چندین سایت وجود دارد

من همیشه سعی می کنم واقعیت ها را دنبال کنم

من می خواهم یک تیم بازاریابی ایجاد کنم و برای شرکت های واقعی تبلیغ می کنیم و حقوق خود را به صورت توکن دریافت می کنیم

I think Tokens and Tickets thought of this year's ago, buy coins, get tickets and more coins, then buy cheap toys

Daan Verfaillie says:

Always be careful with ICOs. There's too many scams out there 😅! From the 5 ICOs I invested in, only 1 turned out successful (Nauticus Exchange). They're still doing great during the bear market! They're also doing 99.9% off of fees for this month!
