10 months ago I took a trip to Bali and spent a couple weeks living in a boutique hotel turned coliving apartment at a place called Roam Ubud.

Quickly understand what an ICO is and what they're good for.
An Initial Coin Offering is a new way for startups and entrepreneurs to bring products and services to life without going through the painstaking process of wooing VCs in traditional capital markets, who will at best immediately own a double-digit stake of your company.
Rather than relying on traditional methods for raising capital the ICO, or Initial Coin Offering, enables individuals and teams to generate funds in the form of cryptocurrency, helping provide the means necessary to move forward with their product or idea.

Jamie Dimon may believe Bitcoin’s ‘a fraud’ but I know a few CoinSheet enthusiasts who would beg to disagree. If you’re like me you might not be able to afford to buy Bitcoin.

When Jamie doubled down on trashing bitcoin the very next day with the same rhetoric I gleefully submitted him to the Bitcoin Obituaries with the rest of the naysayers.
