    Hi Precious,

    Have you stuck with Etherical, if so, have you had any success or enough time to form an opinion as to the effectiveness of that organisation?

    Cheers.

    Hi Wiowi,

    I still hold my initial investment of etherical and I don't intend on selling anytime soon. Having said that, I also haven't increased my holding but that is mainly because I think the whole market is tricky at the moment so it isn't easy for them (or anyone else) to do their thing. I do think they are competent but because of the tricky environment I haven't been able to make an absolute assessment of their skills. However, I do firmly believe that they are not charlatans, which is why I am ok with sitting on my initial investment.

    They recently exited a position, which will result in a dividend payment (payable in ETH or ZEA) so that is positive. They also got into the Telegram offer so that should be a positive, too.

    Sorry I can't be more informative but my position at the moment is really one of wait and see.

    I’m getting into NAVCoin.

    A privacy coin that’s been around for ages but doesn’t have a huge following. I’m particularly attracted to the ability to stake your coins and earn 5% interest (soon to be 4% possibly) and their https://valenceplatform.org which if it gets going according to the dev's plans promises huge potential for NAVcoin holders as well as businesses and software developers looking for a blockchain platform that can be implemented simply and tailored to need.

    I’ll build my own staking “thingy” using a Raspberrypi 3 B+. NAVcoin’s own model is out of stock and the build-your-own model is cheaper anyway. This coin will be a part of my long-term hold portfolio.

    Anyone got any thoughts on Navajo Coin?

    Friend of mine has been in Nav for ages and is always telling me to get in and always sending me links to articles about it etc

    I just haven't really gotten into it because I just haven't seen it outperforming any other alt, but it might be worth looking into again now

    Atonomi goes on sale June 6. Oversubscribed to the max in the initial whitelisting, limited to 20 000 subscribers. I'm going to commit a small position and flip depending upon exchanges in the hope of a quick profit. They're initial thoughts are that each token will go on sale for USD0.06 each. First day will be limited to 1 ETH, second day 2 ETH.

    If I don't flip them I'll HODL. Not interested until I see 10x the ICO price at least. Or -10x LOL.

    I don't bother with ICO's that limit how much you can buy anymore

    So many good ICO's I've spent so much time researching and then find out I either have to go into a draw to even get picked, or can only buy 1 ETH or usually less worth

    I just wait for them to hit the exchanges now - more often then not they dump anyway

    That being said, I'm not really active at the moment - not getting into anything new - just hodling and topping up my bags at these current prices

    Yep, Atonomi limited their private pre-sale to 1 Eth or less, they were going to limit it to 2 Eth or less for day two of the private pre-sale but the sale is now closed. Public sale is next, worked out to be approximately USD 0.06 each.

    Part of NAVcoin's roadmap, simplifying the adoption of blockchain tech with a focus on software design that can be implemented by non-crypto techs.

    Elastos (ELA) has grabbed my interest lately, especially with the market downturn which puts it back down around it’s ICO drop price.

    In particular is the involvement of Foxconn, the Apple supplier that Trump just gave $4billion of US taxpayer’s money to to build a factory in Wisconsin. Now I can separate my investments from my political leanings and I see Foxconn’s financial backing of Elastos as a huge positive, especially given its links with Apple and its obvious favourable relationship with the POTUS. Hongfei Da and Jihan Wu are on board as advisors too. And it’s only listed on 2 exchanges too (Huobi and something else), so the potential exists for higher prices if and when it gets listed more widely.

    Any thoughts? Especially any technical opinions.

    Edit: Foxconn suicides aside. :(

    Pretty sure I mentioned Elastos here a couple of months ago

    Definitely like what I read about it back then and have a few friends that have been in it for a while

    Haven't got into myself yet but that's just because I haven't got into anything new in a while, but it's one I continue to keep an eye on

    lets be real, jihan wu never gave a buck to anyone, youll be giving your money away to a great player, so many better projects to be invested in.

    one i have my eye on as an alternative, turning securities into blockchain assets https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/syscoin/

    I’m not asking for Wu’s bucks, I’ll be hoping he’ll drag my bucks along with him.
