Ep. 22 - New Tools as the ICO Process Starts to Mature Barry E James interviews Mark Kirby of TokenL
99% of people looking to launch an ICO haven’t done so before. Many others have so why not tap into
that knowledge and experience?
As we keep finding out at ICOrad.io, lots of teams end up inventing and re-inventing some of the same
wheels in this all-new world of crypto-economics, where so few people can justifiably call themselves
‘experts’.
Today’s guest is looking to change some of that!
Mark Kirby has a background in both supply chain logistics and high-net-worth investment, especially
non-traditional and alternative assets. He is also the founder of Token Lounge, a platform saving ICOs a
lot of the time and cost involved when setting up their projects, by giving them access to the experience
of others who have been there before them – and a few whizzy widgets along the way.
While they don’t offer investment advice, the experienced Token Lounge advisor panel works with ICOs
to become the most investment-ready they can be, offering support and guidance on whitepapers,
smart contracts, tokenomics structure and business roadmaps. Only once there’s a sound business plan
outlining what is a viable project – just like any traditional investment asset – will the platform advertise
the ICO to the wider community.
And to help that, the available software makes the process much easier.
A plug-in widget sits on the ICO’s own website and accepts investment in any fiat money and over 50
different cryptocurrencies – meaning investors aren’t stuck with just Bitcoin and Ethereum. The system
leads people through registration, in-depth but user-friendly KYC and AML, and smart contracts can be
written into the website. And instead of taking months to process tokens, the ICO helps avoid streams of
email enquiries about how many tokens will be issued and when, because tokens can be automatically
issued to the user – cutting out concerns about when funds are incoming and how much.
