1. What can you say about Crypto Investment and how to properly utilize the investment tools available to make the right decisions?

Crypto can be said to be a new way in which investor's uses to make money by making well predicted or analyzed decisions. As the name implies Crypto which mean secret is unlike other centralized site or application that are controlled by an admin, cryptos are built on a decentralized system, making it users the controller of their account. Important information are hidden from unauthorized users so that the cannot be accessed or stolen by third parties. The growth of a Crypto market all depends on the amount of investor's and their investment. That is the more the investor's the bigger the crypto market grows.

Peer-To-Peer networking:

In the crypto market or in the crypto world, crypto uses the Peer-To-Peer networking instead of the client-server networking, where a single node controls the activities of the user. In the Peer-To-Peer network users communicate with users in the network, no third party can interrupt, see or know what two users / account are doing.


A Blockchain is the combination of multiple blocks that stores data and information, these blocks after created cannot be deleted. It's immutable, reliable and can't be manipulated because what have been saved cannot be unsaved. Crypto is a virtual asset, because it cannot be felt physically or kept in the physical wallet, like other real world assert. It is mostly stored in visual wallet like Binance and Roqqu.

Smart Contact

This is a feature of crypto that allows actions made on the crypto to be made automatically without help of any third party, this feature makes the crypto market safe, easy to use and fast.

Tools available for crypto-investment

Tools in crypto are important equipment, or tool required for a smooth running market. These tools helps prevent lose or reduces lose of crypto asserts, this tools helps users successfully analyze, predict, trade and inform users about the latest crypto market. There are so many tools used in the crypto market for example;


This tool contains numerous coins arranged according to their rank, daily volume, the market price, and other important information about the different coins in the crypto market,
For example: coinmarketcap contains important information like the circulating supply, all-time high and low and daily/52 weeks. Informations about the listed coins and the pairs in which the trades can be done.


Trading view is a technical analysing tool that is used in cryptocurrency trading. It contains real-time chart on which technical analysis can be done with the uses of technical indicators and other analyzing tools, to help minimize risk in trading. It is also used to buy and sell assert at required price. It is also used to make orders of different types for example, limit order, market order, and pending orders. It also contain basic information concerning different asserts in the market.


This is an awesome tool, it's similar to Coinmarketcap. It contains numerous informations about the coins or asserts in the crypto market, in this platform Cryptos are classified into different groups which helps investor's easily chose their desired asserts for example, there can be classified as oracle, exchange coins, defi, stable coins, yield aggregator etc. All assert has basic information about themselves example of information seen are the price of the assert, highest and lowest price of the assert, volume market cap, chart, daily volume, exchanges, circulation supply, etc.



i. Private Sale in Cryptocurrency.
ii. Presale in Cryptocurrency.
iii. Public Sale in Cryptocurrency


This can also be defined as a kick off or starting point for all upcoming coins or tokens project, it could be in a means of airdrop or a reward given to users for referring new users or account to the platform or any awesome idea to attract more users to their platform for example, Ecoins, VNDC and pi network. Here the tokens or coins are sold at a very cheap amount, with an assurance or that their profit will be large when the coin is finally listed, the fund from sales are used to settle further expenses in improving the project.


Large Profits:

Due to the fact that their tokens are sold at very cheap price, when the project becomes a success and start having nice values in the market, the price of the assert is expected to increase and if there is an increase in price the investor's who bought the coins or tokens at cheaper price end up having Larger profit from selling their token. For Example: A Tokens sold at $0.15 might increase to the worth of $173.

Source of income :

The fund realized from the token sale will be used to sponsor the project, thereby helped to reduce the cost of developing the project.

Risks involved

It is a risky venture, though the developers have good plans to improve and make their projects successful, their projects might end up not becoming successful, making the investor's lose all their investment.


This the second stages to be encountered when developing a token or coins, in this stage token are sold at higher price with a reduced discount, this will also improve the spirit or mindset of the investor's of the Private sales, that there is hope for the future, in this stage they are more investor and registered account, meaning the project is becoming a success.


Large Profits:

There is profit from buying successful tokens at this stage because the buy price would be lower than the eventual sell price (If the token becomes successfully). The profit from presale are not as much as that from the private sale.

Lesser Risk than private Sale:

There is lesser risk involved in the sense that there are higher chances of survival for a token that has reach this stage, than a token in private sale.

Risks involved

Even though a token has survived to this stage the token, still have chances of falling, due to foreseen circumstances. This would result to lose of investor's capital used for buying the token.


This is know as the final stage involved in development of token projects, this involves awareness creating or project promotion, to inform the pubic of their projects. This is a very important stage because is the last stages for rising fund, and the price of token is higher in this stage than previous two stages.

The public now got involved since more awareness is created about the token. The issuers of the tokens are making one last move to raise funds and increase the token's growing list of users. It is also an avenue to sell the tokens at a higher price.

The price at which the assets is been sold during public sale is higher than in the private sale and presale. The discount is further reduced from that of presale, making public sale have the lowest discount in fundraising phases. The good thing is that despite that more users are expected to adopt the token as the reach of public sale is widest, including the entire public.

Bigger Profits:
Despite the fact that the price of the token is higher than the other two stages, the profit gotten at this stage is higher than profit gotten by investor's buying after the token has been listed

Risk involved

Cryptocurrency is always a volatile market, which implies that it's always a risky business and in the price at this stage are higher. So therefore if the project falls the investor's at this stage are entitled to have higher loses but on a normal circumstances the risk of falling of the project are less.

Increase in Community: At public sale, the token's community members increases. The entire world will now know of a token that has gone through previous rounds of sale and is about to be listed on exchanges. Most people begin to find out how to acquire the tokens before its listing, so the can benefit from the early profit which is usually very sure.


3. What are the mediums used for Public/Pre/Public Sales in Cryptocurrency?

Issuer's website

As the name implies, issuers websites are website of the project owners or issuer, for the purpose of generating funds for the token project. Here investor's are expected to trade or exchange a certain crypto assest to buy a new token



Crypto Launchpads

Crypto launchpad can be defined as a platform for seeking and sourcing fund or money required to work or develop a new token project. It is used by some offerings to perform public sales for the new token about to be listed for exchange and trading. It's a site used for exchange and trading for the public sale, most especially, it helps to reduce scam or fake transactions with public investor's.

In this platform investor's gain shares in the public sale according to the investment or subscriptions percentage.


Using Binance exchange as example:-

(Eberechi10 committed BNB will be / by the Total committed BNB by all participants in the launchpad) * Total tokens to be sold.

If 100,000,000 tokens are to be offered. Eberechi10 commits 5,000 BNB and 9 other participants committed 100,000 BNB, which will now be 105,000 in total

Eberechi10 would receive a ratio of 5,000 BNB / 105,000 BNB, *100,000,000, which should be 4.76% of the tokens to be offered (4,761,905 token) this information is fromBinance launchpad.


4. Research about any recent (2021) successful ICO or IEO and give detailed information about the project. (Note: BETA token is excluded).

C98 token

The one of the most recent and famous token project is the "C98" token on Binance Launchpad.

About C98 token


C98 is also said to be a gateway between DeFi service across different blockchain and different DeFi project. A total of 50 millon C98 token were available for sales with approximately 5432983 BNB committed. The price of C98 token was equivalent to 0.00025042 BNB. In other to achieve success the the developers also included the innovation of decentralized products, such as Space gate, Coin98 exchange and Coins 98 wallet. At first, they developers launched Coin98 wallet in the year 2020 afterwards the launched Coin98 DEX in the year 2021.

To accomplish this, C98 (which is short for Coin98) employs a robust suite of decentralized crypto products. They are Coin98 Exchange, Coin98 Wallet, and Space Gate. Source

Space Gate: This is a cross-chain transfer crypto service. That users Uses to swap between multiple networks in the crypto world and also credible transfers. For example SPL tokens, ERC-20 tokens, BEP20 tokens, etc.
Coin98 Wallet:

Coin98 where sold for 0.00025041 BNB at the public sale on Binance Launchpad. At the end of the public sale, the token was listed on Binance exchange. Let's see how it goes.

At listing, it was worth 0.00026 BNB then it later grew to of 0.0145 BNB.

I did calculate how much profit it generated.

((0.0145 - 0.00026)/0.00026) x 100
= (0.01424/0.00026) x 100
= 54.7692 x 100
The profit = 5476.92% Source

Coin98 at public sale gave a profit of roughly 5476.92%. If i had join in the commitment with $ 10 at the pubic sale i would generate roughly

  • Credibility:

First of all before a token can be accepted into Coinmarketcap, the token and it's users is expected to be credible enough before it's acceptable to be listed.

  • Verification:
    The token is expected to have a excellent verification system that won't easily fall, that it is expected to have a working consensus algorithm like the POW and POS etc.

    For an asset to be successful listed in Coinmarketcap the token is expected to have higher or a reasonable amount of trading volume, the trading volume also inform traders of the strength and future of the assets.

Categories of listing
  • Unverified Listing

  • Untracked Listing

Inactive Listing:

Tokens listed under this type of listing as the name implies are not actively trading on any Coinmarketcap exchange.

Listing on Binance involves three steps that can be thoroughly read by anyone who wishes to list a coin. The method is provided on the official binance website.

For a token to be listed on Binance exchange, three(3) basic steps has to be followed.


As the names implies it's the process of applying, at this stage you are expected to fill your application, which should contain your full details such as the Email, desired Token name, token symbol, etc


    This is the process the platform gives you full information of the step you are about to carry out, it's the break down about what is expected from the token and it's users.


After going through the document and answering the required questions, move to the next phase.
