Block$$$: Crypto “watch” of the week - ICX

Dec 18, 2017 138 Comments

Update:

At the time of this post, ICX was trading at $2. It hit $3, then dropped to $1.80 after the recent correction and now trading at $4.22.

I’ll be hodling this for a while! For anyone who took the plunge with me, it’s a bit early to tell, but congrats!

**********************************************

Alright guys. This one is tricky and it’s not really a pick, but worth looking into as there is a lot of hype surrounding this coin.

ICON (ICX) coins are about to hit the market. Original price was $0.13.

ICO price was 2500 ICX/ETH. ETH has gone up quite a bit, so prices will have to 2.5~3x for ICO investors to break even.

Institutions/syndicates got a slight discount, so they got in at 2750 ICX/ETH.

***Coinmarketcap prices are not reflective of true value. upper $2 lower $3 on opening is insane.

ICX coins are still locked as of this post. My thesis is, when the coins finally flood in, price will crash down, then it should gradually.

Photos show it’ll be listed on OKex.
I think it’ll be listed on Binance soon. EtherDelta might be a decent option.

Keep your eye on it. It’ll be super volatile in the beginning, but they have some great announcements lined up. I’ll update on this thread as I know more.

    @Block$$$

    What are your thoughts on current macro economic factors?

    In the US tax law changes mostly good for growth of the markets however wondering what the feeling is about treating crypto to crypto exchanges as the sale of securities with tax implications and how in the world they will track that?

    Coinbase / Gemini are opening up the investment max to 10M from 100k and being vetted by J.P. Morgan and others to handle institutional money. Goldman Sachs creating crypto trading desk. TD Ameritrade opening up more exposure for larger retail investors etc. all bullish to me for 2018.

    Coinbase adding additional new tokens in 2018 also bullish as it will create more press and awareness.

    I know you’re very bullish on BCH and having seen Ver’s coordinated marketing effort on CNBC and other media pushing bch timed to the coinbase release I’m inclined to be bullish on bch as well. btc had some 300k unconfirmed transactions and huge fees all bullish indicators for bch perhaps with a possibility of bch btc trading in parity later this year. However lightning network is almost fully operational and once it is implemented (in 60 days as far as i could tell on github?) I would think a huge btc push to 50k at that point and bch dip. What’s your take?

    I see the US increasing volume in 2018 however concerned that South Korea and other countries may clamp down. Looks like ico ban and other possible tax implications. What’s Silicon Valley insiders general feeling towards global macro factors?
