200 Steem Sponsored Writing Contest - Vertex Market

in #contest2 years ago (edited)

An initial coin offering or ICO is a way of fundraising that trades the future cryptocurrencies for those cryptos that are already well-established such as bitcoin, ethereum, litecoin, dash or FIAT currencies. Investors fund these ICOs in order to get a higher return on their investment when the token is listed on exchanges and be available for trading.

During 2017, a significant exponential growth was observed in the crypto market and many investors benefited from the extreme volatile market. However, more than half of the ICOs were designed to raise the funds only with no clear purpose and it led to the loss of $2.76 billion. Thus the vetting is quite a challenge for the investors to evaluate which ICO to invest in to get returns on their investments because many new ICOs are coming up in the crypto market. There are some key factors that may lead to the success of an ICO, such as  it should solve real problems, the team should be credible, and should demonstrate commitment.

What is Vertex Market?

Vertex Market is the decentralized ICO aftermarket platform that makes this vetting process easier for you. The goal of the Vertex Market is to make sure that the investor participates in a genuine ICO and gets return on their investment. In the Vertex aftermarket, the ICOs that are successful, or have greater chance of success and likely to be listed to exchanges, can be bought. The ICO will be listed on the Vertex Market after an extensive vetting process.

What does Vertex Market offer to the investors?

Often times, investors find it difficult to participate in an ICO because the tokens are already sold out during the private sale, and never become public. Vertex Market offers an opportunity to the investors to buy tokens even after they are sold out, under much better conditions and price than the one during the ICO.

What does Vertex Market offer to the ICOs?

An ICO that meets the Vertex evaluation criteria will be bought by Vertex and listed on the aftermarket and will be open for Vertex investors to invest their funds in the project. The ICO will get free advertisement on the Vertex platform and Vertex Seal of Approval. ICOs will also get support and consultation from Vertex.

Type of ICOs approved by Vertex Market

Vertex will offer both utility and security tokens on the platform. Tokens that are related to gambling or any addictive substances will not be approved by Vertex.

How does the Vertex platform work?

Vertex platform will be powered by Vertex tokens. These tokens will be used to invest in the vetted tokens; thus, investors who wish to make investment in an ICO project should own Vertex tokens, which will be used to purchase the desired ICO tokens. Vertex will get the ICO tokens at a discounted price at the time of ICO sale, and Vertex token holders can only purchase these vetted tokens after the public sale is over.

The Vertex Token

Vertex tokens (VTEX) are ERC-20 tokens on Ethereum blockchain. The total supply of VTEX is 300 million and 60% of it will be available for public sale. 

The Vertex Wallet

Vertex will offer its own ERC-20 compatible wallet, where the users will store their ERC-20 tokens. The wallets will be secured with private keys and users accounts with 2FA.

I am really grateful to @aschatria who has created this app for me on github.


Thanks for sharing this interesting platform, i like the concept which is double useful, once providinng some quality rating of ICOs and then improving accessibility. It means, the platform itself will participate in the icos to gain the tokens to sell on later?

Having serious power issues. Happy I could still make an entry

Here's my link. https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@donnest/meet-vertex-the-future-and-solution-to-ico-s

You did a brilliant work up there earnestly.

I like the Vertex Market project. I really believe that it is important for investors to receive aid on which ICO's have the best project and which ones are more likely to succeed.

Good information what you are going through, and especially the contest. I will surely be participating.


Yes, that's what interests me the most about Vertex. I will look forward to your entry :)

@monajam..... I think vertex will surely solve problems related to ICOs and it will also be a great benefit for ICOs investors as they will be able know how genuine such ICOs are before investing.

I can't really wait to take part in this contest 😀

This was such a wonderful contest. I was not yet conversant with the app created by @aschatria. I promise to get more used to it with ntime, I just hope it does not affect my performance.

Here is the link to my post


I will try to submit an entry soon. Thanks @monajam.

Looking forward to it.
Do join the airdrop now because it will end soon.

Sure. I have joined the airdrop but I'm a bit confused because after joining their telegram, I went back to check for my referral link and how to login to their official platform to get my referral link which I couldn't @monajam. Please help.

The airdrop will end on 6th September, so try to share your referral link, as you will get 6 tokens for each referral. They said they will send the tokens after 6th September to the ETH wallet.

I'm working towards the refferals. Thanks.

Here is my entry with the Video Bonus, thanks @monajam and Vertex for this Contest!


(I use your app)

Hello @monajam...
Thanks for this contest, I hope these word length rules apply because it would be unfair if some of us work our ass out trying to limit the flow of our creativity 😂😂and some others just let it out and we get Judged equally.
I'm just appealing for a fair play and let max 1200 words be max 1200words.
Thanks sir ...

This will be the second of your contest I'll be participating in...😏

The decision will be their's :) But write as you like; I think 1200 words are OK, but I will also ask them to make sure.

Below is my entry for the 200 Steem Sponsored Writing Contest - Vertex Market


I posted using your app

Happy to find this contest. Hmm, are there any other aftermarkets in the crypto space?

So far as I know, this is the first aftermarket :)

You are welcome :)
Results will be published on Monday, next week.

@monajam This is my publication on Vertex. Vertex seemed to me a platform with great potential because it will allow people to invest their money safely.

Yes, I hope so. It will do all the research about an ICO that we should do, so will make things easier for us :)

it is learn for new comer.hope we learn.
