ICO's are bullshit

in crypto •  last year

So my subject line is pretty direct because twice now I have been unable to participate in ICO's and I call bullshit. The first ICO (BAT) I did everything correct, even upped my gas limit to "Fast AF". I received a confirmation from Etherscan but my ETH was returned to me nonetheless. Today again with (status) I clicked generate transaction the minute it hit the block, Gas- FAST AF and still nothing.

Walks like a duck, quacks like a duck. It's a fucking duck.

@altcoinusa $ETh $Status

UPDATE: Well guys I spoke too soon. Apparently I did get into the Status ICO. The transaction went through 5 hours after I hit generate. So I guess I might owe an apology... Good fucking luck, What takes 5 hours these days?

I think you may mean STATUS. I also ran into this problem. I tried with both BAT and STATUS and nothing on either. This really does show a scaling problem with ethereum IMO. In a global market, there will be this many transactions all the time, not just during ICOs.

you are correct. I did mean STATUS. Thank you for being a spelling nazi. just kidding I should spell-check my work. good catch

·

And I agree with you completely about the scaling issue.

Shit happens! Hopefuly it will speed up! Today is interesting day for cryptos...

@rlavie985 agreed 100% great post

Ask my business partner, he made it. His handle is AltcoinLife

I guess you have to be like Jsnip4 to make great money in an ICO.

Same here...couldn't get in either one.

Hmmm... Beware with some crypto currencies ! ;p Thank you for this post !

Lots of new money coming into the market. Companies doing ICOs without programming right. More and more often. I still think we need to better regulate ICOs

Nice post. i upvote and start to follow :)
