I welcome you all once again to this Wonderful CRYPTOCURRENCY NETWORK BLOG, as usual ! all of you know’s, I always carry you along with any information about good crypto related projects through my blog.


An initial coin offering (ICO) or initial currency offering is a type of crowdfunding using cryptocurrencies. In an ICO, a quantity of cryptocurrency is sold in the form of “tokens” (“coins”) to speculators or investors, in exchange for legal tender or other cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin or ethereum. The tokens sold are promoted as future functional units of currency if or when the ICO’s funding goal is met and the project launches.

An ICO can be a source of capital for startup companies. ICOs allow startups to avoid regulatory compliance and intermediaries such as venture capitalists, banks and stock exchanges. ICOs may fall outside existing regulations, depending on the nature of the project, or be banned altogether in some jurisdictions, such as China and South Korea.

ICOs have been prone to scams and securities law violations. Fewer than half of all ICOs survive four months after the offering, while almost half of ICOs sold in 2017 failed by February 2018. Despite their record of failure and the falling prices of cryptocurrencies, a record $7 billion was raised via ICO from January-June 2081

The first token sale (also known as an ICO) was held by Mastercoin in July 2013. Ethereum raised money with a token sale in 2014, raising 3,700 BTC in its first 12 hours, equal to approximately $2.3 million at the time. An ICO was held by Karmacoin in April 2014 for its Karmashares project.

ICOs and token sales became popular in 2017. There were at least 18 websites tracking ICOs before mid-year. In May, the ICO for a new web browser called Brave generated about $35 million in under 30 seconds. Messaging app developer Kik’s September 2017 ICO raised nearly $100 million. At the start of October 2017, ICO coin sales worth $2.3 billion had been conducted during the year, more than ten times as much as in all of 2016. As of November 2017, there were around 50 offerings a month, with the highest-grossing ICO as of January 2018, being Filecoin raising $257 million (and $200 million of that within the first hour of their token sale).

Kik had previously issued $50 million in tokens called “Kin” to institutional investors, and sought to raise an additional $125 million from the public. In connection with this ICO, an unidentified third party executed a phishing scam by circulating a fake URL for the offering through social media.

By the end of 2017, ICOs had raised almost 40 times as much capital as they had raised in 2016, although still amounting to less than two percent of the capital raised by IPOs. According to industry newsletter Cointelegraph, companies raised around $6 billion via ICOs in 2017; 37% of that amount was made by only 20 ICOs. Already by February, 2018, an estimated 46% of the 2017 ICOs had failed.

ICOs are sometimes called “token sales”. Amy Wan, a crowdfunding and syndication lawyer, described the coin in an ICO as “a symbol of ownership interest in an enterprise — a digital stock certificate” stating that they are likely subject to regulation as securities in the U.S. under the Howey test.

Ethereum is (as of February 2018) the leading blockchain platform for ICOs with more than 80% market share. Tokens are generally based on the Ethereum ERC-20 standard. According to Cointelegraph the Ethereum network ICOs have resulted in considerable phishing, Ponzi schemes, and other scams, accounting for about 10% of ICOs.

On January 30, 2018, Facebook banned advertisements for ICOs as well as for cryptocurrencies and binary options. By April 9, 2018, ICO advertising has been banned not only by Facebook, but by Twitter, Google, and MailChimp.

In reference with the motion of this article, Today! I will be presenting you a particular undisputed project called:NEOGAME

What is NEOGAME?

Neogame’s mission is to transform the global gambling market into a non-profit and no-host model create a space where nobody makes money on games and nobody is interested to chase problem gamers. Neogame is a new lottery game that does not serve any beneficiaries: it has a zero house edge and no one will be able to access the funds: the only way to get them is to guess the winning lottery numbers.

The idea of the new Neogame project is to create a lottery that does not have an organizer, and is not a business unit at all. Neogame will be governed solely by a lottery smart contract, which autonomously executes the game algorythm. The smart-contract holds funds, gets random numbers and distributes prizes in an absolutely clear linear manner.

This way Neogame eliminates hosts, intermediaries and any business people from the game. There are only players playing with each other and the lottery smart contract that makes the no-commission game possible.

Neogame will function using Ticket Tokens (TKT) as both lottery tickets and prize fund currency. The supply is limited to 500 million tokens, and we will work to increase their value. When tokens value grows, the prize fund grows proportionally. If token value increases significantly, the jackpot size can be enormous.


Fully autonomous

Based on Ethereum smart contracts, the lottery will exist as long as blockchain exists. It doesn’t need centralized management, it will just gather funds from tickets sold and distribute them all among winners according to a fair and clear algorithm. Neogame will not serve any beneficiaries: nobody has access to its funds other than by correctly guessing WINNING lottery numbers.

Scalable Jackpots

Neogame will function using Ticket Tokens (TKT) as both lottery tickets and prize fund currency. The supply is limited to 500 million tokens, and we will work to increase their value. When tokens value grows, the prize fund grows proportionally. If token value increases significantly, the jackpot size can be enormous.

Zero Commission

No lottery in the world offers such conditions for players as Neogame. It gives all raised funds to winners, while other lotteries usually leave 50% of funds for themselves and their projects. Moreover it’s up to 7 times more likely to win a jackpot with Neogame than with most popular lotteries. It is fully anonymous and winners can take their prizes immediately.

Waiver of ownership rights

The project team does not claim any ownership rights over Neogame. After the project is launched, the lottery will belong to the public: lottery players' and token holders' community. However nobody will have ownership rights over Neogame as well as nobody can affect the game.

Ethical Mission

Gambling addiction and problem gambling is a worldwide social issue, and this project is that designed to fight against irresponsible gambling. When the world gambling market converts to a nonprofit model, nobody will chase up gambling addicts anymore. This is our effort to make the world a better and happier place.

The Competition

Check out this table below for the comparison of Neogame with the current market leaders

The TKT Tokens

Token determinations The lottery will utilize its own cryptographic mazuma - Ticket Token (TKT) – which depends on the Ethereum blockchain.

Ticket Tokens are utility tokens that have the following 3 functions:

Lottery tickets. The player buys tokens, selects a digital combination through a decentralized application and sends tokens to a lottery smart contract.

Assets included in the prize Fund. The prize pool consists of tokens, tickets, and all prizes are denominated in TKT. The prize pool is very easy to change as far as the token itself does, which allows you to scale the size of the jackpot as a price increase marker.

Cryptanalysis that can be traded with predictable exchange rate fluctuations. TKT will be registered via cryptocurrency exchange and its value is expected to become volatile and be subject to the tracked effects of the token's growth factor.

TKT tokens are issued under the ERC20 standard, and are good with any wallet that backings Ethereum-predicated tokens. This enables the task to work uninterruptedly and inconclusively on the Ethereum blockchain, autonomous of some other outer factor.

Outflow There will be a constrained emanation of 500 million tokens. The savvy contract does not take into consideration extra token discharges later on.

Flow of tokens as a digital money The dissemination of tokens is conceivable expeditiously after the token deal. Posting on a main cryptoexchange is mundane inside 2 months after the token deal. A ultimate conclusion on the particular decision of trade will be made after the token deal.

Token Details

Start: 30 September 2018

End:30 October 2018

Cap: 100 000 ETH

(23 231 000 USD)

Goal: 2 000 ETH

(464 620 USD)

Price: 1 TKT = 0.00025 ETH

Token Development Drivers

The token deal will offer a rate of 4,000 tokens for each ETH, which will elevate to roughly 10 pennies for every token at the date of Whitepaper distribution. This is the underlying cost for a lottery ticket, and will be liable to changes because of free market activity.


There will be limited emissions of 500 million tokens. Smart contracts do not allow for additional emission of tokens in the future.

Token Distribution

Sales of tokens (80%) 400 million

Team (10%) 50 million

Advisor (5%) 25 million

Bounty and drop water (5%) 25 million

Circulation as a prize

The prize pool consists of TKT tokens, and its value will be volatile to the same extent as the token's exchange rate Using Blockchain:Ethereum network,Token Contract Crowdsale contracts,and Lottery contract

Ethereum Network

Ticket Token generation and turnover, crowdsale process, and in the operation of Neogame as a lottery are powered by Ethereum Network, a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts. It makes Neogame run exactly as programmed without any possibility of crashing, censorship, fraud or third party interference for the entire blockchain lifetime.

Token Contract

Ticket Tokens will be issued in Ethereum Network using the ERC20 token standard and are compatible with any wallet that supports Ethereum-based tokens. They are used in three different capacities: as a tradable cryptocurrency, as lottery tickets and a prize pool asset. The supply of tokens is limited to TKT 500 million and no additional emissions are allowed by the token smart contract.

Crowdsale contract

Neogame fundraising will be held using a crowdsale smart contract. Contributors will send funds, in Ether, to the smart contract address. All assets collected on the smart contract will be frozen until soft cap is reached. If during crowdsale the soft cap is not reached, the smart contract will send all money back to the contributors

Lottery contract

Neogame is truly independent of any human control. It is governed exclusively by the lottery smart contract that autonomously invokes the game logic. The smart contract keeps funds, manages drawings, generates the lottery’s random numbers and gives away prizes in an absolutely clear manner. The content of the smart contract and all the transactions are kept in the blockchain and are easily traceable by anyone.
