Who Can Launch A Cryptocurrency?
Anyone can launch a cryptocurrency provided they have the capital to undertake the business. With barely $150,000, one can afford host, technology, legal consent, and initial advertisement to start with.
And per the net worth of Nana Kwame Bediako, that is chicken change.
What Does It Take To Launch A Cryptocurrency?
It takes advanced techy knowledge to create and launch a cryptocurrency but without that, one can hire a blockchain developer. After that be ready to commit your time, money, and other resources.
The main tasks among the others are; creating a blockchain, modifying an existing blockchain, and creating a coin on a blockchain.
What Is The Right Mean To Launch A Cryptocurrency?
ICO ( Initial Coin Offering) is the easiest and cheapest way any investor can begin his crypto funding and launch journey.
Initial Coin Offering is the crypto term coined by the business term Initial Public Offering ( IPO ) which most mega ventures do to fund and launch their business.
ICO structured alongside a white paper gives potential investors the zeal to buy some of the project’s tokens.
ICO promises the buyers a stake or a fixed amount of return from the business if the funding meets expectations, however, if it fails, then the harvested fund may be returned to the project’s investors.
Note: Because this is the easiest way to fund, anyone can launch an ICO and later abscond with your money. Make sure any ICO you are contributing to has real and accountable people behind it and also the product’s leads’ history with crypto or blockchain.
Does One Need License To Operate A Cryptocurrency?
Yes. Though that and its procedures depend on the jurisdiction your company will be operating from, there are still a set of common requirements one must meet in every jurisdiction regardless. They are the following:
- FULL compliant with anti-money laundering regulations and policies.
- Partnership with a bank in your jurisdiction to set up an exchange to fiat currency.
- Establishing party’s verification ID.
Does A Cryptocurrency Investor Need Government Approval?
According to research, crypto investors have little to no protection in the market against property loss from the government.
They are not issued or backed by any government not even in the US. And so, no government approves cryptocurrency but since it deals with money, banks of states or countries are involved to ensure some regulations.
Is The Freedom Coin Fraud?
Concluding from all points listed above, the only one that the Freedom coin falls short of per information available in the bank license to operate, on which the Bank Of Ghana issued a statement.
But this shouldn’t be treated lightly.
We wait for the Bank Of Ghana to clear the Freedom Coin of any suspicions for us to call it trusted. Until then, be the judge and make the decision you deemed right.
