This is Tai Zen and I’m broadcasting out of the Long Island Railroad and I’m heading from Long Island to Penn Station in New York City. If you guys can take a look around, there’s the city right there. New York is an older city, so look at some of the old piping and wires and cables. It’s kind of dirty. It’s an old city.
Anyways, what I wanted to talk to you guys about in this video guys is “What is an ICO?”. “What is the difference between a cryptocurrency ICO versus a stock IPO?” They’re both the same thing but there are a few differences. So let me break it down to you guys so that you guys understand what it is.
A stock IPO is when a company wants to go public and they want to raise money in America, in other countries too. But you have a company or business that wants to go public, you want to raise money so you have an initial public offering and what happens is people who have a certain amount of money can buy into the shares of the company.
So for example, when Facebook came out with their IPO, there was a bunch of people, they got rich off of that. When Dell computers, when Yahoo, when Google, when everybody comes out with their…
So what happens is, an IPO, the purpose of it is to raise money so that the company can expand, they have proven that they have a product or a service that makes money and now they want to expand their businesses across the globe or across the country, so they go out into the public and they offer shares of their company so that…
Alright so what happens is whenever a company raises an IPO, they issue shares in their company, and if you want to, you can buy shares of them and loan money to the company or the business and then when they start becoming profitable, the value of those shares that you own will increase and that’s how you make the money. So that’s how they do an IPO.
The problem and the downside with IPO are that when you do that, only a small group of people in America can participate and join that IPO process and…So, anyway, the downside to these stock IPOs is that it is rigged so that only the rich people can get involved.
So for example, if you believe that Facebook, when it came out, was a good company and that was worth investing your money into and you wanted to invest in it, you were not allowed if you did not have a million-dollar net worth in America, and make two hundred fifty thousand dollars a year.
So those two requirements alone will pretty much eliminate about over 99% of the American public. So just those two rules alone will prevent you. So every time they come out with a new company that you believe has a lot of potentials to grow and make a lot of money…
For example, like Leonfu.com and I, we strongly believed that Airbnb, the website that rents out people’s extra rooms in their houses as hotel rooms, and the taxi service called Uber, we believed that when those companies go public they are going to make a ton of money whoever can get involved.
The problem is people like myself and Leonfu.com and all our friends, none of us has a million-dollar net worth and we do not have that kind of money so we are barred. They do not allow the little guys like us to participate in that IPO when it happens. So that’s the reason why the stock IPO system sucks because only the rich people can participate in.
The middle class and the lower class people cannot participate in it, they say that the reason why they do that is to protect the lower class and middle-class people. Those rules are there to protect us and that to me is a bunch of bullshit. They’re rules to help the rich get richer.
The reason why I am a big supporter of the cryptocurrency ICO is that a cryptocurrency ICO is the same thing as the stock IPO, but there’s one major difference. The major difference is that anybody, anywhere in the world, it does not matter in your class, your ethnicity, how much money you have, how much money you make, how much money you are worth, none of that bullshit matters because whoever can send them the Bitcoins can participate in the ICO.
So if you follow this channel for a while now, you guys know that Leonfu.com and I, we both invested into the Ethereum ICO, and we invested into the Lisk ICO, we invest into several different ICO and we’re just sitting back and waiting for this to go on the market and see how much they are worth.
So this is the beauty of it, you guys are that cryptocurrency for the first time has allowed the lower class and the middle-class people to invest into businesses and projects that they have a strong belief will succeed.
So that doesn’t mean that you will… like I have friends that invested in Factom, which is doing the land titles and property deeds and things like that to record land titles and property titles. And the reason why he chose that was that he comes from the mortgage industry and he understands about titles and properties and deeds and things like that.
I’m going to invest in the Slock.It. The Slock. It is the first time that they’re going to marry the software to real-world hardware. So we connect hardware devices out in the real world into the Ethereum blockchain.
So that’s going to be a big thing guys, and you can watch my Slock. It videos to learn more about that. But that’s, I just want to make this video guys share with you guys the benefits and the beauty and the advantages of participating in the legitimate ICO, not the bogus, scam ICOs.
I hope that this video helps you guys understand that nowhere else in the world are you going to be able unless you’re just part of that 1% of the public that has a million-dollar net worth and makes over 250 thousand a year. Otherwise how else would you be able to participate in an investment where it pays you 500% return, 2000% return.
There’s nowhere else in the world you’re going to be able to do that unless you participate in the IPO, or in this case, you participate in a cryptocurrency ICO. I hope this video is helpful and show how cryptocurrency has made it possible for the little guys like us to invest into the ICO that is going to pay us 5x, 10x, 20x. Don’t be scare. If you want to make big money, you have to be willing to take the risk.
So thanks for watching this video guys. If you guys like the video, give me a thumbs up. If you guys don’t like the video, give me a thumbs down. See you guys in the future video. Oh, by the way, guys, somebody asked me one time why I made a video in the middle of nowhere because it’s fun.
