Mining crypto or investing in start ups

Today mining is only available to serious business entities, as the period for return on investment has grown upto 10-15 months. But later, you can't keep on making money with the purchased mining equipment, as it almost instantly goes outdated due to the increasing complexity of calculations. Taking into account the risk of price drop for crypto-currencies, equipment failures and other risks, it is no longer possible for an ordinary person to find a niche. Mining is a very competitive, huge bitcoin farms in China are growing at an enormous rate, taking away every opportunity to earn in this area.

However, there is another way to generate profit with cryptocurrency. It's by investing in start-ups. The so-called ICO. The point is that a company issues its own crypto-coins, which are an equivalent to shares or a stock option for the goods that the company will produce. Afterwards everything is simple, if the ICO organizers manage to raise funds, then the company pays dividends to token holders. In addition, the token price usually rises together with the growth of the company's capitalization.
All ICOs can be broken down into two types. The first one exists only in the virtual world, these are various blockchain platforms, programs and online services. Investing in them, the risk of losing investment is great, although the income and returns can also be significant. This risk is due to the fact that such companies have nothing but a programming code. If the platform or service has not found its customers, then this code can't be used anywhere. But the advantage of virtual companies is that they are the most innovative, and innovations imply large profits. This is how venture capitalists work. They lose money in 9 out of 10 enterprises, but the only one successful enterprise brings them much more money than they had lost.

The second type of ICO is actually about an investment in the real sector of the economy. People engaged in business always need investments and an ICO is just a new way of attracting them. Currently a huge number of companies carry out ICOs in all areas of the economy, from timber logging, real estate and hotels to completely unusual ones offering stock options for sand or zirconium oxide. The advantage here is that the loss of investment is less likely than in the first case.

There is an ICO that combines advantages of both types: technological innovations in the real economic sector. "Synthestech" is a unique phenomenon on the ICO market. The raised funds will be used for creation of real assets. This is scientific and analytical equipment. What "Synthestech" has been working on is absolutely unique, low-energy nuclear transformation or cold transmutation. This phenomenon was recently recognized by the orthodox science, and is very promising. The synthesis of artificial platinum from low-value metals can completely overturn the economy.
