    Changelly and ChangeNOW controversy

    One recent example of a customer seeking justice by trying to expose an exchange that allegedly wronged him is the case of Bitcointalk user ni23457. He states that the ChangeNOW exchange has been withholding his funds for months now, without a valid reason. After scouring the internet for information about the platform and its leaders, the user pointed out to its connection to other crypto businesses.

  • ICO rating site ICOholder caught red handed, willingly promoting SCAM ICO Tkeycoin (TCD)

    ICO rating site ICOholder caught red handed, willingly promoting SCAM ICO Tkeycoin (TCD)

    It is important that the crypto community identify and dissociate from the ‘bad apples’ in our midst. We looked into this and were also shocked to learn that ICOmarks (ICOmarks.com) - an outfit that claims to “research” new ICOs - also falls horribly short of the mark. We discuss this and more in this blog post.

  • Interview with Justas Pikelis of Monetha

    Interview with Justas Pikelis of Monetha

    I recently had the chance to sit down with Justas Pikelis, the co-founder of Monetha. We had a lengthy conversation about what Monetha is doing, and what contributed to the success of their ICO. I think you'll find his insights into ICO marketing and community building very interesting, especially if you are considering your own ICO, STO, or TGE in the near future.

    How is Cointelligence different?

    We’re not like the strict professor at university who likes giving low grades, we just believe in fairness and it would be wrong to deceive the investors by giving false ratings to ICO projects.

    Tech journalists and responsibility

    Due diligence isn't just in the hands of would-be ICO investors. It falls on all of us. Journalists. ICO raters. Crypto experts. Bloggers. We all have a responsibility to research what we're talking about, to dig deeper when something doesn't seem to be right, and to call-out the lies, scams, and corruption that we see.

    The road more travelled

    It seems that schisms will always happen, and now we have the schism which occurred at block 478,559, when there was a permanent divergence from the previous version of the blockchain, and nodes running previous versions ceased to be accepted by the newest version. Welcome to the world, Bitcoin Cash!

  • In data we trust - but which data should we trust?

    In data we trust - but which data should we trust?

    Right now the cryptosphere is largely still ruled by the brains and hearts of entrepreneurs. People create projects because they really love the idea they want to broach to the world, and they then use their intelligence to make the best of their offer. The machines will take over sooner or later however because that's just the way it is.

  • Where should you publish your crypto blog?

    Where should you publish your crypto blog?

    For companies that host their blog on Medium, users only spend a short amount of time on the company’s website. Instead of staying to read blog articles, users are sent off to another website. If a user arrived to a company’s website via a Google organic search, sending the user to another website may actually hurt that website’s ranking.
