ICO Initial Coin Offering Vs. IPO Initial Public Offering is our trading and investing topics for today. ICO simply means Initial Coin Offering while IPO simply means Initial Public Offering. So what’s the difference? a lot.

In investing world, we have different terms used that are appropriate in IPO or Initial Public Offering whereas some terms are not appropriate in Initial Coin Offering or ICO. Example, in investing in stocks there are dividends, while in ICO investing and trading in cryptocurrencies, the term “dividends” is not present.


I have experience in both investing in IPO and ICO. Investing in ICO is quiet fun and interesting. I invest in Electroneum and buy some ripple coins by trading Bitcoin to other fastest growing cryptocurrencies. Here in our country, (Philippines), I usually buy stocks and IPO stocks at COLFinancial. The broker where I invest and trade stocks. I usually trade Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies at Kraken.

While in ICO, I usually searched new ICO, then browse the websites, analyze the plans, schemes, goal and objectives of the ICO and I review the offline paper.

Maybe you will ask, which one do you think is the most profitable (ICO or IPO). In investing, it is up the investor how can he make his investing ventures become profitable. Thus, knowing is the part of the game. The more you know the more profits you can make.
