ICOs Are So Much More Than They Appear.
We know that ICOs are a lot of work, and it's easy to be tempted by shortcuts. But those shortcuts could cost your ICO in the future. That's why Decentra is dedicated to protecting your ICO from the legal and marketing pitfalls that so many ICOs face.
Also, when investing in an ICO, it's easy to get swept up in a beautiful whitepaper that promises the moon, but what are your rights as an investor?
Blockchain is a new technology, and with all emerging technologies, only time will reveal the true applications that gain traction. Blockchain is so much more than distributed ledgers. Blockchain is a way to transform the way humans record, transact, and interact with each other.
The Co-Founders, Brian Konradi and T.C. Waugh worked shoulder-to-shoulder (as CEO and Foundation Director, respectively) during the successful Pre-ICO of Incremint, the world's first decentralized escrow platform.
Brian's legal experience and T.C.'s marketing experience complement each other perfectly, allowing them to help their clients tell their stories with clarity and at the same time avoiding any potential legal pitfalls.
On their global roadshow, they developed a broad network of experienced blockchain and cryptocurrency professionals.
And out of this network, Decentra Group was born.
