Fintech Company QUOINE ICO Platform on QRYPTOS

According to PRNewswire, the global fintech company QUOINE, is launching an ICO platform that will be an all-in-one solution for those looking to launch an ICO. The “ICO Mission Control” from the fintech leader will be an ICO platform where users can participate in ICOs and receive settlement of their contribution immediately. The QUOINE Senior Vice President and Head of Operations Seth Melamed said, “ICO Mission Control was really born from our experience of running our own QASH ICO in November 2017…” The company is now accepting applications from interested parties who have the desire to take their ICOs to the next level, suggesting those parties should email listings@quoine.com for all ICO service enquiries.

Scam ICO Ads Still Found Present On Google

The Merkle reported that many ICO scams are still ongoing through Google Ads. The news site used NEX ICO as an example of a project that scammers were presenting fake websites of, claiming to be NEX ICO, as bad actors. Google banned ICO related advertisements largely on the premise that ICO advertisements are more easily subject to scams than other advertisements. It’s unknown whether the issue is understood by Google or not.
