New York, NY
Forbes recommends looking for cryptocurrency trading for less than a dollar. They believe that’s important because “smaller numbers can more easily double and triple than larger numbers can.” Ripple is a perfect example. A $1,000 investment in January 2017 would have ballooned to over $609,523 in just 12 months. Another cryptocurrency that has this “Ripple effect” is the Ethereum Funding Token, or EFT for short. As an endowment, this EFT is the World’s 1st collectible solo crowdfunding Ethereum token. The EFT is provided in exchange for donating to someone in need. This ICO represents goodwill support for contributors to exchange EFTs on various exchanges. Bonus tokens will be provided until June 30th.
