The meteoric rise of cryptocurrencies has brought with it a new wave of trading and investing through the blockchain medium. Nowadays, it is no longer required to have a degree in economics and a keen business acumen to become an investor.
Still, trading and investing cryptocurrencies does carry a substantial risk, due to the inherent volatility of the market and the abundance of scams in the cryto world.
So investing, while easier and more accessible than before, still carries a certain degree of uncertainty and potential loss.
Darico: supporting crypto-investors through the blockchain
Cryptocurrencies, and all that they stand for, are somewhat risky propositions. Some high-profile scams where investors have lost significant amounts of money serve to highlight the inherent dangers of investing or trading in these financial devices.
Darico’s marketing blurb says that the ecosystem ‘provides investors with access to trusted sources of information, and to all of the tools they need to make informed investment decisions and to integrate cryptocurrencies into their everyday lives.’

This ICO’s presence on social media is not particularly significant at this point in time.
Platforms for investing & trading cryptocurrencies are quite common on the blockchain ecosystem these days. There are literally dozens of similarly-themed such platforms currently operating, such as DeHedge, Coinvest, and Pecunio to name but a few.
This means that Darico is likely to become another name in the pool of investment-related ICOs, with little to make it stand out.

Blockchain-based investment platforms are a dime a dozen these days, so it’s hard to see how another one can make a difference.
There is nothing intrinsically wrong with Darico’s proposition, other than it’s a quite common concept.
