|Name of Coin (Link to Website)||Brief Description||Dates*|
|Stupid-simple, which we like: “Smart contracts + Visa.” As in the Visa card.||Opens on May 2, 2017.||@tokencard_io|
|“Token as a Service” – what looks like a “fund of funds” for investing in blockchain technologies. (Our writeup is here: TaaS on Metacoin.) NOTE: Not available to United States citizens.||CLOSED April 27. Raised a shade under $8m US.||@taasfund|
|This coin aims to eliminate the barrier between emerging fintech and the developing world, using biometric scanning to confirm coin ownership and purchases.||CLOSED April 27. Raised more than $5m US.||@humaniq_co|
|A portfolio of apps, in one token that pays back to its owners.||OPEN; Closes April 30, 2017||@theapptrade|
|“A global and decentralised money platform and based on peer-to-peer IOUs and built on blockchain technology.”||Public pre-sale: April 25 through May 15, 2017||@sikobanetwork|
|Our quick take: they’re a little bit of everything. Back-office for global finance, wallet, debit card. (Nifty “Bounty program,” which we joined recently and you should check out.)||Pre-sale starts April 13. Public ICO April 25 through May 31.||@ex_scudo|
|What? A coin backed by an actual asset – in this case, a synthetic Zirconium Dioxide – with a quite unique buyback program. We’re either excited or confused, or both. (Promise to write more about this one soon.)||Pre-sale starts April 25.||@zrcoin|
|To us, this appears to be a little like LendingClub or Bitbond, which we covered recently.||CLOSED –
Currently trading on Bittrex.
