1/ For those who were not in the #Chainlink ICO, some food for thoughts around the hype back in 2017:
2/ There was only 2649 token sales participants Image
3/ $29MM out of the $32MM crowdsale was sold during pre-sale Image
4/ It caused a shock to crowdsale participants because they aimed $10MM pre-sale max at first Image
5/ They later aimed at $16MM available for crowdsale, far from the $2.7MM Image
6/ The $29.3MM left the crowdsale participant less than 4.68 blocks worth of transactions to fit into. Image
7/ The presale had 100 ETH minimum buy-in Image
8/ People pooled together to be in pre-sale, and some pool exceeded their own cap Image
9/ Individual cap for crowdsale was 7 $ETH at 2000 $LINK per $ETH but they ended up giving 30% more, 2600 $LINK per $ETH Image
10/ The ICO price per $LINK was around $0.11 Image
11/ At 2600 $LINK per $ETH, and 7 $ETH cap, someone who maxed out received 18200 $LINK for $1,995
12/ At today’s price, these 18,200 $LINK would be worth around $43,500 or around $73,710 at ATH. Not a bad ROI.
