What Is the Tulip ICO? – The Merkle

By JP Buntinx    October 5, 2017

Self-professed financial experts often refer to the Bitcoin price momentum as “tulip mania”. After all, they hope to see this bubble burst before it can put them out of a job. Bitcoin and altcoins are not in a bubble, though, and they aren’t going away anytime soon either. The Tulip is an upcoming ICO which seemingly aims to poke fun at these experts for not realizing how things are evolving right now.


While it is true the current Initial Coin Offering craze is eerily similar to the tulip mania of the seventeenth century, it remains to be seen how things will play out. The tulip market eventually crashed and the product became virtually worthless. The same may eventually happen to a lot of ICO projects, as very few of them will actually succeed in delivering on their initial promise. All the money in the world couldn’t change that fact, nor should it.

One project focusing on tulips is none other than The Tulip ICO. Given all of the remarks by financial “experts” on how cryptocurrency and ICOs are two tulip markets waiting to pop, it was only a matter of time before someone created an ICO project known as The Tulip. Its website sure looks professional and may even persuade some people to invest. Very few individuals conduct their due diligence when looking at initial coin offerings, after all.

What The Tulip offers is not something we haven’t seen or heard before. In fact, it is by far one of the more comical ICOs we have come across in a while. The project describes itself as “blurring the lines between art, technology, and human psychology.” It’s got an artistic touch, but we all know none of this need be taken seriously whatsoever. Indeed, it is a project designed to illustrate a point and scoff at the self-professed experts who think they know it all.
