Invest In Friend

After a careful review of the ICO, we hereby conclude that Friend is working well its way to being successful but it needs to come up with a more disciplined strategy to raise funding. This is because the ICO failed to launch its token sale as per the initial plan. Other aspects of the ICO sounds appealing. The objective of the ICO is a little complicated but workable. We believe by making right adjustment, the ICO will do well. We suggest people should invest in the ICO but after conducting some basic research about the prospect of the ICO.
