Gains Associates is a group of friends who are passionate about new technologies. Gains Associates took an early interest in Bitcoin and started investing in ICOs in late 2017.
At the time, the ICO market was in a frenzy. Public sales were often oversubscribed and people were competing for small investing spots. Therefore, pools emerged. They were groups of retail investors grouping their contributions to be able to negotiate better terms. However, it was very risky because most pool admins were anonymous which meant they could easily disappear with people’s hard earned money.
This is why Gains Associates decided to create their own community.
