Truth be told, I hadn't known of Telegram until I joined the crypto space. There's no denying that if you are floating an ICO you have to open a Telegram channel. Apparently, over 95% of ICOs rely on Telegram to get information out about their project.
So why is Telegram so popular? One major reason is because previous channels were filled with spamming and spoofing. Now, the number of subscribers in an ICO's telegram channel provides a measure of how much hype the project is generating. Another reason is that joining a Telegram channel for high profile ICOs will give one an exclusive opportunity to land on the whitelist.
Now, if you have participated in any ICO, then you have to join their Telegram channel -if they have one. In there you will find comments, questions and all manner of price speculations regarding that particular token.
Let me hear your thoughts about your experience with Telegram in regards to ICOs.
