Mingo is the international messaging and cryptocurrency company headquartered in Ireland, with offices in the US. It was the first Pre Initial Coin Offering (ICO) to launch from Ireland. Mingo will launch its full ICO in 2018 allowing investors to participate in its global rollout through the acquisition of the Mingo cryptocurrency.

ICO start date: 2017-09-25



Mingo delivers a unique multichannel Messaging and eSports app with an integrated cryptocurrency Wallet based on its own cryptocurrency called MingoCoin. Mingocoin is developed on secure, trustworthy, and proven distributed public ledger technology.


MingoCoin is the base cryptocurrency in the Mingo app and is developed on secure, trustworthy, and proven distributed ledger technology. MingoCoin enables full crypto currency transactions: it is both a store of value (it can be used to send and receive money) and a token for use in eSports micro-tournaments.


MingoMessenger is the unique multi-channel messaging app supporting six channels (Facebook, Twitter, Steam, Discord, Slack, and IRC Cloud) and will deliver other channels in the near future. The approach of MingoMessenger is that all contacts, regardless of channel, show up in the same Mingo platform. In Mingo, the message trail between you and your contact can be viewed in one discussion under their name. This eliminates the need to jump between app channels and platforms searching for important communications from your contact – every channel is visible in a single view for each contact in the Mingo app. MingoMessenger 2.0 will be released for beta testing soon and we will send out the new download URLs soon.


MingoGame is an eSports gaming platform. Mingo users can challenge each other to games of skill, paying an entry fee to compete individually or in micro tournaments, using MingoCoin cryptocurrency. The details of this exciting new feature will be announced soon. 


MingoWallet is a multicurrency wallet that supports cryptocurrencies, including MingoCoin, Bitcoin and Ether. Mingo will derive revenue from commission fees from financial transactions over MingoMessenger and MingoGaming
