ICO stages ICOs usually have more than one stage. The first stage is mostly private and only available to the big investors and companies that are willing to support the project. They get special deals and bonuses depending on the support they are willing to provide, and the amount of money they are willing to invest. The second stage is generally the Pre-ICO.
