I am trying to understand cryptocurrencies and ICOs in general. I can find a lot of examples of using the Parity client to participate in ICOs but not a lot of examples on how to launch/create an ICO using Parity.
From what I understand, once you have deployed and registered a token. You need an ICO smart contract (aka. a crowdsale smart contract? https://github.com/OpenZeppelin/zeppelin-solidity/tree/master/contracts/crowdsale) which are essentially the rules as to how an ICO is run.
So, if I register and deploy a token, do I then need to deploy a crowdsale smart contract using Parity. Am I understanding this correctly?
