ICO campaigns are used by start-ups to raise funds for a cryptocurrency venture, bypassing the strictly regulated capital-raising process required by venture capitalists or banks. Initial Coin Offerings, although a relatively new phenomenon, have become a focal point of debate within the Blockchain community.
While the regulatory infrastructure surrounding ICO’s remains in its infancy, ICOs are still considered a highly-speculative investment, and contributors must be prepared to face volatility and potential loss. In 2017 alone, crypto start-ups raised almost 6 billion USD through ICOs, noting a staggering 40x growth from the previous year.
