Blockchain Fundraising & ICOs
Crowdfunding is now easier than ever due to new blockchain fundraising mechanisms – token issuances on blockchains. ICOs, IEOs, STO, and sophisticated forms of initial coin offerings, for example through bonding curve contracts, have evolved and offer completely innovative funding possibilities for people, blockchain projects, and normal businesses. While the ICO hype from 2017 has temporarily lost interest, different forms of fundraising continued throughout 2018 and 2019. Crypto VCs mostly funded projects in exchange for tokens and equity – depending on the project. Various (decentralized) platforms are emerging that enable compliant token sales.
