Initial Coin Offerings

ICOs are a way for companies to raise capital. In an ICO, a company offers digital tokens to potential investors to fund a certain project or platform, and distributes the tokens via a blockchain network. Tokens purchased by an investor in an ICO typically do not provide “shares” in the company but might grant access to a service or a share in the project's earnings. The resources below provide detailed information about the ICO process and important regulatory guidance and warnings regarding these investments.
