ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) have been popular recently among venture capitalists, startups, and investors. In 2017, ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) outperformed Venture Capital in funding Blockchain startups. ICOs are an alternative way to raise capital from multiple sources for startups by allowing investors to buy tokens or coins. In 2018, we estimate the number of ICOs to be around 400.
Currently, approximately 10 new tokens are launched every day. However, whilst token buyers and venture founders may delve into the complex legal and technical functions of ICOs, they need a platform that automates the processes, from token issuance to marketing and ultimately exchange liquidity.
The BlockToken platform (BKT) offers a highly differentiated opportunity for early-stage startups, token designers and token buyers to undertake more efficient and less costly token offering projects. With a panel of services that redefine token purchasing and smooth trading, BlockToken is the “go to” platform for savvy early-stage blockchain projects.
