ICOs are disrupting the classic VC model, and have raised more than $350M in each of the last five months. Here are 3 things CRUXY learned from listening at WebSummit about ICO’s from the investor’s point of view.
Regulation will stagnate the benefits of ICOs
From an investor’s point of view, ICOs allow more fluidity, and for things to happen at a quicker pace. However, regulation will hinder this. If countries begin to regulate it, just as has been proposed in China and Korea, entrepreneurship will be hindered and open up another gateway for someone else to offer flexibility and pace in investment.
Think before you raise
Safety is not in the ICO vocabulary. Before you consider ICO’s. you must consider how you will use the token in the future. If you are not careful when raising, you will become unstuck when you fail to have a clear view of how to repurpose the coins later

Before you invest, you must really understand the token. But why do people see crypto as a negative?
People still think of the dark web, not angels in paradise.
