What is ICO?
An initial coin offering (ICO) is a means of raising capital by creating and selling crypto assets, such as bitcoins or ether, that serve as investment vehicles. An ICO operates similarly to an initial public offering (IPO) in that startups sell their own stocks or bonds. However, rather than being listed on a stock exchange, an ICO creates and sells its own digital currency.
Abbreviation of ICO – An Initial Coin Offering (ICO) is similar to an IPO (Initial Public Offering), where entrepreneurs raise funds by issuing securities directly to investors. In return for providing funding, investors receive coins or tokens at a discount, equal to the amount contributed.
Security for Investors – This offering is often structured as a crowdfunding campaign, via websites such as Kickstarter or Indiegogo, in order to provide early adopters with access to the project. Unlike IPOs, however, these offerings offer complete security for investors, who purchase the offered securities directly from the entrepreneur ITIANS.
