ICO stands for Initial Coin Offer and it's typically used when a new Cryptocurrency is launching. You can think of it as something equivalent to an IPO but unlike an initial public offering, acquisition of the tokens does not grant ownership in the company developing the new cryptocurrency. And unlike an IPO, there is little or no government regulation of an ICO

What is an ICO?

An initial coin offering (ICO) is a means of crowdfunding the release of a new Cryptocurrency token, similar to how Companies raise money from an IPO by issuing out shares. Generally, tokens for a new Cryptocurrency are sold during the ICO to raise money for technical development & funding of the project or to kickstart a digital economy through a fair distribution

The first ever recorded ICO was for Mastercoin in 2013, however many Projects like Bitcoin did not have ICO since it's an option for Developers to consider. This means that initial coin offerings is not required and is a relatively new alternative method of a speculative investment that utilizes Blockchain Technology. Notable projects like Ethereum used an ICO to raise money back in 2014, in order to distribute and kickstart it's Digital Economy. A known new web browser Brave, raised an ICO for it's BAT token and was able to generate about $35 million in under 30 seconds, a record set for raising funds in a short time period

Thank you for some very interesting sites on ICOs, will keep me occupied for a while :)


Great post. I've used but now there are so many ICOs ...

I've participated in 3 ICOs (BAT, BNT, MGO .. ok, maybe a little bit more) and told to myself to stop since searching through ICOs seems addictive to me.

You search through ICOs and every second is like "OMG I need this one! This will rock and there is so much potential ...".

Greed is evil and if there are speculators who think they are "investors" so are ICOs.

Great reference guide on key sites for ICO, definitely reSTEEMED!

Hi you should also take a look at CoinGecko's ICO list too -

Thank you very much for all of his tools. I have never participated in an ICO yet but I think I will do it soon. What do you advise me as a project?


Definitely investing in EOS's ICO, there is still plenty of time but i'll definitely be getting a couple of tokens over a period of time


I talked about this - initial hype aside its a good project and I think 100th day will be litmus test for it as by then some of their roadmap deadlines would have passed and hopefully we will be able to pick a chunk.
