While ICOs stress the importance that the tokens that they sell are not equity shares, the SEC (Security and Enterprise Commission) is not entirely convinced that they shouldn’t be treated as such. Regulations and rules regarding ICOs look set to be ironed out over the next year (and perhaps beyond), but for now, ICOs in most countries are not seen as securities.

Why do ICOs use Ethereum ?

Jan 5, 2018 1:11:08 PM / by HiP

While bitcoin has its advantages, Ethereum is a currency that has the flexibility and capability needed for ICOs.

First and foremost, Ethereum allows the creation of new coins, necessary for token sales.

Ethereum also allows the generation of smart contract which calculate the amount of funds as well as verify and confirm transactions. They can also distribute the new tokens after the crowd sale.

They also give more security as Ethereum uses something called “gas payment” to process instructions. If the programme runs out of gas, it will stop – which means hackers cannot use infinite loops and DOS attacks.

Are ICOs a bubble ?

Jan 5, 2018 12:14:37 PM / by HiP

There has been a lot of speculation about ICOs and what they stand for. While small modifications are expected, ICOs will more than likely be soon regarded as a credible option for entrepreneurs and start-ups.


Some business analysts conclude that ICOs are a bubble for a number of reasons – they are a relatively new concept, they are using cryptocurrency which is also a relatively new monetary form.

So, really, it’s the “newness” of an ICO – as well as the sheer sums of money being invested in them, that is leading people to believe that they are a flash in the pan. There is nothing to stop ICOs from continuing with great success, and as an alternative to traditional fund and capital raising.
