Since January 2017, organizations have raised over $1.8 billion through Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). As organizations continue to raise tens, sometimes hundreds, of millions of dollars in each token sale, it grows increasingly important for industry leaders and policymakers to understand the ICO economic and regulatory landscape and the technical lingo of the cryptocurrency and ICO space. Market players that are not directly involved in the blockchain space should be conscious of how ICOs and tokenization could be leveraged in multiple industries.
