What is an ICO?
An Initial Coin Offering (ICO) is a fundraising mechanism in which new projects sell their underlying crypto tokens in exchange for bitcoin or ether. It's similar to an Initial Public Offering (IPO) in which investors purchase shares of a company. But an ICO is much, much easier to create and basically everyone is able to start an ICO.
In 2018 ICOs earned in total over 20.000.000.000$. Therefore an ICO is at that moment the most powerful kickstart for your business or App-idea in order to raise money from investors!
