Registration a company for ICO
Being interested in ICO (Initial Coin Offering), many probably already know that this term was derived from the abbreviation IPO (Initial Public Offering). The only difference is that:
• IPO – initial public offering of shares on stock exchanges;
• ICO – instead of shares are crypto-currency tokens. Here you can also include crowdfunding.
In short, the ICO technology of the project involves the release of its own tokens and their sale to investors for crypto-currency or fiat money.
In addition to the idea of the startup itself and development team, it is very important to choose the right jurisdiction for the ICO.
It is necessary to understand what kind of “environment” and which country will suit your ICO project and the company as a whole.
For future investors who will pay attention to your ICO project, it will be important that the company conducts its ICO project officially, and also thought through all the legal issues of protecting its clients during the investment period.
To date, the most popular countries for the registration of a company under the ICO project are:
