Inicial Coin Oferings (ICOs) has been around for a few years now. Since 2,013 when Mastercoin launched the first tokenized sale, lots of newcomers has been populating startup ecosystems around the world. Spain is not different. Some companies have gone that way, either to finance their first steps or to raise some funds out of institutional capital.
Despite how brilliant those innovative companies are, there are few issues, when launching an ICO, they would like to have an extra hand to figure them out. From organizing the whole process, taking care of governance (to re-assure coin buyers the company will deliver as promised), all the way through liquidity.
Icofunding helps buyers and companies to close the gaps on those main areas while offering support during the whole process, relying on the power of the crowd. At CGS (Coin Governance System) - Icofunding spin-off - they will take extra care on protecting ICO investors against scams and bad practices.
We'll have the privilege to chat with Alejandro, one of the key stakeholders on the ICO landscape in Spain. Covering all from, policy making, market opportunities, biggest challenges to the future of ICOs and its implications for early stage companies.
