|I have had an avid interest in crowdfunding for a long time. Severa1 years ago, I almost started a board on SI to discuss the subject, but decided that there would not be enough interest. I still have 60 articles from 2012 (all now stale) in four SI file folders. I thought that the passage and implementation of the JOBS Act might stimulate more offerings, but the SEC regulations make it a difficult and expensive process for sma1l businesses. |
The initial coin offerings are crowdfunding on steroids. If the SEC were to loosen their regulations, there would be a od of equity ICOs. The numerous crypto exchanges that have been popping up would undoubtedly make a secondary market in the tokens, just as they do now for the utility tokens. I changed the name and header of the Fintech board in the hopes of stimulating some discussion of the ICOs. So far, no luck.
If you start a board devoted to equity crowdfunding, I will contribute.
