Crypto assets were introduced less than a decade ago, first in the form of cryptocurrencies and then they rapidly expanded to other categories as new platforms emerged.

The recent wave of new crypto asset issuance has been sweeping the start-up fundraising world. There are several ways for an entity to participate in this new wave:

  • Raising funds through an ICO (initial coin offering)
  • Issuing crypto assets
  • Investing in crypto assets.

If you are considering one of these activities, you need to familiarise yourself with crypto assets, the ICO process and the regulatory environment.
