Journal of Economics and Business, 2020, vol. 112, issue C

Abstract: Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) are unregulated offerings of digital tokens on the Internet, built on the blockchain technology, as to provide a means to collect finance for a project, disintermediating any external platform, payment agent or professional investor. ICO proponents are usually teams made up by entrepreneurs, professionals, technicians and managers, eventually assisted by an advisory committee.
