An ICO is nothing new, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention lately.
The first ICO was launched in 2015 with the goal of launching a new type of crowdfunding called blockchain-based tokens.
Since then, dozens of other ICOs have been launched, and many more are in the works.
So far, more than 2,000 ICOs are on track to hit the market, according to data from the Interactive Brokers.
But while many ICOs aim to raise money for startups or products, others aim to bring the tech to the masses and create a way for people to share their wealth.
Many ICOs use crowdsale-style crowdfunding platforms to raise funds from people who want to buy a certain number of tokens.
Those tokens are then traded for cash or other assets.
When someone buys a token, the company that created the token (called the company) will then give it to someone else for the token price to be paid back.
For the purposes of this article, we’ll use the term ICOs to refer to the crowdfunding platforms that have raised money for companies.
Some of the most popular ICOs, such as Ethereum, Bitcoin, and Litecoin, are currently in the process of raising money for their projects.
Others, such like Stellar, Ethereum Classic, and Ripple, are focused on disrupting traditional financial markets and providing a new platform for cross-border payments and payments that are not tied to a particular country or financial sector.
Some of these companies have taken the idea of a decentralized network and applied it to the ICO space.
For instance, Ripple has announced that it will launch its own blockchain, called RippleNet, that will allow for cross borders and cross-currency payments, including those that use cryptocurrency.
This is part of an effort to create a platform for people who are unfamiliar with cryptocurrencies to start learning more about them.
Others, like Tokenbase, have raised over $6.4 million to create an ICO called TokenShare, which aims to make it easier for developers to create and sell tokens that are created by others.
While these companies all aim to disrupt the financial system, there are some who see a broader impact on society.
“We are seeing more and more ICOs where people can build and sell products on a blockchain, where they can create wealth on a platform that can be used by others, and the same can be said for ICOs,” said Brian Johnson, co-founder of blockchain startup MetaMask, in an interview with CoinDesk.
“There are a lot more opportunities for this than just money.”
Johnson said that it is difficult to make money from an ICO if you have to sell tokens or make other commitments.
But because these companies are built with the aim of building something that can work as a currency and for other purposes, they have the potential to be disruptive.
