"Blockchain technology has ushered in a new world of digital finance, offering innovative businesses an entirely new financing mechanism and a new asset class for innovative investors. Through a powerful new combination of cryptography, game theory, and economic incentives, businesses can now offer their investors digital tokens that live on a global public blockchain, posing a threat to traditional venture capital. These tokens can be programmed to represent equity, debt, royalty streams, or a variety of derivatives. Launched as initial coin offerings or initial token offerings, these tokens now represent cryptoassets that token holders can securely own or will transfer amongst themselves without traditional securities exchanges. As adoption of this financial innovation accelerates, regulators seek to promote the innovation and balance with investor protections. Associations such as NCFA and Blockchain Canada are at the forefront of this regulatory dialogue." -- Alan Wunsche, Founder and CEO, TokenFunder
