Fees during the initial placement of tokens has grown due to the ICO Telegram — in the two rounds of the project Pavel Durov has attracted $ 1.7 billion. The remaining 4.6 billion received from the owners of 200 companies from around the world.
As the newspaper notes, the fees grow, despite the increased attention to projects from regulators. In February, the head of the Commission on securities and exchange Commission (SEC) J. Clayton stated that “every ICO, which he knows is safe.”
The exception was the Centra Tech startup, which grossed $ 32 million. The SEC accused the owners of cheating the investors. According to the regulator, the company promised to use borrowed money for the ICO to develop joint products with Visa and Master Card. In fact, the company did not have any contact with payment systems.
The initial public token is still far from the charges, which demonstrate the traditional IPO. Last year the organizers of the IPO attracted more than 188 billion dollars.
