Right now, cryptographic token sales (“ICOs”) are revolutionizing the way companies in the tech sector are funded. Token sales democratize funding by decentralizing funders both geographically and economically.
Roughly 25% of all venture capital investment is based in the Bay Area. Until recently, that Bay Area focus meant that getting a startup funded usually required a lot of traveling to Silicon Valley, or even relocating the entire team. It also meant that the best investment opportunities in tech were reserved for the small network of investors who lived there. There are only 898 VC firms in the US. Half of them are based in California; this is the definition of centralization. It's no wonder that startup financing has experienced such disruption by the move toward decentralization.
In June of 2017, investments via token sales totaled $550 million, for the first time exceeding traditional angel, seed, and VC funding. As of October 16, ICOs had raised a total of over $3.2 billion during 2017.
