A growing number of entrepreneurs is trying to invest in new projects and profit from them. Since the great majority of new projects are in need of outside investment, the model of cooperation seems simple enough. The amount of minutiae that one is faced with together with the lack of appropriate regulations have forced both sides to remain cautious and look for alternatives.
The cryptocurrency projects based on the blockchain use three of the most popular models to fundraise: ICO, IEO and STO.
Cryptocurrency and blockchain projects
Any investor should first run a background check on any project they are considering investing in. Equally important is an investor’s assessment of a project’s profitability linked to the project’s potential for success. The most attractive aspect of an IEO is its low minimum investment amount that results in beginning investors, small businesses and holders of currency willing to profit off their assets. A project’s success depends on what kind of people are working for it.
The main difference between an ICO and IEO is the presence of a trusted third party in the latter. The exchange (or more precisely, sale) of tokens — developed by the cryptographic community — takes place on a dedicated digital platform where traders meet. The funds are not sent to a smart contract as is the case with ICO and everything takes place through the exchange.
To participate in an IEO, both sides need to have active accounts within a given exchange. Investors can purchase the tokens issued as part of an IEO using their cryptocurrency.
The main strength of an IEO is the fact that the exchange provides oversight guaranteeing transaction security. Before a project is cleared to commence IEO, it is thoroughly analyzed and assessed based on its potential for success.
Exchange experts regulate IEO guaranteeing reliable security to investors. The direct exchange of funds and tokens works to reduce risk to the minimum. When deciding to invest in a project, it is important, however, to remember that there is risk associated with any project of not receiving the projected returns.
In contrast to ICO and IEO, STO involves an investment contract backed by security tokens placed on blockchain. Investment using these tokens resembles investment using shares and bonds. The security tokens are KYC-AML-secured cryptocurrencies. KYC and AML stand for “Know Your Customer” and “Anti-money Laundering” respectively.
A few words on the processes
“Know Your Customer” — KYC is a collection of relevant information about a client allowing to verify the client in terms of their honesty and transaction profile as well as their identity.
One of the main requirements of the “Anti-money Laundering” component is to operate an internal environment which actively works against money laundering.
STO tokens are backed by assets that can be transformed into real securities. They carry a lawful authenticity certificate recorded on the blockchain. These tokens can be purchased only by accredited investors.
