Initial coin offerings have raised more funds than venture capital sofar and now have surpassed early stage VC funding. The amount of money raised by start-ups via so-called initial coin offerings (ICOs) has surpassed early stage venture capital (VC) funding for internet companies.

But not only start-ups get their financing this way - a number of companies have raised a large amount of money via ICOs. ICOs are a way for high-tech companies to raise money by selling investors tokens in exchange for equity, similar to an initial public offering (IPO).
