I have written extensively about blockchain, initial coin offerings and identity in the last year. Sadly blockchain is still and confusing and scary topic for most people. So when Alex Marsh from Invest In Blockchain reached out to me recently -I was both relieved and delighted to learn that someone has taken another swing at making this vital new trend, understandable to the masses in this article by Chantelle LaFaille (here).
The ICO swirl has been a series of insane ups and downs and now with the SEC coming down hard on how ICOs need to behave, it’s not surprising people are getting a little sheepish about ICOs, and thus blockchain. One of the bright spots in this whole landscape – that compliments the Invest In Blockchain message is the new company that serial entrepreneur Andy Singleton has just launched – AboveBoard, it’s offering a rigorous, disciplined way for white label investors to get into the blockchain companies that interest them most, and the way he has done it is brilliant – because it’s so hard to track all of the global securities laws in every country – the premise is that AboveBoard pays people tokens to keep up on all of those rules – so when an investor from Spain wants to buy a security in the US, whether or not it has anything to do with blockchain, AboveBoard can inform the investor whether or not they can do this. Seems pretty basic, but until now, cross border securities investments have been cartoonishly complex.
So thank you Invest In Blockchain for this new piece – it is a true Must Read.
