Initial Coin or Token Offerings

Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) are a means of raising finance, especially by early-stage tech start-ups, typically for DLT related projects. Gibraltar is releasing a complementary regulatory framework covering the promotion and sale of tokens or coins, operating secondary market platforms trading in tokens, as well as providing investment and ancillary services relating to tokens.
