If you've been paying attention in the crypto world, you will be aware of the new form of funding: ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) and they have been raising more money than VCs this year! Check out this piece on Forbes for more details AngelList and Protocol Labs have launched CoinList: a new platform for token-based networks to reach investors and raise money for the development of the project. The first ICO on the platform will be for Filecoin, sometime in the next few weeks. Quote from @naval on the Forbes article: “ICOs are obviously a new and interesting form of funding for blockchain-based protocols,” Naval Ravikant, the CEO and cofounder of AngelList, and an investor in Protocol Labs, wrote via email. “But it's not clear that all of them comply with U.S. securities laws or that all of them are companies that have good native use cases for new coins.” Then, referring to Filecoin, the inaugural ICO on CoinList, he wrote, “So, we wanted to use a high-quality coin and team to trailblaze a legal and compliant ICO.”

This is a fantastic plan for the future of investing in pre-launch coins. Given the fact that all these investments are decentralized currencies and you can currently invest on exchanges without being "@angellist accredited" - When will you be making this available to non-accredited investors?

CoinList lets you invest in pre-launch blockchain based projects at the Initial Coin Offering. If only we also had this for IPOs of popular startups. 🙇

ICO's have a huge potential - but it's really hard to understand so if the SAFT makes that easier then that's a huge leap forward. I think their wise to restrict to accredited as opening up to non-accredited draws the attention of this thing called the SEC. So better to avoid that conversation for now and move with what you know is safe or saft in their case ;)
