The ICO (Initial Coin Offering) boom in 2017 enabled anybody who created a digital currency to raise capital without the administrative burden of an IPO. This resulted in the release of many alternatives to bitcoin, named altcoins.

The regulatory actions of countries such as China are also discussed.

Key learning objectives:
