Credit Token License for ICO Business

With Blockchain technology rapidly being adopted, many existing companies need to be innovative and progressive in order to stay competitive. By adopting Blockchain technology, companies transit themselves from a centralized paradigm to a decentralized paradigm.

Businesses with huge client databases such as airlines, banks, finance-related entities, e-commerce, and telecommunication are thinking of creative ways to tokenize their businesses. They do that through the issuance of their own coin via an Initial Coin Offering (ICO). These coins create a platform to enhance their relationships with their customers. The coins can be distributed as incentives following purchases or as a stored value for future products or services.

For new start-ups with innovative and sound business models, that are related to or within the Blockchain and FinTech spaces, ICO is an increasingly popular method for them to raise funds. Business models such as token payment systems, mobile application credits, building a blockchain-based smartphone apps, smart contracts on real estate deals and blockchain-based data storages are some of the new breed business models in the Blockchain sphere. These models are ideally suited to use ICO to raise funds.
