As seen in:
The market is learning that many ICOs are the modern-day equivalent of a failing company adding a dot com to their name. JCO represents something real in the blockchain/crypto space that will be a big contributor to broadening the blockchain economy by making it accessible and inclusive.
Jeremy Gardner, Co-Founder and Managing Partner Ausum Ventures
My passion has long been focused on "financial services for the rest of us,” so being on the front lines with the IBI and supporting the development of financial innovation like the JCO is incredibly exciting. With the blockchain, we can truly reach billions of people who have been abandoned by the traditional financial and investment systems.
Sheel Mohnot, Partner, 500 Startups
Crypto currencies will clearly become an increasingly important avenue for capital formation over the next couple years. It’s great to see initiatives like the JCO accelerating the move of crypto to more stable, compliant and transparent model.
Mike Sigal, Partner, 500 Fintech & Cofounder, Upside Partners
As innovators in investment crowdfunding we think the JCO can fill a unique role globally in blending the blockchain with traditional capital raising and provide liquidity to the investment crowdfunding model. We are looking to bring the JCO shortly to Canada.
Peter-Paul Van Hoeken, Co-Founder & CEO, FrontFundr, The New Capital Market
The JOBS Crypto Offering (JCO) aims to be the model framework that will bring blockchain based token sales and digital currencies to people in a transparent, legal and credible way. Its remarkable that the blockchain community is coming together through the IBI to openly help others navigate through the ever evolving crypto landscape.
