Legal Issues of Bitcoin, Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) and Other "Cryptocurrencies"

概要

The popularity of Bitcoin has inspired the introduction of other cryptocurrencies and given rise to initial coin (or token) offerings (ICO), which are typically online fundraising activities for blockchain technology-related projects.
