Quick summary:

What’s this booklet about?

In the last five years, there has been a steady increase in the number of successfully launched initial coin offerings (ICOs). The term “initial coin offering” refers a process of distributing future functional units of cryptocurrency in exchange for fiat money or other cryptocurrencies. ICOs allow startups to easily raise capital.

An important advantage of ICOs is that they are unregulated in many countries. Hence, companies launching ICOs may not need to incur compliance costs associated with regulated ways of raising capital (e.g., initial public offerings).

The choice of a proper jurisdiction is of utmost importance for the success of an ICO. While some jurisdictions (e.g., South Korea and China) prohibit all ICOs, others (e.g., Gibraltar) issued detailed legal frameworks regulating ICOs. A third group of jurisdictions have not regulated ICOs (Costa Rica, Cyprus, Georgia, the Cayman Islands, and Chile). Although such jurisdictions may not have rules regarding ICOs, many of them issued clarificatory notes and warnings with regard to ICOs.

The purpose of this booklet is to (i) list five countries which, in our opinion, are particularly attractive for the launch of ICOs and (ii) explain the reason for their attractiveness. Those countries are: Switzerland (Section 2), Gibraltar (Section 3), Singapore (Section 4), Hong Kong (Section 5), and Germany (Section 6). At the end of this article, we provide concluding remarks (Section 7).

Kind regards,
Iven De Hoon

Do I get an invoice?2020-05-18T11:43:33+03:00

Customers who require an invoice are able to generate an invoice automatically from a link on their email receipt.
When customers click on the “Need an invoice –>Generate” link, they are then able to enter their details including a VAT number to generate a PDF invoice.

What about EU VAT? Do I need to give my full address?2020-05-18T11:50:11+03:00

From 1 January 2015, the rules around the European Union VAT place of supply of services will change. The 2015 European Union VAT law requires all sales of digital items (such as our ebooks) in the EU to pay VAT based on the location of the customer.
Although it might seem unnecessary to ask for an address to receive a digital item, unfortunately, a billing address is one of the customer details we are required by the 2015 EU VAT law to obtain.

Is there a money-back guarantee?2020-05-18T11:44:45+03:00
