Q: Would you pay $100,000 for an ICO/STO investor roadshow? How about $10K for an ICO advisor to pitch you to investors?
There are 2 types of proposals that Token offering advisors are floating:
1) They’ll organize an Asian roadshow for you. The premise is that you fly down and go to a bunch of conferences. They get you on stage and you talk about your product. The charge for this is around $100K.
2) The advisor will talk to investors on your behalf and you pay them $10K-$25K for their efforts, plus a success fee of 3% [...]
I with Silicon Valley entrepreneurs every day. Here’s what I’m finding:
Token Offerings are moving out of the U.S. Forward thinking countries like Malta, Switzerland, Germany, France, Australia, and Japan are creating laws enabling utility tokens to be floated in a legally compliant manner.
Here in the USA, there is no utility provision and all token offerings are considered securities. This is hurting our companies and innovation is leaving the US. While we have had successful Reg D 506c token offerings offerings, I am yet to see one successful Reg A+ offering for a blockchain based token sale (successful Reg A+ offerings have mostly been consumer products) [...]

BrightCOIN’s legal counsel wrote a really good article on the matter. The high-level takeaway is- DO NOT do Airdrops to American residents. Anil Advani from Inventus Law said “Founders, therefore, have to be careful in structuring their Airdrop or free stock giveaway offerings because those will very likely be: (a) treated as issuance of securities; and (b) subject to the Securities Act, and subject to registration or a specific exemption under the Act.” Full article here

What does BrightCOIN do?
BrightCOIN is a platform for launching token offering… in minutes and for Zero upfront fee!
BrightCOIN enables visionaries to create a coin, launch an ICO/STO and get crowdfunded in an easy and compliant manner. In doing so, BrightCOIN strives to set the gold standard of SEC compliance and the legitimization of ICOs/STOs.
Essentially, we’re a crowdfunding platform, a Kickstarter, for ICOs/STOs. We do this by:
- Enabling entrepreneurs to easily create a coin and launch their ICO/STO for ZERO upfront fees and without any coding, while being compliant with the security laws of multiple countries.
- We provide the comfort of raising money without having to worry about contributor compliance. We manage the KYC and AML processes and all other due intelligence including accredited investor verification.
- There is no upfront fee to launch a token offering on the BrightCOIN platform.
- There is no coding required to launch your token offering on BrightCOIN
In addition to the BrightCOIN product itself, we’ll make our compliance and investor verification services available on the blockchain. Digital identifications will be created for each investor, thus enabling anyone to whitelist investors. Hundreds of ICOs/STOs and new exchanges are launching every month. With this blockchain, investors won’t need to keep giving their information over and over again to different sites. Once we issue the investor an ID, we’ll provide the information to anyone who obtains that investor’s permission. [...]
In this article I’ll go over why we created BrightCOIN and our reasoning as to why we charge ZERO upfront fees.
An old friend of mine has a small startup that focuses on the world of fine art. He needed to raise a small amount of seed capital but didn’t have strong investor connections. He’d heard about Token Offerings and how it seemed that they were popping up everywhere and raising huge sums of money. So he figured that may be a solution to his money problem. He contacted a few of the many ICO consulting firms out there and learned that it isn’t that easy, and is very expensive. He discovered that these firms typically charge anywhere from $300,000 – $500,000 in upfront fees plus a sizable percentage of the number of funds raised. On top of that, there is a myriad of compliance issues that would cost even more to sort through. Obviously, this blew him away, because the costs would be more than what he needed to raise! [...]
