In 2017, initial coin offerings (ICOs) were in their heyday. In fact, between July and November that year, they managed to raise a total of $3 billion amongst over 430 companies. ICOs were influenced by IPOs, which are initial public offerings, because of their success in traditional finance.

As the ICO industry boomed, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) decided to crack down on the efforts in 2018, saying that there were companies that were in violation of two laws – Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The aforementioned laws said that certain actions cannot be taken with a security that hasn’t been registered with the SEC.

STOs, or Security Token Offerings, are frequently discussed as a mechanism that could help propel blockchain adoption. Such securities are developed on the blockchain and their ownership is governed by smart contracts for real estate, debt, private equities, and fractional ownership.

Goldfelder added, “In 2018 the technologists and players involved in the crypto space started coming to the realization that to fully realize the potential for this industry they must work within the confines of the regulatory

In fact, there are 50 different stablecoin projects right now. The increase in the popularity of stablecoins’ popularity could indicate a change that is coming in the crypto market, but without the volatility that cryptocurrency typically comes with. For this reason, a recent Forbes article suggests that stablecoins will ultimately lead to mainstream adoption in traditional finance. As a result of this confidence, the blockchain industry is slowly linking the financial industry with blockchain technology. Between stablecoins and blockchain technology, Forbes says that much of the application could be in real estate finance, which is predominantly for the many intermediaries at interact
