Since its inception by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009, Blockchain applications have evolved from the niche world of cryptography researchers and coders to the spotlights of skyrocketing cryptocurrencies valuations. The unforeseen rush on Initial Coin Offerings, as a new form of fundraising for startups, has completely reshuffled the traditional financing ecosystem to the point where venture capitalists’ model is being questioned.
