We analyze market dynamics in terms of volatility, global presence, the impact of news events, and types of industries that are issuing or considering to issue ICOs. We discuss some specific ICOs to focus on key lessons learned. We discuss the regulatory landscape and challenges for this market. We conclude that ICOs along with the underlying technology hold great promise to disrupt various types of intermediaries while acknowledging that the financial and regulatory infrastructure needs to be further developed.
