Thinking aloud.

1. There is no "ban on ICO". There is a ban on non-compliant offering of de facto securities without registration and/or following other rules.

2. Every country has its own rules and exemptions - mostly modeled after US Reg D. The rules usually state that a public offering can only be made to professional and/or very rich investors (physical and legal persons alike).

3. Therefore public marketing (social networks, forum posts, advertising) to everyone is illegal. However marketing to brokers that represent investors is not illegal.

Corollary: very soon in China and other jurisdictions, brokers that sell access to ICOs may emerge. Their purpose will be to take all liability off ICO organizers in case of crackdown. Of course, the service will cost Chinese investors quite a bit.

While these brokers do not yet exist in the official sense, there is already such a service on offer.
We allow investors to participate in any ICO, regardless of location.
For more information, visit or DM.
