Is there some type of alternative to ico financing? Initial coin offerings are banned; however, this does not mean tokens are banned (privately funded token projects will still exist).

Perhaps we will see flourishing incubator coins (such as blockchain cap, adel, etc).

Also are there possible loopholes to the ban? For example, a token airdrop where the dev team maintains a large premine in order to fund their project.

Thoughts?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

Premines, fastmines, instamines, dev taxes, masternodes, centralized control of coin issuance; any of these would violate FINCEN's definition of a decentralized cryptocurrency. Any project that has these features will be hit with enforcement action, and will cease to exist as a result. Invest accordingly.

Look at Bitcoin, Monero and Litecoin to see examples of legitimate ways of running a cryptocurrency project.

The press is having a field day with this...

The government move should “help cool down the market and sweep away bad actors,” said Jehan Chu, whose crytocurrency hedge fund Kenetic Capital has invested in Chinese ICOs. He said he hoped regulators would allow some forms of digital currency financing later. “I don’t think they’re trying to kill it.”

Just when I thought the worst to hit the crypto scene was over with the whole forking and segwit thing. This happens. Going to be another one of those months
