ICO's also create a conflict of interest with equity holders which is a cause of concern with regulators and investors.

An investor invests $10 million to build a dApp, the team builds it and runs an ICO raising $50 million. The tokens end up more valuable than the company shares and the investors often end up with no tokens and little benefit from the ICO. Maybe the company itself folds and the token holders walk away whistling. So investors increasingly like to see tokens linked to equity in some way unless it's a DAO and the tokens are the equity. ICO's don't have to be a bad thing but the ICO industry needs to get some code of ethics because there's just too many scams out there. The company I work at is pushing for just such a thing, a code of ethics to encourage good ICO's that reward all participants fairly which in turn should lead to a stronger ICO market.

thats true equity and icos, or cryptos are in a zero sum conflict, to a cosiderable extent,

however its doubtful that a private equity holders can gain property over a token, the token might get a huge image damage through it.

It might be very difficult if you don't have any contacts from the fiat. The regulations processes will take a long period of time
