I would like to fund my social startup via blockchain. I realized that most of startups here are getting funded via ICOs, they create coins and they distribute coins to investors. My app is social one like Snapchat or Vine, it doesn't require coins. Can I look for investment via blockchain without ICO and coins?

I would like to fund my social startup via blockchain. I realized that most of startups here are getting funded via ICOs, they create coins and they distribute coins to investors. My app is social one like Snapchat or Vine, it doesn't require coins. Can I look for investment via blockchain without ICO and coins?

In a case as you describe (albeit not so many details), would "traditional" crowdfunding be a more practical option?

Conceptually, I think you can still have an ICO for your product by raising other tokens (BTC, ETH, etc.) for you/your venture to directly use; but investors would expect something in return (whether security or utility), which a project's tokens would normally provide.

What can you offer?

Blockchain based ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) can serve as an important way to securely raise money for funding a Start-Up. With the sake of tokens, a good amount of money can be raised to fund any kind of project, social media or ecommerce business. People would be able to earn back returns as well once the project successfully completes and start reaping the profits.

Coinnup (https://ico.coinnup.com) has come up with an advanced ICO that can serve as a very good option for funding your project as well.

Your request has a fundamental contradiction that makes it unlikely to work. If your product doesn't require any coin/token, then it's not on the blockchain. The coin /token is necessary to keep on mining, and thereby keep that blockchain alive.

You can look for investments without ICO and coins, but that's traditional investing. Given these constraints, you may seek out the Angels and VCs, or try your luck at some of the crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter.

why don't use an ICO, it's useful right now.
"There's been a significant amount of media coverage in relation to ICOs, especially as the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry evolves. However, taking a closer look, it appears that there are some critical gaps in the available information, which for many is misleading.

Of course, there are advantages to this model, including more rapid funding and fewer regulations -- which may actually be a double-edged sword. Unlike the traditional model, which requires startups to first build a company, generate revenue, and then get funding from angel investors (before landing a venture capitalist), ICOs provide somewhat of a shortcut." the entreprenuer.com
