“Flood Capital” – How ICOs raise as much as equity-funded startups in just 0.4% of the time. Can they handle it?

BLUF: Did a bit of research and found that the average ICO raise amount in 2017 is just under $16M while it takes the average equity funded startup 60 months over three stages of capital raises for the same amount, aka drip capital for what they NEED. In my mind, you wouldn’t flood a garden expecting it to grow just like you wouldn’t flood a business with capital expecting it to grow. If I’m investing, I need to know these ICO founders can handle it. Full thoughts listed here: https://ift.tt/2IsV3KF forward to some debate on this.
