ICO Basics: Hard Caps, Soft Caps, and Hidden Caps, Oh My!
June 06, 2018 7:00 AM Discuss The recent abandonment of the Telegram public ICO made many investors question why. After raising $1.7 billion from accredited investors, it was leaked that Telegram has reached its hard cap for its highly-anticipated crowdsale. This followed an increase of the cap from $1.2 billion to $1.7 billion. With many now forced to get their Grams on the secondary market, some are left confused by why Telegram just did not open up the sale to the public as planned and raise whatever they could get. The answer to this goes into fundraising philosophies among ICOs. New ICOs can opt to have a hard or a soft cap, with some choosing to have hidden caps. Understanding what these caps are and what the implications are for them can help in making informed decisions while vetting ICOs.
