When it comes to Initial Coin Offerings or ICOs, peoples main concerns by far are how the field will be regulated and scams within the field, according to a survey among the 400 attendees to the ICO Event Amsterdam on Wednesday.

According to Lars van de Ven of the Dutch authority on financial markets AFM's FinTech department, the most logical thing to do at this time, is to let the ICO field self regulate. In this way, the industry can guarantee that ICOs will continue into the future in a more sustainable way, he said to NL Times.

The Netherlands seems to be an interesting option for companies arranging for a crypto currency token sale and initial coin offering, or ICO. Speaking to NL Times at the ICO Event Amsterdam on Wednesday, a number of ICO founders said they are interested in setting up shop in the country, and in bringing more jobs to the Netherlands. The event was attended by 400 people from a variety of industries, all interested in a burgeoning field that allowed organizations to raise over $3.6 billion in 2017 alone.

The Netherlands has an established tradition of being at the forefront of innovation, and it is following this same path when it comes to blockchain and ICO development, according to Emanuele Francioni, founder of Web 3 Ventures - a Netherlands' based incubator for new businesses developing services with blockchain.

Initial Coin Offerings are a very risky, but potentially very rewarding form of capital raising provided that it is allowed to develop properly, according to Edan Yago, CEO and founder of Epiphyte. And for this to happen, the Dutch government and authorities should let ICOs develop unhindered, without stymieing innovation by applying new regulations onto this young field. "They should stand to the side and allow ICOs to develop", Yago said to NL Times.
