I read that Jibrel.com is opening up an equity finance platform that allows individuals to invest in startups.
What is the difference between something like this vs an ICO? Is it safer since there is more regulation?
If this is private startup investing without the same level of disclosure as an IPO who cares if they give you equity?
If a startup fails your equity is worth nothing just like many companies behind ICOs failed and took the token price with them to the grave.
