What is the “crowd” in Crowdfinance? What does the crowd thus buy and by what means and modes? And why should the crowd do this rather than put its money to work otherwise? What are the old (and continuing) modes for marketing and selling private securities? What is it like to purchase private securities from on-line portals? How are risks of fraud and mistake allocated there? Do on-line portals help get the rest of us in on unicorns in utero? How are equity securities purchased by the crowd turned into money? Is there a secondary market for private securities? Should ICOs be understood as crowdfinance by other means?
