WHAT IS A CRYPTOCURRENCY?
From Wikipedia: A cryptocurrency (or crypto currency) is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange that uses cryptography to secure its transactions, to control the creation of additional units, and to verify the transfer of assets.[1][2][3] Cryptocurrencies are classified as a subset of digital currencies and are also classified as a subset of alternative currencies and virtual currencies.
TVM/TPB Note: This definition / description does not make reference to it being a store of value, rather it is merely a description of an asset that cannot be changed without the authority of the owner / owners (i.e. key holders)
Most ICOs are not 'investments' but something more like 'crowdfunding' or worse ... simply gambling.

SCALE AND GROWTH OF THE CRYTOCURRENCY SECTOR
THE RELATIVE SIZE OF CRYPTOCURRENCIES -V- OTHER ECONOMIC COMPONENTS


Growing number and value of the crytocurrency economy

The scale of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) in the second quarter of 2017 has been at a record level
In the second quarter of 2017 the amount of ICO related financing has boomed (ICI = Initial Coin Offering). These were negligable in 2015 and 2016 and started to grow very rapidly in the early part of 2017. This reflects the growing understanding of what blockchain technology can be used for, and an increasing acceptance of its use. It also reflects the willingness of a certain class of investor to embrace the idea that 'if BitCoin can be a vehicle for wealth creation, then maybe another blockchain based coin or token might do the same ... and make me rich!'
Trend: VC -v- ICO fund raising during 2017

The explosive growth in the use of ICOs for fund raising in June and July of 2017 has shocked the world of traditional establishment finance and given rise to a massive amount of thought about what this is going to mean for the future of finance.
Many jurisdictions are concerned by the complete lack of regulation related to cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings (ICOs). In late August 2017, the Chinese government banned the use of ICOs and called for the giveback of the funds raised through recent ICOs.
It is thought that this ban will be removed as soon as a regulatory framwork in China has been established.
