Blockchain technology solution providers typically focus on emerging financial technologies and cryptocurrencies. The blockchain solutions provider pursue opportunities to drive revenue and profit growth by offering custom product development for centralized or decentralized applications, training and development workshops, ICO end to end execution and management, and system integration services.
These companies can help your business define the problem and find the right financial technology solution. I wrote this post several years ago and now more than ever these services are in demand! Several of the ICO companies are now trying to rebrand themselves as professionals in ITO, STO, etc…alongside ICO, to make themselves more versatile.

Blockchain solutions provider- INITIAL COIN OFFERING (ICO)
In response to the huge demand, several companies are now exclusively focusing on Initial Coin Offerings (ICO). They have a comprehensive service that they offer organizations that are doing an Initial Coin Offering (ICO), the scope of service can range from pre-ICO, during-ICO, and all the way to post-ICO, and if requested, provide regular on-going support post token issuance/distribution. All of this is completed alongside working on the technology infrastructure (complimentary or as a managed service), if needed, to actually build the product for the clients. The solution will, of course, be customized to client needs, however, the ICO specific options that you will typically see on the market are:
- ICO website, white paper, academic literature and peer-reviewed research (preferable), sneak peeks and teaser releases
- ICO programming code, if the token will be Ethereum compatible (e.g. ERC-20 compatible) then it would be smart contract code
- ICO distribution strategy, token holder structure
- ICO terms and conditions, programming hold periods and/or covenants into the underlying token
- ICO brand and advertising solutions, marketing at grassroots levels to build support and excitement
- ICO code repository (e.g. Git Hub) design, creation, and implementation with key contributors and community involvement
