Thoughts on Tokens
Balaji S. Srinivasan

I think that for this to happen, there needs to be a way for investors to have a “say” in the companies that issue the tokens. We have to remember that VCs (especially the good ones) are more than “cash bags” — They can have crucial input for young entrepreneurs, an input that is counted because they have equity which gives them a “say”.

In this case, something else will be required.
