It wasn’t until 2017 that the boom of consumer-focused blockchain projects, funded by easily facilitated ICOs, began to hit Australia. Early last year the country’s “first” ICO was kicked off by Chronobank and since then the floodgates have opened for disruptive blockchain companies, with many of them raising multiple millions to help get their ambitious projects off the ground.
