@joecavalry is right.
a big part of bitcoin's recent surge is the increase in demand for other digital currencies being sold in so-called "initial coin offerings," or ICOs. Under ICOs, blockchain start-ups sell their tokens directly to the public to raise capital without any regulatory oversight.
At least 40 start-ups have launched an ICO this year, according Smith + Crown data.
