The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved Blockstack's offering of $28 million worth of "Stacktokens" (STX) to the public in conformance with the SEC's Regulation A+ which provides an alternative approach to traditional initial public offering]s (IPO). Unlike most IPOs, Stacktokens do not provide an equity stake in the issuer, Blockstack.[1] At the time of the SEC's Stacktoken approval, more than 165 applications had already been built on Blockstack.[2]

Stacktokens, offered through their own website, are utility tokens, to be used by developers and their customers.[3] According to Blockstack, Stacktokens provide the "fuel" for registering transactions on the Blockstack blockchain. Blockstack says that its blockchain will contain very little developer logic, avoids smart-contract design and encourages decentralization of data storage.[4]
