CVM Resolution 88: what does it address and what are its impacts?

In times of asset tokenization, the Brazilian financial investment market is renewed based on good news emerging from the various actors in this ecosystem. One of them is CVM resolution 88 with a series of changes to the corporate crowdfunding environment.

This new regulatory instrument from the Securities and Exchange Commission represents a turning point for equity crowdfunding in Brazil, with changes that allow for the healthy expansion of the market with important flexibility, without giving up investor protection.

The set of changes will gradually impact the market and favor the tokenization of business projects, due to their profile similarities.

But in what aspects does this normative instruction impact the world of crowdfunding?

How can the token market benefit from these changes?

BLOCKBR, a company that develops tokenization infrastructure, will talk about CVM resolution 88 and its implications for investors.


CVM Resolution 88 is the normative instruction of the body responsible for the administration of securities in the country that regulates investment crowdfunding operations, replacing Resolution 588 of 2017.

The current regulations bring a series of significant changes for companies interested in opening growth and development projects through participatory investment.


Equity crowdfunding is a form of collective financing in which investors buy shares or stakes in a company, which capitalizes its activities and projects in a way that is not the banking system with high interest rates and collateral requirements.

As we can see, investment crowdfunding differs completely from the rewards model, as the gain is related to the person’s participation percentage in the project in question.

Equity crowdfunding has become a financing alternative for startups and small businesses to raise capital and democratize access to investment.

It is an investment modality that has many similarities with tokenization.



The limits for raising funds through crowdfunding have been substantially increased.

  • Funding limit from R$5 million to R$15 million;
  • Individual annual gross revenue limit from R$10 million to R$40 million;
  • Consolidated annual gross revenue limit from R$10 million to R$80 million.

What is the impact on the investment market?

One of the main aspects of the CVM 58 definitions is the substantial increase in the potential for the equity crowdfunding market, expanding the universe of projects and also the volumes for fundraising.

Opportunities to invest in the most diverse market segments and company sizes increase. This helps to increase the flow of investors, as they will have more options for products and services, choosing based on preference and also based on the relationship between risk and return.


Apart from qualified investors – with investments or annual gross income above R$1 million – CVM resolution 588 increased investment limits to lower levels.

  • Investors with up to R$200,000 in investments or income can invest up to R$20,000 per year in startups;
  • Investors with investments and income between R$200,000 and R$1 million can apply 10% per year on the larger amount.

What is the impact on the investment market?

Increases in investment limits allow people to invest in startups and diversify their portfolio of financial products.


The CVM resolution allows the company to raise 25% more in each round of investment when there is excessive demand, at its option, which favors strategic decisions between immediately expanding funding or letting the demand continue to a next round.

What is the impact on the investment market?

This mechanism did not exist in the Brazilian market. With his entry, companies can raise more resources at times of opportunity instead of waiting for a possible good round. This gives them another strategic resource.


Startups can use part of the capital raised through crowdfunding to acquire control of another company (or companies), which was not allowed until then.
