    Thanks, Brian! Yes, very helpful, and thanks for directing me towards the blog post as well. It seems that many of the historical advantages of accredited venture funding are shrinking, and that the trend suggests crowdfunding will be increasingly beneficial for both investors and startups alike.

    With that in mind, what are the benefits do platforms have in requiring accreditation? It would seem beneficial for AngelList, for example, to open to Reg CF investors. As with SeedInvest, investment types that require acceditation can be separated on the platform, and as with Wefunder, investors could still back a syndicate. So why wouldn’t all platforms offer that variety and variability in investment options? Does this have something to do with deal flow?
