ICO – Curse or Blessing?

June 8 @ 16:00 - 20:00

Don’t miss the opportunity: Discuss with us the most important challenges and trends around initial coin offerings (ICOs) from the perspective of start-ups, traditional and corporate venture capital, private and crowd investors and regulators.

The number of ICOs and funds raised through ICOs reached record levels in 2017 and continue to grow. Traditional venture capitalists, companies and investment banks are increasingly considering and deciding to invest in ICOs. However, the regulatory authorities are concentrating on implementing new rules and regulations – because blockchain technology, crypto currencies and ICOs have become indispensable.

Media coverage of crypto currencies remains critical due to volatility, hacking and money laundering. And organizations like Bitkom and BaFin are slowly recognizing the revolution that is starting now.

  • Do ICOs threaten traditional VC financing? Will ICOs replace investment banks in the placement of capital increases
  • What are the main types of tokens and what are their legal implications?
  • What is the best legal form for an ICO?
  • What is the current status of ICO regulation in the USA, Europe and Asia?
  • What are the leading ICO hubs?
  • What are the effects of inadequate cybersecurity?
  • What must be done to avoid the loss of the investor’s capital and personal data?
  • What is the experience of founders who have carried out an ICO?
  • As an issuer of an ICO: What can I expect in dealing with the regulator and supervision?

These and other questions will be discussed by our guests and speakers. Practical experience is crucial in the ICO world: We are delighted that Melanie Mohr, CEO of YEAY, and Oliver Nägele, CEO of Helix Orange and Blockchain Helix, as well as other top-class speakers and panelists will be present with their expertise.

Please register here by June 4.

We are looking forward to you!
