Event Synopsis:
Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) continue to gain popularity among start-ups and companies as a method of raising capital these days. However, despite its new and efficient means, this type of funding is highly exposed to risks of fraud and manipulation. Despite it being covered by some laws and regulations in relation to cryptocurrencies, some of these specific crowd-lending regulations could not be applied to ICOs, thus, leaving ICOs as an unregulated crypto fundraising mechanism.

In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of ICO financial regulation landscape. Speakers will address recent trends and developments involving this significant topic. They will also present best practices and practical tips to avoid potential risks and legal pitfalls.

Key topics include:
• Initial Coin Offerings: Framework
• Scope and Considerations
• Identifying and Addressing Common Risks and Legal Issues
• Legal and Regulatory Trends and Updates
• Outlook
