ICOs: The Next Generation

Token offerings are evolving beyond the Wild West environment. Regulators are engaging, institutional investors are getting involved, technology is advancing, and entrepreneurs are gaining experience with token-based business models. How are ICO models changing, in the US and around the world? Can concerns about fraud, legal compliance, and governance be addressed without stifling innovation? Will we look back on ICOs as a short-term bubble or the foundation of a durable new investment form? Is the real opportunity in creating decentralized businesses where users fund development, programmable “securities tokens” that transform Wall Street, or something else? This panel of leading legal and financial experts on token offerings will highlight the latest developments around the world.
