Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE Initial Coin Offering Webinar. Initial coin offerings (ICOs) have gained popularity as a business tool to raise capital, particularly for start-ups. In addition, cryptocurrency exchanges have become an increasingly popular way to buy and sell cryptocurrency. Along with these opportunities, however, is an increasing risk of manipulation and fraud. Regulatory agencies are intensifying their focus on ICOs and the cryptocurrency exchange market, resulting in an uncertain regulatory landscape for issuers and secondary market players.

In this Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals, brought together by The Knowledge Group, will present an in-depth analysis of the recent enforcement issues in ICOs and cryptocurrency exchanges. The course will include the following major topics:

  • ICOs and Cryptocurrency Exchanges – Overview and Statistics 
  • ICO Regulation and Litigation
  • Economic Considerations: Benefits and Value Drivers of Crypto Tokens
  • Economic Considerations: Cryptocurrency Exchanges
  • What Lies Ahead
