    Event Synopsis:
    Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) continue to attract attention from start-ups as a capital raising strategy. Despite the recent popularity of this funding method, developments over the last few months highlight the risk of fraud and manipulation in this market. These risks have attracted the attention of US regulators and led to significant regulatory and enforcement activity. Moreover, the rapid development of the ICO market and token issuances left regulators and legislators with little time to react. These and other factors have resulted in an unclear federal and state regulatory landscape for ICOs and digital assets that present significant legal and regulatory concerns for both ICO issuers and secondary market actors (e.g., token exchanges).

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will discuss recent US regulatory and enforcement developments in the ICO space. The discussion will include a brief history of ICOs and related regulatory developments, best practices and practical tips for avoiding regulatory pitfalls and enforcement actions, and thoughts on the outlook for ICOs as a funding method moving forward.

    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
