We are happy to invite you to this awesome blockchain event around ICO as a new way of corporate financing with ASTRATUM, Bundesverband Blockchain, DWF, Earlybird, Ethfinex, Innovationsforum and Windingtree.


A trend known as “Initial Coin Offering” (ICO) or "tokensale" has become very popular amongst blockchain start-ups, who are raising millions of dollars in a matter of seconds. The money is raised from the public through web platforms, by issuing tokens which might be cryptocurrencies or other digital assets.


Some argue that this novel type of financing, endorsed and spawned by the blockchain revolution, is contrary to investor interests. Start-ups, they say, are not accountable towards investor’s money and there is a wide information asymmetry in the market. Others contend that ICO advances the interest of investor’s, and of retail investor’s especially, by increasing the number of investment opportunities available to them in addition to providing higher liquidity of capital to start-ups. Small investors embraces ICO's as a new opportunity to benefit from the value creation of tech start-ups, formerly limited to Silicon Valley and other big VC's.


What we often miss to discuss is what the ICO is contributing is way beyond and above financing start-ups. ICOs have opened a new way of corporate financing. Though we may see some major structural change in the ICO model in future, the underlying concept of using blockchain to raise funds for the corporate entity is here to stay.


Join our event to learn more about this new phenomenon and how you may benefit from it.
