The popularity of crowdfunding as an entirely new way of financing business has skyrocketed in recent years, as proven by many million-dollar projects that it had brought to life. Now, another emerging major investment theme is on its way forward: blockchain in crowdfunding. With the many opportunities this digital distributed ledger technology can offer, blockchain is expected to grow at a rapid phase in the coming years.
However, it does not come without its regulatory implications and risks. As this method of investing becomes widespread, businesses and their counsel should familiarize themselves with the recent crowdfunding and cryptocurrency trends and updates to keep themselves compliant with relevant laws and, therefore, minimize exposure to potential risks and pitfalls.
In this Live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will help businesses and their counsel understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the regulatory considerations of blockchain in crowdfunding as well as the recent key issues which will impact the compliance landscape in 2019.
Key topics include:
• Blockchain in Crowdfunding: An Overview
• 2018 Trends and Developments
• Legal and Cybersecurity Risks and Pitfalls
• Crowdfunding Litigation
• Best Compliance Practices and Considerations
• Outlook for 2019
