QuickLaunch University Webinar—Legal Landscape Update: The Future of ICOs and Cryptocurrencies

QuickLaunch University Webinar—Legal Landscape Update: The Future of ICOs and Cryptocurrencies

Speaking Engagement CLE

In 2017, initial coin offerings (ICOs) raised more than $6 billion in capital and the value of the cryptocurrency market grew exponentially. This unprecedented growth did not go unnoticed by regulators around the globe, including the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), who are now applying closer oversight and in some cases filing litigation against fraudulent offerings. Before entering the market, startups should pay close attention to regulatory guidelines and understand their options and the risks involved.

We invite you to join WilmerHale Partners Glenn Luinenburg and Jennifer Zepralka and Special Counsel Petal Walker as they provide an update on ICOs and the cryptocurrency market and what to expect going forward. Discussion topics will include:

  • Benefits and risks of ICOs to raise funding in today's market
  • Recent actions by the SEC and CFTC
  • Global regulation of cryptocurrency
  • The impact of increased regulatory scrutiny on the ICO market in 2018 and beyond
