Crypto Financing – July 7 – London

On July 7th we organized Crypto Financing London. This event was a great success with over 300 attendees, 44 speakers and 26 exhibitors.

“This was a truly historical event” – BitFin Capital Team

Europe’s First Crypto-Financing Summit, organized by BECON in partnership with Blockchain News.

In June 2017, the blockchain project Bancor raised more than $150 million in their initial coin offering (ICO), with Tim Draper of the Draper Fisher Jurvetson VC fund being one of the contributors. There are currently well over 80 ICOs scheduled for the second half of 2017.

What are ICOs? How are they regulated? Why are traditional investors becoming more and more involved with them?
