08.30 -09.00 Registration and Coffee
09.00 – 09.05 Opening of Conference
Nils Veenstra
Director, BECON (Ireland)
09.05 – 09.30 Keynote Presentation: Getting to ICO 2.0
Tom Wills
Director, Ontrack Advisory (Singapore)
If 2017 was a giant party for ICOs, 2018 is the hangover afterwords. The sharp drop in cryptocurrency prices after their dizzying all-time high in December; exposure of scams and other misdeeds in the ICO space; and increased activity by global regulators have combined to force an evolution in how ICO campaigns will be managed moving forward. ICO 2.0 will be a more disciplined and down-to-earth approach to this still nascent fundraising method. The good news is that for many companies, it’s still a great alternative to traditional VC funding.
09.30 – 09.55 The Legally Compliant ICO/TGE: Securities Regulation, SAFTs, and Beyond
Gordon Einstein
Managing Partner, CryptoLaw Partners (USA)
Conducting a legally compliant ICO/TGE is more challenging than ever and government regulators are watching every move. Yet, confidently complying with the global patchwork of laws and regulations, and exploiting the vast opportunities provided by certain legal structures, can produce both peace of mind and also enhanced access to capital and customers. Learn about the latest legal developments relating to ICOs/TGEs, how to spot legal red flags, and how to stay on the good side of the SEC/FCA/MAS.

10.45 – 11.10 Panel: Developing a blockchain ecosystem
The impetus to form the Digital Assets Trade Association (DATA) is the need for a single trusted voice and continued crypto/blockchain industry support as more states, regions, and nations create legislation such as the five crypto legislative proposals out of Wyoming—including HB 70, a bill that classifies utility tokens as a separate asset class. All five proposals have passed the state legislature and are now headed to Wyoming Governor Mead for his signature in the coming days. DATA has incorporated in the forward-thinking state of Wyoming in part due to this landmark event in the crypto/blockchain space.

Nerijus Saksauskas
Head of  Araneobit
Any bank, payment system, online wallet has its own fee for funds transfer, for system maintenance and for currency conversion. When the first money changers, moneylenders and Hawala brokers started to operate at the ancient oriental bazaars, they introduced the fees for their services. Nowadays this kind of fee is collected by bankers and the owners of money transfer systems who earn billions on the commission. This happens because there is no alternative, no any safe, secure and accessible system which allows to transfer funds from one country to another. We have created such an alternative. Our service is a global P2P net where the users can transfer money abroad and to skip the classical banking system. We ensure the security of money transfers and give the opportunity to save on fees and commision thanks to direct arrangements between the people. AraneoBit is a project devoted to bring evolution in money transfers between the countries.

Bankorus is the first AI-powered, crypto-wealth management platform and security token marketplace built on the blockchain.
Our mission is to unlock the more than $60,000,000,000,000 USD ($60T) in traditional assets held by high net worth individuals (or HNWIs) and move it into crypto. HNWI  now only hold less than one-hundredth of a percent of their wealth in crypto. Traditionally, HNWIs are always the first big movers into a new asset class. We believe crypto is no different, and Bankorus will be the main platform where HNWIs move into crypto.
Powered by AI and built on the blockchain, Bankorus provides HNWIs with a full suite of safe, KYC-compliant solutions for accessing crypto. Turn traditional or illiquid assets — real estate, farmland, art, chateau, VC/PE, hedge fund, bonds,etc — into liquid digital assets through tokenization. Buy and sell digital assets on our security token marketplace. Even borrow crypto against existing assets. Bankorus is a transformational opportunity to present a lucrative new asset class — cryptocurrency — to a historically aggressive, early-adopter investor, the HNWI.
