The Legal Context of ICOs

Workshop Area

13:45 - 14:30

Workshop 1

This workshop will introduce the actual and legal opportunities presented by Initial Coin Offering and explain its distinction from traditional VC financing. The aim is to discuss whether the expense of an (investment) coin or token can already be considered an alternative to more traditional ways of startup financing. More particularly, Jörg and Sebastian will focus on which legal obstacles exist during an investment ICO and, with respect to current law, what’s possible – and what’s not.
