    The Splendors and Miseries of Security Token Offerings

    Speaker: Donn Krassiyenko, Investment Research Manager, Blockchain & ICO at Techemy Capital

    Topic Abstract – “The Digital Revolution has brought us to a threshold of a whole new world called “the Internet of Value”. Enabled by blockchain, it allows both businesses and individuals to digitally capture, democratise, securely transfer, and rightfully own the value they possess, whether it is personal data, real estate, company shares, fine art, gold, or goodwill.

    For one, blockchain allows start-ups to get easier access to capital. By tokenising business value and opting for ICO crowd-funding models, companies have raised nearly US$30 billion in funds in 2018. This presentation will take you through the latest blockchain investment trends, shed the light on winning practices, and navigate you through turmoil ahead of the rise of security token offering (STOs)”
