Europe’s first ever token sale and ICO exhibition, CryptoFinancing to be held at the luxurious Level 39 Venue in Canary Wharf, London on July 7, 2017.

July 3, 2017, London, UK – CryptoFinancing, Europe’s first ever conference and exhibition on cryptocurrency ICOs, token sales and crowdfunding in the blockchain community, is scheduled to take place on July 7, 2017, at the spectacular Level 39 venue at One Canada Square, Canary Wharf in London. The inaugural event will witness about 25 sponsors, exhibitors and media partners conduct talks on various aspects of ICO’s and token sales to a live audience.

The first-of-its-kind event will also include debates on the nascent industry’s effect on blockchain startups, venture capital, and regulatory environments. In addition, the event will also include detailed seminars on current and previous ICO projects, their structure, methodology, and design. The CryptoFinancing event will be an incredible opportunity for all interested parties to witness some of the leading players in the space discuss how “tokenomics” has overtaken venture capital as the primary financial driver of innovation, for blockchain projects in 2017.

For Startups and Entrepreneurs

The event will also touch upon the different ways blockchain startups can be developed and how they can tap into various funding opportunities. The CryptoFinancing event will be a great learning experience to those planning to start their own company in the cryptocurrency segment. The event talks will also help individuals understand how to open source all their software, structure their company as a non-profit foundation, bypass the VC route, design their own currency while assigning a value and selling it in the process.

The first-time event will run from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM at the Level 39 venue at One Canada Square, Canary Wharf in London. Further specifics regarding the events schedule can be found on the CryptoFinancing website’s events page.

For Investors

The ICOs and crowdsales have on multiple occasions proven themselves to be far more efficient in raising funds than the usual VC route. A phenomenon born from the Bitcoin community is severely disrupting some parts of the venture capital industry. There are recent signs that the venture capital industry is beginning to look at advantages and disadvantages of ICOs seriously, and their potential to threaten their own business model.

This new fundraising phenomenon is fueled by a synergistic convergence of blockchain technology, new wealth, smart entrepreneurs and crypto-investors’ backing. Unlike traditional venture capital investment, ICO’s are something that appeals to not only the savvy investor but also the Crypto-enthusiast. Blockchain startups are also buoyed by the tokenization of their brand, the significant ICO’s bonus token rates and the general ease of the investment procedure.

ICO investors are also offered the freedom to convert tokens to fiat currency in the early stage, through Bitcoin or Ether. The evolution, success, and popularity of recent ICOs like that of Bancor and Status.im have started to interest venture capitalists, who until recently were unconvinced about investing in crowdsales.

The year 2017 has so far not only seen cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum achieve huge gains but also emerging cryptocurrencies born from ICOs. Liquidity is the other main reason venture capitalists are interested. Rather than tying up vast amounts of funds in a startup or a Unicorn and waiting for the long play, like an IPO or acquisition, VCs can acquire gains far quicker in ICOs and pull out profits with ease.

For Governments and Regulators

At the moment ICO’s are the Wild West of financing, they continue to remain in a gray area as the SEC in the United States, and many other regulatory bodies continue to investigate. The prolonged regulatory limbo in the industry is, in-par, due to the to the lack of equity offered by most ICO’s and blockchain startups. Therefore, they fall outside of traditional legal frameworks, in terms of securities.

ICOs do offer discounts on cryptocurrency tokens before they hit exchanges after the ICO, and therefore do not fit into the current definition of security.

Besides, they are considered global instruments, not national ones and they are funded using Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies, which are not controlled by any central authority or bank. Individuals are therefore free to invest in these projects pseudo-anonymously.
