Where's the Risk?
Qualifying and Valuing ICO Opportunities
About The Webinar
In recent years, cryptocurrencies have eclipsed the returns of traditional investment classes such as stocks or real estate. However, liquidity issues and sheer volatility facing this infant and loosely-regulated market have most sophisticated investors and institutional players still on the sidelines, waiting to see if cryptocurrencies can be considered a serious investable asset class.
In particular, the 'ICO' (Initial Coin Offering) model continues to be a hot button topic, increasingly gaining support and legitimacy as it turn the traditional venture capital funding model on its head. Understandably, given the lack of regulation and highly speculative valuations in recent ICOs, most traditional and institutional investors have yet to allocate investment capital to the asset class. But this could soon change as regulatory and valuation clarity emerges.
This webinar will touch on the current state of ICO regulation in Asia and the core challenges of ultimate responsibility and remedial actions by investors. Through the lens of experienced investors and advisors, our expert panel will discuss how to qualify and value ICO opportunities, highlighting the risks and red flags investors need to be wary of along the way.
