Financing business’ growth: why not through ICO?
28 May, Brussels
Over US$11.4bn is reported to have been raised in 2018, compared to US$5bn in 2017, by way of token offerings popularly known as Initial Coin Offerings (ICO).
By that measure alone, token offerings have arguably become an important means of fundraising. The regulatory and tax treatment of ICOs is, however, often complex and unclear. Since token offerings generally involve multiple jurisdictions, that complexity is compounded by the number of jurisdictions involved.
In this seminar, organised in collaboration with the University of Antwerp, we are looking through the hype to explore the regulatory, technical, legal and tax challenges around ICOs.
