ICO & STO Speed Networking

Is STO the future of ICO?

Following the success of our inaugural Blockchain & ICO Speed Networking event on August 1, 2018, Supercharge™ Blockchain would like to invite you to join us for our 2nd speed networking event. We will be shifting the focus towards examining the future of Security Token Offerings (STOs), while also introducing distinguished, executive-level speakers on the topic of ICOs. Blockchain entrepreneurs will be paired individually with accredited investors and experts in the format of speed networking.

Learn more about the viability of STOs, and how the emerging form of Initial Coin Offering (ICO) will bridge the gap between the world of blockchain and exposure to the free market, leading to increased asset valuation. Gain invaluable knowledge and insight into the current climate of the ICO world. Forge lasting connections with about 25 accredited investors and dozens of Blockchain entrepreneurs and enthusiasts.

Seize the opportunity to meet your future investors, business partners, advisors, talents, or employers, all while admiring our venue’s phenomenal waterfront view of the Hudson River.

During the ICO boom of 2017, the legitimacy of various utility coins was called into question by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Many ICOs were subject to regulations for having the characteristics of securities. In order to continue driving the $5.6 billion explosion of startup financing, a new form of token sale emerged that united the advantages of ICOs and the sale of regulated financial securities in an initial offering. Security token holders are entitled to ownership rights, with the token itself deriving value from an external, tradable asset.

The main course of our event will feature a keynote presentation followed by a panel discussion that covers the latest in ICO & STO regulations and investing strategy.
