Token Regulation Summit Vienna as of 2nd and 3rd October 2017

How to establish a Future for Tokens by getting Regulation and Ethics right?

Tokens come with their own financing model. It is as if you throw the venture playbook out of the window.  If you are a VC and you are not simultaneously euphoric and terrified by what’s going on, you are not paying attention. This completely destroys the existing Venture business model, which is based on proprietary access early on. Now everybody has that.

– Naval Ravikant, Founder & CEO AngelList & Coinlist

We think that not only VC´s should be euphoric and terrified but also start-ups and corporates as tokens (including traditional asset tokens, usage tokens, work tokens, …) will probably be the basis for a new economic model based on distributed ledger technology but first we have to do some basics like regulation and Ethics set to ensure a proper rollout.

Reason enough to organize a SUMMIT of people working in the regulatory, legal and advisory business to talk about what has to be done to ensure that the basics are set right to reap the possible benefits of the upcoming “Token resp. Cryptoasset Economy”.

Attendants of the summit should receive a comprehensive insight into the issues as well as the possibilities of this new phenomenon: CRYPTOASSETS. They should then be able to navigate through the new world, either as a start-up, an investor or a professional services provider.
