The SEC and the Future of Crypto
Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | 3:00 - 3:50 PM
1023 Walnut St. | Boulder, Co  80302
Co-Presented by: Peter F. Waltz


As cryptocurrency and initial coin offerings (ICOs) gain popularity, the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) has increased their focus on companies that are conducting ICOs. The SEC is providing increasingly frequent guidance on the securities laws that apply to ICOs and has commenced enforcement actions against firms that are using this fundraising model. The panel will provide guidance on what the SEC has said about ICOs, the risks of conducting ICOs that do not comply with U.S. securities laws, and how entreprenuers can conduct lawful offerings of digital assets.
