The cryptocurrency market is undeniably growing in popularity. According to Tokendata, one of the more comprehensive ICO trackers, over 902 Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) were launched in 2017, of which 41% were regarded a success. This year got off to a similar start: the first three months of 2018 saw ICOs collectively raise $6.3. billion – well over the total for 2017. ICOs are clearly an opportunity to raise some serious funds, but the failures can also be astronomical – in 2017, the total funds raised for failed ICOs amounted to more than $100m.

If you’re looking to launch an ICO and raise funds for your business or project, you might well be wondering how to do it without imploding. “Don’t commit fraud” is obviously a good start, but it’s also worth thinking about the conditions for success – and failure.

Our upcoming panel at London Tech Week on ‘How to Launch a Successful ICO’ is for anyone who is considering launching an ICO, raising investment or just interested in learning more on the topic. We’ll be discussing ICO successes and failures, with an exclusive preview of a new report on ICO companies.

Our special guests include:

  • David Gerard, Unix System Administrator and author of “Attack of the 50 foot blockchain: Bitcoin, Blockchain, Ethereum & Smart Contracts”
  • Davide Vicini, CEO at Maveric SA
  • David White, CEO at Keybox
