Event information

The AEB IT-Telecom Committee is pleased to invite you to its open meeting devoted to the ICO – Initial Coin Offering. Last year the AEB It-Telecom Committee was the first in Moscow having organized an event on enigmatic blockchain which is now on everyone’s lips. Now it is the turn of the ICO.

The meeting will take place on Thursday, 16 November, 2017 from 9:30 till 11:00 at the AEB Conference center (Butyrsky val, 68/70, bld.1, Ground floor). The registration starts at 9:00.

Please register online for this event.

This event is dedicated to the Initial Coin Offering (ICO). It is a fundraising mechanism in which new projects sell their underlying crypto tokens in exchange for bitcoin and ether. It is somewhat similar to an Initial Public Offering (IPO) in which investors purchase shares of a company. ICOs are a relatively new phenomenon but have quickly become a dominant topic of discussion within the blockchain community. Many view ICO projects as unregulated securities that allow founders to raise an unjustified amount of capital, while others argue it is an innovation in the traditional venture-funding model. We will try to understand the specific characteristics of ICO; is it a groundbreaking tool or risky and fraudulent one?

Alevtina Kamelkova, Counsel, Baker McKenzie will explain us what ICO is, how it is regulated worldwide and what the regulation perspectives in Russia are; legal risks of ICO for investors will be evaluated by Vadim Konyushkevich, Liniya Prava Law Firm; Alexander Saveliev from IBM will cover the topic of smart contracts.

The meeting will be moderated by Edgars Puzo, the AEB IT-Telecom Committee Chairman.

Working language is Russian. English interpretation will not be provided.
