For two years, Blockchain, Crypto Currencies and und Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) have been gaining traction. The media reports daily and has brought the attention of the broad public. With the crash of Bitcoin in 2018, the comparisons to the dot.com bubble have been increasing. Assuming that due to this development, the Blockchain technology will fail would be a mistake. Companies have gathered more knowledge than ever before; they invest more and more resources and are working on new strategies and business models. Regulators are looking intensely at the implications of the new assets.
To support these developments and share knowledge and progress in the area, the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center is organising the second Crypto Assets Conference at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management on February 25 and 26, together with mit KI decentralized and financial.com.
Professor Dr Philipp Sandner, Head of the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center, looks at the conference as a kind of reunion for the crypto community: “Our conference brings together the leading experts in the areas of Blockchain, Crypto Currencies and Finance from all over Germany as well as from international companies and institutions. In addition to the European Central Bank and the German Financial Supervisory Authority BaFin, we welcome the most important representatives from companies and start-ups available in Germany.”
The Crypto Asset Conference will offer discussions on the current challenges of the industry: How are crypto assets regulated and taxed? What are the developments in Germany and Europe? What kind of business models are behind the various Blockchain start-ups? What impact will Security Token Offerings (STO) have on traditional IPOs? How will Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) evolve?
