Founders of Blockchain ventures are swimming in unchartered waters. If they have already raised, now they must make their dream real. If not, they are swimming against the tide of investor apathy. The crypto scene is experiencing a reality check. No plain sailing. Now is the time to refocus on key business fundamentals.

How can lawyers help in this environment? In the crypto community, the lawyer’s role is often reduced to the question: is the token a security? In fact, the legal issues are much broader and deeper than this alone. Lawyers can be the navigation beacons to help founders avoid floundering on the rocks of risk and regulation.

In this fireside chat, Mr. Pádraig Walsh and Ms. Bowie Lau (a.k.a. Ms. Kryptos) are diving deep. Some questions they will tease and tussle with include:

1. What are the legal risks for a blockchain venture that is developed from an existing business?

2. What corporate structures should I consider in respect of my blockchain venture?

3. What contractual framework is needed for running a token sale?

4. Should I protect the intellectual property for the platform?

5. What governance options are there for running the platform?

6. What laws and regulation do I need to know about, apart from securities regulation?

We will be going deep and dangerous in shark-infested waters. Come dive with us! You wouldn’t want to miss it!

Time: 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Date: Thursday August 23rd, 2018

Location: 20/F, Wework, Tower 535, 535 Jaffe Road, Causeway Bay, HK
