Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), enabled by blockchain technology, have generated excitement as well as criticism. Please join Mayer Brown partners David Beam, Jennifer Carlson and Philip Niehoff for a lunch-and-learn as they discuss real-world uses of ICO and answer these questions:

  • What is an ICO?
  • What is the SEC’s position on ICOs, and what does this mean for the future of token sales?
  • What does it take to conduct a successful and compliant ICO?
  • When is a party involved in an ICO subject to laws regulating virtual currency, such as the New York BitLicense regulations?

For additional information, please contact Patricia Holland at or +1 312 701 8835.
