ICOs are the hottest topic in the financial markets going into 2018 and ICO funding was five times higher than equity funding in 2017. Their rise has been astronomical, but are they here to stay? Is this sustainable or is it another symptom of a bubble? What will the ICO market shape into during this year?  Will the ICOs such as Telegram’s open the floodgate and impact the VC and IPO business going forward? In other words; should the traditional VCs be quaking in their boots? We've put together a stellar set of panellists to discuss these, and more, topics about the ICO sphere.
