We are excited to bring tokenomics guru Richard Kastelein to speak on "Tokenomics and the Future of Innovation Financing." If you want to peer into a crystal ball to see what 2019 has in store for bitcoin and blockchain, there is no better expert than Richard.

We first met Richard at a Silicon Valley blockchain event, and he continues to be one of the most knowledgeable guides we know in the blockchain space. Richard will not just present learnings from the Initial Coin Offerings and Security Token Offerings he has worked on (nearly 100 to date), he will also talk about tokenization and shifting to a new form of economics. This is about disintermediating not only venture capitalism, but the beginning of a shift to liquidity being created by the people, bottom-up -- that threatens the banking system as a whole.

Richard is the founder and publisher of industry publication Blockchain News (EST 2015) at, partner at ICO services collective ($500m+ and 90+ ICOs), director of education company Blockchain Partners (Oracle Partner), and ICO event organiser at Tokenomicon. A Vancouver native now living in Holland, he sits on the advisory boards of some two dozen blockchain startups and has written over 1500 articles on blockchain technology and startups at Blockchain News, in addition to features in Harvard Business Review and Venturebeat.

He's a top 20 ICO and STO advisor at ICOBench, and Irish Tech News put him in the top 10 Token Architects in Europe.

Whether you're a traditional investor, seasoned trader, or just crypto-curious, come listen to Richard's video presentation, followed by a discussion on new blockchain investing opportunities, where we can share our knowledge, and learn from each other.
