Tickets through Eventbrite, you must register here to attend.

ICO's skyrocketed in 17 and grew even further in '18 but in the latter half of the year we saw a steep decline in the # of ICO's. With few ICO's being profitable and a misalignment between investors buying tokens and communities wanting to use the token do ICO's have a future and if not what are the alternatives?
