On October 11, we held a specialized conference in London – ICO Event London. We aimed at bringing together those engaged in the ICO industry (Initial Coin Offering, a new type of cryptocurrency fund raising) or interested in exploring its certain aspects.
The event involved 12 experts from the UK and other European countries as well as 250 attendees, the most active participants of the cryptocurrency community. It was our great pleasure to receive positive feedback from conference visitors and to discover that a lot of them found new partners.
