Risk and Return of Crypto-Assets and ICOs
February 28, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| HKD60
In 2017, the economy has shown a huge acceptance towards cryptocurrency, the first recognizable form of Digital Asset, as a medium of exchange and store of value. In 2017, Bitcoin has experienced a growth of over 1,300% valuing at US$14,000 by the end of 2017. Ethereum, the smart contract platform, which brought the ICO craze to the market, has increased by over 9100% in 2017 valuing at US$ 756 by the end of 2017.
Seemingly, the exceptional performance of cryptocurrency and the lucrative upside opportunities in ICOs has attracted many retail investors into the market. Over 90 crypto-asset funds have been set up in 2017 alone, focused solely on cryptocurrencies.
However, does the retail investors really acknowledge all the risk involved in investing in Crypto-asset and ICOs?
We have gladly invited David Demmer from Cryptam, a cryptocurrency investment firm, to tell us about the risk of investing in crypto-assets, boiling down a variety of different risk measurements to be considered. We have also invited Nio Liyanage, Jack Haung, Nicole Pabello and Max Song to repesent the perspective from a traditional venture capitalist, ICO advisor and investor and Crypto Exchange.
