(Newswire.net — July 30, 2018) Midway, Utah —Crypto Leader Brock Pierce and FinTech Visionary Mike Novogratz will be joining forces as keynote speakers and ICO evaluators at the EquityICO Business Summit coming to scenic Midway UT, October 19-20, 2018.  This will be the first true Crypto business summit, where people can transact business on sight. There will be 15+ vetted ICOs as well as thought leaders in the crypto space. This event will be a limited access event including accredited investors, family offices, investors and companies exploring the ICO pross as well as thought leaders. 

Following one of the biggest trends in cryptocurrency, this summit will draw many of worlds crypto-experts as well as those just learning. Today Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) are key to understanding the timing and facts around this growing subject.

The idea of preselling coins of a cryptocurrency or token of a blockchain project continues to evolve. ICOs are often used to fund the development of new cryptocurrencies. The pre-created token can be easily sold and traded on all cryptocurrency exchanges if there is demand for them. There are dozens of ICO every month which explore new and creative ways to connect the application with the token and to leverage smart contracts to add more features to these tokens.

The potential of this trend is immense. ICO enables every individual and every company to easily release freely tradable tokens to raise funds. It could be used to completely reconstruct the financial system of shares, securities and so on. It decentralized not just money, but stock creation and trade.

The Summit

The summit provides a business-focused environment, where experts in the business, technology, legal, regulatory, and capitalization of the crypto environment come together to transact business and build business relationships.

With keynote talks setting the stage for each day of business topics, networking, and ICO presentations, attendees will also experience panel discussions on legal, regulatory/compliance, security, exchanges, and ICO production.  ICOs will be provided expert evaluations and coaching by both Brock and Mike, as well as Venture Capitalists, and ICO production teams.
