CRYPTO20 has seen a robust start to the ICO period with over 3,000 international backers and more than US$6 million in total funds raised to date. The ICO will close on 30 November 2017.
CRYPTO20’s ICO introduced a new cryptocurrency paradigm based on an autonomously managed “cryptocurrency portfolio” where participants can buy a single C20 token, which holds balanced positions in the top 20 cryptocurrencies as underlying crypto assets. The groundbreaking index, optimized using data science principles, offers investors a way to track the performance of the crypto markets by holding a single crypto asset, the C20 token, while providing full blockchain transparency through secure smart contracts.
Danilov & Konradi’s advice covered international legal, tax, and government compliance matters, securities regulation, the legal token purchase agreement, white paper review, and corporate legal matters.
“CRYPTO20’s ICO was unique in several ways,” explains lead attorney, Brian Konradi. “The CRYPTO20 team had already built their platform before going to the market, but they were needing to incorporate legal advice prior to their launch. Together with their advisory group partner BLOCK512, we were excited to help guide the CRYPTO20 team through the legal aspects of launching an entirely new kind of token.”
CRYPTO20’s ICO is the firm’s first project in cooperation with BLOCK512, a consortium of experts providing insights, advisory, and acceleration services for Blockchain enabled solutions and ICOs. In September 2017, Danilov & Konradi LLP partnered with BLOCK512 to promote each other as preferred advisors in the ICO marketplace. “Having Danilov & Konradi team as a legal partner brings a higher level of compliance to the CRYPTO20 ICO,” said Jeremy Drzal, BLOCK512 Founder, and CEO. “Brian and the D&K team helped navigate the many complexities that can arise during an ICO.”
