Experts will discuss the real cost of cryptocurrency in the modern world, the main failures among ICOs and new formats, alliances, and technological unions in the market; they will also answer the questions “Who is making money on the cryptocurrency market now?” and “Who uses blockchain technology and how?” and try to predict how cryptocurrencies will develop in the future, how blockchain technologies will be applied in 5–7 years, what will happen to the ICO market and whether IEO can become an alternative option to raise capital in projects.
