Blockchain-Startups-Summit-FFM


We (EU-Startups) joined forces with the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center to organise the first edition of the Blockchain Startups Summit on November 15 in Frankfurt.

As part of exciting talks and panels, the speakers will tackle some of the most interesting topics in the blockchain space today – for example, the advantages and disadvantages of ICOs versus traditional VC funding or in which cases the blockchain is adding real value to startups and in which cases it might be just used because it’s trendy.
