The presentation gave an overview of cryptocurrency and initial coin offerings regulations in Singapore which highlighted important factors for ICO aspirants planning to launch a token generation event in Singapore, including the choice of jurisdiction, clarity of thought, the importance of getting appropriate legal (and tax advice), paying attention to all relevant details, having a good roadmap and robust business plan, working with intermediaries, the quality of the whitepaper; and endeavouring to set a yardstick in this industry.
