    MARCH 16 & 17, 2018


ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) are popular among cryptocurrency and blockchain start-ups and have exploded in the past few months.
The total amount of money raised via ICOs in April 2017 was just under $100 million, but by June 2017 ICO funding amounted to over $550 million, surpassing angel and seed VC (venture capital) funding.
The rapid development of blockchain technology and the cryptocurrency market poses new challenges and questions, and the uninformed of today will be the bystanders of tomorrow. Starchain 2018 is your chance to benefit from the unrivaled know-how of world-renowned fintech experts, right here in Silicon Saxony!

Jane Zhang



Are you an investor, entrepreneur, startup, or simply interested in current developments or the latest technologies such as Blockchain and Crypto Finance? Then you could be one of the stars who will change the world.
Blockchain is the technology of the future. To date, the Internet and cloud computing have produced new, innovative companies, but the changes that are coming our way are far greater and defy our imagination.
Listen to what global experts have to say about the opportunities and risks, and get answers to the important questions:

ICOs are often called VC destroyers. Is that true?
What does this new way of crowdfunding mean for entrepreneurs, investors, and startups?
What is the difference between IPOs (Initial Public Offerings) and ICOs?
How does Blockchain relate to Industry 4.0?

…and much more

Brandon Smietana, one of Bitcoin’s early developers, will evaluate the differences between Crypto Currency’s technical platforms. Jane Zhang (China), a well-known angel investor of Alibaba, UTStarcom, and VIPS, will analyze the impact of Blockchain on the global society.
