Crowd Investments and Digital Assets
September 4th 2020, 12:30-13:40
As the spread of coronavirus infection, new sources of financing began to play an increasingly important role in providing financial resources to enterprises and people.

The vast majority of funds from the largest crowdfunding platforms in the EU and the USA were used to provide a wide range of support to hospitals, ambulances and medical personnel: from providing funds for the purchase of mechanical ventilation apparatus, masks and other medical devices to paying for taxi services and meals for all medical personnel.

Nevertheless, as many experts note, despite the significant growth of new sources of financing, their future remains ambiguous - key constraints remain and impede their further development - digital insecurity and fraud, as well as over strict government regulation.

How can the further development of crowd investment and digital assets be ensured? Can they replace traditional sources of financing in the future?
