It is impossible to ignore the explosive growth in crypto-currencies and Blockchain-enabled means for capital raising. Increasingly, both start-ups and established high-growth tech companies are choosing to raise capital, enrich existing technology platforms or introduce new or novel businesses using Blockchain-enabled technology. Of equal significance is the growing investor interest in crypto-currencies and initial coin offerings.
