Webinar Series: Financing in Uncertain Times

The uncertainty unleashed by the pandemic has led to challenges for businesses and their investors. Financings are being delayed or cancelled, valuations reduced and the size of investment rounds are down. There are opportunities too. Creative businesses and investors are getting deals done. Gowling WLG is hosting a series of webinars designed to explore, analyze and help our clients and friends understand some of the alternate sources of financing available and how to access them.

In this webinar, Gowling practitioners will discuss the impact of the pandemic on the blockchain industry and financings. Like other emerging sectors, the blockchain industry has been significantly impacted by the uncertainty of the pandemic. Access to finance has become increasingly difficult for blockchain companies, particularly start-ups. At the same time, the industry has seen a resurgence, given the stronger societal push towards a digital-reality, efforts by central banks towards realizing central bank digital currencies, and also strengthened crypto assets.

Join our panellists in a discussion of how the emergence of COVID-19 has impacted the blockchain sector. Our panelists will provide an overview of financing trends in this space, discuss the unique challenges and opportunities facing blockchain businesses, and also discuss relief options available to start-ups as a result of the pandemic. Our panelists will also outline other key developments, including litigation trends, that may impact the blockchain sector.
