This past summer was the Summer of the ICO. In this talk, I will lay out the basic structure of cryptocurrencies, the blockchain system that underpins it, and the rise of ICOs.

I will then discuss financial, social and legal implications of cryptocurrencies. These range from the nature of fiat currency, how crypto arose, current securities and other legal issues related to ICOs and crypto, financial issues relating to the use of crypto and valuation, and social issues attendant with cryptos.

Finally, I will discuss best and worst use cases, as well as the investment tips and flags as they are becoming clear.
