In India, the government is ready to implement or give leverage blockchain technology but alarmed of cryptocurrencies. India always being known for it's growing IT industries. Even when we talk about blockchain, Blockchain projects are creating new job categories, leading to hiring more full-stack, front-end, and back-end engineers but due to lack of regulations over 80% of blockchain developers in India will be forced to move abroad or work only on foreign projects. One more thing Reserve Bank of India released a statement directing all regulated entities, including banks, to stop dealing with individuals and businesses dabbling in virtual currencies. This amounts to a ban on banks in dealing with companies or individuals that trade in cryptocurrencies. So you can now understand how hard these regulations are! Listen to this episode CryptoKnights Podcast where Varun Sethi is explaining how he is fighting against the legality of the ban on blockchain and cryptos. Who is Varun Sethi? On professional front, I am Lawyer, Chartered Accountant, Company Secretary and Delhi University Graduate with 7 years experience of working with startups in India and abroad, consulting on matters from international fund raise, global structuring solutions, corporate taxation, valuations and cloud accounting.

On Personal front - I am Sunday cyclist, reluctant poet, level 3 ethical hacker and a legal researcher on policy matters of the Indian Government. It was during one such research that we stumbled upon Blockchain Technology, which lead to one research after another and upon multiple communications with the Indian government to get their perspective on Blockchains. We have consulted more than 55 Blockchain projects in India and abroad in the past one year on ICOs / Blockchain products / International Structuring on one hand and dealt with governments on the other hand. It was one such application to Reserve Bank of India (RBI) that revealed that RBI has not done any research or constituted any internal committee or consulted any international central bank before implementing ring fencing restriction disallowing banking entities to offer banking services to all crypto entities in India, which is currently being questioned in Supreme Court as a violation of Constitutional right of freedom of speech. Company - I am the founder of www.blockchainlawyer.in which is a legal consulting firm for crypto advisory, taxation, blockchain entity structuring globally based in New Delhi, India.

Episode 175- What is an Investor presentation vs an Email Deck?
August 27, 2018 06:16 AM PDT

A Crypto or Initial Coin Offering pitch deck is no different from normal pitch deck that people uses in silicon valley. In fact, you can do a google search for best pitch deck if I have to create a pitch deck I will probably go with an Airbnb, Uber etc pitch decks (The idea is to learn from the best pitch decks called as hacking bright spot if someone already created the best, learn from it.) What is an Investor presentation vs an Email Deck? An investor presentation creates curiosity around your idea and it's implementation, how are you planning to solve a specific problem If an investor is asking you a lot of questions around your idea which means you haven't spread the word out, details of your roadmap, how you are solving a problem? why should they invest in your idea what are the things you are doing differently? But an Email deck doesn't create curiosity it just contains more and more in-depth details about your idea. ICO vs non-ICO pitch deck? -The only difference is that your ICO pitch deck along with your business strategies it contains also contains the blockchain aspects of it. - you might wanna add few slides answering those blockchain questions like- Why you need a blockchain solution for this problem? what is decentralized here? Why your solution is awesome? Pro tip: Investors are investing by buying your tokens basically, but due to bad token implimentaion in past many investors lost a lot of money because either somebody stole it or the blockchain smart contract had a loophole. So they are going to ask you a lot of questions regarding the security point of it. atlast security is what matters.
