New York, NY – January 22, 2018 – Polymath, the first-ever security token issuance platform, today announced it will host Polycon 2018- the first-ever VIP Securities Token Conference for the blockchain industry.

“We spent 2017 working on our platform, and for the first time in history, security tokens will represent shares in traditional financial assets,” said organizer and CEO of Polymath Trevor Koverko. “Polycon 2018 is going to open new doors to the cryptocurrency and finance industries in the new year, helping connect billions of dollars of institutional capital in a fun, unique, and informative setting.”

“We couldn’t have picked two better partners to help organize and launch Polycon 2018,” continued Koverko. “Grit Capital’s world-leading investor relations expertise, combined with Untraceable’s specialty in designing high profile events tailored to the blockchain industry, will ensure Polycon 2018 is a can’t-miss event for this year and many more to come.”
