 With law-makers around the world considering their regulatory response to cryptoassets, cryptocurrency and blockchain, we take stock of recent developments in the UK and place them in the context of the global landscape. We will also look at what is coming out of the English courts including the work of the UK Jurisdiction Taskforce. By attending this seminar, delegates should gain insights into the direction of travel on emerging issues such as the FCA’s taxonomy for cryptoassets, the question of whether cryptoassets are property or can be the subject of a security interest, and whether smart legal contracts give rise to binding legal obligations. We will also touch on the latest thinking on related issues including the prudential treatment of cryptoassets, custody, liability, jurisdiction and governing law. Please note registration for this seminar will open at the start of October.
