Blockchain, FinTech & the Law Conference
Blockchain is a foundational technology that promises to disrupt the way networks and markets currently operate. Essentially, it is an open, decentralized and trust-based system for organizing and maintaining information.
With the recent explosion of cryptocurrencies in the world, the term “Blockchain” and “FinTech” has captured the imagination of technologists, regulators and policy-makers alike.
However, the potential applications of Blockchain technology go far beyond the banking and finance sector, and include emerging domains such as e-commerce and social media, e-governance and e-voting, smart grids and public utility infrastructure, real estate, healthcare and the legal industry, to name a few.
Now is the perfect opportunity to discuss the adoption and regulation of Blockchain and Financial technology, including important public policy issues relating to governance, accountability, legality, privacy and information security.
With this objective in mind, World Law Alliance is organizing this Virtual Conference to bring together industry associations, entrepreneurs, government officials, lawyers, civil society members and academics to provide unique perspectives and practical insights on the adoption and regulation of Blockchain and FinTech.
