Overview:

Cryptocurrency and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), digital assets hosted on a blockchain, have become a multi-billion-dollar phenomenon — gaining popularity across multiple domains. However, these have raised a host of novel regulatory and legal concerns involving security regulations, intellectual property rights, and criminal considerations relating to insider trading, fraud, and money laundering.

Hence, investors, high-tech companies, and other businesses looking to capitalize on this fast-growing market must keep abreast of the critical legal issues and developments associated with digital assets.

Join distinguished thought leaders in the crypto and blockchain industry, Malgorzata (Gosia) A. Kulczycka, Ph.D., J.D. (Hickman Becker Bingham Ledesma LLP) and Hannah E. Taylor (Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz PC), as they discuss the recent trends and legal challenges developing in the crypto and NFT space. Speakers, among other things, will also offer practical tips and strategies to steer clear of potential pitfalls.

Key topics include:

  • How do NFTs and crypto relate?
  • What are some of the legal issues with NFTs?
  • FTX Disaster
  • Coinbase’s Rapid Rise Left It Exposed in Crypto’s Collapse
  • Robinhood’s Crypto Unit Fined $30 Million by New York’s Top Financial Regulator
  • Tesla Records $170 Million Impairment Charge on Bitcoin
  • Titanium Blockchain CEO Pleads Guilty to Fraud
