Program Number: 2707

Program Date: 04/06/2017

Description

While many people have heard of Bitcoin and other digital currencies, few understand the technology that powers them—the digital ledger system called blockchain. And fewer still appreciate that Fortune 500 companies, governments, and start-ups alike are all racing to develop their own custom blockchain systems to use for their projects, such as capital raising, title tracking, document management, securities trading and settlement, or management of smart contracts, just to name a few. Join our presenters as they explain the fundamentals of blockchain technology and digital currencies, including key legal issues to keep your eye on and emerging trends that are on the horizon.
