About the Program

Blockchain can be confusing: learning what's what means learning about hashes, private keys, mining, basic math, and lots of other things which are alien to the rank and file private practice lawyer. Get a plain English review from a knowledgeable practitioner of the basics of blockchain, as well as the regulatory landscape lawyers need to be aware of when serving clients in the business of cryptocurrency.

You Will Learn

  • What a blockchain is and how it works, in plain English
  • What a blockchain is not and what claims about blockchain should be regarded as suspect
  • Common issues encountered in cryptocurrency practice

Who Should Attend

Any attorney interested in learning about the basics of blockchain and cryptocurrency practice.
