Through a legal lens
Existing U.S. laws and regulations governing blockchain technology are minimal, however, authorities are working to align the needs for regulation with the desires to pursue advancement.
We have developed a treatise that provides a comprehensive overview of federal, state, and select international laws governing blockchain technology. Where laws or regulations do not exist, this treatise aims to provide thoughtful analysis of how existing U.S. laws and regulations may apply to the intersection of blockchain technology and a variety of practice areas.
The broad range of topics covered in this treatise illustrates the need for legal practitioners to become acquainted with the technology, to understand how it may be governed by existing laws and regulations, and to become a participant in creating and supporting laws that protect individuals while also giving the technology enough space to encourage innovation throughout the entire blockchain ecosystem.
