“The circulation of confidence is better than the circulation of money.”
– James Madison (June 20, 1788)

Emerging in 2008, Blockchain technology is disrupting global industries including banking and finance. But we in the legal world largely know (and misunderstand) it only by perception of its flagship application: Bitcoin.

Join us as we go beyond Bitcoin to the underlying decentralized technology eliminating middlemen in every industry. We’ll examine the origins and evolution of Blockchain cryptography technology and its current and future applications in securities, insurance, real estate holdings, business contracts, and voting – both corporate and governmental. In entertainment law, we’ll examine, among other things, Blockchain’s vast intellectual property implications, including its ability to give artists greatly increased leverage and enhance control over their creations.

No prior experience with Blockchain needed! Bring your current understanding (or lack thereof) as we examine Smart Contracts and Initial Coin Offerings and how we can prepare our practices for the next generation of the internet: distributed ledger technology!
