At The Cutting Edge Of Cryptocurrency Law
Assisting Clients Capitalizing On The Vast Opportunity Present
It is undoubtedly one of the most exciting times for technology and innovation in general but blockchain and crypto in specific. By all accounts, we are in the early innings of witnessing the overhaul of legacy financial systems that have not been updated in decades, if not centuries. The efficiencies, security, and decentralization brought about by peer-to-peer cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (₿) and Ethereum (Ξ), including the ability to transact and store value effectively in an increasingly digital world, brings about immense dispersion and opportunity. However, great opportunity brings significant corresponding risk, including as it related to legal ramifications. As a result, regulation and enforcement action is ramping up, and it is more important than ever to ensure compliance with cryptocurrency’s complex and patchwork style regulatory framework.
