“Coins of No Land Meet the Law of the Land” (Moderated by Katherine Cooper) - CryptoLex 2018, New York, NY

Event Date(s): 09/26/2018


Blockchain technology has tremendous potential. But do you really know where it is heading in the financial services arena?

Amidst a dramatically evolving and escalating landscape for blockchain companies, crypto assets and business potential, many of the legal parameters and regulatory guidelines impacting this growing market sector remain undefined, vague and/or in the throes of a turf battle by government regulatory bodies.

In the meantime, blockchain companies face regulatory and business uncertainties.

CryptoLex 2018, an inaugural event focusing on the legal and regulatory side of blockchain technology, will feature experts and speakers providing their perspectives.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Investors, entrepreneurs, financial institutions investing in the crypto asset space.
