Blockchain Enabled Innovation – Crypto and Beyond

Virtual assets and blockchain technology offer the potential for innovation across nearly every sector. But virtual assets come in many forms and serve many unique functions. Virtual collectibles, digital securities, and asset-backed stable tokens, now equipped with programmatic capabilities, are new tools for a new industry.  Attorney James Gatto, an expert in blockchain, intellectual property, and licensing, will explain the many different functions and uses for digital tokens and how regulatory frameworks in the United States are developing around them.

About The Event:
This forum will feature three innovators in the law for a discussion on some of the legal frameworks being challenged, influenced, and redefined by the distributed technology.How are digital assets affecting global finance and how are countries taking action? How is the legal concept of a "corporation" challenged by tokenized ownership, and should machines, ledgers, algorithms and other autonomous artificial agents enjoy natural rights? What risks and opportunities does emerging technology present to data privacy, data protection, and the health care industry?
