Presentación libro “Cryptoregulation in a Nutshell”
19 mayo, 2020 el 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
El próximo 19 de mayo Pablo García Mexía, J.D., Ph.D., Jurista digital. Of counsel, Ashurst LLP y José Morales Barroso, Ph.D., Socio Director L&M Data Communications, presentarán su libro “Cryptoregulation in a Nutshell” en un encuentro virtual organizado por Blockchain Intelligence.
Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs) are one of the most disruptive digital technologies for Humankind. This is the case in the financial field, since DLTs embody the technological engine of a cryptocurrency of notorious success, Bitcoin. Blockchain, however, is much more than Fintech, its possible uses being manifold already today.
This is the case with private blockchains (owner-controlled), no matter how modest their technological and legal interest may be. And with public blockchains as well (such as Bitcoin or Ethereum), whose revolutionary technology generates equally revolutionary consequences on the legal sphere, which in fact explain the very birth of this book, where public blockchains take a central place.
“Blockchain runs over the Internet”, and in fact, it works like the other protocols built on the “application” layer of the Internet, for example the World Wide Web (WWW). When invented in 1989, also the WWW was only “one more protocol”, which joined the pre-existing email, among others. By 1995, the WWW had revolutionized the Internet and was largely responsible for its massive social emergence. Nothing should prevent Blockchain, also “just another protocol”, from generating similar results.
This is what we believe, the authors of this work, which tries to condense the key technological aspects of Blockchain, together with the main challenges and contents of its legal regulation, while at the same time, in a very synthetic way, provide answers to the many doubts that this promising technology has raised in the legal and regulatory field.
