Product description

Review

The book provides an excellent survey of the legal implications of blockchain, and of the legal challenges FinTech entrepreneurs are facing when they want to develop blockchain applications. It shows that blockchain clearly is not the answer to everything, but that it can make a difference in many aspects of FinTech and beyond. (Dr. Robert Kilian, General Counsel and Chief Representative, N26 Group)

Regulating Blockchain is an impressively rich and interdisciplinary collection of essays on all aspects of blockchain development, including cryptocurrencies and other forms of decentralized financial technology. Essential reading for anyone interested in the interaction of law and technology in the financial sector and the possible futures of money, banking, and credit in a globalizing world. (David Singh Grewal, Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley. Author of 'Network Power: The Social Dynamics of Globalization')

Product Description

Less than a decade after the Financial Crisis, we are witnessing the fast emergence of a new financial order driven by three different, yet interconnected, dynamics: first, the rapid application of technology - such as big data, machine learning, and distributed computing - to banking, lending, and investing, in particular with the emergence of virtual currencies and digital finance; second, a disintermediation fuelled by the rise of peer-to-peer lending platforms
and crowd investment which challenge the traditional banking model and may, over time, lead to a transformation of the way both retail and corporate customers bank; and, third, a tendency of de-bureaucratisation under which new platforms and technologies challenge established organisational patterns
that regulate finance and manage the money supply.

These changes are to a significant degree driven by the development of blockchain technology. The aim of this book is to understand the technological and business potential of the blockchain technology and to reflect on its legal challenges. The book mainly focuses on the challenges blockchain technology has so far faced in its first application in the areas of virtual money and finance, as well as those that it will inevitably face (and is partially already facing, as the SEC Investigative
Report of June 2017 and an ongoing SEC securities fraud investigation show) as its domain of application expands in other fields of economic activity such as smart contracts and initial coin offerings. The book provides an unparalleled critical analysis of the disruptive potential of this technology for
the economy and the legal system and contributes to current thinking on the role of law in harvesting and shaping innovation.
