Blockchain and the Law Series: Part 1 – Modes of Regulation

Agenda

Discuss the ramifications of blockchain technology on financial regulations, securities law, consumer law, tax, privacy, and competition laws.

In this blockchain meetup in Makati, the panelists will be tackling the legal, regulatory, and policy implications of open blockchain networks.

As blockchain decentralizes the way we manage data and transactions, the “middleman” is going to take a reduced role once this disruptive technology becomes mainstream.

Also, as smart contracts and decentralized organizations become commonplace, a number of institutions could lose their authority over the activities of people. Such institutions include government agencies, centralized authorities, and more. And if one to a number of few blockchains becomes globally accepted, creators of these blockchain projects might become the new set of trusted third parties.

The widespread deployment of blockchain, it is argued, will lead to an expansion of a new subset of law, termed “Lex Cryptographia”. Proponents argued that there must be a focus on how to regulate blockchain technology and that the law should be factored when designing blockchain networks.

For the first part of the series, a lecture will be presented on the convergence of two modes of regulation: 1) law and 2) architecture, the latter in the context of blockchains.

Notes

Advisory:

The Blockchain and the Law Series will differ significantly from our usual meetup format. The focus of the event will be to educate our community on the legal aspects of blockchains. Unless you are very interested on this special area and will actively participate in the conversations, or if you are easily bored by academic presentations, we advise you to skip the lecture series and stay tuned for upcoming meetup announcements.
