Program Description: The Whats and Whys of Cryptocurrency Unfurled

What is cryptocurrency? What is Blockchain? How do they work? What are exchanges? And what are the legitimate uses of cryptocurrency?

  • To many people, the term “cryptocurrency” remains shrouded in mystery.  Even with the increased attention given to Bitcoin, the most well-known and widely-used cryptocurrency, many people have little to no understanding of the topic.  Moreover, “blockchain technology,” which is the technological innovation that allows the Bitcoin system to operate, has actual and potential uses that go far beyond Bitcoin itself.  And both cryptocurrency and blockchain technology are posing legal and regulatory challenges, as governments, lawyers, entrepreneurs and others struggle to apply established legal rules to these new technologies.
