Blockchain. Bitcoin. Smart Contracts. DLT. Crytocurrencies are all buzz words.

More likely than not you may have heard of them but do not know a lot what they truly are about?

Here is an article I previously wrote on the basics about Blockchain.

Blockchain and its associated technologies are still industries in their infancy.

The net sum of this new technology is a mixture of hype, excitement, opportunity, confusion, complexity and uncertainty.

The issue of course is it is still early days.

So the legal and compliance and risk management around Blockchain and associated technologies are still uncertain and untested.

There is no one central guardian or custodian of it. No government, bank, authority, multinational nor any individual is solely responsible for it.

Indeed it is and has been by nature quite fragmented, diffuse and dynamic in its development.


That is why it is so important that businesses take time to learn about it and understand its potential use and application.

As commercial lawyers, we can clearly see the benefit of blockchain as a technology that will transform business.

But we can also see past all the “game changing” and “disruption” hype as well.

With Blockchain, getting early and proper advice from lawyers and advisors that understand the technology matters.
