Blockchain technology– the new, distributed platform that removes intermediaries from the equation and resolves the trust issue – has brought fundamental changes to almost all industries and business models by enabling novel ways of transacting. The technology brings tremendous challenges to established principles, rules, laws, and regulations and has captured the minds of digital innovators, the wider financial industry, regulators, and governments alike who are now facing increasing pressure to support innovation while ensuring that the regulations and policies needed to hold stakeholders accountable for the communities they intend to serve are in place.
Even though this technology is still in its infancy, there are endless possibilities for Blockchain that could completely transform the way businesses are conducted. While countries around the world are trying to find out an appropriate approach to regulate Blockchain’s use and applications, individuals and organizations should now assess its related risks and legal challenges. Today, we witness that, different countries are approaching or attempt to regulate the use of Blockchain in their own way, i.e. some countries are welcoming, other are cautious, or demonstrate resistance to apply the technology. There is no doubt that, regulation, supervision, and global coordination will of course enable Blockchain to become mainstream. To ensure this, a harmonized and pro-innovation approach to the results brought by the technology and the way it is regulated is needed.
This training course aims to consider the emerging issues in the regulation of Blockchain technology and examine the potential need for additional or adapted legislation. In this course, participants will understand that the wider the adoption of Blockchain technology across the world, the greater the innovation, which is vital for businesses and societies. Furthermore, the most important developments in relation to regulating the use of Blockchains shall be discussed and assessed, including certain pieces of regulation that have already been in place as well as initiatives, directives, views and positions of global bodies, key jurisdictions, different countries’ regulators and authorities.
