Description: Business of all sizes, from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, are quickly seeing the benefits of Blockchain technology and digital currencies and are putting them to use. This is especially true for companies in the financial sector which are deploying these technologies to help with everything from capital raising to securities trading to asset tracking. At the same time, lawmakers and regulators have their eyes on the benefits and risks associated with these emerging technologies and are adopting new laws and regulatory guidance both to facilitate their use and to protect the public. Join Mark Rasmussen and David Kern as they explain the fundamentals of Blockchain technology and digital currencies, describe how they are being utilized in the financial industry, and discuss key legal issues for all companies.
