Blockchain: Distributed Ledger Technology is Changing EVERYTHING
MCLE: 1.5, A&A: 2.0
“The circulation of confidence is better than the circulation of money.” – James Madison (June 20, 1788)
Emerging in 2008, blockchain technology is already disrupting global industries, but the legal and accounting world largely know (and misunderstand) it only by perception of its flagship application: Bitcoin.
Join us as we go beyond Bitcoin to the underlying decentralized technology that is eliminating middlemen everywhere. We’ll examine the origins and evolution of blockchain’s cryptography technology and its current and future applications. In particular, we’ll examine the technical challenges that blockchain and cryptocurrency create in legal discovery processes, new business models created by implementation of blockchain and their potential valuation techniques, and a discussion of the areas of potential (and actual!) fraud. No prior experience with blockchain needed! Bring your current understanding (or lack thereof) and come to discuss how we can prepare our practices for the next generation of the internet: distributed ledger technology!
1-2:40pm - Session 2
