Panel: Law, Regulation and Operational Risk

Panel: Law, Regulation and Operational Risk

Moderator: Constance Choi

What are the relevant laws and regulations for blockchain technologies? What opportunities and challenges might regulators face when building new regulatory frameworks for crypto-currencies and other blockchain-based applications? How do we address the increasing “regulatory gap” that subsists between technological innovations and the pace at which the law can evolve? What are the common operational risks for these based applications and how can stakeholders address the common development of best practices? Are there proven methods for emergent technologies to gain foothold into existing systems while minimizing risk?
