Bitcoin and other decentralized virtual currencies continue to receive widespread attention as they quickly become a major force in online payments. Increasingly, interest is also growing in Blockchain 2.0 applications. Blockchain 2.0 relates to the non-currency use cases of the bitcoin blockchain as a distributed ledger for tracking ownership of various other assets. Perkins Coie’s Decentralized Virtual Currencies group is working with industry participants to navigate the complex issues facing this new crop of companies.

Join us for a panel discussion to learn about the regulatory compliance issues related to Blockchain 2.0 companies.
