Product description

Blockchain and Smart Contract Law: U.S. and International Perspectives is a practical guide for lawyers, accountants, entrepreneurs, and businesses in the technology sector who need to understand the legal and regulatory landscape of digital assets and Blockchain-related technologies. The publication addresses the current state of the law and new interpretations by regulators in response to ongoing innovations that continue to raise novel legal issues and make the enforcement of laws and regulations increasingly difficult. The book examines U.S., Canada, offshore, and international jurisdictions that have become influential in the regulation of digital assets and Blockchain-related technologies.

Blockchain and Smart Contract Law: U.S. and International Perspectives provides a unique analysis of the impact of financial technologies on multiple legal disciplines, including securities law considerations, tax treatment of digital assets, business structuring, anti-money laundering, smart contracts, intellectual property, and estate planning.
