This was a really interesting talk on the legal concepts behind crypto currencies and how they can be best regulated from Quadrant Chambers.
It was particularly interesting to hear about how North Korea are building their reserves of crypto currencies due to the fact they are harder to trace, can be laundered many times and independent from government regulations. In North Korea certainly, it appears that crypto assets are being used to fund its weapon program.
The speakers also set out how crypto assets are being classified in court and how they are being treated in our justice system. There is now a lot of case law which sets out that crypto currency and most recently NFTs are being treated property.
Another interesting section was on how to ascertain the correct jurisdiction to hear cases on crypto currency.
Worth a listen!
