What laws for the token economy?

 Registration is closed for this event
What laws for the token economy? Blockchain and its applications have been heavily debated in recent years. So far, the controversial digital currencies probably remain the most successful blockchain-based innovation. However, multiple other use cases are being tested in different economic sectors: finance (notably for post-trading of securities), energy (including for grid), health, mobility, media, etc. These solutions already trigger many issues in respect to customer and asset protection, and the misuse of the technology for criminal purposes. At this conference, senior practitioners, high level officials and other experts will discuss the best policy approach to address those issues. In particular, the focus will be placed on the “Blockchain Act”, soon to be adopted by the Principality of Liechtenstein. This ambitious piece of legislation poses clear questions on how and to which extent should the possible emergence of a token economy be regulated and enabled? What could be the value-added of a multi-sectoral legislation? Should such rules go beyond the list of key principles? How could minimum requirements for activities on blockchains be defined? Finally, what legal construct should be adopted for digital tokens? Sponsored by the Mission of Liechtenstein
