Matthew Comstock (Murphy & McGonigle): CryptoLex 2018 was a great conference because we had a lot of panelists from regulatory agencies, from the industry, from academia and folks practicing law as well; all here to talk about crypto currencies and Blockchain and crypto assets.
Kwon Park (Bittrex): Yeah, I think this conference will be beneficial because just the breadth of knowledge and expertise that that some of the panelists had, it wasn't just a conference where people are trying to promote their token project or or market their business. It was it was actually very substantive and the panelists really knew the law and how it applies to, you know, crypto currency and Blockchain companies.
Andrea Tinianow (Delaware Blockchain Initiative): ...that I thought it could be an economic driver for, for the public sector, at state level, at county level, that there were things that the states have. In Delaware we were looking at corporate registry information and financings, financing statement information, UCC information. That that information really could be monetized through Blockchain technology.
Jeff Bandman (Bandman Advisors): It was interesting to have the state regulators or the state organizations from CSBS and NASAA. There was some discussion of issues that I hadn't really heard before about Bitcoin or virtual currencies under the UCC and you know, there was some interesting attendees, so I thought it was very worthwhile afternoon.
Daniel Payne (Murphy & McGonigle): And the best part of today was that we got to go really deep on some interesting securities issues that hadn't been explored before, and also exploring the role of federalism in the governance of Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain technologies.
Dr. James Angel (Georgetown University School of Business): So in much the same way as Uber and Lyft bypassed a lot of the issues with taxis and came up with a much better service, with this technology, we can come up with a much better structure for the way we trade, clear and settle securities transactions.
Cameron Matheson (Murphy & McGonigle): We had a great time, had a chance to show off our Blockchain Litigation Database. We're excited to show people that and our rollout, where we're tracking 160 cases and counting. We're looking forward to showing it next year when we're sure there'll be many more cases to demonstrate.
