Crypto Disputes: How do legal jurisdictions based on physical geography meet the challenge of digital assets?

18 May
16:00 - 17:00

Whether it is the ease with which cryptocurrencies ‘cross’ jurisdictions or the global customer base seeking redress from losses leading to the insolvency of FTX, digital assets present a challenge to the fundamental notion of private international law based upon physical geographies. Join a panel of international experts to discuss this hot topic. The session will identify and examine some of the jurisdictional and applicable law issues which arise in the context of digital assets, cover the approaches taken so far in jurisdictions including in England and Wales, the US and the UAE, and the merits of different possible solutions.
