Grabowski's talk will cover the legal issues surrounding Bitcoin and cryptocurrency. What are the current and proposed laws in Asia, the United States and other nations affecting Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and ICOs? Which nations are the most crypto-friendly and which countries have banned cryptocurrency? How are private actors helping or interfering with crypto -- Google and Facebook, for example, have banned advertisements related to cryptocurrency. How might government regulation benefit and harm the cryptospace and impact the market? What are the biggest legal challenges lawmakers face in addressing cryptocurrency?
