Would you like to know more about the legal status of the crypto world?

Then, it is time for you to join us in the legal hallways and start learning how to look at cryptocurrencies from the standpoint of a lawyer.

We will spend time presenting on the various legal issues.  But not only that, we will break into groups (depending on the size of the audience) and work through various hypotheticals–discuss the potential problems and issues, apply the legal rules presented, and then discuss ways to solve any problems. Optimally, someone would bring their actual project to the workshop and we could all discuss.

In other words, get everyone involved. 

However, for the newcomers to the world of cryptocurrencies it is perfectly normal to feel  overwhelmed.

It is also normal to feel confused by all these new terms and concepts associated with trading Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
