On 15 December 2017 senior associate Lada Riisna, head of Banking and Finance and M&A of the LEADELL Pilv Law Office, gave a lecture “Cryptocurrencies & tokens – what does the law say about them?“ and presented the Estonian legal framework on cryptocurrencies at the International Seminar on Cryptocurrencies and Tokens hosted by the law firm HMP Law in South Korea.
Blockchain-based cryptocurrencies / digital currencies and tokens are providing new ways of carrying out international commerce and trade. Everyone from Bill Gates to Al Gore agrees that blockchain, cryptocurrencies and tokens have the potential to become massive game changers in the global economy. This seminar explored and compared the regulatory environments in several different legal jurisdictions: Korea, USA, China & Hong Kong, Japan, Switzerland, and Estonia. All of them have been active sites of the sale and purchase of coins and tokens, exchanges and initial offerings. HMP Law invited expert lawyers from each country to outline their current legal frameworks and future outlooks.
