Throughout 2019, @Bull Blockchain Law was the U.S. law firm contributor to the European Commission‘s study on #blockchain and #cryptocurrency.
Tyler Harttraft and myself are proud to finally share the fully published Study on Blockchain. Alongside the Spark Legal Network, an EU law research consultancy, we dove into the legality of blockchain, digital assets, and smart contracts across multiple jurisdictions to help researchers, regulators, and industry actors better understand the law.
The overall objective of the Study is to provide evidence and support for policy approaches and concrete actions within the European blockchain initiative and to contribute to the building of an EU strategy in light of blockchain developments. The Study therefore analyses and assesses the legal framework in the EU with regard to blockchain technology and presents policy options where a need for adjustment or clarification is required. Additionally, the Study assesses what the impacts of blockchain and the proposed policy options could be on the economy and society with a view to considering future blockchain policy developments.
