Gardere attorneys Edward H. Block, Eric Levy and Peter S. Vogel presented the webinar titled “Blockchain Legal Risks.”
Many people are familiar with the online currency "bitcoin," but many do not understand that blockchain is the technology that permits the internet to have its own monetary system. In January 2017, the Food and Drug Administration signed a contract with IBM to utilize Watson (its artificial intelligence technology) to better protect electronic medical records using blockchain technologies. Since data may be stored on the cloud anywhere around the world, it is essential to understand the laws that apply to your own use of blockchain. This webinar will educate you on blockchain and offer some insights into what the future may bring to currency, contracts and cross-border transactions.
