Morgan Lewis is presenting a six-part series on cryptocurrency as part of our Silicon Valley First Cup of Coffee Breakfast Briefing Series. Please join us over breakfast and a cup of coffee for our first session covering bitcoin, blockchain, and cryptocurrencies.

Bitcoin and related distributed ledger concepts are a disruptive technology in a wide range of industries. Now, the legal community is grappling with what these new digital assets are and how best to advise clients working in the crypto space.

TOPICS WILL INCLUDE:

  • A high-level overview of a few of the most popular cryptocurrencies
  • Regulatory requirements implicating blockchain and cryptocurrencies
  • Tax implications of obtaining, trading, and selling blockchain-based assets
  • A discussion of key concerns when using initial coin offerings (ICOs) as a funding mechanism
