Georg van Daal about Cryptocurrencies and Regulation at the Legalink Mexico conference 7 November in Mexico City

Georg van Daal, partner Ekelmans & Meijer, will lead the panel session, which is open for public, on the topic Cryptocurrencies and how they should be regulated or not. 

“As an increasing number of people get involved with cryptocurrencies in some way, regulators have taken a keen eye on the industry.
But it’s not just bitcoin they are looking at. The crypto-space has continued to develop exponentially, and with it different use cases have been found for this technology, that disrupt the way that we used to do things.
The developments have brought a varied response from regulators across the world in several different areas. Each authority has looked at various parts of the crypto-world from mining to trading to initial coin offerings, and assessed how they should be regulated.”
 
The forum, an open public event, will focus on the following topics: 
  • Cryptocurrency regulation around the world: How are countries addressing the topic.
  • Are cryptocurrencies securities?
  • Structuring Initial Coin Offerings: A Lawyer’s Perspective
  • Litigation experiences in the unregulated crypto space
 
The four-panel session’s will be led by Legalink members who are experts in this field, such as Alfonso López-Ibor, from Spain; Jean Farrugia, from Malta; Maria Grazia Colombo, from Italy; Georg van Daal, from Ekelmans & Meijer, the Netherlands; Keishi Yoshikawa, from Japan; Robert Long and Christopher Trowbridge, from Dallas, USA; Don Malecki, from Pittsburgh, USA; Jorge Mestre, from Miami, USA; David Zou, from China and Diego Ramos Castillo, from Mexico.
