Fintech law and regulation: blockchains, distributed ledgers, smart contracts and cryptocurrencies

Distributed ledgers, blockchains and smart contracts have the potential to transform business, government and society. Financial institutions, in particular, are exploring the possibilities that distributed ledger technology offers them to streamline and automate many of their processes and to offer new products and services.

Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are the most high profile applications of these technologies. However, the range of potential applications extends far beyond cryptocurrencies and includes, for example, trade execution and settlement systems, trade finance, supply chain management, asset registration, identity management (including for anti-money laundering and know your client purposes) and corporate governance.

As financial institutions, governments and companies move from research and development to deployment of distributed ledgers, blockchains and smart contracts, they need to consider carefully the legal and regulatory implications of, and risks presented by, these transformative technologies.

Law, regulation and risk
Distributed ledgers, blockchains and smart contracts represent a radical departure from traditional operating models. Careful legal and regulatory analysis will be required as part of the risk assessment involved in using these technologies.
