Crypto Assets 101 and Discovery Issues

Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin and hundreds of other crypto assets have exploded in popularity in recent years. Surveys show that more than 16% of Americans have invested in, traded, or used cryptocurrency. Many forecasters expect this trend to continue. 

This CLE presentation will provide a basic explanation of how crypto assets function and explore the various cryptocurrencies, non-fungible tokens (“NFTS”), utility tokens, security tokens, and general blockchain technology. Attendees will learn the principles and concepts with a focus on their application under the law. The second portion of the presentation will examine specific discovery issues that attorneys should consider when faced with a case where crypto assets might be relevant. Participants will gain practical advice on legal issues that may arise related to discovery involving crypto assets.
