On Friday, 6th May at 12:00 PM, join Reed Smith counsel, Kari Larsen as she co-presents the Lunch & Learn: Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain Technology--Truth or Dare? The Lunch & Learn will seek to answer questions such as: Are cryptocurrencies commodities, securities or currency? What does the term “blockchain” reference? Are blockchains truly alternative technologies that can replace legacy financial institution systems or is it all just hype? What regulatory and legal challenges does each face going forward?
