Cryptocurrency, blockchain technology and fintech companies are well experienced in dealing with legal and regulatory issues that are unique, unprecedented and global. While usually creative and oriented to solving problems, even the most flexible of teams are stretched with the onslaught of issues unfolding in the wake of COVID-19.

In this webinar, attorneys from Bradley’s Blockchain & Digital Assets team will help you sort through basic legal and regulatory issues affecting day-to-day operations, tackle key provisions of the CARES Act that impact your business, address thorny questions around raising capital in this new environment, and explore potential new opportunities for your business. Kristen Smith, Executive Director of the Blockchain Association, will provide her organization’s perspective on how COVID-19 is changing the public policy agenda for the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry in Washington, D.C. and beyond, and discuss how the digital dollar proposal and the most recent developments in the Telegram case may impact this agenda.
