This episode features a discussion on Cryptocurrency. What is cryptocurrency, and what are the rules that apply to this increasingly popular, but complicated financial instrument? For those seeking to be in the business of exchanging crypto, what registrations and compliance programs are necessary to meet regulatory requirements? How should crypto exchangers and other financial institutions address crypto transactions involving unhosted digital wallets, or requirements that counter-parties in certain crypto transactions be identified and reported? Our Ballard team will help answer these complex questions and explain why it’s important to seek counsel before transacting business in cryptocurrency.

Participating in this discussion are Mike Robotti and Marjorie Peerce, both of whom are Partners in Ballard’s New York office; and Peter Hardy, a Partner in Ballard’s Philadelphia office. Mike, Margie, and Peter all focus on representing the White Collar Defense and Internal Investigations practice.
