Description

The QMUL-UNIDROIT Institute of Transnational Commercial Law is pleased to annouce the second event in its new Lecture Series:

Bitcoin and insolvency : realising the value

A talk given by Louise Gullifer, Professor of Commercial Law, University of Oxford.

The new forms of assets made possible by the development of blockchain technology, such as ‘crypto-currencies’ raises many interesting issues, not least the legal analysis of the nature of such assets. Are they property, and, if so, of what type? This lecture will examine the position on the insolvency of the owner of bitcoin, and the exchange on which those bitcoin are held and traded.
