Lunch & Learn: Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain Technology--Truth or Dare?

Grand Foyer, 3rd Floor
Pick up lunch at the Networking Boxed Lunch and join your colleagues for an informal discussion regarding cryptocurrencies and the blockchain.  
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?  
(No CLE provided)

Speakers:

Kari Larsen, General Counsel & Chief Regulatory Officer, LedgerX
Yvette Valdez, Counsel, Latham & Watkins
