Blockchain technology is considered by many to be not only “a game changer” but one of the most interesting technological developments and disruptions in society today, with some saying that this technology will eventually disrupt and transform business and the way we do business as much as the Internet itself.
While blockchain technology can be utilized for many different purposes the best known use of the technology is cryptocurrencies, that are bound to play a significant part of our payment systems in the future, as the financial services industry is generally predicted to be the first industry to be transformed and challenged by blockchain technology.
Porat Group helps the most exciting blockchain companies in the world launch and expand their cutting-edge products and services in an increasingly complex and demanding legal and regulatory environment.
Naturally, these new developments have created a range of unique and often complicated legal dilemmas and issues. Not only regulators but also tax authorities all over the world are frantically trying to familiarize themselves with these new technologies, so that legal gaps can be filled, but in most cases, a majority of issues and matters related to blockchain and/or cryptocurrencies must still be considered somewhat of a grey area in most countries and jurisdictions. (Although cryptocurrency specific legislation does exist in some parts of the world already)
