Lecture: Understanding Cryptocurrencies

On Monday May 3rd, Urios online multidisciplinary lecture on cryptocurrency and regulation will take place.

Since 2009, there has been a radical new way of making payments. The creation of the first decentralised peer-to-peer payment system, Bitcoin, has led to the creation of a novel and booming set of payment services- known as ‘cryptocurrencies’.These digital currencies are not created or backed by any government, which naturally leads to new challenges in regulation and law. Our speakers will shed more light on how this new technology is currently being regulated, what the policy is and who the authorities are when it comes to (the trade of) cryptocurrency. We will look at some flaws and some welcome changes to the current regulation. During this evening we will also learn about challenges cryptocurrency poses to criminal prosecution and the new dimension blockchain and virtual currencies present to cases of money laundering, fraud or trade in illegal goods.

Our lecture will take place online, starting at 7.30 PM. Register via the link below to receive the zoom link:
