overview

Blockchain truly is a revolutionary mechanism to bring everyone to the highest degree of accountability. Above anything else, the most critical application of Blockchain technology is to guarantee the validity of a transaction by recording it on a distributed system of registers, all of which are interconnected through a secure time-stamped mechanism. In today's digital information age, Blockchain represents a critical intersection between the financial world, social networking, and powerful decentralized networks. Stakeholders must formulate careful legal and business strategies that factor in the technology and infrastructure, as well as the corresponding market appetite and regulatory structures in rapidly evolving global markets.


This Blockchain Technology Conference to be held on March 22, 2019 in Chicago, Canada aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of Blockchain technology by focusing on how to address the implementation challenges, make best use of the opportunities and benefit from the innovation and disruption that this technology brings along.


speakers

Opening and Welcome Note
The Information Age has created a New Economy where data is considered an asset. The Economist issue of May 2017 is a testament to this fact. The value of this asset is best manifested by the increased economic domination of a few tech companies such as Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google. However, issues related to data privacy and data governance have become highly publicized especially due to the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook scandal. The fallout from this scandal has led to increased scrutiny of how this data can be regulated. Certainly, regulation makes sense to better protect customer data since in effect customers are the direct owners of this asset. But if customers are owners of their data , shouldn’t they also be remunerated by any organization or entity that uses their information particularly for marketing/advertising purposes. What if there was mechanism that allows for true data ownership where customers control the destiny of their data but in a sound environment of strong data governance and privacy regulations? Enter the blockchain. In this session, we explore how the decentralized nature of the blockchain allows each customer(data provider), to have their own network of entities and companies(data requestors). At the same time, the secure nature of the platform with its data encryption protocols establishes a much robust standard for data governance than seen in in the more traditional centralized type of relational database systems. Think of a future where customers now share in the rewards of this new information economy.” - Richard Boire, Senior Vice President, Environics Analytics
The various topics I can cover include: • Blockchain and securities law (“security” definition, secondary market OTC trades, exemptions); • Blockchain and anti-money laundering (Canada’s new draft virtual currency regulations); • Cryptocurrency and financial instruments (promissory notes and bills of exchange); • Cryptocurrency and financial institution regulations (definition of “banking”); • Cryptocurrency contracts (statutory definition of “money”); • Cryptocurrency and tax (CRA guidelines); and • Cryptocurrency and litigation (securities regulatory enforcement and civil litigation). - Chetan Phull, Founder / Blockchain & IT Lawyer, Smartblock Law Professional Corporation

Blockchain and the Ethical Transformation of Global Supply Chains - Samuel Peralta, Chairman & CEO, Incandence
Many Blockchain start-ups seek to raise money from the public to create, develop and market their platforms by selling cryptographic tokens to the public. Regulators and tax authorities have been scrambling to keep pace with this growing market, and as as a result, many believe that the tax and securities rules are either undefined or non-existent. Nothing could be further from the truth! This presentation is intended to give essential information for those who are looking to engage in and structure an ICO so that they are aware of the risks, benefits and best practices before they land themselves in hot water. - Aaron Grinhaus, Lawyer / President and Blockchain Strategist, Grinhaus Law Firm / Fintech Venture Advisory Corp
