Title: Blockchain: A Financial Regulatory Cryptogram
Speaker: Dr. Evan C. Gibson, Research Assistant Professor of Faculty of Law, HKU
Abstract: Blockchain is typically associated with cryptocurrencies and in particular Bitcoin. However, blockchain can function quite differently to the mainstream perception. For example, in recent years divergent blockchain designs have been adopted by financial regulators in the area of financial market infrastructure. In this presentation, Dr Gibson examines various design considerations and types of blockchain to elucidate the cryptogram between this emerging technology and financial regulation.
