With a market cap over $200B, those who own digital currencies have a lot at stake. Bitcoin and other digital currencies crusade as “trustless” systems, because different nodes in the network do not need to know or trust each other to work together cooperatively. But does this same logic apply to those who hold the keys to the program code itself? Or does it make sense to impose legal duties on core developers in order to provide better protections to those who invest in digital assets? Join leading academics and faculty members Ms. Angela Walch of St. Mary’s University School of Law, Ms. Raina Haque of Wake Forest Law, Ms. Carla Reyes of Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law, and Berkman Klein Fellow Primavera De Filippi for an illuminating debate about their diverse perspectives on this issue.
