Confusion abounds about Bitcoin, and the market technology that helps keep the alternative currency market transparent and stable: Blockchain. Compounding this confusion is the reliance on insufficient analogies used to describe aspects of these systems like “wallets”, “coins,” and “miners.” These abstractions gloss over important nuances in how the bitcoin system actually works, and creates a hazard for regulators, policymakers and academics who use these analogies to shape law and policy decisions.

In this talk Patrick Murck — Berkman Fellow and Co-founder of the Bitcoin Foundation — unpacks Blockchain and some of the complicated property law issues that it poses.
