Share with:

Be a part of the nation’s premiere forum on blockchain & distributed ledger technology. Ensure that you are prepared for the operational, legal, regulatory and compliance issues that can arise and gain critical insight and strategic knowledge needed in this new and emerging area.

“Blockchain” is THE buzz-word for the financial industry right now and the regulatory challenges are myriad depending on the particular use and application of the technology. As more traditional financial companies are turning their attention to the blockchain, regulators across the globe are doing the same. That’s why it is essential that in-house counsel and compliance professionals, as well as their outside counsel, stay current on the latest ways that the blockchain technology is being looked at, all the potential applications it can be used for, and what legal and regulatory implications the different applications will potentially create.

Building on the incredible success of our Prepaid Card Compliance and Emerging Payment Systems series of conferences, and in response to demand from the market, American Conference Institute has developed its premiere National Forum on BLOCKCHAIN & DISTRIBUTED LEDGER TECHNOLOGY: Innovation, Operation and Legal & Regulatory Implications. The first conference of its kind, it will bring together an unparalleled faculty of in-house counsel and compliance professionals, senior executives from industry-leading companies, high-level regulatory and enforcement officials, and top outside counsel who will provide you with the insights and tools necessary to navigate the legal, compliance, technical, operational and business hurdles arising from these new technologies.

Founder, Publisher and Editor in Chief of Blockchain News and co-founder and director at Blockchain Partners in London/Amsterdam/NYC, Richard Kastelein is also an advisor with a number Blockchain startups doing ICOs including, Inchain, Humaniq, Chronobank, eGaas and others.

He is regarded as one of the top journalists by the Blockchain and fintech communities – as is evident by his entry in the Top 150 Fintech journalists online and in the top 10 of the Blockchain Top 100 List. As a prominent keynote presenter, he has spoken on Blockchain at events in Gdansk, Amsterdam, Minsk, Dubai, Antwerp, Eindhoven etc, where he helped spread the cause for Blockchain technology and crypto-currency and, consequently, has built a notable network inthe scene.

In 2013, the European Commission appointed him as an expert for overseeing financing for emerging startups as a part of the European Commission’s 90 billion euro Horizon 2020 project, created in Brussels to promote innovation as a driving force of job creation and business ventures across Europe. He has also worked as an external expert for Innovate UK since 2012, judging startups for the UK government.
