The regulation of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency, two closely related technological developments, is a one of the pressing issues in technology law and policy. It is a question being examined by practitioners, regulators and academics alike. This panel discussion aims to bring these diverse perspectives to the same table to share and combine their diverse insights, across jurisdictions.

For the uninitiated, a blockchain is a decentralized digital ledger of all transactions, stored across a peer-to-peer network. Using this technology, participants can confirm transactions without a need for a central clearing authority. Applications of this technology include cryptocurrency, smart contracts, voting etc. Cryptocurrency is a medium of exchange, created and stored digitally in blockchain, using encryption to control the creation of monetary units and to verify transfers.  Bitcoin, Ethereum and Dogecoin are prominent examples of cryptocurrencies. In India, cryptocurrencies are not legal tender, and their regulation is still under consideration. In 2018, the Reserve Bank of India attempted to ban trading of cryptocurrencies by Indian entities. However, in 2020, the Supreme Court of India, reversed this prohibition and allowed exchanges to function.

This panel discussion largely aims to examine the question of how to regulate cryptocurrencies. The panel shall also examine the scope for cross-border regulatory coordination, analyse the competition law and economics implications and the private law challenges that exist, in treatment of cryptocurrencies.
