Digital currencies have been creating quite a stir in the payments industry. Whether it is Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Darkcoin, or any other coin-of-the-crypt – regulators can’t seem to decide on the best way to handle their presence.
Tomorrow afternoon BitPay and Payment Week will be presenting a special free webinar online to take a look at the current regulatory environment of cryptocurrencies.
With an in-depth look at the regulators, the legal definitions, exchanges and futures this webinar will prove an interesting one.
The webinar will feature Tim Byun the Chief Compliance Officer at BitPay, Carol R. Van Cleef from Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP, Houman Shadab the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Taxation and Regulation of Financial Institutions and will be moderated by Felix Shipkevich from Shipkevich PLLC.
