With cryptocurrency coming into the mainstream after the Bitcoin boom, it is worth understanding the complex legal implications of cryptocurrency from experienced fraud barristers before diving head first.
Cryptocurrency has become all the rage in recent years, but few investors fully understand this elusive industry. Businesses permitting customers to use cryptocurrencies to buy products and services should also be aware of possible complications and legal considerations. Consulting professionals for legal advice could avoid pitfalls that ultimately harm your organisation.
On Friday, February 22nd, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) will be holding a Cryptocurrency Seminar in Melbourne to discuss all matters concerning cryptocurrency. If you are considering trading or investing in any form of cryptocurrency but are overwhelmed by the resources online, this beginner half-day seminar can help you grasp cryptocurrency basics.
The seminar will kick off with a comprehensive overview of cryptocurrency trading, with interactive discussions and real-life case studies. Once everyone has the foundations, the seminar will move onto more specialised aspects of cryptocurrency tracing.
If you want to learn how to trace cryptocurrency, this seminar will also help you keep up to date with an ever-changing regulatory environment. Two sessions will be dedicated to helping you identify ways to investigate cryptocurrency assets as well as insight into judicial ramifications of cryptocurrency issues.
Fraud Barrister Andrew Tragardh will be joined by Aaron Lane – Lawyer and Lecturer at RMIT Blockchain Innovation Hub – to discuss the legal implications for investigators trying to track down cryptocurrency. Andrew is a qualified fraud barrister with extensive experience in recovering misappropriated assets. He specialises in commercial disputes and white collar crime. In this third session of the seminar, Andrew and Aaron will explore privacy, property rights, economic uses, regulation, governance and jurisdictions surrounding cryptocurrency. They will break down each issue so you can walk away with in-depth knowledge of your rights and responsibilities.
ACFE’s Cryptocurrency Seminar will be hosted at PwC’s Melbourne office from 7:30AM – 12:00PM. Discounted early bird tickets are on sale now – click here to book. Breakfast is included prior to the first seminar session.
