Come gather ‘round people wherever you roam because, with apologies to Bob Dylan, in the past year the blockchain and cryptocurrency waters have grown. In less than a year these topics went from obscure lore to a multibillion dollar question on most everyone’s mind. From tokenized securities to decentralized ledgers to smart contracts, blockchain technology will fundamentally change the landscape of financial services and real estate as we know it – and fast! In one minute, an initial coin offering (ICO) raised $36 million for a new venture. In one day, cryptocurrency markets can experience Great Recession-level gains and losses. And in the time it took you to read this, a techie in Silicon Valley probably developed another application of blockchain technology to transform an entire industry.
If your time to you is worth saving’ then you better start swimmin’ and we at Dechert are here to help. In order to keep you up to blockchain speed, we at Dechert are excited to provide the Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Tracker, where we cover all of the latest developments in the cryptocurrency and blockchain spaces, including regulatory status updates, tax implications, the use of real estate tokens and ICOs and more.
So if you don’t want to sink like a stone, subscribe to receive email alerts or visit the Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Tracker for more tales from the crypt(o) (and other mediocre puns). And if you want to talk about all of this, please reach out to Rick Jones, Bruce Bloomingdale or Tim Spangler for more information about how blockchain technology continues to affect finance, real estate and securitization matters.
