Conference summary

Topic: Some keys to understanding legal regulations related to Blockchain and cryptoassets

Blockchain is a new technology that wants to be decentralized and deregulated.

However, national and international institutions still wish to establish a legal framework.

Some countries like France have established standards that should be understood before wanting to set up a “Blockchain / Crypto” project.

The legal framework for this field is not yet perfectly established and risks already exist, making legal expertise essential.

Conference summary

Topic: What to expect from regulators?

What to expect from regulators in the future is an harmonized regulation, particularly at the European level, allowing digital asset service providers to benefit from the European passport and a more protective regulation for investors, in particular retail investors.

What industry professionals are entitled to expect from regulators is a balanced and proportionate regulation that should not be punitive and which would not restrain initiatives, particularly at EU level, and that allows for the development of a mature ecosystem that is competitive with the rest of the world and that regulates and supervises when necessary, without excess or prejudice.

  1. Which industry do you think will be next new being regulated by EU, after MICA (Markets in Crypto-assets)? Why?
  2. For a new start up building the business model based on blockchain technology, but not running on financing area (for example cryptocurrency), what’s your advise for the start up to run the business?
  3. From law and regulation perspective, how would you recommend industrial leaders to prepare themselves from now, in facing blockchain future?

Optimizing supply chain management is a guarantee for the growth of international trade.

This is the case of the dematerialization of the maritime bill of lading, which has been seen by operators and researchers as a real “sea serpent”.  Odette will talk how to solve this problem through Blockchain.

In 2011 was when he heard about bitcoin and was interested in investing in the same but this was a time when buying thing on Amazon was considered risky for the parents of a then high-school student. He started exploring his interest in blockchain technology in the year 2016. During his course in Germany, they had to pitch for various ideas on startups, where he pitched an idea for a decentralized platform for filmmakers which would connect producers and actors and make the industry a little more transparent. The pitching of this idea was at the time of the “Me Too” movement which made the timing perfect and offered a solution to a real problem. This then made him to continue to explore the various uses of blockchain through various industries. He then went on to work at BigchainDB, company behind the Ocean Protocol. He then completed a dual degree from emlyon and WHU-Otto Beisheim School of Management. Following this, he joined IBM as a Digital Strategy Consultant and working on blockchain projects for CAC40 companies. He also worked independently with art galleries to trace the art as well as verify its authenticity. He then moved to Berlin to do consulting as a freelance and picked up a client who works on digital currencies for enterprises. He is currently also working on his book which will be published in 2022 which is a work of fiction based on his Masters thesis. In this book, AI and Blockchain have replaced traditional governments. He continues to explore the space of blockchain, DeFi, and learn new developments in them.

Conference summary

Bilel will present applied cases on the following topics:

1) Law and Regulation: Worked with the Government of Maharashtra (India) for the registration of cars. He would also like to present a demo video of the software that was implemented. This helped the police verify digitally the entire lifecycle of the car.
2) Law and Regulation: He would also like to present his Master’s Thesis which involves a tool for decision making that would enhance democracy where people could vote on laws using blockchain which would prevent the problems faced by developing nations such as corruption and also in general give transparency to the entire political system.
3) Law and Regulation: (If time permits) Although not implemented, when the presenter was working at IBM, he worked on a project for the traceability of expensive bottles of champagne in China. This use case shows whether the bottles were tampered with, and also shows the traceability and authenticity of the bottles as there is a huge problem with expensive liquor. These assists lawmakers fight counterfeiting in China with the use of blockchain.
