In the past years, cryptocurrencies have attracted the attention of investors, consumers, academics, and regulators from all over the world. While they have been used for several purposes, cryptocurrencies originally emerged as a means of payment. This webinar will analyse the potential of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment, the legal and financial challenges of adopting cryptocurrencies as legal tender, and whether the new form of assets, mainly relying on blockchain technology, will reshape the future of money and payment systems.
