Blockchain Talk (Akld) – Architecture vs. Law in Blockchain-Based Systems – Liesl Eichholz

12 July, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Blockchains: How We Regulate Them, and How They Regulate Us

Unlike centralised systems, blockchains inherently evade regulation by governments and other central authorities. This talk examines the extent to which the law can constrain underlying blockchain architectures, and the way in which blockchains regulate human behaviour as we regulate them.

Please RSVP below.


Our speaker, Liesl Eichholz, is a full-time blockchain enthusiast, student and researcher. She is currently writing her LLM (Master of Laws) thesis, focusing on developing New Zealand’s regulatory approach towards blockchain technologies. She is also a committee member of the Blockchain Association of New Zealand, and works for ConsenSys, a blockchain venture production studio.

The venue for this event has been generously donated by Duncan Cotterill.

What is the blockchain?

Blockchain is the first successfully tested distributed ledger technology. The technology is a catalyst for the Age of Decentralisation, paving the way for business models that have not been possible before. It is providing us with new opportunities for human achievement.
