About the course
This module covers how blockchain-applications can be qualified from a legal perspective. Participants will learn how blockchain technology fits in the current scope of the German and European legal framework and what approaches for new legislation are currently discussed. The fields of law discussed during the module will have a focus on financial regulatory law, such as banking regulation, anti-money laundering law as well as capital markets law. In addition to that, the participants will also discuss how blockchain-tokens can be qualified under German private law and how GDPR applies to public blockchains.
