Now Available: FinTech: Law and Regulation (2nd edition)

As the year quickly draws to a close, I want to wish BLPB readers a Happy New Year and a wonderful start to 2022!  I also wanted to share some exciting end of the year news: the 2nd edition of FinTech: Law and Regulation (ed. Jelena Madir) is now available (here and here)!  I’m honored to have contributed a chapter, Blockchain in Financial Services, with coauthor Professor Kevin Werbach.  Below, I provide a summary of the book and its contents from the publisher's (Edward Elgar) website.

“This fully updated and revised second edition provides a practical examination of the opportunities and challenges presented by the rapid development of FinTech in recent years, particularly for regulators, who must decide how to apply current law to ever-changing concepts driven by continually advancing technologies. It addresses new legislative guidance on the treatment of cryptoassets and smart contracts, the European Commission’s Digital Finance Strategy and FinTech Action Plan, as well as analysing significant recent case law.”
