Cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, ethereum and dogecoin saw a record $9.3 billion inflow in 2021. Governments and regulatory bodies are racing to keep up with the explosion of cryptocurrencies, marketplaces and exchanges, and other digital assets such as NFTs.

Thomson Reuters is hosting a two-day conference discussing risks and rewards for the global crypto community. Will anticipated oversight bolster or derail palpable momentum heading into 2023?

The conference, which will be conducted both in-person and online, features experts from across corporate, legal, tax, and regulatory realms who will offer comprehensive guidance for both casual observers and industry veterans alike. Register for the event, which takes place April 14 and 15.

Co-chair of the conference, Bradford Newmann, partner at Baker McKenzie, and chair of the AI & Blockchain Subcommittee of the American Bar Association, discusses some of the topics that the conference will address in a new podcast.
