The Rutgers Law School Center for Corporate Law and Governance, in partnership with Rutgers Institute for Professional Education, is pleased to present a panel discussion on blockchain technology and its implications for corporate governance and the practice of law. In less than 10 years, blockchain has emerged from a small presence to an established technology and transformative tool. Blockchain is a digital, decentralized ledger that keeps a record of all transactions that take place across a peer-to-peer network. It enables the existence of cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin, a digital, worldwide currency that facilitates instant payments across the Internet without the need for a centralized third party. Blockchain has potential applications far beyond capital markets. While it may have many benefits, it also has many risks and will impact corporate governance and financial regulation — among many others fields.
