DF attends Finance Malta-organised seminar on Blockchain technology: MyBlockchain - Episode#2: It’s Everywhere.

On the 7th of November, 2017, Finance Malta organised a half-day seminar to further discussion on a topic which is gaining much traction in the finance industry: Blockchain Technology. DF, in keeping abreast with all current developments in this field, was in attendance.


Discussions centred around several dynamic applications which could be revolutionary in many areas, including Digital Marketing, Data Protection, Remote Gaming, Regulated Initial Coin Offerings, Cryptocurrency, and even real-life applications of the Blockchain technologies such as electoral voting systems. Speakers appearing were Megan Frydel, Michael Mandelli, Jonathan Galea, Kyle Pullicino, and Leon Siegmund.


Dr Jean C. Farrugia, partner in charge of the financial services practice at DF noted that “whilst it is clear that the innovative applications of Blockchain technologies are growing at an exponential rate, it will be interesting as to how the regulatory environment will adapt to these changes.” DF Advocates is actively monitoring all progress in the regulatory field surrounding ICOs, cryptocurrencies, and Blockchain. DF Advocates is also currently involved in a number of initiatives in this sphere and is also presently involved as the legal advisor to one of the first ICOs in the Maltese islands.
