Blockchain and cryptocurrency are terms that you’ve probably heard, but which may leave you scratching your head. K&L Gates and the ABA Forum on Communications Law’s Digital Communications Committee will present this one-hour webinar designed to provide an overview and a practical understanding of what blockchain technology is, how it works, and how it can apply not only to your legal practice, but in your everyday life. You will also understand how cryptocurrencies like bitcoin actually work, and why smart contracts are important, even if they are mis-labeled. If you ever wanted to know more about how and why you should use cryptocurrency, now’s your chance. From financial transactions to Facebook, we’ve got you covered.


  • Andrew Hinkes, Co-Founder & GC of Athena Blockchain, National Blockchain & Digital Currency Partner at Carlton Fields, and Adjunct Professor by NYU Stern Business School & NYU School of Law.
