The rise in popularity and acceptance of cryptocurrencies has corresponded with a rise in litigation concerning cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.  The earliest blockchain cases were generally criminal in nature, but cases today range from federal and state regulatory actions over ICOs to private disputes over mining operations to IP litigation over token names.  It is important for litigators and in-house counsel to understand what the early trends in blockchain litigation look like as many courts are grappling with unique blockchain issues for the first time. 

In this One-Hour Briefing, Daniel M. Payne from Murphy & McGonigle P.C. will explore the following topics:

  • Litigation trends over the past two years following Bitcoin’s all-time high in December 2017
  • Key rulings in 2019
  • Approaches used by courts to decide complex blockchain issues
  • Litigation analytics derived from Murphy & McGonigle’s Blockchain Litigation Database
