Blockchain - Inquiry into Cryptocurrencies: Recommendations and Current Updates
Webinar: Inquiry into Cryptocurrencies - recommendations and current updates
Key industry leaders and independent advisors on the report, Jeremy Muir and Alex Sims, will share their insights into the recommendations presented in the report.
This session aims to explore key aspects ranging from the basic creation and trading of cryptocurrencies to their environmental and social impact. We’ll also look at how these digital currencies could potentially affect New Zealand's financial stability, including tax implications and the challenges of regulation.
The independent advisers' report, which produced 22 recommendations specific to New Zealand, will serve as the backbone of our discussion. We'll touch on the darker side of cryptocurrencies, examining their usage by criminal organisations, and acknowledge the fast-paced changes in the cryptocurrency environment, which might make some of the data and recommendations subject to timely revisions.
This is an invaluable opportunity for financial analysts, policy makers, tech innovators, and academics to gain expert insights into the complex world of cryptocurrencies. It's not just about understanding the technologies; it's about participating in shaping New Zealand's policy and public discourse on this transformative financial ecosystem.
