Talk: Blockchain, the world without intermediaries

Fecha: 13 of july

Hora: 7:30 am - 8:30 am

The Masters in International Law with an emphasis in International Business Law Program invites to a free chat on the Blockchain impact on traditional finance models.

The Externado Masters in International Law Program has organized a meeting, on July 13, 2017, with the goal to generate approximations to the Blockchain model and identify the legal challenges allowing a proactive approach to the changes brought about by this model.

Blockchain is a shared technology database that serves as a digital ledger to record all purchases and sales transactions made in cryptocurrency currencies, such as bitcoin.

Despite the efforts attempting to adapt to the changes involved in the model, financial entities are the most impacted by the Blockchain. Likewise, automotive records, commercial registers, judges, arbitrators, public instrument ledgers, and even attorneys, are intermediaries impacted by the chain of blocks.

The Conference will be offered by Erick Castellanos, ICT legal business counsel, and consultant, who has also been a senior associate at prestigious law firms such as Baker McKenzie and Lloreda Camacho & Co. The speaker was named in Chambers & Partners as Outstanding Associate in Telecommunications, Media, and Technology.

Castellanos is also co-author of the International Chamber of Commerce Consortium Model Contract. He is an International Business Law graduate from the University of Tilburg in the Netherlands, summa cum laude, confirming his outstanding academic performance. He is a Law graduate from our House of Studies, with a Specialization in Commercial Law, and Regulation and Management of Telecommunications and New Technologies.
