Crypto and digital assets include everything from Bitcoin to bonds to Bored Apes to buildings. They are both a new asset class and a means of digitalisation of traditional financial markets. They are also the currency of the next stage of the internet. In this unique and definitive new book, Charles Kerrigan and a range of expert contributors analyse the law on crypto and digital assets in an integrated way that provides strong guidance and all the answers that practitioners working in this new (and difficult) area of the law need to know.

Crypto and Digital Assets Law and Regulation provides a thorough yet concise explanation of legal fundamentals such as cryptoasset regulation in the UK, Europe and the USA, and the legal principles relating to block chain and distributed ledger technologies. It clearly explains key concepts such as smart contracts, payments, tokenisation, central bank digital currencies, stablecoins, digital asset exchanges, wallets, lending transactions, security interests, decentralised finance, yield, NFTs, blockchain and crypto analytics, fundraising, venture capital investment, taxation, personal data and the blockchain, intellectual property, outsourcing, disputes and restructuring and insolvency.
