[Webinar] Resolving Disputes and Contentious Proceedings involving Crypto Assets

1 April 2021, 4.00pm-5.30pm

Overview

The focus of the webinar will be on resolving disputes and contentious proceedings that involve crypto assets ad technology particularly in the current climate where technology is constantly challenging traditional notions of what "property" entails.

Some of the key issues that the panel will look to discuss include:

  • Engagement with the authorities (such as the MAS and/or the police) upon the occurrence of an incident involving a crypto asset (for example, a phishing attack or transfer of a Bitcoin arising from fraud).
  • Seeking relief from the Courts. The speakers will examine the issue of whether bitcoin or crypto assets are "property", as the answer to this question has significant implications on the types of interim relief that can be granted by the Courts (such as freezing injunctions, proprietary injections).
  • Valuing the crypto asset in the context of a dispute, particularly given the volatility of the price of cryptocurrency.
  • The implications of classifying cryptocurrency as property in the context of winding up proceedings. The decision rendered by the High Courts of New Zealand in Cryptopia will be amongst the decisions considered as part of the discussion.
