In 2018, Bitcoin prices plummeted but blockchain applications developed rapidly. Governments have stepped up enforcement actions against ICOs and crypto-exchanges. Those same governments, however, and the private sector have confidently embraced the underlying blockchain technology for a host of applications – from identity management to supply chains and financial markets. Why do cryptocurrency actors face a myriad of law suits? And why do companies and governments increasingly rely on blockchain nevertheless? Privacy (EU GDPR ) and money laundering are just some of the legal risks facing blockchain and crypto-token providers. Blockchain developers are slowly attempting to design solutions to improve legal compliance, some more successful than others.
