The News Sessions: getting to the bottom of blockchain

Posted on 08 November 2019

It is said that the earliest ledgers can be traced back to 4000BC in ancient Mesopotamia, so maybe blockchain isn't a new-fangled concept after all. But what exactly is blockchain, and do we really need to know how it works to reap its benefits?  

Mishcon de Reya's Head of Communications Hayley Geffin hosts the latest News Session with IP Lawyer Anne Rose, Corporate Lawyer Tom Grogan and Real Estate lawyer Nick Kirby. They demystify blockchain, discuss real life examples of how it's being used today and consider the ways in which it could change the world.  

The News Sessions look at the latest legal headlines, providing insight into the most pressing matters when they are most relevant. Short segments of this recording will be featuring on our Jazz Shapers programme, broadcast at 9am every Saturday on Jazz FM, throughout the winter.

Listen to the last News Session on fake news, online hate speech & the regulation of social media.
