Abstract

Virtual Currency Law: The Emerging Legal and Regulatory Framework by V. Gerard Comizio is one of the first casebooks to explore the emerging legal and regulatory framework governing virtual currency activities under a wide range of federal and state laws, including securities, banking, commodities, money transmission, payments systems, commercial, anti-money laundering, fintech, cyber and data security, tax, Constitutional and international laws.

Virtual Currency Law is one of the first books specifically suited for use in a law school course exploring the emerging legal and regulatory framework governing virtual currency activities. Since the advent of the first virtual currency (Bitcoin) in 2008, a new global financial ecosystem has emerged, composed of an increasing number and variety of digital assets. In this context, the book explores how governments, regulators and legal experts are increasingly looking to existing securities, banking, commodities, money transmission, payment systems, commercial, anti-money laundering, fintech, cyber and data security, tax, Constitutional and international laws to address the unique, novel, and complex issues presented by virtual currency. The book also explores how the ubiquitous nature of virtual currency has led to it being viewed as the legal and regulatory equivalent of a wide range of traditional corporate and financial services products, services, activities, and investments.
