fintechNEXT Webinar Series: Bankruptcy and Cryptocurrencies

November 08, 2022
Webinar | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.

The bankruptcy of a cryptocurrency trading entity (or of an exchange) would pose many unsettled legal questions, from the eligibility of exchanges to file for bankruptcy to the treatment crypto assets within existing legal regimes. Dechert’s Financial Restructuring practice, together with its Blockchain and Cryptocurrency practice, have closely followed these issues both inside and outside the United States.

In this fintechNEXT webinar, partner Shmuel Vasser joined partner Timothy Spangler to discuss these key issues:

  • Eligibility of crypto exchanges as debtors under the Bankruptcy Code.
  • Cryptocurrency as property of the trading entity's (or exchange’s) bankruptcy estate. 
  • Nature and legal status of cryptocurrencies.
  • Cryptocurrency as collateral.
  • Valuation issues.
