Date: April 5th 2019, 8.30am – 10am
Where: Fieldfisher Frankfurt
The development and implementation of Blockchain powered business models in Germany has exploded in recent times. This has been fuelled by ground-breaking initiatives from government and the executive including the proposal for DLT-based "electronic securities", Bafin-approved STOs and Crypto Currency Investments Funds, issuance of commercial papers via block-chain without an analogue parallel process and a Blockchain strategy for Germany. These 2019 developments provide new opportunities for competitive advantage throughout many industries .
