Goodwin Procter Launches New Digital Currency Perspectives Blog

Goodwin Procter today announced the launch of Digital Currency Perspectives, a new firm blog that monitors, chronicles and analyzes news, legal issues and technological innovations affecting clients and the digital currency industry.

Digital currency is an exciting, dynamic and growing technology changing the financial and legal landscapes. To keep pace, executives, corporate counsel, and compliance professionals must stay abreast of new rules, new regulations, and new applications of blockchain technology.

The blog is intended to serve as a resource for the wide range of legal challenges in the digital currency space, as well as interesting new technology. Digital Currency Perspectives aggregates industry news, including regulatory developments and other issues affecting our clients, and provides Goodwin legal analysis and commentary on various legal topics including:

  • Federal and state laws, regulations and proposed regulations
  • State and federal enforcement actions
  • Civil and criminal litigation
  • International law
  • Technological innovation

Digital currency is helping to change the way the world thinks about finance and technology. Goodwin is excited to contribute to this change, and help the industry navigate through it. We expect our readers will find this blog interesting and informative,” said Grant Fondo, a former Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Northern District of California and editor of Goodwin’s Digital Currency Perspectives blog.

The blog will be led by Fondo, a Goodwin Procter partner, and will feature content contributions from other partners and associates in the Securities Litigation, White Collar Defense, and FinTech practice groups.
