Digital assets regulation in the UK is in its nascent stage. This roundtable, hosted by the Digital Monetary Institute and the UK Law Commission, explores the potential directions in which the UK legal system could go.

The conversation explores the themes arising from the Law Commission’s ‘Digital assets’ consultation paper which covers the current legal considerations for cryptotokens, non-fungible tokens, as well as the extent to which current property and contract law is applicable, a potential new third type of property asset class and more.

Professor Sarah Green also provides legal insights into the delicate balance to be struck between international harmonisation on digital assets regulation and the signature adaptability afforded by the UK’s common law system.
