A Tech Open Air Satellite Event
7.00pm, 19 June 2018 @delodi, Oranienplatz 4, 10999 Berlin-Kreuzberg
TechLaw~Talks Berlin and delodi are excited to take part in Tech Open Air 2018 by offering the third in this series of talks exploring the interface between technology and the law as a Tech Open Air Satellite Event. With over ten years of experience in data privacy law and a doctorate in contract law, Dr Jörg Kaufmann will discuss the ramifications of the new European General Data Protection Regulation on the development and implementation of blockchain technologies. Whilst many have described the subjection of blockchain technology (including cryptocurrencies and smart contracts) to data privacy regulations in terms of a collision with disastrous consequences, this talk will investigate both the limitations on blockchain technology posed by the new laws, as well the possibilities of blockchain precisely as a means of data privacy.
