Robert M. Russell Moderates A Panel Entitled “Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Technologies: An Industry Perspective” At The FBA’s 2022 Tax Law Conference

March 3 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

On March 3, 2022, Robert M. Russell moderates a panel entitled “Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Technologies: An Industry Perspective” at the Federal Bar Association’s 2022 Tax Law Conference.

Description: The incorporation of rapidly evolving cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies into the mainstream economy has undergone a substantial recent acceleration. Consistent with that trend, the infrastructure bill passed into law last year added a definition of “digital assets” to the Internal Revenue Code and expanded information reporting for transactions in cryptocurrency is on the horizon. Meanwhile, compliance challenges remain a focus of significant attention for industry, taxpayers and the government with a number of regulatory agencies working to apply existing legal frameworks to these emerging technologies. This panel provides a roundtable, industry-focused discussion of the broad range of tax and other regulatory issues raised by transactions in cryptocurrency.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Understand how blockchain technologies are playing an increasingly important role in the mainstream economy.
  2. Identify challenges in applying existing tax and other regulatory regimes to transactions in cryptocurrency.
  3. Evaluate legislative and regulatory approaches to addressing compliance challenges presented by transactions in cryptocurrency.
