[Seminar Series FS21] New Legal Framework for DLT-Business Models

Details

Prof. Dr. Rolf H. Weber (UZH)

Abstract

Switzerland wants to become a “Blockchain Nation”. Even if the current legal framework is generally well suited to dealing with new technologies, certain areas needed some amendments in order to create the best possible normative “regime” and to increase legal certainty by removing barriers for DLT-applications and reducing the risks of abuse. The new DLT-Law introduced new norms governing ledger-based securities and provides for rules allowing the surrender of cryptoassets and enabling the establishment of DLT-Trading Platforms.
