Ether Review Legal #4 – MME, the Beating Heart of Crypto Valley

Luka M?ƒller and Dianne Schepers of MME?’?Š?'”?’?Šthe Swiss law firm famous for running the Ethereum crowdsale?’?Š?'”?’?Šdiscuss jurisdictional constraints, Crypto Valley, novel crypto-asset classes and the ?’?œsecond wave?’ of tokenization.

With 25 previous ?’?œtoken generating events?’ and 60 pending projects, MME is a clear leader in the crypto law realm. The firm is now welcoming a ?’?œsecond wave?’ of clients; companies from the legacy economy which are seeking ways to enter the blockchain world through tokenizing their pre-existing equity.

In this discussion Luka outlines some of the major distinctions between US and Swiss law in relation to token issuance, looking at securities law, donations, and the commonly used foundation model. These and other regulatory differences, compounded by the stable and already-decentralized nature of Swiss government, make Switzerland the ideal jurisdiction for Crypto Valley, the rapidly growing successor to Silicon Valley based in Zug, a financial center.Alongside its long list of clients, MME is now focussed on creating Blockchain Crypto Property (BCP) standards. The final BCP paper, to be published in August, will classify tokens under a range of asset classes and outline a quality checklist for various token models. These standards will simplify risk assessment and ensure that tokens issued in Switzerland will be globally listable and tradeable.

#194 Eyal Hertzog: Bancor and the Rise of User-Generated Currencies

Bancor is a simple, but hard-to-understand protocol that enables price discovery and liquidity even for assets that aren’t actively traded. Co-Founder Eyal Hertzog joined us to explain how the Bancor protocol works and why they think it will play a key role in enabling a massive wave of small, but interconnected user-generated currencies. We dissected the workings of the protocol, its radical implications as well as the takeaways from their record-shattering, but controversial crowdsale.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Eyal’s background in early internet startups
  • The origin story of Bancor
  • Why asset markets suffer from the double coincidence of wants problem
  • The benefits of Bancor-based Smart Tokens
  • How Bancor and BNT can create a liquidity network
  • Why BNT benefits from network effects
  • What went well and what didn’t go well about the Bancor Crowdsale
  • Why Eyal thinks the price floor was a good idea

The Crypto Show: Jonathan Mohan & Jeff Berwick Talk Bitcoin Cash

On tonight’s episode of “The Crypto Show,” Jonathan Mohan and The Dollar Vigilante’s Jeff Berwick join us to discuss the recent Bitcoin Cash hard fork and its ramifications. We discuss the moral validity of the decision by some of the exchanges NOT to disburse Bitcoin Cash to their customers; Jonathan explores the possiblity of Bitcoin “endlessly” forking through every contentious soft fork becoming a hard fork; Jeff expresses his concerns about Segwit2x but also his admiration for the free market and how it has made current circumstances probably better than could have been expected; we compare the Ethereum fork to this recent fork; and we also speculate on the long-term outcome for Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and the the other cryptos. We get Jeff to give us a quick update on the upcoming Anarchapulco conference, and Danny gives us a brief update on the Texas Bitcoin Conference in October. Both Jonathan and Jeff, as to be expected, give some very cogent answers to some difficult questions and also offer some brilliant and profound insights into the crypto space above and beyond.

The Bitcoin Game #47: Scaling Bitcoin with Paul Puey, Tone Vays, Ryan X. Charles, and Eric Lombrozo

Hello, welcome to episode 47 of The Bitcoin Game, I’m Rob Mitchell. We recently had the State Of Digital Money, the first big Bitcoin conference in Los Angeles since 2015. Actually, I’m unsure if I should call it a Bitcoin conference, since the majority of the presentations were not directly related to Bitcoin. Luckily for me, I got to moderate a panel on scaling Bitcoin with notable Bitcoiners: Core developer Eric Lombrozo, longtime Bitcoin developer Ryan X. Charles, vocal trader and personality Tone Vays, and Airbitz Wallet?’?s Paul Puey. You’ll hear the discussion in its entirety on this episode.

While much of a Bitcoiner’s time is spent in the world of digital assets, sometimes it’s nice to own a physical representation of the virtual things you care about. For just the price of a cup of coffee or two (at Starbucks), you can own your own Bitcoin Keychain or the newer Bitcoin Fork Pen.

The Crypto Show: Trace Mayer & Eijah Of DemonSaw 4 Live From DefCon 25

On tonight’s episode of “The Crypto Show,” we talk with Eric J. Anderson, a.k.a., “Eijah,” about his ongoing “Demonsaw” project that he has made open-source and is retiring. We talk about his latest project Titan, and the launch party he is cohosting during Defcon on July 27th. (Additional Eijah audio from that launch party will be attached to the show, so listen all the way to the end.) We also talk about his desire to take on encrypted-messaging app “Signal”, which he says isn’t nearly as secure or private as it should or could be, and he wants to create a truly secure alternative.

Trace Mayer joins the discussion as we talk about ICO’s (Initial Coin Offerings) and the Ethereum hack, and Trace makes some very insightful points about the events surrounding that hack and whether certain facts indicate incompetence or malfeasance on the part of those behind the Pulse wallets that got compromised. We also briefly discuss the implementation of BIP91 and Segwit2X, and whether a Bitcoin hard or soft work is still a possibility. Danny, Eijah, and Trace are all in Las Vegas getting ready for DefCon.
