El Salvador recently became the first country to use Bitcoin as legal tender. Lawmakers in several Latin American countries have proposed legislation to do the same in their jurisdictions. The regulatory landscape governing Blockchain-Crypto-Digital Assets in Latin America is evolving almost as rapidly as the United States.  The panel will also discuss developments in the regulatory and enforcement frameworks in the United States and how they bear on Latin America.  Finally, the panel will address recent U.S. civil litigations around crypto assets and what this might mean for cross-border arbitrations and litigations involving Bitcoin.

For the health and safety of our community and as part of New York City’s Key to NYC program, as of September 7, 2021 all visitors to the New York City Bar are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. At the time of your visit, in order to enter the City Bar, you will be required to show proof that you are at least 14 days past your final dose of a vaccine approved by the Food and Drug Administration or the World Health Organization, in combination with a matching photo ID. Proof of vaccination may include a valid paper vaccination record, a photo of a valid vaccination record, the NYC COVID Safe App, or the New York State Excelsior Pass.  Effective December 14, visitors between 5 and 11 years old must show proof of having received one dose. Visitors who are under 5 years old and therefore not yet eligible for vaccination are exempt from the requirement, but must wear a mask and be accompanied by a vaccinated adult. Please visit our website for more information.
