OlivierA Posted July 11, 2017 Share Posted July 11, 2017 (edited) Very interesting article from a big law firm in Canada. French version will be posted in the French section. Quote It has been suggested that the Government of Canada is likely to issue a Canadian Dollar digital currency in the future. The Royal Canadian Mint has already issued a version of this known as MintChip. The Bank of Canada announced, in a closed media session at the 2016 Payments Panorama conference, that they had been experimenting with “The Jasper Distributed Ledger Settlement Platform.” This project introduced the concept of a possible “CAD-COIN.” This has placed Canada in a unique position in comparison to other jurisdictions, as the government is actively exploring the applications of this technology. Quote Overall, this technology has the potential to impact a multitude of legislative regimes which may need to change to cope with the new technology. At the forefront of this will be anti-money laundering, securities and tax legislation. However, as the area becomes more robust, it is likely to impact other general areas of law such as consumer protection and even basic principles of contract law. http://www.fasken.com/en/publications/Detail.aspx?publication=5c6ed86c-64b4-43c6-919f-141a3b45fe75 Edited July 11, 2017 by OlivierA Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
