Noted Bitcoin and blockchain expert Jimmy Nguyen, Founding President of the Bitcoin Association, a business organization that seeks to return the Bitcoin and blockchain field to its roots in the Satoshi Vision of the original Bitcoin via Bitcoin SV (BSV), will speak at the International Association of Defense Counsel’s International Corporate Counsel College, an event near Zurich, a global center for banking, finance and cryptocurrency, that brings together in-house counsel and their law firm counterparts for two days of education and discussion on the latest legal issues affecting global companies.

Nguyen will give the event’s keynote speech on the evening of October 24. In addition, on October 25, he will be part of the “Smart Contracts: Everything You Wanted to Know, but Never Dared to Ask” panel that will explore various applications of blockchain and will explain how it is relevant for corporations and their legal counsel. Other panellists include moderator: Ianika Tzankova, of Tzankova Legal Consulting and Tilburg University, in Tilburg, Netherlands; and presenters: Falco Kreis, CMS Hasche Sigle, in Munich, Germany; and Gabriela Lippe-Holst, Co-Founder and Director, Acqupart Holding AG, in Zug, Switzerland:

Nguyen notes that

„Blockchain and smart contracts are game-changing for the legal profession, as well as businesses in all industries. I’m excited to bring what I’ve learned in my two decades of legal experience as a partner at major U.S. law firms, along with my current work in blockchain and cryptocurrency, to this gathering of top corporate lawyers in Europe. This event also gives me the opportunity to further explain how BSV is creating a regulation-friendly ecosystem, unlike so many other cryptocurrency camps, a message which will be supported by major enterprises and their corporate lawyers.“
