In this episode of “Understanding Blockchain,” Morrison & Foerster’s Susan Gault-Brown and Dario de Martino discuss cryptocurrencies, if they are commodities, and if it is possible they’re also securities.

This ongoing series is dedicated to providing an overall understanding of blockchain technology and how companies can use it to share, store, and record valuable data through a secure, immutable network. #UnderstandingBlockchain
