New York, NY, September 28, 2019 --( Event Summary: Blockchains have been continuously penetrating an increasing number of functions and industries in recent years. Along with the imminent blockchain revolution is the growing prominence of smart contracts, which are computer protocols intended to facilitate contract processes while also improving security.

Recently, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) released a primer detailing smart contracts’ use cases, functionality, potential risks, and regulatory landscape. The primer emphasized the need for good governance frameworks and standards to manage the challenges, particularly cybersecurity risks, that are unique to smart contracts. Therefore, it becomes more imperative that companies have a keen understanding of its implications to avoid pitfalls.

Speakers will also present the best practices on how to maximize opportunities and overcome challenges.
