An International Group of Lawyers & Academics Publishes Book on Bitcoin Law

A group of 10 lawyers and academics from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Germany has published a book on Bitcoin and cryptocurrency law in all four of these jurisdictions. Titled “The Law of Bitcoin,” the book aims to be the definitive guide to navigating international Bitcoin-related law.

The book is edited by Stuart Hoegner, a lawyer and accountant in the cryptocurrency and internet gaming spaces, and member of the Bitcoin Alliance of Canada. Hoegner – who coauthored the Canadian chapter of the book – hopes to get well-researched information into the hands of policy makers, practitioners and entrepreneurs. Speaking to CoinTelegraph, Hoegner said:

“The book is intended for two broad groups of people: those with little understanding of the law of cryptocurrencies who want to learn more, and those who want in-depth information about more advanced or nuanced concepts in the field. We hope that the content is appropriate for beginners and experts in the sector.”
