Digital Assets: The Intangible of a New Era
Updated: Aug 7
The genesis of my blog relates back to the publication of my book “Secured Lending in Intellectual Property”. Five years later… the spectrum of intangible property keeps on growing. The crypto and digital assets are rapidly evolving in today’s economy. Investment opportunities are rising and regulators are turning their attention to these assets.
Why so much hype around crypto and digital assets? What is a digital asset, a nonfungible token (NFT), a cryptocurrency, a stablecoin? Is there a crypto lending market in Canada and who are the current players? What is the legal regime for lending and taking security in digital assets? How does the newly approved article 12 of the American Uniform Commercial Code address secured lending concerns relating to digital assets (ex.: blockchain, virtual currencies, NFTs)?
Xavier Foccroulle Ménard's of Norton Rose Fullbright article definitely answered some of the questions. But I did not stop there… I had the privilege of getting direct responses to my questions above through a chat with Xavier. For the full Q&A, click below.
