On the Hook: Regulating Web3

Emerging technologies have the potential to revolutionize the world as we know it. Given the exciting business opportunities, DLT, blockchain and Web3 are becoming increasingly appealing to entrepreneurs. However, due to its novelty, the industry’s liabilities for its participants are not yet settled comprehensively.

While some regulators across the globe have established the responsibilities of crypto asset issuers and service providers (with the EU’s MiCA regulation at the forefront), the extent of liability for other participants – developers, DAO members and their delegators, proxy advisors, miners and validators in particular – remains somewhat unclear.

This “On the Hook: Regulating Web3” event aims to bring together diverse experts to discuss present risks, regulatory tendencies and industry trends through the lens of financial regulation, corporate governance and tort law, associated with various actors in the Web3 space. The discussion will attempt to identify possible regulatory hooks to address these risks and debate on other potential regulatory approaches.

This event is co-organised with the Cambridge European Society and Cambridge Blockchain Society.
