Practice Area Insights — Digital Assets: A Brave New World

Robert Marshall Grodner, Juliet Marie Moringiello, and Christopher Keith Odinet

A draft of amendments to the Uniform Commercial Code to address emerging technologies is nearing completion. In this conversation, vice chair of the drafting committee Juliet Moringiello, R. Marshall Grodner, and Christopher Odinet discuss the amendments’ effort to provide a broad framework for transacting with digital assets, from cryptocurrency to non-fungible tokens and “just about any other digital thing that we may not think of right now.” Delving into consumer concerns related to NFTs, the challenges of enacting UCC amendments in the states, and more, these experts provide a perceptive look at the nuts and bolts behind digital assets’ hype.
