Marcus Bagnall, Nicholas Crossland and Ben Towell have contributed a chapter on “Blockchain-driven decentralisation, disaggregation and distribution – industry perspectives” for Global Legal Insights as part of its Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Laws and Regulations 2023 Edition.

The chapter discusses how distributed ledger technology is being used to create disruptive digital platforms, assets and services across a number of sectors including ride sharing, content creation and digital infrastructure. These use cases raise novel regulatory challenges as existing rules developed for centralised systems must adapt to ensure functionally equivalent outcomes in a non-centralised world.
