The world continues to witness disruptive technological innovations that bring changes in our everyday lives.

Technology also powers the very underpinning of financial transactions as it continues to change how we manage and move money.

Start-ups are scaling up with tremendous innovative technological solutions in the areas of Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, FinTech among others.
Most jurisdictions across the world are grasping on how to deal with some of these technological innovations. In many cases, there are no easily recognizable regulations governing new technologies or innovative business models. The preliminary task therefore is to understand if there is legislation in place in chosen jurisdiction and, if so, how the legislation applies to a particular business model, what to expect and perhaps, if the current legislation favours some business models more than others.
