The CryptoLaw Podcast: Episode 7

This week’s episode features our resident registered patent attorney Zach Smolinski educating your hosts Ramy and Grant, and regular guests Wes Williams and Benny Rozin, about patents, followed by the news.

Main Topic: Patents and Blockchain

Our resident registered patent attorney Zach Smolinski provides one of the best overviews of patent law that we’ve ever heard along with helpful guidance that blockchain (or really any startup) founders can use to help them better understand how patents work as well as if they are needed.

News Topics

Thankfully, the main topic for this episode justifies the download by itself, because the news topics are rather depressing, especially considering the fact that both topics probably had a role to play in one of the reddest markets we’ve seen in a very long time (ugh). ?

SEC Shuts Down EtherDelta

The SEC issued an order in the case of the (somewhat) decentralized EtherDelta Exchange. We talk about what happened and what it means for crypto exchanges, and crypto in general, moving forward.

The Latest Bitcoin Cash Fork

Remember the first time you heard about Bitcoin Cash and the fork which created it? When it finally went down last year, some of us considered the ensuing debate and posturing rather ridiculous. In hindsight, it was calm and uneventful compared to the temper tantrums happening this go round. Can crypto survive? Yes, but lets try not to do this again, shall we?
