    “For your regulation to change, you need your regulators and policy makers to know that it needs to change.”

    Nicole Sandler (Innovation Policy Global Lead at Barclays) and Anthony Macey (Director of Emerging Technology at Barclays) talk through some tangible use cases for blockchain (and why, as a lawyer, you can’t ignore it), and some of the tricky legal issues posed by new technologies.

    The duo pause to reflect on the tension between data protection regulation and blockchain technology and why it’s crucial for leading companies that are driving technology to engage with regulators and try to shape the future.
