Cryptocurrency in the conflict of laws: a reconnaissance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

This article comprises of a reconnaissance of the conflict of laws aspects associated with cryptocurrencies under the Dutch conflict of laws. Cryptocurrencies are founded on new technologies that are unencumbered by borders or central authority, which makes them resistant to traditional rules of private international law that require a connection to a geographic location. A potential major problem may therefore lie in integrating cryptocurrencies into the existing conflict of laws system. This article provides an overview of how cryptocurrencies fit into the existing Dutch conflict of laws system and discusses existing problem areas.
