Interest and investment in blockchain technology, the recordkeeping infrastructure upon which Bitcoin is based, is widespread and growing. With startups seeking capital and investors clamoring to get in on the ground floor, legal practitioners find themselves interfacing with multiple regulators, including the SEC, the CFTC, federal banking regulators, and state regulators, all of which have asserted authority over virtual currency activities to various degrees.
