Legal challenges arising from blockchain technology & Web3
In the last decade, blockchain and Web3 have exponentially grown and gained mainstream attention globally since its inception in 2008. As of July 2022, it was roughly estimated that there are 83 million bitcoin explorer wallet users. In 2021, the Bank of England was considering developing its own crypto asset as a consequence of blockchains' emerging market.
However, despite its sizeable growth, blockchain is fraught with legal issues and still remains a highly volatile and speculative market. Regulation is also a problem within blockchain, which subsequently poses further risks for investors.
That is why we are providing blockchain and Web3 solicitor services to individuals and commercial entities which are seeking legal advice within the blockchain industry. Our lawyers can help with:
- Creating and managing smart contracts, so that they are legally binding.
- Providing advice on regulatory compliance so that companies are operating in line with current regulations.
- Protecting a companys' intellectual property to prevent unauthorised use of its branding and technology.
- Handling legal disputes.
- Negotiating and drafting contracts with stakeholders.

What is the difference between blockchain and Web3?
The main difference between blockchain and Web3 is that blockchain is a specific technology, while Web3 is a broader concept and vision for the future direction of the web.
Blockchain is a specific technology that is used to create decentralised, distributed ledgers for recording and verifying transactions. Web3 is a broader concept and vision for the future of the web, which is based on the idea of greater decentralisation and user control.
What is blockchain?
Blockchain is a decentralised, distributed ledger that is used to record transactions across a network of computers. However, most people associate blockchain as a form of cryptocurrency, thanks to high-profile currencies such as Ethereum. Blockchain can also be used to develop NFTs and smart contracts.
