Does Blockchain Need Regulation and Standards?
BC-07

With countless regulations and standards with which to comply, blockchain is going to be a slippery slope for many, which is why the technology is winning attention from regulatory bodies. Are regulatory agencies prepared to create rules around blockchain? Is blockchain mature enough to require regulatory oversight? What impact will regulation have? Will it accelerate blockchain use? What would happen if blockchain is left unregulated?
