Dave Sorin has been appointed by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy to the New Jersey Blockchain Initiative Task Force. As noted in a press release on the state of New Jersey’s official website titled “Governor Murphy Signs Legislation Strengthening New Jersey’s Innovation Economy,” the task force will study:
- Opportunities and risks associated with using blockchain and distributed ledger technology;
- Types of blockchains, both public and private, as well as consensus algorithms;
- Projects and use cases currently under development in other states and nations, and how those cases could be applied in New Jersey; and
- How the Legislature can modify current State laws to support secure, paperless recordkeeping.
Dave leads McCarter’s Blockchain, Smart Contracts & Digital Currencies practice and is a key figure in the space, speaking frequently on related topics and advising clients who are creating, integrating, implementing, investing in, and leveraging blockchain technologies.
