  • Blockchain and Virtual Currencies

    The blockchain technology has a potential that can be crucial for a number of significant industries.

    Blockchain and virtual currencies (cryptocurrencies) such as bitcoin and ether, which are based on blockchain as underlying technology, have the potential to “disrupt” already existing systems.

    There are many possibilities for incorporating blockchain into its business process. But in order to develop, commercialize and capitalize on the blockchain, there are a number of legal points to be aware of. Therefore, it is important that you have an attorney by your side who has in-depth legal and commercial knowledge and an industry knowledge of blockchain and virtual currencies.

    Venture Capital

    Venture and seed investments are investments in companies that are either startup or early stage companies. Common to these investments are that they are typically associated with a high risk with similar growth potential.

    The investments are typically made because of the company’s need of capital to grow and expand its business. Therefore, venture and seed investments are typically made on special terms, which are often very specific tailored to the specific investment. For example, the investment may be conditioned on the company having to use the capital for certain specific purposes or the investment being paid out as specific milestones are achieved. It may also be that the investor depends on being allocated shares in the company, which are granted some special preferences (preference shares).
