Gary DeWaal, special counsel in the Financial Services group, was a featured presenter on cryptocurrency at MarketsWiki Education's World of Opportunity Series, presented by John Lothian News. Gary explains how cryptocurrency and distributed ledgers work, drawing comparison to everyday technology. He stated, "The most common mistake people make is not realizing that blockchain technology . . . is another app. It's another way of doing something—it's another way of communicating information, conducting transactions." He added, "We're going through an exciting time. My guess is in 28 years, we're going to look back now and question why there was confusion, why there was concern, and what are people talking about when they say there was uncertainty."
