Dr. Thibault Schrepel on blockchain and competition law

Dr. Thibault Schrepel, Assistant Professor in European Economic Law at Utrecht University School of Law, visited IE and spoke about competition law, blockchain and the legal implications behind this technology.

Many bets that all citizens will use blockchain in a near future, whether it is to vote, to buy food or to implement any kind of transactions.  All relationships between companies will also change, including prohibited ones. Although blockchain applications are still in their infancy, the potential legal issues that will result from them must be addressed without further ado. This is particularly true with regard to competition law which is often used to shape the market power that flows from technologies, but in fact, blockchain creates similar legal issues for all of the fields of private law.

During the seminar hosted by IE´s Research CenterDr. Thibault Schrepel explored how Blockchain may transform transactions the same way Internet altered the dissemination and nature of information. He also described the challenges that blockchain presents for analyses of unilateral anticompetitive practices and proposes some changes to antitrust law and regulations that address those challenges.
