Each chapter of this guide provides information about the current issues affecting blockchain in a particular country and addresses topics such as cryptocurrency, virtual assets including crypto-securities, smart contracts, and enforcement and judicial considerations.

The Q&A template for each chapter has been provided by Ben Kingsley and Duncan Blaikie of Slaughter & May.
