Providing Legal Advocacy For Modern Finance Vehicles in New York, Illinois, and Chicago
Blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies comprise a marketplace that cannot be accessed without a thorough understanding of how it works. This complexity also affects the laws associated with these investments, making it especially difficult to find an attorney who understands your needs and can cater to them. At the Law Offices of R. Tamara de Silva, our cryptocurrency lawyer in Chicago is unique in the legal world as we are able to offer expertise in this narrow field to help clients obtain clear, helpful legal counsel and seek favorable outcomes for their situations.
Connecting People in New Ways
As digital assets become a more and more regular part of the financial marketplace, the variety of assets that can be included in Blockchain has grown. Remote parts of the world can now participate in transactions hitherto prohibited by their location, enfranchising more of the world.

What Is Blockchain Law?
At its core, a blockchain is a digital ledger of transactions or other data. It functions as a database, steadily expanding organized records named “blocks”. These blocks are connected through cryptography, a form of protecting data through codes, embedding a cryptographic hash from the prior block, along with timestamps and transaction data.
Transactions or data in a blockchain may be:
- Decentralized - As a decentralized, public digital ledger, a blockchain records transactions across multiple computers. This design ensures that any retroactive changes demand the alteration of all subsequent blocks and the consensus of the entire network -- copies of the ledger may be kept and worked on by multipl people. There is no master lead copy.
- Distributed - Blockchains are distributed publicly or privately
- Immutable - When the transaction data is recorded within the blockchain, it cannot be changed or deleted.
- Self-proving - Because blockchains utilize cryptography, they may verify transactions or other data. A user can tell if data is incorrect or if it has been manipulated.
