Tech Intersect #15: Drew Hinkes: Cryptocurrency Lawyers Talk Regulation and Innovation

Andrew Hinkes

In this episode, I welcome Andrew Hinkes, an attorney with Miami-based law firm Carlton Fields working in the firm’s National Blockchain and Digital Currency practice. He is also a co-founder and the General Counsel of Athena Blockchain, a professional services firm focused on tokenized investments.

We discuss what Bitcoin and blockchain are, about other cryptocurrencies including stablecoins and government issued digital fiat, and regulations and regulators in the United States and around the world, given that public, permissionless blockchains–the rails that support the issuance of many cryptographically-secured tokens of value–are borderless. We also talk about what a “crypto lawyer” is and does.

Previously nominated as one of Coindesk’s Most Influential People in Blockchain in 2017, Drew is frequently quoted and cited in articles related digital assets and blockchain technology, and regularly speaks at legal, industry, and academic conferences. Drew’s areas of expertise focus on legal and business issues related to public network cryptocurrency systems, decentralized system governance, and legal and ethical issues related to cryptocurrency systems.
