During Bitcoin Wednesday on 7 March 2018, Julian Zegelman, managing partner at corporate and securities law firm Velton Zegelman PC gave a presentation on the changes we can expect to see in international securities laws in 2018.
As background, Julian explained:
The actual use cases for blockchain technologies, where it actually makes revenue, is in B2B applications, mostly in sectors like insurance, money transfer, banking, data storage, etc. The total size of [that market] was only $2.5 billion in 2017, which was actually dwarfed by the [cryptocurrency] market [cap which was] closer to $70 billion. But surprisingly, only $5 billion of that came from token sales and the rest from the massive cryptocurrency forks that happened.
