Tech Intersect #34: Brian Avello-The Future of Law, DAOs and DeFi
Sep 15, 2020 Episode 34
Tonya M. Evans

In this episode, MakerDAO general counsel Brian Avello and I explore the secrets to success for future lawyers and current lawyers interested in pivoting to represent clients involved in blockchain, cryptocurrencies and decentralized finance (or “defi”). This is also an important episode for anyone who wants to better understand the legal landscape in the crypto space. 

Brian explains what decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) and smart contracts are and addresses the cefi vs. defi distinction. And he also shares his take on some of the most pressing legal issues in defi and crypto today and in the future, including regulation by a number of regulatory bodies like the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Commodity Futures Trade Commission (CFTC), Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) and the Treasury Department, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
