The application of the General Data Protection Regulation to blockchain technology by Michèle Finck27 Feb4 Rue Alphonse Weicker, 2721 Luxembourg
AbstractThis seminar looks at the application of the General Data Protection Regulation to blockchain technology. Over the past year, there has been much discussion regarding the compatibility of blockchains with European data protection law. The seminar will highlight the most important points of tension and suggest potential solutions. More broadly, it will be seen that the mapping of the Regulation to blockchains unveils many current uncertainties and inconsistencies in the GDPR and its interpretation.
