    The digital and crypto asset market is said to have gone through all four seasons in a relatively short span of time. During the ebbs and flows, some jurisdictions have made new regulatory moves, many more national courts have had the opportunity to grapple with procedural and substantive issues concerning this asset class, and international organisations have also done significant work in this sphere. One example is the Digital Asset and Private Law project of the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT).


    This webinar, jointly organised by the Asian Business Law Institute and UNIDROIT, is expected to cover:


    • An overview of the UNIDROIT Principle on Digital Assets and Private Law, including key concepts such as proprietary rights and control;
    • Varying definitions of digital assets and concepts such as control and possession in different jurisdictions;
    • Property law treatment of digital assets in different jurisdictions, and the ensuing (proprietary) remedies available;
    • Creation of security interests over digital assets in different jurisdictions - for example, can security interests be created over such assets, and if so, how can those security interests be enforced?


    China and Singapore will be among the key jurisdictions featuring in the discussions, with general references to other common law and civil law jurisdictions. Where relevant, court judgments will be mentioned, such as ByBit Fintech Ltd v Ho Kai Xin & OrsCheong Jun Yoong. v. Three Arrows Capital Ltd, etc.


    When is this webinar scheduled?

    This webinar will take place from 4pm to 5:15pm (Singapore time) on Tuesday, 3 September 2024. Please be mindful of the time difference if you are joining from outside of Singapore.

    What if I am unable to attend this webinar after registration? Are the fees paid refundable?

    Unfortunately, the payments made are not refundable. If you are unable to attend the webinar, we request that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can let you transfer your slot to your colleague.


    I am interested in this webinar but unable to make it for the live session. If I register, will a recording be made available to me?

    Yes, a recording of the webinar can be made available upon request via a private link, though it is important to bear in mind that viewing the recording will not entitle you to any public CPD points in Singapore. In principle, we only provide recording upon request by a paid attendee.


    I am a practitioner qualified in a jurisdiction other than Singapore. Will attending this webinar entitle me to claim relevant CPD-equivalent points in my own jurisdiction?

    The answer to this question depends on the rules of the relevant governing body in your jurisdiction. In the past, we have issued letters of attendance accompanied by actual Zoom log-in records to assist non-Singapore-qualified attendees to claim their professional learning points. Therefore, if a letter of attendance and a Zoom record are all you need, we will be able to help. Likewise, we have issued the same set of documents to professionals other than lawyers who may also have such continuing education requirements.


    However, if the rules of your jurisdiction require an event to be accredited, we regret that this session will not entitle you to claim points outside of Singapore.


    Will the materials presented at the webinar be made available to attendees?

    The materials can be made available to attendees if the speakers so consent as they are the copyright owners of their presentation materials. Those who wish to receive such materials are advised to write to info@abli.asia after the webinar for more information.


    I want to sign up for the webinar but my organization requires registration to be done by other means, such as by sending an invoice to a dedicated portal. How do I register in this case?

    In principle, your registration for the webinar is only confirmed after payment is made online. However, if you need to pay against a manual invoice by bank transfer or other means, or if you are from a Singapore government agency that uses a central invoicing system, please write to info@abli.asia so that we can arrange an alternative way of registration for you, taking your needs into consideration.


    Who can I contact if I have more questions?

    Please write to info@abli.asia for any other query you may have about this webinar.
