The Webinar: Its Background
The pandemic has drastically and surprisingly altered the mode of payment. In just the last few months, we have seen a budding growth of the e-payment companies, and tech giants like WhatsApp entering this market. This trend is also supported by cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, the prices of which are reaching an all-time high. These unparalleled circumstances have created new legal challenges.
To discuss some of these pressing issues, the Law and Technology Society, NLSIU is hosting a webinar on ‘Digital Payments and Legal Challenges’. This webinar is a part of an integrated series that the society plans to conduct in due course of time.
