When one says “digital assets,” people immediately think of cryptocurrency, but the concept is much broader. It includes not only the currently popular NFTs, but also more mundane matters, such as smart contracts, electronic money, electronic “promissory notes,” electronic chattel paper, electronic documents of title, and electronic receivables. This list goes on. Digital assets and electronic commerce are now ubiquitous. The purpose of this presentation is to broadly discuss the legal framework for transactions in digital assets, including sales and secured transactions. We will explore the current legal framework for such transactions as well as some upcoming changes to the Uniform Commercial Code dealing with transactions in such assets, as well as an examination of the marketplace for digital assets, including the current marketplace and some insights into the future marketplace.
