Weaver On Chain: The Current Regulatory and Tax Challenges of Decentralization

David Kerr, Principal at Cowrie, has ten years of experience in tax strategy, financial accounting, anti-money laundering, international tax compliance, and risk consulting across the gaming, telecommunications, technology, and digital asset industries.

Will decentralized entities be around in the future, and if so, how will they impact the world of business and finance at larger scale?
