The rise in cryptocurrencies, particularly extremely energy-intensive ones like bitcoin, is creating pressing new challenges for staving off the worst impacts of climate change. What can policymakers do to help regulate cryptocurrencies? 

Join us for a discussion on cryptocurrencies and their far-reaching environmental impacts with Lawrence Baxter, David T. Zhang Professor of the Practice of Law, Duke Law; Faculty Director, Global Financial Markets Center. This discussion will be moderated by Cary Coglianese, Edward B. Shils Professor of Law and Professor of Political Science, Penn Law; Director, Penn Program on Regulation. 

This event is hosted by the Wharton Risk Center and the Penn Program on Regulation as part of Energy Week at Penn.
