The editors of the 2018-2019 Edition of the St. Thomas Law Journal of Complex Litigation have selected third-year law student Saul Canelo’s article for publication.
His article, Now Accepting Virtual Currencies:Bitcoins and United States Regulation, focuses on the new digital currency and how the US government can provide a uniform definition to Bitcoin, categorizing it either as a currency or a “unit of account.” He concludes by proposing that achieving a uniform Bitcoin legislation provides a framework for the world that Bitcoin can be regulated and his belief that it could have the potential to become a new form of universally accepted currency once universally regulated.
The St. Thomas Journal of Complex Litigation focuses exclusively on topics of complex litigation. Its mission is to publish relevant and thought-provoking scholarship and serve as a leading resource for students, academics and legal professionals in the area of complex litigation.
