Société Générale’s Legal Director: Bitcoin Regulation is a Must
Société Générale’s group legal director has called out for the establishment of an international bitcoin regulatory framework.
In an article co-written by Dominique Bourrinet, group legal director of the French multinational bank; and his colleague Etienne Mauret, the consequences of bitcoin’s undetermined legal status are discussed.
Bourrinet and Mauret go on to warn against the associated risks of using cryptocurrency in the absence of regulation.
In July this year, Société Générale posted a job advertisement for a bitcoin-focused developer.
