General Session Highlights:
Surfing the Cryptocurrency & Block Chain Wave - Tribal Currency and Tribal Systems
Headlines are filled with Bitcoin and cryptocurrency trading and markets. Cryptocurrency is becoming more accepted by retailers and institutions with some asserting that it is the international currency of the future. Is there a place for the new currency in tribal governments? More important for tribal governments is the underlying system of recording transactions. This may hold the promise of creating trustworthy systems that record and value transactions. The general session discussion will offer a primer on the new currency and transaction system followed by a breakout session that will explore the opportunities.
Sovereignty, Economic Development, and the Courts
A number of court decisions have changed the way tribes conduct business and make agreements. The current decisions have added risk and uncertainty for tribes pursuing development. This has translated into higher legal financing costs. Our expert panelists will discuss the current and pending cases impacting development and review the practical ways tribes can structure agreements to manage risks better and navigate legal minefields.
Join NAFOA in New Orleans to discuss these and many other compelling topics that impact economic growth in Indian Country.
