Description:

The use of blockchain technologies is extremely diverse. From cryptocurrencies to the exchange of encrypted information with no way to trace senders or senders, the development of this form of data passing has left behind all the corresponding regulations and poses a dilemma for the work of the Organization as soon as this method can be used for piracy, violation of copyright among others. Likewise, it is of particular interest to WIPO the use that is given to this technology and how to reorient its use to improve the situation of developing countries. It is clear to say that networks and the web advance faster than arguments are advanced in the forums and, therefore, addressing this problem immediately is extremely necessary to avoid problems in the future and to curb the problems of the present.
