FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Carbon markets and crypto assets are rapidly evolving topics and the National Agricultural Law Center is hosting a free webinar Aug. 18 to provide clarity on how these technologies can be applied in the agriculture and environmental arenas.
The presenter for this webinar is Carol Goforth, the Clayton N. Little Professor of Law and University Professor at the University of Arkansas School of Law. She will provide an overview of the regulators actively working in this area, discuss current crypto projects within agriculture, and share how blockchain and cryptoassets can track and facilitate the effective use of carbon offsets.
“The webinar will provide a very general overview of blockchain technology and the new world of crypto assets,” Goforth, said. “There will be a particular focus on aspects that are likely to be of the greatest interest to agribusinesses.”
“The National Agricultural Law Center is the nation’s leading source of agricultural and food law research and information,” NALC Director Harrison Pittman said. “Professor Goforth’s webinar will allow the center to continue to provide needed clarity and insight on emerging issues such as how cryptoassets can impact agricultural and environmental issues like carbon markets.”
