In recent years we have seen rapid growth in the area of digital currency. However, the first few years of this new financial technology have been unsettled, resulting in a number of disputes and litigation. Disputes involving digital currency can occur in a number of situations. These include:

  • where there is breach of contract;

  • where a claimant is trying to recover Bitcoins or access to a private key;

  • where a criminal matter has occurred, such as fraud or money laundering;

  • where a party is allegedly using digital currency to hide assets;

  • where a party is allegedly concealing assets in the course of commercial litigation;

  • where there is an issue of company or commercial law; and

  • where there are intellectual property issues, such as patents.
