From crypto to IP, get on the fast track to learn and earn™


Future of Entrepreneurship

While others are leaving their valuable intellectual property exposed to infringement and valuable loss of revenue, you can learn the key strategies to help you identify, develop and leverage your key business assets: data and intellectual property. And you can even learn the step-by-step process of registering your copyrights and trademarks (and the difference!)

Future of Investing

And while everyone else is sitting on the sidelines believing cryptocurrency is just for drug dealers and money launderers (spoiler alert … it’s not), Bitcoin, first created in 2009 and trading in 2013 at only around $13.50 USD/coin, is now valued in the thousands. Find out why and learn the difference between a blockchain and Bitcoin. Learn how to safely and legally buy, hold, invest and trade cryptocurrency. And buy your first Bitcoin!

Future of Work

You don’t have time to waste in this fast-paced digital economy. And guess what? Employers don’t have the time to wait for you either. Companies like IBM, Google, Bank of America and EY now consider degrees “optional”. These business, finance and tech powerhouses are focused on your skill sets and demonstrated knowledge in specific areas. So is Advantage Evans™ Academy.

Will legal ed and the practice of law pivot to meet the #neweconomy & #futureofwork?

“Lawyers aren’t going away. But the way we work is changing.”

Today’s client and, more importantly tomorrow’s client, demands that lawyers keep pace with the #futureofwork in the #neweconomy. Here’s where I think we are and where we HAVE to go.

How do you foresee this directly impacting the legal industry?

Asked by interviewer Adam Keirstead

Dean Evans

Well, there’s a really interesting move in the legal industry to prepare lawyers to have conversations with technologists in the IT department and those who are coding to leverage the existing master contracts that we have in order to figure out ways that we can automate certain functions.

Essentially, there are master agreements underneath that lawyers do, and there’s coding the coders and IT specialists do. They need to be able to talk to each other. This is an area that’s ripe for innovation on the law side.

Lawyers won’t go away, but the way that lawyers are interacting with business people, and in terms of our advice and how we work with them is going to certainly change!

Tech Intersect #86: Steve Krause-NFTs & Digital Ownership from Cryptokitties to NBA Top Shot and Beyond Tech Intersect™ with Tonya M. Evans

I welcome Steve Krause to the show. He is the VP, Head of Commercial Legal for Dapper Labs – the creators of NBA Top Shot, CryptoKitties, and the Flow Blockchain. Steve’s groundbreaking work on IP licensing issues related to Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) has made him one of the foremost experts in the field. His 25 years of negotiating experience – including representing Dapper Labs in complex license agreements with major IP holders – enables Steve to speak authoritatively to both the practical and theoretical aspects of this exciting new technology.***How secure is your crypto?***If it's sitting on an exchange like Coinbase or CashApp instead of in your own wallet, not very safe at all. @BitcoinZay says "not your keys, not your cheese." Truer words were never spoken. Change that today with a self-custody "cold storage" wallet from Ledger.   ***If you're ready to grow, Let's GO!***I am so excited to help POC, women and other historically marginalized people who are serious about financial freedom and generational wealth to onboard quickly and, most importantly, safely, legally and confidently, into the future of wealth!  Here's a snapshot of the curated content, as well as the topics. I work with each person through the modules to set up "warm" and "cold" storage wallets, an exchange account, an asset tracking account for taxes and to explore best practices for estate planning considerations. I've recently updated this material to include "decentralized finance" fundamentals, also a very hot and important topic.  Individualized and group coaching available.

CompetitiveStable

I am excited to return to the second annual Voice of Blockchain Conference, touted as the only blockchain conference to bring a no-pitch event connecting the blockchain ecosystem VoB consists of three tracks of content: Corporate and Enterprise, Digital Assets and Markets, and Impact and Innovation.

Monday, September 30th at 10:55 AM (Main Stage)

Stablecoins

Competitive Analysis of Stablecoins, with my co-panelist Nik Tchouparaov (CEO, Moneyfold Ltd), is moderated by the dynamic Alexandra Pordromos (Chicago Blockchain Center). We will explore what stablecoins are and how the definition has changed over time, as the space has matured. We will share our thoughts about some of the most exciting use cases for stablecoins and critique the impact and future of “corporate coins” like Libra, Walmart, for example, and fiat-alternative stablecoins like JP Morgan’s JPMCoin, Wells Fargo’s new dollar-pegged coin pilot for ‘better, faster, cheaper’ cross-border settlement within its system.

[CB Insights Report on Stablecoins]

Of course, we cannot help but discuss whether the Libra hearings had a positive or negative effect on the crypto ecosystem and some hurdles to mainstream adoption and proliferation of stablecoins.

The Future of Innovation

In my second panel, Preparing for the Next Wave of Innovation we will discuss whether the future of blockchain is the future of all technology. This discussion will examine the changes in funding structures, innovation, and the evolution of how society organizes itself. From enterprise to decentralized ecosystems, we will discuss how blockchain is likely to evolve to become a part our everyday life and what is needed to get there. I will focus on the impact of blockchain and crypto on education, especially higher ed, and the impact of education on blockchain and crypto.
