Resolving Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Dispute Issues

Although it is a relatively new technology, cryptocurrency has become a crucial component of many online systems, and it allows for transactions related to digital assets, video games, products, services, and more. The blockchain technology that powers cryptocurrency has also been used for numerous other purposes, including smart contracts and NFTs. While this technology has facilitated many transactions - providing benefits such as anonymity - disputes can sometimes arise between the parties involved. Determining how to resolve these disputes can sometimes be difficult, and mediation may provide a helpful solution.

We can help the parties involved work together to find innovative solutions that advance the interests of people or companies on both sides.

Issues That May Arise in Cryptocurrency Disputes

While cryptocurrency provides a decentralized method of conducting transactions, its anonymity can present issues for those who use these types of digital assets to make payments or investments. With so many different virtual currencies available, and with the value of cryptocurrencies fluctuating on a near-constant basis, the parties involved in a transaction may be unclear about the terms that will apply to them or the options available to them if they believe that they have been treated unfairly.

The failure of major cryptocurrency exchanges has brought these issues to the forefront. Many cryptocurrency investors have seen their investments lose value or disappear completely due to what they believe is illegal or fraudulent behavior. In other cases, people who purchase products or services using cryptocurrency may not receive what they paid for, and they may be unsure about their options for enforcing the terms of a sale. Mediation can be a helpful way to resolve these disputes, and a mediator can work with the parties as they seek to negotiate a meaningful agreement.

Other Types of Blockchain Disputes

Blockchain technology can be used for a variety of purposes other than cryptocurrency. For example, smart contracts function as self-executing programs on the blockchain that allow transactions to be carried out or provide for the execution of certain types of agreements. The transactions carried out through these agreements can be tracked, but they are usually irreversible. Because of this, disputes related to smart contracts may seem difficult to resolve. In many cases, the terms of the original contract or transaction will govern how these disputes will be handled.

Disputes related to non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, may also arise. These digital assets use the blockchain to attach unique identifiers to images, videos, or other forms of digital content. Buyers or sellers of NFTs may encounter disputes over whether ownership of assets was transferred correctly, whether payments were made as required, or the use of someone else's copyrighted material. A skilled mediator can help the parties as they seek resolutions to these kinds of disputes.
