Blockchain Technology and the Law


Blockchain is gradually becoming a trending technology that captures enormous attention from organizations and businesses around the world. In Vietnam, blockchain is no longer an unfamiliar term as it has received widespread acceptance. The State is also promoting research and step-by-step promulgating blockchain-related legal framework, guidelines and policies.

On September 10, 2022, Mr. Dao Tien Phong – Managing Lawyer of Investpush Legal, Senior Advisor of FUNDGO Startup and Innovation Fund, held the workshop “Lawyers and Blockchain Technology” in Ho Chi Minh City. At the workshop, Mr. Phong pointed out the basic concepts of blockchain as well as the regulatory framework regarding this technology. 

Mr. Dao Tien Phong shares about blockchain technology in the workshop “Lawyers and Blockchain Technology”.

Mr. Phong showed that blockchain is a technology that structures all data into blocks and links them together, forming a chain of data. Once a new transaction occurs, old information will not disappear. Instead, new information is compiled into a newly formed block that will then also be added to the chain in chronological order. Any data that has been added to a block cannot be altered or deleted. Blockchain can be viewed as a ledger that records all transactions of a particular network. This technology is being applied in 65 fields including banking, securities and funds, insurance, state management, infrastructure, etc. With outstanding applications, blockchain is forecast to continue its thriving development in the future. Specifically, the blockchain market size including cryptocurrencies is expected to proliferate from $4.93 billion in 2021 to $227.99 billion in 2028 at an annual growth rate of 72.9%, showing the rapid development of this industry.

Blockchain technology is being applied in various fields.

At the workshop, Mr. Phong said that in Vietnam, the blockchain market needs timely advice and guidance as well as a clear legal framework to develop this technology. From 2017 to now, there have been more than 10 blockchain-related legal documents such as: Decision No. 942/QD-TTg dated June 15, 2021 of the Prime Minister approving the e-Government development strategy towards digital government in the period of 2021 - 2025, with orientation to 2030, which includes: Prioritizing researching, developing and mastering core technologies, and promoting the research movement of core technologies in which Vietnam has advantages and capacity of making strong breakthroughs such as QR code, AI, blockchain; research, build and pilot the use of cryptocurrency based on blockchain technology; Decision No. 664/QD-BTC dated April 24, 2020 of the Ministry of Finance deciding to establish a team to research digital assets and cryptocurrency; Decision No. 411/QD-TTg of the Prime Minister approving the national strategy to develop the digital economy and digital society by 2025, with a vision to 2030, including researching and proposing mechanisms and policies on cryptocurrency based on blockchain; Decision No. 343/QD-BNV dated April 27, 2022 of the Ministry of Home Affairs licensing the establishment of Vietnam Blockchain Association. The above policies show that the State has been interested in blockchain and the development potential of this technology in the future.
