The Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce’s monthly luncheon on Sept. 22 will feature a “Cryptocurrency 101” discussion that explores the ins and outs of cryptocurrency, what’s behind it and where it’s going.
Guests will hear from Mark Nieds, chair of the Intellectual Property Department at Henderson, Franklin, Starnes & Holt, P.A., who will discuss the history of cryptocurrency, investing and practical implications. He also will offer an overview of Blockchain, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and the future of digital currencies.
Nieds draws on two decades of experience representing clients in the acquisition and protection of copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets. He also advises clients in franchising, as well as privacy and data security, providing strategies to manage risk and ensure legal compliance with the gathering and use of personal information. Nieds earned bachelor’s degrees from Miami University and the Illinois Institute of Technology, and his Juris Doctor from the Chicago-Kent College of Law.
