The European Union’s ("EU") General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"), which went into effect on 25 May 2018,  is the most significant overhaul of EU data protection rules in 20 years. It imposes stringent requirements on companies that collect, store, or process data about EU data subjects, regardless of whether their systems are in the EU. This pane will outline some of the blockchain properties that represent challenges from a GDPR perspective, describes various approaches for readying blockchain solutions for GDPR, and outlines the need for a robust governance process. And, of course, we will talk about the right to erasure.
