dc.description.abstract International law is a matter primarily for governments. Governments form and administer international law,1 and in this context, governments fascinatingly react to private commercial and financial initiatives. Businesspersons often challenge governments, and defining and conceptualizing this challenge is necessary to understand international law. United States President Donald Trump’s approach to international trade law should be seen in this light. He believes that the previous U.S. administrations did not make the necessary effort vis-à-vis corporations and foreign governments to favor the U.S. in foreign trade. President Trump believes that he is now giving the correct signals and incentives to businesspersons to contribute to the U.S. foreign trade and economy. A similar sort of tension exists in the approach of governments worldwide to the issue of cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrencies, e.g., Bitcoin, constitute a challenge to the current international financial and trade system as regulated by governments. Governments wish to control the development of cryptocurrencies through taxation, regulation, or even through prohibition. This Article sets forth two examples of evidence to substantiate the above argument: it starts by discussing international commercial law as a concept, with a focus on international commercial arbitration (“ICA”). This Article highlights the similarities between ICA and public international law dispute settlement. The Article then turns to cryptocurrencies, particularly bitcoin, the most important cryptocurrency for market capitalization. en_US
