Blockchain in a Legal context
March 15 @ 6:30 am - 9:00 pm UTC+0
Join us for in a depth talk about the legal framework behind smart contracts. RSVP here to save your front row spot on March 15, starting 18:30!
About the event
Are smart contracts smart enough to function by themselves or is there human intervention required? Can you appeal a decision taken by a smart contract? How does the inherent immutability aspect of blockchain interfere with provisions of existing laws (e.g. right to be forgotten)? Does employing this type of new technologies create liability in the real world? All these and more are aspects we’ll try to debate in another panel Q&A with people coming from legal backgrounds, but having a special interest around blockchain and who can foresee aspects that will need clarification (or, maybe, would be incompatible) when the current legal system is being “translated” in smart-contract lingo.
