Tech Talk: Smart Contracts as Legal Contracts

Blockchain technology is useful for more than just simply digital currencies like Ether and Bitcoin. Relying on a blockchain, parties can also deploy autonomous smart contract programs, which can be used to model all or parts of formal legal agreements. During this Tech Talk, we'll explore how blockchain technology is being used to increasingly automate legal agreements, issues related to enforceability of smart contracts, machine-to-machine contracting, and whether existing laws like the E-Sign Act, ESRA, and UETA are sufficient to address enforceabiity concerns.

Support for the Cardozo Tech Startup Clinic and the Cardozo Tech Talk Series has been generously provided by Frankfurt Kurnit.
