May 10, 2018 - Professor Aaron Wright's book Blockchain and the Law, co-authored with Primavera De Filippi, was reviewed in Fortune magazine. Wright and de Filippi spoke to a standing-room only audience Wednesday, May 9 at Cardozo, on a panel moderated by Cornell law professor James Grimmelmann.
The review commented, "Blockchain and the Law is not just a theoretical guide. It’s also a moral one, as De Filippi and Wright warn that governments who ignore lex cryptographica could lose control of the emerging world of blockchain. If a government does not provide protective mechanisms … the current regulatory framework government by the rule of law may eventually be replaced by a system of algorithmic governance, operated exclusively through the rule of code."
