Smart Contracts and Blockchains

Over the past few years, blockchain based technologies have gone from a cryptographic experiment to a hugely popular concept, powering technologies that result in transactions worth billions of dollars per day and being embraced by banks and financial institutions. Beyond immensely successful currencies, such as bitcoin, proponents claim that blockchain based technologies, such as smart contracts, might soon be able to replace several functions of the legal system. During this theme week, we will explore the underlying technologies that power these truly decentralized currencies and systems, the potential applications of the systems in the legal sector and discuss the resilience of the technologies in times of crisis, such as the current pandemic.
