Blockchain and the Law

  • Categories: Law

Since Bitcoin appeared in 2009, the digital currency has been hailed as an Internet marvel and decried as the preferred transaction vehicle for all manner of criminals. It has left nearly everyone without a computer science degree confused: Just how do you “mine” money from ones and zeros? The answer lies in a technology called blockchain, which can be used for much more than Bitcoin. A general-purpose tool for creating secure, decentralized, peer-to-peer applications, blockchain technology has been compared to the Internet itself in both form and impact. Some have said this tool may change society as we know it. Blockchains are being used to create autonomous computer programs known as ...

The ways in which Internet traffic is managed have direct consequences on Internet users’ rights as well as on their capability to compete on a level playing field. Network neutrality mandates to treat Internet traffic in a non-discriminatory fashion in order to maximise end users’ freedom and safeguard an open Internet. This book is the result of a collective work aimed at providing deeper insight into what is network neutrality, how does it relates to human rights and free competition and how to properly frame this key issue through sustainable policies and regulations. The Net Neutrality Compendium stems from three years of discussions nurtured by the members of the Dynamic Coalition on Network Neutrality (DCNN), an open and multi-stakeholder group, established under the aegis of the United Nations Internet Governance Forum (IGF).

Radical Markets

Revolutionary ideas on how to use markets to bring about fairness and prosperity for all Many blame today's economic inequality, stagnation, and political instability on the free market. The solution is to rein in the market, right? Radical Markets turns this thinking--and pretty much all conventional thinking about markets, both for and against—on its head. The book reveals bold new ways to organize markets for the good of everyone. It shows how the emancipatory force of genuinely open, free, and competitive markets can reawaken the dormant nineteenth-century spirit of liberal reform and lead to greater equality, prosperity, and cooperation. Eric Posner and Glen Weyl demonstrate why priva...

La blockchain ? Une révolution équivalente à l'invention d'Internet ! C'est du moins ce qu'on en dit parfois. Mais quelles sont les répercussions réelles de cette technologie sur nos modes de vie ?Si Bitcoin nous permet d'échanger de la valeur de façon décentralisée et sécurisée, les nouvelles applications de la blockchain s'étendent sur des champs bien plus larges. Certaines de ces applications permettent de certifier et d'authentifier des documents, sans qu'il y ait besoin de recourir aux services d'un notaire. D'autres permettent d'automatiser des transactions, ou même de se coordonner sans passer par une quelconque autorité de confiance. Telle est la promesse de la blockchain : désintermédier en passant d'un système fondé sur la confiance à un système fondé sur la preuve.Primavera De Filippi décrit le fonctionnement de la blockchain, dont elle est l'une des meilleures spécialistes mondiales. Donnant un aperçu des applications en cours de développement, elle n'examine rien de moins que les implications politiques et sociales de cette nouvelle technologie qui n'a pas fini de faire parler d'elle.
