Blockchain technology is an emerging field at the intersection of law, technology, finance and information that promises to impact finance, government, law.

Blockchain technology delivers the ability to create an immutable data stream, an auditable trail of evidence and provenance.

“Smart contracts” allow for secure logical processes to act on the data.

The combination means that lawyers will be able to put many elements of contract deals “on chain”, that is, into self-executing code.

Users of blockchain tech have the ability to create cryptographically secure value tokens like notes, derivatives and agreements -- things previously created by lawyers.
