Workshop Law Is Code – Day 1 – Sign Your First Smart Contract (given in English)


Understand the potentialities of Blockchain technology to disrupt the legal industry with Smart Contracts

After a basic introduction to Blockchain (the technology powering Bitcoin amongst other crypto-currencies and applications), you will discover how it can be used to power self-enforcing agreements called Smart Contracts. You will be given the opportunity to review 2 use cases for smart contracts (copyrights enforcement and fundraising) and see how they compare to their traditional counterparts. You will understand the fundamental opportunities and challenges linked to this technology.
At the end of the session, you will be able to deploy your very first smart contract on the Ethereum Test Blockchain, showcasing the world that you ventured in this new exciting space!
