    In nearly every forum, blockchain has been described as one of the most transformative and disruptive technologies in decades.

    Blockchain technology is a major technological innovation that promises to work significant changes to the way we do business in several different fields. Those changes, in turn, will bring new legal challenges that our laws, courts, regulatory agencies, and other institutions will need to address. Given what we see as the wide scope and lasting impact of blockchain technology, we cannot expect to discern (much less solve) these legal challenges now; nevertheless, Blockchain for Business Lawyers looks at the challenges and analyzes legal developments that have occurred so far, and then offers possible resolutions.
