Post by: on September 12, 2018, 11:47:58 AM
The Supreme Court of China recognized the validity of evidence authenticated in the blockchain. And in Beijing, opened the second Internet court.

So, almost imperceptibly, in the legal science, there was a real legal tech revolution. Letís try to figure out what value this will have for the digital economy and for legal reality.

Questions about the acceptance of information stored and confirmed in the distributed ledger arose after the establishment of a separate judicial panel in Hangzhou, China to deal with disputes related to digital data and Internet technologies. The precedent did not wait for itself. The court rose to defend copyright, confirmed only in the blockchain. As a result, the case reached the highest court.
