Agreements Network Marries Legal Contracts with Blockchain (via Ledger Insights)

“Monax announced that eleven organizations are partnering with the Agreements Network (AN) which turns ‘legal processes into products’. The network enables people to create legally compliant agreements from templates with a few clicks.

The project deserves attention because of the involvement of Monax which is known for contributing the code to Hyperledger Burrow.

The AN announced it’s working with law firms BakerHostetler, LegalBono and ErdosIP. Additionally, tech firm partners include Clause, Crowdcube, LexPredict, Libra, Mattereum, Monax, Rymedi, TransparentNode and Wolfram Blockchain Labs.”
