“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.”

Jennifer O’Rourke from Illinois Department of Commerce and Illinois #Blockchain Initiative (@IL_Blockchain) joined us in our Blockchain Law Class this week to provide her perspective on a variety of topics from digital identity to the role of government in blockchain related innovation. Above is a slidedeck similar to the version that she presented in our class.
Meanwhile Goldman suggests it all might be going to zero or better stated “most cryptocurrencies will ultimately fall to zero as current iterations are ‘too primitive’ to be viable in the long term.” There is merit to the Goldman view – I would say the question to focus upon is what is actually going to persist here -for us the key is probably helping incumbents learn how to incorporate crypto tech into their respective business models.
