About

Following the phenomenon of Bitcoin, businesses and lawyers are beginning to explore the unique technology on which it was built. Blockchain, a distributed ledger platform, is a secure, transparent, virtually instant and verifiable technology that can be used to support many kinds of transactions (like currency exchange) without much of the costly intervention of numerous intermediaries which reduce the value of the transaction. Health care, finance, supply chain and law are among the many industry sectors now discovering the disruptive impact blockchain can have on their businesses and services. These "smart contracts" or "intelligent transactions" can literally execute themselves.

Join us at the Blockchain and the Law conference at Vanderbilt University to learn from up to 20 blockchain practitioners and thought leaders from around the world in a fast-paced series of presentations with large blocks of time to network and interact with the speakers.
