Oracles, Smart Contracts & Token Economy

Let me pose this question: are banks restructuring themselves in accordance with the non-traditional “decentralized” financial institutions — or were the “pioneer” DeFi projects just test cases for legacy institutions to observe and use as guinea pigs for a transition they were always going to make?

Smart Legal Contracts & English Law

Source: U.K. Law Commission Report on Smart Legal Contracts (November 2021)
  • Natural language contract with automatic performance by code: can also be referred to as an external contract because the code falls outside the scope of the parties’ legally binding agreement.
  • Hybrid contract: some of the contractual obligations are defined in natural language and others are defined in code.
  • Contract recorded solely in code: all of the contractual terms are defined in, and performed automatically by, the code of a computer program.

Ukraine: A Network State + Hi-Tech Park in Belarus

To Conclude:

I realize that “online government services in Ukraine” and “smart legal contracts as seen through English Common Law” are not the most glamorous topics, but I actually think these types of boring subjects are where much of the juicy details are hidden—you just have to know where to look and which lens to use.
