  • Tezos was created first and foremost to address a governance issue in decentralized cryptographic ledgers. It does so by allowing stakeholders to approve updates to the protocol, including the consensus algorithm, and the governance rule themselves. Tezos is written in OCaml (a functional programming language) and rely on Coq for advanced proof checking and formal verification. Source code will be opened and available later this year.

    Arthur Breitman of "Tezos" gave this presentation on this new technology on Wednesday, August 31st at Monetas HQ (Zug – Switzerland)

  • Introduction

    This talk will be about why complete Decentralization and Immutability matter for public block chains, and why it is impossible to have one without the other. This will be used as the basis to discuss the consequences of the recent Ethereum Hard Fork, and what it could mean for the viability and integrity of the platform and its dapp developers.

    The Topic:

    Distributed Ledger Technology aka Blockchain is gaining recognition in both private and public sectors. The peer-to-peer technology promises to disintermediate, streamline and standardize processes across a wide range of industries and public service offerings. Although a key innovation of Blockchain Technology is the sophisticated level of self-governance it enables, the technology needs to be recognized by national and international laws and regulations to go from fringe to mainstream. At the same time, Blockchain-based applications and services need to incorporate an understanding of relevant legal norms into their codified rulesets.

    How can we combine the empowering properties of distributed ledgers with the legal tools and frameworks our society has evolved?

    Let's hear it from the view of a Lawyer.
