Isn’t blockchain just for cryptocurrencies like BitCoin? Actually, these distributed databases can do much more than track funds. Being resistant to change but also transparent, blockchains can be used to store all kinds of data, particularly legal data.

We will also explore how blockchains are incorporated into legal research and practice – from legal contracts to real estate transactions and authenticating documents.
