Innovation and connectivity are the new paradigms of our era. The sole purpose of a spider’s web is to secure value and to convey information. Nature inspired engineering is one method of lateral-thinking to leap-frog the linear progress of innovation. Satoshi Nakamoto created the Bitcoin and the Blockchain to secure the integrity and transferability of its value, an innovation that everyone looks to use to make that next big leap.
The legal industry plays two key roles in society, the provision of quality legal services and the enhancement of the socio-economic and political framework through its participation in the maintenance of the rule of law. Digital Ledger Technology (Blockchain) as a concept will be explained with a short introduction to its creation, what it is and how it works. The Hong Kong Monetary Authority commissioned the white paper on Distributed Ledger Technology on 11 November 2016 and annexure F to the White Paper 2.0 on Distributed Ledger Technology published on 25 October 2017 contains the Law Society’s innovative applications of Law to facilitate DLT.
