A panel discussion of the state of blockchain in the law and what the future holds. Featuring Alex Shahrestani, Brian Hall, Brian Konradi, and Mira Ganor.
I'm an attorney based out of Austin, and I work with startups in the tech and entertainment space because I'm excited about what those companies are trying to achieve. I've worked on the business side of an entertainment startup, and I'm the founder of my own tech startup to make legal services more efficient.
I come from a computer science background, and I'm really interested in the intersection between technology and the law. I think the underlying technology of blockchain applications is the wave of the future, so I particularly like working with blockchain companies. One thing I've come to understand, is that blockchain tech can be intimidating on multiple fronts - the people who understand the industry that a company is addressing may not understand the blockchain technology, and people who understand the underlying tech may not get the industry that a company is attempting to help.
This general murkiness is exacerbated when people come across legal terms that feel like opaque legalese. While I'm not your attorney, and an attorney-client relationship can't be formed unless we come to an explicit arrangement (and you shouldn't send me confidential info unless we make an explicit arrangement), I did a write-up of a blockchain company website's terms of service that you should feel free to use. I find that this tone invites trust with users.
I hope this is helpful, and that as your company has legal needs arise, you'll keep me in mind!
