Bonus: Sir Geoffrey Vos, Chancellor of the High Court

20min listen

We. Are. Here. In today's bonus episode of Blockchain Insider, we bring you a fantastic interview with Sir Geoffrey Vos, Chancellor of the High Court and chair of the UK Jurisdiction Taskforce.

In this bonus episode, we bring you an interview with the Chancellor of The High Court, Sir Geoffrey Vos, to hear his views on the current state of English law and blockchain technologies. Is there a substantial legal ground in place to solve disputes arising on a blockchain? Are coders disregarding the need for a strong legal foundation?

The Chancellor is currently working with the lawtech delivery panel on a public consultation on the status of crypto assets, distributed ledger technology and smart contracts under the English law. They are currently accepting feedback on the document until the 21st of June. The Chancellor joins us to discuss the current state of the English law around crypto technologies and why there is a need for this consultation.

If you want to get involved, click on this link, review the consultation paper and fill out the form before the 21st of June.
