Legal Treatise

Legal Treatise

Existing U.S. laws and regulations governing blockchain technology are minimal; however, authorities are working to align the need for regulation with the desire to pursue advancement.
We have developed a treatise that provides a comprehensive overview of federal, state, and select international laws governing blockchain technology. Where laws or regulations do not exist, this treatise aims to provide thoughtful analysis of how existing U.S. laws and regulations may apply to the intersection of blockchain technology and a variety of practice areas.
The broad range of topics covered in this treatise illustrates the need for legal practitioners to become acquainted with the technology, to understand how it may be governed by existing laws and regulations, and to become a participant in creating and supporting laws that protect individuals while also giving the technology enough space to encourage innovation throughout the entire blockchain ecosystem.

Piet

Piet

While the Ethereum network has provided a development space for smart contracts, Piet gives users a more in-depth look at the smart contract architecture and dependencies, and helps to analyze the code and to generate source code documentation.
Piet, at its core, gives users a detailed view of the inheritance structure of smart contracts. This allows users to view a selected contract’s state variables, functions, modifiers, and events. Additionally, while offering support for Solidity source files and Truffle build files, Piet can interact with the blockchain directly, à la RPCs or IN3, using an injected web3 object as an interaction point.
Overall, Piet provides developers with helpful visual and interactive services that make it easier to view and document smart contracts, their references, and source code. Access toolAccess tool

Opinionator

Opinionator

Voting in a governance system was a major development for the blockchain space, but unlike the space itself, there’s often very little nuance when it comes to how votes are weighed. Generally, Ethereum blockchain voting tools balance an individual’s voting influence based on their held Ether. However, Opinionator considers how users actually use a blockchain.
The Opinionator weighs votes based on four main groups: holders, users, developers, and miners. This allows those proposing votes to view and consider Ether balances, the amount of gas spent, the amount of gas spent using contracts deployed by the voter, and the accumulated difficulty of every block mined by the voting address, respectively. The Opinionator works to highlight these groups of voters, adding subtlety to a governance system for a community that is more than what they hold. Access toolAccess tool
