The Computational Law & Blockchain Festival is excited to announce that the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) will be sponsoring a $10,000 prize for the Smart Legal Contracts Challenge during the 2018 Computational Law & Blockchain Festival, which will take place on March 16-18, 2018, in distributed nodes around the world.
The Smart Legal Contracts Challenge is a distributed, 24-hour hackathon that challenges participants to build compelling smart legal contracts using the Ethereum blockchain.
“The EEA is proud to sponsor the Festival’s Smart Legal Contracts Challenge, which will serve as a natural space to explore new types of smart contracts that benefit legal professionals and law firms alike,” said EEA Executive Director Ron Resnick. “The event will help show very quickly which new blockchain use cases are worth additional exploration by the EEA’s Legal Industry Working Group.”
“We’re thrilled that EEA is sponsoring the Smart Legal Contracts Challenge, and look forward to collaborating with them on this first-of-its-kind event,” said Jameson Dempsey, Director of Legal Hackers.
