The Legality of Smart Contracts
Are smart contracts legally binding? How can tokens represent ownership of external assets? Are those transfers of titles recognised? Where are ether transactions stored when contract code is executed? How are state transitions validated? Will smart contracts work to the extent that people envision? Should we combine smart contracts with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), or is all of this tech still too immature?
These questions are from MOOC 9.6 and 9.7 sessions, which took place on March 23rd and March 30th 2018 respectively. Andreas is a teaching fellow with the University of Nicosia. The first course in their Master of Science in Digital Currency degree, DFIN-511: Introduction to Digital Currencies, is offered for free as an open enrollment MOOC course to anyone interested in learning about the fundamental principles.
