Legal Nodes：Use Smart Contracts to Create Global Decentralized Law Firms
Nestor and Margarita from Legal Nodes delivered a keynote speech entitled, ‘The Application of Blockchain in Legal Services.’ Nestor pointed out the expensive features of legal services: 80% believe that legal services are extremely expensive, and the legal services industry has a market size of $76 billion. Among thousands of legal services, the top 100 law firms have monopolized more than 10% of the legal market, which makes it a highly centralized industry.
According to Margarita, in a global survey, more than 52% of respondents are willing to accept legal services provided by non-traditional law firms, and investment in emerging legal technologies has exploded in 2018, with an investment of more than $166 million.
All these offer possibilities for the application of blockchain technology in the legal area, and Legal Node’s vision is to, “use smart contracts to create global decentralized law firms,” which will reduce the cost of legal services by 40% and achieve a wider range of legal business coverage.
As one of the few blockchain themed forums, the EOS session was the only venue that was packed from the beginning to the end. This conference not only provided a stage for the new faces of EOS to show their ideas to Chinese users, but also each user was free to communicate and exchange ideas online. Each participating young person received an account registration invitation code for the EOS main network provided by MEET.ONE, so that young people can experience the EOS ecological vitality more conveniently.
Through the one-day series of lectures, the BPs and dApps of the EOS community systematically popularized the concept of the EOS blockchain to young people who are passionate about technology, demonstrating the development achievements of the EOS community within one year, and how they are looking forward to future development.
