Blockchain and its application, between scenarios and responsibilities

The Digital Talk of the International Alumni Chapter of Paris introduces us to the revolutionary technology of blockhain, its scenarios and its limits

Since the first prototype of blockchain was proposed in 2008 with Bitcoin , the technology has evolved significantly from public distributed ledgers to private alternatives (or semi-private) that can be adapted to different uses.

The evolution of Blockchain will be at the center of the Digital Talks of Tuesday April 20th, organized by the International Paris Alumni Chapter: “Blockchain : liberté et egalité ”.

During the webinar we will try to identify, both from a technological and legal perspective , a series of issues that have been raised by the introduction of a revolutionary technology such as blockchain within traditional business schemes.


blockchain can be considered as a quantum leap from distributed database technology; in fact, it allows to share a large register of transactions that are read, validated and stored in transaction blocks linked together, which form a chain of blocks - that is a blockchain .

The majority of blockchain applications integrate the technology to reach goals of:

  1. decentralization
  2. transparency and traceability 
  3. automation and scheduling 

The decentralized logic , proposed by blockchain technology, aims at replacing some actions reserved to a trusted intermediary ( trusted third party ) with pieces of code that execute transactions in a programmed and automatic way.

In this context, it is essential to identify the responsibilities of the parties that interact through blockchain transactions executed on time or in a programmed manner (the so-called smart contracts).

In the legal field, the contractual relations between the parties must analyze and describe in simple language the pieces of code that characterize the blockchain protocols used for the exchange of assets on blockchain (crypto-assets).


Il digital talks “Blockchain: liberté et egalité” sarà un’opportunità per conoscere meglio questa tecnologia e l’applicazione dei noti smart contracts. L’appuntamento è per martedì 20 aprile, alle ore 18.30.
