As I watch folks wrangle with the nature of cryptolegal space, my biggest clients are already starting to use blockchain fintech. I got referrals of blockchain stored contracts last month at my office. We need practical skills now, and the way to get it is by collaboration.
Some lawyers have strong coding skills and know what functions in crypto space. Some lawyers have analytical skills that are amplified by decentralized analysis. Some lawyers speak the languages of multiple groups and will be good communicators of decentralized legal concepts to the traditional legal world. Some lawyers have unambiguous, object-oriented natural language skills that will translate well into making legal documents that computers can parse. Startup lawyers are a clear part of this group, but we need to think past startup. This creation has a very long lifespan.
