Not to be a Luddite but I do not see how this applies to the practice of law in the near future. Even if this tech goes mainstream, I can subscribe to a necessary service provider at that time. Until then, I will focus on practicing law, serving my clients, and accepting checks and credit cards as payment. I will let others spin their wheels prematurely on this.

This is not going to be an instant event. However I believe it will eventually be the way that lawyers collect their fees so it will be important in the future probably about 10 or 15 years from now with the law practice finally catches on. The law is not known for being up with the times.

Actually, Jay, you will be using blockchain without knowing it. Imagine a real property title chain in a particular jurisdiction, in which every transaction is added to a blockchain. The entire title chain would be accessible and secure forever. No more date of creation fights. And, that is just one of a thousand different applications for this technology. So, Luddite, pull your head out of the sand, and put your thinking cap on. :-)
