“An important new book…[It] attempts to do for blockchain what the likes of Laurence Lessig and Tim Wu did for the Internet and cyberspace―explain how a new technology will upend the current legal and social order…A fine, deeply-researched book that can be expected to show up on law school syllabi for years to come…Blockchain and the Law is not just a theoretical guide. It’s also a moral one.”―Jeff John Roberts, Fortune
“Blockchain and the Law perfectly links technical understanding with practical and legal implications. Blockchains will matter crucially; this book, beautifully and clearly written for a wide audience, powerfully demonstrates how.”―Lawrence Lessig, Harvard Law School
“Useful to an educated readership…If you…don’t ‘get’ crypto, this is the book-length treatment for you. It sees merit and potential in crypto, without buying into any particular claim just for the sake of hype.”―Tyler Cowen, Marginal Revolution
“De Filippi and Wright offer neither a jeremiad nor a gospel; unlike the breathlessness that pervades much writing on blockchain technology, they stick to sensibleness and sobriety.”―Nathan Schneider, America
“At long last―a deeply researched, thoughtful, and measured analysis of blockchain technology and the policies that could help us harvest its opportunities and avoid its pitfalls. Blockchain and the Law should be required reading for anyone serious about understanding this major emerging element of our technological ecosystem.”―Yochai Benkler, author of The Wealth of Networks
“A well-written and comprehensive book that cuts through the blockchain hype. It not only highlights the powers and limitations of blockchain technology, but solidly grounds it in a larger social and legal context.”―Bruce Schneier, author of Data and Goliath
