2019 Computational Law & Blockchain Festival: SF Node

  • Starfish Mission 1535 Mission Street San Francisco United States (map)

“[I]t makes most sense to see Bitcoin […] as a decentralized autonomous organization.” — Vitalik Buterin


The second annual Computational Law & Blockchain Festival (#clbfest2019) is a month-long global event bringing together coders, designers, lawyers, policymakers, researchers, and students to co-create the future of law, legal practice, and policy. In the spirit of decentralization, the Festival will be hosted at independent, self-organized nodes in cities around the world during the month of March.

This year, the SF Node will be focused on everything DAOs.

2019 is being hailed as the year of the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO). A DAO, in most instances, is an organization that operates based on rules which are encoded in smart contracts that run on a blockchain.

The SF Node will be exploring why DAOs are important, how they’re currently being used, and where the DAO space may go from here.

Join a group of hackers, , lawyers, and thought leaders as we dive into these questions. We’ll be kicking of the SF Node of the Computational Law + Blockchain Festival with a panel, a learning session, and finally some networking + mingling.
