Is Blockchain Legal? – The Confusion

Is Blockchain Legal

Sudden spike in rates of Bitcoin and numerous frauds across ICOs have confused the masses and created questions towards the legality of Blockchain. While the formers are cryptocurrencies, the latter is a technology that has cryptocurrencies as one of its numerous use cases.

People often consider Bitcoins & Blockchain as synonyms and question the grounds of Blockchain’s legality in the nation. Firstly, we need to understand that Blockchain and Bitcoins are 2 different entities.

What is Blockchain?

The Blockchain is a decentralized ledger onto which the transactions are recorded in an immutable manner. The transactions are always performed on the basis of community consensus, assuring the authenticity. In every 10 minutes, a new block is mined (formed) carrying records of transactions, where the information is encrypted through hashes (A hash is a function that converts an input of letters and numbers into an encrypted output of a fixed length). Each hash is pointing to previous and next hash, creating an immutable chain, as tampering with data or any hash would disturb the entire sequence.

The Blockchain is of 3 types, permission-based, private and public. In the former two types, only the participants have a complete access to the information stored on the chain, and in the latter, the information is transparent to public.

What is Bitcoin?

Satoshi Nakamoto, in January 2009 released a whitepaper on ‘Peer to Peer Electronic Cash System’, in that the term ‘Bitcoin’ is defined as cryptocurrency. Bitcoin is a currency powered by the Blockchain Technology, making it secure and immutable in nature. Transfers in cryptocurrency do not require an intermediary to perform verification, but this transaction takes place on peer-to-peer network triggering complete transparency. Therefore, making the transaction secure and tamper-proof.

Legal Aspect of Blockchain in various countries

“UN Agencies Turn to Blockchain In Fight Against Child Trafficking” (Source CoinDesk)

Certain governments have put the utility and trading through cryptocurrency on hold because they want to come up with regulations to curb the illegitimate activities they fear that can be done using crypto. Few countries have not reached the economic threshold required to execute the extensive practice of cryptocurrency in the market and without due diligence, simply banned their use in their respective country.

However, those who realised around 2014 that Blockchain has more implications than cryptocurrency alone, started to invest in and explore including Dubai, Singapore, Switzerland to name a few. All these countries realised the importance to deploy this technology in various domains.

Gradually, world is opening and willing to inherit the utility of Blockchain, which is not just logical, but most transparent version of doing things right. Embracing this technology can help the governments establish groundwork for their citizens that “all processes can be transparent, corruption free, safe and immutable.” It can make various structures more trusted amongst the people. Hence, this technology ‘Blockchain’ that coined the phrase ‘decentralised ecosystem’ is neither banned in any country and neither is it illegal to implement its use cases in any part of the world. But, legality comes in question only for the cryptocurrency.

Many potential leaders across world believe that technology holds the same significance.

Whereas most technologies tend to automate workers on the periphery doing menial tasks, blockchain automates away the centre. Instead of putting the taxi driver out of a job, blockchain puts Uber out of a job and lets the taxi drivers work with the customer directly.” —Vitalik Buterin, co-founder Ethereum and Bitcoin Magazine.

Blockchain is a technology tour de force”- Bill Gates.

I have been at this 35 year, writing about the digital age. I have never seen a technology that I thought had a greater potential for humanity” – Don Tapscott Writer.

The Blockchain is in its nascent stage and yet revolutionising the finance sector. LALA World is one such progressive organisation which with its product ecosystem is growing towards development of Blockchain based sustainable solution to impart right knowledge and positive change in the society. LALA World acknowledged the fact that “Blockchain is unstoppable” (despite of all the confusions) soon enough to make an impressionable change in the fintech industry.

Global Adoption of Blockchain by Governments

Blockchain is the technology that is majorly supporting the operation of cryptocurrencies. However, its operations are not limited to merely the crypto-economy and are useful across various industries. It is the robust functionality of Blockchain technology that has caught the eyes of governments across the world. Countries are constantly competing against each other in terms of technical development and innovations. Many governments are funding researchers to better understand the potential of Blockchain and some are already in the process of testing its applications. The new age technology has the potential to revolutionize domains, including, Healthcare, National Identity Management Systems, Tax and Internal Revenue Monitoring, Voting and Secure Banking Services.

There are many countries where Blockchain is gaining pace and making a difference in the lives of people.

Dubai

Dubai continuously explores and evaluates latest technology innovations that demonstrate  opportunities to create seamless, safe, efficient and impactful economy. Dubai aims at introducing Flying Taxis, self-driving vehicles and actual ‘Robocops’. The country already employs new technologies before the world wakes up to them. With this, government hopes to become the first-ever Blockchain-powered country by the year 2020. Citizens are currently enjoying the leverage of embracing this technology and facilitating license renewals, bill payments and visa application through it.

As Dubai is a popular holiday destination, hosting millions of tourists and visitors every year, manual engagement is very high in processing and estimating 100 million documents. The processes are made paperless in transaction system that are hosted entirely on the Blockchain. This development can help save a lot of money and time.

Estonia

The government of Eastern European nation of Estonia has actively been trying to deploy sustainable Blockchain-based solutions for many government activities. They have instilled Blockchain directly in the roots of citizenship by installing the model of Blockchain-based national identity management system. ID-kaarts has been able to reduce bureaucratic red-tape, thus improving the timelines and quality of government service delivery to Estonian citizens.

Gibraltar

This nation was swift in implementing Blockchain technology in the Fintech industry. Government won the race by issuing licenses that allow Blockchain to be used as ducts for the storage and transfer of digital assets. The GBX (Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange) allows the integration of Blockchain in trading and settlement system.

Singapore

Singapore, being a small island, is still counted amongst the biggest, most powerful Fintech hub across the globe with over 200 banks. The nation being relatively liberal, welcomes innovation, emerging technologies and has built a diverse ecosystem to support more than 150 start-ups on Blockchain-based technology, making Singapore the new California Dream for some intrepid blockchain explorers. The real estate industry is also adapting this technology in the most advanced manner. The transactions in this industry have become more transparent and secure by deploying smart contracts. The processes when run on Blockchain, save time and money by eliminating the paperwork and digitizing agreements.

 

United States

There is a project that is designed for individualisation and improvement in the security of identities. It can be achieved by incorporating Blockchain Technology in proposed birth registry and identification system. In US Federal Government, both Pentagon and DARPA are reportedly focussing their attention on theoretical immutability of Blockchain. Through this, they aim to design a robust and secure network for protocol to run without the threat of interception or hacking.

Some Blockchain based applications are being pursued or leveraged by various governments from all around the world. While Cryptocurrencies continue to be shrouded in a lot of restrains, this technology continues to be interesting proposition for many governments. It is here to stay and governments are most likely going to espouse it.

LALA World having the first movers advantage, has been a part of this drive working towards making an impact globally with implementations of Blockchain technology in the Fintech Industry. With its consumer centric products being launched, the whole LALA Ecosystem is now shaping up. Embracing this cult technology is the new way to build a world that’s truly financially connected.
