Court System Distributed Ledger Technology
Although there are several intriguing, enterprise-level distributed ledger technology use cases -- including supply chain management and online banking -- the distributed ledger technology impact on the legal system is one of the most compelling examples of the technology's proliferation.
We develop services that offer several features that make it appealing for use in courtroom proceedings. Primarily, its decentralized network and its accessible yet advanced record-keeping make it a compelling technology for the legal system.
Perhaps most importantly, the distributed ledger technology is capable of protecting digital expressions of evidence, ensuring that all parties have access to the appropriate information while also guaranteeing an item's providence and fidelity. With the distributed ledger technology, input from different parties can be added, recorded, and distributed, providing a fully digital experience to a courtroom infrastructure that is progressively relying on an electronic approach to legal proceedings. Most importantly, this evidence can be cryptographically sealed, proving its providence and securing its authenticity.
To be sure, many distributed ledger technology-based initiatives are speculative at best. They make promises and offer intonations for various use cases, but, in reality, they are little more than a beta product. Nevertheless, when it comes to the legal system, it's clear that distributed ledger technology is ready for real implementation.
