Edmund Schuster on Blockchain Hype

Edmund Schuster, associate professor of corporate law at the London School of Economics, joins the Business Scholarship Podcast to discuss his article Cloud Crypto Land. In this article, Schuster explains why enthusiasm around blockchain and smart-contract technologies must confront rule-of-law concerns that would make their application to new legal and economic use-cases doubtful. Instead, he argues, these technologies should not be expected to meaningfully expand outside the realm of cryptocurrency.
