The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the challenges in legal systems to provide prompt dispute resolution and prevent backlogs, and the need for more efficient and technology-driven solutions. One potential solution is the use of blockchain technology to create a secure and transparent platform for virtual legal proceedings, allowing for the exchange of evidence, communication between parties, and streamlining of legal processes, while also providing access to justice for rural communities.
Blockchain technology can be used to create a decentralized platform for dispute resolution, providing a secure and transparent way to resolve conflicts without intermediaries. Smart contracts and the immutability feature of blockchain can facilitate evidence exchange and communication between parties, streamlining the process. Blockchain dispute resolution (BDR) is particularly useful for rural communities that face barriers to accessing the legal system. It saves costs, expedites legal processes, and provides secure and tamper-proof record-keeping and privacy protection.Close
