Case

Building a Blockchain solution

We advised an airline company on the legal aspects of an innovative blockchain solution they were planning to build.

After the airline company had drafted its whitepaper, we were engaged to advise on the legal aspects of their upcoming blockchain solution.

As with every IT project, it is important to make clear arrangements for the blockchain project as early as possible, for instance about the allocation of the intellectual property rights. Because personal data would be processed through the airline’s blockchain solution, and because blockchain is a relatively new technology, we advised to carry out  a Data Privacy Impact Assessment (DPIA).

Based on our experience with this project, we have put together  a list of nine questions to ask that may be useful when starting such a project. We hope this list helps you with your preparations for your own blockchain project. To check the list and get ready, click here (or below).

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or if you would like to hear more about how we can help you with your innovative projects.
