How to make sure a Smart Contract is also a Contract

Bring real world businesses onto the blockchain by ensuring smart contracts are also real contracts

As I discussed in my previous article From Contract to Smart Contract a Smart Contract is not necessarily a contract in it self.

If the Smart Contract is designed to be run 100% autonomously you don’t necessarily need what a normal legal contract offers you. But very few things live entirely on the block chain for now.

From Contract to Smart Contract in Ethereum

Published January 10th, 2016 edit replace rm!

Smart Contracts as defined by Nick Szabo always fascinated me. I experimented with early versions of this, but Ethereum has finally come up with what looks like the first practical implementation.

This is the first in a series of articles about implementing Smart Contracts on Ethereum in the real world.

What actually happened at Kipochi?

Published January 9th, 2016 edit replace rm!

Kipochi the startup I helped found 3 years ago is in the news again. While the whole story ended up pretty painful for me I did learn a lot from the experience. It's been a while now so I think it's time to tell the story from the inside.

First some background

I started Kipochi in Feb 2013 together with a consortium of Danish guys with experience in telcom in Africa. I brought technology from a previous startup Economi.co that I shut down and they were in charge of money and sales.

Our original goal was to partner with telcos in Africa and Asia to create an alternative to local operator owned mobile money operators (MMO) like MPesa.

This was to be based on Bitcoin and allow interoperability with any vendor. Our goal from a tech point of view offer a consumer wallet based on USSD and mobile web. This would be branded by local operators.

We would also provide a solution for operators to use their existing agent network to buy and sell bitcoin.
