As our expansion in the United States continues in 2020, Modex – the blockchain database company – will remain a Gold Sponsor of Stanford Journal of Blockchain Law & Policy, the first law journal to publish on the greater blockchain technology space.

The Stanford Journal of Blockchain Law & Policy (JBLP) features articles (peer-reviewed), essays, and comments both online and in print run. Edited by Stanford University-affiliated academics and practitioners based out of the Stanford CodeX Blockchain Group and part of the Stanford Center for Blockchain Research, JBLP fills a critical need in the field for a neutral, disinterested, and reputable platform to publish high-quality content and to advance discourse. The Journal’s print version is published twice a year in the Spring and Fall, and is preceded by online publication of the same content in the Winter and Summer.

According to its publishers, JBLP’s scope spans (but is not limited to) the legal aspects of blockchains and cryptocurrencies, regulatory and policy ramifications, governance, and the future of decentralization. Submissions are accepted year-round and can be sent in Microsoft Word format, together with a CV / resume, via Scholastica or by email to [email protected] The submissions need not focus exclusively on blockchain law and policy, but at minimum must include significant coverage. The articles must have 10,000+ words, the essays – up to 10,000 words, and Comments – under 3,000 words. It’s important to note that only articles undergo peer review.


Mihai Ivascu, CEO and Co-founder Modex: “In 2019, Modex continued its expansion by opening the company’s first office in the United States, in Silicon Valley, a few steps away from the Google Cloud, NASA, Yahoo and Oracle’s offices. Standford is a powerhouse for blockchain tech and this fits perfectly with out policy of expanding in the valley area.” If you are a researcher looking to publish on blockchain-related topics, you should contact JBLP. For 2021, the Stanford Journal of Blockchain Law & Policy has already announced Symposia: “Blockchain and Procedural Law – Law & Justice in the Age of Disintermediation. The first Symposium’s papers will be published in January 2021, and the second’s papers will be published in June 2021.

The Stanford Journal of Blockchain Law & Policy was co-founded by Steven Nam. Previously a Distinguished Practitioner at Stanford University, Steven was a Visiting Professor of Law at UC Davis Law School, antitrust attorney with Jones Day, and CSO of a Palo Alto-based blockchain startup. A glance at Steve’s LinkedIn profile reveals B.A at Yale University; J.D. at Columbia University School of Law and M.A. (Political Science) at Columbia University, New York.
