The advent of blockchain enabled new models in arbitration. Decentralized justice combines blockchain, collective intelligence and innovative mechanism designs based on game theory in order to build cheaper, faster and more transparent dispute resolution procedures. In this talk, we will discuss the application of blockchain in arbitration and the experience and learnings of Kleros, the first company having launched a live decentralized justice platform. We will discuss the future perspectives and key use cases for decentralized justice and how it could transform the arbitration industry.

He is alumni at Singularity University and hosts the first Coursera course about blockchain in Spanish. He is a TEDx speaker. He is co-founder and CEO at Kleros, a decentralized organization that uses crowdsourcing and blockchain for dispute resolution
