Decentralized finance, commonly referred to as DeFi, has seen significant growth in the second quarter of 2020. Daily transaction volumes hit an all-time high of on June 21.

“At the heart of a smart contract, there is, by legal definition, a contract — even though it appears to be wearing a new outfit. The terms of the smart contract form the legal agreement between the two parties. That being said, consideration should be made as to whether the developer of the smart contract should also be liable.”
Consideration should be given as to governance — which regulator may be involved, which governing law does the contract rely on? Regulations may only have limited protection for smart contract vulnerabilities. Parties will still need to do their own due diligence on the smart contract in order to determine that it is fit for purposes. As the Latin phrase goes,‘caveat emptor’ — buyer, beware!
