Procuratorate Daily: In the judicial deposit, the shift from notarization endorsement to technical self-certification is an inevitable trend of blockchain development

The Procuratorate Daily published an article today on the Evidence Value of Blockchain Technology. According to the article, with the promotion of Internet courts and the establishment of several judicial blockchains, the cost of obtaining evidence and depositing certificates has been greatly reduced. This is extremely helpful in solving the current judicial situation in which the litigation cases are exploded and the judges are exhausted. However, it should also be noted that blockchain technology is not a flawless technology. In the future, more stringent rules of evidence should be introduced to protect the parties' cross-examination rights. In addition, the shift from notarization endorsement to technical self-certification is also an inevitable trend in the development of blockchain. Otherwise, the transfer of responsibility is easy to occur in practice, which may lead to both perjury and efficiency.
