Lin Shaowei, Southwest University of Political Science and Law: The variability of the law and the uniqueness of the code lead to contradictions between the blockchain and the law.

According to People's Daily News, recently, in the "Artificial Intelligence Month" activity of the reading club, Lin Shaowei, associate professor of the Civil and Commercial Law School of Southwest University of Political Science and Law and director of the Blockchain Research Center of the Artificial Intelligence Law Institute, said that the formatting rules should be deterministic. However, the diversity of legal language and the differentiation of legal functions lead to the diversification of legal rules. The rules in the blockchain system present uniqueness and certainty. Therefore, the variability of the law and the uniqueness of the code lead to contradictions between the blockchain and the law. He believes that it is neither necessary nor feasible to simply supervise blockchain technology. The blockchain “self-discipline” and the state intervention “law” need to be combined, and only this can achieve the minimum standards for blockchain governance.
