Announced last month at the OceanEx Meetup in Amsterdam. Statuses are a way to incentivize ecosystem builders who purchase a long-term position in Jur. Also present in the roundtable was Orsolya Szabó of ELTA Hungary, MaJesús González-Espejo of ELTA Spain, and Eva Brunch, the founder of digital transformation consultancy Alter Work. Jur’s participation was notable as the project has made great strides towards implementation in recent months, including the first private sale of a vehicle through the use of a DIY smart legal contract. https://twitter.com/JurProject/status/1192515805310795776?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1192515805310795776%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fcdn.embedly.com%2Fwidgets%2Fmedia.html%3Ftype%3Dtext2Fhtmlkey%3Da19fcc184b9711e1b4764040d3dc5c07schema%3Dtwitterurl%3Dhttps3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fjurproject%2Fstatus%2F1192515805310795776image%3Dhttps3A%2F%2Fi.embed.ly%2F1%2Fimage3Furl3Dhttps253A252F252Fpbs.twimg.com252Fmedia252FEIyqyoZX0AEi56m.jpg253Alarge26key3Da19fcc184b9711e1b4764040d3dc5c07 The event hosted more than 300 professionals from the field of legal tech, and the central discussion was all about the future of the industry in Europe.
