Tudor-Matei Rusu: Blockchain Dispute Resolution


Abstract: The alternative dispute resolution methods (ADR) are not something new, neither the online dispute resolution platforms (ODR). In the last period of time more and more online platforms started to use blockchain to settle disputes. The blockchain technology is used by the platforms to set up arbitration, organize dispute adjudication and reward the arbitrators. Also, it can be used in a way which allows the disputing parties interact with each other through the platform, while the latter acts like a mediator, using algorithms that facilitate the interaction between the parties.

Keywords: blockchain; alternative dispute resolution methods (ADR); online dispute resolution methods (ODR); online platforms; Kleros
