Blockchain will not kill a notary public, blockchain will kill modern notaries
A draft order of the Ministry of Justice was published on the federal portal of normative acts.
For the first time in 20 years, the agency was thinking about the imperfection of the procedure for appointing notaries, the lack of formal criteria for competitive selection, and clanism in the notary’s environment.
The proposed new procedure for selecting notaries would please me a couple of years ago. But not now, not now.
The reason for this is blockade. The notary will become one of the first areas of social relations.
No, the notary will remain, it does not go anywhere, he needs. But will not there be lawyers who are now seeking to win a competition for the replacement of this vacant post?
Does the essence of future changes reflect the score system introduced by the new document. In the points it is planned to measure the legal experience, the points will be awarded for a candidate’s degree.
How will the Ph.D. degree promote the blockade notarial?
The state should think about the need for the lawyers to develop blockade technologies. The version of the change that is proposed now is yesterday’s version.
Blockchain is a way to digitize the notarial activity
The paper notarization carries on if not the last days, then the last years.
What will change the digitization of notarial activities?
In conjunction with the blockade of the main state registries, this will be a very convenient and reliable system for registering the transfer of rights and conclusion of transactions.
For example key idea — and it will be so …
An inquisitive reader will say: “It’s all great. Many times I’ve heard and read it. I would like to have a concrete example.”
And that’s right. This is logical.
There were three sons from the peasant …
Remember the famous fairy tale, right?
So. There were three sons from the peasant and all three of them sat in the “girls”. Could not find his wife, who was extremely disturbed by his father.
After the death, he did not want to leave his house to homeless siblings.
So he decided to leave the will.
To make a notarization will is not a special problem now. Paper document, entry into the inheritance, negligence on instances, registration of arising rights.
In the era of the blockade of the notary, everything will be much simpler.
What about the Ministry of Justice?
And the Ministry of Justice places a draft order that “does not look forward.” This order changes what has to be changed 20–25 years ago.
And what is Ministry of education ?
The existing system of legal education prepares lawyers for legal activities “yesterday”, not “tomorrow”.
But the problem is that lawyers, ready to work “yesterday” — hundreds of thousands. But who will be ready to work “tomorrow”, under the new conditions — it is not clear.
And again we will be complained that the training of specialists does not meet modern requirements.
Needed a new legal specialization — Blockcity-Jurisprudence.
Legal activity in the new digital environment will significantly reduce the need for lawyers. A thousand times A smart contract will replace many routine actions.
Specialist knowledge will be necessary for the lawyer not only for the creation of smart contracts, but also for their reading. And this will not be the reading of the legal documents we are familiar with, but the reading and understanding of a certain code.
In the movie “In family circumstances,” there is a very good and kind dialogue between one of the protagonists and grandfather played by Lev Durov.
In a casual conversation on the stairs in the doorway, Grandpa asks, “Do you really think so?” What the main character replies: “I think so.”
Why did I remember this dialogue?
If you read this article, you ask me: “Do you really think so?”, I will answer you with the words of the heroine of the film.
We will see the blockade notarization not tomorrow, maybe not even in a year or two. But it will be much faster than we now seem.
