The Most Unworkable State Law


The Cryptocurrency Industry has recently Criticized a Bill that was Recently Proposed in the Illinois Senate due to its “Unworkable” Expectations to compel Blockchain Miners and Validators to Perform “Unimaginable things.” One Example of this would fix Transactions if a State Court Ordered them to do as Such.


The Senate Bill was Clandestinely Submitted into the Illinois senate on February 9 by Illinois Senator Robert Peters. However, it doesn’t appear to be that the community was aware of it until February 19, when Florida-based attorney Drew Hinkes referenced it in a tweet.

The title of the bill was given to it because it would give the courts the authority to modify or withdraw a transaction that was brought out using a smart contract. Digital Property Protection and Policing,” and it would give the courts this authority in light of a substantial solicitation from the attorney general or a state’s attorney that is made as per the laws of Illinois.

Any “blockchain network that executes a blockchain transaction originating in the State” would be dependent upon the act if it were to Become Regulation.
With regards to Blockchain Technology and Cryptocurrencies, Hinkes referred to the proposed legislation as “the most impractical state regulation” he has ever seen.
“This is a Stunning about-face for a State that was beforehand supportive of innovation. All things considered, he tweeted that the state had enacted “probably the most impractical state legislation relating to Cryptocurrency and blockchain I have ever seen.”

According to the provisions of the law, miners and validators on the blockchain might be likely to fines going from $5,000 to $10,000 for every day that they disobey the directions of the court. It would be difficult for miners and validators to comply with the measure suggested by Senator Peters, despite the fact that he acknowledged the need of passing legislation that would increase consumer protection.


Hinkes was also Shocked to learn that Miners and Validators who worked on a Blockchain network that “has not taken on reasonably Accessible Processes” to comply with the court orders would have “no defense” open to them.
The law also appears to dictate that “Any person using a Smart Contract to Supply Goods and services” should include code in the smart contract that may be used to comply with court orders. This code can be used to Guarantee that the terms of the smart contract are followed.

“Any person using a Smart Contract to supply goods or services in this State should Incorporate smart contract code equipped for implementing court orders regarding the smart contract,” is the full text of the law.

Different members of the Bitcoin Community have answered with mocking of the measure in a way similar to what was recently said.

On February 19, the Crypto Analyst “Foobar” Remarked to the 120,800 people who follow him on Twitter that court-ordered transactions would should be changed “without having the private key” of the participants, which he found to be “clever.”
