Distributed Ledger Technologies and blockchain are putting at stake the role of State. Namely, sovereignty of States in certain fields is challenged by the increasingly widespread use of crypto-assets and cryptocurrencies. This is particularly true if we focus on the so-called new “fora” flourished out of blockchain, i.e. platforms developed on blockchain to provide users with a dispute resolution mechanism working both on oracle based procedures and arbitral procedures. One might wonder whether and how such blockchain-based procedures mirror a distrust and dissent towards the State and the public institutions. In the light of these premises, this contribution aims to show that these new technologies are not laying in a vacuum; on the contrary, they are linked to traditional national legal systems. The question is how to connect the two worlds: the old traditional one, and the new one, which is bringing a paradigm shift to the way we might think, pay, trade, connect with each other.
