“LegalThings has been on the market for over four years, having worked with big clients, like the Dutch government and big corporations. Their unique experience and expertise paired with our cutting-edge technology will positively disrupt legal and blockchain industries, bringing them to a quality new level. LegalThings One is a great start of our partnership aimed at bringing compliance component into blockchain”, — says Waves CEO Alexander Ivanov.

“We are extremely excited to work together with the Waves Platform in order to bring blockchain to the real world. We strongly believe our partnership will be fruitful and help to bring about the mainstream adoption of blockchain on a wider scale. It’s a unique collaboration where the existing legaltech solution meets the cutting-edge distributed ledger technology. In the coming months, we are going to be working together on numerous projects for major corporations and governments around the world, details of which will be disclosed soon”, — says LegalThings CEO Rick Schmitz.
